What have you done that tickles you ? I once hit the ceiling with a splash from a bomb of the top board. I also got my hand on the FA amateur cup when my team brought it home. -

As a 12 year old boy in Winnipeg Manitoba I jumped off of the louise bridge on a dare from a friend who immediately jumped in after me.All traffic on the bridge came to a halt as many people thought we were commiting suicide.Strange how one feels invincible as a child.-

What sort of height was it? Did the cops show up and haul off your sorry a@#es?-

I\'m guessing maybe 25 feet which looks like 50 feet to a 12 year old kid.Actually when we hit the water(thank God for water)we swam to shore which was a couple of hundred yards and high tailed it home through the bushes along the river bank.I still go over that bridge almost daily and always find myself glancing at the spot where we jumped.-

the guy who jumped with me passed away a few years ago.I went to his funeral even though I hadn\'t seen him in years.Later I had a few drinks to his memory and our day of glory.-

They put me on national TV when I was 10. Some guy in his fifties did a show in which he interviewed kids two at a time and he came to our school looking for participants with stories. He chose me and a girl in my class, Sally. On the show I was overshadowed by an impudent young kid who still managed to amuse people, but my unexpected appearance nearly caused my mate on the other side of the country to choke on his chop that night. The best story was from Sally who told how her mother found tickets to a strip club in her father\'s travel bags for a business trip. I still remember the mortified look on her mother\'s face in the audience.-

I was working in docklands when they first started developing it. Watching the news that night there was an item about how the new houses were meant for the locals but were being snapped up for profit by all and sundry. The reporter was on site, and stage left, I appeared with a dust sheet over my shoulder and walked right across the screen. -

I painted the science room black using only a test tube, some water, a pencil and two copper wires poked in the mains.-
