    I've never...

    I didn't think this thru too much, but I realized I've never had a Red Bull and thought...

    Bungee jumping, prostitutes. The odds of death are likely to be roughly the same, one is just faster.

    I have a neighbour who's about sixty-five and has never eaten takeaway food. Pizza, Chinese, fish and chips, never had any of it.

    I've never eaten at Taco Bell, despite plenty of opportunities.
    I figure its a streak I can continue forever without much risk.
    Don't let it get you down, but there's a good chance you were an accident.

    Never went off a diving board.
    Never did the bungee jump, parachuted or scuba dive.

    You've never went off a diving board? Are you afraid of them or has the opportunity just never presented itself? I'm on board [in the same boat] with the latter three you mentioned.

    I've never flown first class. Now, at nearly age 55, it remains a goal every time I book a flight.

    I got spooked as a youngster when swimming and my fear of water was a long time fixing. I enjoy a pool, beach or swimming and the vacation element of being by the water and have for many years but as a kid, I had to enjoy it more on my limited terms. I can swim and dive in off the deck or side of a pool but for some reason, have a bit of nerves about a dive from a board.
    I'm reasonably sure I could work up to it but it's just never seemed like a dream to overcome it. If I had to rescue a $3500 bike from the deep end (and could keep it) I think we might cure my fear.

    At a pool party as a 2nd grader, it was a round above ground pool we could stand in. The dad there was tossing kids around and just having fun with everyone and I was laughing as he did so. Then I guess it was my turn and he didn't know I was not a swimmer or acquainted with "going under" nor was I able to make my case in time -
    lol.
    Into the big blue yonder gasping for air and seeing bubbles, hell it seems like yesterday !!

    Wait, you're right. Come to think of it, as a kid there was some kind of incident with a thermometer.

    I've never been to the Northwest US or the Northeast US...only SE and SW. Really, really want to venture to the Northeast.

    Damn, good question. I've played with those fidget spinners via my son, so that's out.

    I've never played D & D or other RPG's.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    Have owned cars for over 30 years, but never one made in the 21st century.

    Come to think of it, I've never owned a 21st century bicycle, either.

    Lots of stuff.

    I have never been to France, Spain, or Germany. Need to to do that!
    I have never purchased a bike that was not second-hand or a year end closeout and/or had higher than SLX (LX back in the day) components.
    I have never scuba-dived, sky-dived, or bungee jumped. Doesn't seem interesting so I won't pay for it.

    And then there is the kinky stuff.
    I have never been to a "massage parlor." No interest in that.
    I have never participated in intercourse of the "muddy" variety because that's gross.
    And no threesome's. Seems complicated and would require way to much focus/multi-tasking.
    I once thought about getting my wife a whip to try some BDSM, but I worry she might get carried away and not stop smacking me.
    Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.

    Nope. I guess you really don't have to be old to have one, but I don't have any symptoms, so I'd rather not get it checked out. Typical American male, I'm not on the ground bleeding and unable to walk so everything is probably OK.

    I'm guessing we would need an RPG launcher to be able to fire one.

    Gosh, dog it. You knew what I meant! Just what are we missing out on?

    I had never seen a live bird tumble in the wind like a total dweeb until just now. Pretty impressive. He/she regained posture and looked around like "ofucc e'rybody jus' seen it."

    You never give your wife the weapon. Nothing good can come of it.

    I've never bought my wife a weapon.
    I tried to teach her how to use my little .380 but it scared the crap out of her.

    Which means you need four paper bags. One to cover each of their ugly faces and one to cover your own in case one of theirs falls off.

    I'm thinking the dogs lay on or near the feet. My feet are usually cold when I go to bed. The sleep experts say to wear socks if you have to, at least for a bit .

    If I ever have 3 dogs on the bed, they best be eating dog food that agrees with them. Lets just say a gassy dog makes itself known.

    Three gassy dogs and you may wake up Dead !

    Lol, so true. My buddy Bandit that passed away at 15.5 years. Who was half Doberman half Border Collie Was great gas wise [that is he never had a problem] up until his last year or so. He always slept in his own bed beside my bed. Trust me in his last year of life I knew the was there.

    And there are certain breeds that are stinky and gassier than others. I've noticed Labradors, Rottweilers and Pit Bulls are definitely over stinky.

    My feet were never, ever cold until a few years back, then they started getting really cold on three dog nights. For me, the trick is to keep them warm with the right socks and then pop them off right when going to bed. If they are already cold when I go to bed, they'll stay cold. But sometimes I still have to wear socks as my wife keeps our house freezing in the winter, then I'll usually wake up with over-heated feet and have to take them off in the middle of the night.

    And I've never been to Spain.

    Fixed that for you. You should post that tip in the 55 and older forum.

    Thats funny but sounds universally true. We keep our house fresh in winter too. That dry furnace air is tiring and we sleep better. 65 or cooler is an optimal bedroom temp for good sleep. We also have a heated mattress cover with dual controls so we can improvise.

    Well crap. If that secret gets out and all the old farts start getting good sleep, nobody will have an excuse to be grumpy anymore.

    But I'm only 53 so I'm not allowed in there.

    But it might be helpful in the 50+ forum.

    I realized my mistake right after I posted that. But rather than going through the hassle of fixing it I left it. Figuring one of your age wouldn't notice it anyway. By the way, you're pretty astute for such an old dude. More so than me when I was your age.

    I've never done none of those neither. Never. I have seen Seinfeld a few times, though; and played Wii
