    This is a poll in which I state a few of the strange things I do, or strange ideas or intentions I have, which I am inclined to be believe are quite rare. Please check each one if you also do that act or something quite similar, or have that ideal, in order to get an idea of how rare, or strange, I am in these ways.

    A more positive spin is that you are eccentric. Sounds much better than strange or weird.

    The difference between an eccentric and a nut is that the eccentric has money.

    I really don't know. I've met them, and we sometimes exchange pleasantries, but I don't have a good memory for names. But this is only the next-door-neighbors on one side. I do know the names of those on the other side, but the wife is a distant relative.

    How much money?

    Enough that folks think he's sort of eccentric instead of thinking he's nuts.

    That's like answering "Why was the road in the chicken's way?" to the question, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

    I don't know the names of the people next door on the right side. It's not because I've never met them, but because they both work 2 jobs, hardly ever come outside, and they're from Africa, making name pronunciation all but impossible for me.:laugh:

    The rest do not apply.

    I've got my own issues, Alcott. I don't need yours as well.:thumbs:
