A folk expression for Sleep Paralysis: a sleep disorder that causes a person to gain consciousness while their body remains in REM atonia (pseudo paralysis).
During an episode a person will become fully awake and able to look around by moving their eyes. However, control of breathing, bodily movement and making sounds are completely inhibited, resulting in a possibly terrifying experience. An episode can last from a several seconds to a few minutes and is sometimes accompanied by vivid hallucinations.
The episode ends when the person falls back asleep peacefully, or the paralysis lifts. The latter often results in violent movement or convulsions along with a shout or scream.
While in this state a person is said to be "Riding with the witch"
It is most often encountered while sleeping in unfamiliar or relatively uncomfortable conditions. Most people will experience some form of this phenomena at least once in their lifetime.
Chris: Yo, did you have a nightmare last night?
Frank: Nah, I was just riding with the witch, sleep paralysis, ya know?
Chris: Damn son, you should probably get that checked out! You almost gave me a heart attack, shouting and flailing at 3AM!
Frank: yeah, that'll happen…
Proposition X, is a theoretical reference to an unnamed voter referendum that could someday appear on a ballot. Usually a complicated and sinister voter initiative that could only pass through heavy use of Trickery. In some states these are known as voter questions but the net result is always the same: a voter "approved" law that can be extremely difficult to reverse.
Senator Goldstealer: "Prop X is a wonderful initiative that will help all mankind by eliminating the complicated issue of free will. Imagine the peace of mind in knowing that you will never have to make another decision again. We will make the decisions for you and we will always be sure that every decision is THE BEST DECISION,"
Using a position of authority as a means to take advantage of a person or a people by gaining their confidence. Trickery is often used by politicians, police officers and other authority figures to gain support while unwittingly manipulating and oppressing those very same people who are subject to their control. Trickery often involves use of the phrase "Trust me, I'm a _______"
Police officer: "Your friends over there already told me that you did that thing, so why don't you just confess and make it easier for all of us, you can trust me, I'm a police officer"
Citizen: "Oh really, hmm… yeah, ok, I'm sorry, I did just do that thing"
Police officer: "GET ONTO THE GROUND WITH YOUR HANDS BEHIND YOUR HEAD! YOU'RE GOING TO JAIL FOR A LONG TIME BUCKO!!!"
Citizen: "OH NO! I should never have fallen for your police trickery! FML"
Congressman: "don't worry people, we've got this whole economy/budget situation under control… Trust me, I'm in congress. This stuff is far too complicated for a simpleton like you to understand. Now just vote for Prop X and everything will be fine"
