We all have weird quirks that are fairly uncommon, to say the least. For the fear of being judged we keep them to ourselves, however, that doesn't stop us from being curious about what others have to hide. So, to indulge in this secret knowledge, Twitter user @drakesbrother started a thread asking people to share their weird confessions. The thread was quickly flooded with the strangest habits. Some confessed to measuring how long something will take in songs, others said that each time they get in their car, they make sure no one is sitting in the back seat. While some of these things do sound a little bit odd, let's not pretend that you don't relate. Scroll below for the list of confessions and don't forget to share your's in the comments.

Same! And I know my "favourite songs" playlist so well that I can be like, "ok, I know it'll take me this long to get there, and this song is about that long, so I'll play this one", cuz it bothers me when I have to stop a song in the middle

That was so beautiful! I meet once a small kid who tried to explain how far he lives from his kindergarten....he said, my mum sings to me 3 of my favorites songs, and then we are back home.....it is a wonderful way to teach little kids about distances, it makes them more in control and less anxious.....

In the Midwest we measure distance by time, and I measure time by tv shows... or at least I did when explaining how long something would take to my son (we will get there in 2 episodes of Phineas and Ferb)

Me too, I measure how much I can ran by the number of songs. I started with half of the song and progressed to 5 songs for example.

I suggest listening to progressive music. This is the cure to the all-the-same 3 minutes something radio mixes...

This is incredibly common. Everyone does this, actually. Intrusive thoughts. I tend to think “how much can I key this car”.

Cupboard doors need to be closed when not in use. It's not that I won't necessarily be able to sleep, it's just why would they be open?
