Interesting facts about yourself by Aeryn on 03-06-2008 at 10:21 PM

I was thinking about life and achievements and all that, and then it occurred to me that every one of us have some little things about us that make us unique, or at least different from the majority of people out there. Please share anything that you consider an interesting fact about yourself (and you're comfortable with sharing, of course!).

Some of mine:

- I have never worn the Christian cross (as a necklace, etc), while it seems to be the most common decoration out there.
- I can eat anything without ever becoming fat.
- I have the letter-number synesthesia, which makes me intensely dislike and avoid number 4.
- I have a phobia of feathers - and I have never publicly admitted it before.


Now let's hear yours!


RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Tasha on 03-06-2008 at 10:40 PM

- I have an odd little thing where I have to check about 10-20 times that my mobile phone really IS off, even though I know it is, and it doesn't come back on when I press a button, but I just have to check again and again. This actually really annoys me. >_>

- I have a fluffy toy collection that well exceeds one hundred. Several of my toys are unique and I'm the only owner of them in all the world. Some people think I'm a little weird for it, but I love my fluffy toys so much. :P

- I don't like looking at 'plain' fish, things like goldfish, cod and trout. They really, really creep me out for some reason. Yet I can eat fish, and I think tropical fish are pretty. But something about 'plain' types of fish when they're alive and swimming, or when they're like in a shop and still have their heads and tails, really bugs me and makes me feel ill.

Not sure how interesting any of these are, but hey. :P


RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Voldemort on 03-06-2008 at 10:42 PM

I can add something for tasha, she strongly dislikes snakes


Edit:
Damn, i can't think of much about myself. i don't think i have any special faults.


I've never broken anything, if that counts, and I've been in pretty nasty situations.
I've two snakes that are next to my bed, lots of people are scared of them.
I drink ALOT of milk
I'm very patient and takes a lot to get me mad but once I'm mad i won't stop :p
Also, IRL, i talk way too much.

i'm a good liar, but i very rarely lie
i can tell a lot of the times when i am being lied too, i think i can read people relatively well
i've gotten in quite a few fights, i'm a big guy ;p
I sleep a lot. My record was 19 hours.
I am very lazy. I do stuff at last minute and manage to do a good grade
I never study but i manage to do well on tests
teachers usually dislike me because i never stop talking and do good in their class :P

- I like to type formal but people on some forums think it's a bad idea.

RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Chris4 on 03-07-2008 at 02:08 AM

More.. :)

RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Willz on 03-07-2008 at 02:10 AM

Ok well heres mine:

- My first PC was a 486dx, I had this computer until 2002 so it was extremely horrible. But then I went to a p4 1.7 and that was like godly at the time :P

- My first year of university was dedicated to being an ass. At one point me and a mate hid in 2 wheely bins that we placed outside the door and we would pop up at random points and start yelling at the top of our voices. Hilarious. (and yes there are photos)

- I am of a hispanic background, I can speak it but I can't write for crap because I never learnt it since I grew up in Australia.

- I quit skinning after my first skin failed miserably. It wasn't until I teamed up with ipab that I actually got some skill.

- People say I have real good luck. "WTF, no freaking way!" is something that I hear often :P

- I finished high school when I was 16 and completed my university degree at 19, apparently I'm "creative smart".

Thats about it for now.

meanie :(

ok then some real stuff now :P

- i like black humor, probably too much.
- People who get to know me usually tell me that they didn't like me when they first met me (the reason might be my dodgy black humor).
- i'm 'addicted' to coke and ice cream 8-)
- For some really odd reason, the girls i like/girlfriends usually have a name or last name that starts with the letter "C" O_o It worries me :refuck:.
- i've got a little collection of empty cans of coke and other drinks.
- My face turns red easily, i can't help it it's an odd thing as it can happen even when im alone, it doesn't have to do with being shy or being embarassed, it just happens (although i AM shy in some situations :P).
- People think im 18-20 after i cut my hair :sad:
- I bite my nails and i can't stop doing it for some reason.
- i sit in really weird positions while on the computer (you should see me right now :P). my feet are never on the floor where they should be.
- i've got quite some issues with my sight that most of you already know about.
- I can sleep anywhere, anytime.

Edited:
- i've never broke a bone.
- i enjoy walking around the city.
- I've been in Argentina and Brazil.
- I always say i'm lazy and people tend to believe me, but im actually really responsible (and a perfectionist) when i have work to do.

That's it for now :P

RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Joa on 03-07-2008 at 03:22 AM

umm..

