What am I? (UD2)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Could it be, perhaps "4's not in the top 3 yet"?

Very good effort, you're spot on on 4 out of the 7 words, and almost got it with another 2... Also, you correctly guessed my use of the apostrophe...

Hints:
My sentence only contains 1 number...
The number is spelt out in letters not digit...
Try to feed your attempt to babelfish and see if the same Russian text is reproduced (they're consistent as far as I know)...

How about:

I'm not into the upper three yet.


I was extremely tired yesterday, having been awake for 27 hours, at the moment that stands at 39 hours and I'm desperately trying to get to bed.


Correction - It should have been 51 hours not 39 hours, it just shows you how tired I was this morning, simple addition was beyond me.

As you see I've corrected the above figure from 39 to 51 hours.
That was from 07:00 Tuesday to 10:00 Thursday morning.

So, udosuk, I broke your record by 43 hr 45 min.

It seems your impressive lack of sleep has affected your reading eyesight and common sense thinking too...

Either you've stayed awaken for 31.75+43.75=75.5 hrs (3 whole days+3.5 hrs), or you've misread my "of" as "by"... If 39-31.75=7.25 hrs was my record, that would mean I sleep for more than 16.75 hrs everyday, which would make me either a vampire or a mummy...:!:

And somehow I miss-marked your answer as 100% correct... In fact you got one word wrong - I wrote "I'm not into the top three yet..." not upper... So you were only 85.7143% correct...

Not if you lived on Jupiter or one of the other gas giants. Anyway, you're all a bunch of lazyheads; I stayed "awake" for 87 hours once but it was more of a trance after about 50 hours and then I perked up again in the late 70's. Funnily enough, only slept for 4 hours after the 87 before waking again and seeking and eating prodigious quantities of Chinese takeaway food. I may say that I was about 20 years younger than I am now.

Where am I:?: What happened:?:

The last couple of days have been a blur, anything I said or stated cannot be taken into consideration or used as evidence against me.

I plead the fifth.

The thing that puzzles me, in the state I was in, is how did I ever translated udosuk's Russian sentence with a 100%, correction, 85.7143% accuracy:?:

I also caught this late, but this one looked clear to me (Especially because Aussies were invloved).......

The boss seems to be still in the top 10, Shahrazad is still in her 311th night & Xenon now has an isotope with an atomic weight of 396:D

Aussies are invloved (short for inversely loved) all over the world...:D

Inversely: A thing that is the opposite or reverse of another.

"Inversely loved" would mean the opposite of loved and that would be hated.

So, udosuk, are you saying Aussies are hated all over the world:?:

Hmm... well, Foster's might not be my first choice on a hot sunny day like this, but I wouldn't go as far as saying I hate everything Australian... Your beaches look nice and I wouldn't mind having one of them up here in Finland.:D

Are you suggesting that I made a spelling mistake:D ??

You must be joking, I was in Finland in June, I had a sun burn.

As I said, it's a hot sunny day, and where I'm right now there's no miles long beaches with crystal clear water and big waves coming in from the pacific ocean... Yes, we have lots of beaches here also, but the main problem is that the water doesn't get really warm until the end of the summer. Although I like to swim in the middle of the winter also, but that's a completely different issue.:)
