One totally fun and useless fact: I have 4.


1. The net I got my rating on was held together by duct tape.

2. One day when I was sick, I took my blanket and pillow to the beach to watch my friends play volleyball. Apparently I looked like a hobo. Children walked past and poked me with a stick.

3. I once missed jump training because of a work trip and to make sure I didn't fall behind, I did wall-sits next to a satellite in a thermal vacuum chamber.

4. I will go slightly out of my way to step on a crunchy-looking leaf.
