“Lucid dreaming–becoming aware that you are dreaming while still dreaming–is possibly the most dangerous hobby,” says 24 year old John Cherkon who suffered two broken arms and a broken leg after a tragic mix-up between dreaming and reality.
Cherkton says his attempt to make the most of the, “dream” (which was actually reality) by attempting to fly to Vegas to Rob the Bellagio, was, “normal for a beginner.”
“People don’t understand to have lucid dreams you have to figure out if you are in a dream or reality. Sometimes you get it right, and sometimes you don’t… it’s the nature of the hobby. I had warned my wife to never, ever, EVER, leave movies playing when I am tired and groggy.
“Thank God it was an Oceans 11 dream and not Saving Private Ryan.” Said Cherkton who insisted that he is OK with it, saying,
“this is the life I have chosen. I am a lucid dreamer, and with all lucid dreamers, I accept that if my wife leaves Saving Private Ryan on, I may grab my rifle, and while screaming at the top of my lungs, charge my neighbors home as if it was Omaha Beach, fully convinced that I will save the world from Nazi rule by shooting him as many times as possible.”
“Lucid dreamers know what we are getting into. This hobby is not for the weak.” said Cherkton
