this is my 1000 post in this great forum and I had to celebrate with a new topic.
and as the line reads, tell me a story!
there's only one rule: Only true stories
Obviously I cant check if you choose to lie, but I trust people. so stick to the truth!

And if you want to discuss a story please do that HERE

I can start with a story:

Last summer me and two friends were in our nations capitol (Stockholm, Sweden) to shop around and look at pretty girls.
we went up early in the morning, the drive takes about 5 hours. and we started out going from shop to shop
bot mostly we spent our time at the Sci-Fi Bookshop(they have all kinds of stuff there including a BUNCH of manga and anime).
all in all it was a good day. but i was kinda edgy the entire time. i was working the day after so i was kinda in a rush to get
back home so could go to sleep, but my friends was all like: "no come on just another shop!" and i tagged along.
the time came closer and closer to 6 which was the time i wanted to go so i could atleast get a decent sleep before work at
7 in the morning. but noooooooo. my friends wanted to go see a movie. and that started at 10. so i was like:
"ok if you guys drive the entire way home so I can sleep in the backseat then ok". and they agreed. so now i stoopped being all edgy and enjoyed my time.
bought a lot of good movies and then we went to the cinema. saw Wedding Crashers lmao, and then it was time to go home.
i jump in the backseat and fall asleep pretty immidietly. im a very hard sleeper so i didnt wake up once the entire drive,
until we have about 10 kilometers left. i wake up and i hear my friends arguing: "come on i really need to pee, cant you just pull over?"
"we only have a mile left, hold it in"
"dude i cant! just stop the car and ill go right here!"
"but there arent any rest-stops its illegal"
"who cares? its 4 in the morning nobodys out! just stop!"
"ah, ok then" so the car pulls over and i hear them both getting out but i try to go back to sleep.
a few minutes pass and i hear them getting back and the guy that needed to pee asks if he should drive?
they agree on that and sits down in the car and we start moving again. im not fully awake and im not totally asleep either but i hear
the car changing gears 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. then everything happened really fast.
"SHIIIIIIT!!!!!"
BANG!!!
SCREEEEAAACH!!!!! (tires sliding on asfalt)
remember how i'm lying down almost asleep in the backseat? and im not wearing a seatbelt... i go flying right in the backs of the front seats
and this is how my back hit right in between them ^ it bended in a very unnatural way and then i fall down to the floor and hit my knee
against something very sharp and the pain and the blood really suck....
And now im stuck, the first thing i asked: "What the hell did we hit???" (my mind is telling me we hit an elephant or something)
"a fucking deer...." (THAT WAS IT??? a fuckin deer? it hurt like hell and i flew like in 90km/h for a deer??? WTH???)
"guys let me out im stuck" and they let me out and i look at my leg and yeah its bleading and my back hurts and my car has a huge
bump in the side. So now we have to figure out what to do... and thats not so easy when youre shocked. but the guy that wasnt driving (a hell his name is mårten)
mårten takes out his cell phone and says we have to report it to the cops. sure go ahead.
Viktor (the driver) all of a suddens starts to breath very heavy and screams:
"OH SHIT! look on the road its the head! the head of the deer!!! look!"
wth? i turn around and yes i see something on the ground behind the car (its still pretty dark outside so its hard too see)
but it doesnt really look like a head, so I start limping towards the thing to check what it is and as i approach it i kinda get a feeling...
I turn around and look at the car, i look at the thing, i look at the car, i look at the thing.
"Its my goddamn rear view mirror!!!!" surely it was, and our heads all at the same time turns down the way we came and there we see
the deer standing on very wobbly legs walking towards the side of the forest.... Thats were i burst. I just couldnt stop laughing.
it looked so adorable when it went back to the wild..
but now it was time to talk to the cops. Now the thing you need to know about MÃ¥rten is that he's the biggest player in the world and when he talks to
girls his voice gets a certain tone thats very very easy to notice if you know the guy.
Guess what! its a lady cop in the phone and what does MÃ¥rten do? yeah you guessed it. the voice changes and he starts hitting on her!
im standing in the middle of the road with a bleeding leg an effed up back and a crashed car... did he care? no.
so he talks to her for about 10 minutes reporting what happened and in between the serious things he asks a few personal questions to the coplady...
asshole. but hey it was fun. i got to laugh some more.

