[This topic derives from the 'ometimes I Wish....' one.  Its the memories you will have when refecting in the old people's home - and as such can be anything you can conceive of.  Hence the famous aging Münchhausen who flew from a cannon, visited the moon and tied his horse to a tree on a wintry night only to discover it hanging from a church steeple the next morning when the snow melted etc etc...]

yup, when you are sitting in the oild folks home with all the pictures of you dancing covering your bedroom wall Shocked

I remember when......

Baron Münchhausen!!!

*loves*

Did you know there's a rolepaying game based on him? A whole bunch of people sit around a table and tell (rather far-fetched) stories of their exploits. It's sooooo so fun to play. It's originally meant to be a drinking game - people can challenge your story and its truthfulness if they buy you a drink - but we play it with chocolate coins.

It's hilarious.

As is the movie.

However, I have nothing else to contribute to this thread, because I'm not really old enough.

Though I do like scaring small children by telling them that I'm so old that when I was their age, Pluto was a planet.

you missed the point - you are supposed to imagine you are in the OPH and relating your adventures and expolits.  You only need to be old enough to write ... Wink

Oh that's nothing. I could tell tales that would make your hair curl.

Alas, not one of them is forum-friendly. Not suitable at all for the ears of the young ladies. A grave disappointment...I would so have loved to share.

I remember the time in the amazon in the early 18th century when I was swallowed by an anaconda snake the length of the concord.  Fortunately I had my mountain climbing gear with me and did my crevis-climibing method to get right through the beast and out his tail.  When there I wraped the thing round a tree and tied a knot between the head and tail.  The local Pinca indians recognized me as a god and gave me 300 extra years to live with their most powerful potions.

If only I could find another such anaconda

I remember when I was in bed making sweet love to my beautiful girlfriend.......

Wait, maybe that really happened but it's been so long that I don't remember anymore and think it's just a dream.  Undecided

That reminds me when I met such an anaconda, at least 25 feet long. Fortunatley one of mu guides had told me exactly what to. His name was Hokumbi from the Wehda-fakawi tribe. He told me that if anaconda were to start to eat me feet first I should start to eat him from his tail. Having recently won a black pudding cooked in Birds extra thick batter contest; the anaconda slipped down nicely aided with a little HP sauce; when it dawned on the anaconda that I was eating it faster than it was eating me; it decided to spit me out.
