I also do the laser thing, or sometimes I just imagine that somebody really fast is jumping off of the little roadside things you see and keeping up with the car.

I used to do that one too. I didn't have a skateboarder following on the power lines like a couple earlier posters, there was a guy jumping from street sign, to billboard, to building roof, etc. He always had to find the next surface to land on to keep up.

The other thing I would do in the car is figure out when the front edge of the car would intersect the oncoming electric poles from my perspective, then close my eyes whenever they cross so that I would never see the intersection.

wow I have always done this exact thing, only with powers of 2 (2,4,8,16). I do this with cracks in the sidewalk or fence posts also. I also have a preference for the larger numbers -- I am happiest when walking along a fence where the fenceposts are 16 paces apart for example (even if 3 fenceposts = 16 paces, I will find that pattern, etc). when I am driving or riding in a car I will often twitch my toes 8 times between each lightpost, stuff like that too.



[/ QUOTE ]

Yeah, I also do my multiples of 4 thing with fence posts, cracks, number of windows in a building, etc.

This thread makes me feel kind of good, but also less unique.

Another quirky thing I do is I'll say the letters in sentences in multiples of four and hope that the last letter of the sentence ends in a multiple of 4. So if I see the phrase "makes your teeth whiter" on TV I'll get quirky because as I say them four at a time (spaces count as letters) I still have two letters left. I move my fingers along with this as if I'm typing it out. I get restless if the phrase doesn't end in the multiple of four or three or whatever so I'll add punctuation which count as extraneous letters to make the letters "fit"

You count spaces?! [censored] psycho.

I know wht you mean - Jack Nicholson's character did it in As Good As It Gets. I happen to have some OCD - but I don't do that one.

When i was a kid, i used to draw an imaginary line through the corner of the duct that ran along the ceiling and into the corner of the room. I'd make a second line as well using some other markers and position myself so that i could look down both lines without moving my head. I thought it was neat to know that my head was in the exact same place as it had been before.

I have always been a stair counter. I usually go up them two at a time, and don't like to do a "one step" if the flight of stairs turns at an odd number, so I have to to a big step around the turn to keep my pace steady. To avoid having to do that, I will make my first step onto a familiar flight of odd-numbered stairs only one step, instead of two, so that I don't have to do anything crazy when I get to the top of the flight. I still know exatly how many stairs are in every house I have lived in or building I have worked.

Also, I have to make sure that my turn signal flashes in groups of four. If I accidentally go to five, I have to correct it with one quick blink the opposite direction to "fix" it.

I also have to count bumps when I'm skiing moguls, and count groups of steps when I'm jogging.
