Similarly, staying up all night to study for an exam is silly.
This is of course a stupid solution to a completely different problem, but those courses didn't inspire me to try my best... if I had another chance, I don't know if I would try harder. I know that sounds bad.
"I don't need no Calculus" is a fail in the analysis, "I dont need no Media Studies and the effect of the Female Eunach on Porn Pay per TV channels" is not.
I've never remembered anything after a cram. And really, if you're only studying for the exam (and we know how much of school knowledge we use in the real world) then school is pointless if not for a piece of paper you get at the end.
But if that works, perhaps it was weight causing poor sleep and memory retention. Or alcohol abuse. I'm not saying this research can't be done but it's a lot more trustworthy if you either 1. randomize subjects and do a treatment or 2. have a much larger dataset and statistically control for these suspicious factors.
Granted, I also partied non-stop the whole summer.

Cost benefit analysis are done against what you might have done, and the results of that, and actions that would have caused more desirable outcomes are projected, as best as it can see, and the habits, and motor neurons are reconfigured accordingly, this explains why when you get good sleep, and you wake up, you find yourself much better able to do tasks than had you not slept. If you don't sleep, you die.
Source of these points:
Title is misleading, this function also has to do with encoding short term memories to long term memories. Since the mind only has limited space (limited number of neurons to configure), that only the most useful memories are stored into permanent disk. Disruption of the 7 to 9 hour sleep cycle garbage collects the memories that were about to be stored. The mind queues them up to be dealt with the following day, but sometimes are displaced or missed by more passionate things in the present.
Sleep is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your mind and keep it in top running condition for as long as possible, not too little, not too much, sleep in intervals of 90 minutes. If you consume garbage knowledge on a daily basis, your mind will encode that garbage to permanent disk, and you will become that garbage.
Conspiracy theorists suffer from a mental misconfiguration where the cost function applied to the neural network of neural networks suffers from "over fitting". Finding patterns in randomness leading to conclusions are not valid. A lambda function can be applied against the cost function which will alleviate this. I can do it in software, and when I discover the operating principles of the neo cortex, I will be able to fix all the conspiracy nuts in the local nut house. Take care to not take for granted the fresh slate of your mind while you are young, because when you are old, it'll be mostly full and encoding new skills to disk much more difficult, the cost function is more reluctant to modify the grids since doing so would damage your ability to consume resources, find mates and create more of you. Fill you mind with timeless wisdom and get good sleep before your hard disks become full.
No human has ever died from simply not sleeping (excluding accidents, etc caused by lack of sleep)
Wouldn't this work the other way, too? Not finding patterns in what turns out to not be randomness sometimes ends up getting you killed. It's a fine line between paranoia and attention to detail. Anyone with aspirations to "fix" this should probably take that into consideration.
not finding the signal from the noise, because joe hitting me 10 times in a row is not conclusive, because most humans never hit me. and joe is wearing new clothing, so it's safe because joe is a human.
