    Yes, the monkey brain is very real, a leftover from when I did neuroanatomical research.

    Jeez, if spooky-ass knitted things were a fad then it's no wonder my generation is so messed up! What a thing to give to a child! Reminds me of Bart Simpson's scary clown bed.

    @gwferguson - I own four of the very same items on your skull table pic there....

    1 - I live on a boat with glow-in-the-dark rubber bats hanging from the ceiling.
    2 - I have a pathological need to never leave a bookstore without buying something. I now have a library of over 3000 (not all on the boat, though).
    3 - The Lion in Winter is my favorite x-mas movie.
    4 - I have developed a philosophy of life for the working artist, based on the samurai classic Hagakure.
    5 - I have been to Burning Man twice, and had fun. I may go back next year....

    Thanks for the topic - I've suddenly realized that I am not as weird as I suspected - frankly, I blame galloping old age - obviously, steps must be taken....

    1. Uttering the words 'old firm derby' never fails to make me laugh.
    2. If for some reason I have to pee in the dark, I fear 'toilet monsters' will set about my genitalia.
    3. I'm 24, yet still look forward to getting a chocolate advent calendar each December. Sent to me by my parents.
    4. If I find something particularly funny, I emit a hearty cackle that tends to startle people the first time they hear it. This only manifested itself after I took magic mushrooms.
    5. When walking, I assign a letter to each paving stone or manhole cover I step on, spelling out words in my head as I go along.

    @screamingmeat - you're from Kent? Shit man, small world. I was born in Gravesend and read the Principia while going to Dartford Grammar. (Living in Bristol now.)

    My five:

    1. I carry a 635nm acupuncture-grade laser pen as a magic wand.
    2. I got married in a leather trenchcoat, on acid.
    3. I never met a pun I didn't like - and I'm convinced many mystical systems rely on them as teaching tools.
    4. I get weirded out when I have a day without a synchronicity or a night without a lucid dream.
    5. Oh yeah - that whole "been in a triad with two women - one a shaman, the other an artist - for over ten years" thing.

    gwferguson- I'm envious! You might be interested in the photos posted at this site: Alex at Art Deliverance or artdel.ru I looked up the photographer when I saw a link to these pictures that was posted in a linked blog by Ectoplasmosis on Warren Ellis' website. They are of a nearly destroyed and abandoned brain research lab in Russia. Awesome photos!

    Cat Vincent- I like the laser pen/wand thing!

    curb- my thing is worrying about finding snakes in the toilet...but I'm more worried about hurting the snakes. Or, I don't know, Cthulhu with all the tentacles...

    @Cat Vincent: Praise be! You mean there is... well, was life here!

    Punning must be a kentish thing...

    The laser-wand thing came out of field expedience. Seems certain energies/entities/whathaveyou have a big problem with coherent light. Tried a common-or-garden pointer once and the thing just fell apart. Figured (since I've got some training in TCM) that the acu-tuned frequencies would work nice, and they did.

    And... Cthulhu without tentacles would basically be a sad little mouth. A terrifying, enormous sad little mouth.

    See, I think that's really sweet. The fear isn't of the snakes hurting you, but of you hurting them. You've made me more hopeful about the world. Personally, if Mr Snake is in my toilet I think he's overstepped the line, and if I accidently hurt him then too bad for him. Cthulu on the other hand... I'm not sure I can bring myself to pee on a god. Unless, maybe, they're into that kinda thing.

    I keep thinking the title to this thread is 'Give me a fiver'.

    I don't think I could come up with five reasons I'm weird. I'm certain I am, I'm just not sure how it would be quantified.

    I am self empoyed, in sales, and work from home. I make 90% of my business calls wearing only boxers.

    I can recall/sing just about any song by Anne Murray, ABBA, or The Carpenters. I am hetero.

    I own 4 pairs of Hulk Hands

    I was an Eagle Scout, and still look back fondly on my time in the Boy Scouts. No one tried to molest me.

    I have a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jistsu and own 50 long boxes full of comics

    I am wearing a shirt with the Nordic rune alphabet on it.

    I have named my car (1994 Jeep Cherokee) the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy. She gets better gas mileage when I sing to her.

    I return to my high school at least once a week to visit old teachers and make fun of the students. To their faces.

    I drink tea, and cannot stand coffee. I am American.

    Before I got my cell phone, I wrote everyone's phone number that I might need on my wall. The numbers are still there.

    I am a larper (There is perhaps nothing goofier than going out in public and pretending to be a some other person, possibly a vampire, possibly with a big nerf weapon.)

    I refer to my Penis as "Shai Hulud" (You know, the enormous life giving, spice worm that's worshipped as a god....I call my testicle "the little makers". Is that wrong?)

    I have an Armory and a Hat collection.

    I have a strange and uncomfortable adoration for Pop Music. ( I have the movie Xanadu and Spice World on DVD. MMm. Spice Girls....)

    My Laptop has a Venture Brothers skull sticker overtop of the Apple.

    I don't think I'll ever sleep soundly again. You've affected me worse than Ellis has yet to manage. I need to be held.

    Is it the naming of his penis or is it the use of the upper case 'P'? I'm more worried by a Penis than a penis...

    I am in awe. Truly awe.
