    Personally, I do not know if you really want to hear my strange tangents. Hehehee
    I would definitely like to have a tangent sampling.

    I particularly enjoyed CaptainChick's one... the first two lines turned me on and I was quite... well... then came the stool. Very nice. : )

    Yes, tangents, constantly.

    I've been asked numerous times what I am laughing at or smiling about, when I didn't realize I was actually laughing out loud about something I was thinking. Then the question actually stops the tangent process and I have to physically think about what go me to that point of laughing, but of course can't explain or just don't want to b/c I know I look like a nut.

    This happens all the time.
    I'm rarely able to listen to the teacher, since my mind is always somewhere else. The same thing happens when I read a boring book.

    i have problems with distracting thinking as well, but i tend to hyperfocus on one distracting idea instead of having many unrelated ones.

    Actually I dunno, I often feel like my mind is quite empty... No articulate thoughts. If you asked me what I was thinking, half the time I wouldn't know.

    Though it does happen that when I'm somewhere drifting into the realm of sleep, between waking and sleeping, that I have the strangest strangest thoughts... I have no idea where they come from or how they form. Often I forget what they are, but they are definitely interesting and they go off into the craziest tangents while they happen.

    same here, but i don't bunny hop from idea to idea like the Ne types, i just start of from a scratch of reality (or none at all) and build an entire single scenario, filled with people, conversations, enviroments, at some point in the scenario i start to laugh or gesticulate in reality just like the people in my scenario

    Sex, sex is very interesting, why does it even exist, perhaps two is better than one. Oh how I wish I were gay...

    Stool, the word stool reminds me of one of my favorite films which happens to be a mocumentary called Waiting for Guffman, sheer genius that movie is.

    I just had a cup of coffee and am now damn near bouncing off the walls.

    Typing takes too slow man, to get all these thoughts out.

    Thoughts without a thinker
    , it's a book I own, never read it, don't even know how I obtained it but my memory says it is by a man named M-something Epstein. I might be wrong, all I have is my memory and it freaks me out to think how my memory is a fallible and degenerating thing, yikes!!

    What was I thinking/writing about?? Oh yeah, sex. BALJADIOJOAFJSJS

    Fuck sex, sex ruins everything, so does estrogen, oh well.

    I think it is funny how men will agree to neuter their pets.

    The concept of neuticals makes me laugh.

    What would a man be sans his testicles, he would be incredibly different, incredibly different indeed.

    Nuts, I *don't* think they're pretty, women, however are... very pretty indeed.

    Peons with penises.

    Vaginae are weird

    People are weirder.

    I am weirdest.

    No I am not, you are weirder than I.. and yes this is a contest, a conquest.

    Veni,

    Vidi,

    Vici!

    You're having an internal thought process while you are trying to fall asleep and this leads to that and that leads to the thing over there, and then you shock the hell out of yourself when you are almost 90% asleep and jerk yourself awake thinking, "Wait a minute, how did I get to THAT?" Then you backtrack to the point where you almost started, and you start all over again.

    Yeah, eventually I put myself to sleep this way.

    Um, how did I come to think about this question, anyway??? :-P

    Hehehe...My Ne always scores the highest on any test. No matter what.

    I'm craaaaaaaaaaaaaazaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

    Anyway I think it's time to do a little more daydreaming so that I can tick off Mr. NT with more details on how I want to take over the world with my agenda.

    Muhahaha!
