So I'm a student at University at Buffalo and me and a bunch of people from my floor went to Niagra Falls the other day to take advantage of the weather.
A good portion of Niagra Falls is just trails that take you down to the base, so a lot of people hike down there. I was drinking a little bit and I lit a cigarette and this kid said the funniest compliment I've ever heard. "Mike, your habits are so unhealthy but so cool. You're hiking while making the world's worst life decisions."
So what about you, UG?

Got called a cool nerd once, so nothing really.

Although on Xbox I got told I had the voice of a 30 year old when I was 17. That wasn't a compliment, but I was flattered anyways.

I've been told more times than is reasonable that my eyebrows are good. I think maybe it's people that like wanting to pay me a compliment but struggling to find something that won't be an obvious lie.

Once at a public urinal an old fella broke the cardinal rule and talked to me. Said "you're big, aren't you?"

I'm assuming he was talking about my height because it can't have been the other thing...

I think some people estimate the size based on how strong the stream they hear is.

In that case, pro tip: Pee as hard as you can to give listeners the impression that it's really big.

People who think I'm in the age range of 27-30......Still haven't figured out if it's because of a mature personality or if I'm an ugly hag.

Oh yeah this too.

I got told I looked 27 when I was 19.

And yet somehow I still get ID'd occasionally.

I've never been ID'd except in places that ID everyone regardless of age.....

When I sat the interview for my job I have now, the hiring manager thought I was 27.


I was 22.

Oh boy there's a lot

Someone told me that I give off an impression of elegance without actually looking elegant. I'm not sure if that was a compliment. Conversely, people often tell me they like my style when I'm not feeling particularly stylish. Who knows what's going on

This was a while ago and also the person who said it was drunk but she said something like "I like how you can change your ethnicity by dressing differently" like yeah I totally woke up this morning thinking alright, I'm gonna be Indonesian today lol.
Same person also said "I like your hair because it looks the same when it's messy and done up so you never have to take care of it!" If only she knew....

Finally, this is a criticism not a compliment but still weird - one of my relatives was chastising me for my lack of child bearing hips. She was doing this at a baby shower for my aunt too so it was even weirder.

lol, got ID'd the other day in the supermarket because I bought a bottle of wine.

"Can I see your ID?"
- eh, yeah sure!
*stares at my ID for about 10 seconds* (keep in mind that my year of birth is '91, and I had to be 18)
"Alright, I'll just have to run the date through my computer"
- eh... ok?
"September, is that the 8th month?"
- ...no, I think it's the ninth.
*stares at screen*
"Ok then, seems to be fine!"
#22
Wow.

What 16 year-old buys wine anyway?

Over here the rule is you have to be 18, but if the cashier thinks you're under 25 they have to ID you. I'm 24 so it's fair enough I guess.

Yeah, they implemented that rule as well (ID'ing if under 25). I've no problem with it personally, but for some reason it turns some people into dicks. One lady in a liquor store just bluntly asked "Why haven't you shown me your ID yet?". I just said "never mind", left the bottle on the counter and walked out without buying anything

I've figured out what the people in the supermarkets look out for tho. If I buy just wine or beer they'll ask me for my ID. If I buy wine or beer and a lot of groceries that are not junk food, no questions asked.

Can confirm. As soon as i needed to actually put some effort in, being better than everyone stopped being fun and i declined rapidly and i didn't realise till it was too late.

Probably because a lot of people find high school easy to coast through, and university comes as a nasty shock because you actually have to do stuff outside of timetabled classes to do well.

You can even do spectacularly in college without any significant effort, and coast through military schools considered some of the hardest available and flounder later in life because everything's been easy and still is but you realize you don't have a fucking clue what you actually want to DO with your life and you feel like something's missing and it takes you a decade to get it figured out.

Or so I'm told...

My problem was I became really disinterested in school and academia in general.

Still love to learn, but I just can't do that setting. Which sucks, because it took me 4 years of paying for college to figure out.

But I digress, best not to go off topic.

With me it was mental illness and sudden social ineptitude.

I enjoy my current studies and don't regret the arts/technical course I'm on, but I could probably get a decent career going if it weren't for the transition from primary and high school. doubt that'll happen with my current studies. I comprehend 95+% of what I'm presented with in any field that isn't chemistry, higher maths or physics (because I don't know the languages), but I can't retain it, and struggle to get the required boxes ticked to get the grades, despite possessing the ability to do so on an intellectual level.

which sucks (ok I'm done moaning now)

I feel like all my years in school were a very elaborate exercise in finding the easiest/fastest way to do stuff and in being a smartass (What do you mean I can't pass the test if I start studying only two days in advance? Alright, I'll play...). Is there perhaps a chance that sometimes listening to teachers/adults would have been beneficial in any way?

I'm only a few years into the decade you mentioned btw
