Eureka!

I seem to have most of my eureka moments when in the bath...
Sometimes new ideas or plans come to me or a resolution to an issue hits me. Occasionally I am just relaxed enough that my mind is empty - some may say there's no difference Cheesy - but maybe that's why new thoughts and ideas come to me.
So, where do you have your eureka moments?

Re: Eureka!

I tend to problem solve in my sleep.
I had a pc that my son locked me out of. I was also locked out of the bios. My firms I.T. department tried to get me in and couldn't, but I woke up at three in the morning shouting "I know what to do", much to my wife's annoyance.

Moons ago while on holiday i had a dream about the lottery and saw all six numbers very clearly and even remembered them when i woke up! Got home and the cabbie that picked us up at the airport told us that we'd had a local winner  Shocked
I've always wondered what his winning numbers were for that week..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
