Rules:

1. Answer the question asked in the above post. A simple yes or no is fine, or you could go into greater details.

2. Ask your own question starting with "Have you ever" (preferably something you have done). The questions can be about anything.

I'll start...

Have you ever been to Hawaii?

Yup. About 19 yrs ago. Maui and Oahu on a 10+ day vacation after I graduated from college. Absolutely fantastic and would love to go back one day.

Have you ever watched a real live rocket launch (Proper NASA/Ariane type) ?

Yes, I have. With the addition of some gibberellins the plants were more red(with fruit) than green,
I've done lots of work at great heights. Have you ever worked where one mistake could kill you?

Yes, I spent a lot of time in Rome, NY. For someone who grew up in Florida, spending an entire January in Upstate New York was quite an experience. The hightemperature the entire time was 12 degrees (F). I think it got down to -12 one evening. The locals remarked that they hadn't had much snow that year - it was only four feet deep.

Have you ever watched a moonbeam as it slithers across a window pane?

No.

Have you ever gotten stung by a wasp while driving in the fast lane on the freeway with the window down and your arm out the window?

Happened to me, but it didn't hurt at all because the wasp stung me at the exact moment I flung it off my arm and out the window.

I got my first car with a manual 4 speed transmission in 1969.

A Chevy Camaro Z-28.

I didn't get an automatic transmission vehicle until 2003.

Have you ever gone whitewater rafting?
