My username. Or is it..
Hmm and my sig. Or is it.
Maybe its quite ordinary and carries a normal meaning, and you just have to think that little bit more, question the little details, and delve futher into mystery. Maybe I made them knowingly and that they are not something created randomly. Maybe I wanted you to earn the deeper thoughts on my mind which I hide in cryptic messages. Or maybe they are just random. Who knows?

I would say it's mostly because I'm good at maths, or more importantly, LIKE maths, but on this forum that just makes me normal :?

I could program at a stupidly young age, but now I've grown up, it doesn't set me apart anymore!

Meh, I guess I'm just bland as well :(

I am strange because I play the OBOE!
(Hey, hey, enough with the oboe stuff, they're all getting sick of it.)
But...but...
(Just stop.)
Fine.

I am strange because I play a GIANT CUCUMBER.
(...)
I think I win.
(Heehee...giant cucumber...*pokes*)


I am also strange because I LOVE bad puns, still like reading kids' books, and make sculpture out of random things--like pipe cleaners, empty chip boxes (at my factory job), and the bins of icing sugar (at my Tim Hortons job).

- I've had cosmetic surgery. And when I ask people to guess where, nobody ever replies "Your ears". Which I guess means that they did a good job.

- I have a tiny, tiny pigmentation on my right index finger, second digit.

- I have hair on my toes, like a hobbit. (Thanks dad, testosterone comin' in handy, sure)

- I have severe problems with orgasming during intercourse. Which is to say, I don't. Usually.

- I'm proficient with a wide assortment of assault rifles and other projectile weaponry (kind of like Gordon Freeman), and I know (and have trained with) a lot of very dangerous martial arts techniques... Yet I hate violence, and would be hard pressed to actually hurt someone, even when threatened with a beating or a gun. And even then I'd feel guilty for hurting the poor guy, afterwards.

- I can move my eyes individually.

- My saliva glands under my tounge can project a spurt of saliva as much as one meter, horizontally. Like a spitting snake. But it's disgusting, so I don't do it.

- I can remember certain trivia and other stuff, photographically, but not by choice. For instance, I can remember that in my EEA law studybook, there's a typo on page 223 second paragraph, yet I can't remember what the stupid page says! (which would come in handy, come exam time)

- I'm afraid of riding elevators, and will take extreme measures to avoid doing so. Like take the stairs.

- My lack of confidence and self esteem would be legendary even among... ehh... some group with really low self esteem.

And that ought to do for now.

Seems okay, but don't you want to eat? I suppose thats while talking... or is it while sleeping? >.>

Beanbags in ball pens amirite also? In a pillow fort. Not nessecarily sitting down... those are the changes I'd make anyway. Must have music stuffage there too...

Okay so that changes it alot. for the betterer :P

I beg to differ. Beating somebody up is not awesome at all! Firstly, it's illegal as hell, and even if you don't hurt the guy much, you might still go to jail if you're not hurt sufficiently, or he has a lot of friends willing to testify in his favour. And anyway, hurting another human being is *not* cool. I've seen a guy get shot once by accident, at the shooting range in the army. It was absolutely horrible. It was nothing like the movies, just confusion, and screaming, and blood. There's more blood in the human body than you want to know. Well, it fucking petrified me. He was lucky, too, he was hit in the leg, and it only grazed an arterie, so he was ok. But I would *hate* myself if I ever did that to another human being.

Do you know what it feels like, hurting somebody? You don't feel elated, you don't feel "cool", and you don't come out of it looking like The Rock. You get accusing stares, you feel scared, and you feel like a shit for doing something like that to a fellow human being. There is nothing awesome with violence or guns. I hope I'll *never* be in a position to use *any* of those skills.

Being handy with a gun is practical when I go hunting, though. Don't feel bad killing stuff that's tasty, for some reason... Go figure.

I like math, but thats normal around these parts, just like the early programming thing. Maybe it's unusual that I've stopped doing it for no particular reason?
I havn't been to the hairdresser in over two years, yet apparently they still remember me.
I sometimes eat a whole jar of olives in one go.
My stereo currently isn't working because I need to replace a lightbulb.
I hang stuff (like nailclippers) from my ceiling.
I am known to many of my friends as a huge stoner, yet I smoke less than most of them.
I could have easyly gotten an 9 for my cemistry, but I got an 8 instead because I was to lazy to hand in the projects we were supposed to make.
I always keep a F-clamp in my room.
I drink mate, a wierd argentinian drink (I'm dutch)
(I almost forgot this one, but was inpired by Roffle) I've got a scary looking collection of moles on my right arm. It looks a little like two portals next to each other.

I:
-use way too big words
-am socially awkward in the extreme
-think far too much
-am constantly worrying that my social awkwardness due to overthinking will make my girlfriend not like me but I take some comfort in the feeling I get sometimes that my awkwardness displays a charm and a well meaning nature which may have attracted her in the first place
-have little idea what I said above, but think it does well to show how much I overthink situations.
-read far too much, if such a thing is possible
-have a novel in progress
-really wish I could say those things to people where after the fact I'm all 'God damn it I wish I had said that'
-am somewhat paranoid that one of the people on here is someone I know in real life

-Worry. About alot of stuff. Alot of stuff.
-Am related to a known swedish author on my mother's side with whom I share a first name.
-Have had to go to the emergency room three times before the age of four because of my head making contact with a blunt object (the stairs twice and a big old metall bell). Not that this has affected me in any way what so ever. Affected me in any way what so ever.

