    now that depends if monkey is a euphemism or not (if not no)

    have you ever gotten a real dictionary out to find out how to spell a complicated word, to find out it was the wrong word (i just did was rather pissed off)

    Hehe - no, but then I used to wind up teachers at school with the age old question of "If you don't know how to spell a word, how are you going to be able to look it up in a dictionary". Ahh, good times!

    Have you ever been caught staring at someone, just for it to end well? A-la "Are you staring at me?" "Urrm... nooo...." "Oh, shame... cause if you were..."

    Nope - but I fell asleep in an exam a long while ago.

    Have you ever travelled to a foreign country for work, only for the meeting to be cancelled while you were on the plane?

    Yes! :D

    Have you ever played the Autotrader game of trying to find your dream car for sensible money, only to realise that it's a stupid idea?

    Yes, a PWM decided to burn itself up and catch the motherboard on fire (this was from a Compaq so no surprise :rolleyes:)

    have you ever set someone else on fire?

    Yes - a long while ago. Back before chips had thermal protection and cutoff switches. AMD Chips certainly do get very hot very fast when you don't properly secure the HSF.

    Have you ever microwaved anything you shouldn't, just to see what happens? (CDs, Forks, A lit Match, etc)

    Yes! I was playing with one of those "crazy psycho mental lighters that burns with a blue flame because I'm sooooo cool :eyebrow:" things, and accidentally set fire to my friends hair. His fault for pretending to sleep on the table next to me I guess.

    Have you ever fallen down more than 10 stairs?

    Yes. A twenty-seven flight of stairs, around fifteen times between the ages of seven and nine. I was a clumsy child.

    Every time I see the Childline advert with the text "X's parents say he fell down the stairs," I realise why my parents stopped taking me to hospital for a checkup after the second time in a week.

    Have you ever accidentally damaged a possession valued at more than £100?

    Yeah - I dropped my trumpet. (a £3500 Bach Stradivarius, with all the trimmings: Reverse Lead Pipe, Heavyweight inbuilt mouthpiece, etc etc etc).

    Dented Bell - £80 to repair.
    Dented Second Valve pipe - £50 to repair.
    Jammed first valve - £25 to repair.
    Having to play on an old Yamaha T150S at a recital you had been rehearsing for for MONTHS - Priceless.


    Have you ever staggered home drunk and tried to get into the wrong house?

    Yes, I've tried to open the door to the flat next door only to find someone look at me very unimpressed wielding a frying pan.

    Have you ever invoked the 5 second rule with something sticky?

    Yes - On christmas morning no less. Delayed christmas lunch by an hour and a half.


    Have you ever looked down a column of "Last post by:", seen your name on pretty much all of them, and then realised "Ohh... THAT's why I've got so behind with work!"
