Ok, so I've been playing the piano for eight years, and I noticed that I do better with some pianos than with others, and I think it has to do with me forming emotional attachments to certain pianos. For example, I played on a piano in a church a few days ago for the first time, and I sort of connec...

When I was little I would stare directly into people's eyes for extended periods of time, mostly because I didn't really know what else to do. Then my mom taught me that it made people uncomfortable, and since then my eye contact has been really awkward. I now just usually look at people's eyebrows ...

When reading the symptoms I never really knew what was meant by non-verbal communication. I did some research on it though (like, five seconds ago) and it seems to basically come down to facial expressions, gestures (pointing/waving hands), tone of voice, pitch, volume, etc, posture/body language, p...

My over/under exaggerations, comparisons, and sarcasm basically make up my humor. Along with a few bad puns, that even I sometimes don't laugh at (I laugh at all my own jokes). Other people just seem to laugh at my blunt comments (I only occasionally get why they're funny). I guess people see my com...

I'm going through much of the same thing that you are, except I'm probably a bit younger. I'm not formally diagnosed yet, but I'm trying to be. It really wouldn't help me at all, but I'm mostly doing it for my mother. My relationship with her is... difficult. It's probably better than it is with the...

I have mild face blindness. The more attractive a face is the less I'll remember it. Models all look the same to me. Attractive faces don't usually have any features that make them very unique. I can recognize some celebrities, but it usually takes a while, and I know them more by their voices than ...

Whenever I meet or see people sometimes I'll associate them with something. Frequently it's a color, like red, gray, blue, etc. I also sometimes give nicknames to people (when I don't know their name). Like I know two boys as tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum (they look similar and they're always together...

I've been many different people in my dreams. I've been a little girl with blonde hair in braids, a ten year old boy, a forty year old man, a teenage girl, a teenage boy, a younger version of myself, an older version of myself, a dog, an angel, and interstingly enough a claymation looking boy who lo...

Lets see if I can remember the three reasons people think others are wrong...
They think the other person:
1. has low intelligence.
2. hasn't been presented with all the facts, and therefore makes the wrong decision.
3. has been presented with all the facts, but are just sadistic.

The biggest problem I have with Christianity is original sin, how Eve ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge, and that sin was so great it was passed down to everyone? I never understood how acquiring knowledge was a sin. I guess it was technically supposed to be disobeying God, but God was asking...

I'm suprised at the number of people who are against abortion. A fetus is basically a parasite to a womans body, if she doesn't want to carry it, she shouldn't be forced to. A woman's body can ungergo major changes during pregnancy, which can sometimes be very dramatic, especially in a young girl. B...

I feel like I'm awkwardly posting something in the midddle of an argument and this really has nothing to do with anything but... I heard a few years ago that you're more likely to be killed by a champaine cork than by a spider bite (I don't actually know if that's true, but I'm assuming that when so...

I hate the face I make when I'm about to sneeze, but then never do. It lasts for a good ten seconds or so too. I heard that holding your tounge against the roof of your mouth helps you not to sneeze. I actually wiggle my nose (like the lady on Bewitched) to stop myself from sneezing. I don't think a...

Of course not. Women only talk to hear themselves talk, if she was deaf there would be no point. Women don't need to speak their minds in forests alone anyway, if she wants to speak and not be heard she just needs to speak to a man (who knows if they're listening).

So, how do you sneeze?
I usually sneeze twice in a row and I make the classic "achoo" sound. I've heard people that sneeze, like, ten times in a row, really quiet sneezing, explosive sneezing, etc. Post anything you want about sneezing.

Thanks :D
Maybe I should color it yellow? But then I might mess it up.
The problem with painting roses. What if I lose my head?
Penny pervasively paints primroses primarily with punctuality. Say that 5 times fast.
