    I haven't really been a part of any major world events. I've never been at a historic sporting or political event. I've been in a hurricane but a lot of people have. But here are some things that I have seen:

    1. I've seen the blind literally leading the blind.

    2. I recently saw a possum play possum and now my mind is trapped in this theoretical vortex where I can't decide if the it is an actual possum playing possum then is it really playing?

    3. I've seen a woman leave an airport bathroom with toilet paper coming out of the top of her skirt while still attached to the roll.

    Anyone ever been a part of a major world event or a literal cliche?

    I've seen a man driving a work van on a single carraigeway while singing and whole heartedly playing an acoustic guitar, if the two seconds I heard through the open window are anything to go by, he was actually sounding quite good.

    To contrast that, millions of people have seen the Pyramids. Who leads the richer life?

    I have called a spade a spade.

    I taught an old dog a new trick.

    A couple of days ago, I paid a visit to my parents' house. While there, I decided to use their computer, which they keep in a den in their basement. Of course, this involved going on Wrestlezone forums to make a post.

    Nearly three years ago I'm working across the street from a casino where the Zetas murder many people and burn the casino down. It finally led to the Mexican government crippling the Zetas organization and chasing them out of Mexico.

    I found £10 in town. My friend told me it literally fell out of the pocket of the guy in front of us. I didn't care

    I have been a friend in need therefore I was a friend. INDEED!

    I watched a kettle and it boiled.

    I once started a rumour about myself at work knowing that all publicity is good publicity.

    I was paid to do a crime.

    I put all my eggs in the one basket.

    I wear shoes that fit.

    Every other step I put my best foot forward.

    I once lead a horse to water and made it drink.

    I stood between a Starbucks and a Starbucks.

    Witnessed a clock get launched from the balcony of a frat house. Time flew as we were having fun.

    Hailed a cab and my taxi driver's last name was King.

    The only thing of any significance I've ever been a part of was the 7/7 bombings. That came out wrong but I'm not correcting it.

    That's not really on, is it?

    The only thing that really comes to mind, barring the ordinary stuff that happens to everyone, happened when I was 16. I was walking down the street and this guy, mid 40's, walks out of the bank and literally dies infront of me. To this day it sticks with me because I saw the look on his face just switch off, he was dead before he hit the pavement, brain haemorrhage.

    I once saw a guy covered in blood dead. He'd been attacked by someone with an axe due to gambling debts (Chinese). It's not something I mention to people, horrendous.

    I once saw a hitch hiker get hit by a semi truck while I was looking out the side mirror, it looked like he exploded on impact.

    Onto a lighter note:

    I once went to a wedding with my dad and my sis. My dad was chewing gum and stuck it on the seat beside him. After the wedding ended we went to the bar before the reception, my dad sat down and when he stood up there was a wad of gum stuck to his ass, ruining his pants. Karma can truly be a bitch sometimes.

    I was caught in the middle of a knife attack when I was at school.

    A guy (former pupil actually) escaped from a nearby psych ward - yeah, explain the proximity of a psych ward to a school for me, as I have never been able to - and ran onto school property early in the morning. He went straight for the canteen to get a knife and in the process injured one of the kitchen staff, although it turned out that he had no intention of hurting anyone but himself.

    I was second on the scene and saw one of our deputy heads heading in to deal with it, and he shouted at me to evacuate the school as at the time all we knew was that there was a knife-wielding maniac on the property and a crying and bloody kitchen worker being looked after by me and my friends.

    Attempting to usher 11-17 year olds out of the school at 8.30am with no authority other than your age and not trying to create a panic was quite an experience.

    That reminds me of when I went to Bear Country in SD when I was 10. We couldn't proceed because there were two bears "playing leapfrog" (as my dad called it) right in the middle of the road.
