If I'm walking down the road, or just anywhere in general, I make 100% sure I don't step on any of the lines or cracks, and if there's a line on the side of the side walk but not the whole thing I imagine it extended across the whole thing and make sure I don't step there.
And if I do it makes me feel really upset, not angry or sad, just upset that I couldn't do it.
My friends occasionally see me near skipping around on the sidewalks avoiding these lines and question me about it like I'm insane
I have a friend who is the same way. I used to question why he walked down the hallway like he was drunk... Until he explained that he cannot stand stepping on the lines in the tiles... Shame for him our tiles are arranged decoratively and not that easy to just walk a straight line and still avoid lines...
I will tap on my thumb with my index finger. I will tap once on the top then below that I will tap twice on the sides, then below that I will tap three times and do that two more times (so it will be in the shape of a cross). I have been doing this since I was like 14 and I cant stop, it doesn't hinder me in anyway but people will see me doing it and ask, then I get crazy looks lol.
"I put the fires out."
"you made them worse."
I click the tooth just one right of my right front tooth when listening to music, and create polyrhythms.
When no one is around, I will pick up any objects that have straight edges and pretend im aiming down it as if it had sights like a gun and pretend to shoot things I can see.
I pick a random chance with anything and make a bet with myself that if 'x' does/is 'y', something is destined to happen a certain way. Specific example: if I am about to load up someone's facebook page that I like who isn't particularly active on fb, I will predict that if she has any new news in her newsfeed, she is right for me. It is pointless and stupid but I do this with a lot of things. I call it daisy-picking syndrome.
I often get urges to run head on into cars on a two-lane road.
Whenever I'm in class, I'm often preoccupied by the thought of being able to stop time and perform sexual acts on the girls I deem attractive in that class. Or stop time and just go around fucking shit up to see what happens. I take this time to consider what would happen if I moved someone who is frozen in time and what kind of effect that would have on their bodies when time returned to normal again. Would their bodies be traumatized? would they feel it/remember something? Since there was a period where there was no time I usually conclude they wouldn't and I would basically be some extra-dimensional element tampering with an event that doesn't exist in time. (I know everyone has done this one though)
When I'm riding in a car or on the bus, I focus on a spec on the window and make it leap over objects passing by outside (e.g. signs, people, cars, trees, fences and telephone lines) by adjusting my line of sight. The aim of the game seems to be preventing my little dot from colliding with the obstacles.
Me too. This is unbelievable. I think i can relate to half of everyones quirks.
But I live in a rural area. And when I'm driving around I count cars until I get to 5, then start over. Big trucks count twice. I also read the numbers on license plates and signs to see what they are divisible by if I add them all up.
This like this fascinate me, especially the rules that people make up for themselves. I know a guy (we have mutual friends, although I'd not really call him a friend... more like an acquaintance) who once described to me an internal sort of alphabet rule set. He had certain letters that "went together," like I think L and M went together... I can't remember any other sets, but I remember that it seemed totally random, not related to placement in the alphabet, type of sound, etc. Anyway he said when he saw a word, he automatically would put the letters into these categories, and he didn't like it when letters from different categories were next to each other in the word. Very interesting.
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
