Why Do We Toss And Turn When We Sleep ?
« on: 30/07/2015 12:32:24 »
Dearest Bods Of extraordinary instructional joyness,

As a sheepy I of course.......ahh....well.. actually I know very liitle about the act of sleeping as a chronic insomniac I have spent my whole life figuring out how to do it !!

See Nathaniel Herald Stoke-on Trent the 3rd here:

Nathaniel sleeping and trying to catch flies at the same time just a few hours ago.

He's a peaceful chap, a happy chap, enjoying a snooze and resting away like a delinquent haddock on meths.

Nathaniel , although sound asleep moves quite a bit while enjoying his slumber ..

why's that then ? Why Do We Toss And Turn When We Sleep ?  Is Nate experiencing a mild case of consciousness while he moves to another position ?  I mean why bother moving at all ?..he's asleep innit ?

whajafink ?

If ewe help me to know then i will know it too making me as klevur as ewe !

hugs and shmishes

mwah mwah !!


As a tired old sheep
Ewe'd think I could sleep

We all bear responsibility for the actions of our governments.

Given the number of innocent lives (foreign and domestic) extinguished by our governments for the phony whores of "justice" and "security", the wonder is that any of us can sleep at all.
