I don’t usually like LJ “memes” but this one allows me the indulgence of self-aggrandizing oneupmanship. So let’s kick it.

  4. Been a passenger in a WWII-era Grumman Goose flying boat and landed on water

  1. I’m a wannabe you
    1. I knew someone who survived two commercial crashes.
    2. I knew the person who filed the first sexual harrassment lawsuit in the state of Idaho.
    3. Met Desi Arnaz.
    I know, I got a wayz to go.

  2. you’re all hardcore.
    also, #5 reminds me of the time at socially hazardous when i was asked to delete the whole internet and put it back again.

    1. There IS no letter after Z
      Funny, I was just going to mention that not only did I know someone who did number 5 (that sounds like 2 1/2 times dirtier than number 2), but he did also 😀
      As for the others, I’ve got nothing.

  3. Holy shit, man.
    You realize of course that you should be a memoirist or something.
    It’s THOSE sorts of things that make for a great eHarmony profile, in my opinion…

  4. #1 – Does witnessing an f-18 crash and burn on take-off count? Does it count if the plane lands on a community’s fuel supply lines, requiring an evacuation order for the town?
