As I sit here listening to my roommaate snore, I finally realized why snoring is so annoying. It's not predictable. It's the auditory equivalent of the chinese water torture. On a zeroeth order approximation it is almost rhythmic, but the interval is always just slightly different, as is the volume, pitch and duration of each snort.

I'm really not cut out to share hotel rooms. I'm considering whether a pillow held firmly to his face would stop the snoring, and I haven't even tried going to sleep yet.
