    This doesn't have to be something embarrassing, it could be literally anything. Perhaps you graduated from Gordon Ramsay's school of cooking, or maybe you served 30 years man and boy in the French foreign legion. Whatever, just have fun and post shit.

    I once had to wear glasses in 1st grade due to nearsightedness, but somehow my vision just happened to miraculously correct itself not a year after I got them. Never had to wear any since.

    @MythicalTurkey You lucky bastard. (>_<)

    I used to be able to play songs by ear quite easily, but I haven't touched an instrument in so long that the skill's probably lost.

    I've been learning English since the 3rd grade, I had 4 years of German and 1 year of Russian in (I'm going to use American school system) "middle school", 4 years of Spanish in "high school", and 1 semester of Spanish in Uni, and I can understand some Japanese from watching anime so much.
    I can only really speak Czech and English though. :D
    But the basics of German and Spanish are somewhere in my brain, so it would be easy to learn if I picked it up again.

    I hate the vast majority of fruits, yet I don't take any pills/vitamins/meds, have no allergies, health conditions and never was injured or in hospital for any treatment. Consider myself lucky.

    I was once ordered to be psychologically assessed after a fist fight in high school because apparently my principal found my response to her questioning about what happened to be weirdly articulate.

    Sure enough, I scored in the 98th percentile, or 'Very Superior' range for verbal comprehension... and in the 7th percentile for my 'freedom from distractibility'.

    Gotta say that not much has changed.

    I am proudly and wilfully ignorant about most matters of geography, because maps exist for a reason. It's got nothing to do with being bitter about failing Swedish geography four times in a row during seventh grade.

    I also hugely suck at all things geography. To such a point that in my adult life I've taken to studying the map of the world and various wikis of places around the world so I don't sound like such a gormless dildo about all things geography (especially politics, historical conflict and subsequent outcomes etc.)

    I still sound like a gormless dildo about all things geography.

    (I blame my stupidly intelligent and logically-minded, history nerd husband)

    I look younger than my actual age, people would normally guess my age to be around 15 or so, and will be really surprised when they know that i'm already a Uni student, it sort of hurts when that happens.

    I know that most places exist... somewhere, and that's enough for me.

    I once got called the equivalent of "uncle/old timer" at the age of 22.

    I'm sure no one's aware of my obsession with Yaoi & Shounen-Ai... Yes, that's a well kept secret...

    I'm super good at rhythm games on phone like idolmaster and bangdream, but I suck at taiko no tatsujin and other rhythm games at arcades.
    I play multiple music instruments, piano, guitar, but i am tone deaf.

    Happened to me once recently, though it didn't hurt as much, probably because the girl who called me that was about 6 years old.

    I'm a great Minesweeper player, I've reached a point where I don't find it fun anymore, and only play it to distract myself or when i multitask.

    People usually guess I'm 18/19 and are always very surprised I'm not. :D

    Same here. In fact a bunch of people I worked with back then thought I was 30 :pokerface:

    Other than Rock Band/Guitar Hero I've never sold a single game that I own (had to sell them when we were moving because the instrument controllers would have been a pain to pack up). Not even the crap ones/games I can't stand.

    No one can pronounce my name on the first try. The only people who can have met people with a similar name.
    A German language professor told me 'Your name should not be pronounced that vay. What happened?'
    I've taken pride in having a name that baffles everyone.

    I usually prefer wearing boxers, than actually wearing panties. I dunno, panties, just don't appeal to me.

    I have a weird and I guess creepy habit of opening fridges when I'm at a friend or a relative's house. Not because I'm hungry or anything I'm just really curious what they got in their fridges. I ask permission first of course but yeah I do it every time I visit.
