How do you like to sleep?




My wife loves having the TV on as a night light. It was bearable in days of 20" bedroom TVs....but having a 50" TV on feels like a searchlight in my face! So now I wear a soft sleep mask. I got used to it.


I do miss sleeping in pitch black with some classical music or my Sounds of Nature CDs on low.



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Pitch black with podcasts on.

I won't put a TV in the bedroom. That's not what that room is for.

Never been a TV-in-the-bedroom type of person, but I understand many people need the distraction to sleep. Room should be dark to sleep unless I'm just super wiped out.

Starlight, moonlight, the howls of coyotes and the hooting of owls.

bedrooms are for sleep and another thing, not for watching TV
(I believe ztirffritz said that, but I could be wrong)

Pitch black, fan on. No other way.

I would love to sleep in total darkness but my husband likes his clock and we have nightlights in the hall. I have masks but I tend to rip them off. Ah well — things we do for love.

On my back, and occasionally on my side.

If that were true I would have been dead a long time ago, Though it would be nice to have a timer built into the fan to shut off after 8 hours. That would be a better wakeup than an alarm beep.

Fans ... can’t do that either. Even the quietest ceiling fan on low makes a sound. A SOUND.

Right side, then left side. Any variation and I won't sleep.

I prefer a dark room, and quiet. But can sleep usually no matter the conditions. Learned to do that first year in college, had a roommate who was from NYC and this school was out in the country. He couldn't sleep without a radio or some other sound source on at low volume and a small light on.

I will sometimes fall asleep better on the couch or recliner with the TV on.

On a reasonably new TV, you can turn the backlight down and the brightness to really low, then turn up the contrast. It also tends to reduce the energy usage. I have several user modes/profiles, one is set up to fall asleep to.

Total darkness with fan like white noise and - once all the inveigling fails - a pillow between the knees

Dark, a 20min podcast to doze off to.

If it's hot, I have a fan on a smart switch, and timer in the app.

The fan has five speeds, but two are Rig for Quiet and Rig for Ultra Quiet (aka Run Silent).

Turbo is lash yourself to a mast, and it's a little noisy.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I have the tv on for 15 min. I lie there and listen for 10 min and then turn to my left side and I'm out in a minute. Once in a blue moon it doesn't turn off. Last night I woke up at 3am and it was on. I went to the can then turned it off and was out in minute. My wife sleeps through the tv since she goes to bed earlier and likes me in the room in the late evening while I'm watching tv.

Pitch black with ambient music playing in the background.

Pitch black (blackout curtains), but with alarm clocks' glow. Also, the door is open and we can see a little bit of a glow from the nightlight in the kitchen. If we didn't keep the door open, the cats would pound on the door all night. Ceiling fan on, except in winter. I wear earplugs, but can still hear stuff like wife snoring, and distant train horns.

We have a TV in the room, but it's only to watch news in the morning as we're getting ready for work. No way either of us would sleep if it was on.

As dark as I can get it, by myself, on a memory foam mattress and power foundation, steeply inclined, legs slightly raised, helps my back pain a lot in the mornings. It was hard to get used to sleeping on my beck after sleeping on my side for about 55 years.

I wanted to check "pitch black" but chose "night light" due to all the gadget's lights in the room. A printer here, a power strip there, Tiny lights, like stars in the dark.
