I don't mean knocking over gas'n'gos, cooking up the best meth on your block or being a Wall St. investment banker. Something that required some finnesse and real skill like a safe cracker, art forger, cat burgler, etc.

I had all the palladin/delta press books that I ordered out of the back of the National Enquirer (Al Gore hadn't even thought of inventing the Internet yet) when I was about 10-12 years old:

Lockpicking, Counterfeit ID made easy, Methods of Disguise, etc. I saved up my pennies and bought those and a few others without my mom or dad knowing about it and read them cover to cover. I think my dream was to be more like a James Bond secret agent type but that involves many of the same skills that master criminals have

Heavens no! My brothers, my sister and I were raised to be responsible adults. The idea of doing anything other than working for a honest living did not cross our minds.

I thought it would be cool to be a smuggler until I was about 13. I thought they were all like Glenn Frye on Miami Vice- You know, hang out, play guitar, fly airplanes and have adventures. I never thought they did anything illegal.

No never did.

I loved reading about , Capone, Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly

I read 'The Stainless Steel Rat' by Harry Harrison in eights grade, and thought about being an interstellar bank robber for a while.

I used to think it would be cool to be kidnapped... I think it was an early fetish of being tied up coming to life.... dirty

When I was officially a kid, "The Untouchables" was in its first run on television. So, everyone wanted to be Al Capone or Frank Nitti, etc. Of course, my driver's license says I'm n longer a kid, but it still am. The trouble is, it lacks panache: you can steal more with a pen or a computer then you ever could with a "Chicago piano."

Any kid who watched westerns wanted to be an outlaw, me included.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 4:11:11 PM EDT
Sort of.
My grand dad used to have a subscription to Soldier of Fortune back in the day.
I thought it would be cool to be a South African Merc fighting the commies in places nobody heard of.
That's about as close as I ever came to wanting to be an outlaw.

Never...

Nope.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster...
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 5:28:21 PM EDT
I still do, and it's called a healthy imagination.

Well, OK, but only because you asked nicely.

I always thought it would be cool to be a hitman.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:22:07 PM EDT
I'm 48 years old. Anybody who's 48 and isn't an outlaw is doing something wrong.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:22:21 PM EDT
If I choose to carry I'm a criminal. does that count?
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:26:45 PM EDT
I always wanted to be a pirate.

We had this guy that would hook up in our harbor in Beaufort, NC where I grew up.

He billed himself as a pirate, and, all us kids bought it hook line, sinker.

Thinking back, he was just another boat kook........But it was such a bad ass fantasy.

Guess that's as close as I came.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:29:01 PM EDT
I think it is cooler to catch criminals.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:29:29 PM EDT
Not me...I was thinking about how cool it would be to off criminals (as a cop). I even had a little pair of JBs, six shooters (easily convertible when I wanted to be a cowboy and kill indians) and MG. The family dog would sometimes have to second for the bad guy when my bother/sister werent into being shot. I think I missed my calling as an ATF agent. Then again some would say that the same as being a criminal.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 3:29:55 PM EDT
Hell, I'm 47 with a clean record and an upstanding member of the community, so to speak, and I would like to give it a shot. Knocking over a bank, armored car. And no small shit either. Just the big bucks. I think "Heat" did it too me. What a f'ing rush.

Beyond that I have wanted to revolt against my gov't for damn near as long as I can remember. As long as those undeserving get power and abuse it I will want to crush them if I can.

Yup, drjarhead, WMD.

I always wanted to sell hookers and Blow to people that had money they didn't know what to spend it on.

No. I wanted to be a Merc' and shoot people like that for high pay and poon! Where did I go wrong...?

I still do, every time I see the movie HEAT........

No, risk not equal to reward.

I don't know if it would be worth it or not. Maybe it's not as glamorous as people think.

I thought it would be cool to be a vigilante..

When I was little I wanted to be a pirate. As I grew older I wanted to be Indiana Jones.

This thread reminds me of the episode of Gilligan's Island with Don Rickles as the Kidnapper. Ginger plays psychotherapist with him:

Ginger: Tell me about your childhood.
Norbert Wiley (Rickles): I grew up in a bad neighborhood.
Ginger: Did you play games?
Norbert: Yea,,Cops N Robbers,,,I was always the Cop, never the good guy.
Ginger: The Cop is the good guy!
Norbert: Not in my neighborhood.
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 9:09:36 PM EDT
Hell yeah. As a kid I had three perspective jobs that I wanted as an adult:
1. Police Officer
2. Outlaw Biker
3. Pirate

I have almost achieved #1, #3 seems a little outdated. I wouldnt be tacking the missenmast anymore. So, if I dont get hired on as a LEO at least I can learn how to ride a Hog

I thought it would be cool to have a hideout in some old warehouse or something, like on batman, from watching batman.
