The worst thing I ever did was knock down a pram with our newborn son swaddled in it, who tumbled out, fortunately unhurt. I was having a dream that there was an evil entity in the pram. Really scary!

    It could be BS, but I've heard of this before.

    In the early 1900s there was a detective who was asked to solve a murder case. But he ended up turning himself in to the police after he realized that he had murdered the man while sleepwalking and was investigating his own crime.

    I doubt if this is BS. I've experienced this phenomena vividly. The article is very detailed about the story, the 999 call. The couple's daughters testified that he has a history of sleepwalking. The couple normally slept separately except when traveling in their motorhome.

    I've experienced it second-hand (so to speak), so I'm not so quick to jump and say it's BS.

    Might be legit... will need to be investigated carefully, but it would be hard to prove anything decisively one way or the other. Bet he does time.

    I've never hurt anyone while I was dreaming, but I have hurt several people who startled me while I was asleep...and who should have known better.

    Waking up in the recovery room after surgery was bad too... I forgot to tell them I had some PTSD and they should be careful as I regained consciousness.

    Sounds like alien visitation to me. Are you one of those guys I've seen on "The UFO Files"?

    I sink ze good doctare vould tell us he vaz simply dreaming vat he truely dezired. (pardon the horrible einstein impression.)

    Hell, day dreaming seems to be a pretty useable excuse. I doubt he'll ever see a cell. Only a minimum security mental hospital.

    -Guy goes to his friend "hey man, I've been having a lot of Freudian Slips lately. Just yesterday I asked the ticket booth employee; I'd like 1 picket to Tittsburg." His buddy answers "Wow man, I've been having the same problem, this morning at breakfast, instead of asking my wife to pass the butter, I said; YOU RUINED MY LIFE YOU STUPID B****!"

    GySgt tried to break my finger once when he was asleep. He thought I was choking him. Come to think of it, I'm not sure why the gun's on his side of the bed....
