According to numerous sources on the internet, you cannot snore and dream at the same time.

Source 1

  1. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming. This fact is repeated all over the Internet, but I’m a bit suspicious whether it’s really true as I haven’t found any scientific evidence to support it.

Source 2 (which is more credible).

Source 3 (Yahoo Answers).

A quick google search yields pages of sites that claim that this is a "fact". Could this possibly be true from a physiological/psychological perspective, and is the claim backed up by any scientific evidence whatsoever?
