About the third time I was spouting off random facts this last monday I was told that she did know– because I had told her before.

I suppose this is the biggest problem with being a walking trivia game– I wind up telling people the same facts over and over because all of them make me excited. Which then leads to supreme dissapointment when it turns out I’ve already told them before.

Admin note: So much this. Or Dr.Brennen (bones)

Its cool if you identify with a character and all, but its unacceptable to go around like “Hey you’re black, just like Bill Cosby!” – same goes for neurologically diverse characters… especially ones that are made for comedic purposes…?

I don’t typically notice about 90% of the people around me.

This has happened multiple occasions, and to the funny extent of my friend making out with this guy passing on the sidewalk while linked in arms with me. But mostly this… IDK if this happens in the reverse with guys too.

Sometimes I worry that this is dangerous not to be aware that there are people around me and not know what they’re doing. Then I find a caterpillar.
