I had a beautiful dream last night.
The kind you get when you're half-lucid;
The kind where you're almost controlling it.
You probably heard of people trying to lucid dream as their ultimate escapist fantasy, actually exercising to get it.
I don't know what brought it on, awful sleep schedule or my happy pills I take before bed.

At first I flew around for a while. Or jumped super high, to be exact. Actually flying, feeling the
weightlessness and earth beneath my feet as I leapt several stories
into the air. The fear as I reached the apex of my jump and started
descending. That feeling in your stomach you get while falling.
I went through a familiar place in the city. It all seemed half-real.
After barely sticking the landing on roofs a couple times I decided
to use the elevator in a familiar apartment block. It's where I met her.

I hung out with Tomoko from them chinese cartoons. Sadly I don't

Why do memories of vivid dreams disappear soon after waking up?
—Gil Greengross, via e-mail

Ernest Hartmann, professor of psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine and director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, explains:

WE FORGET almost all dreams soon after waking up. Our forgetfulness is generally attributed to neurochemical conditions in the brain that occur during REM sleep, a phase of sleep characterized by rapid eye movements and dreaming. But that may not be the whole story.

Perhaps the most compelling explanation is the absence of the hormone norepinephrine in the cerebral cortex, a brain region that plays a key role in memory, thought, language and consciousness. A study published in 2002 in the American Journal of Psychiatry supports the theory that the presence of norepinephrine enhances memory in humans, although its role in learning and recall remains controversial.

A lack of norepinephrine, however, does not completely explain why we forget dreams so easily. Recent research suggests that dreaming lies on a continuum with other forms of mental functioning, which are all characterized by activity in the cerebral cortex. On the one side of this continuum is concentrated, focused thought; dreaming and mind wandering lie on the other, with some overlap among the types. The dreaming/reverie end involves some of the most creative and “far out” material. This type of less consciously directed thinking, however, is not easy to remember. Can you recall where your mind wandered while you were brushing your teeth this morning?

In general, we are very good at forgetting nonessentials. In fact, many of our thoughts, not just those we have while dreaming, are lost. We tend to recall only things that we think about often or that have emotional significance—a problem, a date, a meeting. Mulling over important thoughts activates our dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), a brain region that facilitates memory.

Although most dreams vanish, certain ones tend to remain. These dreams were so beautiful or bizarre, they captured our attention and increased activity in our DLPFC. Thus, the more impressive your dream or thought, the more likely you are to remember it.

There's a thing here in Pennsylvania where you make a hot sandwich out of two pancakes and scrapple and then douse it in your condiment of choice. I've seen it done with syrup, hot sauce and malt vinegar to name a few.

Snowbell!MbICrazyYs 41775349

File: 1487740785396.jpg (35.46 KB, 400x300, scrapple_400.jpg)


>Scrapple, also known by the Pennsylvania Dutch name Pannhaas or "pan rabbit," is traditionally a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and wheat flour, often buckwheat flour, and spices. The mush is formed into a semi-solid congealed loaf, and slices of the scrapple are then pan-fried before serving. Scraps of meat left over from butchering, not used or sold elsewhere, were made into scrapple to avoid waste. Scrapple is best known as an American food of the Mid-Atlantic states (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia). Scrapple and panhaas are commonly considered an ethnic food of the Pennsylvania Dutch, including the Mennonites and Amish. Scrapple is found in supermarkets throughout the region in both fresh and frozen refrigerated cases.

>Scrapple is typically made of hog offal, such as the head, heart, liver, and other trimmings, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head), to make a broth. Once cooked, bones and fat are removed, the meat is reserved, and (dry) cornmeal is boiled in the broth to make a mush. The meat, finely minced, is returned to the pot and seasonings, typically sage, thyme, savory, black pepper, and others are added. The mush is formed into loaves and allowed to cool thoroughly until set. The proportions and seasoning are very much a matter of the region and the cook's tastes. A few manufacturers have introduced beef and turkey varieties and color the loaf to retain the traditional coloration derived from the original pork liver base.

So a lion cub that looks a lot like Scar, is favoured by Scar and Nala adores Scar.... is not the father.

Honestly I believe the script writers simply forgot the relations at the last possible minute and just had to add that in there. After all it's pretty much Romeo and Juliet but with lions.

Hearts and Hooves Day Game Giveaway 41767367[View]

Hello, /oat/, and welcome to Nimble Wing's Hearts and Hooves Day Extra Games Giveaway Thread! After buying yet another Humble Bundle, I've been faced with the fact that I've got way too many extra keys for games that I already own. I figured that, given that today is a day of love, I'd show some love to you guys by just giving them away!

It'll basically be first come, first served for each game. Make sure you check the thread and maybe do a ctrl+f for the title in question before asking for it. But if the game isn't taken, just make a post that tells me which game you want, why you want it, and some way of getting the key to you. (Steam, Skype, Discord, e-mail, whatever) And make sure to post a cute pony!


A dark and somewhat surreal 2-D puzzle-platformer. One of my favorites, even if it's a bit short.
