Yeah, zam, dood.
Anyway...I'd also punch them.
But doesen't it seem weird that people are like lost sheep. Most of them panic, some of them stay, and yet others wonder off to a new location.

Nothing in particular, zam. Does my way of talking confuse you? Then I am sorry, zam.
Edit: Some years ago, we used to get out of school because the winds were too strong, or that it was so cold that the busses won't start.

Has anyone ever ridden in a hot air balloon? I almost did once. :/ I wish I would have, it seems like it'd be so much fun.

That happened to me before in 8th grade, only it was a delay rather than a closing.

<has a fear of heights
Nope, and never will.
Who got the chance to see/own/pet an exotic animal? (birds,snakes,turtles,ect.)
I got to pet a bowa constricter. ^_^ but then it started to wrap itself around my arm and I was like, "hell no." And the handler took it off.

^^; Is this counting animals seen in zoos? [XD Speaking of zoos, I am so awesome. Since I was 14, every birthday has been spent at the Pittsburgh Zoo.]

I'm not sure what kind of snake it was, but it was insanely huge & I got to hold it. This was at some Halloween party I went to years ago. I also got to hold a tarantula. I had no idea that if you drop one, it'll literally crack like an egg.

KAWAII!! I'd love to have a boa constrictor, and a tarantula come to that. I got to cuddle a king pithon. It was really warm

Lets see here, I've done lots' o thing. Some of these things are going to seem out there, but they're all true.

I used to live in a Flordida swamp for about 2 years. The wildlife out there was crazy. Especially the alligators. On a rare occasion, we had to kill one because he wouldn't leave our pond (he ate too much of the fish). So we ended up shooting it, and I had to go in and drag the damn thing out and bury him. He was mostly dead, not all dead so he kept watching the whole time. Talk about creepy. He was about a 5 footer. Once, I heard a gunshot go off at my neighbors so we went to go see what happened. Now, we lived in a very nice house, but some of our neighbors were what you would call "swamp rednecks,' they were good people, just very, ah, rural. By the time we got over there we saw the wife hacking the tail off of a 6-7 foot gator. The husband was standing nearby dressed in fatigues holding a firearm of some sort. Why was she hacking the tail off? To cook it of course. The following day we received a dish of fried gator tail. It was actually quite tasty. I saw loads of other animals - bobcats, venomous snakes, odd lizards, huge insects, foxes, more vultures than one can fathom, and there were even otters out there oddly enough. Largest gator (we estimate) was about 10-12 feet long.

Just recently I went to alaska on a fishing trip. I saw grizzly bears and bald eagles in the wild. I saw the salmon trying to swim upstream to spawn. I saw glaciers. We went whale watching, but didn't see a goddamn thing. We flew in one of the water landing planes (not sure what the name of it is) too.

Lets, random places in the US I've been - I've seen the alamo, the redwoods, washington DC, the smithsonian (everything from licohln's hat to ENIAC), I've been to about 40 states all said, including alaska and hawaii. I've seen lots of obscure stuff that most people wouldn't know (like the Winchester mystery house in san diego), I may list some of them later.

Also recently I visited Europe. We hit up Germany (Munich and Fussen), Switzerland (Lucern) and Austria (Salzburg). While there we visisted an concentration camp (dachau), went to a Mozart concert in Salzburg. The real deal, not one of the campy tourist trap ones. I saw the castles at Neushwanstein (sp) in Fussen. I saw the works of Da Vinci, Durer, Raphael, Rubens (a whole lot of Rubens), Rembrandt, El Grecco, and many other at the Alte Pinachotek (sp) in Munich. We also road a train through the swiss alps. Seeing the mountains and countryside was incredible. Just seeing these cities is something in themselves, they're all so full of history. I love the contrast of old world versus new that we saw everywhere. I could go on and on about all the amazing things I saw there, but I'll stop there. I may try to upload some pics from them.

Military stuff - I was int he air force for 4 years and was F-15 avionics technician.

