This is a question Question of the Week suggestions

Each week we ask a question. The idea is to generate material that's:

* interesting to read, i.e. we won't get bored of reading the answers after about 10 of them
* not been asked on this site before
* fun to answer

What would you like to ask? (We've left this question open - so feel free to drop in ideas anytime.)

When sports go bad
Come on, B3ta mods! This must be the tenth time this has been suggested by various people. Not every internet user spends their wa(n)king moments hunched over a screen until every muscle in their body atrophies except for two fingers.

Tell us about the times it's gone terribly, terribly wrong.

At my school, when you'd done something cool or impressive
after telling your peers what you'd achieved you'd cough slightly and straighten your tie.

Invariably this would start a round of oneupmanship, which meant the action developed quickly into jumping in the air screaming "HEYAAAAAH!" at the top, landing bent-legged, stamping around the room and adjusting an absolutely enormous, imaginary tie knot, which came down to one's knees and required both hands to "adjust". The result was incredibly ape-like in appearance, and became an entertainment in it's own right, often overshadowing the boast of the original story.

When I met Joe Scaramanga, I quickly forgot that we weren't actually at school together, and thus when I scored one evening with a girl, he was somewhat bemused the following morning as I told him, while performing this action all around the kitchen.

What ridiculous behaviour or rituals did you perform at school for want of more satisfactory mental stimulation?

EDIT: And no I don't fucking mean "Tell us about what an OCD tossbag you are."

I really should have been arrested
I woke up at 2pm on October 13th, 2011, unable to move either of my thumbs and aching all over. When I remembered why (and later that week, when my friend filled in a few gaps), it dawned on me that I really should have woken up in a cell.

When have you escaped?

Body Mods
I once met a man with silicon implants around the outside of his eyes, making him look a bit like an unemployed Cardassian.

What wierd, wonderful and worrying modifications have you encountered in the past, either on other people's bodies or your own.

Famous people we've either slept with, or 'a friend' has.
A mate of mine was working on the crew of a movie called 'Blue Juice.'

It was Catherine Zeta Jones' last movie in the UK before she got all big.

Everyone on the crew wanted a crack. And they all gave it a go.

She turned them all down.

My mate, a heavily tattooed Leeds fan (but quite a looker) decided to completely ignore her for the duration of the shoot.

It worked.

She asked him to accompany her to London. He kept up the game by refusing, saying that he was watching a Leeds game at the weekend.

At the time of the wrap party, the pissed crew were still going for her.

He was smashed by this point.

She went over when the slow dance started and pulled him onto the dance floor.

And then he did two things that he still maintains were the two stupidest things he's ever done.

The first was to squeeze her arse.

When she pulled back with a slightly alarmed expression he said.

"You love it."

Dull celebrity anecdotes
I saw Peter Phillips, out of Princess Anne's womb, resignedly pushing a shopping trolley around Waitrose in Cirencester with a look of intense boredom on his face while his American wife and their toddler chose breakfast cereal. I was with my girlfriend and was also listlessly pushing a trolley around while she shopped.

He caught my gaze, and we exchanged "women, eh?" glances and small shrugs as we passed one another.

I also once sat next to Jim Broadbent while he leafed through a copy of Metro while listening to what sounded like Motown classics on small black earbud headphones, while he was waiting for a connecting Tube train at Acton Town station.

What mundane or routine activities have you seen people off the telly doing?

Messing with peoples heads.
What have you done to fuck with people? Was it a long, carefully planned piece of psychological warfare, or do you favour quick, off-the-cuff comments that confuse the terminally gullible?
Do you prefer funny things that you can laugh about down the pub or maliciousness that you should probably be ashamed of?
Have you been dicked with, and only realised many years later? Are you being dicked right now?

Reading through some of the archived questions
and the 'onosecond' was quite good; that moment when an email or text message goes wrong. Was done in about 2006 I think, so could we do this again?

My workmate sent me an email asking what my meeting with the HR manager was about. I replied with, "She asked me to suck oysters from her twat".
He then went to forward this to another work colleague, who'd appreciate the comment.
He sent it to the HR manager by mistake - I was oblivious all of this was going on. Hilarity ensued.....

Grandparenty stuff your grandparents do.
Last Christmas my Grandad bought birthday cards for each of his relatives fronted with such messages as "Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Grandson," or "To My Niece on Her Birthday" and handed them all out on Christmas day.

We were watching the football the other day and a replay of a goal came up with the minutes scored in the bottom corner. He kept repeatedly asking what player "minge" was but vaguely pulling his punch at the end of the word, possibly sensing it might be rude. Turns out he's just misread 'minutes' in the bottom left corner.

What other grandparenty shit have your grandparents done?
