Here's how it works: you post an interesting or unique fact about yourself and everyone else can get to know you better. I'll post mine later on.

Default Here's one of mine...

I am sort of ambidextrous (try spelling that). I write left-handed, but I play sports and use my right hand to do most other things.

I have a similar unique "fact" about myself like Marc's...

You see, I do EVERY SINGLE THING in life with my right hand... my left is pretty much useless for things that involve a dominating hand. I play write with my right, play baseball right handed.. I golf right, throw a football right handed, and shoot a basketball right handed.

However, I am strangely LEFT handed in hockey... my mind just doesn't function playing hockey with my right hand. Weird.

...in a "response" to Chris' post...

Both of my parents completed University (...in Canada, going to college isn't as good as going to university... in the USA, it seems to be the other way around... am I correct? Why is that!? I've never been able to figure that out!), and both got their Bachelors of Education.

However, neither teaches any more. My dad is now a financial advisor and my mom is a quarter-time secretary at the church and also a substitute teacher.

I don't believe completing college means pretty much ANYTHING in regard to intelligence. You may know a bit more about what you got a degree in. But, I'm sure we all know these people that got these degrees, but they are total idiots. So its not really a big deal.

I know. My parents are pretty smart and I know tons of idiots who have graduated from college with a good degree. Take for instance some of my teachers who majored in something different than the subject they teach. One science teacher majored in English.

IMO, the completion of college DOES say something to your intelligence and dedication - but if you drop out, it doesn't always necessarily mean you're an idiot.

Well, it depends on what college you go to. Getting a degree at Harvard and your local community college are two different things.

I don't think it can say a whole lot. Not much of your intelligence is formed in college. Like I said, your learning about given subjects. And as for dedication, you can buy your way through college - just because your rich, doesn't mean your dedicated. Sure, work is where you find your dedication, but, just because you graduate, that o the doesn't mean you'll carry that dedication into the real world. Some people take college as 4 years to party (Yes, this is true. ), but they might still complete their school and get decent or even good grades.
