Stressmonkey called me out on another thread where the OP hit his 40th birthday.

I guess I am f'cking weird because two things (aside from a lot of other sh!t) that I want/look forward to that others don't.

1. I wish I was shorter. - In my opinion shorter guys appear much bigger than taller guys and while I am not tall by any means 5'8" I still would have liked to been 5'2" or so.
2. I look forward to my birthdays. - In my opinion (well it is fact) getting older is inevitable, but regardless I always looked forward to my birthdays, if it was my 30th, my 40th, my 50th I always looked forward to them. I am now looking forward to my 60th.


Any of you have anything weird about yourself that is out of the norm?

Not really weird as much as it is surprising, but I have an advanced degree in Mathematics. People always look at me strange when I tell them that. When I meet other parents at my kids' sports games, most people there think I am a laborer of some kind because I'm big, sweaty/dirty (go directly from working out), and p much wear only wife-beaters/under armour (since I come directly from the gym as I said).

I didn't call you out. I was just making a joke! :D


People tell me I'm weird all the time because I could not have less interest in sports. I do like MMA though.

when meeting people I frequently am told "you don't look like an Earl" (that's my first name) not sure if I should take that as a compliment LOL but I always thought it was a weird thing to hear

I agree about the looking forward to birthday thing. Not the shorter thing though. lol I wish I was 1/2" taller so I'd be an even 6'.

Yeah, I am 5-10 and a half. Wish I was about 6-1 or 6-2, so it would appear like I had somewhat of a torso. I swear I go from shoulders to waist. Nothing in between.

I spend just about all day every day in my 600 sf apartment.

My office is set up in my bedroom so I spend at least 16 hours every day in that small space between sleep and work.

I would be a perfect candidate for solitary confinement.

I go to the gym or walmart, thats my major entertainment. Maybe 1 hour per day.

I worked with a guy for 3 years and all the while he thought I was Italian.

When he retired, he told me, going to miss my Italian friend and I said "Who me?" He said of course you. I said I am not Italian...funny as hell that day.

Any of you have anything weird about yourself that is out of the norm?


But who would reach the stuff on the top shelves???? ;)



Not sure of many actions that are weird about me... only thing that comes to mind is that I will not ever get into an unmade bed to go to sleep. The bed has to be made and covers perfect on it before I will turn the covers down.


Appearance is a different story... I am pigeon-toe'd and have a crooked back and one eye that is slightly wider than the other ;) I am just a hot mess! LOL!

I would have to say the weirdest thing about me is I rarely talk/engage in conversation. I'm very quiet, almost too quiet.

I'm not into girly girl things.

I hate going to malls, shopping, spa days, getting nails done, etc...

Instead of going to hair salons, I go to the barber instead. We talk shop, sports, hunting, fishing and women...:D

It was a manual transmission car) so the examiner points at a really tight spot and says "I should fail you, but if you can park in that spot, you pass". I did and got my license.

Ever since I was a boy I've been attracted to women with wonky eyes

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-himFRQSsPzY/TXVQL9lwEPI/AAAAAAAAAY4/zgx-4WfUsS0/s1600/crazy+eyes.jpg


Umm...that's a dude bruh....


I have one testicle that sits lower than the other.

My Chinese name is Won hung lo

Mine is Lo Wang.



I would be a perfect candidate for solitary confinement.

Same here -- I almost never crave social contact with another human being.


I would have to say the weirdest thing about me is I rarely talk/engage in conversation. I'm very quiet, almost too quiet.


^^ This describes me well. I've had people on forums tell me that I would be interesting to meet IRL -- but nothing could be further from the truth....lol. I am a terrible conversationalist, and I don't talk much. I'm the guy at parties constantly looking at the clock so that I can leave at the earliest socially acceptable time.



I do this^^:)

If I go to a store instead of looking for the closest parking space to the store, I park as far away as I can and walk...

This also describes me well. My gf always gets pissed when I don't park in the closest possible place to the entrance of the store/movie theater/whatever. Even if we only have to walk an extra 10 feet. I don't understand it.

