I saw two pieces of roadkill on my way to Bath yesterday so it must be creeping around here as wellmangaman74 said:Death has been round our way again. Found 3 dead frogs this morning - 2 in the back garden, 1 in the front (I assume they were dead - they were all lying on their backs montionless).

That is not how signals work. You need a concave surface to make the signal focus to a point.Stuart-says-yes said:Firstly the tin foil sheet is basic physics.
The tin foil is comparable to a satellite, the both have the same function, they reflect radio waves to a focused point.
By putting a sheet of tin foil on the wall in the opposite side of the router, variable to where you are, the less of the waves will pass through that end of the house, as there being refracted by the sheet, like a beam of sunlight hitting a mirror.
Refraction is an undesired optical phenomenon in usual mirrors. The analogy you're drawing predominantly involves reflection.Stuart-says-yes said:By putting a sheet of tin foil on the wall in the opposite side of the router, variable to where you are, the less of the waves will pass through that end of the house, as there being refracted by the sheet, like a beam of sunlight hitting a mirror.

Great weekend, booked a certain test this morning. Now just sat in work listening to radio 1.
was up till half 2... why's it that when your trying to sleep in the same bed as your gf over the weekend and she's taking all the covers and apparently laughing at you because you've been talking and laughing in your sleep... then when your back in your own bed on your own.... why's it so bloody hard to sleep? :S
Godot said:lol It just suggests the above really. Arousal of the mind doesn't have to be from any particular stimulus - gaming may have helped to relax you which'd explain your being able to sleep fine afterwards. It could just be something you're anxious over - that's the worst one for losing sleep. I play games n **** till late - but due to having tinnitus I have to listen to a rain loop when I go to sleep (for the time being) and as such, it probably relaxes me, so I get fairly good sleep. Basically avoid alcahol/caffeine for as long as possible before sleeping, and before going to sleep just try doing some really calming things. Put your phone away so no one can contact you, and think of relaxing things - if that's too hard then go and listen to relaxing stuff, like a rain loop.
I wouldn't suggest sleeping tablets - your quality of sleep matters far more than the length of sleep in terms of next day tiredness (Though, people who sleep less than 6.5 hours, or more than 8.5 hours may be more likely to die...). Sleeping tablets have shown to reduce time spent in REM sleep, which means you will probably still not be 100% the next day - best bet for you is just to try the above and relax.
