What are 5 useless facts about you?

Here's mine:

  1. I use charcoal toothpaste. Yes, it's black.
  2. I'm attracted to guys but I prefer intimacy with women.
  3. Traveled across the country by myself, slept in hotels and Airbnb and was the best year of my life.
  4. I can get loaded on cheap wine very easily. Lightweight.
  5. I sometimes wear wigs.

  1. I am the 4th out of six children, first daughter. It was like the folks had a family of boys then a family of girls.

  2. Of my 5 siblings, one has been married to the same person for over 30 years, one is a felon, one is a deadbeat dad and we have no idea where he is. One is a disabled vet, one is junkyard dog mean, and then there's me.

  3. I make my own toothpaste (yes, mine has charcoal in it) and make my own deodorant, soap, lip balm, and other personal care items.

  4. I cannot give blood in the US and haven't been able to for over 25 years. I lived in Germany in the 80s, and ate German cooked foods. I could be a carrier of Cruezfeldt Jakob disease, an acute spongiform encephalopahty. IOW mad cow. The baby I gave birth to in Germany CAN give blood in the US. Not fair. And if it is going to affect me it is going to start any time now.

  5. My dad's baby brother married my mom's baby sister. So I had a double aunt and uncle and 2 double cousins.

@Redcupcoffee I sold some of the handmade items on Etsy for a while. I sold some, but mostly scaled back with current job. After I retire I may get back to that.

  1. My nose is crooked.
  2. My penis is crooked.
  3. My scruples are crooked.

  5. I think lists are crooked.

haha

@Hominid I love a crooked sense of humor. No comment on the rest. Haha

1 I have a walking stick that was crafted by beavers.
2. I was hospitalized after being hit with a wiffleball.
3. I was “Rudy’s” backup on our high school football team.
4. The Chicago Tribune published a true story I submitted about finding a live snake in my toilet tank.
5. One of my ears is lower than the other one.

@Redcupcoffee I THINK it happened like this: I was living by myself on the edge of a small town. I was washing sheets, and took the mattress cover out to the deck and hung it over the railing to freshen a bit. I left it out there all day, and later I dragged it through the kitchen and hallway to the bedroom and just tossed it on the bed. When I went back into the kitchen I noticed a snakeskin. I did not think much of it because I thought maybe the snake had used the mattress cover to help scrape off its dead skin. I did not make the bed right away, and according to this theory (and it's the only one I thought of) the snake must have been having a cozy snooze in one of the corners that was hanging toward the ground, and when I dragged it in it just went along for the ride and ended up on the bed without me seeing it.

I am not sure how long after this, maybe a few days or a week(?) I went into the bathroom and heard the toilet running. When I lifted the top off the toilet tank to have a look, there was this little reptilian face looking at me like "how did I get in here, and can you help get me out?" Unfortunately, one of my phobias is an irrational fear of snakes, even garter snakes which I figured this one probably was. A friend got it out for me and released it in the backyard. It did not look worse for the wear, except what normally would've been darker coloring looked "washed out." Maybe snakes can smell water? Anyway, the toilet is close to the wall where a towel was hanging. It must've somehow slithered up the towel and into the toilet bowl. Then in an attempt to get out, it went underwater and slipped by the rubber flapper and ended up trapped in the toilet tank. The story has a happy ending for the snake. A week or so later, I saw a garter snake with the same lighter-than-usual coloring.That is my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hmm… five useless facts about me. Well, here goes:

  1. I can wiggle my ears, which is both useless information and a useless ability.
  2. I've never been outside the U.S., despite living really close to the Canadian border.
  3. I've never flown in an airplane.
  4. I live in a winter wonderland, and I hate snow.
  5. I have approximately 50 first cousins on my father's side.

Not true! My Dad could wiggle his ears and it entertained all of us!

@silvereyes Yeah, the sides meet up at the top forming a tube of sorts. I can wiggle my ears independently of each other, if I concentrate a little.

@Redcupcoffee Neither, really. I've just never had anyplace to go (except college, but I had no money for airfare so I took Greyhound instead).

@silvereyes And I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue… ladies… 😉

@SKDeitch Indeed, he's one of ten. 🙂

Get in your car and drive now to Canada. Life's too short.

  1. I taught myself to read electrical schematics. I found a bunch of television electrical schematic diagrams in a abandoned closet at my house when I was 10 years old. I copied the symbols on them and figured out what they meant by going to the local library. Oddly, we didn't even have a television, nor did I ever figure out why we had them. Also taught myself basic electronics from books.

  2. The house I grew up in was built almost entirely by my father, except for the chimney and oil furnace in the center of the house. The brick mason who built it told my father that it would outlast the house. He was wrong. The house lasted at least 12 more years than the chimney. The house was huge, it started out as a normal house, and then dad built another house around the first one, and adding an extra floor, and a small indoor basket ball court approximately a half court. Never got other than a cement floor. Served mostly as storage and shop area for projects.

