    I am the king of weird dreams. I could probably write an epic book which would make people think that I'm constantly on LSD.. Seriously, one time I had a dream that monster came out with a new energy drink that's flavor was fresh linen. One of my friends bought it and then become amazing card tricks after drinking it....WTF?

    Oh strange dreams, the stories I can tell when you fill my slumbering head with that bizarre imagery.

    I've been keeping a log of my dreams since some time in 2004. I don't always write them down, some times you forget within minutes of waking up. But the most vibrant dreams get written down.

    An interesting fact - my dreams almost ALWAYS involve events that really happened at approximately one week to the day prior to having the dream. That finding has been very consistent.

    I've got quite the impressive lineup of strange dreams, let me tell you.

    and yes, ICHQ has been in a few...

    here's a good dream, I wrote this to read exactly as I dreamed it - jumping from place to place:

    We're on a space shuttle just before it's liftoff time. We had to round up all of the sheep into the ship before we could take off. It wasn't easy, those stupid things don't stand still. We were worried about the liftoff - more like the potential explosion. We would be carrying nukes. Norm (UPS Yuri) and I jumped on tricycles and rode them at max speed to catch the sheep. We were cruising so fast through the house, but too fast. We kept wiping out in the corners and into walls.

    ...wut?

    ahh weird dreams.

    I just had one the other day. The dream itself wasn't that weird, but how i felt during the whole dream was what make me kind of scared. I'm not gonna say anything about the dream itself, cause i don't remember much at all, and from what i can remember, it wasn't interesting. The whole time i was dreaming, i felt like i was awake, but hallucinating. It felt so real, and yet so fake, i thought to myself, i had to be awake but not thinking straight. The whole time i was dreaming, i tried to get up from the dream, but i couldn't. There were some type of forces that kept sucking me back into it.

    after i woke up, i thought about it, and it was probably just sleep paralysis.

    This isn't a dream, but it definitely felt like one.

    Today on my way to class I had my ipod on shuffle through my songs list. The song Dirty Harry by the Gorillaz came on, and then like 2 seconds later someone came around the corner wearing a Gorillaz shirt. Strange coincidence, so I didn't think about it much. Then a song by 311 came on and 2 guys walked by like 3 seconds after the song came on. One wearing a 311 shirt, and the other with a 311 patch on his backpack. Ok, so 2 songs in a row, I was just kinda laughing about how weird it was. Then finally I got to the classroom and sat down. One by Metallica came on, and that very second my friend walked in wearing a Metallica shirt. It felt like a dream. Pretty strange, huh?

    I had a dream when I was younger that had me as Link (Zelda series) throwing bombs at the chocolate bar rack in a 7-11.

    Thats. It.

    I almost never remember my dreams but when I do I remember them forever it seems. the last time I had a dream was when I was pregnant. I kept dreaming that I was going to have a girl. by the time she was big enough to find out she kept hiding. finally when I was 7 months pregnant we finally found out that we were having a girl.

    This thread needs to be necro'd every once in a while.

    I had a dream the other morning that I was flying at 30,000 feet, I was sucked into a jet engine which then exploded, all of the passengers on the jet died in the crash and I somehow survived but had to spend the rest of my life in jail.

    No one was impressed that I could fly.

    Few nights ago I dreamt that my job was putting bananas back into their peels. It was miserable.

    I had a dream the other night that I was racing around my parents' bedroom in a go-kart. Before I got on the go-kart, a guy walked in the room with a bunch of cars stacked on top of each other, stacked largest to smallest as the stack went up. My father took the race car at the bottom and I took the go-kart. The bedroom was in the attic of some old house, but it was huge, at least the size of a football field.

    Last night I dreamed that I was on a cruise ship, and suddenly the ship came under attack by some creatures flying in from above. The passengers were speculating as to whether they were ringwraiths or Death Eaters. They turned out to be people who were so corrupted by evil and sadness that they drained the color out of the world around them. I ended up fighting their leader in a sword battle, and every time I hit I had to force her to have a different emotion. Each emotion caused a partial return of color. Finally, when I had her disarmed and defeated, I threw down my own weapon and made her feel the relief of my mercy, and she was truly defeated, and in full color.

    Last night I had a series of dreams, the oddest of which involved an ex-girlfriend of mine who in the dream was actually Jacy Farrow of McMurtry's The Last Picture Show. We were in this very large, old-timey building the likes of which you'd expect to see in a western, but bigger. As we were just hanging about at some convention or party that was going on, a band of highwaymen began to attack the house so we barricaded the doors. I decided to run to the mall, which was oddly enough connected to the old building at its far and remote end, to buy guns and ammunition. But by the time I got back the bandidos had overtaken the house and I found myself in a firefight, which I won, and something of a brawl with this huge guy at the end. I got battered around quite a bit, but since I fought dirty I won. Then the dream shifted to downtown Chicago, and I don't remember much after that, other than all my knife slashings and wounds from the brawl were still intact.

