Looking back it would have had to have been when I was about 19 or 20.
I used to go in the local working mens a couple of nights a week for a game of darts.
On our road lived the president and secretary of a local biker gang/club. Not Hells Angels but some tidy lads all the same. The secretary had done time for manslaughter so he wasn't to be messed with.

They, and their chapter as it were, would drink in the club. Most nights it would just be the president and secretary but other nights the whole lot would descend, take the place over, move furniture to suit their fancies and almost drink the place dry without a hint of trouble.

The secretary though just had a bad attitude, and he'd already put the fear of god in one of the bigger blokes in the club to the extent that they called the police to escort him safely home.

So one night I'm playing darts with a chap, can't remember his name, and in the corner is the said secretary with one of his 7 rottweilers.
This one was the brood bitch for his pack, and she was as vicious as her owner.

The secretary, let's call him Mick, liked to give s**t to people sometimes and tonight it was our turn.


I can't remember what he said but being young, dumb and full of ..... I gave him some back. In spades.

He took right umbrage and threatened to send the dog at me, to which I replied "Does it like to eat glass?" and lowered my pint glass towards it :oops:

That was when the world stood still. He looked at me for what seemed an eternity and then started laughing. I was the first one in there stupid enough to bump heads with him, and in his own way I earned his respect, which was handy because I dread to think of the alternative.

After that he was quite friendly, but boy did I push my luck that night.

Served behind the bar in a Welsh Rugby club wearing an England shirt after England beat Wales 60 - 24 at Twickenham in 1998. For a land of song the Taffies were quiet that night!!!!

I once put my dog on the lead and tried to start a fight with a herd of cows (complete with calfs).
First time I ever played rugby and first time I heard cows bark.

Voluntarily went into a live minefield, voluntarily played a casualty in a mountain rescue involving a helicopter.

I freely admit i've stood there while she's had a rampage session and let her punch the hell out of me.... few days later gone to work with a nice black eye and the head doorman says "**** me Al what happened to you", so i told him, the Mrs abuses me but i'm to scared to leave, he bursts into laughter and asks me what really happened, i told him that D had given me the black eye during an argument.

He looks at me and says "man, don't tell people that, tell them you got jumped by 5 guys but you managed to fight them all off".... that was a mistake, i look at him and say "two weeks ago you had a massive shiner and a thick lip, when we asked you what happened you told us 5 guys had jumped you but you'd managed to beat them off and left two of them in worse condition than you..."
He started to mumble something but i cut him dead and said "i will never believe you again when you tell me how you got a black eye etc", he told me to **** off and stormed off :D

Getting into a sidecar outfit as a passenger for 10 laps of Cadwell Park.......only after the second corner did I realise it might not be such a good idea and that the guy piloting the thing was a complete nutter.......managed 5 laps before slightly miss calculating the gooseneck.....next thing I knew was I laid on a bed in the medical centre...luckily only a bruised back and 2 broken fingers...but I stuck to solo's after that

Been attacked by a crocodile and charged by a leopard, in another life, got shot (still have the bullet in my leg!), jumped from some hideous heights into tiny, deep pools while canyoning (think that trait started when I jumped off the top of High Force as a 16 year old!). Been in the water involuntarily on at least 3 occasions with sharks that had a definite sharp end ... can probably come up with a few more if I think about it .... 150mph+ in an open-topped 5ltr TVR :)

Mine is tame but on a stag do 2 years ago absolutely hammered jumped into the Spree in Berlin from a party boat, I was too drunk to get back in and thought I was a goner! :rolleyes:

In reality I am pretty sure my mates wouldn't have let me drown, but being 18 stone I am not easy to pull back aboard.
