Did you know....?

"That the best ear plug can only eliminate 33 decibels of noise and that the average snore is between 60 and 90 decibels, so while earplugs may seem like a good solution, you still have a lot of decibels left over."**

"...that you can hear through your jawbone. So even if you've got your earplugs in and they're great, your jawbone can pick up noise vibrations. There's no way of stopping the snoring if it wants to get in."**

BTW, a "large orchestra" emits sound at 98 decibels. Busy street traffic only rates 70db.

Somebody kill me now....

And that is why I spend many nights in the spare room.

We must be living in the same universe - ear plugs and swift back kicks in the night....
