I can hit a golf ball with a 5 iron around 200 yards with my eyes closed.

I once got a hole-in-one in a tournament. I also got hit in the head with a golf ball. 5W on the fly out of the rough over the green... pow. Left a bald spot. I figure I've done all there is to really do in the sport so I don't play anymore.

- I taught Robert Wagner (Number 2 from Austin Powers) how to play roulette at a casino in Mesquite, Nevada.
- I took Shōrin-ryū lessons from a Japanese grand master in Okinawa.

I'm left handed when writing, eating, and shooting pool, but right handed when throwing a baseball, batting, and playing guitar.

I practiced both soccer and swimming at the same time till I was 15, then for some reason I decided to quit everything. I'd finish soccer practice, eat, and then go to swimming practice.

I used to build telescopes as a hobby. Reflector style like this one:

I love softball. Used to play it at very competitive levels, now play just for fun on a Mens team. Our team is aptly named Slow & Lazy and plays every Monday night. My brother and a bunch of good guys play on the team, so it's a bit of a social outing too.

My daughter has been coming to games since she was four months old and now has a hell of a good lefty swing on her.

As the OP, I'll start.

I end each night by watching an episode of Storage Wars. I have 25 episodes at any given time on my TiVo.
Just got into Storage Wars a couple of weeks ago when I was traveling and nothing was on tv. I love that show now.

I have a room in my house that is dedicated completely to all out my collectibles that I have made shelves for and hung up on my walls.

I've got a 3 year-old sister that I'm so attached to. When I take her out and people comment how cute my "daughter" is I don't correct them. ;)

I can sky dive off the highest building using just a bed sheet as the parachute and land safely with a glass of water in between my legs which is still full.

I spent my junior year and half of senior year of high school in Caracas, Venezuela. I was at a school that was almost all ex-pats - about equally divided between Americans and Europeans, and some Venezuelans as well. It was excellent. Not so excellent was spending the last half of senior year in Miami and basically not knowing a soul at school ir in Miami as a whole.
