The bread always falls jam side down.
So, last night I was filling my water tank. Picked it up to transfer it to the machine -- slipped right out of my hand and landed on the carpeted floor. Naturally, it landed upside down. I had a few choice words for it.

Hasn't happened to me "yet", but I have tried to put the water chamber in backwards. Oh-jeez

Have you ever noticed that when given a task that has a 50-50 chance of getting correct the first time, that your wrong 80% of the time.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

RE: The bread always falls jam side down.
I have not done any of those yet but I have filled the tank and set it down by the sink. When I went to bed, I masked up and turned the VPAP on. Luckily, I got to thinking about it and thought that maybe I should check. Voila, no water tank.

My other trick is to forget to refill the water tank and since I use most of a tank full of water every night, that means that I run out of water in the middle of the night. Holy cactus mouth, batman!

I have some other really neat tricks that I have stumbled onto that are designed to interfere with my therapy.

Happy PAPing

I've done that one once.

RE: The bread always falls jam side down.
Title reminds me of the old Buttered cat paradox....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buttered_cat_paradox

The buttered cat paradox is a common joke based on the tongue-in-cheek combination of two adages:
Cats always land on their feet.
Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.

هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه
Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه هههههه

RE: The bread always falls jam side down.
Resmed tank upside down? At least, by the time you picked up, it still had some water inside. If it was a DreamStation tank, it would empty itself before even hitting the ground - they are fully open on top! Well, that's the downside of it's upside. The upside is that an empty tank would land much softer when landing upside down...

Everything I post on this board is nothing more than an opinion expressed by an apneak. Normally, it's based on facts and experience but sometimes, I may get things wrong or not have all the facts.
I reserve the right to change my mind. Why? Because tomorrow I may know better.

Do share with us your really neat tricks - as sometimes I enjoy knowing that I am not the only one who does silly things where my cpap machine is concerned.

RE: The bread always falls jam side down.
On the plus side, if you pull the thing off the nightstand at night while rolling over, chances are it will leak AWAY from the machine. Ask me how I know that!!?
