Question My Laser Themed Dream....Share Yours!

So last night I purchased my first Argon Laser Head before going to bed, and last night I had my first laser themed dream.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Isaac's Dream
I went to a university's auditorium to use my Argon Laser and was separating the lines and counting them and just enjoying my new laser. Some people stopped to look at it and I showed it to them. One guy was pretty interested, which was cool; I love showing off my laser stuff and when people are actually interested it makes my day.

For some reason I went to the bathroom. I don't remember the journey there, I was just there the next second and in my mind I knew I had gone there even though my dream didn't illustrate it. I washed my hands and was strolling out the door when I got really anxious! I had just left my Argon Laser going on a table surrounded by teenagers? Wha? So I quickly ran over to where I had left it but the only stuff still on the table were some miscellaneous ends and odds I had also had with me.

Someone stole my Laser

Rethinking to the faces of those near me, I figured there was really only one true suspect: the guy who was so interested. I quickly ran out of the auditorium and searched for him on the campus. Remembering him introducing himself I realized that I knew his name. So, I asked people if they knew him, and one person finally told me that he worked at a post office a few miles from campus.

So I got in my car and made my way very quickly to the post office. As I turned in to the post office there was a cop coming my way. I had been speeding somewhat so I slowed down immediately and waved as we passed each other. I kept an eye in my rearview until he turned out of the post office parking lot.

Breathing a sigh of relief I whipped into a parking spot and got out, ready to hunt down the man who stole my blessed Argon. I ran inside and almost ran into this redneck guy I know from work. He was late for a delivery though, so he couldn't help me find the guy. I realized then that this guy was probably on his route, so he wouldn't be here.

However, i continued my search. Turns out there was a "Bed, Bath and Beyond" in the same building as the post office, only it was just a window with Lady GaGa selling products from behind the counter. I was like "this isn't the post office" and whirled around to go to the other side of the large room where the post office entrance was.

The people inside asked me what I wanted soemwhat rudely, but when I inquired as to the location of the thief a kindly old man who seemed like he liked to talk about the weather a lot told me that he knew him and that the guy should be getting back from his route shortly.

I sprinted outside just in time to see him drive up. As he got out of his USPS truck I grabbed him and slammed him against the car demanding to know where he put my laser.

He laughed, saying "Sorry bro, I don't have it anymore..."
And then I woke up, and realized that my Argon Laser Head hadn't even been shipped yet, and that I still had a chance to keep such a thing from occurring.

Hope you all enjoyed my dream...I certainly did not haha. Tell me what laser related dreams YOU have had. I hope I am not crazy.....

Thanks,
Isaac

I thought this was kind of silly when I first saw it Issac, but I just had one so I guess I'll share...

I'm at my desk and I'm opening a package I ordered online. Seems like an import deal. Box is like a foot and a half by a foot, flat. Styrofoam in shrinkwrap in a paper box, black with artwork on it.

It's some kind of desktop art piece? It's just square metal tube rectangles, painted black, joined at different angle and they are of different heights. On top of these are little black metal boxes that look like little miniature labbys of different wavelengths and sizes. They are pointing in all different directions. Think cheap pen laser stuck in a lab box, but I see some exotic wavelengths, 473, 638 in addition to the standard colors 532 etc. The construction is pretty cheap, supports are kind of loose, but still pretty neat looking.

Also tried to park some toy cars on the desk, but that's not laser related

Yeah, I don't know either

I remember discussing laser dreams on laserchat

Someone dreamt of a dye laser pumped by an argon.


The only laser dream that I can remember was the one where I went to hawaii with my 473nm handheld and the climate made the crystals blow up.

I have had other laser dreams, but I forget them. They always involve the destruction of lasers.

I dreamt a long time ago about taking the green laser pointer dpss crystal (the small assembly) and breaking the crystal onto 2 (ND:Yvo4 and the KTP), and then pumping the ktp with the 808 from the green laser... On my dream I got something like the 445s but weaker. HA! so funny. I recall I thought, while dreaming
"Oh, this must be 404nm, because 808/2 = 404"

808 can't be frequency doubled, right? Anyways 404nm isn't blue.
It happened a few days later I disassembled my first working, green laser (dpss)... 1 or 2 Years ago...

The good ol' "Trees catching fire by a portable, water cooled, fully encased CO2 laser" dream is somehow common, though.

I had a dream about lasers when I first getting into them... before I understood where different wavelengths come from, etc. The gist of the dream was that I was visiting a friend that lives near the coast and there was to be a fire after dark for everyone to sit around, but there wasn't any wood, so I offered to gather some. I went into what looked like a cedar chest where you would store clothing and pulled out a small black cylinder with a dial on it. I found a grove of oak trees adjacent to the the house and pressed the power button on what I realize is a handheld laser. The dial selects the color of the beam and basically just started lopping off 4 to 6 inch thick branches with the beam like a hot knife through butter. I continue to carve up what was needed with this little gem (apparently not cutting all sorts of other things in the process... it's a dream, remember) and then gather up the wood. That's all I remember.

I haven't had a laser dream since. Odd.
