Here's your standard 25-things-you-may-not-know-about-me meme with a twist; There are 26, and only one of them is completely and utterly false.

So...you think #24 is completely false?

I'd go with number 9 as false, or is TRY the fail safe? ';)

Number 6 - I can vouch for that. Heh
Number 13 & 20 - ditto.

Hrm. That one can even be verified publicly by way of the Archive link. I'll say no more.

There are 25.

Hrm. I guess you can cross off 13. I struggle with simple mathematics as a falsehood.

We have similar taste in mice.

That seems to be a recurring theme here.

I'm thinking #11

By process of elimination I can confirm almost all of those.

I don't recall anything to indicate your ability to dance.

I can 2-step as well, provided of course there's country music playing. Once, in Korea, we were at this Techno club, and I was actually able to accurately 2-step to the Swedish techno-country band Rednex's anthem "Country-Eyed Joe." A feat I was proud of as I showed off my Texan heritage to a crowd. Of course I couldn't do that today...

Nope. I can both waltz and swing, and used to enjoy doing so at every social event.

I would guess that #5 would be the falsehood. I can believe that you may have OCD, but every hour on the hour seems a bit much. If it is true, then going pee for you must be like going to a Pink Floyd laser light show.

I keep a bottle of GNC C-500mg at my desk at home and at work. My mother turned me onto the practice when I thought I was getting a cold. I fought it off and haven't been sick with one since. And while you're right about the psychedelic colors, too much has a different effect, which I've never reached by use of my timed consumption.

i am going to go with number 3 as the falsehood.

Whereas jeans have a piece of fabric sewn externally against the outside of the denim, Battle Dress Uniforms have a pouch sewn inside of them, access of which is provided through a slit, covered by a flap with two buttons. Its very uncomfortable to sit on a wallet in that configuration, as it has the ability to shift. So I started carrying my wallet in my front pocket, and do so to this day.

I would have guessed 23.

A lot of people do assume I'm extroverted because of my outgoing nature and ability to perform publicly impromptu. In fact, I myself was shocked when I first learned I was actually an introvert over ten years ago because all these antics and my infectious good mood really drain me. I require time alone - away from everyone else, to recharge. Extroverts get their energy from being around others and solitude exhausts them.

I want to say #5 is false. That seems like a lot of Vitamin C and don't you need to sleep sometime? :)

ehowton at 2009-02-03 01:24 (UTC) (Link)
A mere technicality.

I just noticed you look like Silent Bob in this photo ;)

That thought occurred to me as well. Hair's not long enough yet. You don't know this yet, but I grow it long in two year's time, then buzzcut it. Wash, rinse, repeat.