-Everybody seems to know me by name but I don't know almost anyone.

-I do not have a problem with my penis size. Perhaps because it is larger than that of the 99.8% of the men :roll: Makes me pay 20 extra cents per condom :(

- I have two separate sets of morals; The ones I argue for and the ones I live by. The strange part: I am not ashamed of this nor trying to hide it.

-All my grades are either failed of great.

-I have won a debate contest two years in a row and made 35€/h as a salesman but I fail at social skills.

-I only feel the "big" emotions. Which means that love an despair affect me greatly but to realize that I'm agitated I must notice my hands shaking or my bowel acting up.

and that is why ^_^ my dialect has many words where the vowel you use doesn't 'ffect(can't remeberwhich one to use) the word, devine divine davine duvine and d'vine all sound the same so there is no meaning to many of the extra letters in words so there is nothing wrong with changeing them and I can't tell by saying the word if I have changed them or not

Well, actually... There is. If you're putting it on, and the ring where the rubber of the condom is wrapped is too small to slip over your head, it can be hella tough getting it on. And there's a good chance that the condom might rip, in that case, while you're trying to put it on. That can be annoying... So never buy german condoms, they downsize them down there. Where I live, length isn't a problem, (and I'm not that long, either), it's more of a thickness issue.

It would be possible to use conventional condoms or even very small ones but the pressure they make is very unpleasant. Also after a condom breaks 5 times it becomes an issue (though 3 of them were from the same back so it might be partially manufacturing fault.) I hope that less tension makes them less prone to braking.

EDIT: since this seems to be a pointless post I'll make a pointless edit. Now there.

This reminds me of those blog memes in which you're supposed to list random facts about yourself. I can't ever remember mine, other than the ones related to food. They are:

*When I eat them (which is a rarity), hamburgers must be eaten upside down. It's some sort of irrational belief that it's less messy that way, because the top bun seems to be more.. sturdy, or something.

*I don't like apple pie, and I won't eat peanut butter & jelly together (separate? Sure! But never ever ever together). I've been called un-American for these very things.

It would be possible to use conventional condoms or even very small ones but the pressure they make is very unpleasant. Also after a condom breaks 5 times it becomes an issue (though 3 of them were from the same back so it might be partially manufacturing fault.) I hope that less tension makes them less prone to braking.

EDIT: since this seems to be a pointless post I'll make a pointless edit. Now there.

And there's a good chance that the condom might rip, in that case, while you're trying to put it on. That can be annoying... So never buy german condoms, they downsize them down there. Where I live, length isn't a problem, (and I'm not that long, either), it's more of a thickness issue.

all exellent points, I concede to your statment

Me too. I read a series of novels called Fearless, and I swear I could quote half of them word-for-word because the phrases somehow just stick in my head... but give me a psych book and my memory is the same as everyone else's, where I remember broad concepts but not the actual words.

Other weird things... I hate all the Disney princess movies, but I love the ones that follow male characters. I don't like frosting or mint, and I'm not a huge fan of chocolate. I can bake the best chocolate chip cookies ever, but I'm hopeless at any other kind of cooking. I LOVE the process of traveling, like the part that takes place on the bus or train, because it means I have time to sleep, read, or just not think about anything, without feeling guilty that I could be doing something else. I think things that aren't actually *supposed* to be pretty, like the Lincoln Monument, are prettier than things that were made to be pretty, like the Eiffel Tower.

I'm sure this doesn't make me particularly strange on this forum, but I've spent much of the last three days trying to wrap my head around the mathematics of space-time metrics and how they affect null and timelike geodesics.

I am an English teacher in Mexico, btw, so this is just something to do in my free time rather than any sort of assignment or anything.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

I don't think I'm that strange.

I like to wear masks, but lots of people do. In fact, I'd go so far as to say I was fairly normal among the groups of people I spend time with (Wrestlers/goths/punks/writers).

I like to grow plants in my room. But they can only be plants grown from seeds, or that i found, mostly because I don't have any money to buy anything.
I currently have: a cherry tree, a lemon tree, three artichokes, a willow tree, some assorted bulbs and succulents, and two things that I have no idea what they are, but I'm guessing they are both also trees?

also, I may or may not be growing a fern tree, I 'planted' some spores, and it's about time for them to start growing.

however it may just be another lemon tree.

also, none of my trees are taller than a foot yet.

I'm addicted to tea. However, this is not a caffeine addition, nor is it to a particular kind of tea - it is, literally, an addiction to beverages created by sticking leaves into hot water.

The reason it's not the caffeine? I had to stop drinking caffeine due to a negative reaction with some medication I take. However, I couldn't stand not drinking tea, so I switched to decaf. If I don't get my morning decaf tea, I'm weird for the rest of the day. And it doesn't have to be black tea - roobios or lemon both work, and neither of those have actual "tea" leaves, so it's not the leaves.

I think it's a purely psychological dependency. Eh.

Also after a condom breaks 5 times it becomes an issue


Myself, I would replace it after the first time it broke.

Er, strangely, all of those apply to me except the girlfriend one (I have no girlfriend, as I'm a straight female, and no boyfriend either... but I still have the thoughts about awkwardness being potentially endearing). And I highly doubt anyone here is someone I know in real life. Oh, also, I don't have a novel in progress. but I would like to.

Another weird thing about me is that random phrases from books I've read stick with me and I like to use them in conversation, when they're fitting. I kind of hope that one day someone will realize what I'm quoting. It's never happened before.
