    Just starting...
    Got to drive a NASCAR at a superspeedway. By myself. (Manual transmission skills required.) Two occaisions - 8 laps each.

    My top speed: 142 MPH. (That's 236 Canadian.)

    I was reminded because I was invited to go again today, but I couldn't. And it rained so the top speed recorded today was 105.

    Best I've driven is was a mclaren 12C and a race prepped S2000. The S2000 was way more fun because I actually got to drive it at the limit (sideways :D). Just did one 30-100 full throttle sprint in the mclaren.

    fastest I got clocked at on my snowboard was 71.1km/h (about 45mph), the hill is too small to gain any more speed(hopefully I will disprove that this winter). Can't imagine going down at 74 mph I wanna try!!!!

    I've also been chased by pirates off Somalia, swam with sharks at Cocos Island, spent a day wandering around Midway Island, gone through the Suez and Panama canals, and worked on diesel engines large enough to have ladders inside the crank case.

    I was working on a ship that was on a PL480 food aid contract. In exchange for North Korea demolishing a cooling tower at a nuke plant the US donated a bunch of grain. We hauled a load from Kalama Washington to Nampo and offloaded for nearly a month. You can see the dock at this location: 38.722439,125.404062. When we first entered NK waters a group of government officials boarded and searched the ship for contraband, collected up all of the cell phones and cameras and secured them in a cabinet that they locked and sealed. They also shut off our satellite comms and AIS. I went outside when we were going through a set of locks and had a good laugh as they filled the empty space around my ship with small boats. When we came out of the lock all of the small boats got slammed around and beat all to hell by our prop wash (same thing happens in Panama when they put yachts behind the ship). Over a three day period they took groups from the ship into Pyongyang for a tour. They unlocked two cameras so that we could take pictures while on the tours. After all of the tours NK officials went through the images and deleted anything that was considered objectionable. What they didn't realize was that after the last tour they didn't lock the cameras up and we were able to make copies of everything. After we left and went to Singapore we found out that Kim Jung Il had likely had a stroke during our time in port.

    I'm also probably one of the few people who have watched Team America and read 1984 while in North Korea :)