I have pet names for my pets;

Titan is "tubba ty"
Malachi is "Bubba dubs"
Leto is "Booboos"
and Deja (the talkative one), we call her Meg when we tell her to shut up.

I usually either speak to them with "baby talk" or "monster talk." I do not have conversations with them though, except for Titan, he's the only one that understands me.




I also play Godzilla with them using my remote helicopter. Titan snatched the last one out of the sky and ran off with it.

I spent the first 6 months of my life in full length casts in an effort (by doctors) to correct being pigeon toed at birth (aren't all babies??). Didn't work. I corrected it myself over time, somehow.

I have gotten better over the years with it. But sometimes if I am not paying attention and just standing around it is very noticeable :D

I kept a countdown on my desk at work, back when I was a Chemist, but wouldn't tell anybody what I was counting down. I started it around 200 days and often made a spectacle each day when I would take a day off. The entire office somehow became obsessed with it. Rumor flew and speculation was rampant. Was it a new job? was I getting married? Was I getting a dog? Everyone (mostly women) would ask what I was counting down too and all I would say is that it would change my life as I knew it and it was "big." I said I would announce the news when I got to zero. About 15 people (again, mostly women) were around my desk that morning when I got to work on 12/2/1999 and they were all eager to hear the big news.

So I solemnly took down the last number and announced;
"I'm in love with Britney Spears. Today is her birthday and she is 18. I can now legally lust after her in public."

For some reason I seemed to be less popular with the feminists at work from then on... go figure.

Our cats actually have two very distinct voices that I do voice overs for. The male sounds like a fat Louisiana chef in basso profundo. The female sounds like a drunk barfly with a high-pitched voice. They actually sing Christmas carols and argue over the lyrics. Sometimes the male gets stuck on the moon, and the female fires howitzers at cars in the traffic circle shouting, "Ka-BOOM" in her gravelly alto whine.

Not really weird as much as it is surprising, but I have an advanced degree in Mathematics.
I have an advanced degree in sexual selection. Really. If I tell people this, they either think I am weird or making a lame come-on. I lived for 5 years by myself in a tent in a remote mountain forest for my research (though there were other people around for 1 year of that). Pre-cellphone era too. God's honest truth. I do pretty well without human contact.



LOL I am the queen of parallel parking. When I was a teenager taking my driving exam I botched a start from a hill (stalled the engine several times. It was a manual transmission car) so the examiner points at a really tight spot and says "I should fail you, but if you can park in that spot, you pass". I did and got my license.
When I got my license all I had to do was drive around the block and park in the parking lot - no parallel parking required. My brother got his license in a different town that didn't even have a stop light. He had to drive down the street, turn around, and come back. Hawaiian style!

What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct?

I watch documentaries about surgery on TV without any problem whatsoever, but I have fainted a couple of times for eye related stuff. Basically the way some people faint with blood, I faint with eyes.

I read Quantum Physics books for fun.

I have the worst memory in the world. I have repeatedly forgotten my phone number, my street number, and my ATM code to name a few. I have forgotten my Kindle in the gym twice. I do not remember people's names or faces.

I pee in the shower, so sue me.

I HATE places full of sick people like the ER, the doctor's office, etc. I actually feel my skin crawl. On the other hand I can't care less about dirty objects or places (just so we are clear I don't have OCD)

I hate children. I can't even be in the same room with one without feeling my skin crawl.

I survived a terrorist attack.

I don't have a middle name.

Can not sleep with the window closed no matter what season it is.
All tins must face label out in the cupboards.
I can not cook a meal and leave any dishes until after eating.
I pick my nose very often.

I speak to my child with a pure raw geordie accent. But in reality I speak like a Southerner.

When younger, I had an imaginary friend. For many years. I have no idea where he went.

Oh and finally. I drink over 20 cups of tea EVERY single day. No excuses.

I have a pet rock I've been hauling around with me since I was 4. Linus has his security blanket; I have my rock. It came with us from New York to Hawai'i when I was 5, to New Jersey for college, back to Hawai'i for grad school (yes, I had it up in my tent), and now to California. I like to call it my dinosaur egg because of its shape and texture, though I'm pretty sure it's not.

