Dreams can play out like reflections of our reality. Sometimes, they're bringing out deep desires in our subconscious. Other times they play out the most outlandish connections and images we can see. So, when our dreams lead us down a dark and bizarre path we never really get over, it's important to analyze it. You need to see what it's trying to tell you.


Reddit user, u/MossCoss, wanted to hear about the peskiest sleep thoughts when they asked:

Hey, Reddit, what's the weirdest dream you've ever had?

I Think It's Safe To Say This Dream Relationship Is Over

I was at a party and my crush appeared out of nowhere and said "Time to change" then shot me in the head.

Creepiest dream ever.

We'd Probably All See That Movie

I went with a wizard to Las Vegas and he helped me make a bunch of money. The end.

That's basically the plot of The Hobbit except instead of Las Vegas it's The Lonely Mountain

Replaying Whole Days Are The Worst

I had a dream that I did a whole day at work. Ran through all the details, all the meetings.

Then i woke up and had the do the whole day over.

It was a weird dream but only weird when I had to relive it.

This One's Pretty Easy To Understand

Opened my eyes in a green meadow to a double-barrel shotgun pointed at my forehead point blank and then it shot and I woke up. 2-second dream.

Married a donkey in a bouncy-house maze; flashed forward 5 years to our new house in a Denver suburb fighting over financial problems that lead to me being divorced by the donkey. That was a weird one.

Sequels Are Never As Good, Are They?

Was walking through a pier when all of a sudden a T-Rex appeared killing people. Managed to survive but it stepped on my mom and I carried her to a bench and cried for her. Woke up crying and realised it was just a dream.

What A Terrible Space Program

Most memorable was I was an astronaut, in full gear, piloting a giant (as big as the moon) flip-flop made of welded metal, while maniacally cackling as I crashed it into the earth.

Asking The Real Questions

Giphy

A man gave birth to an ostrich and then me and the nurses went out for donuts.

TheCheshireKate

I have an important question, was the ostrich live or in an egg?

thedreamlan6

A more important question is what kind of donuts were they?

Coma > Dream

I was in a 4 day coma when I was 16. The dreams felt like they lasted years. So vividly real too. Indistinguishable from real life.

I spent a few months living on a jungle island split 50/50 down the middle. Half was normal but the other half was colored like a Dr. Suess book. Objects looked normal, but so vibrantly colored. There's a tiger there trying to kill me, sometimes it's a lion. After a few months of survival I get picked up by passing rum runners.

I relive those dreams every time I sleep.

Winner! And, Gross.

I had a sex dream with Jeff Bezos.

I wasn't having sex with m him, he was just in the room making eye contact with me the whole time, sitting on his stacks of billions.

You may have heard of the phrase "retail therapy" before, which is the act of buying things for personal enjoyment.

Well, there's some truth to that.

The University of Michigan actually studied the affects of shopping on our sadness levels. Purchasing something you enjoy can actually decrease sadness 40 times better than not purchasing something.

There are tons of other benefits like dopamine increases, anxiety reduction and improved mood. We wanted to know what people are buying to give them that rush of happy hormones and increase their joy.

When we think of a "hero" we might think of someone in a cape who's saving civilians from terror. Or maybe we think of the essential workers we've called heroes throughout the pandemic.

Heroism is simply defined as "great bravery," according to Oxford Languages.

If being a hero is about showing courage, bravery and strength, heroic feats happen all around us every day with ordinary people.

They say good things come in small packages—as a lifelong member of the "Never hit 5 feet tall" club it's a phrase I've had thrown at me often.

It's right up there with "small but mighty" and "people mcnugget."

It's popular because there's a fair bit of truth to it, though.

When it comes to some things, smaller is just flat out better.

Everyone has their "type" when it comes to sexual attraction.

It could be a woman's scent, a man's fashion sense, or a confident attitude that really gets a heart fluttering at 100 m.p.h.
However, what someone thinks is "hot" or "sexy" may be a total turn-off for others.
