As a companion piece to Kevin’s earlier post, there’s a (to me pretty questionable) report on a Vietnamese man who, after suffering fevers in 1973, has since been unable to sleep—at all—in the past 33 years.
“I don’t know whether the insomnia has impacted my health or not. But I’m still healthy and can farm normally like others,” [Thai] Ngoc said.
Proving his health, the elderly resident of Que Trung commune, Que Son district said he can carry two 50kg bags of fertilizer down 4km of road to return home every day.
His wife said, “My husband used to sleep well, but these days, even liquor cannot put him down.”
She said when Ngoc went to Da Nang for a medical examination, doctors gave him a clean bill of health, except a minor decline in liver function.
