Lionlike snorer sues wall-banger

Classic headline and story from The New York Times - Jan 21, 1964.

My favorite line: "Mr. Scheir's snores of gigantic proportions are an animalistic roar, lionlike, that vibrate the rooms. The very anticipation of their beginning at about 2:30 A.M. every day has shaken my client and his wife, deprived them of sleep, injured their health, and, in fact, constitute an assault upon their persons."

The case was subsequently resolved by the construction of a soundproof wall.

So, where's the Feb 13th or 14th's edition??? How does the story end..... Will Scheir's Somnolent Serenade win out over Mandell's Manic Malleations or will the aforementioned 'Inc.' have to see to a better home?

Tune in again tomorrow, boys & girls.

One of the few good things about having kids is them confirming women do snore at times like my wife and Patty !

Was all that banging against the wall made with the headboard of the bed? It seems that loud snoring made by the neighbor was a defensive move.

During the Great Yellowstone fires I arrived and was assigned a section of floor in a two bedroom house with no furniture to sleep on. There were 10 other people in the house, clustered in the far end bedrooms, but I was the only one in the living room on a carpet. About 1am I found out why as the whole house began to rumble. A guy was sleeping in the garage on the only bed and snoring to wake the dead. I moved outside the next night to the lawn.

My wife snores too. My sympathies to anyone who has to put up with this. Of course, being able to hear a neighbor snore through a wall indicates a very shoddy building.

Always been a world class snorer, even after septoplasty surgery and removal of some turbinates. Worst experience was camping, 50 yards from everyone else. Woke up with 10 people shining their flashlights into the tent looking to see what animal was caught in the tent.
