I read a USENET post yesterday where someone related a story about an American martial artist going to China for a symposium on his art. His hosts told him that they were not used to having Americans attend, but they would house him with the other non-Chinese attendees so he would feel more comfortable.
So he ended up in a dorm full of North Koreans. Ouch
Anyway, I dreamed that situation, except that everyone was this weird amalgam of Pokemon and DragonballZ looking animated types. Which is very weird, because I've never watched a whole episode of either Pokemon or DragonballZ, and didn't like what I did see.
I didn't make the link between the scenario of the dream and the USENET article I read until only a few hours ago.
