    Okay...I had to think hard, but I've got a few...

    In 7th grade, I won the state history fair with a documentary video about the rise and fall of railroads. I bash editted the entire thing with 2 VCRs and a voice recorder.

    George W. Bush (then Gov of Texas) wrote me a letter of recommendation for the US Air Force Academy....ended up not going (damn screws in my shoulder).

    And lastly...my grandmother was 4th (I think) cousins with the Queen of England. I'm not exactly sure of the lineages or whatever, but I do know it to be true. I'm also sure there are 1000's of other people that are 3-4 times removed from royalty, but I thought it was cool.

    well about 6 years ago I went skiing with a bunch of friends. The very first day we got there we started to drink, some one brought a big texas mickey. Well in an hour and a half the three of us polished off 3/4 of the bottle when we decide to head out for dinner. Well during the walk, we were walking along the edge of a 6' cliff (not high but wait). The village was just below so instead of taking the easy way around, we decide to hop the cliff or rock wall.

    To make a long story short (to late) when my drunken self jumped I landed wrong and didn't bend at the knees and shattered my heel in 5-6 pieces. Well did I tell you this was the first day of the ski trip and never mind that it was Dec and the season had just started. It took me one year to be able to walk again.

    My patrol that I use to ski patrol just shook their heads

    back in the 90's, my finger was on Dateline NBC when the anchors were doing pieces about where they grew up. Jane Pauley went to my high school and there was a film crew in my geometry class. They got my finger and my calculator in one of the scenes that made it on TV.

    Me too! If I know nobody is close enough to hear it and get PO'd at me, I'll rip ones that are loud enough to echo off nearby walls/cliffs. Great fun!

    Here are a few truisms about me:

    I can count to 10 in 1 language easily, 2 languages with some thought, and 3 languages if I feel motivated to use google translate

    I once met a cashier that reminded me of someone famous. I don't recall who it was, though

    I have seen dead people

    I can swim underwater for as long as I can hold my breath

    I am a morning person, but I haven't figured out in which time zone

    My poop stinks

    My wife often makes comments about my lack of friends and then thinks about it for a second and says never mind

    Kudos! I Luckily for me, they never caught me in a similar act. I think I would get deported with no questions asked if they did.

    I met Emmylou Harris once.

    Because of my dog.

    My dog also met China (the pro wrestler) when I wasn't around.

    So my dog has met more famous people than I have.

    I once was in the same shop in Killarney, Ireland as the actress who played Blossom on TV. She was being mobbed by other people in my group but I kept my distance. Went through the checkout right behind her parents.

    I saw John Kerry running through the terminal at BWI a handful of years ago.

    A landowner who was letting me do field work for my thesis on his ranch told me that he used to own a ranch in Hawaii that was featured on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous BITD. He sold all his property in other states and consolidated to Texas so he didn't have to travel so much to manage his land.

    Did you frame the ticket? I would have.

    I used to play t-ball and at a young age had my ear pierced. Just one. During a game that had been going on for a few innings the umpire happened to notice I had an earring and called time. I asked what for? He told me I had to remove my earring. My response was that all the girls got to wear them--one earring per ear, non dangly and a necklace tucked into the shirt--why was I any different? He said because I was a boy. I told him that was ludicrous and if I had to remove my earring all the girls had to remove all their jewelry. We had to pause the whole game and all the girls had to remove their jewelry and hand it over to their parents. Fighting sexist rules and idiocy even as a youngster.

    I taught over 300 kids how to ride mountain bikes.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    This is fun...tough to remember, but stories I still hear when I go to my home town:

    7th grade - showed up to school driving a car that didn't belong to anyone I knew. Lots of strange looks from teachers

    Once hit a guy so hard in football one shoe and his helmet came off. Joke was on me, he did a short stent in the pros, I didn't even play in college.

    Walked into a dominos pizza and shot the guy behind the counter. With a paint ball gun. I'm not proud of this one but my high school buddies still think it was the best prank ever.

    The first one (only one while I was there) in my college slosh-ball league to hit 3 home runs in a game (keg at second and home - not safe or moving to the next base until you drink a full beer at each)

    More recently:
    First in my family with a post-graduate degree

    Several published articles, patents, and conference talk credits

    Led 4 first human use cases of new medical devices in a 3 year span. Working on #4 now.

    Look how serious I've become. I think I need to start binge drinking again.
