I raise Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches as pets. I started with ten, now I have around a hundred and fifty.

@evelyns_pet_zebra that is interesting

@PapaLeo pics or it didn’t happen

PapaLeo's avatar

@RareDenver “Happen”? The only thing that happened was my birth – it’s just how I am.

And no, sorry, I don’t do online nudity. You’ll have to come over and see for yourself.

In High School, I fixed an equation that was written by Isaac Newton.
My physics teacher was stunned.
What I didn’t know at the time was that no one had figured out that problem in the 400 years since Newton wrote it.
About 15 years later, another student solved it, and his teacher went to a physics convention, and found no one had published the correction, so his student got the credit.
This was one of the 3 things I am most proud of.

As for my wife, she is a cousin of Marilyn Monroe.

Fluther is already up in my business. :)
Pretty much everything about me is on here somewhere.

Lemme think… I hate cole slaw. Never feed it to me. There, that’s something new.

@evelyns_pet_zebra Just reading that gives me the heebie jeebies.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@casheroo then I suppose I shouldn’t tell you that today when I did the weekly tank cleaning, at one moment in time I had about ten little baby ones crawling in the palm of my hand. Now that would give you the heebie-jeebies.

@evelyns_pet_zebra – very cool.
@filmfann – that sucks! You however rock!
@PapaLeo – never hurts to have a spare, until someone kicks you there.
@SirBailey – those are some tiny hands to be playing piano!

There is nothing interesting about me.

Bri_L's avatar

@Ivan – that, in itself, is interesting.

Facade's avatar

I’ll second what @Ivan said

prude's avatar

I naturally sound like a child so when telemarketers call, they ask for my mom or dad
(I’m an adult w/my own children btw)

I have physic powers

Ivan's avatar

Physic powers? I guess I have those too.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I don’t always see a reflection when I look in the mirror and I’m missing the middle lobe of my right lung. I had it removed when I was 6 weeks old.

FujiokaHaruhi192's avatar

I believe in spirit contact and supernatural things…

jeanna's avatar

@Ivan I always thought you were kind of interesting.

I’m obsessed with zombies. I have no piercings yet I have 3 tats.

YARNLADY's avatar

I already said it all in my profile.

aprilsimnel's avatar

I started reading at 2.
I can sing 4 octaves.
I grew 2¼ inches taller in my 29th year due to a thyroid problem.

Bri_L's avatar

@aprilsimnel- wow 2! That is amazing!

aprilsimnel's avatar

<———- Very smart as a child.

@Bri_LI know, I thought it was a exaggeration of some sort, but about 5 or 6 relatives have said that such was the case, though I don’t remember not being able to read, that’s how long I’ve been reading. I have no idea how I came to know how to do it, either. By 1st grade, I was definitely reading at a ~10th grade level. When the rest of the class had their reading lesson, an aide would take me to play outside or in the gym on cold days. I was only a year or so ahead in math, though.

hug_of_war's avatar

I’m cross-eyed.

Somewhere out in the world there is another person who looks enough like me to have gotten me in trouble more than once. (Evidently they do not believe in paying parking tickets and are cruel to dates)

I used to explore caves with my friends as a kid and still keep my eye out for artifacts and hidden treasure when hiking today.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra i saw those roaches at a museum (alive, but in a tank) and thought they were awesome! though i don’t think i’d house them myself, that is pretty cool.

i’ve never moved from this house in my life, and am the most sentimental person i know, but i am always dreaming about traveling.
also, my dream car is this stationwagon (i didn’t take the photo). everyone thinks they’re so ugly, but let’s just say that if that cat was a boy, i’d have a major crush on him.

Clair's avatar

@tiffyandthewall I also drive a grocery getter. There is a slight chance mine may just be uglier…the more I think about it, the more I think it to be true. Yep, mine’s definitely uglier. But it’s quite convenient!

PossumCuber's avatar

I can solve a Rubik’s Cube in about 30 seconds, have eaten carrots with ketsup, and my grandmother is 17 (In advance, chill out, she was born on leapyear).

Allie's avatar

@PossumCuber Lurve for carrots with ketchup. I do that too.

AshlynM's avatar

Sunny side up eggs give me a terrible pulsing headache.
I can’t swallow any kind of pills, even small ones.

I drove a cop car alone at 90 mph and did not get arrested. Nope- I am not a cop.