    GHoosdum, your dream sounds awesome.

    I've had this recurring dream for years, me sitting in my Grandfathers favorite chair, a super heavy duty wooden chair, two arm rests, fairly wide, thick, stained deep brown and sturdy as hell, the kind you just can't buy anymore. So I'm in that chair just chilling, watching some baseball on the old beat up Emerson tube TV like I used to do when I was a kid. Sitting in this chair at my Grandparents old house which had been sold years ago, then suddenly, without warning the chair will just lift off, I mean, just blow through the roof like one of the jokes in Iron Man where he is still figuring out the suit, I blow through the roof in the chair, see the sky, and thats it, I wake up.

    Been having that dream now and then for years, have absolutely no clue what it says about me??

    I posted this at another website on Sept. 19 2009:

    "Hello!

    I haven't had a vivid and graphic dream like the one this week for many years. It was so bizarre and unusual, yet so real that I had to share it the next day with somes colleagues at work.

    The only part of the dream that I see is of a very large living serpent with it's tail shoved down it's own throat. I remember feeling non-threatened because the serpent was unable to strike, and it could not back out from itself. Nonetheless, I was still on guard and cautious just in case. I also felt that I had personally conquered this creature, but didn't remember any details of it. What I found unusual was it's size being that of an anaconda or larger in girth, yet only about 6' long (about my height I suppose).

    Two days ago I received an email at work of "The R-eel Fish Story" and felt deja vu upon seeing the pic. I found the story so funny and bizarre that I posted it on my wall. The eel in that picture is the serpent that I saw in my dream that night.

    Tonight I was surfing out crystal information and I stumbled across the symbol of the Ouroboros for the first time. Until now I had no idea or just chose to remain ignorant maybe. I'm just amazed at how all of this has been manifesting ...."

    The pic I posted there was something I also probably posted in the fuinny pics thread as well. The story is still hilarious to read. If you have not read it yet please do.

    I don't know if it's the approach of Halloween, or what, but last night I had a horror movie dream.

    It began with a group of about eight of us (I'm not sure who 'us' were, aside from the fact that I was one of them and this was a first person dream). We were dropped off at an abandoned mine site in a canyon. It was very Borderlands-ish in setting.

    A group of eight people was released from an institution for the criminally insane, at about the same time. They came at us one by one, and slowly our group dwindled, but each time we had to kill the killer. I don't clearly remember the first six, but I know there was a lot of running, hiding, and fighting.

    The seventh killer was a reanimated skeleton. I remember somehow managing to dismantle the skeleton before he could do much to us, and I kept his skull, less jawbone, as a trophy of sorts. Somehow it could still talk to us, and for some reason he became friendly after we dismantled him.

    After that, we got back to the entrance of the mine, and found that in our absence it had been converted to an old west themed event venue. A wedding was going on. At this point the four of our group who had survived felt a wave of relief because we had reached civilization.

    Suddenly, out of nowhere, the eighth killer reared up behind two of our group and with one slash, cut them both in half with a chainsaw (comically, at this point they became clear to me as Fred and Daphne from Scooby Doo). Incensed at the interruption of his daughter's wedding, the father of the bride faced off against the eighth killer with a shotgun, and fired off a shot.

    The eighth killer was unfazed by the shot pellets, and he threw the running chainsaw at the father of the bride, where it embedded itself squarely in his chest, killing him instantly. The bride and groom, along with most of the wedding guests, fled.

    Then, just as I was about to do something to retaliate against the eighth and final killer and end the horror movie dream in a marginal victory, I heard babby crying over the monitor and I woke up.

    PS - I know that chainsaws don't continue to run when you let go of the handle, but in horror movie dreams chainsaws run no matter what.

    I had a dream last night about visiting @CrazyJoe

    As it turns out, in the dream Joe had moved from Florida to Alaska. We (myself, @CB, and @Zanthian were the visitors) landed in Alaska and went to dinner at Olive Garden (Never Ending Pasta Bowls) with Joe. Unfortunately he had to bring his dog to dinner. The dog was not happy unless it was in a high chair, being spoon-fed from our own plates of food.

    Afterward, we departed the restaurant to head to Joe's new place in Alaska. As it turns out, he lived on an island in the Bering Sea. Unfortunately, the helicopter he chartered could only carry Suzy and the dog, so the rest of us had to travel by boat. Since we only found out he had moved to Alaska after we departed for the trip, we were wearing shorts and flip flops, and the waves crashing over the bow and washing across the deck were really cold.

    The rest of the dream was about finding a decent pair of boots.

