Friday discussion thread: Weirdness


I haven’t done an open conversation thread just for fun for a while, and this topic came up yesterday. I was making a PBJ, and as I always do, I pulled two adjacent slices of bread out of the bag and laid them on the counter like I was opening a book, so the two slices were mirror-images. Why? So that, when the pieces are put together after applying the PB and the J, the edges align all the way around. Bread slices are asymmetric, and if you don’t do this the jelly will leak/drip/make a mess. Simple… but I’ve had people tell me it’s a strange thing to do.

So, for today’s silliness: What’s a thing you do that everyone else thinks is really weird but which makes perfect sense to you?
