I trimmed my moustache in a way which made me look exactly like Saddam Hussein.

>Whereas the only repression in capitalist market economies, the odd third-world banana republic notwithstanding, tends to be that you are expected to get a job and pay your bills.
I think that's a bit of an unrealistically rosy view of things. Property rights are maintained by force, which used to mean things like having the freedom to choose between you and your children working twelve hours a day six days a week in the factory or the same, but in a mine.
We've managed to improve things quite a bit since then, but a lot of people in the UK still work quite hard for not very much, we justify this by telling them they should have worked harder in school and so on. Even your example could be worded as 'having the means of your survival in the hands of someone who is more interested in profit than in your well-being'. The wrong end of the global supply chain are still doing the above. Can we do better? I dunno, maybe.

I did get a girlfriend in the middle of a war against what I think were aliens later in the dream. However, I think by that point I'd stopped looking exactly like Saddam Hussein. Shout out to my imaginary gf for remaining very professional during a firefight, I think that kind of maturity was what I liked best about her.

I had a dream that I was at a birthday party with loads of people, probably a hundred, and nobody was wearing a mask, and I thought, even if I don't get sick, they're going to trace me and tell me to go into quarantine. So I told people I was going home, and if anybody asked them, I was never there.

And that's the keyword. Used to. Like I said, capitalism at its beginning in the 19th century should not serve as a blueprint for how a modern market economy should function. Capitalism as well as most countries' economic policy has evolved from that, it has largely left its scandalous days behind it, and it shows the world over that you can have capitalism and at the same time the little people can prosper. While socialists still dream of the world revolution that never happened a hundred years ago, all the while rejecting the Soviet Union as a key example of how socialism turns out in practice.
|>>|| No. 441494
You criticise socialists for not embracing the Soviet Union as a shining example of their ideology, but don't do the same for capitalists who may be reluctant to cheer for Pinochet, or Putin, or Trump.

I can only remember fragments of it. We found an old post somewhere online from Charlie Brooker saying Krautchan is better than here. This place was bought out by Indians. You could get a mint and hazelnut flavour Bounty, which came in dark green packaging.

Being driven down a rocky, bumpy path with lots of small jumps between two spatially-incompatible fields by a super cocky land rover driver, culminating in a massive jump off a dirt ramp. I was instantly teleported out of the land rover as it tilted in the air, landed on its roof, and presumably crushed the driver. I woke up before I could find out.

I was attempting to create the longest slice of cucumber on record. There were certain rules but I can't remember most of them, apart from it had to go from top to bottom so you couldn't just do a long horizontal slice across the middle; a certain angle was required.

Anyone else keep having dreams where you have built long lasting connections with people, shared life, then get ripped away from it all upon waking? How do I stop this? It's killing me.

I tried buying a scrying stone from a Wiccan shop to contact some dream people with but the staff quite firmly talked me out of it.

I keep having dreams about a group of friends that don't exist in real life, and somehow in my dream we're all always sat at someone's house and I feel like these are people that I have known for a very long time. It always baffles me when I wake up.
|>>|| No. 441898
Yes. It's not normally friends, though. It's usually a girlfriend or lover. Sometimes it just seems to be someone who (afaik) never existed, other times I work out shortly after I wake up that it was some sublimated ideal of a mate's sister or someone I went to school with thirty years ago or something utterly bizarre like that.
I think I've posted this before but I really don't like what having this kind of dream says about the state of my mental health.

How do you know you're not a lad with a few eighths and some PlayStation that is merely dreaming you're a law-abider living through a global pandemic?

God, imagine waking up in the year 2000. None of this shit was real, you got hit by a car and were reverse Sam Tyler'd. THE DREAM, indeed.

You'd have all this knowledge of the future when you wake up on the couch. Can you stop 9/11? Do you remember enough to make millions on the stock market? Could you even invent something?
But your racing mind is stopped in its tracks when your mate J sparks up a biff and you notice Tony Hawk is still on pause. The cycle repeats.

I'm in a happy relationship, about to get our first house, plans to have kids on the way next year etc. but this dream has me pure shook:
I was studying in some sort of mega library and I locked eyes with this blonde siren with curls and I felt THAT jolt of electricity in my stomach. I've never felt attraction like it. It was better than any real life lust-love feeling I'd ever felt. I kept snatching glances and the feeling was almost too much to bear. Every time she would look back I would feel so excited - like this might just be on! And HER SMILE my god. I wanted to talk to her but the dream ended there.
I didn't want to wake up teary-eyed and emotional. Yeah I know I'm getting old, I've made my own choices and my responsibilities are gonna pile up but you didn't have to do me like that.
Sage for general sadness.

Do something to distract yourself. Spend time with the missus, have sex, go out for a walk and do some hobbying. You'll have forgotten this dream in a few days.
Speaking from experience.

That's nothing mate. I was dreaming that I had just led a mutiny to take control of the starship USS Armada, and while my crew were reprogramming the navigation computer ready for me to take the helm, I consciously paused to check what time it was in real life, and woke up.
I looked at my phone for the time, and then immediately said "FUCK."
I was about to have my own fucking spaceship.

I had a terrifying cosmic horror-themed dream last night. Looking out the window and seeing things inexplicably dripping from the sky onto the road, and then the stars rotate and the traditionally-depicted face of Jesus has been drawn in a nearby nebula by powerful aliens to mock us.

