2) Seen any of the following "essential"/"classic" american films:

  • Citizen Kane
  • The Godfather (all)
  • Gone with the Wind
  • Lawrence of Arabia
  • On the Waterfront
  • Schindler's List
  • Sunset Blvd.

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
  • Bonnie and Clyde
  • Midnight Cowboy
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • Snatch
  • Pulp Fiction
  • West Side Story
  • A Streetcar Named Desire
  • Rocky
  • Fargo
  • The list goes on...

3.) Attended a higher education institution on a semester system (both of my programs were on a quarter system)

I've never eaten the following items:

- Bacon, sausage, pork, ham, salami, lobster, oysters, crab, shrimp, catfish

Although I'm cheating a little, cause Jews are forbidden to eat those animals :P

 

I've also never visited the following popular tourist destinations:

- Paris, London, Berlin, Cabo San Lucas, Hawaii, Montreal, New York City, New Orleans, Miami, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Rome/Venice, Chicago

I've never...

- had my ears pierced

- took a driver's license test/received my driver's license. (I'm 24)

- been drunk

- flown on a plane at a fairly young age (first flight at 21 years old)

- finished high school (I had to drop out. I have a GED.)

Looking at this list, it may seem like I'm sort of sheltered or something... These things are more due to personal preference, not being rich, and having a chronic illness haha

I've never had blood drawn.

 

I had my fingers pricked every so often at the pediatrician's office because I went to public school, but I've never donated blood or had a doctor have to draw blood.

Hmmm... I feel like maybe I'm less boring than I thought. ;)

 

I've never done the following:

  • gone skydiving
  • backpacked somewhere/anywhere
  • camped for more than one night (aka, nothing other than a slightly rougher version of car camping)
  • read the Harry Potter books or watched the movies (*highfives RunnerGrad*)
  • read/seen Game of Thrones
  • owned an iOS-based device (iPhone,iPad, MacBook, etc.), though I do have a first generation iPod mini whose battery lasts about 20 minutes somewhere...

It seems like you have great knowledge about movies you haven't seen. Are you intentionally not seeing these so you can be a ringer on "Stuff I've Never Done" games? Or are you just holding out in order to have the best weekend movie-athon ever?

-I've never eaten meat or fish - ever. I'm a vegetarian raised by vegetarians and there was never any meat in our house growing up. I don't even know what animal flesh tastes like, and I've never had any desire to try it.

 

-I've never owned or used a smartphone of any make or model. My phone doesn't even have a built-in camera, just a T-9 keypad. 

 

-I've never been anywhere in the USA East of the Rocky Mountains (IMO an airport layover doesn't count), although I have been all over Europe.

1) I've never been skiing.

 

2) Though I'm an adequate chess player, I've never learned how to play checkers. 

 

3) I do not have Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or any other kinds of social media time-sucks apart from Facebook (which I frequently deactivate for intervals no less than six months) and LinkedIn. (I'm not including The Grad Cafe...I think.)

 

4) I've never visited the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, or similar tourist staples in New York City, in spite of having grown up there. 

 

5) My first non-classical music concert was Maroon 5, at 21 years old. 

 

6) I, too, have not seen such popular and culturally significant films as The Godfather (all of them), Pulp Fiction, Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Die Hard (all films), American Beauty, and so on. I hope to change that this summer! 

 

7) I've never (nor will I ever) read the Twilight series or seen the movies. I don't feel guilty about that one.
