  • I Don't Want To Be The First

    Have you ever thought about being the first to try something that no one else has done. Sounds cool (if it's not a bad thing:nono, but just imagine the trial and ERROR involved before getting it right, so that others can do it with relative ease, in most cases.

    To start things, I am very glad that I wasn't the first adventurer who sought out a new land to live in, like where I live now (up here in the often cold/sometimes misquito laden part of Canada). Imagine coming here with ideas that the place was warm and there were few bugs? It's bad enough that you didn't have all the other amenities, and as if your first statement was "okay lets go to the mall and then find a nice hotel to stay at.....

    Okay, you got the deal.

    I would not want to have been the first to try flying......."what's that you say, one mistake is all you get"

    Or the first to have a root canal.... (make that almost any kind of experimental dental work)

    Or the first to have contact lenses....get those big things out of my eyes!!!

    Or the first to go bungee-jumping ("did someone tighten the dang rope!!!")

    Or the first to be "opened up" by some medical pioneer....."maybe we should rethink this thing......for a few years!!!"

    Or the first to ever ride a big roller coaster

    Or the first to have a "routine" prostrate examination...."what you doing doctor???"

    Or the first crash test dummy..........I would do the one that involved the music.....(okay, I know, why would a human do the other thing....I'm warped a bit)

    Or the first to have any type of eye surgery......(probably as a result of being the first to wear those big contact lenses)

    Or the first to start this stupid thread.........


    (On the reverse side, I would love to have been the first to become filthy rich, etc. etc.)

    In a class the other day, we were talking about the first method of research and design: Trial and Error.

    The Germans were trying to invent a plastic, and basically what they did was walk down a line, and just toss in chemicals and substances, and then heated them together.

    Needless to say, this way had a very high attrition rate, and yielded few results.

      Hopefully they weren't also testing it as some form of chlorine, and jumping in......

              very important invention!!!


              You know what's really funny....... the dude who was not the original inventor, but one who improved the flush toilet is named none other than

              Sir Thomas Crapper


              ....this is from the wik "Although he was not the original inventor, Crapper popularized the siphon system for emptying the tank, replacing the earlier floating valve system which was prone to leaks"

                        Like it........thought about the first poor soul to eat Spam!!!!

                        Being first for any "up in the sky" tricks is all on my list....everyone. Can you imagine the taser/stun gun stuff......it's only okay if someone else tells you you it will only last for so long, but not if you're the first!!!!

                            Be the first Bronco to eat Milk Duds in the Broncos Locker room....

                            They weren't Milk Duds, they were actually chocolate covered moose turds.

                            Tell me which Bronco pulled that trick on his teammates in the early 80s for CP...

                            I don't want to be the first person to steal Jake N Bake's doggy.

                            I don't want to be the first person to stick my tongue on a flag pole.

                            I don't want to be the first person to go to the moon. (What if they miscalculated the fuel needs)

                            I don't want to be the first person to try out any of the "non-lethal" police bullets.

                            I don't want to see if sulfuric acid really burns.

                            I don't want to be the one to see if snake bite anti venom works?
