    I love it too, I'm not sure but I believe the body must be producing endorphins, which keep us hooked to exercise. I'm missing that right now.

    Well, if you ever are in need for a serious, scientific and bullet proof confirmation, I can offer my services at no cost.

    TMW you go to hunt at the supermarket, finding out people have discovered the pleasures of hoarding rice and bread.
    Why don't you get into steaks or greasy sugary chips, fuck...s?
    TMW you confront a plastic protective wall between you and the girl/boy at the cash register. I'm not used to walls talking back to me, with human hands beneath, it's strange when surrealist art takes over the supermarket.
    Also, special mention...
    TMW people are incredibly kind and helpful to you, taking away the pressure of being no less than flawless at all times. You know who you are, so... Thank you.

    TMW you discover the music for the main menu on The Matrix Reloaded DVD is the same music used for the opening credits in Law and Order.

    TMW you realize that there is not a single person who even care about the problems you have, and that no one will get how miserable that makes you feel.

    I care. I can't help it. TMW you realize that you're not supposed to take on life by yourself, and sharing also applies to what you don't have. We've been taught a lie. Time to face it. Hello, World? :)

    That's why you're a writer. To make them care. Or at least, care about the problems of the characters you put your heart and soul into.

    TMW you pop something in the nuker, set it for
    a minute, and all it does is count down. I derped
    for a second stopped the timer, turned out the
    plastic back zipper was caught in the door, so
    nothing happened other than it counted down.
    Needless to say that pulling the bag zipper out,
    and pressing the start button did the trick. :p

    TMW you drink black coffee without the half-and-half and are starting to regret it.

    TMW you start dreaming about going back to work after you're nearly halfway through your self-imposed week long isolation.

    TMW even after knowing someone for around 3 years, you still don't feel comfortable to tell them you love them. Though, come to think of it, I've never said it to anyone other than a partner or family member. I guess it's weird to say it to anyone else? :unsure:

    TMW you realize all those mods for KSP were sitting there eating up space,
    so still getting all the junk cleaned out, but I am pretty sure that most of
    it was KSP and all the mods for it. :p

    That somewhat surreal moment when your psychotherapist offers to deliver stuff to your home.
    This would never happen back in England. What makes it that bit more odd to me is that he's also English.

    TMW you do the public-spirited thing and raise your elbow to sneeze into it-- and nearly dislocate your shoulder.

    TMW someone new joins your {fill in the interest} group and asks "Am I too old to be doing this?" and the person is less than half your age. :bigmeh:

    TMW you pull an old jar of sauerkraut from the fridge and ask your wife is she thinks it's still good. She opens it, smells it and takes a small taste. "It's fine," she says. Then a few moments later she says, "I don't think I'll have any kraut on my brat." And you realize she's trying to kill you.

    TMW you can't decide on whether to ask an awkward question or not. One part of you is curious, but another part is afraid of what the answer might be.

    My curiosity has screwed me over a number of times before, so with that track record, maybe I should just leave well alone. Though knowing me, I probably won't. :rolleyes:

    TMW you bend down to pick up a rag at work and end up slamming your head against your vacuum and now have a bump on you`r head.

    TMW the unemployment page says "If you did not earn $3,366 from your separating employer, please complete this page with information regarding your second to last employer, if any." IF ANY....and then doesn`t let you skip the page even though there is no any.
