My recent fever-induced hallucinations have me thinking on the subject of dreams.  In my normal healthy state I have dreams that include the usual stereotypes:
- Being able to fly
- Arriving at highschool to find that (a) I have forgotten to put on clothes or (b) there is a final examination in a course that I have forgotten to attend all year.

There's another genre that comes up often, and I'm curious if other people dream the same way.  I will often discover and explore previously unknown (and fantastic in the light of day) features of familiar places or objects.  Sometimes it is the previously unnoticed door in my house that leads into a warren of new rooms.  This afternoon it was the additional shift lever in my Land Rover that allowed for massive transmission reconfiguration.  Waking up usually comes with a feeling of disappointment, as the world that I actually live in isn't quite that grand.

Is this a common thing, or is it just an engineering affliction?

I have one of those levers on my S3. Only "massive reconfiguration" really means a horrible gnashing of gears and then it falls off. Perhaps not a happy dream ending...

I have a SIIA 109 with Rover axles and free-wheeling hubs on the front. By shifting into low-range first and dropping the clutch I can snap the half-shafts from the comfort and privacy of the cab.

It's really sad that more modern vehicles don't come with built-in self-destruct mechanisms.

Interestingly, in dream-space I often convince myself that I have an additional diesel 109 for use as a donor vehicle. I have no idea where that comes from. If nothing else, I have nowhere to park it.
