Being a better oral story teller or telling person antidotes. When I have a funny or interesting story to tell I rush to the end because I'm excited to tell it or I get paranoid I'm waiting everyone's time. My dad tells good stories, gives every detail some time to breath, some might find this annoying tho.

I think I'm okay with typing up an experience, but I have time to proof and edit it

I always thought Adam Nielsen was good at telling a detailed entertaining story, it makes perfect since he has a podcast now. He has the gift of gab.

Being taller.

But realistically, it'd be programming.

How OCD is everyone. You return home from a weekend trip or vacation, how soon do you unpack the suitcases?

We could never be married.

I have to have the bags unloaded and laundry started first thing. Wilkins is my kind of OCD. My mom has me beat though, when we stay with her over a weekend she sneaks into our room and does our laundry and packs it back into the bag for us already clean.

I usually take care of my bag within a day or two depending on how long I've been gone. Maria is like Wagner.

Do you keep boxes of products once you start using them?
I kept my Oculus boxes, modem, GPU. All other PC part boxes were thrown. I don't even think to keep boxes for non electronics.


Bigger question, do still have the box your big TV came in? I still have the box from the 60" TV (which would cost 1/2 for a 4K vs what I paid 5 years ago). It's nice when moving houses, but it's so big and I shouldn't be moving as much as I was 5 years ago.

I still have my Oculus box. It came in handy for the one time I brought it to my parents' to make them try it when I first got it.

I do still have the boxes for all 3 of our TVs. I have lived in 3 different houses over the past 3 years so they were used when moving. Probably don't really need to keep them now that we own our house and won't be moving for a while, but they're up in the attic of the garage so I won't worry about it right now.

I kept my Oculus box and my latest graphics card box to store the extra cables, screws, etc. Modem I guess I have too, although not sure why. Rest I toss.

I have some boxes. I use my Ps4 box when taking to my parents or GF's parents when we go there for an extended visit.

Sounds like I am recycling my TV box... I need to cut that bad boy up to fit in the can. I'm tired of it taking up so much space.

Maria got me a travel case for my PS4 for my birthday. I don't need the box anymore.

3 days early?!
That case will be nice since you pack it up frequently. I remember having one for my 360 when I brought it to the theater all the time.

Because it came sooner than she thought, and I used it this weekend when I went to Sheldon.

That's a tough one. I'd probably go with the smell of early fall. It's kind of a combo of smell and feel. There seems to be a certain smell, maybe the leaves turning, I don't know, but you still have the smell of grass and other plants in combination with the crisp, cool air.

One of mine is when it's during spring or late summer when there is a cold front hitting a warm front. Smells very refreshing and a bit electric. Used to have it happen a lot during soccer.

I know we are still on the other question, but I have one that I'll forget otherwise.

Say you're at work and you have to poop. All the stalls are full. Do you....
A) Leave and come back
B) Find another restroom
C) STAND IN THE BATHROOM WAITING LIKE A MONSTER

Lol at option C.
I'm an option A guy because there's one specific bathroom that I like to use.
