Why ?

A good classy tie can look good. I like Brooks Brothers ties, they mostly don't make you go blind.

I think the basic idea of a tie is funny. It's a long wedge-shaped strip of fabric you place around your neck in a noose-like fashion tied in a very specific way.

Deep dark secret: I like chocolate =)
Boringest secret evar!

Religion: None, but I believe in God.
Doesn’t believing in (a) God constitute a religion (even if it’s not an organised one) in itself?

And how on earth does a nose “shut down”?

How dull. I had visions of you walking into a new friend’s house and your nose suddenly folding and squishing itself in to disappear altogether from your facial features.
