I read ingredients on stuff too, but usually only when I'm on the throne...

I understand computer theory better than most I know..  application of that theory is something completely different tho :wink:


--------------------
No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

Read ingredient lists on cans, packages, and containers of food.

Oh am I ever guilty of that one... :smirk:

A few of my own:

Dissassemble something, anything, then reassemble it...then dissassemble it again in case I missed anything.
Read warning labels on anything I come accross. You know...just in case the water-heater explodes it's good to know why it exploded :smirk:


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

me personally, I am a psychic and mindreader, so sometimes I like to go to the mall or Dairy Queen and tell random people what they are about to be thinking to see if they will try to think something else instead.

Us INTP types prefer conception over experience. Almost to the point of completely ignoring experience, actually.

Thus reading the manual is almost more fun than using the equipment :smirk:

I'll look at some object or some person and think, "That's me. I'm one with that object/person."

I think up word chains like:

El Salvador Dali Llama or

Mighty Duct Tape Worms.



I pee on cars when they are on the interstate and drive over bridges located on gravel roads.

I sometime just don't move and stare at things around me.

Much worse is when your gaze happens to be on another person. You aren't really seeing them (too deep in thought)...but they don't know that.

People, for some odd reason, don't like to be stared at :smirk:

Reading labels is a pretty big thing for me. I started doing it as a kid, reading shampoo bottles while on the can. Food labels too, of course. I want to know what goes in my body!

When I'm sitting and thinking i tend to bounce one leg up and down really fast or shake my hand. I also have a habit of booty shaking to the most non-booty-shakeable styles of music.

Speaking of moving around, that reminds me: When I listen to music by myself in my room, I can't JUST listen to it. I have to get involved in it in some way, whether it be dancing, singing along, or both. And often when I'm singing along, I'll pretend I'm holding a microphone and act like I'm singing it onstage.

I will usually start laughing, chuckling to myself when im talking to people.

Anthony, my co-worker, says its my "crazy laugh". josh always says something about it!

And i laugh more, lol,

Ill spill out random things, words i make up, like ambuwabawoo, and ill mess around with people using those words, usually when im messed up though.

I just usually just do the laugh...


ooo, and i like to make rhymes with whatever situation/mood im in, more like poetry though. There are so many i should have written down, probably could have made a good song... damnit! God damn loch ness monster!!!! (quoted from chef's dad (southpark))