so that was it pretty much. we got back in the car and drove home. i was laughing almost the entire time cause the entire thing was pretty funny when
you looked at it. MÃ¥rten had been driving the entire time until Viktor needed to pee. and thats when its only 10 km left on a 5 hour ride. Viktor had just
gotten his driving license like 2 weeks before. so it was all just great stuff. i actually had a blast!
my knee wasnt injured badly it was just a fleshwound so no biggie. but my back got a little screwed up. cant really lift heavy stuff anymore, but who cares?
The car was insured so i didnt have to pay anything for the repairs so it was all good. I know this sounds weird but it was pretty funny...
Maybe its one of those situations that you had to be there to get why it was so funny, but what the hell.

now that was one of my many weird but true stories. would you like to share one of yours?

one time.. in the band camp..

does it have to be funny or anything as long as it's interesting AND TRUE (e.g. touching, scary, or inspirational) ?

(and maybe a discussion thread for it? or we can discuss about it here too?

well..hm.. can't really think of any right now..
very sleepy..
but here's a couple..
theme: i believe my world is really small...

i started a new job few weeks ago at a chinese takeaway as a kitchen hand..
so i met an indonesian guy too there..
so while we're doing our job we're chatting along..
and he told me he's gonna finish his undergraduate soon..
so i asked him his plan for the future.. and he said he might open up a new restaurant in australia..
he said his big bro's wife has opened 1 restaurant in Sydney and was pretty successful..
(i was just from sydney the week before.. holiday and visiting some of my dad's cousins and friends there..)
so i asked him..which restaurant..i might have gone there before..
he told me the name of the restaurant.. Shalom..
i was surprised..not only I ate there the week before.. but the owner is my dad's cousin.. he took us around sydney

so i was like.. "heh!"
he looked at me funny and he asked me if i know his brother or something..
and i said no, but i know the owner and the daughter.. he's my dad's cousin..

so
my dad's cousin, had a daughter, who's married to this guy, who had a little brother in brisbane, who is my workmate now..

and then he was telling me that the marriage was held in Bandung (java island) last february.. and i said, i know! coz i was there too... apparently he sit in front with the family.. i was stuck at the back near the food table pigging myself out :D
coincidence..coincidence..


---------
hm.. my friend in indo just got a girlfriend..he sent me a pic of her GF and her friends.. i recognize one of her friend as my classmate back in junior high 9 years ago which i happened to had a big big crush.. she's so hot, she's a model now..
------
and i met this girl at #lurk.. who turned out to be indonesian too.. who turned out to be in sydney..
who turned out to be my friend's roommate..
-----
the worst one... my dad told his 2 best friends (since high school) that i'm dating this girl, and her dad is the owner of an airline and a artist-producing company (apparently, my dad thought he got the bragging rights :D) funny enough.. one of his best friends told him that he's doing a construction job for their family... and that's not all.. when his friend mention my gf's mum's name... my dad other friend was shocked.. coz my gf's mum is his nephew.. they're from the same grandpa..
and apparently.. my dad often played to his house when he was little..so he must have met my gf's mum when he was little...
---


i have to sleep now..

karasu's stories got me thinking. here's mine, happened while I was in New Zealand.

I was staying with a Home Stay family. They took in 3 other girls from my home town. I've never met them before this. 4 of us became friends. The coincidences:
1. One of them stays in the same area as me back home. Her house is literally just down the road. That's not all, when i sent our group picture home, my mum recognised her as being my class mate from Kindergarten! (my mum has photographic memory). I asked her and it turned out to be true. We both attended the same kindergarten from the same year.

2. Another friend's phone number back home is exactly like mine except 2 numbers were reversed, e.g. 234565 and 243565. And she has received a number of phone calls from ppl looking for me or the rest of my family. When I gave her my phone number, the first thing she said was "OH! So the phone calls were for you!" :smile-big

Oh, this is like Hyaku Monogatari (100 tales of horror), but without the horror :D I got to get in on this!

Many ppl say I "live in my own little world", don’t know if there is a saying like that in English, but in short it means that I don’t have any grip on what’s going on around me. This has created lots of embarrassing moments for me, and here are some of them.

