What are some things you've never done that might surprise us?

Asked by Aster (15866 points ) January 6th, 2013

Name a few things you’ve never done in your entire life that would probably amaze us!
I’ve never: eaten frogs’ legs or raw clams; been to Europe; been on a cruise; swam successfully; flown in a helicopter.
How about you? What have you never done?

I’ve never had a proper grown up holiday.

Aster's avatar

You mean you’ve never been on vacation?

Shippy's avatar

@Aster Yes, we call it holiday. Never have as an adult. Strange I know.

never have seen Star Wars in full

SuperMouse's avatar

I have never seen a single episode of Star Trek. I grew up in Southern California and I have never been surfing or skiing.

I have never seen the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and I sure as hell ain’t gonna go see it in 3D!

I have never used a cell phone. I don’t want to be tethered to others 100% of the time and I also do not get reception in my little mountain lair. Last of the untethered. haha

Never seen the Twilight series

May not be much of a suprise, but certainly where I come from that’s just wierd!

I’ve never had a threesome.
I“ve never jumped out of an airplane.
I’ve never considered owning a dog.
I’ve never mastered building a dry wall or playing the banjo.
I have never been able to whistle between my teeth in a shrill and piercing manner.

sakura's avatar

my dad taught me to whistle through my teeth! The children in my class are all fascinated by it! It took me ages to learn how to do it!

Aster's avatar

I can only whistle while inhaling; not a bit while exhaling .

@sakura:What was the trick? There are many Youtube videos but all I seem to be able to do is spit and spray.

SuperMouse's avatar

@gailcalled strange to hear, I have always had you pegged as a banjo playing drywall hanger.

bookish1's avatar

I’ve never read Harry Potter… Which seems like the only book that one may reasonably assume all literate members of my age group have read.

Dutchess_III's avatar

” banjo playing drywall hanger.”.....LOLL @SuperMouse! You meant a WHISTLING, banjo playing drywall hanger!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I’ve never read Harry Potter either, @bookish1.

bossob's avatar

I’ve taken a threesome off my bucket list.

cutiepi92's avatar

@bossob random question, but how does that work? I suppose I always imagined that one person would be getting more attention that the other lol. My bf and I are a bit too jealous to add anyone else to the mix lol

bossob's avatar

@cutiepi92 Uh, I dunno.

To clarify, having an opportunity to be in a threesome was on my bucket list all my life. But it never happened. Now that I’m an old married guy, I don’t want it to happen.

To relate to the original question, I don’t know if the surprise is that I never had one, or that I no longer want one. As a young man, I was a walking talking boner. I’m surprised that I no longer have the desire for a threesome!

josie's avatar

I have never been to a professional soccer game

mrentropy's avatar

I’ve never seen Pulp Fiction. And I haven’t had a vacation (a proper one) since becoming an adult.

AshLeigh's avatar

Never read/seen Harry Potter.
Never caught a fish. I live in Alaska, so this is strange.
Never gone hunting.
Never been snowboarding.
Never been to a concert.

cutiepi92's avatar

@bossob I don’t think it’s really surprise. But this is of course me assuming that only a very small percent of the population has actually had one

Coloma's avatar

I have also never had a regular 9–5 job and I pray I can keep it that way. haha

gailcalled's avatar

I have never stolen an outhouse, although @Symbeline has just taught me to say that in French. When do you think an opportunity might arise?

@Supermouse: Hanging drywall and building a dry stone wall are two different things. I was not clear, but meant using piles of stones without mortar..see here

wundayatta's avatar

I’ve never taken LSD.

For the longest time, I had never ridden a roller coaster, either. But I was probably about 43 when I rode a baby roller coaster (at an amusement park near the intersection between 287 and 95), and that is still the only roller coaster I have ever ridden.

poisonedantidote's avatar

I never had a school photo taken, I used to run off and hide from it. I have no idea why, I can’t quite remember, I just remember that I did not trust it the first time, so I run off and refused, and then it just kind of became a tradition.

Shippy's avatar

@Coloma Perish the thought, that is slow death for me. Rather shoot me.

Pachy's avatar

Never seen “Sound of Music” or TV’s “Family Guy”

Dutchess_III's avatar

Never heard Justin Beiber sing

bookish1's avatar

@Dutchess_III : LUCKY!!!!! I heard a clip of one of his songs on NPR last weekend….I couldn’t reach the dial in time…

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room: You’re not missing anything, IMHO…
