Ok I stole this topic from another forum but it was hysterical! Some really deep answers to silly ones. I'll start:

- a game of monopoly (once was enough)

-a perm in my hair back in the 80s

Have you tried Toxic Waste candy, Jrazz? My son keeps trying to torture me with those. I've had them on three separate occasions, and have somehow been able to manage to keep a straight face. Not easy!

Had to pop back in to add acorn squash to the list.

Accidentally rubbing habanero juice in my eye is something I hope to avoid again in the future, too.

Jo, I make the same face when I eat those. Not as cute as Babyrazz, but still a very silly face!

Skiing is the only thing I can come up with. Tried it when I was 14 years old and it didn't work out very well. My brother got all the adventurous genes in our family.

turtle steak - truly nasty

sailing on a small catamaran - scared the crap out of me

skiing a black diamond run - didn't read the map, followed my X and friends -"you can just snow plow all the way, it will be okay" - LIES. I ended up taking my skis off and wading through the snow to the bottom.

winter camping - stupidest idea ever.

Cross country skiing. Once was in fact one time too many. Too many of my least favorite things combined. Cold, snow and exercise. WTF kind of torture is that????

Mayonnaise- I know many love it but I can't stand it

Mustard- see above

Tobasco sauce- I was watching tv during dinner when I was 12 and my sppon was just being held in the air with rice. My dad took the opportunity to sprinkle a generous amount of tobasco sauce on my rice while my head was turned. It was spit out across yhe table and I have never touched it again.

I will never pull a plastic pitcher out of the fridge and drink straight from it again. It was slightly yellow and I thought it was lemonade. It was homemade chicken stock my mother had put in a pitcher . Serves me right for drinking from the pitcher but I was 7 so I get a pass

1. octopus. yuck. But I love calamari.
2. trying to ride my bike with my arms crossed. Face plant. Enough said.
3. Driving up the side of an Alp after having 2 of the the Hof Brau Haus Christmas weizen. With a tour bus doing 200 miles per hour coming in the opposite direction. No guard rails. Again, enough said.
4. Snow saucer riding. It turned backwards and I hit my best friend's tree house right in the middle of my spine. At approximately 200 miles per hour like the tour bus. Did I mention, enough said?

Mine is para-sailing (that's what it's called when you sit in the little harness thing behind the boat and they drag you, like, 10,000ft above the water, right??) Yea. Hell no. NEVER doing that again.

Hell, yes. Bring it on. Parasailing is of my fave things.

However, I tried Arby's once (not my idea) and I won't do that again.

I'm pretty adventurous both food-wise (some of the things I ate in SE Asia, oy!!!!) and activity-wise, so I had to search my brain for things I wouldn't eat or do.