A couple of years ago, in the middle of the summer, me and my friend linus were having a mini LAN party. We hade been sitting in front of our computers for like 2 weeks and we were running low on caffeine. This was under my "rebellious" period when I hade Mohawk, tattered clothes and lots of spikes and leather.
As luck hade it, linus HOT HOT HOT big sister hade a drivers license and agreed to take us somewhere to buy some refreshments. You might find it weird that none of us hade a driver’s license, but in Sweden you need to be 18 to get one... and I can’t afford one :D In the last minute linus changes his mind about going (Everquest does that to you), so we leave him behind. When we got to the store, the HOT sister (Lisa is her name by the way) says "Can you buy me an Ice cream?". "Sure" I said and left for the store. When I was in there I stashed up with cola, snuff and started looking for some ice cream. Well, since it was in the middle of the summer, most of it was sold out. The only thing they got was some crappy plain vanilla, but I bought it anyway. Then I walked back to the car, wondering if I could finish a quest and gain a level with my shadowknight in EQ, and jumped in to the passenger seat of the car. "The shit store only had this crap vanilla, hope its ok". I hand the ice cream to the 50 years old lady sitting next to me, she was really pale for summer I think. My mind slowly reacted. How did the hot sister turn to a 50 years old hag? I look past her, in the car next to us, and see the hot sister laughing her ass of. Slowly I mumble "wrong car" and step out. This is one of MANY stories. I have taken the wrong cars, busses, apartments and more.

Will probably write some more stories later on, have a couple of them :D

Hmmm. Well, I think I'll talk about the origian of a phobia. Just because I want to. :p

When I was eight years old, I was the epitome of "little girl." I loved flowers and colors and rainbows and dresses. Anyone within hearing range knew of my dislikes, and a certain little sister of mine (the opposite of me personality-wise, coincidentally) delighted in said dislikes. So, one day, she got the brilliant idea to dangle something green and writhing in front of my face. I looked at it and it looked at me, and then it <i>croaked</i>. I squealed and unlocked my jaw and howled for all the world to hear. Then, for some odd reason, the <b>tree frog</b> decided to leap...into my <i>mouth</i>! For the life of me, I'll never understand why it did that. To this day, I have slight problems dissecting amphibians for biology...and I blanch when offered frog legs.

Stories, huh? Good idea. I don't have many myself but I heard just the other day, while I was up in the mountains looking at our new house, that a couple of fishermen had seen a brown bear standing right in the driveway to their home. Looks like I may have some good ones coming for ya guys if I move over there ;)

OK..i just remember this funny story...

we were still in secondary school (you might call it junior high) in singapore...
we were chatting in the class... and my friend shouted "JANCUK!" (indonesian language, east javanese dialect, meaning F*CK but particularly more offensive for eastern java people.. other side of indonesia just use it like "SH*T!")
the teacher (pretty funny and lenient, he let us off for chatting in her class.. she was subbing for someone but we didn't have any lesson) she came to us and said.. "hey you guys, no swearing in class.. i heard you were shouting something.. and i believe it was vulgar... "

so my friend defended himself.. "no, teacher.. "jancuk" is not dirty at all.. "jan" means "NO" and "cuk" means "MANNERS" (so not true!).. so i'm just saying that these guys don't have any manners.."
the teacher replied: "ok! so you guys are all Jancuk as well.. for chatting in my class"
we were all laughing so hard.. she started to not believing him.. and we all back him up saying it's true...

so class over...recess... after-recess lessons..and of course after that... to the street soccer field :D

then we met our friend there..who came from surabaya, eastern java... he was in the lower class..
he was laughing so hard.. and asked us what did we do...
coz after recess.. that same teacher was having a lesson in his class.. and he was chatting too..
(this time is a lesson time..so he wasn't supposed to chat in class)
so she shouted at him, "hey you guys, stop chatting!! you all JANCUK!!"
he was shocked.. really shocked.. (remember the origin of the word and his origin)
and he asked how she knew the word..
she said that some upper-classmen (us) told her..
coz he was laughing so hard.. she asked again if the meaning of the word is really "no manners"
he just said "yeah of course!"

i don't really know if she's still calling indonesian people "jancuk" after that... the school had major changes as 3 schools were merged together and she was transferred somewhere...


===========================================================
another one..

cell phone craze that time..so teachers has been particularly strict about using them in class for sms-ing..
so in math class.. one of my friends was pretending to be hiding something below the table and pressing buttons on it..
the teacher was teaching.. so we just wait till the bait sets in..
suddenly the class go quiet.. she stopped talking and started walking to my friend.. we were all holding our laughters...
and she was like.. "take it out!"
and my friend slowly took it out.. a calculator..
and she blushed like tomato.. and we were laughing so loud... one of my friend can't even stop laughing we have to bring him to the infirmary... the teacher can't stop laughing throughout her lesson as well..

