1. Kindergarten was a rough year for Nate learning the alphabet and all so...actually he accidentally pushed his hand through a sliding glass door and cut a nerve. He has lost the ability to close his fingers, hence why he's unable to signal the Boyscout or Star Trek signs.
2. Nate is the only human I know allergic to Tylenol. He breaks out in massive hives everywhere that eventually turn into ugly blisters. Unfortunately it took a few trial and errors to figure this out.
3. His left elbow has extra skin for some reason. If anyone is in need of a skin graft Nate is your man.
4. Nate once killed a pig with rag doused in Cloroform whilst attempting to castrate it.
5. Nate was robbed at gunpoint as a missionary down in Rio.
6. He wrestled at 119 lbs as a senior in high school (he was 6' tall at the time). Along those same lines he competed against a girl once. Luckily for him, he won or he would have had to transfer high schools.
7. Nate's sister wouldn't give up the crib so he spent his first years sleeping in a cardboard box with blankets.
