As an opposite to the `I have never` post, I thought I`d start another with `I have`.......what unusual or quirky things have you done?

I have abseiled down the side of Ripley Castle
I have been the victim of the Indian knife throwing act
I have pot holed in Gibraltar
I have held a huge snake

Your turn

    I trouble thinking of decent ones. I need to do more interesting things! :D

    I have driven a selection of sports cars on race tracks
    I have been driven around the Lotus test track by a professional driver
    I have almost cut my finger off
    I have been in a prison cell

    PS Gibraltar is a nice place isn't it? I've been there a few times. Have you taken off/landed at the very short runway at the airport there? I guess that's worthy of going on this thread!! Quite fun!! :)

    I have ... never done anything remotely exciting that's worth putting in here  :D 

    It's inspired me to try and live more adventurously though.

    Me too, it's very nice. Was that when you lived in Gibraltar? I had it there - it seemed to be quite popular there and in Spain.

    Haha, I was thinking the same but clutched at straws a little and thought of some.

    I have left home and moved hundreds of miles from anyone I knew to a place I didn’t know (I know lots of people do this but as an agoraphobic with chronic anxiety I can’t believe I ever had the strength to do this!) 

    I’ve played a computer game for more than 24 hours straight (no sleep but I did eat and use the bathroom, lol)

    I have eaten an entire XXL pizza to myself 🤣

    Hopefully I can think of some more as these are looking pretty sad 🤪

    @easy I read that I have eaten chewed octopus. Meaning someone else had chewed it first! :D

  • easyeasy Member Posts: 100 Courageous
    OH NO It was just very chewy. I chewed it for about 10 mins ten gave up and spat it out.

    No, I had swordfish in Halifax!
  • easyeasy Member Posts: 100 Courageous
    It was in Spain on a fishing & touring trip. It was the most chewy thing I have ever had. 
    Cant say I didn't like it as I don't recall it having much taste.
