    Thread of basic things in life that you have never done/achieved?
    I have never seen The Godfather, Scarface and Star Wars.
    I have never seen an episode of The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, The Sopranos, Friends, How I Met Your Mother and all those TV shows everybody seems to talk about 24/7. The only sitcoms/series I know are Saved By The Bell, The Fresh Prince, The Dukes Of Hazzard, MacGyver, 24, Swamp People and Nathan For You.

    I have never dropped in on a vert ramp.

    I have never shotgunned a beer.

    I have never done a good frontside flip.

    I'm 32 and do not have my driver's license.

    I can barely swim.
    I've never eaten a plum.

    We have some in common.

    I don't drive.
    Can't whistle with fingers.
    Until recently I had never eaten an olive.
    Never taken Ecstacy. MDMA or that plant food shit whatever that was.
    Need to think of stuff, minds gone blank.

    I've never been outside of Europe.
    I've never dropped in on vert.
    I've never smoked a plain old cigarette
    I've never taken the Metropolitan line all the way up north to Amersham or Edinburgh or wherever it goes.
    I've never watched Shawshank Redemption.
    Which one is greater, Sun or Moon?

    The answer is The Moon because Sun shines in the day when there is already light available. But moon shines in the night when there is no light.

    I had a go at it on a bike in the deep end of Cantelowes bowl (which is both deep and vert). Partial loop-out to tricep tear to awkward climb out of the bowl to infuriating NHS incident. If this was the review thread, I'd give it a 1/10.

    I have never done a cartwheel, nor have I ever done a dive forward roll.

    Come to think of it, I've never done a backflip or frontflip of any sort, despite having played around on trampolines fairly extensively. My life feels like it's lacking for not going upside down intentionally at any point.

    Reading other posts has also reminded me that despite being 27, I've never smoked weed (or even a plain cigarette).

    I've never skated South Bank! That's a good one. Obviously I plan to change that, although I've been thinking that for 25 years.

    Unfortunately, I put myself out of that little club by taking some shit MDMA in Barcelona one time, so I don't even have that (or a good MDMA experience in Barcelona - that said, I did end up in a fairly strange Ceilidh party in the back of a Greek restaurant) to fall back on.
