This week I give my lecture on sleep for the the 200 students in my PSYC 120 Introduction to Psychology class. I've taught this class for years and I'm still surprised at how the lecture on sleep is the most popular lecture I give judged by the sheer number of hands going up and questions I get from the students.
In light of this coming lecture my eye was caught by a post on the Daily Dish about the blog Sleep Talkin' Man. The blog is written by the wife of an man who, apparently, says the most interesting and hilarious things in his sleep. Adam's wife listens, records and then posts these utterances on the Sleep Talkin' Man blog. Beware, Adam has quite the dreamlife so the blog isn't for kids. As Adam's wife tells us:
Some of the content on this page is not suitable for young eyes. Parents, shield your children! The views expressed by Sleep Talkin' Man rarely reflect the attitudes/opinions of waking Adam. Especially the desire to exterminate all vegetarians. But he does hate lentils.Here are some of my favorite utterances from Sleep Talkin' Man:
"Oompa loompas don't sing in heaven. They tidy up the clouds."
"I'm here! I know, I brighten the room. Everything's better."
"My badger's gonna unleash hell on your a**. Badgertastic!"
"I want to be a cowboy. I don't want to be a panda."
"Monkey power! Straight from the jungle."
I've already used "Badgertastic!" a couple of times today.
