» Strict Parents

Still not sure why really, but....
...Back in the mid nineties, one of my friends wasn't allowed to go to the local "Laser Quest" / "Quaser" centre as was the then fad, because his parents (whom were a fair bit older than the average) firmly believed that "lasers are the weapons of the future and they didn't want their son being trained to fight in future wars" So being a good bunch of lads, we went without him!... haven't seen him in years..... oddly

» Tramps

Fickle Bummers
Whilst walking through Birmingham's office sector with a friend, we walked passed a hobo ruffian asking for change for food. Ironically, it was my friends birthday and she had brought a load of cakes for her work collegues. Offering said cake to said hobo, he pushed it away saying "Eugh. I DON'T LIKE THAT!" Seems beggers can be choosers after all!

» Mistaken Identity

Only the one time....
Once, while enjoying a quiet lemonade or five in a local(ish) pub. (My actual local is full of chavs wanting a fight) A random bloke approched my collective and asked, quite openly, If I was Danny Wallace, of Castaway and Dave Gorman fame, we were all so taken aback, he wouldn't take "no" for an answer* so I signed his copy of "Yes Man" in the most illegible scrawl possible as to avoid any possible confusion it had really been signed by anyone who could actually write. He seemed more than happy though.

*This, inconveniently being the truth

» When Animals Attack

Oh, they keep crowbars in each room incase.
Went to the house of a school chum at 14. rang doorbell, door opened, then family rotweiler greeted me by barging past friend and shaking my firmly by my arm I drew up to cover my face with. Pleased with this, it retreated back into the house.

On explaining events to older brother that evening, he replied, oh yeah, I heard they have a crowbar in each room incase the dog goes crazy. Thanks for sharing that with me earlier.

Ahem... rooms full of people who kindly donate their bodies to science.... cut in all directions! No real feeling about it... except the gent sliced vertically *all* the way down the middle. Kept my legs crossed all day!
