Busines Strategy: 8 surprising facts about dreams that will leave you like “What the hell”

Published

on

Dreams can be mysterious, bewildering, eye-opening or worse still a nightmarish living hell.
Here are 8 surprising facts about dreams that you might know about:

1. The average person has about 1,460 dreams per year; in other words that’s about 4 dreams a night.

 

Most people over the age of 10 dream at least 4 to 6 times per night during a stage of sleep called REM (for Rapid Eye Movements, a distinguishing characteristic of this stage of sleep).
During REM periods our brains become as active as they are during waking, although not all parts of the brain are reactivated.

2. You forget half your dream within five minutes of waking up!

And
within 10 minutes, you forget 90% of it. This being attested to the
fact that the function of dreaming is to weed out unnecessary memory
connections that the brain makes over time.
Being able to recall most of your dream would defeat this very purpose.

3. Men experience up to five erections every night while dreaming.

So, other than that ‘morning wood’ that dudes have, the average man is said to typically have 3-5 erections per 8 hours of sleep, usually at night. Yep. But don’t fret just yet, your body is still functioning normally.

4. You can’t scream for help while having a nightmare.

 

Here you are having
a nightmare and you eventually wake up screaming to the top of your
lungs. The fact is you might wake up screaming but cannot scream during
the nightmare itself.
Reason being with most dreams (and nightmares) occurring during REM sleep, your voluntary muscles are essentially paralysed.

5. Women may be more prone to nightmares than men

A study reveals that women experience significantly more nightmares than men and have more emotional dreams.

6. Some people can only dream in black and white.

Close to 12% of people in the world dream entirely in black and white.
Reason being childhood exposure to black-and-white television. It is
more common in people over 55 years of age and is reported less in those
under 25.

7. You can totally be diagnosed with something known as “nightmare disorder.”

 

Nightmare disorder symptoms include repeated
awakenings from the major sleep period or naps with detailed recall of
extended and extremely frightening dreams.
Those who suffer from
such disorder end up having distress or impairment in social,
occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

8. Recurring dreams could be a sign you have unresolved issues in your life.

If you keep having recurring dreams,
it could be a manifestation of some unresolved issue. They usually
begin in one’s childhood, and can persist through one’s lifetime.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
