Mysteriousmind posted an interesting question about awakening and not knowing what day it was.

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I'll crawl out of a dream and not know some essential fact. I am just not able to "pull it up" as if it were on a computer screen. In this "quasi-dream" state, my brain will go into "fake it" mode and just supply a guess. Typically this happens with my age and the year. I'll awaken from a dream thinking what year is it? And I usually come up with something around 1988. And as you get older, birthdays carry alot less significance. So when someone asks you how old you are, you might think "23" when you are "31". Cause "31" doesn't really feel like much of anything.

So, given those conditions... How old are you? and what year is it?

If you are familiar with the state of consciousness I described, what facts are sometimes missing from your repetoire of knowledge?

Racial relations


Anyone know of a charity dedicated to "racial harmony"? NAACP comes to mind, but I was hoping for something a little more grassroots, preferably with a local chapter in San Diego.

If you'd like to know why I ask, check my journal. I'd appreciate any feedback you might have.

When I look at a magazine, the first thing I do is flip it over and start from the back. I've often wondered if I'm the only one who does that.

When reading a magazine, do you go from front to back, or back to front?
