I have awful issues with doing stupid things. If i ever do something that i feel wasn't bright it haunts me for years despite how small it is. I still flinch when I think of how i wrote an essay about my favorite video game when i was in the 4th grade. I just cant help it.

thats an another thing. My right eye flinches when I think of things that cause me extreme embarrassment. For some reason it helps block the memory. I dont know why I have such a hard time dealing with these things!

I sleep with grenades under my mattress. The only thing I have to do is roll out of bed and one goes off.

Yeah, well, I name birds; when ever I see a pigeon I think "Hey Gerald" :'(.

I have a few too many odd things to talk about, but for the sake of your sanity I'll stick to films and zombies :-).

When watching films, the earliest time I start is 11pm; I've been known to take 5 hours to watch a 2 hour movie. The spastic viewing time is partially due to my obsessive love of Half-Life LAN's and tea (Lady Grey = awesomeness), I need to have ready access to a kettle and a computer when watching films.

Oh, and, oooh I have a zombie plan! :D
Hmm, a zombie plan thread...
Anyway, yeah, zombie plan: (a) Pretend to be a zombie until a safe sniper nest is reached.
(b) Shoot zombies till all ammunition is gone.
(c)(I borrowed this part from a commie friend) Find a boat, stock it up with food, and head to an oil rig.

I have a tendency of talking myself to sort out logical incongruities. It's only awkward when I do it in the middle of a conversation, but at the same time it makes for some excellent quotes.

I have come out twice in my life. First time was in my freshman year, when I came out as bisexual. Then, the week of the 6th (that is, 6 March 2010) I started thinking and I realized I wasn't really interested in girls anymore. So I just left that as my Facebook status. The first coming out was quite a bit more emotional and whatnot than the second. The second was very casual.

I have perfect pitch, and a lot of kids in my choir are jealous/pissed off because of it. :)

I step over cracks in the sidewalk with alternating feet.
I occasionally chew "right teeth, left teeth, left teeth, right teeth"
My eyes twitch a lot.
So does my mouth.
Whenever I listen to music, my fingers tap, whether I like the song or not.
Once in a while, my whole body will randomly shake. It does so three to seven times in a row.
When I make a slight movement, I have to do it four times.
I crack the knuckles of my thumbs, my big toes, and my neck.
I make random humming noises.
I randomly mutter things to myself.
I stand up without knowing why.
I wipe my glasses whenever it looks like something's on them.
I always keep the tip of my pencil sharp, and hate it when it gets slightly dull.

Having Tourette's syndrome is fun :lol:

I have two spots on the left side of my head that itch for no physical reason.
If I shave the hair on those spots, they stop itching.
And I'm -2.

Not so much a disease, but it is a very real condition. My friend Sean has grapheme-color synesthesia, which means he sees certain letters and numbers as having certain intrinsic colors. I believe 2 is a red number for him...
I got blazed out of my mind last night and felt like I could feel words and numbers (I was doing a calc problem in my head)... Not sure if that was a genuine synesthetic episode or just pot. :)

I talk in my sleep, sometimes in german, sometimes I sing, supposedly I managed a halfway decent version of 99 red balloons in german in my sleep once.
I don't care about doing stupid/ dangerous stuff because I know I'm incredibly lucky with that kind of thing and surviving, that and if I do die/ massively injure myself I'll have had an awesome time doing it.
I discovered I somewhat suffered from vertigo when paragliding last year.
If I concentrate on my right ear I can move it slightly and it sounds like my brain vibrates.
My left leg will randomly start moving up and down for no apparent reason.
If I've got a load of the same item with one marking and then the same item but with a different marking I HAVE to seperate them out.
I trust anyone until they've proven to ME that they can't be trusted or that I should dislike them (even if friends say I should think otherwise, this is because I wouldn't have them without being like this).
If carrying an umbrella in dry weather I have to put it over my shoulder with my left forearm parallel to the ground or I walk with it hitting the ground at exactly the same time as my right heel.

I wake up feeling worse when I haven't drunk any alcohol than when I have. It's like an anti-hangover. Which is a shame because I stopped drinking alcohol a couple of weeks back.

WHAT IS THIS!?!?! I can do this too. However, I can make the "brain vibrating noise" without wiggling my ears, and can wiggle my ears without making the "brain vibrating noise" so while they may be similar in muscle action, they're separate.

If I had to describe the noise, I'd call it similar to the noise you hear when you hold a seashell to your ear, but MUCH louder and more clear, coming from my skull (no one else can hear it). Because of this, I assumed it was something with blood flow around your brain. However, I have yet to find a good explanation of what exactly this noise is and why I can do it. To me, it feels like a muscle action, rather than describing it as "concentrating on my ear" it feels more like I'm physically flexing a "brain muscle".

Ha ha... not quite. I have an extra earlobe on my right ear. It's quite a bit smaller than my actual earlobe and unless you look closely it just looks like I have a funny shaped earlobe with sort of a kink in it. (Like a cat that's been in a fight.)

Due to a disloged retina or some other type of scientific mumbo-jumbo, I'm partially blind in my right eye and have difficulty seeing above and to the right of me. Clearly, if raptors attack from above and to the right of us, I will be obliged to sacrifice myself.

These are the odd things about myself I can come up with at the top of my head:

The number of torsos (1)
The number of heads (1)
The number of mouths (1)
The number of noses (1)
The number of penises (1)
The number of livers (1)
The number of spleens (1)
The number of hearts (1)
The number of fingers on each hand (5)
The number of toes on each foot (5)

The rest appears to be even.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

i got poor circulation or something, cause my toes are always cold and my hands lose dexterity when it's under 60 degrees. which sucks cause I often play the bass in a garage.

i have a really good ear for hearing musical intervals: thirds, fifths, and so on. including odd ones like 13ths and flat 9ths.

i don't really like candy that much.

I can do the brain vibrating noise simply by looking up as far as i can (with just my eyes) and lifting my eyebrows as far as I can go. sometimes it lasts for thirty seconds or so, instead of the normal five.

I've been catagorizing the odd ways I think about things. For instance:

Periods of time under five minutes do not exist temporally for me. If it takes me five minutes to get to my car, half an hour to drive somewhere, and five minutes to get from my car to the place, the trip takes 30 minutes.

Also I've nailed down my chronic procrastination to some kind of temporal depersonalization. When I put something off I'm delegating it to an unrelated "future me", which exists seperately from my sense of self. Similarily, when that procrastination catches up with me, it's inevitably the result of lazy old "past me", who is also a seperate entity.

Every now and then I wake up at 4 AM (always four) and I can't feel my left arm at all. I just sit up and grab it with my right arm and shake it around as the blood flows into it. It feels like I'm pushing my arm into my skin, like a glove. It's really quite surreal.

When trying to work something out with logic, or make a decision, I often find that I talk to myself about it.
