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

"When I was 4 I had a dream that my dad turned into a purple tornado and chased me to the bridge and tossed me off of it."

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?

"The green onion veggietales criminal broke into my room, let a tiger in, and then watched it eat me."

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."

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
