I shot several people in Reno because I wanted to watch them die because they did that thing that was funny like two years ago where you change the line from the Johnny Cash song with something rhyming with 'die'.
Before I shot them in Reno I went to their homes, kidnapped them, and drove through the hot desert sun with them piled up in the trunk of my car, plastic bags over their heads that had been punctured once for air. The heat made them sweat, they could all smell the fear in each other as they rode for hours longer than they could remember the numbers to count to. One of them thinks that they will not die because why would he go through this work to make them suffer before death no one would know no one would know it would serve no point he might as well just kill them before this can't be happening this can't be happening

He also has a bunch of old roman coins.

Ooh! I do too. There's a really well-respected dealer downtown that I get catalogues from and stuff. I have byzantine, Islamic, and Roman coins and I also collect American coins (Morgan and Peace dollars, etc.)

I'm a geek, basically.

I talk to myself almost constantly.

Once, I was walking somewhere and my brother passed me... he wouldn't pick me up because he thought I was having some kind of psychotic episode (talking away with no one there).

Trying to make it interesting, as opposed to dull:

I played Washington Irving on stage and had to get so angry at one point that I kicked over a table, injuring someone else in the process.
I once bit a chav in the throat because he pushed a snowball into my face after a really bad day.
I spent a good 3 days last semester speaking only in old english to get into character for playing Chaucer.

Oh yeah, that.

Nothing exciting. I was in a town near the Russian/Finnish border and I missed my train back to Helsinki. In Russia they generally only give you visas that last the exact number of days that you plan to stay in the country, so my visa ran out at midnight. The police pulled me outside because they thought I might be in the country illegally or something, but I managed to explain to them that I'd simply missed my train and I wasn't trying to outstay my visa, so after a bit of discussion they put me in the back of a police van and started driving me towards the border. The cop driving the van asked me for money but I didn't have much and the only A.T.M. we found didn't work, so he dropped me off on the Russian side of the border and left me to fend for myself. When I tried to cross the border the border-guards (Russian Army guys) stopped me, and after explaining my situation again they started asking every car that passed over the border into Finland if they were going to Helsinki. Eventually they found one that was going to a town about 70 kilometres away, and I got in.

So the army guys were much cooler than than the cops. Sure, the cops drove me to the border, but they weren't happy about it and they didn't help me much beyond that. The army guys hitched me a ride, though.

Unusual evening, that one.

On an almost related note, I was offered hashish by an official customs agent. On duty. On post. In plain view of about 6 more customs agents.
It's strange and you probably did not know it about me.

(I turned it down. We were still used as drug mules on the way off from the border but that's another strange story.)

I am still trying to convince est to get "DICKS" and "BOOBS" tattooed in binary on his forearms. He then would have to tell everyone they translated to "Peace" and "Tranquility" or something similarly clichéd. He is standing firmly against the idea.


All the strange things about me I have told people on a fairly regular basis, but I did realise that I have a fair few of the symptoms of that TMJ thing that Joe mentioned, except for the pain. My orthodontist told me the joints of my jaw felt like a bag of marbles, and was a bit surprised it didn't hurt. I also have a gap where one of my baby teeth came out without an adult tooth to replace it, so my teeth misaligned and my jaw slid across a little to compensate, so I still have a straight-looking smile.

Not really all that interesting, though.

When I was 12 I was ranked the 871st best Scrabble player in the United Kingdom. I only attended one competition the next year, dropped to 976, then I stopped playing.

I am a proficient Campanologist. I have rung several quarter peals and an extent on a ring of six, normally as the tenor. I am considering taking it up again because I need money and you can get paid for weddings, though I'm not sure if they allow piertced atheists to do it (I learned when I was much younger).

One of my legs is a centimetre shorter than the other, owing to having a ton of sheet metal dropped on it when I was three. This has left me with a strange, gimp-like walk and is the main reason I prefer to always wear boots, for their additional ankle support.

I have had my poetry published twice, once in a collection by children when I was 9, the other time in a magazine as an adult.

I have been arrested once, for writing "Legalise Murder: Why Should Governments Have All the Fun?" on the wall of an abandoned building whilst extremely drunk. The arresting officer told my mother later that I am the politest person he has ever taken into custody. I was so polite he let me turn out my own pockets, which meant he never found the eighth of skunk. He tried to embarrass me in front of my mother with the bottle of amyl nitrate and the tobacco he had taken from me, but it didn't work. The only other time I thought I might be arrested, I was also extremely drunk. A police officer made me prove I was drunk by holding an electric shock pen, such as one might purchase at a joke store, for six seconds, then let me go. At least, I think that's what happened. He definitely made me hold the shock pen. All I did was piss on a wheelie bin.

i associate numbers with meanings, and they usually have absolutely no reason behind them at all. such as 2 means my mom, 8 stands for fat people, 10 is sex, etc. some of them stay pretty much the same, like 8, 10, and 11, while other numbers like 2, 3, 4, and 6 change meaning frequently. i shall probably make a list someday. is that strange enough for the intarwebs?

simple addition/subtraction looks like Tetris in my head.

for example, seven has a curved slot on top which is exactly three units below the imaginery line representing Ten. so when i put five on top of seven, the curved bottom of five fits perfectly into the top of seven, extending the top of the five exactly two units above the ten line (equalling 12). three also fits perfectly into seven, but it stops right on the ten line. some numbers have to be turned to fit; like if i was doing eight plus five, the eight would have a rectangluar slot in the top and five would have to be turned upside down so it's top (which equals two, remember?) fits into the top of the eight and the bottom (which equals three) sticks up above the ten line (making thirteen).

i would really like to know if anybody else here thinks like this because i have talked to so many people about it and they all look at me like i'm fucking insane.

interestingly enough, this method is probably the reason i am so bad at complex math.

I have this wierd obsession with faces. Sometimes, when I'm listening to someone talk, my mind helplessly wanders to things like how I would draw or paint that person, if I had the chance. How the swell of the cheekbone transitions to jaw, maybe, or what colours would represent them best. If I'd use blended colours or stipple. I've only actually completed one of these paintings and the subject never saw it.
