Are You Crazy?

I suppose this is a bit like the 'Meet the members' thread... 

But have you done something crazy? is there something crazy you wish you did, or you might do one day?


I've always been a bit cautious... but I have done some crazy stuff so far... got plenty of time to do more though!


Amongst other things I have:


- Touched a real human brain
- Run around at my high school yelling film quotes
- Danced on the streets of Dublin for booze money

Re: Are You Crazy?

I am the most BORING person you're ever likely to meet - ha ha! Sherlock would zone out within a couple of seconds of meeting me.
I am also a big fat coward!! My hubby was once in stitches because I was cautiously walking, like an old lady, down a small incline on holiday once. I'm scared of fairground rides - everything!
That said, I can be very silly, childish, and giggly with the right crowd, So I can be crazy in that sense. Just not daring-crazy!

Re: Are You Crazy?

I'm very boring too. But when I was younger, I was really reckless. Sometimes I should think twice before speaking haha
- Once I told to a friend quite loudly "Look, Mr X has a really nice bum". The teacher in question was just behind me. I think I never felt more ashamed in my life.
- I visited the catacombs of Paris a couple of years ago (in one of the forbidden entrance). It was so funny! However you have to be escorted by someone who knows very well the underground, before if you get lost, nobody will come fetch you (it's really big, no network, there's so many entrances!!!)
- When I was 3, I hit my grandfather with a toy when he was asleep. Actually, it seems he confiscated me something. Dunno what. I was such a brat.
- When I was 5, I did a bike race with someone I just met in my neighborhood. We were riding so fast in town, it was crazy. Eventually I bit the dust and I broke 2 calf teeth (incisive). I had a teethless smile for more than a year!

Well that's all. Since I grew up, I became tedious. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Are You Crazy?

I once jumped with parachute, does it count?

Also I once told my parents that I would sleep at my friend's while I deliberately went alone to the streets of Prague having nowhere to sleep, meeting other kids who had nowhere to sleep as well, singing, dancing and playing guitar with them in the park and ending up in some stranger's flat with some of them, sharing cigarettes and sleeping on the floor... Sometimes I wonder how I survived to adulthood at all.

Re: Are You Crazy?

I did plenty of crazy things. The craziest: when I drank 6,25 litres of water in a competition (it took about 1,5 hours and you weren't allowed to go to the toilet or throw up during the competition, otherwise you was out). I was third and the best of girls (strangely I'm still kind of proud of it). It was one of the weirdest things ever. When I exceeded 4 litres, my head started to hurt horribly. The pain ended immediately after I threw up later. Few years later it really shook me up when I found out that it was extremely dangerous and I could have died. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/16614865/ns/us_news-life/t/woman-dies-after-water-drinking-contest/#.UyjBfYWF-Ck

Re: Are You Crazy?

Water intoxication can be extremely dangerous! Good thing you didn't get any worse side effects, Pav! I've seen this on a show about crazy ways to die... 


Also when I was in Dublin (on a school trip) The friends I had back then and I were out having fun every night. One night we were almost back at our hotel and met 3 guys. we pretended to be more drunk than we were and told them we were lost and had a bit of a misunderstanding and had drunken up our bus money. The kind boys gave us some cash. We walked on a bit and when we were sure they were out of eye sight we went back to the hotel. As we went inside a group of girls started laughing. 

I still feel a bit bad about that...

Re: Are You Crazy?

Oh, and once in German class while waiting for the teacher to arrive my friends and I took pictures of us posing with a knife for cutting a cake... 

Mine, uh, well... that was scary (Try to picture a weird punk chick wih a truly crazy stare and a huge knife) 


Oh, and as a farewell to our German teacher in advanced German we took a group picture, posing as dead people who died in different ways. I was posing with a huge needle against my arm. 

Our teacher had once filled an entire blackboard with words and ways to die in German.

Re: Are You Crazy?

On the brighter note, once, when I was changing my clothes in IKEA (I was helping Mum promote cosmetics dressed as angel), Mum told me that I could see through glass but people outside couldn't see me. Therefore I decided to wear only my underwear and have fun while waving at people who were passing by. At least I thought they couldn't see me. However, when I was outside I noticed that it was just ordinary glass and I was waving at strangers practically nakedhttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Are You Crazy?

