My personal record for bathing whilst wearing my socks is 7m 31s. It was set in 1990.

Anywho, I once broke my clavicle while playing (American) football, and scored two touchdowns afterwards.

And I am worth 2K monies.

Other weird (and real) facts about me are that I have ankyloglossia (a too short lingual frenulum), meaning I can't poke my tongue out normally. Also, the normal angle of my feet in a relaxed position is angled about 30 degrees outward.

My feet are angled slightly inward. Doctor once told me it's called "Pigeon Feet". I don't really have any problems caused by it though.

EDIT: Changed "Chicken Feet" to "Pigeon Feet"

I haven't measured any angles, but my feet point outwards too.
I also have a syndrome! \o/

I can't aim a pistol with my glasses on (can't focus on the front sight). I've never finished writing a game, and I've been programming for years... though that probably wouldn't be considered uncommon around here :).

It went away however after I stopped stressing out.

I hate feet... Most people have ugly feet (men in particular).
I also never use public bathrooms, but I don't think that's too weird. I just can't deal with all the smells and the dirt.

My feet point outward as well. It's easy to tell my footprints apart from others because of it.

Anyway, my right index finger is slightly shorter than my left index finger because I nearly cut off the tip of it when I was a kid. And I have this weird dent on the back of my head I assume is not even normal.

I have what I consider to be an "obsessive-compulsion". It is not medically confirmed, however.

For example, my family used to have a woodstove with an automatic damper. To 'rev' it, or get it burning well, we would open the ashpan door to allow more air to be pulled in. Whenever I was the last one awake I would check it for the night, go up to bed, lay there for 5 minutes and wonder if I closed the door or that the woodstove was generally safe for the night... And for the sake of not waking up in a fiery blaze, I would go check it again, only to confirm my competence in checking it the first time.

This same "compulsion" as I think of it has led me to reformat an operating system installation days after the original install because a single application failed to install and I'm not sure if ALL of the changes made during the installation were backed out... The system feels unpure to me and it drives me to start from scratch...

I could give a million examples... ::)

EDIT

I can second the public washroom thing. There are rules to be followed in the mens' room, such as "splash-zones" and planned retreat paths (you know, in case a 400 lb ex-con comes in after you straight from a prison release), and many public washrooms just assume guys are comfortable sharing the experiences in them by making urinals 1/2" apart or putting urinals directly beside stalls/sinks... I also do not like washrooms that are not sound proof... When you can hear women in the next room that is a very discomforting thing when you're doing your "business"...

I would appreciate public washrooms designed so that each stall/urinal was contained in a lockable, sound-proof enclosure... ::)

In any case, I generally only use public washrooms when I have to - and usually only when they are otherwise empty.

I'm at GDC.

I can move my eyes independently. (can't go outside of parallel like a lizard, though)

Uh... I don't like pizza...

The end?

I can't think of anything unusual about me. I'm perfectly normal. What I don't understand though, is why everyone else is so weird. I mean I don't know one single normal person in the whole world. Everyone is just so... I don't know... weird.
