    I have recently discovered that this pretty obvious statement is true : if you don't do anything different from everyone else, you don't stand out from everyone else.

    If you stand out from the crowd, you get recognised more easily. So my question is, how are you (or someone you know) different from the crowd? For example, I have a friend at my work, he has an unusual type of car, he drinks coca-cola with cherry or with vanilla or lime (when you see it in the staff room refridgerator you immediately know that its his). It can be silly things, like how you greet people, or how you eat ,or sleep, or talk, anything really!

    Here is a list of my differences:

    - I am left handed, verses the more popular right.
    - I use a Mac rather than a PC,
    - I am gay, rather than straight,
    - I don't agree with giving cards on occasions because the majority of the time they get trashed soon afterwards, however I don't extend this rule to people who don't know me too well because it may come across as being ignorant!
    - I have a very refined taste in clothes and music. I don't mean that in the snobby sense, but in the sense than I am extremely picky about what I like, extremely picky!
    - I have a favourite brand of bottled water.
    - I have a distinct aftershave which when everyone smells it they know its me.
    - I never go into a clothes shop if I am wearing clothes than I bought from it.

    I can't think of any more, but basically just post how you are different from others, whether you do it intentionally or by accident or you might just be born different (in appearance) or your name may be unusual or spelt a different way from the norm. i.e. my name is Shaun. Sean is a more popular spelling, however I prefer Shawn.

    Post!

    I'm totally unique, just like everybody else.

    99.9% of my genetic makeup is identical to every other human on the planet.

    If it were only 98.4%, I'd be a chimp.

    As it is, I am just a chump.

    No Polish jokes please...we are an International community.

    What makes me different from everyone else?

    - I hate TV
    - I hate the aquisition of wealth
    - I am ridiculously good-looking
    - My pants bulge more than most
    - I don't ever wear socks (except for professional settings)
    - I am an Englishman in the US
    - I have dark skin and green eyes, which is unusual for Americans and Englishman alike
    - I actually vote
    - I hate healthy vegetables
    - I like to walk, although I have a nice car
    - I did not go through the American school system (except college)
    - I have been to more than 10 countries

    Of course, I am like everyone else in so many ways, a pertinent one being that I am full of *****, as the above list will attest to.

    I'm an ambidextrous, lesbian Mac user.
    I hate makeup and laugh at everything that no one else laughs at.

    Okay, that was just funny! I don't think he understood the context of "pole."

    I'm a Mac user.
    Redheaded.
    Redheaded with blue eyes (a rarity).
    I hack with my left leg predominately.
    I'm a liberal in the South.
    My academic background is completely opposite from all my peers in grad school.
    I'm a drummer instead of a guitarist.

    I dunno... I'm always told I'm "different" or slightly "unique." I think it more to do with outlook and personality than because of physical attributes.

    I enjoy crapping/pooping. I even wrote a college essay about it.

    On the outside I look like your average blond haired, blue eyed white boy. On the inside, I'm a complete and total freak. And no, I'm not giving you any details. Sorry.

    Trust me... you don't want to know.

    I don't think I'm very different to anyone else.

    I'm just...me.

    I do have stupid hair though, probably quite unlike anyone else's. :p
