I've read a few. So many posts though!

Also I, was born in the US, but lived in Mexico most of my life. Therefore im 100% bilingual and bicultural. I can easily blend in either country, though in some of the touristy places, like CUN or PVR, I sometimes come off as a tourist.
I was born in the US but my mom is Swiss and my father is Greek. I have accumulated about 3 years worth of time in each country with all my vacations and am natively fluent in all three languages, completely accent-free. Nobody ever knows I'm not originally from Switzerland or Greece when I'm there.
I still am. Mortified!
Music (and tennis) IS

I probably have a touch of OCD, but I haven't been diagnosed.
Same here. Not major, I just like things to be straight and level all the time. And volume for a TV
or radio has to be a multiple of 5.
I second that!
I had a friend who could do that. Bloody impressive, it is.

You mean "absolute pitch"? Ability to identify what a note or chord is played simply by hearing it? My sister has that... absolutely amazing skill. She was playing songs (without notes) by piano at age of 5 after hearing them one time only...
I agree. Perfect pitch is incredible. I have perfect relative
pitch which is good when playing in an orchestra.

Since my teen years, I have, without exception, gotten a sore and/or scratchy throat 24 hours before getting a head and/or chest cold.
I have never, ever, ever had a fever. Very dangerous, as I've been misdiagnosed many times, but my body temperature never rises.
I always put my head towards North. Otherwise I can't sleep.

-IWF and had flown ZRH
that day. I was on HB
-IWE i think.
-I play violin, timpani, and piano at a very high level.
I thought of a few more while typing the above ones, and then forgot them. Oh well. Guess they weren't that special.
