If you read Bob Pease's column, "Pease Porridge," in "Electronic Design," you have probably noticed that he often writes of strange dreams that he remembers. The really weird ones wake him up, and he promptly writes down all that he remembers. Usually, his dreams have real-world, technical or scientific significance. One such recent recollection is in the 5/24/07 issue. ... 15498.html

Other extremely intelligent and accomplished people are prolific dreamers, from what I recall. Robert W. Lucky, Albert Einstein, Gordon E. Moore, to name a few you will recognize.

Here's my problem: I rarely ever have dreams that I recall anything about, and when I do, they are trivial and/or stupid - like driving by a billboard at night and watching the person's eye follow me as I pass by. I don't ever remember waking suddenly during one of the famous "I was falling" dreams. Now, if I did not already lack many of the other qualities common to geniuses, not owning this one might not bother me, but hey, what's so hard about dreaming that even those of us in the middle 50% can't manage a few notables?

How about you, do you dream often? If so, lay your best one on us. See if you can top Mr. Pease's.

Hello Kirt,

I am a rather avid dreamer myself, although my dreams are not on the intellectual level of Bob Pease's. Mine typically involve people I know, and are patently uninteresting. I would recall some of them here for you gents, but you would accuse me of imposing abusively boring stories upon your persons. :roll:

If this rain does not cease here soon, I might just start dreaming of drowning.
