View Full Version : Things You Pull Off

What are some amazing acts that you have accomplished either by pure determination or sheer luck?

This one time I threw a drink can at the bin. It bounced twice then landed upright next to the bin.

Another time I flicked a cigarette away and it landed facing upwards still burning away.

Needless to say, I was hailed as a god by the locals for some time after that until I had to heal a wounded goat and couldn't. Now they're angry.

What, no Eric Clapton story?

Well this one time I got a B on my math final. That was pretty sweet.

Clearing the stream in the woods near my dads old house. Found the highest point at the stream bank (which was about three feet higher than the stream which was like, 6 inches deep and then rock), took 8 paces back and then just charged and jumped and made it. It was pretty far, too, though I can't remember how far. If I had missed I would have caned myself. (I was like, 11 at the time.)

Getting my black belt and working twice as hard as everyone else to get it because I'm not athletically talented

Predicting the exact reply to a comment i made about some one (yesterday). When i mean exact i mean EXACT. I had it word for word. People are really predictable.

Umm other than that nothing really. Probably some but i can't think of anything right now.

Oh my...

I'd say ... hm. I've done nothing noteworthy. :cry:

Me and my friend pulled off our chemistry practical on wednesday, which was pretty miraculous considering how we were pretty much pouring any liquid into any container and we still managed to get results within 0.1 of eachother. I still do not know how we managed it.

I once managed to stand on a can for about 5 seconds without it being crushed.

I have a few basketball moments which were really cool looking but total flukes. Same with some soccer ones, except this one time where I curved it round the wall and it slotted into the goal, i was only like 12 aswell.

Then there's the odd cs or other video game moment.

I've done quite a few things, such as playing the guitar solo to Promises and learning Seasons in the abyss. Well to me those are amazing.

I guess the only really amazing thing I've ever done was tell a teacher to go fuck themselves in front of the class and not get suspended for it.

Well, I fell through a huge glass ranch slider when I was little, wearing only a t shirt and shorts, and didnt get a single scratch..

Thats the only thing that sticks out in my memory

Well, I didn't feel like reading the book assigned in english class, because it was utterly stupid, and I got an A on the test.

With determination, I had the three people I use in Final Fantasy X (Tidus, Yuna, and Auron) complete the sphere grid and max their stats. I also captured 5 of every monster to get enough Dark Matter for getting the Break Damage Limit on a weapon for Tidus, because I wasn't determined enough to do the Chocobo race. It took forever for both of those things, though.

Well... I can pull of a lotta stuff. Though, most of them has to do with when I fight. With friends. Or wrestle or whatever.

One time the captains for the basketball game were choosing. I threw the ball from near half court and it went in. I got picked VERY next. ^^

It woulda rocked except I suck at basketball...
