Insomnia and Me: 5 Things I've learned before 5:00am - Part VI

1) Lewis Carroll is considered a Jack the Ripper suspect. 
2) Ron DiFrancesco was the last person to make it out of the South Tower of the World Trade Center before it collapsed on September 11, 2001. One of only four people to escape from above the eighty-first floor, DiFrancesco described feeling a presence that guided him through the fire and smoke consumed stairwells.
3) You can learn a lot about yourself from just a few simple questions.
4) The Soundsnap website provides sound clips organized by category ranging from ice clinking in a glass to boat fog horn.

5) In 1903, a stone phallus weighing 2.2 tons was unearthed in rural Ohio. I would've guessed Idaho.
