Fun facts, interests, hobbies

I can distinguish what kind of water I'm drinking without seeing the label on the bottle. (My roommates and I did water tasting experiment on me. I tasted tap water, Smart water, Evian, Fiji, and Arrowhead. And I got 100% on the test of water tasting.)
I've watched about 700 movies in my life. (Including TV shows, it will be way more than 700.)
