I actually have dreams where I'm speaking German and French with people all the time. I wake up with vocabulary I never knew I had, but if I don't write it down right away, it's gone. Must be stuff my subconscious ate and I never really could use in conversation.

I agree that Freud was a bit ... strange

Quite often, I have dreams that involve falling from high-ish places and somehow surviving with no injuries... The wierd part is that I feel the dream, as if I were riding a roller coaster. I hate that falling feeling in real life, but in dreams, it's really fun! The wierdest thing, though, was falling down some big staircase at Sea World, or falling down an outdoor escalator at a Pokemon hotel run by Misty's sisters, then landing in a pile of leaves and flying/riding home on a flying black jaguar (the cat, not the car).

Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

The only Japanese-related dream I've ever had involved just the word オレンジ.

Very Japanese. ;)

Not to go all political or anything, but this won't happen. If China did bomb us, we would bomb them right back and there won't be any one left to take us as slaves. Don't think the leaders of China aren't well aware of this.

The one certainty with the US, is we will use nuclear weapons on any nation that threatens to annex state territory.

But this isn't going to happen. We are geographically isolated enough from any threatening nations that they cannot win a land war. Perhaps more importantly, China isn't interested in conquering the US any more than the US is interested in conquering China. China does want to re-integrate all the rogue nations that used to be Chinese territory but are no longer.

China has always been a mostly satiated nation. They don't go conquer so much as they get conquered and absorb the conquerers and fight amoungst themselves.

Are you sure it's French or German?? I thought people could only have dreams like that that they are speaking in other languages they know. I've had a dream that I've been to Japan, but it could've been somewhere else because I don't know all of the right sentence format, kanji, and vocabulary. I'm just assuming it's Japan unless my dream has somebody read or say something that it's a certain country.

I don't like wars. Especially about learning more about WWI in class now... It's scaring me. O_o. Yeah, I should stop being scared...
But, I never really think about things like this, but I've learned more. Anyways, I wouldn't blame President Bush for the fighting. If somebody attacks your country, you just can't sit on your sweet ass and let them ride over you.

Anyways, this is SO WEIRD!! A few times I'm really half awake and litterally half asleep. So, when I'm in that position my feet are usually a little bit off of my bed (I sleep with my legs off of the bed, so it may seem like more to you all. lol) and I'm like... LITTERALLY FALLING! I get freaked out and I jump up and I'm like,"Wtf? My bed." Afterwards I'd like feel to make sure I'm on my bed still.
It's cool and freaky. :D B) :o

I don't think It meant anything, and I know it's not going to happen. I think it was just my subconcious brain's bad interpretation of my world history class and a wwII documentary.

I don't want any political debate (and I certainly don't care much about US party politics), but I'd just like to say that I don't remember Iraq making any attack on the USA. I may have missed something though, so please correct me if I am wrong.

Well, I don't want to spend this whole topic on political stuff, but we went over there with the idea to capture Osama Bin Laden. Well, with that being a very hard target, always protected and hidden in mountains he know like the back of his hand, we haven't accomplished that. Since we were already over there, we needed to see something accomplished, so we take Saddam Hussein out of power... something is now accomplished, except that we also have to replace him with a working government (that can we will have to protect for a while, keeping about 3000 people or so still stations over there, probably the active duty troops). Now we just have to see the thing through and set up the second democracy in the region besides Israel. If we pulled out as it is, some Islamic sect would take control, and it cycles again.

I also have a weird state where I am half dreaming, and I'll fall or even barely hit something and I twitch and wake up. I also gone to school with my pants off in a dream, and in it, I tell myself I will remember the next day. I usually end up forgetting my shirt. :(

The reason that the US forces haven't been able to capture Osama Bin Laden in Iraqi is for the very simple reason that he is in Afghanistan or in Pakistan near the Afghanistan border.

There is no evidence that Osama Bin Laden has ever even been to Iraqi.

I had a dream where some one told me to help a grandmother in a wheelchair. While I was pushing her to whatever room, she started whispering something so I leaned my ear in to hear what she was saying. And then she ate me

.....care to guess where that comes from?

China won't be bombing the U.S. anytime soon. It's like the mob; they don't murder someone who owes them a large amount of moolah--they either torture them a bit or kill someone close to them. By that reasoning China may end up breaking one of America's kneecaps, or possibly murdering Canada.

I don't know what is more disturbing, your dream or the fact that you don't know who Freud is.


I would say that there are many young people that don't know who freud is. there might even be some older people that don't know who he is. His works aren't that important that going your whole life without knowing anything of him wouldn't make you a better person. I mean, the pygmies don't know him and they manage.
