    Lame Claims to Fame and Shame ?

    This is the thread to share your claims to Fame and shame no matter how lame i want to hear them.

    I'll start the ball rolling..

    When i was a kid i used to squash flies with a fly squatter with my lil bro, we collected a whole jar of dead blow flies in about 4 months in summer one year, we concidered that an impressive feat, we used to use dead birds, possums, rats what ever we could find to attract the flies and sit next to them all day squatting away...

    I can swim an olympic swimming pool under water turn around and make it to the 60m mark.

    I collect belly button lint, once again in a jar, and have one of the biggest collections in Oz, im looking to be a world record holder one day...

    I used to eat insects, butterflies and moths at primary school for bets or just to get attention, mostly the latter..

    Ive taken over 60 species of Sydney Harbour fish on lure and fly, and at least 15 of those are fish not considered fishable for on lure or fly...

    Your turn guys, im sure you guys have tonnes of claims to fame and shame, i hear them on here every day, nows your chance to come clean, cheers

    This is YOUR MOMENT TO SHINE, YOUR MOMENT to tell MTBR of your greatest achievement, and greatest claim to fame, dont let it slip trendsetters...........

    I can swim two lengths of a 25m pool underwater. Never tried in a 50m pool.

    I have eaten multiple live guppies for small change and attention.

    I hiked 27 miles in a day.

    I'm kind of a big deal. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

    I seem to be remembered more for the heavy breathing in my climbing videos than the actual climbs (especially by male viewers! ). It has caused some petty bytching from faceless internet tough guys who claim to be cyclists

    I don't care though. I love raw footage and always will. There are two simple solutions available for those who don't like it. Hit the stop button, or mute the audio. They can even play one of their favorite songs while the video is playing, which is a better choice than me putting music over it that I like and other people don't like.

    I have a T-shirt declaring me the world's fastest fat man. Running, not riding. Age has taken a toll on that claim though.

    I am also known locally as the world's slowest mechanic. It's a good thing I got out of that line of work.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    I dunno. I guess my only claim to fame is whatever my "rep" is at.....?!

    <~~~

    Edit: I got it now. A few years back one of my fish won "best in show" at the Canadian Association of Aquarium Clubs (convention) "fish show." It wasn't so much that we won (we won other local club's shows a few times) but it was the most entries in a "canadian" show ever (329 total entries).

    I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should probably find yourself a safe house or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.

    I won the party at the race last week. Pretty much all I got.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    For some reason, one summer when I was a kid, pogo sticks were a flash fad in my neighborhood. I earned and held the record for longest continuous "pogo-ing"(?) for the entire summer. Ahhh...those were the glory days. : D

    Wow, I feel like a mere mortal among the gods after reading this thread. I'll be throwing down serious rep points once my salad shooter recharges.

    I can recite all 50 U.S. states in alphabetical order in just 30 seconds. Something I learned in the 4th grade and never forgot.

    I partied with man that made Jerry Garcia's guitars. And I did the cabbage patch on the stage that the grateful dead had had just left. I smoked pot with Peter Tosh. I'm an excellent bowler and I can drink a lot of beer.
