    Most employers give praises for my abilities on the job; it's because I don't tolerate failure.

    1. All your base are belong to me. :heh:

    2. People tell me that I always look like I hate everybody, so I guess something about my facial expression that throws people off. I guess I'm just that cool.

    3. A megajillion guitar picks.

    4. My brain. It works when I don't need it to, but when I do need it to work, or when I'm playing Halo with other people, it shuts off.

    5. People like to tell me how godly they think my band is, because they all listen to Ska n' Punk n' Emo n' shit like that, and when they heard my band, their heads exploded from the sheer |337ness of Prog-Metal.

    1. I'm unique, it's just a mystery as to what makes me so...
    2. I'm tall and lean; I call it the "twin complex" or "curse." Me being a twin doesn't make me unique.
    3. The only things I feel I need on me when I go out in public are jeans, keys, and a comb although I do carry my wallet around most of the time.
    4. I'm pretty sure my metabolism rate is through the roof, hence the weight problem.
    5. I'm complimented on videos I make because I work hard on them until they meet my level of satifaction. Yes, it's an asinine example, but I'm never complimented unless I'm wearing a suit.

    1. What about you makes you unique?
    Um... I like Rhapsody? (Actually, as of today, I like "Rhapsody of Fire")
    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd?
    Long hair I guess.
    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.)
    My Zep watch, this belt I've had forever, wallet, a guitar pick or two (you never know when you'll get an opportunity to jam!).
    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal?
    I'm insanely flexible... I'm all bendy and have double-jointed shoulders and stuff. It's weird, but comes in handy because I almost never pull muscles. :)
    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case?
    This is gonna sound terrible, but stuff like my vocabulary, and that I'm somewhat well-read and enjoy science and such... apparently some think that's rare for a metalhead. And once in a while, since I'm obviously a nerd, my ability to drink more than the average nerd. Oh, and sometimes guitar playing.

    1. What about you makes you unique?
    My big head. :D

    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd?
    I don't know, since I'm 193cm tall! :D

    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.)
    My cellphone, sunglasses and, oh, my discman.

    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal?
    Almost nothing on me is normal. I'm practically a fuckin' ET.

    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case?
    My self-learning ability. I self-learned english, playing guitar/bass/keys, etc... It's just plain obvious.

    1. What about you makes you unique?
    I actually have an oppinion and rarely do anything to please someone else. Also, i'm one of the few metalheads (like OfSinsAndShred) who isn't completely stupid. People see my hair and my metal t-shirts and assume i'm a burnout. Jokes on them. Oh, and I also own maybe 4 or 5 shirts that are not metal band shirts.

    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd?
    The hair. Other than that, pretty average.

    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.)
    I always have to have my keys, Wallet, and cell phone on me. If i don't have those 3 things, i'm very uncomfortable.

    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal?
    My dong that is much more enormous than matt moliti's :lol: Oh, and i have hairy hobbit feet.

    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case?
    Hair actually gets me the most compliments. I've had more random people come up and start playing with it... crazy.

    This looks like an ego pumpimg thread but what the hell...

    1.My ability to consume large amounts of alcohol and not get piss faced.

    2.Im a big guy 6'2" 225lbs. At one time I was 240 when i was hitting the weights a lot with 18 inch arms. So it looks weird at a party when I grab a guitar and start playing.I just get a lot of comments on my overall size.

    3.Im always carrying around CD's of my favorite bands of the moment, Im one of those guys who have friends that are eagerly awaiting my arrival at there house to show them what ive been listening to lately. I always have at least 10 new cd's on my person(vehicle etc) when I go somewhere.

    4. My second toe is longer than my big toe... /cough

    5.I actually get a lot of comments on my Tat of my family Coat of Arms, general comments are aimed at guitar playing, a lot of people including family call me the intelligent Ogre.,. take out of that what you may :p

    1. What about you makes you unique?

    Well, let's see...the odds would be 1 in 1 trillion or something like that of anybody having the same DNA code as me... ;)


    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd?

    At least in this part of the country, the fact that I am of Dutch descent and really look it. That's not a common "look" around here.


    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.)

    What, do you want to mug me or something? ;)


    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal?

    Uhhh...a minor case of scoliosis, but nothing bad enough to be obvious except to a trained eye.


    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case?

    Probably my ideas and my writing. I think it's because people can really tell when you're doing something you love--regardless of whether or not you do it well.

