HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN?



How about in your dreams?

Quote:
In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.
So some of you may have seen him, eh.
But why?

HOAX SITE THEORY

LOL

I have intestinal cramps.


------------------------------------------------
That thought came to me while viewing the guy haunting peoples dreams.



ZenGum  Thursday Oct 29 06:14 AM

Kinda spooky ... but I am more worried by the idea that a professional psychiatrist would leave documents about one patient lying about on his desk where other patients could see them.



spudcon  Thursday Oct 29 07:06 AM

I've seen this guy in real life!



skysidhe  Thursday Oct 29 08:03 AM

Highly suspect since they are seeing a psychiatrist.

If I saw that face I would have intestinal cramps too.

I have NEVER seen Peter Lorre in my dreams!



birdclaw  Thursday Oct 29 10:14 AM

Do you think if I asked him to pluck his uni-brow in my dreams that other people would thank me?

It took Carl Sagan 10 years to figure out how to communicate from beyond the grave, but he did it. Sagan is the Chuck Norris of science. Who better to give advice?






xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Oct 29 11:20 AM

Welcome to the Cellar, zombieskin, you may be right.



Shawnee123  Thursday Oct 29 11:26 AM

That's not Carl Sagan, that's Dick Cavett



Cloud  Thursday Oct 29 11:32 AM

so, these are all psychiatric patients?

hmm.

Are you speaking of the posters?

Yep.



Slothboy  Thursday Oct 29 12:54 PM

I see this man every time I look in the mirror.

The reason I'm in your dreams is that I like to watch the ones where you are naked.



Sundae  Thursday Oct 29 02:10 PM

Firstly - ouch for the damning of psychiatric patients.
Feel free to call me a fruitloop, but I have seen a psychiatrist and more than once.
Didn't help, because they were only 10 minute referrals - he seemed to think I was sane. But I at least I had it comfirmed by a professional, eh?

Secondly - nope. Never sin him before in my life. Then again, how many times do I need to say how ridiculously bad I am with faces before the whole world just knows.
I dream pretty extravagantly and he's never been there.
I wonder if a further test would result in his features being identified as "everyman" - the Caucasian version anyway.

Many of my dream ciphers look nothing like their real life counterparts (and in fact change into other people partway through the dream). So I have absolutely no belief that a photofit assembled from dreams means anything other than vague recollection and desire to conform upon being asked.

There. I don't often set my stall out that firmly. But dreams is a big thing for me. So there it is. Spank me and call me Randy Fruitloop if'n I'm wrong.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Oct 30 12:25 AM

Randy fruitloop.
You're not wrong, I just wanted to spank you, thinking about the randy part.



SPUCK  Friday Oct 30 05:32 AM

LOL!

Dream Surfer Theory has to be the funniest thing ever. Who thought up that beauty?



capnhowdy  Friday Oct 30 08:04 AM

Looks like obama with his ears trimmed to me.



Sundae  Friday Oct 30 10:18 AM

I've found I quite like being spanked.
By Bruce at least.



spudcon  Wednesday Nov 4 10:12 PM

This is his female counterpart. Scares the hell outa me.
