Following on from Staffy's thread about GoT, what's the most common thing you've never done (apart from having sex, natch....)?

I've never played a game of Monopoly.

Don't get this 'I refuse to do something because it's popular' thing. You miss out.

I watched the first series of GOT - will never watch again. Went to Nandos, was alright. Went skiing for the first time last year, might go again. Tried most drugs, enjoyed most of them, but the only one I found addictive as diazepam. Never fancied acid though. Got invited on a freebie to Kazhakstan (sp?) today. Might do it - why not?

I've never been to Birmingham or Liverpool, does that count?

Will try most things once, why not? Found oysters repulsive, cat rather less so. Unfortunately watched Love Island once. No one made me watch it again.

Things I havn't done, on my list for next couple of years

1 - watch my team at Wembley
2 - Himalaya Base Camp

Samesies. I'm 27 in November though, so I think I'm going to get lessons when I'm in Canada in the winter. It's not too bad in the UK, but in stupidly big countries (like now), driving would be useful.

First of all, never use the word "samesies" again.

The only reason I'd start learning is if I feel I need to for working purposes. But as I don't live in a rural area and can get anywhere on our fantastic railway network, I've never felt the actual need to drive. I have no interest in cars, my Dad has worked for a major railway company all his life so I've grown up on trains and public transport. My half-brother on the other hand (his father is a petrol-head) spends thousands of pounds (mostly takes out loans), on his Ford ST or whatever it is, has a personalised number plate, bumpers etc. Until last year he'd never even commuted out of our small home town for work. Each to their own and everything, but it seems like a monumental unnecessary expense to me. Then again, he loves driving, it's his passion, and probably feels the same about me travelling 100 miles on a Tuesday night to watch park football in some shithole.

As for your post on the other thread that I was too busy to reply to the other day, you're not the sole autonomous voice of having lived and worked in China. Needless to say I have obvious reservations about going there and working under a country ruled by the CCP, and to be honest I didn't think I would ever have considered it after the bureaucratic nightmare week I had in Shanghai. But I've thoroughly researched Shenzhen and it seems like a good albeit soulless city to live in: comparatively green and lack of pollution (by Chinese standards), because it's a new planned city it's easy to get around. It's literally on the border of HKG and you can get downtown there on the metro system within 1.5 hrs. It's a great transport hub and base to travel around the rest of Asia. I've messaged currently colleagues at the centre and it seems like a decent environment to work in. Good wage + accommodation provided. It's just an option at the moment and I'm considering it.

I always take the lid off a nice burger... Improves the bread to meat ration, and generally a nice burger looks nice.

Maccas has flat soggy rolls (and flat soggy burgers) so the ratio thing doesn't really apply. And, like , they don't look great with their tops off.

But I have driven a single seater racing car (twice, Brands and Thruxton) and a 2-man bobsleigh at Kitzbuhel at the training school back in the 1960s. But my favorite day was flying from Ottawa to Toronto on a Sunday afternoon and finding that I was the only passenger - bliss, my very own plane.

Never been outside Europe (until end October anyway). Never been skiing and don’t intend to. I mean there are loads of other things, eg never performed at the Albert Hall, played the xylophone on live television, but the first two are the ones that spring to mind.

You need to get a televised gig playing the xylophone at the Albert Hall. Then you'd knock two off the list in one night. Efficient.

Chess is really best taught at very young age.

I learned chess at about 7 to 8 year old.

Entered quite few tournaments and won one which was Derby Deaf Chess championship in 1995.

Lost interest in chess soon after.

I was taught how to play by a babysitter when I was eight. Haven't played for years, mind.

On a similar line, I've never played poker.

Nor have I smoked or attended an England game. Having been to about 1300 matches the latter is a bit more of a surprise than the former - never been interested to even have one puff of a cigarette.

I've never sat down and contemplated the crushing futility of life in a world without religion, where we are all just chemically propelled flesh, blood and bone, competing to pass on our genes in an evolutionary race we neither understand nor consciously care about.

In my experience, golfers are more boring. They’ve got different courses, clubs, shoes, events etc etc and love to go into the minutiae of every shot. They rarely see the glazed expression on ones face as reason to stop.

Skiers are almost as boring but completely evangelical twats. If you tell someone who likes skiing that you’ve never been, they won’t shut up about how ‘you should go,’ or even ‘you must go.’

If you can tolerate the company of such a presumptuous bore, and ask them what they like about it, generally the second or third thing they mention is the apres-ski. What sort of f**king magical experience can it be if people very soon start talking about getting pissed and eating melted cheese??!

For these reasons I hate skiers much more.

Incorrect. Far happier people, looking to do fun tricks and generally have a laugh, rather than twats trying to perfect their parallel turn to make it technically superior.

You need the tricks* to liven up a sedate experience.

Speed is nothing without control, hence the need to get those turns correct.







*Tricks are available on skiis, if they weren't I wouldn't have prolapsed a disc in a snowpark.

Once you learned a jump did you stop trying to learn how to jump better?

You can go down smoothly at 20mph or you can improve your turns and go down smoothly at 50mph. 50mph is a lot more fun.

Parks are fun but there's a whole mountain out there.

If you tell someone who likes skiing that you’ve never been, they won’t shut up about how ‘you should go,’ or even ‘you must go'

Maybe there's a reason for that. Nothing better than, say, a day on the slopes somewhere in the Alps in March, with the sun beating down after a heavy snowfall the previous week.

I've never had that.much time for the apres ski side; usually knackered after a hard day on the planks.

You really should try it.

Early 90's on my way to Brighton on my Vespa I stopped outside BP in the middle of the night to take a few snaps of the scooter against the gates and got rapidly moved on by the coppers, they said I was making the sentry's nervous.

And that was after being hoyed out of Victoria station catching a few z's in my sleeping bag.
