    ITT we post things you do that you think no one else does.

    I take cereal and put it in a ziplock baggie, then open it slightly and just pour the cereal in my mouth. I hate having dirty or sticky fingers, so if I'm eating like...Cinnamon Toast Crunch or something nothing gets on my hands. Plus it saves a bowl, too. And it's easy to save for days!

    Whenever I'm thirsty and I pour myself a glass of something, I'll either take a quick drink from the container to temporarily quench my thirst or I'll take a drink from the glass and then just fill it up again.

    Whenever I'm browsing the forums and I see something I could make a witty reply to, sometimes I'll hold off as to not derail the thread/get warned for being a dick...again.

    Sometimes I do the same with threads, too. I'll begin making one and I'll have a good paragraph or two all ready to go, but then I reread it and I think "This would be shit. Not posting".

    Sometimes when I'm talking to friends or people I know I'll make witty comments that most gamers or techies would know, but the person I'm talking to would be oblivious.

    I'm sure I have more, but I can't think of them now..

    I don't eat the crust of Poptarts. (Edges not filled with filling.)
    I cut the ends off of hotdogs before I get them. (Dunno why.)
    I tend to pour myself a glass of milk, get a spoonful of cereal, and chase it down with a gulp of milk. (Makes it so I don't rush, and won't have soggy cereal.)

    Yeah but it'd be in completely unrelated areas where it'd most likely be removed, so I don't see the point in posting it.

    I do that too. Except the warn thing, I don't get warned since everyone nods in agreement with me anyway.



    I keep a blanket with me wherever I go when i'm home. Especially at my computer, I use it as an armrest cushion of sorts...and it's all soft and warm and shit.

    I cook hotdogs in a cup by running hot water into it until they aren't frozen anymore, because i'm lazy.


    Can't think of much else ATM.

    Haha. No way am I posting what only I do!!! :D

    Ah not only you do that. I also drink from the glass and refill. Not from the container though. How rude!


    If you're likely to be warned for being a dick, then your comment wasn't witty at all. It was sarcastic and unnecessary.

    I've done that. Not on here though.

    Know your audience. People who make geek jokes to people who wouldn't understand them, make other people (who do understand them) cringe. This is what makes you a geek, as opposed to a gamer or techie.

    I have dumped near-essay length replies on the 'temp more than once because I had something extremely thoughtful to say. It was usually because I felt that my advice, thoughts, or help would be lost on the person it was directed at, or would be more appropriate as a private comment that I wasn't willing to turn into a private discussion.

    Weirdo. But at least you're eating less crap with 1&2. You DO know that hot dogs are all pig lips & assholes, and the chicken parts that can't be processed into nuggets... right?
    :wub:

    That's cute, as long as I keep picturing you as a catgirl. (Or very childlike boy).

    .....

    As for me...

    I can't stand to use facial tissues, but I get rhinitis (nasal allergies) chronically, so I have to buy two types of toilet paper. I've never found a brand of facial tissues that actually absorb snot, but regular TP dries my nose to shreds. So I get the really expensive Charmin with moisturizers to use for my face, and the cheaper stuff for TP use.
    Some people with OCD do the chronic handwashing thing, but rather than that, I habitually clean all the things that I touch. It's not like people who are OCD about glossy surfaces -- I keep my mouse, keyboard, mousepad, all of my toiletry bottles, everything I touch daily has to be clean. But I only wash my hands when I use the bathroom, or if I'm grooming.. pretty much like a normal lady. (I know men often skip washing if it's just a leak, doesn't gross me out either, it's just a fact. But a woman who does the same is grosssssss....)

    ;A; I'll never eat another one again. I don't eat them unless there's nothing else to eat, or I'm too lazy for fix something else.

    Also, :lol:

    Away from civilization.
    I don't study or work without a distraction. Whether it be a tv, music, or trying to think up weird noises to make. I have to do something else along with what I'm supposed to be doing or I will have an even harder time focusing on whatever it is I'm doing. (Sounds weird, I know.)

    I won't eat meat unless they have toppings. I don't like the taste of sausages, chicken, burgers, pepperoni, no meat without more than one topping/seasoning. I do the same with ramen for some odd reason.

    I don't like hot dogs, but I like sausages.

    I can never sleep without a blanket. If it's hot, I'll stay awake until the room cools a little just so I can sleep underneath my blanket.


    Not quite sure if this qualifies since I don't do it, it just happens, but when I don't eat, I gain weight. When I do eat, I lose weight or it remains the same.

    Got another one. I love vaccuuming up crickets with my dustbuster. Cockroaches are too fast, but I've gotten good at crickets, which have always been a problem in my apartment building here.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    • I hold my breath around people I don't like so I don't inhale any of the air they've "polluted" with their presence. It's something I've been doing since I was in the 1st grade :P
    • Every time I see a squirrel in the park, running at full speed across the ground or vertically up a tree, or jumping from branch to branch, I wish I could shrink my body down and ride the squirrel like a horse. Every time.
    • I mute the TV when commercials come on.
    • When I get into a car that's been parked out in the hot sun, I roll down all the windows and drive for a minute, then roll them back up and then turn on the A/C. I believe it cools the car down much faster than just turning on the A/C as soon as you enter the car and leaving the windows up the entire time.

    Yes!
    I hold my breath when I am going up the stairs or an escalator and someone's ass is in my face. Just in case.

    • When nobody is home, I blast music and pretend I'm the lead vocalist of a band, despite my terrible singing. Headbangs included.
    • After sinking my teeth into a video game, I pretend to be the protagonist and roleplay around the house. Sound effects include...
    • I need to tell my mother that I'm going to take a shower. Once, when I was ten, my mom thought I was lost, and called the police. I was taking a shower the whole time...

    I always listen to classical music, but exclusively listen to heavy metal music every time I do math because I calculate faster.

    I have an inexplicable urge to wash my hands every time they become even slightly dirty/oily/sweaty/dusty/sticky. Even after taking a leak. With soap.

    I study and research every single thought in my head, literally. And everything thing I study, I get a massive urge to share with people.
    If I see a plant, I must know how what it feels like, so I poke it.

    - Even if I'm hungry and walk near a shop, I don't go inside, because I'm too shy. I prefer staying hungry than socializing.
    It's an ill-shyness (or more social phobia).
    But I'm sure there are people even more ill, like not going out of their home at all.

    - At my work, I can answer phone calls, but I never initiate calls myself. I don't like calling people, but people calling me it's fine (another social phobia thing).

    - My brain's full of music. I'm always humming, from waking up to sleeping (and sometime even while starting sleeping I still heard music in my heads!)
    It can even be the same song in loop all day long.


    Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one :P
    I didn't find anything I really think I'm the only one doing.
