    What are some interesting and weird things about you?

    Uh let's see, this one's kind of embarrassing actually. I think I might have a slight driving phobia. I don't know if that's actually a thing or not.

    Everytime someone has tried to teach me, I become extremely paranoid, can't concentrate and have this horrible whooshing/buzzing sound in my skull. I once burst into tears when my boyfriend handed me the wheel and I got scared and pulled over.

    I've had bizzarre nightmares centered solely on driving.

    I'd rather walk or pay gas money to others to drive.

    I can hold a 4 x 8 piece of sheetrock up off the ground with my teeth.

    I also have a phobia of driving but that's because of the car crash that nearly killed me.

    For 10 years I've had dreams of this woman who I have no idea who she is but she told me she is my wife.

    I can change my voice a lot and can do plenty of impressions in addition to my own voices. Jigglypuff is my favorite.

    One time, I saved a tree frog from potentially getting flushed down a toilet by sticking my hand in that sh*t-filled potty!

    I can hold my breath for five minutes.

    I can see well in the night time but cannot read roadsigns because I have tons of light receptors but shitty visual acuity.

    I didn’t naturally have a full puberty and had to see a doctor about that.

    When I was a child, before my pelvis widened a bunch, I could fit through any gap as big as my skull.

    I did this by voluntarily dislocating my shoulders and any other joint that got in the way.

    I could do the above because I was born with chronically loose joints and some kind of syndrome I can’t remember how to spell.

    I can take extreme amounts of cold, but my body falters and shuts down very quickly when overheated.

    I have this weird thing about natural patterns. Leaves, termite-eaten wood, dried flaking mud, unusual rocks, forming bubbles, anything like that where I find it hard to pull myself away because they're just so fascinating to me.

    Did sentience come with a pair of opposable thumbs?

    In the UK it's illegal to give a child under 5 alcohol unless advised / prescribed by a doctor - I was prescribed wine (for teething, I think... not sure on that detail)


    Long before then, at around 6 months old, I was passed around a pub full of strangers in Wales and... slept very well that night ;)

    I have EDS, which means I am "double jointed" or in other words my body can contort further than the average but not as much as trained contortionist,

    I have borderline zero sense of smell so i am deathly afraid of electronics overheating in my sleep and burning my house down with me in it,

    I get migraines from bad weather and can tell if it will rain soon and how badly depending on how bad my migraine is,

    My left eyebrow has a significant upward curve to it, enough that I always look like an inquisitive super villain. Since I was born, the doctors told my mother that it was a birth defect, like she must have done something to cause it. One of the funniest explanations was that, while I was in the womb, I laid against her pelvic bone and my eyebrow just formed this way during development.

    The funny part is that my second born has the exact same eyebrow. When we asked a doctor about it after he was born, they said it was clearly a genetic trait. Turns out, my mother's dad had the exact same eyebrow.

    Yep... apparently, my parents were advised to rub wine on my gums (which is why I think it was for teething).

    In Wales, we'd joined a group of my dad's air cadet friends in the pub, and while dad was at the bar, I got passed around all the cadets wanting to gawk at the little baby. Once I got to the end of that group, I got passed around the rest of the bar. Being an inquisitive baby, I'd reach for whatever was on the table in front of me and... some of the kindly strangers obliged me with sips from their drinks. This was in the late 70's... different times, eh? :)

    My eyes can track rapidly moving objects without moving my eyes.