- i have this thing where i disappear for weeks, sometimes even months at a time.. and it's not just off the net, i mean in rl friends and family are like "where the f--- is she" (they're used to it now though). but, i have this overpowering need sometimes to just hide away, doesn't have anything to do with anyone. i just need solitude,  i don't pick up the phone, don't answer the door, get out of the house when i see somebody coming etc. (and it's not agoraphobia or anything, i just need to be alone, usually if u'r quiet and ignore me i can be around you at that time 8-) )

- i'm very lazy, it's not that i don't care, it's just that icba to do it. not with everything, but things that are requested of me. some of my friends/teachers developed this thing where they stop asking me, and it actually works cuz then i actually do it.

- i love all creepy bug things, basically all animals which are/look scary or disgusting.

- change my mind often, so like.. my ideas, beliefs.. they are not stable at all people.

- i trust no one. not even myself.

- i'm into witchy stuff.

- can't take compliments.

will write more later. TONS more. i'm like all "weird and stuff".

Edit:
I LOVE to pull pranks on people and play really really really mean jokes. it's just so liberating.. and well, it brings me joy to see the expression of shock and total confusion on another's face. sheer horror works too.

RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Lou on 03-07-2008 at 04:53 AM

No matter how much I eat (like a few other people here ;o) I don't gain weight. My boss thinks I'm weird because of that :P

I can take most stressful situations calmly, but directly after I'll go into some sort of shock where I shake a bit, and I can't concentrate on anything for very long.

I love to learn how to do new things, but I have a tendency to give up easy unless I have a good reason to keep going.

- Never broken a bone.

- I hate answering the phone. I'm alright with talking to people, just not on the phone.

- I can't stand people who walk slow. It annoys the hell out of me, I just wanna get where I'm going as quickly as possible, not just waste time by walking slowly everywhere.

- Never had any alcohol (apart from when I was younger, watered-down wine, doesn't really count :P), never smoked, never done drugs, and never want to.

- I've never been outside the UK.

- My imagination gets the better of me. I'm really easily distracted by my thoughts when doing anything and find it hard to concentrate.

- The first boyfriend I ever had has the same surname as my current boyfriend. :P

- I'm not into my looks like a lot of girls I know are. I make an effort, sure, but I don't care about fashion, (I wear what's comfortable and looks good on me, don't care about labels or anything), I don't wear makeup (well apart from like lip balms/lip gloss8-)), I don't fuss for like 5 hours when I have a small spot. I'm a sort of take me as I am or bug off kind of person... Yet I'm very insecure about myself.

... I'm not really much more interesting than anyone else. :P

  • I know a fair few things, or at least I know where to find the answers.  What things I don't know I usually make up and sound convincing (educated guesses).

  • I have a natural ability to look at things and find patterns, it is how I learn a lot of my maths.

  • I hate people in shopping centres or crowded places that dont seem to have any predictability about where they are going.
  • I don't each fruit, but I love vegetables.
  • I have to eat breakfast or else I usually end up feeling sick
  • The girls I like usually have L as the first letter of one of their 2 given names or it is Al or El that gives an "L" sound.
  • I love the cold, and also rain when I can stay at home
  • I moved lots as a child and now feel sad whenever we clean the house or move furniture lots.
  • I have never left my state, let alone Australia
  • I prefer any beer that comes in a green bottle

Same thing. Drives my parents nuts, but they're mostly the cause of it. XD They always told my bro and I never to answer the phone unless we know it's them so i always let it go to the answering machine (unless it's my cell phone) I NEVER call anyone unless they're relatives.

Some more things about me:

-I end up getting at least 3 hours of sleep a day because if I don't go to sleep I end up keeling over anyway.

Nope, it's genetics that I share with my brother at least. You can tell what mood we're in by the color of our eyes. When we're calm they're usually gray/blue...happy is blue...and upset/angry is green. When someone stole my cellphone and I happened to look in the mirror (cuz I had been crying a bit...I get emotional sometimes...they were a vivid sea green.

EDIT: Also, the yahoo link shows some factual evidence but it proves that they can indeed change color depending on mood (because the pupils dilate when you're emotional and probably the salt in tears changes the color as well) The second one is quizilla which shouldn't be trusted worth a rats ass anyway.

Eye color is the product of the number and distribution of melanosomes in the cells comprising the iris stroma and the relatively constant distribution within the iris pigment epithelium.  In humans, these can change somewhat throughout different stages of development (infant to adolescent), but do not respond to hormonal or neural factors.  However, in many fish and reptiles, melanosome distribution does change in response to such factors. 

