    Like when you ZZZz, you suddenly have the feeling that you are falling down..... or like dropping from a great height and then you wake up........


    Hhhmmmmmmm

    one possible explanation can be just coins hitting the floor, it sounds differently downstairs because the sound is transmitted differently.

    Hey, i get that sometimes too. i wonder why.. Men's inate fear of falling perhaps?

    I've got what seems to be like sudden electric shocks that wakes me up too. Usually happens only when i'm almost asleep.

    I leave in the top most floor leh. And occasionally i heard marbles or like someone drangging a heavy object on top. It usually happens if i stay up late. Wonder who is upstairs???

    look at it this way,

    if you're staying at the top most floor and you hear sound coming from the roof... I guess it is ok, since it is coming from "up there"

    BUT

    say you're staying on the ground floor and you hear scratching sounds coming from the floor.... now I think you should get worried.....

    Kamwai stop scaring us! haha. but think nothing to worry bout one lah. Mean physics experts, sound travels much faster when passing through concrete than air right?

    Last time this neighbour of mine did renovation work. They stay like 10 floors down but think because sound travels so much better in denser medium (concrete), whenever they do drilling or stuff, it always seems like the sound directly come from the family above!

    Yeah lor, so in a HDB flat, imagine how many families are there man. Just one of them move the furniture... and the whole block will hear it! At least that's what I like to think lah...

    Hi,

    Actually hor, it's none other than a high tech kid up there playing back a WAV file of marbles dropping. It sounds so real because he is playing back the WAV file through the Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum, and the Creative Inspire 5700 5.1 Digital speakers, and has been enhanced by the use of EAX technologies.

    Regards

    OIE Blue strike... sleep properly lah~ This is due to poor sleeping posture... I use this technique to prevent myself from sleeping too long.... HAHAHA....

    When you sleep... make sure your legs are straight... not bent like doing sit up like that... when you fall asleep, your muscle relax and your legs topple, causing your body to turn, your inner ear sense the sudden movement and the brain thinks you are falling... Sleep so that you do not "topple" and you won't have these problems...

    Marble dropping ah... could it be due to expansion and contration of the building? This one is a wild guess... Cos can always here the buckling sound of my fridge at night which is due to expension and contraction...

    Default creepy explanation??

    i hear those noises u guys mentioned once a while, in my living room even the flat we lived in before shifting here.

    my sis told me it's the spirits, just reminding us that they are there since there is no other explanation why kids are playing marbles that late or furniture dragging across the room.

    after hearing that, my ears are always on the alert mode even though i'm not too bothered abt it anymore....
