as the title says, does any cool shit ever happen to you?


find a $20.00 bill on the sidewalk... buy a scratch off and win $300... stumble upon a person selling something badass for almost nothing... youre out in the woods when a bear attacks you, but you drop it with your rifle and make the news...

seriously, nothing cool ever happens to me, other than occasionally hooking up with a hot piece of pie at the bar, or beating up her boyfriend at the bar the next weekend.

i never get to watch someone shoot ( or shoot him myself ) a robber ( i know, i shouldnt want to be in this situation ) i never happen to stumble upon that lottery ticket laying on the ground thats worth $1,000...

stuff happens around me all the time, but its pretty weak. never any thing thatll make the news.


So, whats the coolest shit that ever happened to you

I think it all depends on where your "cool" level is set at...

I got to play hockey at Joe Louis Arena 3 times, twice with my brother (which meant a lot).

I got to handle an acquaintances's historic NHL hockey goalie mask collection, worth well into the 6 figures... The collection should be in the Hall of Fame in all honesty.

I got to design the jerseys and all the "stuff" for a charity hockey game vs. a team of ex- Red Wing and NHL players and they all signed a jersey with my name on it and gave it to me (got a lil misty eyed there).

That's "special" then there's "regular special"...

I have a wonderful loving wife

I have money to buy toys

You know, the regular great stuff.

I found a mint condition Darryl Strawberry rookie card at a friends house that he let me have. Too bad Darryl liked hookers and cocaine more then baseball.

Nope

The only cool shit that happens to me is when I think I'm flatass broke, and remember that I left $100 in my back pocket.

And that happens alot.

Does having a lunatic come into a bar and threaten everybody with a running chainsaw count?

I was third row by first base in the Ballpark in Arlington at the Ranger game when Robin Ventura rushed Nolan Ryan, that was something I'll never forget. Taught me the lesson that just because someone is much older than you doesn't mean he can't kick your ass.

All kinds of stuff.

I camped out beside a country music star at Texas Motor Speedway for 4 days one time.

I got to go onto Dale Jr's motorcoach last year, plus be in the pits and garage during "hot" time.

I travel and go see different shit all the time.

I go hunting all over. Including an African bowhunt set in April 07.

I played poker with one of the guys from the World Series of Poker(I've seen him on tv...his name was either Joe or Paul) last week while in Vegas and made him lay down a straight.<-----really proud of that Sorry I didn't get his name but I played for 13 hours straight.

Does developing a rare, (as in 9 out of 10 nurosurgeons in town won't even see me) condition count as cool? Yup, me too

Hmmmm...well, I've almost been killed several times but, through sheer luck of the draw, I walked away each time. I guess that's not so much "cool" as "lucky". It would appear however that the only thing I'm lucky at is staying alive. I have absolutely shithouse luck at everything else.

I think the Gods spared me just to mock me and play cruel tricks on me. I curse them!

I hope they don't turn me into a newt...

Only in gun stuff. Like when I kept running into Rob Leatham, got to shoot a post sample M4A1, etc.
Link Posted: 3/23/2006 2:04:17 PM EDT
No.

I meet guys all the time that do stuff like buys an old persons car with something like 5000 miles on it for 500 bucks.
I am never the guy that finds that smoking deal on an HK91 for $500.
I'm not the guy that someone just walks up to and offers a $250K a year job just because.

I have my own business, make good coin, have a great wife, have Cowboys season tickets, have a Rangers mini-plan package, have cool guns, have a CCW permit, have a fat cat, got to serve 8 years in the USMC, got to see the entire friggin Marine Corps kick Saddams ass, got a Combat Action Ribbon. Really, everyday is a holiday and my life is cool. But nothing ever happens out of the ordinary, except I got a man hug from Rayfield Wright one time...that was cool.

I once got lactated on by a hot chick at a concert. Does that count?

I felt something wet on the back of my neck, and thought, "ok what asshole just spilled beer on me."

I turn around and there was this hot babe on the this dudes shoulders, she had no shirt, no bra, completly topless. Milking her titties over everyone in the crowd. Even Rob Zombie was pointing at her during his performance.

1) I got to be in one of those money machines where the money flies around and you grab what you can

2) I won a new computer

3) I found $20 laying on the floor of a department store

4) I found $40 laying on the ground at Jacobs Field

5) I am one of 6 people selected out of 400 for my internship

Those are the biggest so far.

ETA: Met the departing Secretary of the Interior yesterday and had my picture taken with her.

Met/escorted Sec. of the Army Harvey around.

Met Gen. Abizaid (CENTCOM commander)

Shook hands/made a video to send home with Todd Tiahrt, Kansas congressman.


Got picture taken at the infamous "Cross Sabres" in Baghdad.



That's about it really...

Wasn't Ventura also Nolan Ryan's 3000th strikeout victim?


I got an extra $40 from the ATM.

If by 'cool' you mean, getting divorced, not getting any child support, and finding out that you owe $550 because the other half quit their job that was carrying the insurance for our daughter, then yes.

But if not, no....

Probably mundane stuff for a lot of people, but . . .

Got to hang out for a while in the Astro's locker room before a game once. Got a ball autographed by several of them. I still don't know jack about baseball.

Got to stand in the heating oil pit of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange while trading was going on around me. I was asked in advance to please keep my hands to my sides or in my pockets.

Got to drive an M48 tank when I was a wee beasty. I forget how old, maybe 12 or so. Having a dad that's the XO for an armor batallion was nice. I had to prove first that I could adequately push the brake pedal on the simulator first, though. Once in a while, my mom would drop me off at the armory during the summer and I got free run of the big toys until it was time for my dad to go home. That kicked ass.

Have gotten to ride in several Robinson R22 helicopters and have video of some really funky maneuvers that I wouldn't have thought possible had I not been on board at the time.

Watching my boy pop out of Mrs. BlammO's nether regions was quite a treat! Yes, he was a baby at the time.

There's tons of other stuff with varying degrees of niftiness (or lack thereof).

Scutton- your thread was actually the reason i started this thread!!

i cant say anything "good" doesnt happen to me... im 23, have my own business, brand new F30 Crew Cab, 2 chicks at the same time? been there, done that. stripper? plowed two of those, but at different times. im a fairly good looking, well built guy. i have baddass guns and a baddass 4wheeler. win alot of fights? well i train for them, and had quite a few unsuspecting people "try me" to their demise. i have the best group of friends i could ask for, and we party like its nobody's business.....


but cool things just dont happen to me, things that make my friends go "did you hear about Rob winning $5,000 on a scratch off last week?" or "Did you see Rob on the news for rescuing that family from the burning car?" or thwarting a robbery attempt with my CCW.

i want something BIG to happen to me.

Nope. Seems that lately stupid shit has been happening to me. Moved to a bigger apartment, got slammed with a bunch of bills, and just got shafted on my annual review... only got 50% of my bonus, which prevents me from getting that much ahead.

As long as nothing else shitty happens to me, I'll be alright.

Well thank you, I appreciate the sentiment!

And I have to say 23 years in remission is pretty impressive - you may just be my new hero.

Not very often. I have a good life, but as far as strokes of notable good luck go, no. I think we found $80 once in the parking lot of a hotel about 4 years ago. That was as lucky as I've ever been.

I get to be a part of the effort to bring cell service to my corner of the world. Is it that cool? No, but I think its cooler than fuck. One of those things I hope someone cares enough about later down the road that I can say yeah, I was there, and they say "Hey, thats cool".

But now, Im so damn tired of this shit I just want to flip my fone open and have it work.
