Unique Things: Has Anyone Done Them?

Seems at least a half dozen people on my friend's list have done this overnight.

* Post 3 things you've done in your lifetime that you don't think anybody else on your friends list has done.
* See if anybody else responds with "I've done that." If they have, you need to add another!(2.b., 2.c., etc...)
* Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.


1) released a moderately popular add-on for a wildly popular DOOR game (okay, who remembers what DOOR games are?) [[ three, sort of, actually; one for LORD and one for both LORD and LUNATIX ]] nibot not only remembers, but released a moderately+ popular add-on for LORD. The worst part is trying to remember if I'd known that at some point because it seems like it would have come up given other context I remember...

1a) won a radio call-in contest? ((I figure this is a common enough occurrence but still odds are in my favor that nobody else on my friends list has even tried to win something like that)) :) I just happened to be a passenger in a car when something I wanted was offered and ... I don't remember if you had to be caller n or first caller with right answer or something. Tickets to a classical performance in SF. :) Nope nope. zekedragon won tickets to a thing he was so disinterested in he won't even describe it. ;)

1b) Was given a free account to an adult site as part of a job interview (I was doing the interviewing--the adult site in question was relevant work experience by the interviewee; this is probably specific enough that nobody else will get it? It was an interesting experience, anyway).

2) had a site listed as a yahoo site of the day (my really big claim to fame so far. yes, it is a very small really big claim to fame. sadly, poemranker has lost its verve. toying with trying to revive it, some...)

3) dropped my motorcycle on the bay bridge. Barely hurt for sliding from ~ 70mph.

random notes that didn't qualify for top 3:
x. created a role-playing character that others still play ten years later.
y. built a mars colony (umm. right. ;) it was a first or second grade project that I barely remember.
z. officially taught a high school class when I was 18; unofficially taught a high school class half the year when I was 16.

Which high school classes? And do I know that RPG character, or?

Freewalker, of course. Though Ken still wins with Spirit, however much I've changed her.

I am very happy to say I cannot claim any of those, Kaolin. Well, #2 would be okay. But the others? Yay for that being unique to you :D

yup, yup, Freewalker. :)

In highschool I basically took over digital circuits when the teacher quit (came up with assignments/worksheets and gave them to the permanent sub).

In college, I answered an ad in the Daily Cal for a private school and wound up teaching an intro to programming course with Java to a few differently interested students on some horridly ancient hardware (some of them wouldn't do the 16 colors the JRE required to run (graphics or no)). I did a horrible job of it.

Then there was teaching math 1A sections our freshman year since the TA couldn't remember anything that basic...

Spring semester 1996. 8-9:30 lectures, I think. We took turns staying awake :)

The title sounds very similar to a line in a Chuck Palahniuk book. But I'm unsure if that's a common line in life anyways. lol

Ha! I too released a popular door-addon for LORD!

(Legend of the Red Dragon Gambling Casino!)

those were the days...

Crap, I think I played that on someone's system. :HEH:

Dragon's Castle was the popular one. Hospital Lobby less so, but people were still sending in registrations for both years later... so crazy. :)

Crap. So. By the rules I've got to come up with something else...

Those were definitely the days.

Crap. :)

I hate to do this but...
Your newest 1 isn't unique either. I won a radio call in for some tickets to some concert, one I'd rather not describe since I had no interest in it at all, I just wanted a shot at the car they were giving away.
