I'm proud of the fact that I can keep time to music with my left foot and maintain my car's speed with my right foot.

I'm proud of the fact that I liked Nutella before it was cool. *hipster glasses*

I play the entire drum set with my hands and feet in my car, also using the left foot for bass. Getting good exercise with my left foot should help me learn to play metal better. *giggles*

You should have seen our drum major. He and I would be driving to McDonald's, and he'd suddenly yell for me to take the wheel as he performed an air guitar solo while playing all the other air instruments at the same time. Good times, man, good times.

I found a 1.8 billion year-old chunk of metamorphosed banded iron formation in a mid-Michigan farmer's field. There's so much iron in it that a magnet sticks to it. It's super neat, with its stripes of nearly pure iron ore and it's layers of chert that are folded onto each other. The shape of this rock looks like a cow heart including the artery on top. Thus, I've nicknamed it "heart of stone".

About five - 6 inches across, weighing in at about eight pounds. One dense rock!
The iron is held in a matrix of either hematite (FE3O4) or Magnetite (FE2O3) interspersed with layers of silia-rich chert.
Because the iron is already bonded with oxygen, it doesn't rust. The rock will however turn reddish if you handle it, especially on the cherty layers so I suppose that there are some unbound iron molecules floating about. This heart of stone has been heated and faulted, cracked, and pressed together then heated some more. It's been metamorphosed sometime in the ancient past while the north american continent was being stitched together out of separate microcontinents. I have an even prettier bit of BIF, with a totally different story of violence in it's past: Something came along and tore it up while still soft: Maybe even the tsunami caused by the Sudbury meteorite.

Maybe it's a frozen ball of airplane waste like from the movie Joe Dirt!?

I am proud of a fossilized sand dollar that i found on a rock in the creek bed close to my house.

I got $300 worth of Steam games for $85. $36 of that $85 was Skyrim: Legendary Edition. I got 15 games and tons of DLCs, yeeeeeeeeeeah!

I'll post my list in the video game thread. X3

Trivial things I'm proud about?
Why, me, of course!

Also I can pretend to be sitting on a chair in the air while resting one of my legs on my lap, stay in the cold of winter without more than a sweater, and can understand two languages. (Though the last one is not so trivial.)

This is just silly, but I'm proud to have at least gotten Rick to do a spit take ~ even though clearly I should be paying attention.

I'm also proud to have an 30 minute hourglass at home.

I'm proud that I finished Dark Souls. Although seeing some of the insane challenge runs people have done (no healing, no armor, level 1 runs etc.) makes me feel a bit less proud. I can still rub it in my brother's face though!

That game was a pain in the butt. When I beat it the first time, I went right out and got rid of it. To stressful for my liking.
Go Skyrim cough cough.

Yeah I can see that. There are a lot of things I like about Dark Souls but it's too frustrating and punishing to really lose yourself in like Skyrim.

Another thing I'm proud of is that I drank 9 cups of tea in one day. I'm Irish, I'm allowed to.

I have drank 100 coffees straight. Sadly I did not reach a stage of enlightenment, but ran around screaming for a few hours.

Is 100 an exaggeration? I think you're gonna get some form of intoxication from that many cups of coffee. XD

Well, it depends. Different people have different threshold levels of caffeine tolerance. My mum drunk 3 big jugs of coffee each day in her 20's, but I can't drink more than 1 mug of black joe at one time before I get antsy and irritated.

Sleet has a biomedical engineering degree and better understanding of toxicology than anyone else without equivalent education or experience. There is a threshhold at which caffeine, or any substance, becomes fatal. Lethal coffee dose, for an average adult, is approximately 80 cups (about 150mg/kg body mass).

Assassins Creed already taught me this. Medicine can heal, to much can kill.

Well, I can only quote from experience and some basic knowledge that I have around me. That's a lot of trouble just to get yourself fatally intoxicated by coffee xD

"Intoxication" probably isn't the word for it. Unless it's Irish coffee. :P

Then again it'd take a lot less of that to kill you.

Wouldn't it actually be more of water intoxication rather than caffeine?

You may find this handy dandy calculator useful for determining the quantity of caffeinated beverages it would take to terminate an individual.

If anything, those cups of coffee were decaffeinated. There also exists the possibility of complete universal slowdown as demonstrated by Fry in Futurama.