I have to sleep with a fan on year round.
I sleep nude (not because I like to) but because I can't stand the feeling of clothes brushing against my skin.
I'm addicted to word search puzzles.
When I use plates at the gym, the numbers have to all face inward.
Never taken a pain killer because I have such a high tolerance for pain.

Weird stuff about myself?

When I look at a movie title, I count all the letters in it. I also count the number of letters in the stars' names. OCD is on full display here, yet I only do this for movies and nothing else.

In the summertime when it's hot and I'm alone, I sit at the computer and write buck nekkid. It helps me think better.

The crossword is the first thing I do in the morning paper, even before I read the Sports section.

Hate eggplant. My skin crawls even reading the word and writing it makes me want to heave. I don't know why.

I like snakes.
I write upside down and backwards when I feel like it. I'm also ambidextrous although I was born left-handed.

I'm self-taught in Japanese. Means I'm good at listening, sucky at grammar, but somehow my wife understands me.

wow really? where?
oh and I have had bison and that ostrich kinda looking bird...

We had a horse butcher shop in my town when I grew up. Pretty common actually. Taste like lean steak.


I used to eat raw ground beef all the time. Still have a craving for it everytime I cook it.

Wondering if it's why I became a geek who likes vampire movies.

Ok...now for some of the weirder things about me:

I hate the feeling of paper towels. It really creeps me out to touch a paper towel unless my hands are wet. I also hate chalk and chalkboards. Writing on a chalkboard really makes me uncomfortable. I hate chalk erasers too. Wet marker boards are OK though.

I have weird issues regarding symmetry of sensory experience. If I dart my eyes from one location to another, and something moves across my visual field in one eye (a color, or beam of light), then I have to make it go across the visual field of my other eye in the exact same way. And it has to go across the same number of times too.

Breathing: If I have a bodypart out in front of my body (usually hands/arms, but sometimes legs/feet), and I inhale ... I imagine that it is removing something from that bodypart (life force, blood, etc.) and I have to exhale in the exact same spot that I inhaled in order to replace what was removed from that bodypart. And I have to exhale in the same quantity that I inhaled ... otherwise I might not put enough back...or put too much back. And if I feel any breath on one hand/arm, etc, I have to blow on the other arm/hand to get a symmetrical sensory experience.

Same with hot and cold. If I touch something hot or cold with one hand, I have to repeat the experience with the other hand in order to maintain symmetry.

I have done these things ever since I was a little kid, and I remember when I was 5 or 6, my mom asking me why I am blowing on my fingers, or blinking my eyes in a funny way (to get symmetrical experiences in the visual field). Even as an adult, I had one person ask me why I blow on my fingers.

I also bite my fingernails.

Semi professional for most of the time, but for 4 years at the end where it was full time professional touring Australia. Its a tough playing 7 gigs a week and sometimes not even knowing what town you are in, but wouldn't have changed it for anything. It was a blast.

I've been accused of that a time or two. I hate real life conversations because I just can't get up and go do something else then come back in reply. Sometimes I will type something outlandish, post it, knowing that I'm going to immediately delete it just because I want to see it first.


Have done this. The best ones were the ones across the bridge of my nose. Trying to watch in the mirror but I found myself looking directly at them and going cross eyed. LOL!
I have stitched myself several times with fishing line. I was motivated to do this my that scene in First Blood.

I can pop over 40 joints in my body in a single sitting. Every digit on every toe (a few will pop more than once) and finger, both hips, knees, elbows, AC joints in my shoulder, several in my back, my ankles....etc

I never could tell a lie until I became a nurse.
I've died several times in my dreams. I also met God in a dream, briefly.
The only way to make me behave in 1977 and 1978 was to promise to take me to see Star Wars. I literally saw it in the drive ins over 30 times. (shocker)
I frequently quote Darth Vader in casual conversations. "All too easy."
I have no fear of drowning. It is actually on my preferred ways of dying list.
I have a preferred and not preferred ways of dying list.

