    The only dreams I have had that are unusual enough to relate were those as I finished college, passed the CPA exam, and began my life as an Internal Revenue Code slinger (e.g. a tax geek). I would have nightmares and argumenets in my sleep about the tax laws, and my wife can still recite some of the "Code" Sections I would recite. Sad, I know, but can you recite 368(a)(1)(B) in your sleep?

    In general, for purposes of parts I and II and this part, the term “reorganization” means— (B) the acquisition by one corporation, in exchange solely for all or a part of its voting stock (or in exchange solely for all or a part of the voting stock of a corporation which is in control of the acquiring corporation), of stock of another corporation if, immediately after the acquisition, the acquiring corporation has control of such other corporation (whether or not such acquiring corporation had control immediately before the acquisition);
    Or how about this, huh?

    In the case of a reorganization qualifying under paragraph (1)(B) or (1)(C) of subsection (a), if the stock exchanged for the stock or properties is stock of a corporation which is in control of the acquiring corporation, the term “a party to a reorganization” includes the corporation so controlling the acquiring corporation. In the case of a reorganization qualifying under paragraph (1)(A), (1)(B), or (1)(C), or (1)(G) of subsection (a) by reason of paragraph (2)(C) of subsection (a), the term “a party to a reorganization” includes the corporation controlling the corporation to which the acquired assets or stock are transferred. In the case of a reorganization qualifying under paragraph (1)(A) or (1)(G) of subsection (a) by reason of paragraph (2)(D) of that subsection, the term “a party to a reorganization” includes the controlling corporation referred to in such paragraph (2)(D). In the case of a reorganization qualifying under subsection (a)(1)(A) by reason of subsection (a)(2)(E), the term “party to a reorganization” includes the controlling corporation referred to in subsection (a)(2)(E).
    Exciting, eh?

    Yea, I have dreams of hopelessness too, when I can't fix a reverse triangular merger using Barbados subsidiaries interposed with Liechtensteinian inverted partnerships and tied-off pairs of GmbH's owned by Chinese trusts.

    Darn

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    My most stressful dreams are about tornadoes (yes, multiple) that are about to pass over. I am almost never in my own house, but rather in unfamiliar surroundings and also trying to protect others/explain the danger to them. I also have the occasional dream that people are surrounding the house about to break in at night. Recently, I had a dream that my husband was having an epileptic seizure, I woke up shaking from that one. (He doesn't have epilepsy, so I don't know the cause for that dream) Disturbing stuff.

    NONE of my firearms have EVER worked in my dreams, just like my legs won't move when I have to run, and I can't get up if I'm on the ground.

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    I used to have dreams like this fairly frequently, but it had been years since I had one.... up until last night anyway.... right after checking out this thread. Weird.

    In response to ATCtimmy and the fish butt question....What's the problem? At least it's watertight!

    It's kind of like how some people have a sudden and insatiable desire to talk about vampires after the Twilight series became popular, except zombies are much less gay and more likely to exist one day

    I used to always have dreams where I'd get into a fight and my arms would move in slow motion and none of my hits would do any damage whatsoever.

    Your poor wife.
    She is a Saint. She learned to let it run its course, otherwise I'd take up the challenge and keep going.
