What Is The Craziest Thing You Have Done?

Fri Jul 16, 2004 2:52 am

Hi guys,

Kinda bored and sat around doing nada so I thought I'd pass this around!  Smile

As per the topic, what is the craziest thing you have ever done? It can be anything!

For me it had to be the time I flew LHR-LAX with fellow forum user Chris78cpr for a total stay of approx. 31 hours in the USA! In my eyes this was completely barking mad!  Laugh out loud

My workmates, family and friends call me crazy for doing this! They also laugh when I said I went for the thrill of flying and for the spotting/photography purposes!

I look forward to all of your responses!

Best Regards,

Justin  Big thumbs up

I decided one time, since everyone else in town was on holiday, I took the bus to Portland. I spent about 14 hours there then flew back home (about an hour) on an old QX Metro III.

Just about two weeks ago, I decided to visit YVR for the weekend. It was crazy because I decided in about 15 minutes and I also decided to take the bus across the border and use public transport while I was there. After I got there I decided what fun things to do.

Good times.

Jesus... Alot of things that I shouldn't mention here. One 'A.net style' thing that I've done though that is very tame is that I drove to Coventry with my brother at 2am. Why did we go... Well, neither of us had been to Coventry before! Both of us had had a little to drink so I guess it was understandable..... sorta... and illegal I guess.

Oh well. I'll leave the more radical ones, most of them involve breaking/stealing/setting fire to things.

Funny you should mention that!!!

After about 8 hours of drinking me and a mate jumped in his car at 4 a.m. and went to one of those 24 hour garages for some food!  Big thumbs up

Both had "a little" to drink too!  Wink/being sarcastic

Its only afterwards that it dawns on you that if you got caught.. We would of both been fcuked!  Wow!

Keep 'em coming guys,

Set fire to many things, broken many things, made a few people cry just because, been kicked out of churches, camps, buildings, and done some pretty cruel stuff to people that I really really regret.

I'm over most of that stuff though.

In an aviation sense, I guess it'd be flying 7 legs in one day...west coast and back

MCO-ATL-PDX-CVG-ATL-MEM-ATL-MCO...the MEM legs were on my dad's 88.

Worldly sense, probably going around 150 MPH down I-95 at night, right by a (didn't know this at the time, but he had to be) sleeping Florida Highway Patrol cruiser...

goin 120mph with a high school sutdent driving a 2001 mustang GT (V8) on city sterrets (a 2 lane non divided highway with traffic and traffic lights) while racing other students from wendies back to HS. then off to piss off and old guy who threatened to kill us with a power drill.

PS this was also the one time that i think we broke one of those "YOUR SPEED IS" signs because it just displayed "00" and did not move

then an after party (boy was that a fun night)

this was because your team won our leagues and the season was over

Myself and a friend went to a "Rocky Horror" night with our girlfriends and myself and my male friend dressed up as "sweet transvestites". Shaved heads, leather basks (mine was red by the way), stockings etc..........

Got out of the taxi on a cold October evening and we made our way to the entrance, two door-men couldn't stand up for laughing and when we went into the building we were met by 300+ people cheering and clapping and we didnt understand why everyone was laughing at us.

Until we went to buy the drinks at the bar we kindly told it was a Halloween night.

Our girlfriends set us both up in revenge for me playing a prank on him on his stag night when I was the best man.

Cheers, Steve.


P.s At this point I want to point out I do not dress as a woman at weekends (well not anymore).

Oh yeah, speaking of driving in a stupid manner, a friend and I pushed the petal to the metal for about 30 minutes without letting off it. The speedometer was stuck on the fastest speed, so who knows how fast we were going. It was at night. We probably used about half the tank of gas doing that...

Unless they can prove you were at the meet. I wasn't, I'm a bit brassed off, still there is always another day.

I have been offered trade day tickets at Farnborough. Whats more important? Well - Farnborough of course. I feel a bad knee coming on and will deal with the consequences later.

Stuff em!!

BMAbound, I drove 1400 miles from Baton Rouge, LA to Phoenix, AZ in 20 hours with my mom. Your speed wasn't necessarily dangerous, but lack of sleep man that had to suck.

Craziest thing I did, was probably moon about 20 people having a block party in their front yard. I know I'm lame. I'm sure I'll get more exciting after I turn 21.

Probably 2 things come to mind:
1) Driving severely drunk home after a party a few miles from where I lived then, when graduated University/College (In New Jersey, June 1977). While I was very lucky not to kill myself or others, I did pay for my terrible judgment. I got very sick, pukeing in front of a fan, and ended up with a 2 day hangover. I couldn't work for 2 days.
2) Doing a 43 meter/143 ft. bungee jump dangling by my ankles in Queenstown, New Zealand in June 1994 on vacation. This was done under the supervision of a professional service. Took the rest of the day to recover. The pictures and tape still bring laughs to all, while I was in sheer terror when I did it.

Car wise: me and a mate (him driving, me drunk) did 160mph on the M4 motorway in the UK (speed limit: 70mph).

Aviation wise: Went out and got totally leathered (inc. going to strip joint in Tijuana) and went to bed at about 4am, only to have to get up at 6am to fly back to the UK from San Diego.

  • I posted a response after reading Cancidas offering. What a fool I was!


  • Other than that:
  • Ate three Scotch Bonnet chili peppers to impress a woman I knew to be a lesbian.

  • Went for a joyride on a PBR, down the Bassac, a branch of the Mekong.

  • Got off the boat and took a walk by myself. ("Don't ever get out of the boat." - Apocalypse Now)

  • Got my old BSA motorcycle stuck in a tree.

  • Threw up in the back pocket of my own jeans on my last Easter weekend in highschool.

  • Let Dagmar carry me back to her cabin.

  • Told my wife about it.



  • Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

    The craziest thing that I have ever done was volunteer at a sex show in Amsterdam.

    I had to get up in front of about 60 tourist saying "Oh My God!!!"

    I had to drop my pants and show everything to people I have never met and wont ever see again. My best friend just sat there laughiing his heart out. Boy have I never heard the last of that.
