Something about yourself a stranger would never think about you if walking down the street?

    You wouldn't guess I like to tell stories.
    For example:
    While in the Washington National Cathedral sporting slacks, a button down, and a tie,
    I spied a lone "wood burning" looking tourist in a dark corner counting his money.
    I approached him with a gentle smile and asked if he would like to make a contribution to the Cathedral.
    After he handed me a twenty, I raised my hand up and made the sign of the cross over him and mumbled
    something about his prayers will be answered. He got all humble and weepy like he just had a miracle
    happen to him or something and I thought, "Damn. I gotta ask for more money next time." :lol:

    It doesn't come up in conversation so often- especially outside of work, but I guess people are surprised to find out that I have a PhD in chemistry. I don't say it here to brag, and I suppose I don't say it much at all because I don't think it matters 99% of the time. My wife says that I should use it more often- signing things etc, but that's for MD's and jackasses. (although I have used the name "Dr. Spankenstein" as a screen name before- that was for the name reference, not the degree)

    lol, My back issues started at the Memphis in May in 2004. Beer cooler I thought I pulled the plug on. Grab both handles and went throw it in the back of the truck. The only thing that moved was my back! :cheese: Thank God for heated seats on the 5-1/2 hour drive home.

    This place is a fantastic place to give me bad and evil ideas . . . I never knew about sky lanterns until I read about them here . . . and two weeks ago I ordered some and set them aloft . . . still wondering if anyone thought the UFOs were landing in downtown Unity.

    I'm not sure how to answer this question, because I don't think like other people, so I have a hard time thinking what they would be thinking.

    It also depends a lot on the day you catch me. Some days I look like a 20 something gym rat, some days I look like a nerdy tech guy, others I look like I pretty dirty and rural (most comfortable looking this way). All of them are true....except for being 20 something....I'm 30 but look like I'm 23ish.

    I can't answer the question. I can't read people....

    I am into punk rock. I used to be really into punk rock and NY hardcore music. I was very anti establishment. I have a very seedy past with a police record to show for it. But that was a long time ago and now even my closest friends hardly believe me. Every once in a while my wife and I will run into someone and some terrible story will come out. I mean now I'm a very devoted family man. Clean cut. I worked for a long time as a kids pastor at a church. Its hilarious because no one would ever expect that kind of stuff from me. But the truth is I have a violent and criminal past. Things have changed significantly.

    Thats another one about myself i didn't realize.
    Since a kid i have been into real heavy music. Slayer, Metallica, Motorhead etc.
    I like a lot of different music now but still rock out. Most people would take me as a Country fan just by my looks and activities.

    That I was a body double for porn stars. Fortunately only the stars were listed in the credits.

    RIP Marilyn. It was fun.

    Walking down the street or riding down the road on my bicycle most folks would probably be surprised to learn I was once crippled.

    Most people would probably never think I once killed a man just to watch him die.
