I sleep a total of two hours per day.
I follow a sleep schedule where I sleep for 30 minutes every six hours, and that's it. I nap at 4:30 and 10:30 am/pm, and get up at 5 and 11 am/pm. The rest of the time, I'm up.
This is known as the dymaxion sleep schedule: http://www.polyphasicsociety.com/polypha.../dymaxion/
And before you ask; no, it's not unhealthy. The adaption period leaves you completely sleep deprived and feeling brain-dead, but once you're past that and into it, you get the same amount of restorative sleep as any monophasic sleep schedule.

Wow, so you have as much energy as a regular person would have with a sleep schedule of 8pm-5am.

I'm not completely adapted, so not quite, but I have the same amount of energy now as when I slept 4-6 hours a night, which I'd been doing for months, previous to this.

What made you choose this way of sleeping? And how long does it usually take to be adapted?

sleep isnt only for energy. for instance, your muscle mass builds when you sleep, so if you lift a lot you would want a good 8 hours of sleep to allow your muscles to rebuild properly. theres tons of other reasons why you need more sleep but i doubt you would listen, you seem pretty convinced this is the way to go.

Well if you eat a certain amount of food (somewhere just below the recommended servings I think) and your heart will pump more efficiently, or so I hear.
So now Jew can be Mr. Efficient!

I've been thinking of trying something like this the only thing is I am in school now and I would die if I was completely brain dead :p

I actually was talking about this with some friends earlier. I thought of actually trying it, but figured it would be hard to get away with with considering I have school 5 days a week.
