Re: Sleep-time holodeck experiences

My father narrowly escaped being in two mass shootings. Then I was in one. There were at least two shooters. I stopped them, but got shot in the abdomen multiple times. Not a restful night.

Re: Sleep-time holodeck experiences

Had the same dream a few times last night. I somehow was buying like 8-12 empty lots in Minneapolis, for something ridiculous like $100k. I was going crazy cause it was such a great deal, then I had to raise money, then the price changed to $69k.

I wish there was a way to get alerts for sales I am interested in. Steam sends me emails, but they're spotty. I'm more interested in getting Voodoo Vince for Xbox, but I'm too busy right now to play. Would like to just have an alert on my phone if it is on sale, and buy it then.
