Why Do We Talk In Our Sleep? – Dear Blocko #16


Hey there! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko! This is the show where I answer your questions
that you have about your world and my world. Let’s get started with our first question! Jeremy asks
Dear blocko Why do we talk in our sleep? Well, obviously because you have something
to say! Is this thing on? Really, talking in your sleep is an often
harmless thing that can happen without a clear underlying cause. That said, sometimes talking in your sleep
can be caused by certain sleep disorders, like REM sleep behavior disorder or night
terrors. While different, either may cause you to yell
or talk in your sleep and can lead to physically lashing out. Certain medications, stress, and fevers may
also play a role. We’re not really certain whether or not
you’re acting out your dreams or if it even has anything to do with dreaming, but we do
know that it can happen during different parts of the sleep cycle. Talking in your sleep can also happen while
you’re sleep walking, so, to the casual onlooker, it might appear that you’re conscious. I wish my body just did yard work whenever
I was sleeping. Those pixel bushes never stop shedding! Next question! Shachar aks
#DearBlocko Why are some people double jointed? There are a variety of reasons that some people
are double jointed, which is kind of a misnomer since it more so just means exceptional flexibility
rather than actually having extra joints. One is that they may have shallower joints
than average, which could allow for a wider range of movement. They might also have particularly soft cartilage
or ligaments that are more elastic. When someone’s double-jointedness has to
do with their cartilage, it could be a warning sign of a severe condition like Ehlers-Danlos
syndrome, or EDS. That’s where collagen synthesis defects
can present as extreme flexibility. What’s more is that people who are double
jointed may be more likely to be anxious. Research has found a correlation of sorts
between the two. Some findings have even shown that patients
with certain anxiety disorders can be as much as 16 times more likely to have hypermobile
joints. Extremely interesting for sure. And now it’s time for questions about me and
my world! Emerald Rocks 4Eva
#Dearblocko Are there other worlds in your universe that
you can live on? Oh yeah! There are lots of planets. My animator is making new ones, all the time! He just recently made one that’s made entirely
of CDs from bands of the early 2000s. Kind of random! Another one is made entirely of cheese, but
the smelly kind, so honestly everyone just avoids it. Kaitlyn W asks
#Dear Blocko Are you ever gonna make a vlogging channel? What would you vlog? Uh… well, I have no idea how to vlog. Is this a vlog? I don’t know! Id probably just make videos of me hanging
out with friends, or ranking video game characters, or testing out this drink I made that turns
me into a mecha Blocko?… I don’t know. That doesn’t sound interesting. Maybe someday. So do you have any questions about your world
or my world? Let me know right now in the comment section
below and your question could be in a future Dear Blocko. Enjoyed this episode of Dear Blocko? Why don’t you check out the previous one
