    Things to Run Away From Really Fast

    I'm framing a wall; it's laying down on the plywood floor. I have a cordless air nailer in my hand, and I'm adjusting the studs for the wall and nailing them in place. It's repetitive work, meditative.

    A high-pitched laugh echoes through the half-framed house. The outside walls are up, casting long shadows in the evening sunlight. It's fading, getting darker.

    I stand up slowly and turn around. Without taking my eyes from the floor, I lift up the air nailer and fire - one, two, three precise shots into the darkness.

    The laughter ceases.

    Scare Factor: 2/10

    Note: the previous "Air Nailer" dream was #89.

      Can you actually do that with those? I thought there was some kind of safety mechanism.

      I think you just need to disengage the safety with your other hand IRL, at least with the ones that are plugged into a compressor. My dad (who I work for) has been deliberately firing nails into the walls every other week, just to prove how dangerous it is.

      It'd be cool to rob a bank with one of those.
