This is a question Biggest opportunity I've blown

Not Alan Partridge tells us: "I was once offered the chance to co-present a programme on national radio. Audience of millions, but blew up spectacularly, my entire contribution being the rustling of paper in the background. I was that bad, I have since burned my copy of the pilot show." Tell us about your big break, and how you messed it up.

Fairground Ride Terror
In a bid to prove to my friends I wasn't scared of being thrown around at great velocities, I boarded a platform ride that swirled around on one axis. It was the tamest ride in the amusement park, and it's maximum height was 3 metres. With approximately 30 onlookers (mostly parents of the content young children sitting either side of me) I screamed instantly. Loudly. 20seconds later the operator stopped the ride and told me to get off because I was scaring the other kids.

Parents don't like it when a grown up climbs onto the roundabout.
