    Guilty.

    Just thought of some more

    • I must pee in the seond from the end urinal.
    • I must put glasses in the middle of a coaster, and drink out of exactly the same point on the rim every time.
    • I must put batteries facing outwards.
    • I must have everything perfectly lined up (even in shops).
    • When getting a drink of water, I always run the tap for a second beforehand.
    • When I coil up cables, they must not be twisted.
    • If I say something wrong I used to have to say it again to "cancel" it, and then say the right thing. (Don't do that much any more)
    • Everything must be placed at right angles to everything else.
    • Ribbon cables must be folded at right angles, and must lie perfectly flat, ie. not twisted.

    That's all I can think of right now.

    I'll always shove them in randomly, then rotate them round in their slots until they're in line.

    Another thing I do (which I never noticed until my friends pointed it out) is when making a squash drink (Ribena etc.), pour the concentrate in first and lift the glass up so my eye-level is level with the liquid, then tap the last drop or two off the bottle before adding the water. Miss any of that and it just doesn't taste right. Crazy.

    You're all nuts.

    I don't have many of those things. I used to only get up on a multiple of 5 minutes but nowadays I seem to just lie around pressing snooze until I suddenly find myself out of bed. It's totally random and it's strange because I usually don't consciously make the decision to get up.

    However, when setting an alarm it will always have to be at a multiple of 5 minutes. Setting your alarm for 8.07? That would be just madness. :lol:

    I don't think I have any other of these kinds of foibles. Am I the only "normal" one?

    I'm kinda scared by half of these... sounds like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

    The ONLY one i am guilty of is phone in left pocket.. wallet in right.. keys in back right.. but i can easilly change and not feel "odd".

    No, but I must always open crisp packets (and tins) at the top, never upsidedown.

    Well he knew that anyway because the entire existance of this site is due to the fact that we like to take high speed rotating blades to rather expensive, and quite often rare, pc components. ;)

    I actually put 2 of these on my ears once in the pub, and whilst taking a leak someone actually said to me "you do know you have a crisp packet on your ear?"











    of course not, it must have just fallen on my ear

    edit: and on the subject of pocket habits - mine have to be "balanced", so if I decide not to take my phone out (usually leaving everything else in left pockets) I must move something across to the other side.