  3. My first ten-speed bike was from Sears. It came in a large box, completely un-assembled. Dad bought it and gave me one, and my brother one. We were barely big enough to ride them, and Dad refused to help us put them together. He said we needed to figure it out ourselves. Brother and I put them together and had them for years.

  4. Growing up we had at various times the following animals or plants. chickens, geese, pigs, pigeons, guinea pigs, hamsters, iguanas, tropical fish, parakeets, amazon parrots, African grey parrots, cockatoos, cockatiels , finches, rabbits, goats, horses, Shetland ponies, cattle, dogs, cats, and African violets. Most of them lived in the house, if smaller than a dog, except for rabbits, they lived outside (we had 400) My first conversation with my wife was regarding the statement that I did not ever want pets.

  5. My brother and I dissected crawdads that we caught in a local stream and figured out how to operate the detached claws with a battery and coil apparatus. We also caught and collected spiders and held tournaments with them. Winners were kept in aquariums (minus water) and fed flies we captured. Perhaps I might not be all that benevolent a god after all.

Haha! #5 makes me sound a bit like a psychopath! I swear I am not.

@Redcupcoffee I also discovered, probably as you did, that it is often much harder to fix them, than it is to take them apart!

I was a choir boy, from age 10 to 12, hey I got paid for it.

I love iced coffee.

There are 2 big dents in my head from acci''dents''

I have had a fuzzy brain since I was 5 years old. That was after I acquired my first dent.

My dry sense of humour, often gets me into trouble.

@Redcupcoffee There is a bit of a story with both of the ones you picked out. Maybe I will tell them here one day. The brain thing, it literally feels fuzzy. Not so much these days, but I felt withdrawn for many years, finding it hard to concentrate and learn a school.

@ RedcupcoffeeI wouldn't put your 2 and 3 in the useless basket.

  1. I have 4 more ribs than most people (I have 28)
  2. I have 2 sets of most of my adult teeth triples for canine teeth so lots removed, and nearing 60, I still have heaps.
  3. my floating ribs have been so badly smashed so many times they are no longer individual ribs but form floating plates, no longer painful thankfully.
  4. I an rhesus negative blood type but most tests show rhesus positive due to weird extra things in my blood.
  5. I am a symbiot (we all are if we include the flora in our gut) due to an infection I got when I was 12 and have a marine bacteria in me (see weird thing 4) {I think this is how parasites evolved, they got inside us and survived, mine doesn't do me any harm any more as far as I know, has issues at the entry site for a few years, good result is my immune system is in overdrive fro other infections now}

@Akfishlady apparently 1 in about 500 have an extra set near the neck, less than that have an extra set of floating ribs, I have both. and in less than an hour I am off to the doctor re busted shoulders, he will order xrays, and next week call my in all excited to tell me. I have only been to him when I wanted something specific, he has never taken blood pressure pulse or anything. so he is in for a shock, Fun and fascinating, the teeth were a problem when younger, maybe an advantage now, ribs I havent found any advantage in.

So you are like a shark. When the front teeth wear out the second row moves forward to replace the first?

@FrayedBear actually yes, almost. The extra s stay below the gum, if I get one taken out, the spare under it pushes up. Not quite as good as a shark, I only have 2 spare eye teeth left, and am on the 3rd set of molars and pre molars. No wisdom teeth yet, no wisdom I guess.

@Rugglesby that is v. Useful. Envious.

  4. Did a charity performance of 'Three Little Maids From School' (from Gilbert and Sullivan's 'The Mikado' ) in front of an audience of 800, with two other male friends. We were all dressed as schoolgirls - and one of us had a beard. I was 'Yum-Yum', by the way.

  5. I have a toxic reaction to alcohol. ANY alcohol, and I get very ill very quickly. Searing headache, shivering and violently heaving my guts out within 15 minutes - and a single glass of wine is CERTAINLY enough to bring out the effect.

@Redcupcoffee ... It came on slowly during 2000 and 2001 - so I was able to see in the new millenium with some booze, but by the time another two years had passed I just couldn't drink any more.

My last ever drink was a single glass of champagne at my niece's 21st birthday party in early 2002. I had not drunk alcohol for about 6 months and thought 'I'm sure ONE glass of champagne on my niece's birthday will be OK'.

It turned out to be a very bad 'experiment' to do - and for the second half of the cellebration I was sitting in a corner with my hands pressed against my temples and my eyes closed, trying not to vomit, and thinking 'Why the HELL was I so bloody stupid?'

Never again.

Thank you @Redcupcoffee ... And I'm fine if I don't drink. Simple as that ... So 'enforced tee-total' for me!
