No not 12 but 9 and if I'm sore after that I don't even want to know your pain.

I had to a few times while life guarding a few summers ago. An 8-8 in the hot Texas sun wasn't a whole lot of fun.

It never bothered me, just that my feet were a bit sore. But then again back then after I finished my shift I went straight to my martial arts classes. Was always full of energy, so that helped.

I actually think it depends on what you are doing.

12 Hours a day of hard labor, yes you will feel fatigued. 12 hours a day sitting on my fat ass in front of a computer, no.

I currently work 8 hours a day 7 days a week (2 Separate jobs). Main job involves sitting at a computer (5 days). Second job on my feet all night (2 days). I need the exercise.

I worked 13 hours a day 7 days a week for a few months last fall. Never really got that tiresome since I had so much fun working with the animals. It was on a farm. Woke up at 4, had breakfast, worked 5 to 18, had supper and crashed instantly when I went to bed at ca 19.30.

Never worked a 12 hour but I enjoy 4 days a week 10 hours a day. 3 days off is a lot better than two even if the working days are rougher.

Pretty sure your taste buds are broke, you might wanna get that checked out just saying.

Anyway I work about 9-10 hours. A couple of jobs I did in the past made me work up to 11. I don't mind too much.

I've never pulled 12 straight but I have done a full shift at one job and a second full shift at another job back to back before. Its miserable so I can only imagine the pain of twelve straight
