It was terribly embarrassing when I called Badgerman "Batman." Turns out they changed his name in the comics/movies to protect his true fake-identity.

I do kind of remember the round dials. I also kind of remember the party line. In Granny's house, where I live now, growing up there was only one phone located in the utility room. It was black and hung behind the door. It made different combinations of rings. The funny thing was that regardless whose ring it was waaaay toooo often multiple people were listening. It was weird. I much prefer our phones now days. They actually announce the name of the caller. LOVE IT!!!

The person below me will share about their curious experience at a Chinese restaurant.

well, it wasn't Chinese, it was Japanese. it was my 30th birthday and my ship was in Sasebo, Japan. I went to a restaurant one of my shipmates had shown me. the only thing on the menu I recognized was "steam rice and green tea". I expected a bowl of rice and a cup of tea. the waitress brought the meal to my counter spot and poured the tea over the rice so it was kind of like soup. There was also a sprinkling of fish flakes and a stripe of this green stuff I thought was "tea paste"--there was a little language barrier there. The first bite was okay, but a bit boring, so I stirred the "tea paste" into the rest of the food and took a big bite. Can you say "wasabi"? I felt my face turn red and my eyes began to water, but I managed to swallow. I just kept on eating--I equate the experience to eating a piece of birthday cake, lit candles and all. Now (25 years later) I use a lot of wasabi, but I'll never forget that first experience.

the person below me wants to tell us about watching an un-dubbed foreign film, with subtitles, that they were forced to watch either to impress a date or for a grade in school.

So, there I was, in a taxicab in Italy, and the driver asked if I spoke Italian. I replied "piccolo", which is apparently a slang term for something dirty, so he laughed and tried to explain it to me. I laughed and said "Io stoy embarasada" and he laughed even harder. Apparently THAT meant "I'm pregnant" not "I'm embarrassed". I imagine he had a good laugh about the whole thing.

IF THEY HAD LISTENED EARLIER, THEY WOULD KNOW THAT MY KEYBOARD SHIFT KEY IS STUCK BECAUSE MY ROOMMATE, WHO INCIDENTALLY SPENDS A LOT OF TIME ON THE COMPUTER IN HIS UNDERWEAR, DROPPED SOME HAIR PRODUCT ON THE KEYBOARD GETTING READY FOR A DATE.

Stop Yelling At Me!!!!!!!!!!! And it wasn't nerves. I told Mom my stomach didn't feel right (I guess She thought it was nerves too) - she feeds me a hearty breakfast with a big glass of OJ to start me off right. Yes, Mom. Nothing's better on an uneasy stomach than a heaping helping of citric acid. Hurts more coming up than it did going down.

REPLICA! I've never been so insulted in my life. I even have a genuine navy boarding cutlass in my collection! (Not to mention all of the D&D books back to the beginning, [including the MM with the copywright violating CofC pages]), as well as a dozen other P&P RPGs, autographed photos of the Highlander TV show actors, and Pippin from LOTR, and...nevermind, I'm a geek and I like sharp pointy things.

Well, of course I do. Have you ever SEEN a frozen unicorn? It's a most unpleasant sight--rather like an upside-down blueberry popsicle. I've got to keep them all cozy and warm so they can spread happiness and joy.

I was on shore patrol at the Great Lakes Training Station. It was night, and it had been raining. I came across two guys rolling around fighting in a mud puddle--I thought they were trying to kill each other. I asked them to leave and, to my surprise, they did.
Next patrol through the same area--same puddle--same guys. I said that I thought I'd told them to leave.
First guy looks up, all I can see of his face is he eyes.
"He lost his wedding ring," he said.
"And my wife will KILL me if I come home without it," the second guy said in a panicked voice.
I just shook my head and walked away.