    This oughtta be good....lol

    1) I'm unique, just like everyone else. :loco:
    My unusual sense of humor.....

    2) I have a full time evil glare that I've had since I was a kid. I could be happy as fuck, but still have people asking me what I'm pissed about. Sort of Damien like, but more mean......More Manson-like.......

    3) pack of smokes, lighter, beer bottle opener, wallet

    4) My inability to digestively tolerate onions in any way, shape, or form. along with the amount of gas, and amount of harmful byproducts in said gas.

    5) probably smarts when it comes to computer related stuff, guitar tech stuff, music related stuff...Why? Because I have a demonstrated ability in those areas.

    J-Dubya - Hold the onions!

    1. Everything that makes me not everyone else makes me unique. There is far more than I could possibly list here...
    2. Aside from Scandinavia I'd say it is somewhat unusual to see a guy with long hair and sunglasses, though not so much lately.
    3. Sunglasses and ex girlfriend's ring on a chain I always wear. combat boots...
    4. I don't know what 'normal' should be, nor do I care, so I wouldn't know the answer to this question.
    5. I've been dubbed 'rockstar' by a bunch of people because of my attitude and hair. I've also been frequently commented upon my attention to detail and being able to see what people around me are thinking without them saying it. Been called a modern knight before as well for my views on honor and conduct. Personally however, I find these a bit excessive since I am not someone seeking fame or one to brag about intellect. I'd prefer to just do what I enjoy doing and not think about it.

    this question thing is a cool idea.

    *by the way, I wear the sunglasses because my eyes are sensitive to glare, and I prefer muted tones (early morning, late evening).

    hmmm just remembered for #4... i have a higher than 98.6 body temperature. i snowboard in a t-shirt and i despise when it exceeds 80F outside.. 50 is nice for me.

    1. My ability to examine any situation from both sides before declaring my stance...it helps with debates among friends.

    2) My hair is curlier than curly fries. Also, my glasses are Oakleys and they tend to get a bunch of comments because they don't wrap around the ear and go straight into my puff of hair.

    3. A few guitar picks and just recently, the first poker chip I won at a casino.

    4) An unbelievable amount of hair all over me...yes, even <insert your own strange spot for body hair here> there. :erk:

    5. Usually my laid backedness...nothing really gets to me much and it helps when people start panicking about something useless.

    1. My Ability to drink large quantities of alchohol and not get sick...oh and my ability to do many differ voice impressions

    2. Id have to say my size... (6'5 260Lbs)

    3. My keys!

    4. hmmm, other than my brain?

    5. my sensitivity, my creativity and very artistic lifestyle. And probably the most common rant (if its not about my skill to draw wickedly) its about my abnormal strength!

    1. What about you makes you unique?

    on an everyday level, just my 'strange' collection of interests (my music tastes, gaming tastes, book and movie tastes). for the forum its not that special coz there are alot of people who share similar interests but in my everyday life it is commented on constantly. also my strange quirky cheeky little sense of humour.


    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd?

    height and boobs :lol: definately the boobs..


    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.)

    mobile phone, ipod


    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal?

    erm, not really..


    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case?

    my eyes my eyes! most guys i meet stare at them and make cheesy comments about how they're the most beautiful eyes! i dunno why, theyre ok i guess. also my intelligence is commented on alot, guys seem surprised when i break out the conversations when all they expected is a *tee hee hee..i drive a barina!..tee hee hee* like what most girls seem to give them.

    1. What about you makes you unique? I tend to be extremely level headed in any situation, unless you try and steal my cd's

    2. What aspect of your physical appearance do you think makes you stick out from the crowd? the mane!!! im the only guy in my town that has blood red hair (when I decide to do that :heh: ) that and my eyes, people like them I guess

    3. What do you always have with you while out in public? (for example, earrings, purse, wallet, watch, etc.) razr, mp3 player, lustrati cross, guitar on days off, keys, pants (those are the really important ones :lol:)

    4. Is there anything about your body that you think isn't normal? most people wouldnt notice, but the center of my ribcage pokes out on the left side (does that make sense? :lol:)

    5. What are you complimented on (looks, smarts, anything) the most? Why do you think that's the case? 2 things, one my bastard V (guitar in my avatar for those who dont know) cause quite simply, it fucking kicks ass :kickass: , and my musical ability, when I go into the music store i usually play just about everything they have there I dont consider myself a awesome player by any means, but I can play just about anything you put in front of me
