    There's a word for the feeling of not wanting to get out of bed

    Isn't it great when there's actually a word to reflect such a distinct feeling? Dysania is the word we're referring to in this case. We've all had the feeling of not wanting to leave bed. Some of us are even feeling it right now, at 3 in the afternoon. The feeling almost feels more valid knowing there's a name for it, right?

    The record number of days you can go without sleep is 11

    This is unimaginable. I can't even fathom going to bed past 11 p.m. If you can avoid it, we definitely recommend not going 11 days without sleep. The symptoms of sleep deprivation do not sound fun -- confusion, memory loss, hallucinations, and even death.

    Deaf people have been known to sign during their sleep

    Just like hearing people sometimes talk in their sleep, deaf people sometimes sign in their sleep! It's so interesting (and maybe a little scary?) all of the things you can do while you're still asleep!

    How many of these facts did you know?