So, if this is indeed happening to you and your brother, it could be a rare case of atavism -- a dormant gene dating back to your amphibian ancestors reactivated due to a random genetic permutation.

However, it is unlikely you are that special and there is no documented study of such a phenomenon that I can find -- so I'd be inclined to believe it is just changes in lighting.  :)
RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Svip on 03-09-2008 at 02:21 PM

Eye colours can change, but it is only common in infants, where after the colour will become permanent.  Unless much sunlight exposer is done upon the eyes during adult life, the colours don't change.

And they certainly do not change on mood.  Mood changing eye colour makes no sense, not even biologically, the brain does not inform its eyes what mood it is in, in fact, I don't think the brain informs any part of your body what mood it is in.

Instead, it tells "you", and you just manipulate with your facial expressions.  But you cannot change your eye colour.  It's a myth, you are just seeing in the mirror what you want to see.

RE: Interesting facts about yourself by Thor on 03-09-2008 at 08:52 PM

This is a tricky one, but I'll try to sum something up. :o

- I've almost drowned 7 times, yet I love to swim.
- I (like others here) talk way too much IRL.
- I can eat loads of food, but my weight has barely changed during the last years. I like that.
- I can walk for days without eating unless someone reminds me of eating. (Usually that happens on vacations)
- I like being alone, however, I don't mind being with others.
- I am crap at "making topics". For some reason, I tend to live in my own world, and it seems like I prefer it there.
- I have some a strange attraction to hair.
- I love laying down, pretty much anywhere, and just breathe. Nothing over, nothing under.
- I've got 5 siblings.
- Sleep is something I like, but not something that I feel I need (even though I probably do). I can walk for days without sleeping, as long as I keep in activity.
- I have a really annoying tendense to change my thoughts about what I'm going to do. I can sit in the one moment and be completely sure to do some work, and I'll end up somewhere else.
- I've dreamed 4 times that I was sitting on my laptop and coding. Also, I have an average dreamrate of 2 per month.
- I love cake, but I can easily puke because of one.
- I rarely get upset / angre because of things. I like to think of myself as a "calm" person in that way. It's easy to see what mood I am in.
- I've broken loads of things, but not anything regarding my body.
- I like working under pressure.
- Wherever I go, whatever I do, I always feel "watched" and I sort of always look around me, just to keep tracking of everyone around.
- I have a strange tendency of mixing Norwegian and English words. Sometimes I can start talking in English, without noticing.


I do not claim that these facts are interesting, but they're facts. :P And I'll add some more when it come to my attention.

- I like ALL types of music.
- I'm a complete myspace whore, lol.
- I laugh out loud at things that are in my head, which makes people think "wtf". I don't do it on purpose.
- Sometimes I just don't like certain people for no good reason, there's just a "feeling". lol.
- I'm extremely insecure.
- I love the North East accent [Newcastle, Middlesbrough, etc]
- I'm too fat to be 'scene' haha.
- & right now, I can't sleep.

Oh and about the eyes, I'll ask my psychology professor about if mood can change eye color...I'm sure the presence of salt would do something to it though o-o since the light could be refracted differently through the salt crystals in tears.

any emotion that dilates your pupils, can make the iris appear to change color.
also.. there's some debate, but some believe eye color change can be "manipulated"/"caused" by hormonal or neurological changes..

but anyway, from what i have studied and learned... darkening/lightening of eyes is directly linked to blood pressure. the "color of the actual iris DOES NOT CHANGE", it is the blood vessels in the eye that make it appear different in color.

read more about blue/green eye colors to find out why the change from blue to green etc.

brown eyes usually appear lighter or darker and don't change to blue or green or gray.

i dunno if i made sense with this but it's what i know so blah.

Because the pigment in your eye which gives it it's colour would always be the same, no matter how much salt was around.(or any other factor - there is no way to change the pigment other than gene therapy(replacing the DNA strands that code for eye colour) and even that wouldn't give you the option to change at will, it would only be possible to choose a specific colour at the embryotic stage that would then stay with you for life)

Secondly, salt crystals aren't prisms and so would not split up white light into it's full colour spectrum and so would have no effect the the reflected light from the eye. The only thing that could happen due to refraction would be the light coming in or out at a different angle(obviously, as that is the definition of refraction) but that would only change the perspective you see the eye from, ie distance, and size, not colour.

An example of refraction changing the way you perceive something is if you put a coin in the bottom of a tub of water, depending on what angle you look at it, the coin can appear a different size and/or closer or further away then it really is. This is due to the refraction that happens as light a) enters the water and b) leaves.
