An 80-year-old man in Vietnam claims he hasn’t slept in 60 years. Thai Ngoc said in a recent interview that he was able to sleep in the midst of war from 1955 to 1975. However, in 1962, he just stopped sleeping.

Ngoc says his decades-long insomnia is a complete mystery to him, as well as the doctors who haven't been able to provide any reason for his condition. When it comes to resting, the octogenarian says if he drinks enough rice wine, he’ll able to get an hour or two of sleep. Otherwise, Ngoc says he passes the time by working, making rice wine and drinking green tea.
