How much is there to do on a bus? And it seems it was one hella long ride, if he forgot his comics or whatever what is he supposed to do? That ride took approximately 5 hours, and was one of the shortest we took during our trip. The longest was 18 hours. Looking out the window is the best thing to ...

A couple of days ago I was traveling with my girlfriend on a bus. It was a double decker, and we sat in the first row on the upper deck, so we could look at the road through the windshield. When the bus departed my girlfriend started reading a book, while I occuppied myself by reading the signs on t...

The threads about AQ scores and "I just got my DX!", etc. are practical to a point, as a lot of docs don't know enough about AS and comparing your score/problems/DX with other people is one way of figuring out the truth of your situation. The problem with those threads is that they become strangely...

magic -- that is great that you have found someone! I am curious about your train timetables. See, I can easily understand how you like monologizing on theoretical physics, but when you are monologizing on train timetables, what do you say? What IS there to say about train timetables? Well :), when...

No clue how to date, flirt. etc. 6. Not interested in typical smalltalk topics. 7. Likes monologizing on topics such as theoretica...

Do you realize that by saying this, you are implicating the original poster as being shallow? Callista, thanks for coming to my defense, but I was not offended at all. My post was intended to make others smile and thus the humorous reply made by NeantHumain was welcome and very much in line with th...

After using the restroom my hands do not feel right, and the only way to correct this is to wash them with soap. After that I can't touch the bathroom door with my hands, so either I use a paper towel, or, if these are not available, I move the door handle with my elbow.

Hey, I had a haircut today and requested a different hair style, and now I have it! This is the first time I have changed my hair style in the recorded history. Indeed, on my 1st grade class picture my hair was basically the same as 27 years later. I would have the hair cut short, and then it would ...

Sorry, but fears like heights are a normal human thing. It depends. If you have to jump over a rock crevice 300 feet deep, knowing that if you slip, you'll die, then a fear is a very healthy thing. If you are standing perfectly safe on a balcony and and hold on to the guard rail in horror, then thi...

I used to have a strong fear of heights. At the same time I liked hiking and climbing mountains. So I was forcing myself up and down rocky outcrops and across rock walls, usually trembling and crying of fear. Not only I had to battle the fear but also embarrassment if any onlookers were present ("I ...
