    I got accused of having my bass too loud when playing CS:S by housemates.

    I knew it wasn't me!

    yeah me and my boyfriend both sat bolt upright in bed because it was shaking that badly! We looked outside and no one else was up... so we thought we might have ghosts.

    Turned out to be good ol' reliable science though!!

    Heheh.