OOo I have a few intersting stories to tell. :amuse

Caution this is long!! o_O

Lets see...there was this time when I was traveling across the states that I had a rather alarming and uncomfortable night. The whole mess started when I was leaving Ohio for the first time and I was driving (by myself) to settle down in California. For those of you who are not familiar with USA geography theses states are on almost the opposite sides of the continent and in total was about 3 days of straight driving. I left with high hopes and the words of my Mother ringing in my ears about be safe....call everynight etc etc. It was my first time away from home so it was a bit fightening, but very exciting at the same time, I mean I was going to see the country! How fun that was going to be! This is coming from the girl that had never left the state that she lived in except on one occasion to see the ocean and some family up North.

So away I went, but about after two days of driving the thrill had rapidly died....in fact I was quite positive that I never wanted to see my car again. I mean what are you supposed to do while driving that long? After a bit the radio stations go away, you have listened to all your CD's and you are driving thru the desert (aka not much to see), but the worst thing that I remember was how incredibly tired I was getting. So the 2nd night of driving, I think that I was somewhere around Alberque, New Mexico and I tried to stop for the night at a hotel. It was late and I was already half asleep on my feet and all that I wanted to do was crash in a nice comfy bed. However my hopes were soon dashed when I got to the counter and the attendent polietly informed me that there was no rooms avaliable. And then to top it off I was told that it was likely that I would not be able to find anything because the tourist season was under way and unless you had a reservation you are out of luck. I thanked her and determined that there was no way that she could be right....I mean I should be able to find something....it was a large city right?

About 4 hotels later I was getting desperate, I did not want to wander too far from the freeway since I had no clue where I was....my options were getting smaller and smaller. Finally I just started driving again....about 3 hours later, I was starting to see things when I saw a very tiny little sign that was advertising a hotel off the freeway a bit. Hopefull that this was far away and remote enough that they should have openings I eagerly started down the road that the sign was pointing. About 10 minutes of driving later I am starting to think that I went the wrong way....the road was now just packed dirt and there were cornfields on either sides. But then just as I was about to turn back I saw a blinking neon sign advertising a hotel. I was saved!

Then I drove up a little closer and did a double take. This 'hotel' looked like something straight out of a horror film. Let me try to desribe this, directly across the hotel and its gravel parking lot was a huge cornfield, that at night stretched far beyond what I could see, the vacency sign was blinking off and on with that little electric hiss, and as I turned my attention to the front area....I saw that the window where you checked in had bars over it. Inside this little mock cell of plastic and metal there was a man of undeterinable age puffing away on a cigarette. The smoke from this had filled the little office area he was in giving the whole scene a rather sureal look. I could clearly see all the doors to the other rooms as they were all facing the parking lot in a small semi circle. O yes....straight from a horror novel and into real life.

So telling myself that I was being silly....there were obviously other people that had decided to stay here right? Maybe it just looked bad because it was super late and I was overly tired. I walked up to the counter and started talking to the man about prices etc....in fact I was just about to sign the paperwork and hand over my credit card when he asked me a question that made me stop. "So....", he said casually..."are you all alone?" Obviously I was, but I looked up he was smiling at me....and it was not a "yay I am so happy to meet you smile", it was more like a creepy, suggestive smile that made a small chill go down my back...and I was suddenly very very aware of how quiet it was...how very remote. I put the pen down. "You know" I said, "I think that I suddenly feel more awake, I am going to keep driving a bit" He looked me in the eye and said, "well you know that there is nothing around for miles, this is the last stop" I think that I nervously laughed and started stepping away...now seriously creeped out. With that I hopped in my car and speed away back to the relative safty of the freeway.

Unfortunetly I wish I could say that was the end of my night....but I still needed sleep....badly. It was starting to get to the point that I was concerned about falling asleep at the wheel....because my mind was going very fuzzy. To this day I am not sure how far I really made it, but I eventually ran across a truck stop and without another thought, pulled my tiny car alongside some huge semis and fell asleep instantly.

