So in the spirit of PSP ballsy-nes I am starting a thread to document the strange things that you do and have no clue why you do them.

3 things that I do:
Make odd noises when I urinate.
Turn my volume up to 10 when responding to a greeting at a store or restaurant.
Stare out the front door window when drinking something (I did this for an hour and a half once without realizing it).

That's not weird, that's just avoiding V.D.

I pick at the seams on my socks. You know the little spot about where your toes meet your foot, where the sewn seam ends on your sock? Yeah, I absent-mindedly pull and pick at that until the sock is ruined. All the time. I can't stop myself.

How is that odd?

I find it odd that people would use their bare hand to do that?

I also use my sleeve or elbow to lock-unlock bathroom stalls. That lock has to be the dirties place on the planet.

Up sh*t creek, without a paddle
I say "Beauty, eh" a lot even though I'm not Canadian. My wife hits me everytime.

I'm 6'7", wide shouldered and never fail to have the only 400lb sweaty woman sit next to me on the bus. EVERY TIME!!!

I think I might have dirty Tourettes. Especially when driving.

Just wash your hands afterwards if you can resist the urge to suck your fingers for that long. That way you aren't walking around with dookie and genital wart germs on your elbows.

I do that.

Whenever I can't remember how to spell a word I start the word with a capital letter.

I stare at my computer for long periods of time thinking about riding.

I shake my food (three little shakes) before I put it in my mouth to make sure it's not going to fall on my lap/clothes.

When washing my hands I make sure i have pulled out enough towels out of the dispenser so I don't have to touch the handle. I also use the paper towel to open the door and then chuck the towel into the trash after I have my foot in the door.

The man who invented motion sensor dispensers/ faucets/ flushers is a god amongst men.

I'm completly OCD about having anyone else do any work on my bikes, even if I know that they're a great mechanic. Hell no. I am the only person who does ANY wrenching on them.

In your pants
I shave from left to right, but only the hair under my chin and on my neck.

I walk with my arm in a funny position sometimes.

My nose whistles when I breath (90% of the time).

I light the lint from my socks on fire... while they're still on my feet. It looks cool.

I have a shower routine every morning.

#1- Shampoo and rinse
#2 - Conditioner (let sit while...)
#3 - Wash body
#4 - Rinse conditioner and THEN rinse body
#5 - Wash face without touching ANYTHING but the bottle of face wash, and the water.

Mythbusters found, that the Toilet seat itself, is one of the cleaner parts in teh bathroom, lowest amount of bacteria, by way of culture stimulation, studies found that people are sooo particular about public and personal hygene, that most are washing there hands before, and after using the restroom.

Personally I could care less what ends up on my hands, as long as I can wash up afterwords!!!!




Edit....I am going to regret that last statement arent I

Pretty sure I have neatness/organization OCD.

-Everything must be clean and in it's place
-Right angles
-Equal spacing
-Symmetry
-Even numbers (ie: volume on stereo)

All that applies to EVERYTHING. It actually gets really frustrating.:(

I carry Maalox (sp?) with me damn near everywhere I go. It was a habit I developed when I suffered from acid reflux for over a year. It's more like a security blanket than anything else now that it's cured (for the most part). My friends give me a hard time about it, but they understand.

I'm the exact opposite. I am such a slob I can destroy my house in minutes. I don't like it and have to spend a lot of time cleaning up after myself.

I do have to take a shower as soon as I wake up in the morning.

If I was forced to live with you, I would probably spend hours sitting in the shower stall crying. :rofl:

I've had an empty 5 gallon bucket sitting in my living room for almost 2 months. When I vacuum I just move it around. I have no idea why it is there and I have no desire for it to be any where else.

I used to feel the urge to shower as soon as I got up until I spent 6 days without a shower in New Orleans. I went through a lot of baby wipes, but it was a week before we could build a shower station (gravity feed system).

I was like a hippie just enjoying my natural "glow". I shower at some point during the day, but it's no longer a must because I can't get that funky on my own if I tried here.
