Any time there's a flat screen computer kiosk at a store (i.e. the computers at Borders customers can use to search the store), I always start pressing buttons on the screen with my finger and get annoyed that it doesn't do anything. Of course, I fail to notice the keyboard and trackball right in front of me and thus is not a touch screen. I once went to three different computers at Borders and got really pissed off that none of them worked before I realized what I was doing. Once I realized what I had done, I stood and stared at the kiosk for a couple minutes thinking about how interesting it was that I just naturally assumed it was a touch screen and how user interfaces have evolved to the point that it's my natural assumption.

Trying to use a snack machine with a 'Use Correct Change' sign on it. Trust them signs...

I mean, in the past I've had no real problem with these machines, and I've gotten change with absolutley no problem-probably about the third time I disobey the sign, it swallows £1 for a 40 pence sweet... [killness]Damn those machines...[/killness]

Even worse is when the vending machines consistently steal your change, and sometimes don't even give you a drink. Needless to say, I avoid those now, but still, :x.
The new Pepsi machines seem to have a design flaw; if you don't shove the coin in with a decent amount of force, it gets stuck.

For that matter, why do the machines only take change? It's 2008. I should be able to just hold my phone up to it and use Bluetooth to have the payment added to my bill. But then again, if I could, I'd have such a massive bill... <_<

Where I worked, we had magnetic keys which we loaded money onto in order to use the machines.

I once let my sister in law dye my hair blue. [stupid] melannen [/stupid]

in order to do that, she had to first cut and bleach my hair and then she had to die it blue. About a week later my hair washed out to this hideous snot green. [everyone] we toldja so [/laughs]

My student ID has a magstripe that I can load money onto, but the places I can use it are steadily dwindling (though we're about to get a dining hall to go with our very first dorm, so it will probably be useful there) And my freshman year, they let us link the card to a WellsFargo checking account, but by the next semester that was completely useless.
As it stands, money on the card can only be used at the on campus bookstore, one register at the campus cafe, and the printing center (which only accepts money on the cards)

So the night before last I went to sleep, then woke up about an hour or two later, convinced that the stalactites hanging fromt he ceiling were going to fall on my face. My solution? I put a chair next to my bed and attempted to go back to sleep with my upper body on the bed and the rest of me in the chair. This didn't work, and after a few more unsuccessful ideas I went back to the usual standby or just putting a blanket over my head and dealing with it.

Fast forward to the morning, and I wake up. Everything is as it should be, except... wait, why is that chair sitting next to my bed? ...Oh. Right.

I made the mistake of reading entirely through this thread while slightly sleep deprived and listening to the Doors. After about half an hour, I wasn't really able to distinguish between "What if?" and "Is"

I then proceeded to climb up onto the walls of the hall, with one foot braced on either wall. I realized that I must be standing over something, and that it was most likely a water buffalo. A few moments later, I realized that I wasn't high enough for a water buffalo to pass underneath, nor could I get high enough with the low ceiling, so I ducked back into my room.

Afterward, I started a psychic war with the demon residing in my cell phone.

The funny thing is that part of my mind knew that my actions didn't really make sense, but that part was amused enough to let it continue.

I draw at school a lot. Also, since my dumb, not-well-funded computers don't have anything besides word and paint on them, I play with paint after assignments. Anyhow, I draw. I was drawing in class recently, and I attemted to make a box around a part of the picture and move it, only failing and drawing a line through my picture.

I no longer allow myself to use myspace first thing in the morning. I woke up one time and, before doing anything else, jumped onto the computer and asked a friend of mine to marry me on myspace. I had a fun time a few hours later thinking up an excuse for having done so.

Also, I had a fevered hallucination once that I was a tiger and ripped up the blankets on my bed. For nearly two hours I lay in my room feeling guilty that I had destroyed my blankets. Fevers suck.

Sometimes when I do something stupid, my first thought is, "Oh, that's okay. I'll just load my game and-- aw, crap."

I think that everyone who has used eclipse will agree with me on this one. after using eclipse for extended periods of time you find yourself at least attempting to hit ctrl+s and look for errors.

also, just yesterday I spent about 5 hours playing the same game and so when I attempted to put my computer to other use, I kept trying to map the game commands to the actions I was trying to take.