I dreamt I was driving in some town out in the sticks a bit (somewhere like Andover perhaps), and for some reason I parked my car at a petrol station at one of the pumps. I wondered off to drop some stuff off at a charity shop, but it was closed for lunch, and there was a massive queue of people waiting. So I gave up and walked back to my car.
For some reason I went into the petrol station shop, rather than just driving off. The cashier wanted to charge me five pounds for parking. Someone me and her walked off together for a stroll round the neighbouring park. When we got back, so lads had managed to wrench my boot open and damaged it. I was pondering what to do in that situation. I couldn't really fight them as I'm not really into fighting, and there was four or five or them. Then I woke up.
|>>|| No. 442186
Thanks for the advice, just got me real down for a few hours. But I'm feeling better now. My main hobby is chess at the moment and nevermind I get my arse kicked a lot it keeps the mind busy.
So close yet so far! Always the way with these dreams. Galactic domination does put my melancholy dream in the shade somewhat

Get yourself some GHB and experiment with your missus getting the dose high enough without passing out and you'll quickly learn what's possible.
|>>|| No. 442199
GHB is almost magical in how it can create a near psychic sexual connection between two near strangers. Lord alone knows what can be achieved if you already have a high level of trust and intimacy with someone.

'Getting ready' dreams have been more frequent for me lately. You know when you wake up but roll over and go back to sleep where in your dream you do get up and get ready like your mind is processing what you need to do (or your subconscious is tricking you).
Only I've noticed that everything in my flat is turned 90 degrees in my dream. I got to thinking about how I knew this given I have no reference but then realised that I do actually have an awareness of North as uphill where South is much easier to point to. This sent me down a rabbit hole on human magnetoreception.

It might be weird, but I enjoy my sushi with a nice sprinkling of alloy wheel cleaner.
|>>|| No. 442205
Careful lad, you don't want to conflate GHB and GBL despite one being a pro-drug of the other. GBL is definitely a dubious substance to take, GHB on the other hand is non toxic and doesn't clean your hubcaps or remove graffiti or do anything other than turn you into a sex demon and/or nod you out for three hours.
|>>|| No. 442206
GBL turns into GHB when mixed with alcohol, just in case you were wondering. Allegedly.
|>>|| No. 442207
Nope. I really don't want to get a bollocking for drugging up the dream thread but you need to mix it with a strong base such as sodium hydrochloride (Na-GHB) or potassium hydrochloride (K-GHB).
You could also just ingest it pure and let your natural lactonase enzymes convert it into GHB but that does involve ingesting a highly irritant non-food-grade industrial chemical with fuck knows how many trace heavy metals in it. Caveat emptor and all that.
Mixing alcohol with GBL or GHB is a really good recipe for
waking up choking on your own vomit.
Sage for totally off topic drugs bollocks.

I just had a rapid onset nightmare I'd been a victim of a malicious Scanadictine poisoning.

I dreamt my attic was soaked - due to damp, or a leak, the cause wasn't clear - and it was starting to heavily leak through the ceiling.
When I pushed my head through the trapdoor, in addition to the moisture I saw quite a few spider webs, one of which contained what looked like a tarantula-sized black widow. I agreed with my partner we would never go in there again.

Why do I keep dreaming about being back in school and being worried about not passing my A levels. Just last night, I had a dream where I suddenly realised I had been skipping history since the beginning of the school year, and that that somehow probably meant that I wouldn't be able to go to uni.
(for the record, I did well in school, and I did go on to uni)
|>>|| No. 442431
I have dreams like this semi-regularly - it's always A levels too, never uni. I do also have dreams about being incredibly stressed working in a kitchen, which is something I haven't done since 2017.
I have learned to just bask in the joy of remembering I don't have to do any of that shit anymore when I wake up.
|>>|| No. 442434
I wouldn't mind going back though, just for a bit. Not really to do my A levels again, but for some of the outrageous partying and shagging of 18 year olds I did back then.

I just had a dream that I was riding my bike down a hill here in the area and suddenly I triggered a speed camera. I said to myself, "Oh no, they got me", but then I thought, what am I worried about, my bicycle doesn't have a number plate, and I am wearing a covid mask.
|>>|| No. 442586
I have dreams similar to this all the time.
Either I'm at Uni and I have this sudden realisation that I forgot to do any work for an entire module, or, for some strange reason I need to go back to Comprehensive school in order to finish my degree.
Both cases make we wake up in a panicked sweat before realising I graduated eight years ago.
It's odd how frequently I have these.

What's strange is that after a year of almost non-stop remote working, it hasn't entered my subconscious and I haven't had dreams about it at night.
One of my coworkers told me the other day that she had a dream about our usual team being in video chat and all of a sudden we all vanished and all she could see on her screen was empty chairs and desks.

Is it strange? I don't remember having many exam-panic dreams while actually doing the exams. I'd expect that dreams about turning up to work and realising everyone's still WFH would mostly start happening after (if) WFH ends and everyone goes back to the office.
|>>|| No. 442591
>It's odd how frequently I have these.
I have this as well. Maybe it is something to do with the socialisation you undergo as part of a degree to fret over time management to maintain your life.
>What's strange is that after a year of almost non-stop remote working, it hasn't entered my subconscious and I haven't had dreams about it at night.
The thing that confuses me is that if you watch enough of a tv show or play enough of a game you will still dream you're inside it. I think my subconscious has tried before with WFH dreams but there's something about exchanging information with floating heads that is beyond my imaginative abilities.
I wish it would though, I'm frankly tired of processing old memories.

Yep. I replaced the clutch on my car just recently, which dragged on the entire day, and I went to bed dreaming about all the different parts of the clutch assembly that had to be taken apart and put back together. I remember then saying to myself in my dream, "Right, that's enough for the day".
