Once when my family was camping with our extended family, I somehow managed to startle like twelve of my aunts, uncles and cousins with a very sudden and unnoticed appearance.

 

My family had just arrived pretty late at the campground and set up our trailer at our campsite while everyone else was already at my uncle's campsite sitting around the fire. I walked over to where they were and said "Hi" to one of my uncles before sitting down at a picnic table behind everyone who was sitting around the fire in a circle. I thought everyone had heard me say "Hi" and I could have sworn that every single person looked in my direction at some point, but when I entered the conversation some of them almost fell out of their chairs. The general reaction from the group was "Holy shit! How long have you been creepily sitting there!?". I had been there for like fifteen minutes and they probably wouldn't have noticed that I was there until my parents inevitably came over from our campsite, at which point they would have simply assumed that I had walked over with my parents.

 

I wasn't even trying to be stealthy, it wasn't like I was avoiding the light or dressed in black or anything like that... They just for whatever reason didn't see or hear me.

They are probably not very observant or alert people. I can have the same affects to some degree but I like to go quiet. And in the group I would spot anyone else joining and even observe their behaviour. Even making conclusions on their level of comfort and social confidence. You probably do the same.

I'm this kind of guy that if i'm in a place with dozen of people in there and that I leave, no one will ever notice that I left a long time ago lol.

Funny you brought this up, I fit here as well.

 

Also, time for another story related to attending something and never getting noticed. Every year at my college an event with various contests, some fun, and whatnot is organized for fresh students, but at the Faculty of Medicine on the other side of the town. Attending it is not mandatory, but is highly recommended nonetheless. You're also supposed to buy a ticket in order to be allowed entrance. Now this is something they forgot to tell us the last year, which was my first at the college.

 

Fast-forward to the actual event, I joined it and managed to go completely unnoticed. And no one knows I was there in the first place. I didn't even pay for the entrance either, although I had plenty of money just in case. It was the first time I went completely unnoticed at a major event, but it just looks like some of my talents. Of course I also manage to sneak upon people unknowingly quite often these days, presumably because I'm quiet and they tend to not notice me until I say something, even when I stand next to them sometimes.

I guess this is one main fact of my personality :

I probably look like an antisocial or distant person as I never speak to anyone if no one engaged a talk with me. I only engage the talks if it's absolutely required.

 

Why i'm like that? I dunno.

I am still terrible at division.

Me too.

 

Related to that, because of Doom mapping, I've gotten really good at counting by 8 and recognizing numbers that are divisible by 8.

@antares031, this should have been one of the questions in the Doomguy Test!

 

Did Doom mapping make you good at counting/dividing/multiplying by eights?

I hate musicals.  The two exceptions are Repo!: The Genetic Opera and sorta Nightmare Before Christmas.

 

Related to that, despite the fact that I don't particularly enjoy watching it, I have quite a few Nightmare Before Christmas-themed clothes.  This includes socks, a long coat, a dress (two, I think), and some other things.

 

Now if I could only find the dresses Blind Mag and Shilo wore in Repo....

I counted how many times I've hit my head or something has hit my head, when I was wondering if my absent-mindedness has resulted from the impacts.

  • fell from bicycle, hit forehead into a treetrunk when I was a child, resulted in blood, stitches and a scar
  • some large wooden frame falls on me and hits above/behind my right ear at a judo competition, nasty headache and had to drop out of the competition
  • someone punches my face because of thinking I had done something I hadn't even done, had some minor headache
  • someone pushes me against a wall at school gym class and the back of the head hits the wall, bad headache
  • someone punches my face twice in a train when I didn't agree to some racist stuff he was saying, and then he got beaten up by whomever he was insulting in the train
  • have about no lights at home, turn to kitchen one step too early and bump right side of the forehead into the wall, got some bruise and minor headache for a week
  • raise from the floor and hit above/front of my right ear to some laundry drying device, initially just minor headache, but after a week feel sleepy, confused and nauseous for some months, headache lasts for about a year

that sounds like something I would do. I'm almost always the first one up in the morning so I have to sneak into the kitchen in the dark... I've stubbed my toes so many times >.<

I use BFG Division as my alarm clock. Everyone wakes up except me :""")

Vibration in my phone is enough to wake me up...

I'll get really, really damn tired about anything if I hear about it for too long. When Undertale came out I felt like killing someone (despite me absolutely loving the game) and I nearly hate Halloween and Christmas because of that as well. In fact, I wasn't around in the forums for a couple months because I was tired of hearing about Doom.

Judging by your username, I would never have guessed. Mayhem is usually associated with noise.

No, not at all! That's why I did this:

It kind of "resets" me. No matter how many times I get tired of Doom, I'll keep coming back to it, perhaps for the rest of my life.

Since there's some talk about alarms above... well here comes the next random fact.

 

I've never had the need for an alarm to wake me up in my entire life, I just (almost) always wake up on time, whenever that is. 

 

And the reason for not using any alarm is that I simply can't stand anything waking me up, I experimented with some of my previous phones a couple of times and I swear I almost broke them into pieces by picking them up and throwing them into a wall instinctively, regardless of what they were playing, be it a song (worst idea, I ended up hating the songs afterwards), a random tone, vibrate, or whatever, but if something wakes me up I go crazy and my whole mood is ruined for the rest of the day.

Well, I'm kind of the same. If I stick to a schedule like two week or so, I can definitely wake up at the precise time, but I definitely will set an alarm just in case most of the time. For example, in college, I usually wake up at 7:08 am. Most of the time, I end up waking up 5 seconds before the alarm.

Same, except the alarm. My parents go to work (or come from, for that matter) around the time I need to wake up so one of them just comes into my room to tell me to wake up just in case.

 

But I don't even need to get used to a schedule most of the time. I'm just like "Mmm... when do I need to wake up tomorrow... 9am? Very well." and I just do it, although I tend to wake up 1 hour earlier or so than planned if I'm not sticking to one at that time.

Lately my sleep schedule has been extremely irregular and kind of random. I have an alarm clock set to go off at 5:50 in the morning, but I usually end up hitting the snooze button until closer to 8:00. Ironically I seem to find that two hours of repeatedly hitting the snooze button every 5 minutes more restful than the 5-8 hours of sleep I should have had that night. If that makes no sense to you, don't worry, it makes no sense to me either.
