Why do we feel safer under a blanket at night? It's not like a murderer is going to come into your room at night and be like "Ahhhhhhhhhh I'm going to chop your... Oh wait, he's under a blanket, fuck!"

Well every time a murderer bursts into my room I start to hum quietly to myself and sit still, without ever looking at who is there even if they start saying something. I just wait silently. That usually just mind fucks them enough so that they leave. Probably because if they'd kill me like that then they'd be haunted forever at how calm I was and would wonder what was in my head.............whoa I'm baked but after rereading this it sounds like a good idea. I hope I remember if it would ever happen.

The Boogie man has yet to challenge me and my blanket shield...
But maybe it's a 'he's more scared of you, than you are of him' type thing....

 
 
Wed, 08/10/2011 - 7:03pm

Niggas, please. I'll break this shit down for you. It's a psychological thing. As children, we watch television and hear stories about the boogeyman or whatever and learn, in one way or another, by seeing it or being taught by a parent or sibling, to hide under the covers, keep feet from dangling, don't look under the bed, etc. to escape whatever.

But as we grow older and mature, we stop acting afraid and childish. For instance, if when you were younger and you thought the boogeyman was under your bed, you would run and jump onto your bed so he couldn't grab you. Obviously you don't still do that.

But even though our mind and body matures, we still have the memories of how we acted as children and what it meant to do those things to keep you from danger. So if we hide under the covers, then that puts our mind at ease. Telling us everything will be ok.

AND everything will be OK, nigga! The boogeyman ain't gonna get you, you just trippin!

koshka Says:

that's interesting. I've never thought of that. perhaps it is evolutionary. I mean obviously we use it for warmth but then I can't sleep unless it's covering me, at least a little bit, even when it isn't cold... like I just need it for comfort. I wonder when humans started using blankets/a covering to sleep. maybe like back in the early human times, we started doing it because we didn't have clothes and we needed to be warm and also protected. wow I'm rambling

I always put my feet under my blanket to make sure the monster at the foot of my bed doesnt chomp my feet off :)

 
 
Thu, 08/11/2011 - 4:28pm

I just laughed at the word chomp for a good 5 minutes ahhh :D

Dude I was just pondering this last night! Like koshka said, I think it's probably an evolutionary thing.

ThaBraze Says:

Well if you are under your blanket it's harder to see when it's dark. It just kind of blends in and is easy to miss as where a body isn't like that. But if he's in your room, he's going to see you and hear every breath you take.

It was on Robot Chicken but I'm not sure if he stole it

 
 
Thu, 08/11/2011 - 5:33pm

yeah, i thought it was robot chicken.
& why people downvoted me for point that out? i dont know, or care. lol
just an observation, calm down.

 
 
Thu, 08/11/2011 - 6:58pm

Is it really a robot chicken episode? That's awesome haha I didn't steal it though.

 
 
Thu, 08/11/2011 - 2:35pm

man, highdea users are so inconsistent in their upvoting/downvoting of comments that point out if a highdea is stolen. One minute everyone's like "BUZZKILL" and the next everyone is dissing the OP.

but you know what? I dont give a fuck! Its just an observation!

 
 
Thu, 08/11/2011 - 8:29pm

Actually I didn't. I was laying in bed and thought of it to be quite honest. Don't just accuse me of it.
