Sorry everyone, but I haven't been able to post in a few days since I was away for the weekend. A lot of you expressed a lot of interest in lucid dreaming, so here's a good link I found: http://www.lucidity.com/LucidDreamingFAQ2.html.
Also, I thought I'd share a crazy dream I had the other night with all of you. The United States had been invaded by some odd combination of/cross between aliens and Chinese communists. They had destroyed New York City, but managed to use alien technology to transport some of its most important buildings to Chicago. This dream Chicago was probably the most magnificent city I had ever seen. One of the most prominent buildings in this skyline was an enormous tower with a 70 story mural of Mao Zedong on one of its faces. I was traveling high above the city in a helicopter with the enemy's leader. The sides of the helicopter were open and I remember being so scared that I could fall from the helicopter at any moment. Eventually the helicopter landed and I got out, and I woke up soon after that. I just remember thinking that I should've tried to assassinate the dictator when I was with him.
If anybody else has had any crazy or interesting dreams lately that they'd like to share, I'd really like to hear about them.
