He never fancied the taste of alcohol. Simple as that.
10. Hates flying
It irks him to not be able to choose himself when and where to get off.

He always opts for ground transportation, especially trains, when traveling; and will openly berate anyone partial to flying. Especially pilots.

As is the blood that got splattered on it when Adam separated his buddy's zombified head from his shoulders.

Especially FPS and action-adventure games. His favourite game is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Contrary to popular opinion, the video games were not what turned Adam into such a huge dick.
16. "Adam Jaeger" is not his given name
17. He prefers barking before biting

18. He grew up in the suburbs
Not the kind with the white picket fences and vacuuming housewives; the kind where your bike gets stolen and stripped for parts on a monthly basis.
