    Not sure how well this thread will do or if it's been done before but here goes. Kinda self explanatory just a random fact about your self, it could be anything as long as it's true.


    For example I'll start....


    My chest hair grows patchy. :sigh:

    Hey I forgot I could do that too!! Just remembered, thanks for reminding me. I do it by going cross-eyed so hard that my eyes go brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr left to right if that makes sense ha ha.

    I've got another one. I can wrap my either of my arms all the way around the back of my head and round the front to touch the ear on the same side, so my right arm round the back, under my neck and touch my right ear. Freaks people out quite a lot.

    Makes perfect sense! Apparently it's something to do with strong eye muscles, or at least that's what I remember one of my teachers telling me about 20 years ago. I just tried looking it up to see if it has a name but I can only find a disorder called 'strabismus', which is an involuntary action rather than controlled like we can do. Either way, don't do it too much - it can damage things!
    That's pretty weird! I'm guessing you must have a thin and flexible build?

    I can do that too, though not due to a car crash, just due to doing loads of stretching when I was younger. Wonderful for making people feel icky when the room is silent.

    When I was 16 I weighted 285lbs, and was horribly inactive (nearly as round as I was tall). I'm now 25 and weigh 155lbs, doing a minimum of an hour of strength and endurance training every day on and off the bike. So I'm basically bone and muscle with maybe about 6-7% body fat.

    After all this, you know what I've realised? When I rub my hands over my legs I can feel the muscle tissue beneath the skin and it feels really icky. Feeling and seeing my bone structure as I now can doesn't bother me, but the texture of my muscles under my skin bothers me for some reason.

    Strange, right?

    I lost 30 kgs (66lbs) last year without changing diet and exercise.. 97kg (213lb) => 67 kg (147lb) in 3 months without any concious effort.. stress may have contributed though. Still hovering around 72-75kg (160-165lb ) which is nice.

    I get up at 5AM and do an and a half of work before going to the day job an hour early. Then I go home after 10+ hours there, and work for another hour.
    What's strange about that? I enjoy the extra hours, and get things done that way. Both in my freelance work, as well as at my day job.

    Everyone has a natural talent and mine is art (not modern at but stuff like live portraits and landscapes)
    But do not do it as the only rich artists are dead ones.

    I used to swim cor my country at a world class level. And when I was at my peak I could do 100m in just 52 seconds, roughly a second off the world record pace and I was only 18.
