    I have a bad snoring problem... I'm affraid, especially in the crucible that i'm going to get my ass kicked when everyone is exhausted and need their sleep.

    Also, should I tell someone? I don't want to drive my roommate insane with it.

    You won't be the only one. Trust me, if they are exhausted, they won't even hear you.

    i got in a fight about once a week about my snoring. honestly, how the fuck do you expect someone to STOP snoring?

    weird thing is i never snore if I'm in my own bed but once i sleep somewhere i'm not used to I sound like a fucking chainsaw :rofl:

    lol

    People get fucking scared and wake me up, they think i'm choking and i'll stop breathing. They think i'm like suffocating on my own vomit or something

    you can after the people in charge leave. no one really notices.. if you're not tired enough to be passed out by the end of the day, the people in charge aren't doing their jobs right.

    The only thing that will get in the way of sleep in boot is one of your instructors.

    Yeah that's probably a little more serious than just snoring. Ever heard of 'Sleep Apnea'?

    my fireteam partner in basic was a 260 lb man, I woke up freezing one night in the field and in the first few seconds of confusion after waking up, I mistook his snoring for a machinegun and started yelling stand to :rofl:

    Basic is one thing, but in schools after basic where you are in a bay-type sleeping arrangement, you can bet your lard-encrusted throat that guys are going to be pissed as fuck if you keep them up all night snoring.

    The smart NCOICs ask right up front who that loud sawbuzzers are, and put them all in the same corner. :mamoru:

    We had a guy from New Mexico that couldn't handle the change in pollen count when he went to WLC in Nebraska. He coughed all fucking night long, and instead of blowing his fucking nose he'd just snort that snot back up in to his overwhelmed sinuses.

    I still remember his name: "Fucking Attencio" :madfawk:

    I'm sure if you got someone to send them to you nobody would care, as long as you had them off by the time the lights came on.

    oh I'm not really concerned; I had my tonsils out when I was like 6. It was more of a hypothetical question...
