      I see violent and sexually explicit images of people I know in my head.

      Mine are:
      - I never drink 'old' water, if it's been left for a couple of hours I can't drink it, it just seems dirty or something.

      - I like to let my toast cool down before I put butter on it.

      - I have to get out of the bath before I pull the plug cause for some reason I feel like it sucks the energy out of you (weird I know)

      - And as a child I used to whisper sentences before repeating them louder just to check I was about to say it right

      Whoah this thread makes you realise how much of a freak you are

      I'm ambidextrous but I prefer to write with my right hand and do most other things with my left hand. The only time I use both hands is in sports i.e. badminton, tennis.

      When I go up/down the stairs I have to start with my right foot.

      I have to have tic tacs, smarties, skittles etc in pairs.

      Cheese and ketchup sandwiches, anyone? :p:

      I like my chilli sauce and put it in pretty much everything - I even carry a tiny bottle with me for when I have food out which I get mercilessly teased for

      Apparently I have weird hands - my fingers bend in odd directions and are seriously wonky.

      I used to do that when I was learning how to take tablets...

      I was 12.
      It's how I learnt to take tablets too. And i just never changed onto the "normal" way. But it's more common than i thought. I know a few people who take them the same way I do

        I eat with my fork in my right hand and the knife in my left. Other people I know tend to hold them the other way round. I guess I like to claw at my food like a child rather than cut it neatly.
        Ha! I thought I was alone!

        One thing I usually do unconsciously is that I copy how people talk as I talk to them. Not as in their accent, but usually the rhythm of their speech and their mannerisms.

        Edit: Oh I also usually do an involuntary hiccup/burp hybrid at least once a day. I think it is hereditary as most of my mum's family do it too.

          Literally out loud whilst I am talking to them. Usually most people don't notice it, but I have a lot of friends who are learning English as a foreign language and they notice! I have to concentrate to return to my own unique way of talking.

          I dunno, perhaps it is related to people doing complementary body language if they like or respect someone.

            Yeah loads of people say that
            "i cant be asked"
            when they should be saying "i cant be arsed"
            This thread has confused me SO MUCH. I have NEVER heard anyone say "can't be asked" instead of "can't be arsed". Is it meant to be Southerners who say "can't be asked" because the ones I know don't. And nobody up north says it.

            How does "can't be asked" even make sense??

            :confused: some people are weird.

            Who the hell says "Can't be asked"? It makes no sense! Clearly you can be asked because I JUST ASKED YOU. It's "Can't be arsed", fool! :rant:

            Sigh.
