    We are the .1%. I went to Catholic school and I was an altar boy for many years. I had access to the very extensive wine cellar that we had in the rectory. I remember pre-opening the bottles of wine before mass and putting in the plug so it was easy to remove during the service. I had my first dabble with red wine when I was 8, and had a few masses where I was buzzed and didn't even know what a buzz was. I never lit anything on fire, but I do remember serving some Novenas where I couldn't light that goddamn incense, or the candle lighter stick thing kept going out and I couldn't line up the flame in it with the candle that was 3' taller than me. I got the priest eye-rolls on a few occasions, but you have me beat by getting "fired" from a voluntary service!

    After Marine boot me and some fellow Marines went to the local e-club.......on the navy base. After a few drinks we were having a good time with some single ladies and this big navy guy (and by big I mean 6'6" and all of 275lbs) got upset us "Jarheads" were taking the prime choice. We were close to the front door, but he ended up cornering me. I didn't even think at this point about the end result, I just wanted to get out of there alive with my buddies! So I full force side slammed his knee with a kick. Leg went out from underneath him and we ran like hell...right into the MPs. Spent the first night after graduation in the brig with my buddies. I received a verbal reprimand from the CO. I found out later that I ended that navy guy's career. Snapped the knee at the joint. I felt like shit, but I felt I had no choice. He would have beat the crap outta me. Looking back I am lucky I didn't get charges.

    This summer, in Canada, I SCUBA'd a man-made formation no one knew about, nor has been seen for over 220 years. Also got some coconut fiber from a booby-trap laid just as long ago.

    Little bit o' luck on the diving part, and a bit more knowledge on the coconut fiber.

    The bay was mapped a number of years ago with sonar (think that was it), but not very well. We were intrigued by a few things. Upon exploration, those things ended up being nothing, but we found these large rocks laid out in a pattern and pointing somewhere particular. They had not shown up on the maps because the sonar skipped this section, and no one had ever dove in this area.

    For the coconut fiber, the boobytrap was tripped a loooong time ago and this stuff was well known. Some folks had already found coconut fiber decades before (which aided the trap), and a semi-sane man took a few hours to help re-locate one of the "fingers" of the trap that had the fibers. Long story short, we found more of that fiber which was placed there when the trap was built.

    Was exciting to be there in both of those!

    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!!!!