    Last night I had a dream that I was with @pragtastic and @annes at the Heart Attack Grill. Anne and I were eating a salad (I'm pretty sure they don't even offer them at the real restaurant) and Prag had a giant headcrab-shaped burger worth 8,000 calories. It was the size of my head and dripping with cheese and grease. After he finished it, he realized he was still hungry and became enraged. He started to climb to the ceiling of the place. I found a menu and recommended he get the quadruple bypass burger. It was listed as 24,000 calories. So he bought that and ate it, and was happy.

    As we left, we grabbed some assault rifles and entered a combat zone with a few US Army Rangers. We killed a few bad guys before we ran out of ammo, so Anne and I started throwing RPG shells at them (instead of, I dunno, firing them with a launcher). Shortly after that, Nightmare Moon descended from the sky, bathing the area in darkness. Pain. Everything was pain. As I writhed on the ground before her tyranny, Twilight Sparkle showed up to try and stop it. She was soon consumed by the darkness, and as she dissolved into nothing, I heard her cry out to open up her closet. I crawled over and opened it. A cat walked out and jumped into Nightmare Moon's arms. She went back into the sky and the darkness went away.

    Apparently, she just wanted her cat back.

    Last night I dreamed that I rescued a beautiful woman from a physically abusive relationship by flying a helicopter across town (devastated by some unknown apocalypse) to stab her husband. A scuffle ensued and I emerged victorious.

    After murdering some schmuck, I returned to my day job as a kindergarten teacher where I was then tasked with escorting a student to the bathroom. But the bathroom was not in the school--it was in the convenience store down the street. Unfortunately while taking this child to the restroom, a van full of explosives was parked beneath the school. This incited an obvious panic, causing me to lose track of the child as everyone rushed out of the school.

    The end.

    I love that it was a scuffle AFTER you stabbed the guy. Knife fights bring out the man in everyone.

    Alright here we go:

    So last night I was dreaming that I was up and about in my room just following the standard routine because for whatever reason I had nothing to do. All of a sudden I heard Rebecca Black singing Friday out on my street so naturally I poked my head out the window and yelled at her to shut up only to see her broadsided INTO A WALL by the pony-mobile (Or at least what my mind envisioned) immediately I found myself sitting in the pony-mobile and we were driving to EXPO. Upon arriving my legs turned into rocket boots and I began flying towards the moon with a one-way ticket. On the moon I found a big yellow 'banana bag' beside a sign reading 'Do you like bananas?'

    This is what happens to my mind when we have a four hour pony-stream, talk about EXPO and then 2:00am League of Legends

    Here's something I've done for a long time, I don't think it'd be considered a dream though.

    When on the computer and on various websites, I "see" myself in various places. It's like I'm standing there looking around, seeing what I'd see if I were actually in that location.

    For example, whenever I go to one website, I "see" an area at one local highway on/off ramp. Whenever I'm on another website, I always "see" a parking lot at a local library, and on a 3rd website I'm always at a spot where a local road splits into a Y. Other websites are linked to other locations, not necessarily near roads, these are just a few examples. I have no idea how I came to associate different sites with different locations, it just happens. And once it happens, that site always links to that location. There's no changing it. Anyone have any idea what I mean? I'd like to think I have some as-yet undiscovered special ability or something.

    A lot of my dreams are fairly typical, involving things like Powerball wins, not having to work anymore so I can go achieve my own goals, girls with big boobs, :D etc..... There are weird ones also, where I'll wake up and think "how the HELL did I ever get the idea to dream about that WTF is wrong with me?".

    So I watched this:


    Then I went to bed. The dream was weird.

    I was in some crazy top secret underground military facility with my brother and a few other people from Icrontic. This facility was a testing location for some sort of crazy arc railgun device, basically a very high powered beam of energy and death. This device had never been tested before, and it was a feat never previously accomplished by man. We were in unknown territory with this thing.

    The gun was located in a giant half-dome structure, with the operators up in a window. I was standing on a platform above the weapon, because apparently it just seemed like the safest place to stand. They turned it on, and a loud buzzing noise came in, followed by a loud POW as the weapon initiated sequence. Four intense red beams shot forward, and the operators started to slowly move it to line it up with some mirrors. This beat was cutting right through the side of the wall, destroying EVERYTHING. Once the hit the mirror, it went nuts, bouncing in all directions. I pretty much cut half of the wall open, and just started blasting through the facility destroying all in its path. I was suddenly overcome by a very intense wave of heat from the device, and I realized I was becoming radioactive.

    They turned the device off, and inspected the damage scientifically. Then they turned it on again and destroyed a nearby town with it.

    It was scary :(

    I had a dream last night too.... It was next years EPIC and it was at Tracey's again but you had bough the basement (only) of the show next door and we linked the two basements together. We had tons of room. The cool part was Brian and Matt had printed off wall decals of pictures from all the previous events and made the entire long wall a mural/collage... even better, some of them were gifs so the wall decals had motion! IT was so cool!
