Last night's dream:
My wife and I were in our basement, where there was a model of the floor plan of her work building right next to the dryer. I noticed red blinking lights in her model office, which meant someone had broken in and they were stealing proprietary secrets from the computers. I also noticed green blinking lights coming down the hallway which meant the cleaning crew was doing their rounds and would go into the office to clean it and the thieves breaking into the office would kill them.
So I called the company's security division to report what was going on. And found out that to be connected to the security people in the building I needed to contact, I had to solve math problems in order to get the number - and every time you got one wrong, the number would change and you would have to start over from the beginning.
So, then it became kind of like a movie - here's the shot of the cleaning crew wheeling their carts into another office, talking to each other - "Yes, I'm so proud of my daughter, she graduated near the top of her class!" - "How wonderful, congratulations." and other normal conversation as they are walking to their doom. Music that they can't hear starting to get ominous.
Here's the shot of the criminals, with drawn guns, trying to hack into the computers,
Here's a shot of the floor plan, with the lights blinking.
And back to me desperately trying to remember how to solve a quadratic equation (hey, it's been years), derivatives, and a bunch of other things having to start over from the very beginning again because I forgot to show my work turning to my wife and yelling; "This is the stupidest system I have ever encountered. Whoever came up with it needs to be fired!"
Which woke my wife up from a sound sleep. She promptly started shaking me; " Zyrs, honey it's okay."
And I, still asleep, ( I remember looking at my wife in the dream like she was crazy) said; "It's not okay! People are going to die because it's such a stupid system!"
Then I woke up and apologized. She spent the day teasing me about it - "Solve the Unified Field Theory, show your work." - all day.
