ok, i was wondering how you sleep... arms up above your head or down at your side? reason i ask, is because ive heard that sleeping with your arms above your head is bad for your shoulders / rotator cuffs.

I am a flounder in bed. The sheets are wound up like a mummy when I get up in the AM.

Same here, but my arms usually end up at my sides or folded so my hands are next to or under my head.

On my back, both hands on my chest, one clutching the TV remote. I wake up in the exact same position I go to sleep in, never move at all.

one hand on AR, one hand holding tinfoil hat on


I will admit though, that sometimes it is an AK depending on which VC unit I am expecting that night.

I'm a flopper. Usually wake up at 100AM till 200AM thinking of guns stuff, reloads, next buy, etc...

Like the dead.

Asleep in 2 minutes, wake-up in the same position I fell asleep in, which is usually on my back with one arm around the female companion. If said female companion can't lie still, then I usually end up on my side, teetering on the edge of the bed.

Exactly.

I had someone ask me that when I was buying a new bed. I was wondering how in the hell should I know?

I know the positions I usually fall asleep in, but I have no idea what position(s) I occupy during the night.

Sleep? I'll sleep when I'm dead.

Jeez, guys.

It was from "The Critic".

Critic: So you were paid $90 million to star in a movie that is just you standing in front of a brick wall for two hours? How do you sleep at night?

Wolfcastle: On a large pile of money surrounded by many beautiful women.

Critic: Well...that's one way.

All you do is post here all over the place, so of course you can't sleep........Turn off the computer or extreme long term mental damage will occur.

i like to put my hand under my pillow, but that puts pressure on my hand and i often wake up with a sore wrist. i should make an effort to keep them at my side or on top of my stomach/chest.

Sleep??? WTF is that??? It's almost 2a.m. right now and I'm up for the duration....

+1

I typically sleep with one arm at my side, and one underneath my pillow/head. I will wake up about once every two nights or so with an arm that is COMPLETELY dead due to the weight of my head cutting off circulation. I literally have to pick it up with my other hand and move it manually, the dead arm is totally devoid of animation. It's really kinda fun, actually.

On the clock.

I sleep in a more or less horizontal position.

Most of the time......
