10 Interesting Facts About Dreams

Last night I was watching the movie Inception. Most of you must have seen it and know that it is about dreams. In this movie a team of young people dream at will and share the same dream with each other at the same time - interesting isn’t it. During the Roman Era dreams were thought to be messages from the gods and even submitted to the Roman Senate for analysis and dream interpretation. Dream interpreters used to accompany military leaders into battles and campaigns!
Here is a list of interesting facts about dreams:

Hilarious Collection of Travel Agent Horror Stories

I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window.

A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?"

I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when she interrupted me with "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts." Without trying to make her look like the stupid one, I calmly explained, "Capecod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa." Her response ... click!.

Celebrity FBI Files

Marilyn Monroe
After the death of Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe in 1963, the FBI launched an investigation into numerous alternative theories about her overdose on sleeping pills. The probe focused on speculation that the sex symbol killed herself after a married man with whom she was having an affair broke off their relationship. The probe also sought to disprove rumors that the "right-wing" agents of the FBI and CIA or the Mafia had an interest in Monroe's death as a means of embarrassing Robert F. Kennedy, who was also reputed to be having an affair with her.

Jet engine powered bicycle

Raul Oaida tests his bicycle propelled with a self-built jet engine on a road in the back of his house in Deva, 399 km of Bucharest January 12, 2013. Using his pocket money and sponsorship from various sources, Oaida, 19, made the engine in about 3 years and became the first Romanian to build a jet engine in the country after his compatriot Henri Coanda developed a jet engine for an airplane in 1910 in France, which is said to be the first ever jet engine. Oaida clocked a speed of up to 42 km per hour with the jet bicycle during the test.

Top 5 Feral Children

5. John Ssebunya
It is said that John Ssebunya, also known as ‘The Ugandan Monkey Boy,’ ran away from home when he was three years old after witnessing his father murder his mother. He fled to the Ugandan jungles where he was said to be taken care of by green African monkeys. In 1991 he was found hiding in a tree by a woman named Millie who was a local tribeswoman. After spotting him she went back to her village to alert the men who then went into the jungle to capture John. While they were eventually successful, John and the monkeys, which had become his protectors, fought back, throwing sticks to defend him. In the end he was captured and taken back the village.
Once back in the village he was cleaned up but his entire body was covered in hair called hypertrichosis, a condition that brings about excessive amounts of hair in places that there usually isn’t hair. Also since he was living in the wild he had contracted a case of intestinal worms that were said to be over half a meter long once they exited his body. He was full of injuries- mainly his knees from imitating how a monkey walks. He was then given to Paul and Molly Wasswa who ran an orphanage, and the two taught him how to speak, though many believe he knew how to talk before running away. Today he sings with the Pearl of Africa children’s choir and exhibits little to no animalistic behavior.
