    Dreaming is one of the strangest things... When you dream do you know you are dreaming? And what are the craziest dreams you've had?

    Most of the time I know that I am dreaming. I usually look at a clock in my dream and it just goes crazy... In my dreams I pretty much do whatever I want lol

    I can do this occasionally, I suppose around 10-20% of the time. I can be good fun especially when there is danger, or something you normally wouldn't do. I quite often remember thinking "it's ok, it's just a dream" and going for it.

    I had a dream that I was sent back to the 7th grade with my fifth grade teacher, and in my current mind. Anyway, a bathroom was in the class, and there was this bar that I did two muscle ups on the way. Teacher saw it, said nothing, and then kicked me out because she found a bodybuilding magazine in my backpack with a penis joke in it. She yelled at me for supposedly never paying attention in class, because I used to read my own books (undergraduate and graduate level books) that I brought to class. Apparently, I studied what I wanted and worked out whenever I wanted. Very good moral.

    Strange recent dreams I can remember:

    1. I walk into a room, there is a chair and a table, upon wich is a glass and a bottle of red wine. I sit down at the table and drink the wine. The end.

    2. It's my birthday and I am in a hotel ballroom with a bunch of people, some of whom I know. It's about 5pm in the afternoon and I realise I'm disappointed, because the venue is crap and there are loads of people there I don't know. There are two comedians compering the event and eventually I have to call them off the stage and ask them to leave as they are not funny at all. They get angry but leave nonetheless.

    Then I am called backstage when I'm told the Billy Elliot is going to be the main attraction, and in front of me is a 5 year old boy. I'm stood there thinking "that's not Billy Elliot, but we'll see what happens anyway". I go out to the front, take my seat and the curtain goes back and there is a big cardboard box. Out jumps the boy, shouying "ta-daaah! No, I got it wrong I need to start again" at which point he gets back in the box and the curtains draw, then they go back again and he jumps out of the box again. He gets it wrong again (I don't know what the right way is). This happens about three times, I then get bored and leave my own party alone to try and find fun elsewhere.

    3. I am out with a bunch of friends. One is a notorious ladies man in real life but in the dream he feels that he needs to dress up in a baby bear costume to make him more appealing to women. So he's in the costime, and running on all fours with some women, hiding behind his paws and being all cute and stuff. Then I look at him again and he appears to be this size of a small dog (in real life he's 6ft). I remember marvelling about how small he looked in the costume, and how this ploy actually worked as the girls thought he was lovely. That's all.

    OK. Analyse me, you bunch of amateur psychologists.

    I am a terrible sleeper and my dreams are usually quite disturbing. The latest that I can remember is of a crime - I have dreamt it twice but the people in the dream were different each time and the story varied a little.

    Basically, in the fifties a teenage girl was murdered by two teen boys. She was sent to the basement of her farmhouse which was filled with water causing her to drown. Her body is still in the basement somewhere although the water is now gone.

    How she was sent to the basement and why was different each time but in the first dream, I am at a party full of teens - it is decades after the fact but the kids are all the same age. In the second dream it is present day and the murderers are now old. In both dreams I am desperately trying to solve the crime before time runs out. I feel an urgent need to provide answers to the girl's mother. In neither dream did I enter the basement or find the body.

    The dreams are about two weeks apart (the last one about five nights ago). Both times I have woken up terrified. The dreams were in colour and I had an awareness that I was dreaming. In the second dream I remember trying to steer back to the first story but incidents kept happening that caused the scenario to change. The basement was only a large space with a dirt floor and the house is now vacant in both. I am actually a little scared that I will dream it again (I do have a history of repeating dreams).

    I dreamt that Djokovic, Nadal and Murray are throwing tons of pudding at Roger.

    Djokovic and Nadal were the initiators, Murray just followed.






    Murray to win a slam?...

    Dreams are simply your brain's attempt to make sense of random bursts in your visual cortex. Images you've seen throughout the day are usually flashed in your brain while you sleep.

    My dreams almost never make sense, I'm usually aware of this, so I take the time to enjoy the moment of this weird world my mind has crafted, thats why I always remember my dreams.

    I had some great ones when i was on medication. There was flying elephants that were different colors and weird things talking to me. Medications own for dreams.

    For normal ones it normally is what i am watching before i fall asleep. like the other night i was watching the military channel late at night and my dream was that i was a drill instructor.

    I had this weird dream. I was being chased by a giant crab.
    This huge like 50 foot crab. He was chasing me down a beach and he was doing that crab run where he was like... and snapping at me with his little snappers. And he was all night long... he was trucking. He was doing like 100 miles an hour. You know like when you're bring chased by a killer or a beast? In the dream they can run as fast as they want but you can't. The crab is like eh... and his eyes were up here and there and lighting was shooting out of its eyes and he was wearing little loafers or something. And I woke up for like a second and they I went right back into the
    dream. I fell back into the into the dream and the crab was like waiting for me. He was like ugh.... And I was like Not again! All night long.

    I occasionally know I am dreaming, usually the dream dissolves immediately then.

    My dreams are better than my dull non-existent real life ! Fantastic landscapes usually, no gravity often ... laws of physics are different ...

    I did the weirdest think acouple years ago. I was having one of those reoccurring dreams. I hate this particular dream, I knew it was a dream and I was like, "Ok, wake up, this dream is old" and I did. It was crazy. Then I went back to sleep and had a different dream.

    Bahahahahahahaha. I think everyone has a dream like this with a different pursuer. And your legs get tired REALLY fast.


    BTW anyone had a dream where you cant talk? Wonder what issues that brings to light.

    CC, Mav's 'peed' referrence (although funny) wasn't exactly what I was referring to with respect to a 'not-dry' dream. Further, I'm ashamed to admit that it wasn't an extremely long time ago either...."ah!, to be livin' large...even when unconscious!" (haha)

    on-topic:
    a common one: falling....falling...falling and then waking up just before [size=+1]-splat!-[/size] hitting the ground.

    or (a teenager one): having a sweet dream about a girl you normally didn't really give a 2nd thought about in real life....and waking up from that dream with a mad "crush" on her.

    Alot of my dreams dont make much sense.

    I was saving a bank robbery once and the dudes shot me in the street. Then it was like a movie where the camera panned out and I saw my dead body laying in the street with blodd gushing everywhere.

    Another where I was getting friendly ;) with very attractive gargoyle.

    I also never like the show friends much, pheobe especially really got on my nerves. Then I had a dream where I was getting friendly ;) with pheebs and started likeing the show for some reason.

    I dont get it.

    i dreamt that i walked into this bank. I walked up to the lady and i pointed a gun to her head. She gave me hundreds of thousands of pounds and then i jet out.

    Armed forces are right on my tail (im running with the cash on my back) and i trip over a curb and get arrested.

    i can never get over the curb and i always fall down.

    That means that deep down you see yourself as a failure and you are unable to finish the job :) My dream is much the same way except Im actually being valiant in trying to stop the perps. But Alas I fail and get killed.

    At least you dont die though, dieing is never fun. Alot of times when I die in my dreams I wake up suddenly and it takes me a few minutes to realize where Im at.


    Theres a video of a dog dreaming on youtube. this dog is running on his side like hes in the Kentucky Derby then he somehow gets upright and propells himself directly into the wall. Its funny and sad at the same time, but mostly its funny.

    I can do that... I usually know I am dreaming, and I can control every thing so I usually don't want to wake up. But I can make myself wake up or I can just change the dream