I call this "late night, drunken cooking syndrome". One time I got home at 3:30am and decided that I'd warm up the chicken curry from supper. It was still in a saucepan so I figured I'd just put it on the hob. A few minutes later I realized that I still had a half bottle of beer in my hand....people cook with beer right? so I added that to the mix and yet it was still missing something, so in a flash of genius I emptied a tin of tuna into the pot and because it seemed to have too much liquid in it, put some bread in to soak some of that up.

I don't know if there's a name for what I ended up with, but I sincerely hope that there isn't. Tasted great at the time though...

Okay, has anyone else here ever played an old adventuring game "Azrael's Tear"? It has a nifty feature where you can click on almost any random object and scan it for information.....a little like Metroid Prime, but covers like 90% of the environment, including just "Hmm, I wonder what this wall is made out of?" Anyway, occasionally I'll have spurts where I see some random object that catches my attention (an advertisement, a tree, an odd structure in a building) and I'll want to scan it for information....or click it for the link to its article in wikipedia. I then get incredibly frustrated when I can't figure out where my mouse cursor went....

I've also done the macro-thing, where you play a game for a while, and then try to do the button-press in real life. After playing too much FFXI, I've had spurts of trying to take screenshots IRL of pretty sunsets, random cool objects, etc. I also occasionally, after a puzzle-like game, have the thing of my brain constantly working in that sort of puzzle...be it tetris and fitting random objects into the right shape, or looking for destructable points in the environment, or whatever.

Oh, and after beating Metroid Prime 3 on Hyper Mode difficulty (the last boss took friggin' AGES, putting me very much in that game's mentality), I remember being very confused at the fact that, contrary to my expectations, my right arm did NOT, in fact, almost constantly spew forth streams of blue energy (the Wiimote setup contributed heavily to this, what with the added immersion in the game).
Dear xkcd,

the vending machine posts at the top made me remember this.
it's late at night and me and a friend want a soda, but only have enough for one. we agreed on root beer and pressed the button for a long time. only one soda came out.
i tried similar things when i was younger too.
i tried pushing two buttons at once.
or on candy machines (the give-a-quarter-turn-the twisty-thingy kind) i've frequently tried turning it very slowly so that the slider thingy that releases the candy would stick, giving me alot, or atleast more, candy.

I was, for awhile, convinced my ex had written a biography, because I'd dreamed it. To the point where I looked for it in a shop on a sort of 'oo I wonder how much it is' moment as I walked past. It took about a month for me to actually realize it was completely in my dreams.

Then there's the 'why couldn't I see him on my radar' moment after I played Counter Strike Source too much and went into college.

A few years ago I was walking to my Nan's, when i had an epithany. Birds don't actually glide in the air, they bounce off the ground, get to such a great height, and fall. Rinse and repeat. But they do this so fast it's hard to see with the naked eye.
But how to account for the forward direction? They fall at such an angle that they bounce forward a little each time.
I actually started trying to figure out the path they took with my arms while walking down the street.

Last week I woke up in the middle of the night with a godawful stomach ache and nausea. I didn't have to take a dump and I couldn't make myself throw up, so it was me doubled over without relief in the bathroom for half an hour, dead convinced that I was pregnant. Somehow it escaped me that my ailments were more likely caused by the fact that I over ate at dinner, and it was of fairly heavy, greasy food.

I woke up fine in the morning, though I did have fun announcing to my SO later on, "So last night, I ended up in the bathroom thinking I was pregnant..."

I have cats at home. One of the cats pushed my bedroom door open, waking me up. When I looked to see what was making the noise, I completely missed the fact that my friend Catherine was coming in from the hallway and "saw" a shadowy figure walking across the doorway toward the bathroom. I jump up, grab the mag-light next to my bed (for just such an occasion, actually) and start shouting at the guy. My SO wakes up, very confused at why I'm shouting at nothing. At some point I realize that I was just seeing things, check the whole apartment out and go back to bed.