Ya know, basic training. That is an experience in itself.

It's a hell of a thing to walk down flightline and see all the fighter jets, just to live with them flying around day to day. Looking back it was extraordinary. Even though I was backshop, I got to go out the line every now and then. I remember sitting up on the wings once and see the technician go through all the checks in the cockpit for an antenna we were working on.

Also, just getting to work on the literal "black boxes" that go in our aircraft was quite something. I worked on evrything from radar, weapons systems, cockpit displays+controls, flight control, and (the really cool stuff) the electronic warfare.

I've seen the following aircraft flown in person: B1, B2, F-117, F-14, F-15, F-16, F-18, C-5, C-130, and an intruder (i think that is what they're called). Probably more than all that, but those are the ones that stick out.

I deployed to the middle east in support of OIF and OEF and am technically considered a combat veteran though I was never really in any danger. I'm eligible to join the VFW though I haven't gotten around to it yet. I lived in tent city for a few months, and that is quite an experience. I've worked alongside the british, the australians, the japanese (JSDF), the signaporan (sp), and the mongolians. I got to off base a couple of times. I saw the huge mosques, women and little girls wearing burkas (we call the "ninjas"), camels roaming the desert, I've heard the call to prayer bellow out over the city.

They actually sent me to Las Vegas for training excercises that our fighters were participating in (Red Flag). Since the billeting on base was full, they put us up in a casino for two weeks! It was huge, even though it wasn't on the strip. It had 7 bars open 24 hours a day in addition to all the gambling. It's an odd thing to walk by craps tables on your way to work. I went to the strip a decent bit and saw all the big casinos. I didn't go to any shows, but I did check out a cool Monet exhibit at the Belagio. I gambled a little, but it's really not my thing. I found you can make money at roulette and craps pretty easy, but you really have to know what your doing with cards. That and it's all rigged except craps in my oppinion. I also became a master of mooching free drinks.

On the way down I got ride in an air refueler since the jets (naturally) had to fly down as well. They let me (since I was one of the newest airmen there) go to the back and see them refuel the jets. It's kind of like a reverse cockpit at the back of the plane. It was cool looking down and the seeing the jets fly and fly out. One of the pilots even waved at me - thats how close they were.

They also sent me Okinawa (Japan) for a few a months. First Guam for two weeks, then Okinawa. I did step foot in the mainland, though just for plane changes (Fukuoka and Osaka). Everybody stayed in Guam but me and another got sent to Okinawa to work the electronic warfare stuff since we didn't have the right test equipment in Guam. Needless to say as a geek let loose in Japan I had a blast. I went to the aquarium (where they had whale sharks!) and visited Shurijo castle (same one mentioned in Azumanga Daioh). Mostly I just tried to experience the culture around me. Shopping malls, restaurants, beaches, arcades, everything. It was also quite a treat seeing all the uniformed school girls out and about. Me and a friend I knew who was stationed there explored like crazy, hitting up any random thing that looked cool. I had sushi at Yoshihachi's, and I've never had it's equal. The sushi was amazing and I even tried the blowfish there. I didn't do any diving, but had I been there longer I might have. I bought a ton of crap while I was over there too, mostly anime related but some cultural stuff too.

Those are some highlights from my crazy life, I could keep going and going. I'll probably add some pics and other stories later.

Ive been hit by cars numorous times, had knives thrown at me, been hit in the head with huge rocks and ending up with staples and stiches, been in fights with people with weapons, fallen out of huge trees and landing on rocks, almost drowned about 3 times, been chased by tons of people after pissing them off, fallen off the roof of my house tons of times,slid down ice hills into solid brick walls, fall off of alot of different things, skateboarding injuries, parkour stunts gone wrong. But even with all of that, I have never broken a bone. If you want details on any of that, PM me.
There are lots more, but this post would be way too long if I ever bothered to list them all. Those are just things Ive done that were painfull. There are more, like getting lost, seeing paranormal things, like ghosts. ( They do exist! ). Lots more, just PM me and ask.
