  1. The state of the building was really bad probably with water coming through the roof. That means all the wooden constructions, like the floors, have to be replaced. Building the whole thing anew is probably a better solution than patching the old pieces. I'm not sure if just preserving a facade would still be called preservation in Germany, but the rules vary.

    The WTF Thread

    It's because the higher the humidity the less you can cool by evaporating sweat on your skin. There is so much "water" in the air, that it cannot take any more.

    Because we still don't have one. Interview at the Late Late Show - a year old but funny.

    I know, I know. But June in D.C. felt like an aquarium. Overheated one.

    100%? Isn't it what they call liquid air?

    The nitpick about GO so far: you have no singing nightingales at the end of summer. They only sing in spring. Anyone watching Chernobyl?

    The WTF Thread

    If they weren't bound together there is no way they would stay in a stack even after falling from 2 meters. At work, we use to throw our paper waste through the window on the second floor into a container that stands directly under it. No stack stays together. Maybe someone was a newspaper deliverer and forgot this stack in his cellar, and after he found it, getting rid of them in someone else's garden might be a good idea.

    Dreams

    No. This happened mostly after changing the medication. What I still experience very often though, is a kind of translucent geometric patterns that seem to crossfade the whole field of view, directly after I woke up and opened my eyes. But it disappears after the first blink. I also have white points flying through my sight, like little meteors from time to time.

    Dreams

    I have them from the antidepressants. As if they stirred the vision center in my brain in many funny ways. I remember once, after a medication change it was so damn intensive that I've thought "how the heck am I going to sleep in this disco?!" This is one of the "alternative reality" dreams. As if the not-being-prepared state aggravated from one dream to another. Last one I remember was "only" about my parents waking me up too late on the day of exams. Another common theme is trying to achieve something and being confronted with one obstacle after another. There is one I remember quite well: I was driving to my parents in another city and stopped on my way (don't remember why). Then I could not find my car. I was running around the building I knew I let my car at, but couldn't find the side street. Again and again. Then for a second I finally saw my car, but someone distracted me and when I looked again, it was gone. Because I really needed to visit my parents ASAP, I made myself a makeshift skateboard and hit the road, quite in a hurry. The skateboard broke. So I ran to the place with a train station to take a train to my parents. I know the city well but could not find the station. When I found it, there were construction works going on around it, so I could not find the way to the entrance. Then I could not find the counter… Then I woke up feeling like after a night of hard work… Those dreams are exhausting. PS, I had a fake lucid dream again last night.

    That the end wasn't a dire disappointment?
  11. In that case the blue circle should be much smaller.

    Once you mention it - I haven't flown for a while. Don't remember any recent toilet dreams either. I don't remember much anyway. There might be some moving-to-new-places dreams though.
  13. We've had them in the 3. class I guess. Very soon in math education. Not as complicated as some of the diagrams in Wikipedia though.

    Dreams

    The bulls were made of red paper. And I don't remember the dream from yesterday, only that I've had the sensation "this is a dream", but without control. Well, maybe the lucid dreams will come next.

    Dreams

    I have that too, but now when you wrote it, I actually cannot tell if I recognize it as a dream in the dream, or do I have the feeling that the dream belongs to another one's universe after I woke up. In any case, there is a strong feeling of visiting a parallel universe I know already. Or several universes. Is it a lucid dream, when you dream you have a lucid dream? Funny, because this kind of dreams started quite recently, and I think they come once in a few weeks. The last one was last night. As for continuing dreams - one of the antidepressants caused spectacular movie-like dreams with complex stories. I could wake up and dream the follow-up. Apart from that, I've had a dream with an ad break once. I don't remember the dream, but I remember the ad: it was about Red Bull ketchup. It had a Bar scene with two people and ended with a flock of winged red origami bulls flying around. (btw, is this a proper succession of adjectives?)

    Because I love it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    Even both, I tell you!
  18. The funniest thing is when the green makes perfect sense, even to the author, even if he/she/they never meant it that way. (Just a side note, has nothing to do with Sherlock)
  19. Okay, that's the killer argument.

    Thank you for the link. So far the Cineplex in Mannheim is the only one within a somehow sane distance that actually have a link for booking it. Other don't - but I also checked the websites from Frankfurt and Berlin, so there is still hope that they may put the links later. But at least I know now where to look for it. Today I've seen Goodbye Christopher Robin. I actually liked it more than Christopher Robin. The movie tells the story about how Pooh and his friends came to life. It's on Sky. I also recommend a "Russian version of Apollo 13": Spacewalker - but telling the story of the of Alexey Leonov. If you like the first movie you will like the other too. It's on Amazon Prime, sadly only in Germany. https://www.amazon.de/Spacewalker-Yuriy-Itskov/dp/B0764T8T65/ref=tmm_aiv_swatch_1?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1559854858&sr=1-1 I also might take a look at the Salyut 7 next https://www.amazon.de/Salyut-7-Pavel-Derevyanko/dp/B07B8CVP66/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=Salyut+7%3A+The+True+Story+of+the+Soviet+'Apollo+13'&qid=1559855444&s=instant-video&sr=1-1-fkmr0

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    No worries - I wasn't entirely serious, just a bit curious. Actually, I found it quite funny.
  22. Not that I support that theory, but… they actually said they wrote it all and even based their writing on another fiction.
  23. Aaah, this one. 🙄 They could come with something new for a change. Or he never woke up after the surgery in HLV and his brain is hallucinating while shutting down. But if you liked TAB, you might prefer the other version. Oh, yes, if you didn't like S3, you might choose the version when he actually hit the pavement. And the dream is John's.

    Why this is my thread? I don't even hang my toilet paper on the wall, it stands on a shelf!

    Talking about "the horror" - Apocalypse Now is coming back to cinemas. Unfortunately for only one night. And I still haven't found out where to book me a ticket.
