Thanks to @janer1967 for this idea.

Here we share unusual things we have done - things that people wouldn't expect we have done or things that most people haven't done!

For example a couple from me:

I have been locked in a police prison cell.
I have driven around an F1 circuit.

I realise I am not very interesting and I've ran out of interesting things...I'm sure you can come up with more! :smiley:

Over to you!

    I once saved the life of a hedgehog by gently rolling it across a busy road to the other side. (Well I wasn’t going to pick it up..they’re prickly! 🤣)
    This image has brightened up my evening @leeCal. Adorable!

    I'm also quite boring, and can't really think of anything right now...

    I've had a poem published in a book (it was in primary school and there wasn't much competition but we can gloss over that detail).

    Nice thread @66Mustang!

    … killed a man in Reno just to watch him die…

    On a more serious note, was once arrested for alleged shoplifting minutes after a guest appearance in the same police station where I was pad minutes earlier to appear in an ID parade.

    It’s highly overrated. 
    Exciting stuff is also, often, incredibly scary too.
    Telling a tale of being stuck on a mountain ridge as a gale force wind decided to come through, it was so strong it was pushing me over the edge, there was a couple lying down in the snow to wait it out she was clearly terrified, as was I. The only way down was a black run with all of the snow ripped off it, leaving just ice. Going over the top I knew that there would be a few crashes on the way down, so carefully planning which snow (I hoped, that could have been ice too) once moving my recent ice skiing lesson really paid off and I managed to hit the bottom without crashing once, which was a relief, as crashing on a run that steep can end very badly, as you won’t stop until you hit thick, soft snow, a tree, or the bottom !

    Really exciting to tell…Scary as heck to experience.
    it takes quite a lot to get my adrenaline running now!

    I have had brain surgery that lasted 4.5 hours 
    I have had kidney stones three times
    I have let my family down by becoming disabled.
    I am a person with epilepsy not an epileptic, my illness doesn't define me.

    @woodbine you haven't let anyone down it was hardly your choice to become disabled 
    Your support on here helps others and you no doubt wouldn't be here without your disability

         I have played snooker with a very famous (now deceased) player... no surprise he won!!
         I have saved the life of a giant tortoise that didn't need saving as it was only going for a walk  (only in Turkey)
         The rest of my life is quite boring  :(

    You have let nobody down.

    not just being polite, don’t think this way (although I suspect we all do) and keep facing forward!

    You're not the only one who has let your family down, I have too. I went to Medical Assisting College and made it to graduation with a B. Worked at a Physicians office and failed. I no longer work in the Medical Field.  :(

    You have failed nobody.
    you are still being a success, in a different field.
    I went from high flying sales management position, earning fantastic money, to benefits of £100 a week…I felt I had failed, everybody, we had to sell cars, houses, all sorts of things I had become VERY attached to.
    I took a good year to finally accept what was happening, now I am feeling a success again, building guitars, and selling the wood to make them.
    (still skint though)
