    15 Completely Random Facts

    About you, of course. Whatever categories you think make you quirky, witty, or filled with awesomesoss.

    I find big, long lists to be difficult to read and shorter ones tend to sink in a little bit better because you aren't being WALL OF TEXT CRITS FOR ELEVENTY BILLION!

    1. I love floppy-eared hound dogs. Have two bassets. They're worse than children.
    2. I've never cheated on a girl, ever. There were a couple that I would've liked to, though.
    3. I'm a 12 year old boy and a 50 year old man in the same body.
    4. I quit smoking, caffeine, and sodas this year. I'm pretty proud of that.
    5. My wife and I have a whole role reversal thing going on. I'm the emotional, sensitive one. She's the cool-headed, matter-of-fact type. She calls me a drama queen. I call her a heartless bitch.
    6. I try to worship the Divine by treating my wife like a goddess. A woman's body is a holy place.
    7. I'm terrified of spiders and I'm absolutely terrified of finding out that you're erased when you die.
    8. Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A, Start is the Konami code. Everyone needs to know this.
    9. I learned just about all of my moral and ethical sense growing up from fantasy literature. Not religion.
    10. I don't believe the three greatest Jews were Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. I believe the three greatest Jews were Larry, Moe, and Curly.
    11. I work as a Communications Officer (Dispatcher) for a local police department.
    12. I eat pizza... a LOT.
    13. My favorite president is Teddy Roosevelt. My favorite scientist is Nikola Tesla.
    14. I tend to tear up during the sad or dramatic parts in movies. I usually yawn and pretend I'm sleepy so my wife doesn't catch me.
    15. I have a tattoo referencing Dungeons and Dragons.
    There once was a man who said though,
    It seems that I know that I know,
    What I'd like to see,
    Is the I that knows me,
    When I know that I know that I know.

    Wow, nobody? These threads are usually popular.

    I don't smell, do I?

    Re: 15 Completely Random Facts

    LOL....I'll do it . Been trying to think if things the regulars here might not know about me.

    1. I prefer salty/savory snacks...except for gummy candies like Swedish fish or those little raspberries. The town I lived i as a little girl in still had an old school drug store with a penny candy counter, and so they're very nostalgic for me.

    2. New Year's resolution is to slowly work my way into eating low carb.

    3. I own a t shirt with Ada Lovelace on it. Geek points if you know who that is.

    4. If left to my own devices, I adopt neighborhood stray cats.

    5. After more then eight years, I have begun wearing black nail polish regularly again, and, as silly as it is, I feel myself in ways I haven't for a long time.

    6. I have an 85 warlock on WoW. Oooo....

    7. Started watching Doctor Who recently. Also, Firefly. They're both like some amazing secret every other geek in the world knew was awesome except for me!

    8. My wedding sucked. We are throwing a wonderful party for our ten year anniversary to make up for it.

    9. Currently reading Sandman by Neil Geiman.

    10. Today I cleaned the inside of my dishwasher with a pair of tweezers and a tooth brush...long story.

    11. When I was a kid, I wanted to either be an anthropologist or a daylily hybridizer when I grew up. Or maybe study tropical diseases. I even made flash cards for the latter.

    12. When I sound like Flanders on here with my goofy fake cuss words, that's actually how I talk in real life.

    13. When I was 13, my family had a period where the lights would blow out, often with a shower of sparks, in the places is pent the most time. A few days later it would happen again. After a few months it stopped as quickly as it had started.

    14. Unlike normal years, my corner of Idaho has gotten little snow, and it feels like spring. We should've started getting -5F at night by now!

    15. I still have not read or seen the final installment of Harry Potter...and have avoided anyone who would spoil it completely by accident

    Re: 15 Completely Random Facts

    I'll add myself, but only because the list is shorter, lol.

    1) I share my life with a Catahoula Leopard dog and two Ball Pythons.

    2) My spirituality seems to be going neo-Romanesque.

    3) I was recently diagnosed w/Avoidant Personality Disorder. It explains a lot about my motivations to me, but I prefer that people just believe I am naturally an ass, emotionally unavailable and reclusive.

    4) I try to avoid mentioning the place I work because we have a restrictive social media usage policy, and I never have much nice to say about the place. I'm Union, I get paid well to do very little, but it doesn't change how horrible the place is or how embarrassed I am to be stuck working there.

    5) The older I get, the geekier I get - I can talk to printers and copiers better than I can to people.

    6) I love herbs, herbal medications & herbal medicines in general, but the more I learn about them, the more advantages I see in synthesized medications for serious conditions.

    7) I'm starting to engage in the Health at Every Size movement.

    8) I'm a troll. Not so much here, but in other seedier parts of the 'Net.

    9) I run proxy programs for people in disadvantaged countries so they can get their messages out to the free world.

    10) I'm teaching myself database administration.

    11) Every weekend since the middle of October, I give myself a cooking challenge. This past weekend was raisin (yeast) bread. Last week was a decent cheese sauce for mac & cheese.

    12) I honestly don't see anything inherently wrong with cannibalism and consider it one of the greener methods of body disposal.

    13) Eating huit le coche is just wrong.

    14) I think one of my past lives was spent with a traveling carnival.

    15) Since I've been diagnosed w/a personality disorder, I've stopped doing Tarot readings or offering any kind of emotional or relationship advice to anyone without adding numerous disclaimers - and I find myself just not saying anything more often than not.

    I did not but thank you for introducing us. That's another feather in my hat.

    I missed Firefly, too. I DO own Serenity and watch it at least once a month, during which I curse Fox for canceling the series.

    9. Currently reading Sandman by Neil Geiman.
    Good series. If I may, I'd also recommend Preacher by Garth Ennis.

    Like, Religio Romana Roman-esque?

    I can honestly say you're the first pro-cannibalism person I've met. Kudos. You do have a point, I suppose...

    Ooo...I keep forgetting about that one! *Adds it to her list* Especially given my preference for Western influence in Steampunk, I'll probably love it.

    Hah, no - Classical neo-Romanesque. Lares & penates, that sort of thing. It may have something to do w/my reconnection to Luna. Even though She's a Titan, She has a more Roman nature to Her. Less of the Grecian maiden-huntress and more of the passionate (and compassionate) matron.
