    Here we go....

    1. I had an allergic reaction to Zyban at work causing me to have a seizure.
    2. I was at the last Montreal Expos home game.
    3. I had a loaded gun pointed at me and was threatened to be shot at a house party.
    4. I had lost 10 pounds in one month once when I gave up drinking.
    5. I work in Finance, but I actually have a University degree in Science and wanted to be a doctor.

    Surprisingly, and unfortunately, it is all too true. The only star I ever saw was Steve Martin. He happened to be filming a scene from the Out of Towners remake at the train station I go through every day.

    Also true. It was at the old Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh in 1980. It wasn't intended to be his final concert but unfortunately ended up as just that as he died a month or so later.

    Fred Rogers lived less than a mile away from my elementary school in Pittsburgh and did in fact attend my 3rd grade class play.

    DING DING we have a winner

    Although - it wasn't that hard to make up as my Dad (PackinSteel Sr - who actually would be BrowninSteel) did in fact bike across the country twice. The second time after his 70th birthday!

    How long did a single trip take him? How many miles did he put on in a day and what season did he start in?

    Hats off to your pops.. that is cool.

    It was one of those organized trips (he wasn't out there alone). I believe they took about 6 weeks and did 100 or more miles a day. I don't recall specifically but I believe they started late spring/early summer.

    The guy still puts more miles on his bike just around town these days than I do in the car!

    I'm going to guess #3 simply because I don't think anyone was at the Expos last home game :)

    That would be #2 regarding the Expos game, and as a matter of fact I was in attendence for that game and had amazing seats.

    You are correct. I do give up drinking from New Years to SuperBowl almost every year though.

    #4 Negative again! I have played with him about 10 times and last time we played he lost $4 to me but had to run as he was late for a game.... haven't seen him since to collect.

    This is a great thread idea. But way too confusing to follow.
