    Hi-ho the boffins are bashin' me brain again :p

    Apparently when folks share their bed, it results in less satisfactory sleep than when sleeping alone. Women it seems are able to compensate with a deeper level of sleep. Men alas don't....... instead we experience greater levels of stress producing hormones - as a result it affects our ability to perform cognitive tasks the next day.

    So way to go - tell the insomniacs of the World they've got something else to worry about - cos' that's gonna help folks sleep at night :ouch: :)

    My only hope is that eventually, I reach the point at which I realise that insomnia is nothing to lose sleep over - leastways there's a chance it will help me forget all about my amnesia.......

    I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather.... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    It's all very well, but is this stuff cumulative, does it get worse as time goes on ? I was going to be famous ...... I had ambitions - for instance, I'd kill to win one of those Nobel peace prizes ! Oh I know what people will say, get rid of the lass, free yourself, but honestly - we've been married so long now, it's almost like she's family......:D

    Gadzooks young e-o....what a sap!

    Acourse it's progressive! Look at Chise, look in the mirror....look at the last poster! I, on the other hand, was able to avoid this conumdrum when, while still a newborn in the nursery, they wuz passing out brains....I thought they said trains....so I chose a Lionel! In all these years it has never jumped the track but I do fall down occassionally.

    Cor blimey - I tries to better meself and the next thing I know - I'm being carbon dated by Goth Gal.

    Well I've got a plan see Nutty Natty. I've rested me brain, done some maths and realised what this thread needs is some new blood. I know just how to get it as well - a picture of Tux.

    I found out it's like catnip for our overworked mods :-* . You'll see, just like the Batlamp - they can't ignore it :) . Before the virtual ink has even dried they'll be here, making you behave and telling me how clever I am for knowing how to introduce style and dignity to a thread :p

    A little quakka moly goes a long way when yore chips run low. Style and dignity are akin to pompy circumstance an we all know how the Brits are at putting in on a Ritz. I allus goes for the crackers after a nap.

    Your brain sometimes lack!

    No seriously now. My grandmommy had false teeth, right,... and she was real talented with her toungue, turning her false teeth all the way around in her mouth. And everytime she spoke, her teeth would shatter and make that kind of noise. Heh...my brain
    still remembers it to this day ! :D

    Eddy...do yours do the same ?? :) Or ANYBODIES o_O

    And I know a Dude, {he's actually a Redneck, very inventive with his brain...it's powerful ! :eek: } he's also pretty cheap and instead of cotton swabs - pipecleaners...he uses his keys to clean his ears. I tell ya...the first time I saw him do it...my mouth dropped.
    WHY aren't WE using our BRAINS, and do things that are economically efficiant, useful, and doesn't cost a thing !??

    I think they both have/had a brain as that of an elephant !
    Really smart, don't ya THINK ?? :cool:



    All powers to the 'Brains" !!!
