John Derbyshire of “National Review”, (am I safe in assuming that I am in the minority as a UU blogger who reads National Review?), reports on a game they’re playing at the London Daily Telegraph in which you confess to things you have never done. Quoting John, “The trick is that the things you confess to never having done are things that — and this is of course highly life-context-dependent — you ought to have done, or feel you ought to have; or things of which the omission is surprising in some other way — e.g. lived your whole life in London but never seen the Thames. Things that hardly anyone does (“never been on safari”) don’t count.”
Ok... I have never:

Gone to a bar, unless invited to meet someone there.
Done “Trick or Treat for UNICEF”
Successfully pulled a tune out of a musical instrument.
Successfully negotiated a dance without incident.
Attempted to ski (snow or water) or surf. Or managed to swim without looking like a paddlewheel boat.
Gone two weeks without chocolate.
Gotten all Christmas or birthday cards out on time in any year.
Voted Democrat for President.
Sent a text message, or used any cell phone feature other than making a telephone call.

Saved anything, music or data, onto a CD.
What have you never?
