    Re: Strange Factoids About Yourself....


    in 1979 I stole a piece of pure metallic sodium from the science lab at school because it was cool stuff to experiment with in tiny slivers, so a piece the size of an apple would be cooler, right? Nope.
    Well, yes, but no. I caused an explosion. It was a whole big deal in the news etc. I blew a hole in my right leg and got shrapnel in my right arm and hand and ended up in hospital for 3 months for skin grafts from my left leg to right. It still looks pretty nasty 40 years later. When I went back to school I got a standing ovation in assembly. When I reconnect with old school friends on facebook, they always say "didn't you blow up the school once"?

    When I was 14, maybe 15, the same guy who sold us booze also sold us 1/2 sticks of dynamite. How we didn't end up in the morgue or the joint I'll never know.

    The back of my right hands sweats at random times. A lot. Sometimes it will behave for a while, then be a complete asshole and sweat for hours. I can run it under ice water or stick it in snow, doesn't slow it down. Makes shaking hands a bitch sometimes, but not right now.

    I’ve been chased by police on two separate occasions. I was a teenager both times.

    Once in a ‘work’ truck, stopped, 3 cruisers boxing me in, guns drawn etc. admittedly I didn’t realize they were following me for quite some time.

    Second one was on foot, in the woods, k9s and cops chasing me. I ran and hid and was never found.

    I won't arm wrestle for this reason. Not worth it.

    Unrelated but I broke my foot a couple years back and everyone assumed motorcycle/bicycle/hiking etc. I tripped going out my back door and rolled my ankle so bad it splintered the bone off a tendon's attachment.

    I think onions taste like garbage, ruin most food they're in, and that people use them and green peppers as a crutch for pretending they can cook. Fight me. But we're gonna arm wrestle. It's okay, I can't cook either.

    Strange, but not terribly interesting.

    Friend of mine grabbed a little slice of it and dipped it in the kerosene to "seal it" then put it in his pocket. Needless to say, the kerosene didn't last long and the stuff ignited (and probably the coating of kerosene too) and set his pants on fire, right quick. I wasn't in the following class with him but heard his leg started to smoke for a second then poof instant flames, he jumped up and ripped his pants off. Got burnt pretty bad, got suspended, not allowed in Chem class anymore.

    I've spent more time in the front of a police cruiser then I have the back. It's not really strange, but probably surprising to a few people.

    That's pretty much the same thing I did, but with a bigger piece.

    It was disgusting. Radial fracture of the humerus. I had mild ptsd from it, i couldn't get the sound and the feeling of it breaking out of my head for quite some time.

    I watched someone snap their arm in the same fashion (radial humerus crunch) trying to whip a softball from right field to home plate. I can still see it go noodly and hear it to this day. I can feel it in my teeth like nails on a chalkboard just typing this.