When I woke up the next morning, rather stiff and uncomfortable (sleeping in a car is miserable, not to mention humbling) I stumbled into the eating area and asked someone what state I was in....since I really had no clue. After someone gave me that information, I randomly picked a pay phone and called my Mom (since I did not exaclty have the opportunity last night). When I heard her concerned voice on the other end, I knew that there was no way that I could worry her more.....and I then told her that I had stopped for the night (no lie) and just got a early start on the morning (sort of true, since I woke up to the fear of my car being mashed by a semi). After that call I picked up the scattered remnants of my dignity, changed in the restroom, washed my hair in the sink, and hopped back on the road. This time....a little more grateful for the normal comforts that we all tend to take for granted.

:amuse

I found 20 dollars once by a shack while my mom and I was walking home from a store; we REALLY needed that money at the time in order to have a nice Thanksgiving, so it did have a impact on us. XD (I was around nine years old.)

I have a story. It happened yesterday.

At the camp I work at, we have Junior Councilors and Senior Councilors. I'm a Junior, but the Senior's were playing MUSICAL CHAIRS for the kids.

Once all the chairs were gone, and only one left, all the councilors had to sit on that one chair. And the chair... broke. THE END.

My sister, Eden (Who is now 28) met her husband of 3 months when they were freshmen in highschool. He played an April Fools Day Prank on her in the cafeteria, and felt bad afterwords, so he carried her books for her to class. Soon they got together, dated for 14 years, then got married on....dare I say it?

April 1, 2006. Exactly 14 years after they met.

Best love story EVER.

Edit (a year and a half later >.>;): She's totally not my biological sister. Just my sister n every other way <3

LMAO. That's hilarious. What type of dog was it? was it one of those little yappy dogs or a big dog?
I'll say this for the rest of my life: You have the best signatures. I love cloud and seph.

Here's my story:

I had trouble with my ACL and MCL in my right knee (Anterrior Cruciate Ligament and Medial Collatoral Ligament, found in the front and medial sides of the knee), after I injured it in a field hockey game awhile back.

Anyways, I had begun to have pain in my knee while exercising, and I began to worry that maybe my ACL and MCL had become weak as a result of not going to PT. So I went to my doc and I instead found out that I have Patella Tendinitis (inflammation of the Patella tendon, which hangs from the femur to hold the patella in place over the knee joint.)

Relieved that nothing major was wrong, and that it could be treated with a patella band and ibuprofen, I left the office with a smile on my face. As I walked out of the building, an air in my step, I was humming a happy tune, watching some little kids chase each other. I began to walk down the numerous concrete steps (No joke, there's like a hundred of them. Think Rocky.) Well, I began to daydream. I was about halfway down the steps when one of those kids playing around runs into me, hitting my knee, which locked, and I fell down the steps, my left ankle caught beneath me and I hear a "crack". The pain was unmentionable.

I had broken my ankle. So, I had just left my doctor, and I got to see him all over again.

Just thought I'd share my streak of bad luck.

More to (most likely) come soon,

<3 :kkbook

PS: on a happier note, I don't have to go into work for awhile!

I have a story. It happened yesterday.

We (my parents, my brother, his best friend and me) went on a day-trip to the Netherlands. Since the weather is so hot, we wanted to spend a nice day at the beach. We left home at 8am and kept on driving for some three hours until we arrived at the cost. There, we just had to find a beach, which took us another half an hour. Oviously, we found one and had a great time. Everything had gone well until then.
In the afternoon we packed up and got back on the car; we still had to drive all the way back to Germany after all. But before we actually got on the way home, we decided to get something to eat and therefore drove around some more. We found a nice restaurant that even had menus in German. They obviously had not been translated by a native speaker. Naive as I am, I ordered a "Frikadelle" and thought I'd get what we in Germany call a "Frikadelle", but I got something that's called "Frikandel" in Dutch. It wasn't too bad, because it was actually quite tasty.
Back on the car, my father grew more frustrated with the traffic signs by the minute, because he couldn't find the right way back. After about an hour's drive my brother had fallen asleep on my shoulder for the second time and my arm had gone numb. The funny thing was that everytime my father had to slow down a bit, my brother twitched, but didn't wake up. He didn't even wake up, when his friend turned our attention to the sign at the side of the road, my father groaned loudly and I started laughing my head off. We had been driving in the wrong direction the whole time and had ended up in Belgium! That cost us more than two extra hours and by the time we arrived at home it was almost 10pm. :p
