[memes] Ten Things I’ve Done That You (Probably) Haven’t

Pace John Scalzi and Mary Robinette Kowal, here are ten things I’ve done that you (probably) haven’t.

  • Been thrashed by Amy Carter in croquet
  • Climbed down inside a classical Greek tomb through a hole in the ground
  • Held a lion cub in my arms
  • Flown deep into the Gobi Desert aboard an Antonov-17 (not the most frightening flight of my life, amazingly enough)
  • Flooded a moving car with raw sewage
  • Wrote a hot check to a recently-paroled murderer
  • Asked a truckload of heavily armed men in a Third World country for directions, well after midnight on a very lonely road, and not woken up later in a shallow grave
  • Been bitten by a pig
  • Eaten live eel soup
  • Walked on the Arctic ice
  • Fought a fatal porn fire
  • Been sent home from the hospital with a piece of my own colon in formaldehyde

Ok, so that was twelve. I couldn’t figure out which one of my favorites to cut…

What are some of the weirdest or most unusual things you’ve done?
