    Mine, sadly, is the typical one; being able to "feel" when someone's staring at you.

    Sometimes, when the television in my living room is on TV Video 3 and displays nothing I can "hear" it making a noise. It's a flat screen but not an LCD, so it basically is fat, if you know what I mean.

    What's yours!?

    My sixth sense is that you post too many threads. You could almost start your own MR talk show with how busy you are starting threads.

    I had a internet talk show that everyone loved but the government shut me down.

    Usually I'm against the government shutting Internet talk shows down.

    I can quickly sense when something somebody said can be purposely misinterpreted and I can make a pun out of it. It's not a skill that will make me rich, but at least I can always amuse one person: me!

    My friend does that as well. It's hard to realize what he's doing sometimes, i.e., on Facebook:

    Person 1: "why take anything out of oregon seriously"

    Friend: "I would never steal from oregon"

    Took me at least five minutes to make the connection between the two. :eek:

    Well, I was adequately skilled at being able to understand what someone was 'getting at' in a conversation :D

    6th. Knowing when someone is "beating around the bush"
    7th. Knowing the perfect timing to ask a question
    8th. Feel when someone is staring
    9th. Feel when someone is about to ask for a favor
    10th. Make a joke out of something quickly or give a great comeback

    :D

    The weatharrrr. I don't know if I just pick up on subtle changes in pressure but I can always predict a storm or bad weather from a day away. When I was a kid on holiday with my folks in Scotland - I said we're going to have one hell of a storm tonight. They listened and we stayed in. That night this village we were staying reported one of their first tornados since their newspaper started. Nobody hurt. Which was savvy.

    I'm one of those odd human beings that don't have a sixth sense and even two of my other sense are not up to snuff.

    I lack a sense of smell (I lost about 80%) and due in part of my lack of smell, I cannot taste most foods. :(

    You mean, "Not up to sniff." :) sry, that was in poor taste...

    My 'sixth sense' is my first impression of a person is pretty much spot-on. The only thing is, I've had some rough experiences on occasion because I've ignored my first impression.

    Not sure if you'd categorize this as 'sixth' or not, but I have a very good memory. People comment all the time about the stuff I can recall.

    my sixth sense is finding threads that will provide me with a good opportunity to increase my post count without actually adding anything useful to the conversation.

    I noticed you have a tendency to make suggestive and borderline rude posts. If your indicating that my posts are just to increase my post count, feel free to contact someone to have my post count lowered. I don't care, as long as it doesn't go below 500. I want my avatar! :)

    uhm... yeah. i was referring to myself, not you. guilty conscience is a bitch, isn't it?

    having said that, i do find most of your posts to be pretty much worthless. much like this one.

    I'm sober for maybe twenty minutes, give or take, (in the morning) so it has saved my life, quiet literally, but it's always terribly impaired. :(

    Edit: A little more interesting than my personal life is that I recall my cop friend telling me about how dogs can "sense" how long a night stick is or weapon in general I guess, so if you need to defend yourself from aggressive dog you hold your weapon in the middle and swing, and when the dog gets close enough you hold the weapon at the end, so you can hit the dog.
