I use back-button AF.  Great for birds (bump-focus), useful for focus recompose.  Only downside is if you hand your camera to someone else, but green-square mode cancels back-button AF.
Me too!
Me three!  I have so many blurry photos of myself that I actually set C3 to Shutter AF+AE, f/8, Auto-ISO, and other settings to make the shots as idiot proof as possible :)

I usually switch to manual, pre focus, pre zoom, set a very small aperture and then give the camera away. Usually works fine.
