OT: Weird Experiences

Submitted by MeanJoe07 on April 19th, 2016 at 2:32 PM

Good afternoon team,

When I was just a little Koala I started having the same dream.  I'm walking threw a dim tunnel with only the sound of a water drop every few seconds and my feet shuffling through the dark water. At first it seems like a sewer, but then I realize it was clean and sterile. There is a different kind of smell.  It smelled like a metal shop or a blacksmith or welding. Down a bit there is a yellow light shining from an connecting tunnel.  I am absolutely terrified of this light. I'm icy cold and trembling as I continue toward the light. The fear is blinding and repulsive like it represents all the horrors in the world happening all at once. I always wake up before I get to it, but it takes me about 15 to 20 minutes for my brain to get right.

Last night, I was awake in my office brewing some spring aged balsamic and at arund 12:15  I suddenly felt off balance. It was like time had sputtered and the hearing went out in my right ear leaving that high pitched sound, but it didn't go away.  I smelled that same metallic smell only very faintly and my computer flashed a murky yellow for a split second. It so fast, but I saw it. My heart rate skyrocketed and then I woke up lying on the bathroom floor with the shower on. I went back to my office and the balsamic was there and it was 12:23.  Only a few minutes had past.

Has anyone else experienced a glitch in the matrix or a weird unexplained experience and wondered what happened?  I don't use substances during balsamic season to ensure high quality so it can't be that.  I don't know how to feel about this.

DISCUSS

PS Marsupial Monday will be happening one of these days soon.

I just used this saying about an hour ago while talking to my wife about dealing with a difficult person. I don't know if I've ever really used it before. I'm sure I have but it's been a long time. Perhaps this Koala has pulled us into his weird matrix tunnel and connected us in thought.

I had this dream where I relished the fray
And the screaming filled my head all day
It was as though I'd been spit here
Settled in, into the pocket
Of a lighthouse on some rocky socket
Off the coast of France, dear

One afternoon, four thousand men died in the, water here
And five hundred more were thrashing madly
As parasites might, in your blood

Now I was in a lifeboat designed for ten, ten only
Anything that systematic would get you hated
It's not a deal nor a test nor a love of something fated

The selection was quick, the crew was picked in order
And those left in the water
Got kicked off our pant leg
And we headed for home

Then the dream ends when the phone rings
"You doing all right?"
He said, "It's out there most days and nights
But only a fool would complain"
Anyway, Susan, if you like
Our conversation is as faint a sound in my memory
As those fingernails scratching on my hull

minutes ago I was perfectly sane and fairly well adjusted.  Suddently I am now really twitchy and I seem to be sweating a lot.  I also may be bleeding but I am not sure why or from where. I need to leave soon but I don't think I am going to remember how to drive.  The Horror.  The Horror.

Did Todd Jones recently come in to pitch to the middle of the order? This is an important question when diagnosing what might be occurring here. Also, is it severity level "bloop single" or severity level "walked on four straight pitches"? That will determine how urgent the need for medical assistance will be in these cases.

The Horror.  

Have yourself a thimbleful of balsamic.  Slurp it like you would noodles from a Korean soup.  Follow it up with an ounce and a half of decent bourbon with an ice cube and you'll be fine.

For sure the constant Rich Rod threads. It's like every time I forget the last one a new one pops up. Not that it is necessarily a good or bad thing. Just a weird coincidence.

a glitch in the matrix, but I now pretty often have "1984" moments of double-think where I accept one truth I am being given from the mass media while knowing for an absolute certainty that it is untrue.  And I pretty much do what that book said I would I do and just keep going on about my business and consciously tell myself just to move on.
