  • Had a crazy dream last night about the end of the world. There was a giant tidal wave coming towards us, with 3 or 4 downed airliners in it. And I was driving towards it as fast as I could in this pickup truck filled with explosives (not sure what we were gonna do, but apparently we had a plan). Anyway, there was a guy in the bed of my truck on a 4-wheeler trying to start it with a pull cord like a lawn mower. That was the most vivid scene, the rest of it is kinda muddled, although I do recall a scene in a kitchen next to a guy recovering from the wave hitting. Everything was wet.
