What experiences common to your class & culture have you gotten thru life without?

I have never --

owned a TV set
had my pocket picked
attended a professional sporting event
attended an opera
attended a ballet
been in the armed services
been married
been in debt
fallen in love
sued or been sued

I've never experienced any of those common things either, Joe F...except for falling in love! I did that more than a few times. It's the worst peril there is in life, in my opinion, other than being on the other end of George Bush's foreign policies. ;-)

How about these...

I have never...

owned a cell phone
owned an ipod
been in a fist fight
had sex with Madonna (snort!)

Hey! I've never been arrested either. No tatoos, no piercings, no earrings. Gosh. I just haven't lived, eh?

I've also never been to a Rolling Stones concert. Could've gone to Woodstock, I wasn't that far away from there at the time...but I stayed home.

I've never had sex in the back seat of a car nor have I skipped the light fantastic on the sidewalks of New York.

I've never had the moon hit my eye like a big-a pizza pie.

Yeah, I was kind of astounded by the "never fallen in love" bit too...

But there was a very nice woman whom I was in love with and then friends with for many years...and she always claimed that she had never fallen in love, despite being in romantic relationships. I just couldn't believe it. She'd fallen in "like", but not in love, according to her. She was quite a warm and affectionate person too, but she just did not seem to lose her head that way when it came to romance. That's rare. She was rare. I still miss her bigtime.

Here are a few more...

I've never had a cordless phone
Never had a speaker phone
Never had call waiting
Never had call display (but am about to get it)

I've never worn a ring

I've almost never used aftershave lotion, despite shaving since around age 19 (but I think I did use it maybe just once or twice...can't quite remember)

I've never used Q-tips...except when working on model aircraft, of course...they're handy for that.

I've never had any progeny, official or otherwise. Trust me. I haven't.

I've never believed that Coke is the Real Thing. Or that Pepsi tastes better. (It doesn't. It's way too sweet.)

I've never had any of my wisdom teeth extracted.

Boy, this is fun.... ;-)

I have been arrested, have had cell phones and iPods, have fallen in love, and while never having escaped from a sunken sub, I have escaped from an empty SCUBA rig at forty feet below the rolling Pacific. I've had wisdom teeth, adenoids and attitudes extracted, have slept on the street and in mansions. I don't recall painting my toenails, but I have worn a dress once, for a very short time. I've had progeny, blasphemy and adultery; I have flown the air, sailed deep blue water, dived the shallows and slept on the earth and dug under it. I have been hit by a cop and kissed by a maiden, and have been stony broke and well-to-do. I have driven over 100 mph.

I didn't make Woodstock, but I made the Newport Folk festival just before that.

So I am hard put to know what I have missed, except for war. I have never fired a gun in anger, taken a human life, committed rape or any other major felonies. I have never fired a heavy weapon or sunk a ship. I have not rounded the Horn or traveled physically at Mach 1. I have not been aloft in a balloon, hang glider, or dirigible.

I have not played Madison Square Garden or a thousand other great places, but I did sing in the Central Park open auditorium one night. And although I have always been a little bit wild, I have never gone mad. Not sriously, I mean...

I guess I haven't missed much -- just enough to keep me curious.

