I love those commercials! They remind me of things I dream if I eat a pepperoni pizza within an hour of turning in. Hey, it's cheap and legal...

Lincoln is just more universally known. That's all. You don't have to be Freud.

Abe is also a "symbol" of integrity among most people (and it doesn't matter if he was or wasn't a great man, I said he is a symbol. By now we should know reality and perception are two separate things). They even say in one of the commercials "Honest Abe."

The makers of the commercials are trying to create a sense of trust for the product. Furthermore, there is recognition. People recognize Lincoln. Washington would probably come in second place as far as widespread recognition and "honesty." Nixon ....

Nope. Never dreamed about Nixon. Not once.

"I think that I did in college but those were nightmares."

We used to watch Nixon on TV in my dorm and get h!gh. Ahh the 70s.

Speaking of Lincoln, The Onion had a headline that President Lincoln was getting sick of all the time travelers.

The beaver and the deepsea diver are other questions.

I rolled Easter eggs on Nixon's lawn. I think I was 5.

I am waiting for a Clinton commercial for Viagra or cigars.

Ahhh President William Jefferson Clinton. I don't think he needs the first item. Let's see, they say he did something wrong.

I did not necessarily say I was speaking of Mr. Clinton. ;)

Hey, good enough for Bob Dole...

I was going to make a joke about viagra and how he hurt his arm but since it is 2 days from Veterans Day and that it is a war injury I will refrain.

Thanks for your service Mr. Dole.

"Thanks for your service Mr. Dole"

Right you are Tom. Senator Dole is a funny and intelligent man.

I've never dreamed about either beavers or Lincoln specifically, but I've dreamed about reenacting several times in the last few weeks. I maybe have been away from home too long...

I actually have a reoccuring dream about reeanacting that keeps popping up once or twice a year it seems. It's the same scenario, but often in a different location. I'm back in my old unit from years ago (infantry) standing in ranks waiting for the battle to start... and waiting... and waiting... The doggone battle never seems to get off the ground. And then the dream shifts into something completely different or I wake up.

But, speaking of dreams, the weirdest dream I've ever had was once I dreamt I was struggling through a crowd of people and we were all in a massive office building that was lying lengthwise on the ground like a fallen column. The shocker was that the dream occured several days prior to 9/11! :shock: Fortunately, I've never had that dream again and I hope I never do.

"Close but no cigar for Monica,.."

I believe that some think Monica puts Clinton in the category of "Chubby-Chasers." :)

I had a similar dream years ago. I dreamt I was commanding a brigade of Continental Infantry marching up a road in the summer sun. The riflemen were out front a skirmishers and they'd just made contact with the British. My regiments were filing off the road from column into line. I turned to the drum major and asked, "Give us a tune for the lads." He saluted smartly with his mace and replied, "Fine, sir, How about something by Rick James." I woke up in a cold sweat.

A few weeks before 9/11 my mother had reoccurring dreams of her standing in the Window to the Worlds in one of the towers. Then the glass shattering in front of her and her falling out of it.

As a scientist I know of no mechanisms that can explain such precognitive dreams. However, as a person, I have had many dreams of situations and conversations that occurred months later. Yes, I know the psychologists theories behind deja vu, but I can also remember that several of those dreams were vivid enough to awaken me even though none of them involved the type of traumatic event as 9/11.

YOW! For some reason, I can't see the battle line moving in a quiet steady motion forward to the tune of "She's a very kinky girl!"

:shock:
