Being a guest on a "reality" TV show.

 

You poor soul.....

 

For me, right now nothing is really coming up, if it has it's been awhile as I tend try & stay in a comfort zone when it comes to things I like doing. 

 

Oh, speaking of the Pentecost, I'm pretty sure some people in my town celebrated as the Mexican candles were hit hard last night............:rock:

Question June 2nd.

What is one thing you're glad you tried but would never do again?

 

Ziplining. Loads of fun, but now that I've done it, I feel no urge to do it again.

Not one, but three:

  1. Writing my doctoral dissertation.  Three years of possibly the largest, hardest project I ever did in my life.  Many nights of staring at my computer screen and not wanting to write another word of it.  If not for the support of my wife towards the end (“You’re so close!  It would be a waste to give up!”), I would not have finished.  I’m glad I pushed through, and the opportunities it has given me, but it’s unlikely I’d ever willingly go through again.
  2. Competing in a rail handcar competition.  A coworker suggested it, and we organized a team of four.  On the day of the competition, we realized our situation — four software engineers against all of the body-building gyms in the area.  The four-person handcars were HUGE — not like the two-person ones I’d seen in film.  Our first run we gave our all, and came in a close second to our match-up; but the race timing sensor failed, we didn’t get a time for our run, and had to redo it immediately. But our muscles were completely spent, and not one of us was able to get back up and try again, so we didn’t qualify.  One of my coworkers went off and threw up his latte in the bushes, and I spent the next few days moving as little as possible.
  3. Marijuana.  Back in college it came out at a party, offered to me, and someone said like:  “Nah, he’s too innocent to try it.”  I decided to give them a shock and take a deep draw.  (My parents were smokers then, and I was accustomed to breathing cigarette smoke.) No problem at first, but it had an odd effect on me; I spent the rest of the evening pacing around with hyperactive energy, unable to calm down sit or relax.  I would not smoke it again, and I would tell my kids not to, either.  But at least if someone says: “Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!”  I can say: “I’ve tried it... and I knock it, sir, I knock it!”

I absolutely love ziplining, but I can see how it terrifies some people. I especially love the ones where you get to walk up a hill/mountain to the top of the zip line. 

 

I really want to go on one of the "Superman" versions someday. How awesome does that look? :lol:

Roller Coasters. Not an awful experience, it was ok, but not something I have any desire to do again.

If I could help it I would also say flying. The whole experience is unpleasant from start to finish. But, living on an island I don't have much choice given how much the ferry is...

It's been awhile since I've tried anything, so I'm not sure.

 

I do agree on the gin, though. It seemed like I should like it with all its natural flavors! But instead it just tasted like I tried to drink a fancy lady's fake pine candle. :lol:

Go on a real roller coaster. I had always wanted to try it, but now I know for sure that me and G-forces aren't friends.

 

My wife, on the other hand, went back on 2 more times. (Mind you, this is the same person that had once gone on a roller coaster the day before she gave birth)

Wax museums. I went to one when I was a kid and was traumatized by one. It was a vampire that mechanically "jumped" out of its coffin scaring the daylights out of me. I've been to one since then but it was still creepy and uncomfortable. 0/10 do not recommend.

My masters program. I loved it cause I kept learning new mathematical theories and applications, but I also went in broke, depressed due to breaking up with my ex of 6 years, and depressed due to the lack of ability to find a job in electrical engineering. I survived it and learned from those experiences.  Had 21 dollars in my bank account when I was done, but no loans! Although, I have a masters i am also not using... T__T

Nothing really, other then it's like drinking a pine tree.  I actually got really sick after drinking gin the first time.  I also react very badly to getting pricked by juniper needles.  I suspect that I am allergic to something in Juniper and so I reacted badly to something in the Gin.

Awww, that's unfortunate.  Allergies suck; I'm glad I don't have any anymore.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, SEPTEMBER** 2020 Edition, **brought to you by the number 7, and the Roman Empire.
       
       
      The latest iteration of the rules follows (LAST EDIT: 1 SEPT 2020):
       
      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7). 
      1.5. Should I fail to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy & former Quisitors, will probably step in and post one (but see rule 3.5).
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted as early as 1 Minute after Midnite or as late as Noon CDT (Central Daylight Time, U.S. )
      3.5 @MusicalFeline  is primary backup this month. MF, please note this is a ^ 12 hour span ^ but if I haven't managed by then jump in.
      4. Anyone is encouraged to suggest future questions. Send a PM to the current or any previous Quisitor. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question feels like TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often be formatted as  two or three day quests, or multi-part related questions, posted on Fridays or Saturdays.
       
       
      All HAIL W.O.O.F!

      By Velrock on Thingiverse.  I used a lighter winter color scheme for the pack.  I know they look all cute and fluffy but they are really vicious hunters.  I did these three as part of my July 4th holiday weekend Paint Binge. 
       

       
      I used a combination of Secret Weapon bases and base inserts.
