    Post one interesting fact about yourself that you think no one else (at least on this board) would know and that you don't mind sharing (this avoids personal conflicts, etc.)

    My interesting fact: I've written a short screenplay in German and am currently working on another German screenplay.

    My interesting fact: I have 34 Bob Marley CDs, five Marley t-shirts, one Bob Marley club shirt, two Bob Marley songbooks, and I have lost several other various Bob Marley fan items (posters, stickers, etc.). My screen name on Yahoo used to be bob_marley_protege.

    I've been psychologically conditioned against feeling pain during exhertion. I keep trying to take up jogging, but my hands are a bit scarred up from all the times I've fallen flat because I couldn't feel my legs about to give way. Oh, and once I turn violent, your submission and my inability to move are the only two things that will stop the fight, as I can't feel any painful deterrants.

    Btw, nobody believes me when I tell them this, but if you ask any psychologist, your brain will do this in extreme situations (such as being forced to run on a broken leg, in my case) as a survival instinct. If the causing condition stays in place long enough, the brain conditioning becomes permanent.

    I talk to myself, out loud, when nobody's around. And, I never was really conscious of it until about a week ago when my roommate caught me doing it. The (awkward) conversation went like this:

    Him: Who were you talking to?
    Me: (confused) What?
    Him: I just heard you talking to someone.
    Me: Oh.... (realizes) myself.

    I didn't really write "The Communist Manifesto".... I had a ghost writer...

    ok just kidding....

    I was an only child until I was 16, when my parents had my brother. Over the years, we've managed to stay close and I was best man at his wedding last summer.

    I also have a child with a form of autism known as "Asperger's Syndrome"

    My father's parents both died on my birthday (November 30th) ten years apart. The chances of that happening are 1 in 48 million
