    I am just extremly curious if you guys have ever felt like falling off a cliff....okay that was horrible here's a more detailed vers. :D

    When you're sleeping, you close your eyes but you can feel that you're not 100% asleep yet. Thoughts are still running through your mind, in other words you're sort of concious and half asleep at the same time. Then all of a sudden you feel like you're falling off a building, cliff, off the bed or watever...and when you hit the ground your body kinda bounces up. I've asked a few of my mates and most of them have felt it before or recently.

    Just wondering if you guys get it. I must say it's a awkward feeling and yet it feels cool. :)



    2 Myths:

    1) I heard that opening a fresh bottle of coke, then put 10 mentos inside, it'll explode. Has anyone done this stunt to confirm that it's true?

    2) Eating a bannana and then drink coke will make you spew. Anybody experienced this? :p

    Just some other random stuff i decided to put in, i know some of these myth might be old school, but i havn't really heard of a person i trust saying 'yes it works' etc.....

    Yeah i had the same feeling a lot of times before. Infact, a funny little incedent. I was on my left side, and at the edge of the bed. Then i had this feeling that i was starting to fall towards the back. So, i tried to roll over. The result was that i had my head stuck between the bed and my desk (which they were too close to each other) and my foot wrapped around the bed sheet. Of course, people were too busy laughing so they couldn't help.

    LOL nice one Glidefan!

    I have had that feeling before. The problem is I can't remember what I was thinking to cause it because I wake up with a start then instantly fall asleep again! its wierd.

    Mind you on the idea of things you do without thinking I managed to throw my tv remote into my head last night when I saw something gross on the tv. (guy was easting a aprt of a bull you don't want to know on fear factor) I just let go of the remote for no aparent reason and wack lol.

    the falling off cliff happens to me a lot but not recenlty, the only weird that happens to me is that sometimes i forget that i dont have braces anymore and i panic when i feel my teeth with my tongue and there;s nothing :)

    The banana thing isn't true (for me at least, I like cola And banana's so on occasion I consume both of 'em after another, no spewing here! :p)

    That "music"....TERRIBLE! But looked cool though, reminds me of when I was a little boy shaking the 7-up bottle and opening it.........the ceiling didn't like it! :D

    hehehe.....that's kindergarden chemistry.....


    wanna have some real fun?


    WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM FOR THE FOLLOWING EXPERIMENT.


    All ya need is water. A 2 liter bottle, fill it less than half way. Now, put that aside, and grab you some chunks of dry ice....(available freely when you purchase ice cream at your local store).

    Drop in a few chunks, you will see them start to boil. Put the lid on the bottle tight.

    Now,.........RUN. Minimum safe distance for this experience should be at least 50-100 feet away. The resulting explosion from the pressure being built up in the bottle (ya see nothing stops the reaction of the boiling dry ice) will leave very little left of the bottle, and in some cases such as placing it in sand, will leave a crater behind!!

    I managed to ski off a cliff in a white-out in the early 80's -- about 35'. Weird feeling becoming weightless when you don't expect it but I managed to land and ski away. Later in the lodge I was staying in I took off my ski boots and immediately fell flat on my face. I'd buggered up my left knee and it seemed that my ski boots had been holding me up all day.

    I was in Whistler BC in early January this year and a local managed to do the same thing over a 150' cliff... unfortunately for him he didn't survive :(

    Yes, I've had the 'falling' dream...as for spewing - Chocolate Milk and Pineapple DO NOT mix. I did that one morning back in high school. I had a terrible stomach ache on the bus ride in, got to school, was walking past a garbage can and :puke: My friends have never forgotten, and always bring it up if some ones eating pineapple. "Remember the time you..." Grrr...

    My guess is that any citrusy type product and milk product wouldn't mix too well. Then again, I've had a pineapple smoothy before...

    Never had any cliff experience during my dreams but I did have this one crazy ass dream in this neverending forest that kept comming back...

    About coke + banana's = doesn't make you spew, I tried it.

    As for mentos... I ain't trying that with coke :p

    Since the dry ice thing was mentioned here, I feel like I should talk about a safer way to do it, in case anybody reads this and tries.

    First, pour water into the 2L bottle and kind of bend it in half so there is a kink in it. Then, put the dry ice in the bottle. Hold the bottle so that the kink keeps the dry ice and water seperate. Put the lid onto the bottle, then throw it. The pressures that build up inside will cause the bottle to explode.

    The safe thing about this is the bottle has to be thrown before the dry ice and water mix, so there isn't a chance of you hurting yourself (if done in this order, regardless of speed).

    And as for that other stuff, the myths, I'm not sure about those. But seeing as how I don't drink carbonated beverages, I'm not about to find out :p

    Also, I can honestly say that I've never had a dream, or a feeling that I am falling off of a cliff. Maybe I am missing out?

    Isnt the "Falling off a cliff experience" a old saftey mechanism that we still have left over from before weevolved? So that we couldwake up and sort ourselves out if we were starting to fall from the tree we were sleeping in?


    /"Creationists" dont bash me , im entitled to my beliefs , as are you.

    You know, I've heard something like that before. I'm not sure how legit it is, but I have heard it, so you aren't alone ;)

    I know the falling feeling your describing, its not really fun, it always scared me. Sometimes, when it happens, im falling, other times people shoot me, or stab me, or harm me in some way, and i wake up immediatly.

    It sounds plausable though, who knows? could be true.
