Here are 5 weird things about me:
1) I like technology, but only if it serves to make life better on balance without negative side effects to the users, society, or environment. Keeping in mind that anything we do will have side effects. I do not own a cellular phone, don't drive cars - I'm not even licensed (by choice). I don't watch television. Many modern "tools" are a waste in my opinion and many only appear to make life better but actually only make it easier to do things that make life worse or require a huge amount of your work time to afford to own them. On pro-tech side, I like my laptop computer and the internet. I am a licensed airplane pilot, think the bicycle is the greatest transportation invention ever, and also like trains. [It is not a mere coincidence that the men who were the first to design and fly a fully functional airplane happened to be in the bicycle business.]
2) I have the nose and ears of a dog. No, I don't look like a dog, but I can hear very high frequency sounds, such that ultra sonic "silent" alarm systems like some banks and stores have hurt my ears. As a result I have made a fortune robbing banks and jewelry stores (not really, just seeing if you are paying attention). I cannot tolerate high noise levels either and wear ear protection while in airplanes or cities. I am sensitive to smells and can't stand the smell of scented soaps, candles, perfumes and such - they make me gag. I also associate memories with smell, as much as I do sight or sound. I love the natural smells of foods, such as garlic, ginger, and onions - and of course flowers.
3) I do not follow any organized religion or philosphy, and I do not believe in any gods. I consider myself a spiritual person and have developed a personal philosophy which is a blend of classical Western (Aristotle) and Eastern (mostly Buddhist) approaches to life.
4) I throw a ball with my left hand and a Frisbee with my right. I eat with my left and write with my right. I kick with either foot. I suppose if I had practiced writing with each hand I'd be ambidextrous. I can read backwards writing with ease.
5) I don't like watching professional sports. I do like team sports on a personal level. I'd go to a high school or college game because my kids went to that school, or play volleyball or soft ball and enjoy that. But watch a bunch of people I don't know or care about, who do nothing but play a sport for huge sums of money for entertainment? Never. I really do not understand anyone who devotes a portion of their life to following the careers of professional atheletes or memorizing the rankings and statistics of the players and teams. Sports fans, don't try to explain it to me. I will never understand it and really don't care to.
OK. There's five. Are they weird enough? I could probably come up with weirder examples, but I don't want to frighten anyone.
Now move along. Nothing to see here folks...