Another thing... I'm very competitive, but I often avoid competition because I feel bad when I beat some one at something they had their heart set on winning.
For instance, my daughter's boyfriend wanted to challenge me in a feat of strength the other day. (A friendly competition.) I beat him on the first round so he wanted to go again. I could tell he was severely embarrassed, so rather than embarrass him again I made up an excuse about not having the endurance to compete again. Total lie! Truth is I went easy on him the first round and didn't feel like humiliating the guy.

I will watch the same movie 50 times or more.

Cats are my favourite animal & I was brought up to actively dislike cats.

I hate the taste of any alcoholic drink but will binge drink on occasion just to get the feeling.

I never touched hard drugs until I was over 35.

I never touched dope until about 6 months ago & never will again.

I am absolutely fascinated by the vein that runs up my bicep. Only people that have been fat most of their lives & lost a lot of weight will understand this.

If I do not have exactly 3 cups of coffee in the morning & in the evening, I end up with debilitating headaches that last a week & where I cannot actually get out of bed.

The fitter I get & the more weight I lose, the higher my blood pressure goes.

A day later I realized that I had taken it apart in my sleep because I thought that the leaf blower outside my window was actually my vacuum cleaner stuck in the on position. I remember taking it apart piece by piece wondering why it wouldnt shut off. I ended up going back to sleep I guess. The thing wasnt even plugged in and the contents were spread out all over when I woke up.

I'm a musician and when I have a gig people come with video cameras and record the show then put it up on youtube...I don't know these people.....

Because I don't have a college degree I've had to learn a bunch of different things to make a living. I tune and repair Pianos, I'm a notary public, I can program in Visual Basic and I know SQL real well I was in the tech field for over 20 years. I teach both Guitar and Piano and I have 4 personal trainer certificates through NASM

When I was a kid I taught myself to bat and throw with both hands. I purposely freek people out when we play catch with a football because I'll alternate which hand I throw with. I do throw it farther and harder with my right but I can still throw a football close to 40 yards with my left hand.

I've driven a 340 yard green at a local golf course several times...I have really long arms and legs for my height and that equal club head speed.....Not to mention I took a few years of golf lessons back in my 30's... I don't play anymore....too costly and too time consuming

I'm a gamer girl (RPG, Xbox, Board, Card...etc). :D At the height of our fitness physiques (what I am striving for again) hubby and I strolled into a game store and we got the strangest looks as we, at the time, didn't fit the stereotypical look. We got the "You play games?!?!" It was a bit of a joyous occasion lol

I also like unique names. I have a generic name, but hubby is Sky (no middle name) and we named our son Tyr after the god of strength- the lesser known brother of Thor

I like to threaten my guy friends that I can neuter a cat in under 2 minutes (vet tech 18 years)

People are surprised by my drawing ability....

Hmm, long pig! I doubt that the sweet and sour is authentic though.

just a little jingle going through my head for the past 25 years. . .
"Try to remember
The friends we dismembered
And swallowed
Swallowed
Swallowed!

The flavor that lingers
Is found in the fingers
We swallowed
Swallowed
Swallowed!"

I never get angry. Only about once a decade for the past 30 have I been angry. Those 3 times did involve a sort of Hulkish response to a woman being bullied. But other than that, nothing. No matter what the personal provocation. When provoked, my mind always seems objective, externalized. I am, however, described as introverted but can speak with passion, utterly without rage.

That's why I always find John's posts interesting; we're the same age, both professionals, bodybuilding backgrounds, urban dwellers. But he's apparently possessed of a hair trigger temper, which is alien to me.

I am a total introvert.

I will cross the street or go out a side door to avoid talking to people I know.

I often discard friends because they bother me.

My expectations of people are abnormally high.

After having a argument with people I often replay that argument in my head many times.

I am never late, in fact usually I am 15-20 min early all the time. But at social functions I can not wait to leave.

I had a nasal polyp cut out of my nose three times and now it has not come back. The first and third time I cut it out myself. It bleeds a lot less when the doctor does it, but that's expensive and the bleeding clears out any possible infection.

It hurt some, but as I believe I've stated earlier -when I know pain is coming my tolerance is very high.

