Can anyone answer any of these questions? It doesn't have to be all of them, even just one would be helpful. Thanks.

1. When you hear the blood in your ears, is that normal? I'm assuming it is but I just wanted to check that everyone gets that. And is it normal for it to be louder sometimes, or louder in one ear?

i wouldn't say it is, i don't

2. Why did I see my veins more clearly in my left arm and both of my hands today than usual? Does this just randomly happen to people now and then?

it depends alot on circulation and it can fluctuate form time to time

3. I am getting wisdom teeth and I keep biting my mouth accidentally at the back because I'm not used to it. Will this stop or do I have too many teeth in my mouth or something?

i can't answer that one because i have an unusual jaw, i have wide gaps in my teeth (so wide i don't need to floss regularly) and i still have my milk teeth at the age of 17

please if you get the answer to this TELL ME!! !!
i am sick of being single and every time i ask my mates what to talk about when talking to girls they say "anything" and i have doubts that i could chat up a girl when talking about RAM.
if i knew that i would chisel it into stone and pass it down father to son (mainly because that information enabled me to have a son)

6. Is it normal to feel like you have more than one personality? To have one main one which is you, but then several other which appear now and then. Not like multiple personalities though. Does everyone get this and does it go away as you get older?

i have 3 personalities:
1)geeky gilb
2)crazy gilb
3)idiot gilb
and they switch alot

7. Is it strange to stand waiting at the lights for the green man before you cross, even if there is no traffic around? I would like to do that usually to feel safer, but I panic, thinking it's stupid and just walk across anyway, sometimes without looking.

yes it is

8. When walking somewhere, is it normal to walk on the side of the corridor/path that people drive on in that country? I walk on the left always, to avoid walking into people when I turn corners. But other people don't always seem to do this.

i don't but i went to a school once that literally painted lanes to make people do that
but no i don't


i have a question now:
is it normal to have some Phlegm in the back of your throat, every time i go to parties i wash my mouth 3 times to get rid of it but then it somehow comes back in the back of my throat

The whooshing could be due to several things mentioned by other members. It could also be caused by inflammation of the neck joints and muscles irritating the major arteries to your brain. Have you had neck pain? Maybe you need to do some neck stretches.

My veins pop out more after exercising. Are you left handed? Maybe you've been writing a lot.

This is probably due to the inflammation around your gums. Have you been to the dentist?

Most girls talk about boring stuff like shopping, fashion, diets. It took me years to find friends on my wavelength. We talk about gardening, our chooks, the environment.

I call out "Excuse me! Could somebody serve me?"

I have different personalites: Mum personality, Friend personality, Professional personality. One of my friends who visited me at work saw me talking to my patients. She said my posture and voice were different to when I'm around friends. She called it my 'professional mask'

I make my kids wait for the green man. I'm trying to teach them to be safe.

I walk on the left, but not everybody does. There are always people who hog the corridor.

Normal healthy lungs produce 1/2 cup phlegm per day. Phlegm is all the bits of bacteria/dust that you have inhaled combined with the white blood cells that have mopped them up.

Most people clear there throat during the day and swallow it without being aware of it.

Probably before parties you are nervous and breathing faster and deeper bringing more up.

You should move to Australia - Aussie males love a good session of expectoration to prove their manliness.

1. When you hear the blood in your ears, is that normal? I'm assuming it is but I just wanted to check that everyone gets that. And is it normal for it to be louder sometimes, or louder in one ear?

I don't.

2. Why did I see my veins more clearly in my left arm and both of my hands today than usual? Does this just randomly happen to people now and then?

It sometimes happens, that's perfectly normal.

3. I am getting wisdom teeth and I keep biting my mouth accidentally at the back because I'm not used to it. Will this stop or do I have too many teeth in my mouth or something?

I heard that quite a lot of people have their wisdom teeth removed. You should ask your dentist.

4. What do most girls talk about? I understand everyone is different, but what are you meant to talk about if you don't know someone that well but they're talking to you anyway?

That depends on the personality and interests of the girl you are talking to. If you are unsure, you could listen first and wait what topic the other girl brings up. Usually, girls tend to talk a lot, so if you listen to them carefully it's not that difficult.

5. If you go to buy a drink or something in the canteen at school/college and get to the till but no one is there, what are you supposed to do? Assuming there is no queue and no one seems to be around apart from people eating at tables etc.

A loud "helloooo?" usually solves that problem.

6. Is it normal to feel like you have more than one personality? To have one main one which is you, but then several other which appear now and then. Not like multiple personalities though. Does everyone get this and does it go away as you get older?

Not sure. As a kid, I used to have another personality, who was male. It went away at some point.

7. Is it strange to stand waiting at the lights for the green man before you cross, even if there is no traffic around? I would like to do that usually to feel safer, but I panic, thinking it's stupid and just walk across anyway, sometimes without looking.

I usually walk across, but only with looking. It isn't strange to wait either, so it's your decision.

8. When walking somewhere, is it normal to walk on the side of the corridor/path that people drive on in that country? I walk on the left always, to avoid walking into people when I turn corners. But other people don't always seem to do this.[/quote]

Actually, most people do that. It isn't strange at all, though of course not everybody does it.
