I like your style, especially the american comment(who wouldn't but an american,lets face it?) Maybe the horses penis was why it was selected as a 'cover shot', just everyone else lacks the imagination to see such phalicies?

1: TutTut Spongefreak, at least my projectiles were biodegradable….. although I guess everything is biodegradable given a long enough time span, so its all relative (turn your laptop off for 2 hours to offset your carbon emissions as penance) ……..2: IrishSurfChick, if you look anything like your profile it probably wasn’t spit :-o …….3: SurfChef, surfing vomit, CLASSIC. But it being a school trip you were probably pissed out of your heads before you left Dover….4: Spongerdudette….where does a mug of Bovril sit on your adventure-o-meter? I’m guessing its rests somewhere between a mojito and a nesquick shake?…small steps people…small steps

HEY VP. I started reading your little account there and was full of high hopes. I thought to myself VP is going to be adventurous and walk on the wild side. But no, the hopes came tumbling down when I seen that 3 lettered word TEA. Maybe this is what happens when you are a life long member of the Jam and Jeruselem bridgade. Go on VP be daring have a hot chocolate for a change... go on.... be daring... live dangerously..coz you know that you want to.

I went on a school trip to France and we had a very rough crossing. People were throwing up everywhere. My mate threw up off the side of ferry and I watched, highly amused as the sick surfed the air currents only to suddenly turn back inwards hitting my other mate right in the mouth...of course, you can guess what happened next...

When on a visit to Inis Mor, myself and a friend were lying down peering over the cliffs of Dun Aengus (a sheer 300 ft cliff down to the atlantic ocean), my friend spat over the edge, god only knows why, but about 10 seconds later it hit me in the face!! I was so surprised, if it had happened straight away it would have just been disgusting instead of being so funny. Was it karma that guided it back to me?

VP, thought you might like to hear of a tale from when I was a wee laddie back in the homeland of SE Cornwall. My friends and I were roaming the clifftops and came across a dismantled chalet roof, plenty of sheets of corrugated iron. With a howling onshore wind prevailing we came across the great idea of pushing a sheet over the cliff edge and seeing how far we dare walk out on it. As you can imagine the results were rather varied, most sheets just fell over the edge to find a new home at a lower altitude but a select few did manage to take flight and soar spinning over our heads. Thankfully there were no injuries and none of us managed to test how far we could have walked the plank. Later in life I discovered the much safer pass-time of 'kicking the can', choose simelar circumstance to above and place an empty drinks can at the edge of the cliff, step back and give it a good kick seawards, at this point being ready to duck is advisable as the can will invariably return in your direction erratically, also I don't advise taking a long run up for your kick as you might discover what strength wind you'd need to send you back over the cliff edge...or not!

Visiting friends in Stavanger a few years back, I went for a hike by one of the fjords, trundled up this mountain that has a huge vertical 600metre cliff wall, very famous spot in Norway. Crawled over to the edge for an insane view while eating my sandwich (rubbery Jarslberg cheese sandwich if memory serves: Norwegian ‘delicacy’) I accidentally dropped one of my sandwiches over the cliff and watched it fall to its death. Fearing for the safety of my flask of tea (yes Spongerdudette TEA!) I finished off the rest of lunch a bit further away from the edge. About 10 minutes later the insane updrafts that are generated by the vertical wall sent my sandwich back up the cliff face and over my head and disappeared well behind me. Flippin nuts, it must have been hovering around surfing in the thermals for ages! If anyone else has any stories of aerodynamically sound lunch items or photos of surfing/base jumping sandwiches please upload them. However, in hindsight Jarslberg is so rubbery it probably hit the deck and bounced back. Norway: nice scenary/lovely people/crappy cheese.
