  • Speaker: Confessions of an Uber Driver…,

    Wrt Uber's low pricing, I was wondering, with them being an American Co, do they expect the drivers to be picking up tips with each trip ?

    Thanks for your erudite and measured posts.

    And thanks for your follow-up explaining Yoruba. I did a cursory search and only encountered a "Language of South-West Nigeria" which I mistakenly thought was well off ...

    Playing Whack-a-mole by unfairly penalising a few % of uber drivers that they could catch, is hardly going to solve the problem. They need to prosecute (or threaten to prosecute) Uber for encouraging illegal acts.

    And the support act, Telling Tales, were great too. Loved Tracey Collins Piano Accordian, Kim's counterpoint violining, and Stephanie Crawford's sublime vocals. Well done Andrew, you got a great group together.

    ... had nested this two levels deep.

    I too have had a dream in which I realised I was dreaming, and woke up. I then started going about my day, but weird things started happening, and I realised I was still dreaming, and then actually woke up for real.

  • Hard News: Three Dreams,

    I too have had recurring flying dreams. As a teenager I had a series of falling nightmares that would wake me with my heart pounding in my chest, that got more terrifying, and more numerous, until one day, after falling off the Harbour Bridge, just before hitting the water, within my dream, I thought, "This must be a dream". I had one further such dream, and as I fell off the roof of the garage, I thought "No worries - this is just a dream", and woke up calm and relaxed.

    Didn't have falling dreams again for many years. But when they did restart, I found I could control my fall, and then turn it into flying. In later dreams I didn't need a fall to get started, if I went about it carefully, I could gently take off from the ground. The weird thing is that within my dream I feel like I have to concentrate on my flying, because if I don't do it just right, I'll fall. But in actual fact, I think I am trying very hard to not think "this is a dream" because if I do I wake up and I'd rather continue flying.

    I used to have another recurring nightmarish ending to dreams, by being swept off a beach by a ginormous wave. Haven't had that one for decades now (as far as I can remember).
