  1. When I was 5 years old I correctly guessed the number of black and orange jelly beans in the jar at school and won myself a Halloween pumpkin
  2. I've travelled to every US state except for Alaska
  3. I enjoy picking lint and other debris out of velcro
  4. I still enjoy playing with Lego
  5. My biggest pet peeve is people that drag their feet. I have been known not to hire a fully qualified individual with amazing credentials simply because they dragged their feet. I've also been known to stop hanging out with certain people because of this as well.
  6. I enjoy thrill rides and have been known to travel specifically to try out a new thrill
  7. I compose naughty poetry on any magnetic poetry set I have access to
  8. I named my dog what I wanted to name my daughter. Seeing that I'm not having kids any time soon and that it is a 50/50 chance it will be a girl, giving the name to my dog made far more sense. Unfortunately numerous other people I know also wanted to use that name for their daughters. As a result they dislike me for using it on my dog.
  9. I've experienced an opioid induced itch aka The Morphine Itch and it was extremely unpleasant
  10. I've been in far too many car accidents as a passenger and as a result am weary of entering other peope's vehicles (I'm slowly getting over this.)

  12. I enjoy thunder storms and lightning
  13. I enjoy getting drenched and running about in thunder and lightning even more
  14. I am a perpetual dreamer and often find myself detatching myself from reality
  15. I recently started feeling kind of bad for making fun of a girl in elementary school that touched the wet brown paint. I said she touched poo. She cried.
  16. My ultimate dream car is a Lotus. I fell in love with them the first time I saw the Lotus Esprit in the James Bond movies
  17. I sometimes walk around cemetaries reading old tombstones, I find it strangely spiritual
  18. When I can't sleep I often read about serial killers, often times at
  19. I enjoy cooking but I often end up spending more on ingredients than I would on dining out
  20. On a good day I can type 95 words per minute with 100% accuracy
  21. Before the internet I used to dial in to BBS's on a modem so slow it would make me want to hop out and push. Yes I'm a geek.
  22. I didn't get an allowance when I was in grade school. I did however get transit tickets. I would sell these to other kids who thought they were cool and would use the money to buy myself things. I would then tell my parents I used up all the transit vouchers to get more.
  23. When I shared a room with my sister I used to fling boogers over to her side of the room
  24. I obtained a black belt in Taekwondo. My membership expired shortly after and I never really learned anything at the black belt level however.

  26. I dream of being a Ninja and sometimes get caught sneaking around like a fool
  27. My mom almost died giving birth to me. I would get reminded of this whenever she got mad
  28. I almost died by choking on a banana when I was 3. What a humiliating way to die that would've been.
  29. I've been working on developing a taste for mushrooms for the past 6 years. I still can't handle button mushrooms.

  31. I was the culprit that flushed my grade 6 teacher's keys down the toilet.
  32. I have a tendancy to become addicted to pain killers. As a result I always try not to take any.
  33. When I go deep sea fishing I enjoy reeling up the fish extremely quickly so the change in pressure pops their eyes and lungs out. Cruel I know, but that's the boy within me and I still do it.
  34. I'm horrible at organizing my email
  35. I had curly hair until my first haircut
  36. I enjoy drinking Fresca. I get made fun of because it's an "old persons" soda

  38. My frist word was "eat"
  39. I like lists of things
  40. I'm afraid of gaining a gut once I hit 30. Apparently it runs in the family.

  54. I succumbed to peer pressure during a grade school ski trip and threw pennies at hookers from the school bus
  55. I've had a cop think I was driving whilst high as a kite because of my bad allergies. I had a stuffed up nasally voice and insanely swollen eyes.
  56. My Grandma on my mother's side was distant and didn't care much for me, yet I strangely and routinely bring flowers to her grave semi-annually
  57. This may be driven from my poor relationship with my parents and my yearning for family
  58. I have a knack for remembering obscure facts, as a result I kick ass at Trivial Pursuit
  59. I've burst out laughing at a funeral before. Yes I'm THAT guy. It's apparently a common thing for people who don't know how to cope properly at least that's what I've been told.

  68. I remember intricate and minute details about people and places

Strangely Interesting

  • Check this out. Someone took the time to draw a pic of Homer Simpson purely in CSS.

  • Not feeling safe at night? How about a table that turns into a shield and bat?

  • Seeing as I will most likely never climb Everest, this will have to do.  Someone has kindly created this 360 Degree panorama of the view from the top.
