    Held the grip strength (L+R combined) record at my HS for more than 20 years, until they stopped the testing.

Ended up walking out, getting my $2000 CASH downpayment back and buying a sportbike...
    And yet, here I am...

    Still true...

    Some others:

    - I was shot in the ass fleeing a gal's home years ago, obviously pre-Big Shirl. She told me her brother was staying with her while he was "home". Turned out her HUSBAND worked an odd shift and came home early. Didn't even know I had gotten shot, I thought I gave myself a charlie horse skidaddling outta there. Noticed an odd shaped hole in my lower buttock (just above my hamstring) when I got home and drove myself to the ER. Turned out I had a .22 round in there. I was so drunk, to this day I have NO idea where I was or the route I took home.

    - I lost my virginity to my parent's housekeeper back in junior high. She was a smoke show and most likely started me down my lifelong path of my affinity for slender gals (Big Shirl isn't really big and her name isn't "Shirl").

    - I did time in NH's Shock Incarceration Program for a violent crime.

    - I wasn't in high school for long, but I once threw a chair out a window of my college prep biology class. I also threw a trash can at the teacher before I pinned him up against the wall.

    - I was on the Uncle Gus show.

    - I was once in a Benson's Wild Animal Kingdom television commercial.

    - I was forced to defend myself against the boyfriend of a girl I was banging and ended up beating the snot out of the dude. He subsequently shot himself in the head later that night. 30 years later and this still bugs the hell out of me.

    - I spent an entire week with Evel Knievel and his sons Robbie & Kelly. My father was working for the local ABC Sports affiliate and got assigned to the event when they were at Holy Cross Stadium. It was Robbie & Kelly's first public jumps. Got to hang out with and get close up & personal with Evel, he took me right under his wing. I got to walk the ramps as they were being built, hang out in his trailers (there was one where I WASN'T allowed), sit on his bikes, and go to some of the press conferences as his guest.

    - Some friends and I once tore apart a police cruiser, even ripping the old light bar right off the top of it. The whole time the cop was up at the house while his cruiser was at the end of the driveway.

    - A friend and I once slashed every single tire on every single cruiser of the Bedford NH police dep't.

    - I accidentally set a pasture on fire on my parent's street when I was a kid. Some meathead down the street inexplicable actually confessed and ended up at the youth detention center for six months because of that. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around that.

    - Freshman year in high school, I passively tried to bang my girlfriend's mother. It went absolutely nowhere.

    - A cop busted up one of my parties when I was in my 20's. He & I had a history and got into some words. He offered to fight me off the record, which I obliged. Although I fared pretty well and did more damage than received, I was no match for his submission moves. To his credit, he manned up and didn't arrest me. We ended up actually being civil to one another after that.

    - Any year class electives were held, I won class clown. Many other times I was voted best personality - although some years I shared that particular distinction. I've also won best hair (I used to have a Jewfro).

    The fact that this is the most pedestrian point in your post is absolutely wild.

    Re: Strange Factoids About Yourself....

    - I have a British father and Southern mother

    - I'm the first person in my family for multiple generations WITHOUT a Bachelor's degree (working on it!)

    - Born in San Antonio, moved to southern NH when I was 2, UK for 2 years and back to NH, then NC when I was 15. I'm a weird Southern-Yankee-Brit hybrid.

    - When i was 26 my best friend's youngest brother shot himself in the head in front of us.

    - I didn't have a beard until I met my wife. She insisted on it, turns out she was right.

    - I'm awesome at starting personal projects, suck at completing them.

    - I haven't owned a street bike since 2015, can't seem to commit to one I want enough to bring home.

    - I was medically discharged from the Air Force at 20 years old (knee,) never made it through training. This is probably the biggest disappointment of my life.

    My brother smashed a wooden chair on my back then picked up whatever was left of the chair and hit me in the face with. 4 broken ribs and 3 teeth. One of them dead center that you can still see the dental work on. I think we were 14 and 12 give or take couple of years.

    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"?

    Re: Strange Factoids About Yourself....

    My sister has run over me with a horse, kicked me in the balls with cowboy boots turning a nut black, shot me, chased me down and ran over me on a 4-wheeler while I was on a sled, put me through a windshield from the outside in, hit me a different time with the same car and rolled over the roof, and worst of all tricked my grandmother into hitting me with a yard stick. And she wonders why she isn't on my Christmas card list.

    Oh, and I was voted most likely to succeed. Yeah, tricked those fuckers...

    I got hypothermia and nearly drowned during (I know this sounds weird) high level boys scout survival training. I was saved by other boy scouts using the techniques we were supposed to be pretending to practice.

    I've learned much later in life the boy scouts kills a ton of kids. I never thought it was dangerous at the time, but looking back at it almost no one in charge of us had any significant training. In my case, and I'm sure many other they put kids lives at risk unnecessarily, mostly because of their ignorance of the danger.

    Yes, but did they or didn’t they touch (the lives) of young boys?

    The girl I've been with for ten years has 2 boys, one is in Afghanistan the other is 13. Point of that fucking story is we tried to get the younger one into scouts and I didn't like any of it. Decided I'd be a man and teach the boys myself, had the kid shooting a 12ga at 6. Took them camping, hiking, boating, climbing you name it.

    Eta point of that story was I'm not a fan

    -My only celebrity encounter was Apollo Ohno. I was at the Olympic Training Center having lunch in the cafeteria with a teammate. We were watching him go up and down the flight of stairs hopping on one leg, then with the other leg. Over and over. When he was done he grabbed food and asked my and my buddy if he could eat with us. Pretty cool.

    The dudes wicked short, with legs like tree trunks

    It’s incredibly weird when a grown ass man over 25 wears some sort of scout uniform. It’s like you know he has kiddy porn hidden somewhere.
