Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

What, if anything, are you obsessed with?

I"m going to have to think about this one myself.

Neatness, I know when anything is touched in my house. I hate having that obsession. Mad

Numbers...esp if I want to stay on task...and I don't have to think about what I'm doing, I'll count. Like once I've stepped into the shower and am wet, I begin counting 1,2,3...to 100 and start again. Going at a regular pace if I can, rather than hurrying through the numbers. Otherwise, if didn't count I start thinking about things and I'm in the shower longer than I should/want to be.
I count repeating patterns on things too...esp if I'm waiting somewhere...to go into see the Dr for example...patterns in carpets, on wallpaper. I can stop without feeling that I've left something undone if my name gets called.
Going up and down stairs I'm liable to finding myself counting off the steps.
Yep, that's my obsession.

I'm a logophile (lover of words). learning new words, meaning & etymology of words I've never seen before. Funny thing is that I also have severe lethologica. I often forget the simplest words

Oh I'm shocking Elaine for forgetting words. I often when writing posts have to ask google for the word I'm searching for. And most are ordinary words that I normally use daily. They just slip away from me.

One thing I do do, which I don't really call and obsession but my family say I am O.C.D. over, is washing my hands. Sometimes during a day I will wash them so many times that they get very sore.

Maybe I do wash them a little more often than some. But when you think of it, everything we touch is holding germs. One of the worst is bannisters. Very few people would think of disinfecting their bannister.

I never touch a lavatory door in a public toilet either. I lift the seat with my foot and also push the button to flush with my foot. I then open doors by covering my hand with my sleeve or such. The funny thing is when we come out of the loo we turn the tap on to wash our hands. That tap then has germs on it, we wash our hands and then turn the germy tap off with our clean hands, lol.

No wonder in the flu season so many people come down with it. People cough in their hands and then touch every day things that other people will touch and pick up the germs.

I'm shocking too Anne for counting tiles on a floor. Or patterns on walls. But I do that out of boredom when waiting, not as an obsession.

I do the same things in public bathrooms, too, Sandy. I grab tissue to put on the door knob to get out of the bathroom. I also touch the faucet with kleenex or tissue. Plus, if there are not paper seat covers, I add toilet tissue to the toilet seat to sit down. So many women leave the bathrooms without washing their hands. I carry hand sanitizer with me, too.

In this country toilet tissues aren't really heard of. We know about them of course, but they aren't supplied.

At the moment I am obsessed with Frangipanies flower (Plumeria) plants.


The other thing I am obsessed about is doing nurses corners when I make my bed.

I stopped with the nurses corners a while ago now. Now I still like the flat sheets but I just chuck it over and let it hang down the sides. It hides everything I have tucked under my bed, lol.

Nurses corners on the bed
sounds like some serious bed-making.

I am a hand washer and probably wash them
too often.
I carry hand sanitizer in my purse, as well, Dazz.

I have been obsessive-compulsive
re our shelves in the hall, my clothes closet,
my drawers.

I don't make our bed, though.
I'm terrible in that regard.
My husband is always hot at night
and I am always cold.
So, on our bed, he has one light cream colored
blanket and I am always layered in blankets
and a comforter.
In the morning, I just kind of pull all my layers
up in a big swoosh, close to my pillow.  Smile

Interesting Kerri. (o:

I check the door locks about 3 times before I go to bed. It's a bit obsessive. tongue

Checking the door locks 3 times is definitely OCD.  Do you do it all the time or just in times of stress?

My Daughter has the same problem but mostly only in times of stress.

I'd like to be OCD over my drawers and wardrobe.  I have to really pay attention to keeping them tidy and it a chore for me.

Primarily when my husband is out of town, which is not often. I suppose that is stress. Twice normally.

Yeah, I can see that causing it Daz.

I had to chuckle at your Elephants Elaine.  My daughter is like that with Giraffes.

She has a cabinet full of them along with a couple of 2 foot high ones standing in the corners and a couple of lovely pictures of them on the wall.

I love Bats and Hedgehogs  I find bats fascinating and hedgehogs are just so sweet there is no way anyone couldn't love them.  I don't collect them though, but I do go to see bats when I get the opportunity, which isn't often sadly.

Wow, how fascinating.

There was a large pub restaurant on the top of a hill where I lived before that had huge windoows along the one wall.  You could sit there eating and watch the thousands of bats come out at twilight.  It was an amazing sight.

As beautiful as Bats are to look at, don't let them come too close and scratch you! They carry diseases that are horrible and up in North Queensland in Australia people have become very very sick after being scratched by bats.

I love Butterflies and although not obsessed as such I can't go past a beautiful butterfly sun catcher!

I was put off of butterflies donkeys years ago when I found out they ate excrement and all sorts of other foul things like sweat, pee, blood, flesh. lol.  When you think of it, although pretty to look at, they are gross little things.
