Finally! Now it worked? I just trimmed down the name of the file (lots of words separated with "_")...
What I didn't get to fit in my signature - "the special 'ability'" - well, here goes:
****This is a LONG story/exposition, so if possible, could someone help me linking this to a thread about similar subject-matter, or just tell me if I
should make this a full topic?****
I have kind of a "sixth sense", some say I'm partly psychic (not like the "normal" way), and I try to sometimes
rationalize it with just saying I've got a good intuition. My mother told me I've inherited in from her, just like my 2 older brothers. All 4 of us
have different type of way we go about it. Closest to my "style" (which I just realized when I talked to the brother on the phone and he sparked up
the conversation) is my oldest brother, who's almost 20 years older than me. He lives in the capital of my country, I live a 2-3 hour drive from him
so I don't see him that often unless he comes to visit when he's on a holiday from work, or vice versa.
He's owns a cleaning company and is somewhat famous in small circles of that city, because he's in politics too, and has an organisation (or
foundation?) called "Rights to Cleaners" (directly translated) that tries to fight to get more benefits for the workers (and I can understand; it's
funny how jobs like that - even when trained to do it - can pay so little, even though it's really important - keeping places clean in the city and
The other brother is 15 years older than me, lives very close to me and as such is also more closer to me (as a family-member), even though I love
My mother is probably the strongest of us all, but she doesn't tell us everything. She uses cards (even though she doesn't need to - there's one of
the things of my "intuition" tells me), and she's always frightningly right. And she can do it to complete strangers too, as long as that stranger
has some kind of a connection to me (or someone she knows).
Examples: One of my old long gone aquintances wanted to try it out and we went to her house. She told the guy she feels he's having some sort of
car-problems, and a brown-haried lady is causing her grief. The dude just dropped his jaw on the floor, and started laughing. He had just been in a
minor car-accident and his girlfriend was about to leave him..
Examples from me: I was in the shower about two months ago, and suddenly I started feeling really, really sad and remember one of my friends out of
thin air (that friend usually is someone who's happy and all)... I stopped showering, thinking if I should call him (We hadn't been in contact for
2 months for some reason), and I dediced to call my best friend first about it.
He told me X (the guy) was admitted to a short stay at a "mental institution" (I'm not an english speaker, so what I mean is it's *not* a
looney-bin, but an open place where you have your own room, clothes, electronic entertainment and doctors there 24/7, for a short stay only), becuase
he had a total breakdown and started crying (he never cries! Maybe that's why I cried, creepy...) because he was harassed badly at his old workplace,
by even the boss. That guy is usually the type that he'll punch your teeth in if you p*** him off, and usually everyone likes him since he's a great
guy with a fantastic sense of humor. And some other problems I can't remember.
Example 2: A few years ago, my best friend separated from his girl-friend because he didn't feel "it" anymore. Well, they both found new partners
pretty quick (my friend's new girl was smoking hot and nice to boot! A real dream), and everything went well.
Then, I had a weird feeling/flash suddenly while I was zipping coffee in my kitchen with said friend:
Me: "So, you're happy with X right?"
Him: "Oh, yes, she's amazing
Him: "What..? Another one of your things again? Tell me."
Me: "I don't think I should..."
*after going on an on about telling him or not telling him, I spilt it out*:
Me: "You're gonna go back together with X."
Him: "Hahahahaha, what?! Why? I've almost forgotten she exists and we both are happily dating."
Me: "I don't know why! That's part of my 'thing' or whatever this is."
Him: "Yeah, well, no, it's not gonna happen... I don't like her anymore."
***many months pass, we're in a Sauna***
Him: "Hey... I... I think I've started to miss X. Things are not going so good with current-X..."
Him: "Do you think..."
Me: "I have no opinion, but yes, haha. Don't you remember..."
Him: "But we're both dating others and I haven't talked to her in a long time..."
Me: "...Well, you need to figure it out yourself. I mean sure, I'm listening to you and I understand you, but... I felt what I felt and I'm 100%
sure she'll take you back (even I hadn't talked with the ex in all that time)."
He calls me and says they're back again, and they were, 4 happy years
I have many more deliciously funny examples, but SHORTER!!
