When we go to sleep, our imaginations get the chance to run wild in the form of our dreams. Some imaginations are more creative than others...

Lately, I've been having a recurring dream about owning dozens of ferrets, guinea pigs, mice, and other small furry critters. They all live in tanks and cages stacked on top of each other. I start panicking when I realize that it's been a long time since I last fed some of them, and I frantically check if they're still alive. Then I notice that all of the ferrets have escaped their cage and I start looking around my house for them...

I always wake up from this dream feeling alarmed.

Some dreams are so emotionally impactful or vivid that they stay with the dreamer long after they've woken up. Redditor u/Dublessman got to hear about people's most interesting dreams when they asked, "What's the weirdest dream you've ever had?"

10. That's a new kind of lead poisoning 

"In gym class we were invading a Russian military base. I shot a lock with a gun, and then the bullet turned into liquid and landed in my mouth. I got led poisoning and my gym teacher gave me a gummy vitamin to treat it."

9. My throat feels funny...

"Last night I dreamt there was a little flappy bit of skin in my mouth, so I started to pull it to get rid of it. Turns out it was connected to my whole esophagus, and I ripped out like three feet of it and my throat started filling with blood."

8. I can't tell if they loved or hated that teacher

"Just a couple nights ago I had a dream my English teacher broke into my house, stole a little desk fan from my room, yelled at my family, and ate food from our pantry"

7. I'm trying to picture a purple tornado and it's kind of pretty

6. That's a scary dream to keep having

"I had a reoccurring dream as a child when I slept in a bunkbed with my sister where the room would flood and an alligator would come into our room and eat my sister on the top bunk. I'm still traumatized."

5. Did this ever happen in the movies?

4. Are whales fast in real life?

"I forget the entire dream, but I was with some friends at the mall and then it suddenly filled with water and we were being chased by slow whales. We could still walk even though we were under water"

3. "Je te mangerai comme du fromage"

"I dreamt that a bunch if giant Venus flytraps were saying something to me in French. I told my dad (a native French speaker) what they were saying. He told me they were telling me that they were going to eat me like cheese."

2. I'm guessing this manager wasn't the best to work with

"I had a dream about my manager from my old job flying around the grocery store with demon wings that moved around in circles instead of flapping, while also carrying a large flaming sword. He would fly around and cleave people's heads off while shouting 'Sucks to be you!!'"

1. It means you have a vivid imagination!

Giphy

"I had a dream where a shirtless old man was walking through the desert carrying a dead unicorn over his shoulders. I'm still trying to figure out what it means."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
