    I thought it might be fun to find out random things about the people on this forum - does anyone else find it weird that we (occasionally) have these reasonably deep and meaningful conversations but dont know that much about each other and may never meet face-to-face?

    The rules are (feel free to add to them):
    1) you must post a minimum of 10 random things, but feel free to do more

    2) these things must be RANDOM - ie not related to med, which is the glue which holds us all together

    3) be careful that ur random things dont make it easy to identify you - who knows, one of the trusted 'elders' could be much older than u think....

    My random things:
    1. i love cooking

    2. i drive a red subaru impreza (sadly my mum's and not mine)

    3. i think of good comebacks about 2 hours after i needed them, and then i can never stop thinking about them until ive said them to the person and consequently look like a fool

    4. i attract ridiculously old men (thus my irrational fear of stalkers)...
    - when i was in Paris this ~60yo man asked me out to dinner, then over to his - when i refused he gave me some strange strange fruit and told me to take it back home to Australia and plant it as a 'love tree'. seriously

    - in sydney the owner of the Metro theatre (big music venue for the non-Sydneysiders) also asked me out...when i turned him down (he's also in the 50-60 age bracket) he offered me free VIP tickets..

    5. i wont drink alcohol that doesn't taste good - no vodka shots for me

    6. i am pasty - if i go outside i just get burnt :(

    7. i want to go to Croatia..and also to Spain, and Greece, and Italy, and France, and Brazil, and New York...the list goes on

    8. i usually go to bed ridiculously early - say about 9.30, unless i go out - because i have an inability to sleep in no matter how late i go to bed

    9. i have a secret penchant for sentimental 90s music...spice girls, backstreet boys, christina, c'est la vie, etc etc anyone?

    10. whenever i post in these forums, i seem to kill the conversation...thus i don't expect this thread to be very popular :)
     
  2. Hurri

    Hurri Guest

    Ahahaha love your older men stories.

    10 random things about Hurri

    4) my biceps are 16inches when flexed

    5) it takes me 1.5 hours each morning to get to uni and anohter 1.5 to get home.

    6) When i was little, my plan was to play for wallabies, #$%^ being a doctor.

    7) i <3 fantasy novels like those by hobb, feist, eddings, cornwell

    8) sometimes on msn, i say "lol" even when i'm not laughin, i just can't be stuffed to say anything else.

    9) actually i'm not a man, i'm a horse *pulls off full body mask to reveal a horse*

    10) actually i'm not a horse, i'm a broom *pulls off another layer of full body mask to reveal a broom and falling to the floor*

    I actually wanted to start something like this a while ago. So I'm hoping you're wrong about No. 10, Nash.

    1. I love cars. Seriously, I always wanted to be a mechanic when I was younger. I figure that I can still do it as a hobby, though. I've a Peugeot 405 Mi16 that I protect with my life.

    2. I came to Australia when 6 years old. Was born in a (for the sake of this discussion) non-descript Eastern European country. No, I'm no communist.

    3. I love learning about spirituality (not religion, though), esoteric science and psychology - which probably shows in some of my posts. Also neuropsychology, metaphysics, psychoneuroimmunology, the list goes on and on. I try to keep it minimal here.

    4. I am NOT a morning person, or a Monday person. Life would be so much sweeter without the both of them.

    5. I have huge hulking German Shepherd sitting in front of my window, staring at me, whilst I write this.

    6. I can't stand people who are proud of their ignorance.

    7. I live two streets away from my high school.

    8. I enjoy Billy Joel, AC/DC, Jet, Queen, and Andrea Bocelli. I was even into Eminem at one point.

    9. The food in Thailand does not agree with me.

    10. I think I'm addicted to ice-cream.

    :lol:

    Simply said, it is the study of how thought patterns, ways of thinking (and forced visualisation) can affect the efficacy of the immune system. Basically, it explores the question 'Can one initiate internal healing just via the use of thought?'.

    Awesome thread! I live off randomness :D
    Anyway, here's me:

    1. I absolutely adore Korean dramas. Winter Sonata is my bible.

    2. I can live on choc chip cookies (with more than 40% chocolate!)

    3. I'm developing a theory that my parents actually brainwashed me
    into wanting to do med (hence, all of my baby photos have pictures of
    me playing with fake stethoscopes and syringes lol)

    4. I have too many embarrassing moments to be comfortable with -
    especially with my 18th approaching. Namely, screeching Celine Dion's
    "All By Myself" at the top of my lungs to a now permanently deaf audience
    (yes, literall screeching)

    5. I live a dramatic life (too many love polygons, too often lol)

    6. I'm short - 1.59m (haven't even reached 160 damnit!! lol)

    7. I can move my right ear (yes, I am a freak of nature - slightly lol)

    8. 'Closer - Joshua Radin' is the most played song on my ipod

    9. I had a lot of irrational fears. When I was about 10, my mum was
    watching this movie about Buddha and at the end the prince lay down on
    his side and they had this effect where he turned into stone. For months, I was
    afraid of lying in that position because I was scared I'd turn into stone... :unsure:

    10. Jane Austen is my idol. Actually, I just want to marry Mr Darcy lol

    Well, that's me! You guys all sound like interesting people. Especially Hurri's biceps lol
