    Yes it was, never been abroad so I dont know the feeling. Liked the way that it had only ever been done on mice though, they were the first human tests done. I didnt know the brain had a way of resetting itself in that way.

    Snoring one was funny to listen to I thought.

    I didn't know that either. I'm not too sure if I could do it. Jet lag doesn't seem to affect me that much.

    The 1st snoring guy was horrific, his poor wife.

    I hate having my dogs on the bed, it's a king size but they choose to sleep right beside you.

    Yes same here, I was reading last night why dogs always push up against you when they jump on the bed, its bonding they say. I say its darned uncomfortable. Its like being hemmed in, two either side and one over my legs....tis quite amusing at times.

    I had my latest pup trained to use his crate at nights - this lasted about a month :rolleyes:, still its my fault for not pursuing the matter.

    Amusing is not a word I would choose to describe it lol.

    But yes it's my own fault too, if I'd spent the time to train them properly then it wouldn't be like this today.

    I know, the only rules I have set is that if they are on the bed when I enter the room, they are to jump off - which they all do now. And secondly, once I am in bed they get `invited`on, as opposed to just jumping on when they feel like it.

    Actually they must have saved me pounds in heating costs over winter, the heat they produce would run a small town in the lakes.
