    Seeing forum members (and people in general) freak out over obvious windups like that

    Can probably trace it back to my enjoyment of this and all those complaining about it :D ...

    • Thanks Thanks x 4

    Getting an apology from SWMBO for anything.

    Watching someone fall over, stand up, then look around, clearly thinking "did anyone see me, no? excellent!"

    And firelighters. I once caused a panic when I disappeared aged about 3. I was found half an hour later under the stairs eating firelighters.

    'twas the start of it I reckon...

    That sweet little adrenaline rush/ prickle you experience when listening to a newly aquired piece of music you really like, that makes you feel like the coolest dude on the planet. Particularly magnified when you are either 1) driving or 2) slightly drunk.

    The downside is when you've heard the track too many times it loses its flavour (like juice from an ice lolly):(.

    Even when I'm stuck behind such a confused Spaniard, I do get an evil amusement from it.

    Keeping my finger on the down button on the sky remote while in the planner and then letting go and it continues to scroll and stops at the correct programme. Joy.

    Another one is when forward winding the adverts at 30x speed and stopping it bang on the start of the programme. Remote control god.

    Picking you nose and getting hold of a really long, dry bogey that slowly unravels to about half an inch long and makes you eye water when it finally detaches :smashin:.

    I love that popping feeling in your ears when you blow your nose. Though the wife does complain I sound like a fog horn :laugh:

    I also like the smell of a new manual to games or that new book smell. :blush:

    The door from the hall into the dining room has glass in it and is heavier than a normal door. As a result I can walk through it and as I past the end of the door I can give it a short sharp and controlled push to close the door in such a way that I'll continue to walk until the end of the dining room at which time the door shuts as softly as if I'd stood there and closed it manually. Always makes me feel good and makes me think I need to get out more.

    The very subtle but also very cool grattitude shown by a motorcyclist when you let them pass...
    Its normally only a slight left hand raised, but I get a kick out of it!

    I give myself an internal high 5 when I can fast forward the ads on sky at 30x and hit play at the exact moment the programme restarts.
