    Fun fact about myself... when I was in college I dressed up as Vader and went to my French class that way. Then afterwards I went to the undergrad library and asked them if they had the plans for the rebel base. The librarian there said "ummmm... maybe try the map library." Side note: I'm 5'3" so I made a very short, round Vader.

    (Congrats to Deadman on the sobriety. I'll have a tonic with lime.)

    This is cracking me up!!! .....but it's good to know where to find those plans .....πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ€˜πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

    Loved football as a kid and it truly was my first love of sports. Got hurt pretty bad and decided to venture out into hoops.

    I spent exhaustive amounts of time practicing at the local college gym because dad worked there and we got access by proxy as kids anytime it wasn't being used. Also because they had the 3pt line way before high school in KS. Spent much of my middle school/high school years working out there, often times with the whole gym to myself.

    My senior year was the first year in KS we had the 3pt line. That season I hit end-of-game 3s to beat our county rivals in both home and away games. I set the record for number of 3s in a game and season (which wasn't saying much being the first season). Ironically,
    I think the single game record may still stand......
    πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

    We were all close friends having played sports against/with each other outside school and I got a lot of grief from them about it. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

    Went on to be a multi-sport athlete in college.

    I have driven hundreds of thousands of miles over the course of my lifetime

    You can only count half of those miles though as the other half was free πŸ˜‚

    Same.
    Well, I can kinda whistle, but it's the wrong way (I suck air in instead of out) and it doesn't sound the same.

    In 4th Grade I faked an eye exam because I wanted to have glasses. A week later, when I realized I could not wear them, I told my parents I was magically cured.

    πŸ˜‚. I have 15 pairs of glasses and each has 10 different coloured lenses, none are prescription.

    AGT watch out. :)
    I'm actually jealous, I've always wanted to wiggle my ears. Always wanted to touch my tongue to my nose too. Ah well. But I can roll my tongue. And that old bar trick of placing a pile of quarters on your elbow then flip your hand back down and catch them all without dropping one? I got pretty good at that. :)

    Back when I was I school, I was told to write a few pages about anything I wanted, for english class. I had trouble deciding what to write about as most things of interest to me would take more than a couple of pages to write about. I asked if I can make it longer, and after getting the ok I decided to write a paper/thesis on connections between brain disorders and violent criminals. So about a month after handing this in, I had 2 people come to my school to talk to me about the paper, which my English teacher sent them, saying they were from oxford university and they wanted me to go study there with them.

    Oxford is an amazing place. I enjoy going to England any chance I get.

    By the time I was 13yrs old in 7th grade I hated school, wanted nothing to do with my parents and cared about very little except boys.
    Mostly older boys.
    My poor parents, lol.
