So for the first time in well over a year I'm a free man all weekend long with no kids and wife in the house. Since I work 4 10s this also means I have a full 3 day weekend. Incidentally, I've grown increasing active in streaming my Dwarf Fortress hobby (yes I run stonesense in the stream so mortals can understand what i'm doing). So I decided a while back that this will be the weekend I attempt a 24-hour dwarf fortress gaming marathon on Twitch. Being the computer nerd/researcher I am, I decided to read around and realized there's actually some pretty serious health concerns involved with this. The biggest thing I've read is that I should take a 10 minute break every hour to keep my heart/veins from imploding. Is there any suggestions for food/snacks/drinks that will help reduce the chance of dying while doing this?
I originally planned on getting a few 5 hour energy drinks, but I think instead a 6-pack of Gatorade and water may be a better choice.
