Not really. Within two years, yeah, I'm sure I have, but two years isn't really "recent".

I think I kicked the habit because I'm trying to un-learn all of my weird habits and tendencies. . .it was expected when I was a kid, a little weird when I was a teenager, but I am paranoid about creeping people out so I try to avoid publicizing my weirdness/immaturity/whatever.
Stupid internet! Why can't you understand how I feel...?

damn...you guys reminded me of this stuff...
I used to imagine it was sonic, just because he's so damn fast.
I think this is common if you've played platformers in your early life.

I can't say I have played Hanako's game recently; at home our floor is wood and the tile at campus is uniform. But, I definitely played it back in the day.

And to make another, I also imagined something running along side my car, but it was a raptor. I was (...am) a big Jurassic Park fan.

I still move as a Bishop or a knight on my kitchen floor.

Am I the only guy who tried not to step on the black/off squares?

My variation was that our car had a giant buzzsaw sticking out of it and I gave myself points for cutting down telephone poles or slicing guard rails. I also would try to predict when the telephone poles switched to the other side of the street so that I could get maximum points. That was fun.

Damn. I thought I was plain wierd when I did this. It's surprising how many other people do little things like this.

mine was a sword that would break on some objects, but would cut others. cutting would give points but no score is kept. breaking would be bad somehow.

I used to do this a lot.
Also on surfaces with lots of little tiles I try to step on as few tiles at once as possible when I walk, which can lead to odd looks.

When I first saw this thread I thought it was about chess (from the last scene) and was seriously confused as to why nobody would call it by name :D