I do own a TV, but only 1
" "   " " cell phone
I have fallen in love more than a few times, actually 3
been in debt
been to Woodstock
been in more than a few fist fights, a couple gang wars & a few barroom brawls
had a couple tattoos
Made it to some of the early Newport festivals
hitch-hiked across the US once, drove across 6 times
had sex in the middle of a snow storm in the middle of Government Center
Slept in the same room as Amos, but I didn't peep, I did peep at Big Mick though, he wasn't big
been pawed on the arm by a bear
broken a heel, an ankle, a wrist, a leg & a nose, a few times
sailed across the Pacific
had been considered for a contracted hit by crupt union officals
was under FBI protection
crossed paths with a mess of black cats
stowed away of a ship full of candy bound for South Africa, got chased off before we could finish eating it all & before it left the dock
Snuck into Canada barefoot through the woods, then promtly got thrown out
ate squirrel & rabbit, not alive though, killed them first
been rescued at sea, well, towed in, against our wills
sailed as part of an all naked crew with 3 other   guys ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,& 19 women
seen the Northern Lights, seen the green flash of the sun sinking in the water's horizon, seen a moonbow over a canyon on Maui, seen a 3 day Kona storm blow out to sea, bounce off an island & come right back again
rode a cement bucket from a crane down 7 stories, rode a conveyor belt back up 3 stories
climbed to the top of a tall ship's mast but didn't walk out on the yard
dove with tanks below 76', free dove over 40'
woke up to the sounds of porpoise, gone to sleep to the sounds of gun fire
hiked inside a volcano & under a waterfall but didn't walk 20 miles of barbed wire & didn't use a cobra snake for a neck-tie but was close enough to be biten by a conga eel
had my skin turn completely yellow


Amos, we should swap stories,,,,,,,,,,,,,but not spit
there's still a few things I haven't tried & a couple things I have but wished I hadn't but I have lived & I think I went mad once

The "things everybody did" that I guess I missed out on can be summarized quickly - - -

CHILDHOOD: I went to work in the family sheetmetal business at age 12.

THE 60s: In college when it started, then straight to the Army in Yuma Arizona - where nothing happened. From there to Milwaukee WI, where if anything happened nobody noticed. By the time I left Milwaukee in '68 it was pretty much all over with before someone told me some things about it and made me feel all sorry.

(I read a couple of Playboys and caught up on the theory, I guess.)

I remember crying once cause I'd lost $10.00
Years later-I lost $200.00 and didn't drop a tear over it--cause I'd just lost my husband.
Everything is relative.

I've had my pocket picked-Creep got $83.00
Never been to a sporting event or a parade.
Went to Woodstock, Metropolitan Opera House, Carnegie Hall.

Met Humphrey Bogart
Shook hands with Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, Paul Newman & Johnny "Call for Philip Morris" HE was creepy--looked like he been dipped in wax.

Made my wedding gown.
Set off a fire alarm- (6 yrs. old)
Set our livingroom on fire-(4 yrs. Old)
Still have wisdom teeth.
Had a boat named after me.
Rode a horse on Catalina Island.

Had my heart broken twice-(That was enough!)

I have never:-

been arrested

made love in the back seat of a car - the front yes, but never the back. I don't recommend the front. Especially if it's a manual (stick shift)

Climbed a snow topped mountain

Made a snow angel

been waterskiing or windsurfing

been divorced

seen a live badger

driven an open topped car, only ever been the passenger.

The list of things I haven't done is endless... the list of things I wish I'd never done is even longer!

Joe asked about STANDARD experiences. There's lots of things I've never done: I've never said boo to a goose, nor watched the sun go down on Galway Bay, nor kept my chewing gum on the bedpost overnight. Peeping through the bathroom door, I never saw my sister in the raw. I never lived in a yellow submarine, nor a windmill in old Amsterdam, nor was I ever left to die like a fox on the run. But few of those would be considered standard.

OK, Standards. I never saw Duke of Gloucester before Barry. I was never hauled by a Britannia, a Clan, a 2MT or a 9F, and I never saw a Crosti boilered one.

I have never "thrown a fuck." Now don't get me wrong. I have actively engaged in sexual intercourse (fucking) for many years but I have never thrown a fuck.

The first time I heard someone say that he "threw her a fuck" I was immediately drawn to the concept. Another way to enjoy the pleasures of sex and this one sounded like a real kicker to me. I immediately began to think how to best go about it. No matter how hard I tried, I didn't seem to be able to figure this one out. Oh, I tried mind you but every attempt seemed to me like some silly form of mastubation and I feared becoming known far and wide as a total jackoff, much like we all now consider Gargoyle to be.

So I gave it up. I hated to admit defeat but there was no option. I just couldn't throw a fuck and conceded I didn't give a fuck...... which was something I could do.