I'll have dreams that I think are real all the time. At the moment, I'm trying to figure out where I left my black acoustic guitar. The other night, I dreamed that I found said guitar in my great-grandmother's house while I was visiting her. When I woke up, I was fully convinced for about five minutes that it had actually happened, and that I needed to go get it. I failed to take into account the facts that: 1. The house in my dream was MY old house, and my great-grandmother had never lived there. 2. Said house is about five hours away from where I live now, and I haven't been there in years. 3. My great-grandmother died two years ago. It was an odd feeling.

Oh, and I almost cut all my hair off with those mini-scissors that come in nail kits. I'm not sure why I thought this was a good idea, but it seemed appealing at the time.

I don't confuse my phone tone with my alarm clock, but it's happened a couple of times now that if I'm not at home and hear a phone ring that has the same tone as my home phone, I get the unsettling feeling that I'm asleep and I need to wake up. It's happened at the airport and at shopping centres. I think I must have a fairly common brand of phone?

And I usually have crazy-normal dreams, stuff that is so utterly mundane that it is hard to tell if it was a dream or a memory the next morning, so I know it isn't unusual for me to be dreaming about something stupid like trying to decide between different brands of cereal.

I think this whole thing is caused by my sleep-in often being interrupted by the phone ringing. Damned telemarketers most of the time.

Been there, done that.

Also, sometimes when I'm semi-awake in the morning, I'll realize I need to see if it's time to wake up, and I'll dream that I'm checking my watch. Inevitably it'll say it's early, so I'll go back to sleep...

Most of mine happened when I was younger. For instance, I was about 10...I think...anyway, so I get up to go to the bathroom. Problem is, I'm three-quarters asleep and the waste basket reminds me of the toilet. So I take a piss in it. In my defense, it was a white waste basket. Another time I called my black/african-american teacher mom, despite coming from a purely Caucasian family. Another time I had a dream that my penis hulked out and became this massive thing about as thick as a baseball bat and just as long. Next morning I wake up and wonder what the hell happened to my dick. Needless to say, I realized it was a dream. Finally, I've woken up and thought that I was someone completely different. Not sure who, I just knew that I was in the wrong body.

A couple of years back I was staying at my Aunt and Uncles house for a weekend. Sunday afternoon I was really tired, so I crashed for a nap. When I woke up, the clock said 7:00, and for some reason my half asleep brain interpreted this as 7:00am, so I wandered into the kitchen (not realising it was dark, or that I was already dressed) and starting making myself breakfast. Soon after, my Aunt wandered in to start cooking dinner, and asked my what I was doing. Thankfully, her laughter at my reply was enough to wake me up the rest of the way and bring me to my senses. Talk about embarrassing...

It was mostly panic - the smell was all over the apartment (and it lasted for a day, too!).
I once had a hard boiled egg in the fridge and decided to heat it up in the microwave. Not my most brilliant moment.

When DiRT came out for the PC, I played it almost all day for a good week or two. My mom and I went to best buy or something and when we were going around a turn, I looked up to see how sharp the turn was in my mini map so I'd know how fast to go...even though I wasn't driving.

Dude, yeah, you just hold up the thing that holds the camera* and press the big PrtScn button on the top.

*the camera that goes around your FFXI character, i mean. the camera-holder itself is also called a camera; i know how confusing that is more than you ever will.

I've had a lot of interesting things happen due to my occasionally strange sleep patterns.

One time, during finals, I woke up realizing I was late for a test. I dashed out of the door and rode down the street as fast as I could (bicycle, of course). I remember thinking, "Isn't it strange that the sun hasn't come up yet?" I got to the school, and the front doors were locked. I noticed a janitor inside, so I pounded on the door. He let me in, and I thanked him. "What are you here for?" he asked. Out of breath, I told him I had a final to take. After he asked if I was sure I had the right time, I finally realized I must have been confused about something... but I still couldn't tell what. I rode home, still convinced something strange was going on. Upon opening my front door, I realized I must have gotten confused about how much time passed during a nap I had taken. I checked the time to confirm, and indeed the clock said "PM" not "AM."

Now here's the funny part: I asked myself, "Wait, I thought it was Tuesday. Why does this say Monday?" :D
Goodnight, g♥♥dnight! There's something magnificent about good night with two disemboweled hearts in it, or at least it seems that way when you're so happy.
