    Hmm... Interesting stuff. I never thought about that before.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Since some people define hobbies as something you enjoy and never have time for, I'd have to say sleeping is my hobby.

    But overall, I'm pro-sleep.

    I wonder if anyone else experiences this when they drem.

    Just an example: A dream starts off, and one of the charachters is say, my father in law. Over the course of the dream, my father in laws 'physical' appearance in the dream is replaced with faces like Tommy Lee Jones or Harrison Ford, my brother, my dad, you name it, it doesn't fall into any one category, though, male charachters stay male, female stay female... I have also had dreams that shift 'time' for instance, It may start out as something in an '1800's' setting, and either end in the 3000's or perhaps my mind will just pop something in for convienience.

    The other night I was having a twisted little dream that a werewolf type monster (that was always a werewolf, so it wasn't a lycantrhope) lived under a bridge near a house I was living in in the 1800's. This creature got homicidaly angry when it heard loud noises, so, aka the village, loud sounds around the house were as bad as the 'red' in the movie. One night something broke or something and the creature came into the house looking to kill someone, and there I am on the landing of a stair case in a wheelchair (curiously I was not wheel chair bound throughout the rest of the movie, and amazingly, I was able to wheel myself up and down stairs (there is one for dream logic) anyhow, because I new it didn't like loud sounds and of course, this unfolded in typical hollywood fashion where the creature allows me the time I need to make good my plan and escape (Lol) I open up my bag of ruffles potatoe chips and dump them on the landing, I scurry up the stairs and the creature follows, but stops of course to cover it's ears and howl when it starts stepping on potatoe chips. (Is ruffles beaming 'it's so crunchy' advertisements into my dreams? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] of course, dad, as tommy lee jones comes out and blows the sucker away with a MIB cricket and the dream moves on into more freaky reality...

    I should also point out that I typically am up for 24 hours, sleeping for 18 to 24 because of my work schedule, maybe my mind is punishing me for my schedule.

    Sleep is a waste of time. If only they could figure out how to make us like plants then we would not have to sleep. Everyone would also be outside a lot more so there would be no more "fat Americans"

    actually sleep isn't a waste of time. Sleep is when you grow the most, your immune system gets stronger, you go over things so you learn. that's why you do better at things after you've had a good night's sleep... like when I was taking drivers ed. The first day I did horrible but then I slept and did WAAY better... your brain goes over the things you did that day and reinforces the pathways of the memories so you remember things better and do them better too.

    Well I would tell about my typical dreams but I do nto think anyone would enjoy them. Unless you like Arnold + Cps + random people who are always in the dreams + ideal friend + ideal wife person + Buffy the Vampire Slayer + Anne Rice books + nature + weird themes. I will not continue

    They did a study and found out that the longer someone goes without sleep, the more toxins build up in the body, and after a while, you will inevitably die, since those toxins are somehow only eradicated during sleep. Your immune system will also decline with extended sleep deprivation, since most things done that have anything to do with the immune system are done during sleep.

    Nobody really knows what causes dreams, but they think it's just your mind's thoughts during sleep, but I doubt that, because I dream about stuff that my conscious mind isn't even capable of sometimes. Like once, I had a dream where I was in some kind of store with high shelves, and high up on one shelf was a painting of a herd of horses, and this painting looked exactly like a picture I had looked at that very day, maybe 10 hours before I went to sleep. Down to every detail, it was that picture. As with anybody else, my conscious mind does not have the capacity to remember a picture down to every exact detail, right in my head, but it happened in that dream, leading me to believe that the human mind is much more detailed, accurate and sharp during sleep than it could ever be consciously.

    Most of my dreams are about something definite, but are really random and weird and don't make sense in some areas. Last night I remember dreaming that we were moving. Why, I don't know. But I remember putting the stuff in the minivan, and I remember my CPs. I actually had to put the greenhouse in the car (I have no idea how I managed that), and then I remember bringing the fluorescent tank out, but instead of how it really is (gravel in the bottom for better water retention and all the plants in trays), the plants were not in trays and there was no gravel and there was several inches of distilled water in the bottom. Then, later in the dream, I remember looking around the empty house, and it was dark, and the wicker/glass table in the dining room was still there for some reason, and I dreaded leaving. Then I woke up and realized it was a dream.

    Later, after I went back to sleep, I remember going horseback riding. It was a trail ride at the ranch, with the ranch owner, Shirley, and my grandmother (...O_O...). I remember, towards the end, we were in a wooded area, and I thought Shirley had gotten way ahead of us, and my grandmother told me to go ahead in the direction Shirley went and that she would catch up, so I went ahead at a lope (the gait in between a trot and a gallop, referred to as a "canter" in English riding), ducking lots of banana spiders in the trees (which really does happen alot). I remember ALMOST waking up at one moment, but I was still in the dream, and I remember somebody saying "One of the biggest human fears is that there are spiders in your hair." Then I went deeper into sleep and remember coming out of the woods and turning around and looking, and I saw Shirley coming out behind me, about 30 yards back. I told her I thought she got ahead of us, so I sped up. I don't remember anything after that, but later in the dream, I remember Shirley again, saying something to someone (maybe my grandparents) about me being an unusually good rider, and then I remember being in the car, driving somewhere, and we stopped at a small, old-fashioned store or something, and suddenly I was riding a horse instead of in the car, and I stopped at a hitching rail and got off. I remember walking through this place.. I was wearing my Western boots, that's all I remember.
