This is Creepy Pasta, which has similar stories. I am posting it here, because it's very well written and fits the genre, excuse the topic violation. https://www.reddit.com/r/creepypasta/comments/8yrcv4/go_with_the_light/

"Don't answer the door" was removed a week ago. Anyone got a summary?

19 Name: Anonymous : 2018-11-19 14:53 ID:4p/uphT7 [Del]

That's sad. It was about a guy who, as a kid, had a mysterious man visit them, and every single member of his family just accepted him as a friend. Later on, it turned out that the guy was an alien, and if they disturbed him or questioned him, he turned violent and destroyed everything in sight.

By the way, The Old Man Down the Road is sadly no longer available, it was a great story.

Lucid dreaming (8)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-25 04:56 ID:OEWcuRZ9 [Del]

Hi,

So I've been trying to learn how to lucid dream for the last few days. So far, I've only achieved it once, and I don't know how I did it. Contrary to what I've read, it was stable enough and I didn't wake up immediately, and I even summoned a dream character (a friend of mine), who was aware, like me, that this was real.

The rest of the time, I seem to accept the dream and not question it: I don't ask myself how I got there, nor try to go through my palm with my other thumb, nor try to breathe with my nose and mouth shut, although I do some of these like every four hours or so, or when I remember.

Anyone here wants to share his / her experience?

Unfortunately, lucid dreaming is not something that you can learn in just a few days. It's definitely an awesome experience, just make sure you don't overdo it, because your body needs rest, too. When you are lucid dreaming, you are certainly not resting.

I know it requires a lot of time. I've just started with it so I didn't hope to get results that soon.

Luckd dreaming is really really hard. If you can do it, I respect you. The only thing harder than lucid dreaming is episodic dreaming--done intentionally that is

7 Name: Anonymous : 2018-02-06 14:59 ID:hk0/m6rm [Del]

Hi,
Just commenting to share two stories. First, I had a dream which, at the time, semed rather significant. Unfortunately, I didn't write it down, so now I don't remember it, nor the reason why I thought so.
Second, I had a really weird lucid dream, where I knew I was dreaming because I alternated between two rooms instantly multiple times, but couldn't wake up nor do anything else, except talk with my brother in the second room. Somewhat scary.

Two women had been having a friendly lunch when the subject turned to sex. “You know, John and I have been having some sexual problems”, Linda told her friend. “That’s amazing!” Mary replied, “So have Tom and I. We’re thinking of going to a sex therapist”, said Linda. “Oh, we could never do that! We’d be too embarrassed!”, responded Mary. “But after you go, will you please tell me how it went?”
Several weeks passed, and the two friends met for lunch again. “So how did the sex therapy work out, Linda?”, Mary asked. “Things couldn’t be better!” Linda exclaimed. “We began with a physical exam, and afterward the doctor said he was certain he could help us. He told us to stop at the grocery store on the way home and buy a bunch of grapes and a dozen donuts. He told us to sit on the floor nude, and toss the grapes and donuts at each other. Every grape that went into my vagina, John had to get it out with his tongue. Every donut that I ringed his penis with, I had to eat. Our sex life is wonderful, in fact it’s better than it’s ever been!”
With that endorsement Mary talked her husband into an appointment with the same sex therapist. After the physical exams were completed the doctor called Mary and Tom into his office. “I’m afraid there is nothing I can do for you,” he said. “But doctor,” Mary complained, “you did such good for Linda and John, surely you must have a suggestion for us! Please, please, can’t you give us some help? Any help at all?” “Well, OK,” the doctor answered. “On your way home, I want you to stop at the grocery store and buy a sack of apples and a box of Cheerios.”

Which Linux distributions do you recommend? (12)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2017-11-30 07:39 ID:6VI/iUsq [Del]

Hello,
Recently, I had to reformat my computer due to Windows Insider Builds ("if you don't update, your computer will stop working for no apparent reason. Oh, and you can't update because your Internet speed is really slow", said my computer in a more cryptic way). So I installed Debian, but I don't like their stable but old software model because I don't like old software (above all, I don't like to have old Orca versions), nor their unstable or testing models because I may break something. I am also a beginner in the Linux world.
So, based on this, which of the millions of distributions would you recommend? I think I may settle on Antergos (a friendlier Arch derivative, based on what I've heard). Any opinions?

3 Name: Anonymous : 2017-11-30 09:52 ID:6VI/iUsq [Del]

OK, thanks for your recomendation. I'll go step by step, as I prefer to get things done rather than fighting with a system first. So I'll go with Antergos first, and then upgrade to an almost pure (talking) Arch system.

4 Name: Anonymous : 2017-12-01 06:43 ID:VVug2Mbo [Del]

Any time. Let us know if you need more help!

5 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-14 19:28 ID:I5Mc0URI [Del]

Hi,
So I finally settled on Talking Arch, because I disliked Antergos (I can't recall why exactly).
But now I've got a somewhat irritating problem. My terminal window (the Virtual Console) doesn't want to scroll, and Shift + pgup and Shift + pgdn don't work.
Any ideas why?
Thanks!

6 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-17 13:41 ID:lK1Npav1 [Del]

I'm not sur since I don't use Arch I probably have something different. It could be something in the VC settings or the window manager settings. In the mean time if the console won't scroll down to show new input (as opposed to not scrolling up), you can usually enter terminal only session with ctrl+alt+[f1-f6]. Return to the default GUI session with ctrl+alt+f7

7 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-23 07:07 ID:ozfv5Emr [Del]

I have no GUI at the moment, no window applications, display manager or desktop environment. Just virtual consoles.

11 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-08 08:41 ID:34FzJXUk [Del]

I personally like the Arch Way (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=The_Arch_Way&redirect=no), and you will hardly find a better, and more consistent operating system that you can customise the way you like.

It needs to be said, however, that Arch is a bit tricky to run as a server, but it's definitely doable.

As a desktop, or a home server it certainly works.

I would not recommend Debian. While it is good and stable, it's ancient, its packages are really lagging behind, and 99% of the time, when you wish to install software, you need to add an external PPA. I do not find this acceptable in 2018.

Arch's community, package manager, not to mention its wiki is unmatched.

But isn't Debian rock solid stable but like really, really, really outdated?

A Virus Could be Responsible for Human Consciousness (1)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-08 09:05 ID:hkIIkU9I [Del]

As ridiculous as it may sound, this could be true. Read this article for further details. What do you think? I personally find this fascinating, especially because there are numerous theories about how the world we see is just a perception that our mind creates, through filters, such as turning an image upside down, etc. There are things that can be perceived differently by people, which suggests that our world, or rather, what we see of it, is personalised and nobody really knows the real appearance of it.

Hello,

Not sure who you mean, but in case it is us, the people who are running this service, any kind of generosity is greatly appreciated. It will go towards server costs.

As a thank you, we will have a donor list, so you can have your chosen nickname or just 'anonymous' be added to it, if you so choose.