My research shows conclusively that 92.7% of everyone in North American and 87.3% of everyone in the UK and Europe has had sex with Little Hawk.

The research also clearly demonstrates that 7.3% of everyone in North America and 12.7% of everyone in the UK and Europe are in their right minds.

Research in other parts of the world is continuing.

Aw, c'mon, Spaw. You're already known far and wide as a total jackoff, right? ;-)

But seriously, man...I too was a bit puzzled the first time I heard the expression "throw a fuck". I heard it from Jim. Jim was a real classic blue collar semi-reformed hellraiser from Newmarket, Ontario. He was the kind of guy who would fit in great in Rapaire's Idaho Legion...he had all the macho qualifications. Mind you, Jim was not stupid, not at all, but he was relentlessly rough hewn, pretty much "uneducated" in the academic sense, very streetwise in both inclination and manner.

We were working together at the gas station on Highway 11. Jim found me intriguing, because I'm totally opposite to him in just about every way. I found him intriguing for the same reason. I'm a thinker who likes to read esoteric literature. Jim's a man of action who likes to fix old cars, drink, and party.

At any rate, Jim had a lot of salty expressions and most of them had something to do with sex.

He would observe female customers like a pirate assessing the value of a harborfront cargo, and he would make various deadpan wisecracks out of their hearing...

"I'd f*ck her on a dime..." was one of his favorites. It meant "at a moment's notice"..."anywhere, any time, any acceptable method".

"She's a spot counter." he observed one day, as a well-dressed woman marched busily back to her car.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"She's the type," he said, with the air of a man who knows whereof he speaks, "who, yer throwin' her a f*ck and she's lookin' at the ceiling and counting the spots! She's goin' one..........two..............three....(very bored tone of voice)"

I burst out laughing. "Oh, you mean she's frigid, do you? How can you tell?"

I had no idea Little Hawk had been so promiscuous and wanton in his ways. Even KENDALL! My god. I am going to have to rethink some things here. I mean, really. This changes the fundamentals. What kind of a place is this, anyway?

I never bedded no spot counters, as far as I know. Seems to me they were much more involved than that.

LH does NOT make things up...at least that is what he keeps telling himself. If he thought for a minute that his constellation of vibrant, vivid characters was fiction, he'd probably have to shoot himself in disgust. As far as he is concerned, Shane, Chongo, Chongo's sister Chinga, and William Shatner are quite real. So can readily say "I am not making this up", because no inkling of actually making stuff up can be allowed into his forebrain.

I was actually moved to take notes throughout the thread. Of all the experiences listed that are really common, if not definitely " standard", I have missed out on:
Having my pocket picked
Opera
Ballet
Lawsuit
Owning a Cellphone (my wife has one)
Piercing or tattoo
being arrested
having progeny
water skiing
divorce
adultry.

I have painted my toenails (once for Halloween)
I have been aloft in a balloon
I have seen my sister in the raw. (I have glimmers of very
    early memory, and there were moments when I was a little perv of
    9 or 10, she was 15 or 16, and we had to bath from a washpan in
    the corner of the living room that was out of sight from the
    kitchen. We were both very near-sighted. If I stuck my head   
    around the door with my eyes narrowed down, when she had her
    glasses off, she though my eyes were closed, and she only got a
    little ticked off for being teased.)

When I was 30 years old, it occured to me that I had never owned a bicycle or flown a kite. I made a point of doing both just after that.

You made up Chinga, Amos, I didn't. You invented Chinga one day in a puerile attempt to insult Chongo. You are a rapscallion, a nullifidian, a maundering fitch, and a shuffling, bat-faced, dunderheaded kvetchmacher.

Furthermore, William Shatner IS real...and larger than life. ;-) Everybody knows that.

You have lost your grip on reality, my good sir, and it only awaits now for your near relatives or some other thoughtful and responsible people to have you safely confined in the upstairs room of a mouldering country mansion, chained behind a heavy locked door like some nameless abomination in an H.P.

