Gah!

Sorry to be the johnny come lately on this thread. It's pretty damned interesting! I've been quite busy with meme #1 on my list.

1. As a single male over 50, you wouldn't think I'd be navigating the adoption process.

2. I too count just about everything blessed thing that comes in numbers of more than 1 - the number of stairs, the numbers of steps between cracks, the number of glass panes in a window.  I count by 5's though with a complication of the first and last item counting for 10 points.  My therapist thinks I'm funny ;)

3. For the longest time I thought I was coward.  As it turned out, things I thought I was a coward about, I was really just bored by.

4. I can't think of a movie with a kid in it in a serious role, where I haven't cried.

5. I like to walk the streets at night, looking into people's windows.  Not at all interested in the people, just how they decorate.  I love seeing how different styles of furniture combine, and how some of those darker more dramtic colours look.


BONUS: I used to suffer migraines every weekend.  Then I quit the radio business and the stress just dissolved away.

Wow, thanks to all for the compliments.  I appreciate it, that's something you can't hear enough of.

Interesting thread, this. I'm positively surprised that I'm not as odd as i thought i was... :) (No offence intended)

1. However outgoing i might seem to be over the internet, i am, in fact, a rather shy fellow.

2. There's many things that i just can't take as seriously as i should. (School, for instance)

3. I am paranoid and have an exceptionally short temper. Darn those bullies at elementary... >_>

4. Despite being a fairly big geek, i find MMORPGs boring after gaining the first few levels. There are a few exceptions, of course.

5. My spoken language is 80% danish, 10% English, 5% gamer slang and 5% leet. Yes, that means that i tend to go "LOL", "ROFFLE" and "OMFG" out loud.

Alright, well I'm going to go by "Five things DonationCoders (probably) don't know about me."

1) I married an alienw.
2) I didn't realize that I also count the number of steps I take going up or down stairs until I noticed so many people here doing it. I don't actually count the stairs, I count how many steps I take (I usually take them two at a time).
3) I own 7 or 8 website domains and none of them have any real (updated) content. One of those domains is full of poetry and miscellaneous writing I did several years ago. Another one contains animations I made of stick figures killing each other.
4) I often interpret words literally. So even though I know what people mean, I consider the words in their literal meaning. I find myself curious about the origins of figures of speech and the denotative meanings of words. As such, I love puns and double entendres.
5) A bunch of related ones all in one: I appear young for my age (I turn 26 this year). I'm 6'1" (185.4cm) but only weigh about 115 pounds (52.3kg). (That's barely on the BMI chart.) I broke the 100 pound barrier in my senior year of high school (9 years ago).

Danish, what a cool language. Tried to learn it back in the 90s and got good enough to read online newspapers and one novel, then after several failed attempts to move there, I gave up. Total fail on my part. For speaking 10% English, Shook, you're doing great.

Yes! He's ahead of most native English speakers WRT his command of the language!

1. In Love with SF & F since my 13th birthday. Am 47 now.
2. Blade Runner is still my favorite movie - and a great book. And yes, I know the real title.
3. Rita Hayworth is still the most beautiful woman on screen.
4. Married a girl from my high school 8 years after finishing it. Still in love, 3 great kids, still in lust.
5. I watch out for license plate combinations. In Germany it goes x-xx nnn, meaning city code (1-3 letters) - 1-3 letters 1-3 digits. I live in Berlin, so my city code is B
Whenever I look around, I'll find a plate with B-Cxx xxx. There are more plates with a C as the first letter after the city code than any other combination. Sometimes I count them when driving or walking.

But apart from that I am quite sane.
The more things stay, the more they change the sane.

I know I'm going to feel like an idiot when you tell me the answer... but what's SF&F?

Well, I've been missing out, this is one awesome thread. My contribution:

1. I can say the alphabet backward as easily as I can forward.
2. When eating ice cream from a bowl, I stir it to a paste before eating it. My favorite flavor is mint choc-chip.
3. I'm not a gamer at heart, but leave me alone with a Mario game for a few hours and you'll find squished goombas all over the place.
4. I tend to be a tad black and white; I love it or I hate it. Apparently I tend to be more black than white; f0dder has taken to calling me Hatery (an anagram of my nick) on the IRC channel.
5. I am utterly obsessed with Carnegie Deli Cheesecake (despite never having liked it from any other establishment) and Cheeburger Cheeburger despite the fact that nither have a branch in my country (.au).

Ehtyar.

Yes, but the question then becomes "how difficult is it for you to say the alphabet forward?" :P

2. When eating ice cream from a bowl, I stir it to a paste before eating it. My favorite flavor is mint choc-chip.

I did this a few times as a kid with vanilla ice cream and food coloring to get red, green, yellow, or blue ice cream. I didn't do it very frequently because I often didn't have the patience with a treat in front of me to wait for it to melt enough to become a paste.

How does one do this? Do you say the letters individually ("ell oh ell") or force it into a word ("lahl")?

The latter. How one pronounces it is probably dependent on your nationality, though. "Ohmfguh!" :huh:
Be careful though, it might stick to your tongue... But luckily, "LOL" and such aren't unknown (or unused) terms in my class. >.>
Fun fact: If i "catch" a meme on the internet, it usually goes over to my mouth as well.

Lol, I can say the alphabet as well as anyone else I know. i.e. I have no problem saying the alphabet forwards.

2. When eating ice cream from a bowl, I stir it to a paste before eating it. My favorite flavor is mint choc-chip.

Yeah once or twice that has gotten the best of me, but 99% of the time this is how i eat my icecream from a bowl.
