    I know many of us have an active dream life, just wondering if anyone here sleep walks, or sleep eats.

    There was something on this the other night, more specifically that it's being used as a defense for some who have committed murder...while sleepwalking.

    I know I have fallen out of bed a few times while dreaming, but I have never been seen walking or eating cerial like some have claimed they do.

    I don't sleep walk, but I have been witnessed to have sat straight up in bed, start talking as though in the middle of a conversation with eyes wide open, then slam back down onto the mattress, all the while asleep.

    I've probably mentioned this before - but as a Kid I was VERY sleep-walky...I'd wake up wondering the house, groping the walls crying my eyes out in panic. That was fixed after a spiritual experience when I was about 5 though.

    :D

    YOU could be a candidate for this... :D
    It seems that there is this condition that people who are in a REM state instead of being paralyzed still have their motor functions and can act out their dreams.

    My ex used to have work conversations in his sleep, and say things like "I have that file in my car" it was kind of funny to listen to...

    My old roomate had something similar, except he spoke gibberish.

    No! The blue one. I said math going start! Peanuts!

    It would always catch me off guard and freak me out like he was actually talking to me, and then I'd remember he was just crazy. I bet there were nights where he was talking all sorts of nonsense and I was up wide-eyed talking to no one... bet that would have been entertaining to watch.

    Yeah, that too. There were countless times where I would wake up with my mom screaming at me, and I'd be so confused. Turns out, she would come in to wake me up, and I would sit up and acknowledge her, than immediately lay back down. After 3 or 4 times, she'd blow her top and I'd wake up all confused as to how I'd pissed her off before I even woke up. I was GOOD at getting under my mom's skin.
