Last Post For Tonight: Lucid Dreams

One of the amazing feats you can achieve with lucid dreaming

Lucid dreams are basically dreams that you are aware of. Like if you have ever been dreaming and you thought to yourself this can't be real, I must be dreaming. That is what a lucid dream is.

Why I am talking about this? well for the past couple of months on and off I have been trying to induce them, why? because when you become lucid you are able to live out your wildest dreams, if you'll excuse the pun. 

You're intrigued? well there are different methods on lucid dreaming, a couple that i'm sporting right now is reality checks, every now and again I push my hand against a wall in hope that I'll will replicate this in a dream so when I do in theory I will pass through the wall in the dream. Another technique I tried once and may continue is "subliminal messages", it's a piece of music with hidden messages which you fall asleep to, so you hear them in your sleep so you can dream about it.

I've read forums and stories about people being lucid where they're flying and meeting celebrities and things like that, I haven't successfully achieved a lucid state. But when I eventually do I have plenty of plans.

This post is the sort of thing I want to do frequently so expect posts on lucid dreams.

5th post of the night I feel I've done pretty well for my first nigh at the blogging game, just hopefully I stick at it, 5 post a day sounds like a plan, just need people to read them. See you tomorrow :D

Gary: Tank Commander

Just legendary, two words which describes the show that just finished on BBC 1 Scotland. 

The show is about 4 Scottish boys who've patrolled Iraq and Afghanistan, it's based around when they come back and are doing TA tasks.

Anyway tonights show was just top notch, at the start we find out that there is a possibility that Barrack Obama, who Gary nicknames Barry O B, is attending a climate control meeting in Scotland. It then shows the boys on foot patrol around fields, Gary being the gullible loveable character spots "a bugs bunny rabbit" which turn out to be a family wanting to bring a message of peace to Obama but proceed to be arrested by Gary and the gang. Through the episode they reveal  that the present of peace is a tapestry with Obamas face on it, towards the end of the episode there is a police escort which is hinted that it's for Obamas. Gary proceeds to give him the tapestry, he then gives it back and tells him that Obama has only 1 "m".

This is just a quick run through of the episode but honestly it's a great tv show and deserves to be broadcasted in all of Britain.

iPhone Update!

So I downloaded an app so I can post from anywhere on my iPhone, I decided that if I truly want to be an official blogger I want to post at least 5 times a day.

Anyway the app is good for blogging on the go but one downside is that there's no ability to add pictures so the posts may be lacking that special something, but it's good.

Scottish Facebook Takeover!!

Classic Ned with Mera peak Berghaus and "kery oot"
So last night has got to be the funniest nights on Facebook I've seen in a while,  just get this in here before I finnish the rest of the story, In Scotland a Ned is a Non-Educated Delinquent it's the equivalent of an English Chav/Yob or the American equivalent to a little ass hole teenager who goes out o the streets at night and drinks then goes home and gets there ass kicked by there parents.

Anyway, so early evening yesterday I seen the start of the takeover "The awkward moment a ned thinks it's cool to tuck his trakies into his socks" which made me chuckle, I went away for an hour or so to come back to an explosion of Facebook pages; "Dropping yer wayne off at primary school, then runin back to school so you don't miss your math exam", "Attacking bus drivers because the don't believe you're a half fare". Obviously I'm translating them into proper english, because only a true Scot would understand. I'll just explain they two pages; the first one jokes about the fact that many Scottish teenagers get pregnant at a young age and that they're starting school when they're mum is just finishing school. The second one plays on the fact that when Scottish teenagers turn 16 many still ask for half fares on the bus.

So that was my first real blog, how did i do?


Well, well, well what do we have here? Whats that you say? A blog? Oh yeah ok its a blog, I thought you could have came up with a more witty funnier comment but no, Blog will do.

So I know what you're thinking, What's this blog about eh? Well if you were smart enough to read the title you may already know, But anyway I digress this blog is about ANYTHING, that's right if it's a thing I would blog about it, from plants and trees to wasps and bees (see what i done there, little bit of rhyme).

But honestly it really varies from things that interest me and things that are going on in my life, so it could be about Apple one day and what's on tv another. It could go from rants about the social and moral implications of the war in Iraq to Gary: Tank Commander on BBC 1 Scotland at 10:35 pm tonight, seriously watch that it's too funny too miss.

Anyway hope you enjoy this as much as I hope I'll enjoy writing it :D
