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

1) During World War II at the Sweden-Norway border, 77 was used as a password, because the tricky pronunciation in Swedish made it easy to instantly discern whether the speaker was native Swedish, Norwegian, or German.
2) Walking through a doorway affects your memory.
3) Where can I find an adorable video of a cat hugging a baby kitten who is having a nightmare? Right here.
4) Your golden birthday is the year you turn the same age as the date on which you were born (e.g. turning 22 on the 22nd). The two most significant golden birthdays are 23 and 31. 
5) The Ancient Astronauts theory "proposes that historical texts, archaeology and legends contain evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact." Upon review, I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.
