Listening to the radio this morning, they was talking about dubious achievements - those funny/tragic party tricks of yours. You know - like to ability to stuff 50 marshmallows in your mouth or sing the national anthem whilst drinking a glass of water. One woman called in to the radio show to say that she had a 16 year old snowball in her freezer - that sort of thing.

That got me thinking and I wonder what dubious honours we have among us on the forum? Apart from the ability to embarrass myself at the most inopportune moments, I can recite the entire Spinal Tap script (almost) ad verbatim, can tell how many cylinders a motorbike has just by the sound of it and can tell you what year almost every 80s song was out.

You? Wink

Ha! I think we've proved the point now.

I once played a competetive game of 11 a side in a Saturday afternoon league etc against a team that included Jan Molby in midfield. Gazza will like that one, or at least get it.

I won a tin of spam in a raffle once. Does that count?

In 1980 there was a murder of a young girl in Gamesley, which is next to Glossop and my Native Hadfield. ITN were at " Party in the park" that weekend, and I appeared on news at ten, with my then illegal CB handle on the front "Labtec" and across the back which was perfectly visible on the TV " Wuzby is a banker " !! you need to be of a certain age to get this Smile

Whilst on secondary picket duty at Winwick Quay, (who remembers Eddie Shah?) Bumped into and interviewed for college radio Kevin Rowland who was there showing his support as an ex NGA member. Bearing in mind it was the middle of winter and early hours of the morning, I thought his "Come on Eileen" getup was a little out of place but hey, who am I?

I was at the same school as most of Pink Floyd and was taught by Roger Water's mother.

I was on the red carpet at the premiere of the Star Wars film Revenge of the Sith, dressed as a stormtrooper (still have my armour).

I was in an episode of Ground Force once, but nobody can tell it's me, as I was riding past on a motorbike, complete with full face helmet. Confused
