Synesthesia

 I have spatial-sequence synesthesia!

I think I'd heard of that term (synesthesia) before but I didn't realize it applied to me.  And there's a name for the kind of 3-d number line I always picture too: it's called a number-form.  I've asked a variety of people if they picture sequences like I do, and have found very few who do.  And I think there's only been one person (another entp) who had a number line as interesting as mine.

Do you have any kind of synesthesia (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia)?  Feel free to comment.

A Hip to the Hop

Just got back from Simian Mobile Disco.  I felt very cool.  I had Friday night plans (watching a certain ball game) and after that was over, all of a sudden I had more plans!  It was an impromptu attempt to get into a concert we had no tickets for.  Turns out, all it took was a half hour waiting outside and we were approached twice by people with one extra ticket.  That worked out nicely since there were two of us.  

It was a fun show.  I was reminded that I like to dance.  Hopefully my hearing will return to normal.

Tire Pressure

I don't know how to read the tire pressure gauges attached to gas station air pumps. When I attach the nozzle to my tire, a piston pops out that should tell me the tire's pressure, but I don't know what units it's using.

A sticker on the body of my car just inside the driver's side door tells me to inflate my front tires to 210kPa or 30PSI, and the back tires to 200kPa or 29PSI, but all the gauges I've seen have single-digit markings. Are these hundreds of kPa, or tens of PSI, or something else?