I think I'm mildly Asperger-ish. I cannot look people in the eye for more than a second. When I try, I feel my less dominant eye starting to wander off to the side. Oddly, my parents never told me to look people in the eye. They never taught me that normal people do look you in the eye when conversing. I didn't realize until I was in college that I should look people in the eye.

I'm a terrible conversationalist, another thing I didn't know until I was in college. Two incidents brought this to my attention: I was walking down the street with a girl I knew, in silence, when she asked me why I didn't talk to her. "That's why people hang out together, you know." Another time, I was driving through a historic neighborhood with a friend when he commented on the design of one of the homes. I said "Yeah, I was thinking the same thing", and he said "Well why didn't you say something if you were thinking that?" I never occurred to me to say something; it was my own thought for myself. To this day, I always feel the pressure to converse, and I don't understand why the pressure is on me. Why can't the other person carry the conversation?

The final thing that makes me think I have a mild case of Asperger's: I don't recognize people's faces very well, and I don't remember their names. If I see someone out of context, like a co-worker in the grocery store, I'm liable to walk right by them. I may think to myself that they look familiar, but I don't know from where. This isn't a problem with people that I've known for about 5+ years, but any less than that and I probably won't recognize them. My husband on the other hand, will recognize people even if he's met them only once, or if he hasn't seen them in years, even if they've gained/lost a lot of weight, changed their hairstyle, and aged 10 years.

I have some of that too, especially if they are out of context. Sometimes I see someone and wonder, "Should I know this person? Do I make an ass of myself and pretend to know him/her or be a jerk and pretend not to?"

I've often wondered if I have some touch of autism. Check out the book "Born on a Blue Day." He reminds me a lot of me - except for the genius part and seeing numbers as shapes.

I am also very bad with faces and names, and since I moved to the US it's worse because it's harder for me to remember foreign names. But faces is pretty bad too. I have 2 colleagues that I swear after several years I still mistake one for the other. If I see them together I know which is which, but if I see one of them by herself, it takes me quite a bit to figure out which one she is.
The worst part is when people behave like they know me pretty well, and I can't remember them, it's pretty mortifying. I used to pretend I recognized them and ask some neutral questions to keep them talking while I figured out who they were, but it backfired on me when I asked "so how's the family" and the person's face dropped and she said "uh, I am single". So now I just bite the bullet and apologize and admit I don't remember them.

I'm left eye dominant. I din't know this until I was tested in a hunter safety course. I think this is why I could never throw a ball well as I am right hand dominant.

To this day, I always feel the pressure to converse, and I don't understand why the pressure is on me. Why can't the other person carry the conversation?

I'm so like this. I use verbal communication for one thing, to exchange important and relevant information. That whole, communication to connect thing just doesn't come natural for me. If I don't have anything interesting to say I don't say it, and if someone doesn't have anything interesting to say I don't want to hear it.

I'm so like this. I now tell people that I have "facial amnesia"

Another weird thing. My second toes are longer than my big toes.

Also, I hate the word "they" and almost never use it. When I do catch myself using it I quickly define "they." If someone else uses it I always make them define they. "They" said we had to do it, "They" made the schedule this way, "They" don't care about [insert anything].

also, I hate mispelled words but still can't spell common words. eg. I just misspelled mispelled in the last sentence (fuq did it again) Literally got it right once and wrong the next time.

Damn it. I also do things like that. I hate when I do that.

Another weird thing about me... I have a really hard time distinguishing right and left. I usually say "that way", and point. To remember which is which, I have to stop and thing about which hand I write with. That's right, so the other way is left.

Oh yeah. One more. My left eye has a misshapen pupil, and it does not dilate. It's small, like 3/4 of a circle, flat on top. I can see pretty well out of it, but it's definitely a weak eye. It doesn't wander off to the side except as I mentioned before, when I'm trying to look someone in the eye. It focuses very slowly too. When a ball is coming at me, it vanishes from my vision when it gets close (unless it's big like a basketball), making it nearly impossible to hit a baseball or a tennis ball. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
