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

1) In a deck of cards, the King of Hearts is known as the suicide king or King Charles (named after Charlemagne). It's debated whether the sword striking the king is his own or another's. Suspects include the Queen of Spades.
2) This kitten doesn't want a bath. Been there right?
3) The Taman Shud Cas
e is an unsolved case of an unidentified man found dead in South Australia in 1948. His body was found on Somerton beach with a half smoked cigarette and all the labels from his clothing removed. The phrase "tamam shud" which means "ended" or "finished" was written on a page from a collection of poems titled The Rubaiyat and was found in a hidden pocket of the man's pants.
4) Coffee's for closers only.
5) The Moai of Easter Island are monolithic human statues carved from rock. Archaeologists don't know why the statues were built, what they signified, how they were transported, or why they were abandoned unfinished.
