This is a poll to see how tall you are, and which hand to you use.  Here's me:

Height: 5'8"
Hand: Left

Go left handed people!  And right handed people too, I guess...

Height: 5'7"
Hand: Right
Foot: Right
Ear: Right (both)
Eye: Right (both 20/20)
Nose: Right (changes)
Sleep: Right (If I sleep on my back I have strange nightmares where I have my eyes open and can see things, but my mind adds bad things to them in my dream.  I can't move, but can see and hear.  It's very scary even though I now usually know its not real.  Some people have this same type of disorder and think they had aliens, demons, etc. in there room/house.)

Hite: Six feet.

Hand: Right for most everything. I use my left hand for eating when I'm using a spoon or a fork, but I switch back to the right one when I'm using something else, such as chopsticks. Also, I generally prefer to flip through magazines with my left hand, which means that flipping the pages on the left side is easier, which means that I generally flip through magazines backwards. Good thing I'm learning Japanese—the direction of Japanese magazines and books will suit me well.

Height: I'm between 5'8" and 5'10" depending on which convenience store I'm leaving.
Hand: Ambidextrous, but I find it impossible to write or throw or use utensils with my left hand.

I have that eyes open when you sleep thing, to. I don't dream often enough to have slept on my back and had a dream on the same night. I only know this because my parents say that when they walk by my room at night, I'm snoring but my eyes are open wide and darting around the room.

Oh, Luigison, that's calles Sleep Paralysis. It's something to do with when you "wake up" but your mind doesn't leave the subconscious state, so you see stuff, but you become virtually completely paralyzed. You begin to panic and feel scared, sometimes hallucinating, feeling like you're gonna die, maybe suffocate, meanwhile, it inflicts no hamr on you at all whatsoever. It's just REALLY scary and REALLY creepy. Actually, I had some the other night. Then as I was just getting back to sleep, a thunderstorm brews, and then I ended up staying up really late due to the insidious thunder blasts.

Oh... right.

Hand: Right
Political Beliefs: Right
Word I use to describe something true: Right
Homophone I use for Write: Right
Not left: Right
Height: 5'6" ....I think

This is off topic, but I sleep on my stomach and put either side of my head on the pillow, switching sides once in a while.  We might as well add this to the poll: Height, writing hand, which side do you sleep on?  I dunno.

Markio, when I first read the above I thought you said that you sleep on one side, but on the other side of your head.  That would be strange.  In reply to your other post, I knew what it was "calles", but because of my inability to spell and laziness to look things up I did not call it that.  There are more technical terms to call it, but I can't spell them either.  I could record myself saying them, but I am to lazy for that.  Or, maybe at about 11:30 PM I am just too sleepy.

"Both..."



In scientific terms: ambidextrous.



Height: Almost 5' 9" (never thought I'd be THAT tall at 14)
Political beliefs: As far right as possible
Hand: Right
Bike: Right crank forward (right-footed, in simple terms.)
Which Side I Prefer the Steering Wheel: Left Side
Firearm Stance: Left hand on barrel rest, right hand on stock (butt of gun) with finger on trigger, usually)
Preference of Which Side I Would Most Likely Want the Stick Shift on: The right...
Nose Picking Finger: Either or. (Nosepick... Actually a trick... but no one cares, oh well...)



There are a lot more but I don't want to try and remember them or come up with any more. Luigison, I get your feeling, but I have the reverse of that. I don't wake up in that kind of way, but I know I'm asleep, but I'm aware of what's going on around me. I think it's when you're on the verge of falling asleep and I like that. I don't have any scary images, though... MAN, NOW I'M SCARED...

Luigison, you were right, I edited the post where I said I slept on my side, I meant my stomach, I was just thinking about my head when I typed that.  BTW, Meowrik was the one who "calles" it that.

All these people are taller than me!  Thank Gosh I'm younger than most of you.  I think.

I sleep face-down in my pillow. Yea.

Intelligence: Yes. Quite a lot.
Brain: Resounding Left. If not for the trumpet, I'd have NO right brained talents at all, I don't think.
Political stance: Libertarian, accoring to the test, but I am NOT supporting the school voucher system, EVER, so I will never vote Libertarian. The school voucher system will be the end of any traces of intelligence in future generations if it is implemented. Although I do agree with a lot of the other Libertarian guidelines, but a resounding NO to school vouchers.

Umm vouchers are a Bush thing, not a Libertarian thing... I have no idea where you pulled that from.  If you do a web search for "voucher libertarian" on Google, you'll actually see several articles where they are generally against vouchers.

What, you guys went and changed this from a strange poll into a normal one by adding a bunch of categories? *sighs* Okay, fine . . .



&#8594; Height: Done (not as in "Done growing" (though that's probably true), but "Done" in that I already presented this information).

&#8594; Hand: Also done, back in the day when this was a strange poll.

&#8594; Side Upon Which I Sleep: All, sorta. Usually I start out on my back, get all nice and drowsy, move to my stomach (with the right side of my head on my pillow), and fall asleep. If my stomach is upset, then I find that the best cure is lying on my left side. It is usually only when I am restless and can't sleep that I lay on my right side.

&#8594; Foot: Right, I think. Though when I jump, I take of with one foot and land with the other (or both). So which foot is more important? The one that makes me fly or the one that keeps me from crashing down and breaking bones? Except, when  I'm landing on oil and water, like I just did recently in a parking lot, I crash down, anyway. Thankfully I managed to do so without breaking any bones (but I was afraid I had at first).

&#8594; Eye: Uh, I don't know about you guys, but I find that seeing is easier when I use both. My eyesight is 20/20, but I'm partially colorblind. I don't have trouble seeing all the main colors, but telling different shades apart is often difficult for me.

&#8594; Political Beliefs: I try to let the Bible lead me on this one, which means right for social issues and who-knows-what for economic ones.

&#8594; Age: Precisely 19.5 years on June 23rd, which happens to be my older brother's 22nd birthday.

&#8594; Most Recently Beaten Video Game: Um, dang, that's difficult. I don't know . . . Kingdom of Loathing? Oh, no, that's just the only game I've played in forever. Umm . . . &#151;oh, now I remember! The Wind Waker!

&#8594; Bored Status: I just don't have the time to be bored anymore. Poor me.

&#8594; Marital Status: Today I went on the second date of my life. So far I have never had a girlfriend, and I have never gone out with an American girl. I know this stuff isn't actually about marriage, but Luigison is the only married member here, so this really isn't the most appropriate category, anyway.

~Brain: I'm actually pretty well balanced in that, so both sides.
~Side on which I sleep: I'm most comfortable on my stomach, right side, or kind of halfway b/w both. I absolutely CANNOT sleep on my back; when I'm plugged and have to sleep that way, I practically go insane.

I don't know; I was watching the news and they said some Libertarian (Or, at least that was what he claimed to be) guy was for vouchers. Meh, I don't know. Come to think of it, vouchers make no sense stacked with other Libertarian beliefs.

It doesn't matter; I can't vote for president until I'm 21 years 11 months old anyways, and I have the odds of me living that long at 2:1 against right now.

I heard that sleeping on your back is the best for your heart. Then right, left, stomach get worse and worse for your heart in that order. I guess worse means "harder on your heart."

And isn't that right brain left brain jazz outdated thought?