My great-uncle was a cemetery sexton; he lived on the premises and decorated for Christmas with a string of empty wine bottles. Anyway, he found conclusive evidence that young ladies and gentlemen were using "his" cemetery for, ah, purposes more related to life than to death. One night he hid himself behind a large gravestone, and around midnight a young woman and her beau came a sat down with their backs against the stone.

Giggling, they exchanged a few coy smooches, and then he said, "But aren't you afraid of ghosts?"

At which point my great-uncle appeared from behind the gravestone and shouted, "I'll ghost you, you son-of-a-bitch!"

It is said that the couple was still running when they hit the Mississippi River.

I've never driven anything that could remotely be described as a "sports car". I've also never driven a motorcycle on a roadway, though I've driven off-road dirt-bikes numerous times.

I've never had my pocket picked, but I have been robbed at gunpoint. If I have a choice, I'll take the pick-pocket next time.

Woodstock was too damned far away from Florida, but I did make it to the Atlanta Pop Festival (which by some estimations had more attendees than Woodstock) the following year.

I've never been arrested, though I "passed" a couple of roadside sobriety tests by the skin of my teeth. I'm sure that given the same circumstances with today's lower impairment tolerances, I would have been carted off.

I've lived in Florida my entire life, but I've never seen a rocket launch or attempted surfing or SCUBA diving.

Not to put too fine a point on it,ships have three masts. They are square rigged except for the spanker, the rearmost sail which is rigged for and aft.

A brig has two masts, square rigged.
A Briganteen has two masts, the fore mast is square rigged and the main mast is fore and aft. It's also called an "Hermaphrodite brig."

So the water-borne vessel we made as kids was a ship because it had three masts.

It wasn't very big and it sank very shortly after launch, but it had three masts with square sheets except for the mizzenmast, which had a couple old pillow cases. It also had a jib, but that doesn't count because we'd confused "jib" and "head". She was christened "USSHMS Thundermug" and sank on her maiden voyage.

Raparie, A sheet is a rope, not a sail.

One rule of thumb is, A ship can carry a boat, but a boat can not carry a ship.
In the days of sail, a ship was "ship rigged" that is, three masts, square rigged. If rigged any other way, it is not a ship. It would be a Barque, schooner, brig or variations on those.

The name "schooner" comes from old Scottish word to schoon. A verb referring to moving fast over the water. And, of course, the schooner could sail circles around ships and sail much closer to the wind.
Donald McKay, a Scot, designed some of the fastest schooners ever built.The Cutty Sark was one of his most famous.

Taking Bill D to task here: (Never) "eaten a Persimmon..." They grow wild alongside Virginia roads, you know, Bill. I'm sure the same is true of Maryland. Now, granted, these are not the 3/4 pound honkers they produce in California but they are persimmons, for a' that.

As to Tolkien with all those folks from Middle Earth, read The Hobbits first; it is probably the best. The series are great fun, though. I resisted a co-worker's admonitions for months until finally he bought The Hobbits and gave it to me. Subsequently I of course went out and bought everything Tolkien wrote.

You are limiting yourself, Bill. (Want me to send you The Hobbit?)

There is an excellent party game called "Deprived"—anyone played it?

You start by passing out a number of tokens to every participant. They could be anything—poker chips, playing cards, whatever. Then you take turns naming one thing you have never done. (You must be honest.) Then everyone who HAS done that thing has to give you a token. If you run out of tokens, you're out of the game. Keep going until one person has all the tokens (or you get bored).

Only one topic should be forbidden, and that is, experiences (non-experiences?) that follow common gender-stereotypes. For instance, it would be unfair for a man to say "I have never shaved my legs" or for a woman to say "I have never shaved my face." If that were allowed, the result would be very predictable and BORING.

On the other hand, it would be OK for a woman to say "I have never shaved my legs" or for a man to say "I have never shaved my face"—as long as those statements were true, of course.
