So here's an interesting little factoid: Melatonin is a hormone found in animals, plants, and microbes and acts as a powerful sleep aid. I had heard that, when taken in high doses, it causes vivid, sometimes violent and upsetting dreams. These pills were in 10 mg doses, and generally, 50 mg increases REM sleep time. I opted for that.
Result: Here's a completely factual account of the weird dream I had on Melatonin that I wrote down minutes after waking up so none of the information would escape my memory:
My brothers, a friend, and I are eating pizza and laughing about how we just dined-and-dashed a restaurant. My friend, Steve, is chain-smoking cigarettes and drunkenly trying to fix his iPad. His "wife" then explains to me that this isn’t the first time this has happened, and holds up an old MacBook covered in cream cheese and jam and a sign that says "Out chuggin’ cream cheese" — Steve.' This happened. I dunno.
