What is the longest period of time you've been unconscious for?

10-15 minutes. When I was a kid I ran into the house and promply fell dow a flight of stairs in the basement. Next thing I knew, I was in my bedroom with the shades pulled.

I passed out on Arnie Persinger's foot in the sixth grade. I saw sparkles, but I don't think I was actually unconscious. Other than that, I was out for several hours during surgery in 1999.