I get slightly jealous when I read this - I've done nothing really!

Only stupid thing I did was last year when I but off more than I could chew. On the Saturday I went from home (Isle of Wight) to London, four hours travelling by boat and car, had a day sightseeing round London, then went to a concert at Wembley, then drove all the way back to Southampton at midnight, kipped in a hotel for five hours, got up the next morning, got a train to Portsmouth, then ran the Great South Run (10 miles) in 1.42.44.

To say I was tired was an understatement ;-)

Re: Are You Crazy?

I have touched pretty much every organ in the human body at some point (having my finger in someones beating heart was quite cool) but since that's what I do for living it probably doesn't count as crazy.

I have 12 pet snakes and a couple of lizards, I don't think it's crazy but the landlord does.

So far I have moved house 15 times and I'm due to move again soon.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit. I had this bright idea to check if I had 'grown out' of it and landed myself in AE to be treated by my collegues (I told them that I had some by mistake to awoid the schame of my stupidity ).

That's about it. I'm quite a boring person.

Re: Are You Crazy?

I'd say so! Took me until recently to realise how 'eccentric' I was but yeah, deifnitely. Since I was a tiny kid I've collected dead animals. Now I'm 23, I have cabinets and boxes and jars full of bones, cases of dried butterflies and shed snake skins, etc. I learned taxidermy at 15 so I've got a few amateurishly stuffed birds lying around too. I've also always loved drawing hideous monsters which I suppose is quite unusual for a tiny girl, and been more or less mute all my life (though no one can tell on the internet, typing isn't talking!).

Re: Are You Crazy?

Signing up as a delegation host for Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest is starting to sound like the craziest thing I have, and probably will ever do... 

I've done some phobia self training... which means I've picked up a big spider (that actually bit me... ), when in Berlin I got onto the roof of the tallest building there and forced myself to look down... for my germaphobia I touched that brain I mentioned in my first post. It was at the Bodies exhibition. My true test of my germaphobia was capping fresh blood samples taken from school kids without gloves and no way of washing my hands in sight... 
Today I'm not too afraid of heights, I'm an 'intermittent germaphobe' (When I'm stressed), but my arachnophobia has gotten really bad... 

As a little girl I collected bird skulls. 

I have always been a sweet and the less violent girl in the world (Even when I was a crazy punk chick) but once when I saw a kid being bullied and another time when my then good friend was being hazzled by some boys I used my style. I was glaring at them clenching my fist and luckily they decided to leave. (To think of what could have happened though!)

I was a bit aprehensive to start with (my partner is the one who is a born reptile fanatic) but I have grown really fond of them and our mini zoo continues to grow. lol My only problem is that I keep feeling sorry for the frozen mice that they eat.

We keep to pet tarantulas as well and I'm not keen on those at all. I tolerate them in their boxes but that's about it.

Agreed.  Aw, but don't worry… feel pretty 'tame' myself.     If your line of work or interests (or 'dares') don't always lead to 'crazy'/out there occurrences, it's often just from chance happening, then.  Like the time I decided to take my first road trip by myself, visit someone several states over.  Halfway there, huge thunderstorms plagued the area for a couple hours… picture driving a major highway, often several semis nearby at a time, and raining so hard you can barely see.    And then stopping in town once after it let up, and locking your keys in car!  And then getting horribly lost, twice!  (well, I did say I had wanted an adventure)   Ha… although do you count it crazy getting your mom to join you on a five hour drive just to see the 're-play' of Frankenstein in the nearest city carrying it?

Re: Are You Crazy?

I just remembered a few more things...


In highschool/ college I was a punk chick with a really strange style... but one day I showed up with a bow in my hair and dressed in pink and pretended to be a chav (is that what you call it?) for an entire day. Just because I was bored... 


Once my friends I decided to stand and stare at the sky and point until a few people had gathered and then walked away; leaving them wondering what the heck was there. 

I have a few times been 'accused' of being a transsexual. And a few times I've just turned around, flicked my hair out and batted my eyelashes. and said something like "Well of course darling!".
