    Friday QOTW-What's something that happened to you but sounds like a lie when told?

    What is something that has happened to you but sounds like a complete lie when you tell people?

    (Stealing this one from another site)

    Dear Penthouse Forum, I know you'll never believe this but I swear it really happened....


    Edit: At least we know which site you stole it from!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Not gonna lie, I have never looked in a playboy or penthouse or any other "dirty" magazine. The internet was powerful and fast enough by the time I hit puberty, I didn't need magazines.

    I would delve into my dating experiences but 1. You may not believe them and 2. I'm saving them for a book.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I helped name the space shuttle Endeavour.

    Nice, although you should expand.

    For all you Blue Sky Creamery fans out there, I helped name that place. They were working with my dad (restaurant designer), and were going to introduce this new type of ice cream. They wanted to call it Nitro Ice Cream or something. I said that didn't sound good to me (I was 10-12) and I thought people would like it more if it had a more inviting name.

    It doesn't sound nearly as cool when I tell the background story though.

    When I was in 6th grade, NASA sponsored a contest to name the newest space shuttle that was being built. 2 winners from each state (middle school and high school) would be selected, and the name then chosen from those state winners. You had to use the name of an explorer's ship and put together a project describing why that name would be appropriate for the shuttle.

    I was on the winning middle school team from Iowa, and we chose the name Endeavour. We didn't get selected as the overall winner for the middle school division, but hey, why let some little facts get in the way of a good story, right?

    Still got to go on an all-expenses paid trip to Orlando to watch the Endeavour's first launch a few years later as a nice consolation prize. Disney, Universal Studios, the whole nine yards.

    When I was 20, I was riding a little girls pink bike down Welch drunk and was stopped by a cop. He asked me what house I took the Bike from and asked for my ID. I had to explain to him that we purchased the Bike from Goodwill, and I had no ID on me as my wallet was stolen the day before, and wouldn't really be able to provide much proof in the future as I was leaving the country in 3 days.

    He ended up getting my name and social security number to see if my story checked out. He called it in to verify I made a police report about my wallet getting stolen at Beyer Hall. As I was leaving the country in a few days, he cut me some slack and told me to go home. New documents/credit cards arrived just in time before I left for Study Abroad in Australia.

    I once was driving down Duff and stopped at the light at 13th. There was a guy mowing his lawn next to me and he hit a decent sized rock. The rock went in my open passenger window, right between my face and the windshield and out my open driver's side window. The lawn mower guy looked at me and I looked at him. We both kind of chuckled and shrugged shoulders and I drove on.
