Am I the only one ...?

Name anything(s) you have done that you sense maybe nobody else has ever has.

Indeed, but you've just kicked my post off the thread. So I'll go with being the only person here who met Kathy Horvath's mother in the queue to get back into West Berlin in the days when there were indeed two cities. That's probably safer, but less impressive, even if you know who Kathy Horvath is.

Which I don't.

I turned down a blank credit application at Alfred Dunhill of London in Beverly Hills from Abigail Folger the day before she was killed by the Manson bunch because I didn't know who she manager explained and the credit was extended but I doubt she ever paid the bill...

Kathy Horvath once beat Navratilova in the French Open, and was playing in something or other in West Berlin, which is why her mother was there. Her mother had a relative in Hungary whom she had hoped to be able to meet in East Berlin if the Hungarians had allowed her to travel. Unfortunately, they hadn't.

Been in the same green room as Will Self, Tom Paulin and Mad 'Melanie' Phillips.

And survived.

Am I the only one on here to have been admonished by Paxman for a "stupid answer" on a University Challenge rehearsal?

Did you ask him why he couldn't pronounce foreign names?

Eaten earthworm pate.

That sounds a bit earthy. I've had fried silkworms in China, they're very tasty (as is just about any fried street food).

AdonisBlue - 06 Aug 2020 19:28:29 (#83 of 106)

Very garlicky due to added garlic.

Pissed in Denis Healey's briefcase.

Unless anyone else here has played piano with Jools Holland, I reckon I’m alone in that.

How did that come about BBBilly?

Taught a member of Monty Python Pythagoras' theorem.

Had my foot run over by Stephen Hawking.

Hello, Mr. Chips.

Allison, is that you?

FinnTheHuman - 06 Aug 2020 20:23:55 (#89 of 106)

Had a tweet liked by Mark Hamill.

Snarlygog - 06 Aug 2020 20:28:11 (#90 of 106)

Cold War Steve followed me before I followed him.

FinnTheHuman - 06 Aug 2020 20:30:19 (#91 of 106)

Ghostface Killah followed me for a bit, but I think that was just down to me following Wu-Tang Clan.

#86 I was a young delegate at Labour party conference in the 70s. Went for a leak, and large figure with bushy eyebrows came in and stood at the next urinal. Forgetting what I was doing, I half turned to see if it was the great man. He'd put his briefcase on the floor between us.........

I zipped up and left before he knew what had happened. He probably blamed Benn.
