For me my friends bet me that I couldn't play WoW 100 hours in a week. It was only like $50 but I didn't have plans for my spring break so I did it. It really sucked though, because it was during the end of the LK expansion and I didn't have anything to do so I just gathered and mined pretty much the whole time!

What about you guys?

No idea.
Unless it's cool to donate to a different charity every month? It's that really something "totally awesome" or "cool"?
To me it's more like a normal and nice gesture, I think. I dunno.

Also, by charity I don't mean the humble indie bundle-type of things(though those get a lot of my money as well)

I punched a Giant into space, he was headed for the Death Star and never came back down.
What? Skyrim is fun when it's modded

Dance onstage at a New Years Eve concert, maybe? That was pretty cool.

Actually, going to the Whiskey Media Block Party is still probably the coolest thing I've ever done, considering I still brag about that on a regular basis.

Probably giving a social theory lecture to an audience of 200 in a really beautiful church and discussing at length Nietzsche's thesis on the death of God from Die fröhliche Wissenschaft.

Either that or finding the love of my life.

@zeforgotten: You're so beautiful!

I haven't ever done anything cool. Although on Monday I did volunteer at an animal sanctuary where I got to help old sheep with arthritis outside to sit in the sunshine! That was pretty heartwarming. Oh! And I saw the new Iron Man on someday last week! Tony Stark makes everyone cool.

Today, I e-mailed a cover letter and resume to Chiquita headquarters, the banana-company, about a co-op (internship, essentially). They called back this afternoon, I'm going for an interview Tuesday. Keep in mind that I'm a small-town quiet kid, I have always pictured myself being nothing but a small-town quiet man. The potential of being in a big city, working at an international company's headquarters, sounds hard to believe for me.

So, yeah. Coolest thing to happen to me in a while is a phone call to tell me that something cool will soon happen to me, even if I don't get the job I at least got the attention of an interviewer.

I declined a big two-week filming job (realityshow) in Sri Lanka that would have earned me $4000 in favour of keeping a close friend company so that she wouldn't off herself, after she endured a weekend you wouldn't want to see written into words by her then psychopath boyfriend who happened to be the untouchable son of a top local politician.

Three years later she's got a safe life with a trusty dependable husband that even I would put my faith into, a shining future ahead of her, and a little baby girl.

$4000 was almost a third of what I earned a year at the time, the production company had to scrap the entire thing because of this so there were some harsh feelings and bad rap. That's nothing compared to keeping alive and well the woman I loved so much that I had to leave her to somebody else.

It's a matter of perspective. Before that event in my life it was probably speedrunning vanilla WoW as a new server launched and getting the first level 60 - despite going away at level 54 to party in another city the entire weekend.

Hmm, sky diving, bungee jumping, motorcycle riding, mountain climbing, cliff diving, exploring ancient greek ruins, getting costumed up and running rampant at a ball game, literal sex on the beach, white water rafting, hanging from the tallest building in the country, spelunking. Maybe organizing charity events, saving a person's life, volunteering with a variety of organizations, sitting in with a buddhist service in a mountain top temple.

I guess by the metric of this thread I'd have to do with staying awake for 7 days straight once. That was totally cool.

Wow man. You're a good dude.

Mine isn't an accomplishment or anything but last year I popped my music festival cherry at Camp Bisco in upstate New York. It was three days of all sorts of DJ's and electronic music with jam bands and rappers seamlessly woven in between for variety. There were no cops on the premises, security was handled by the Hell's Angels, and they were surprisingly really cool dudes. As long as you didn't start fights they'd let you do whatever the fuck you wanted. It sounds like hyperbole but I can honestly say it was the best weekend of my life. The sense of community I typically get from live shows was multiplied by ten while I was there. I didn't meet a single person I didn't like and the general atmosphere around the festival grounds was irreplaceable anywhere else, which is exactly why I'll be right back there this July.

Probably the first or second time I ever golfed, I sunk an 80 yard chip-in with a 9-iron. Mind you I sucked so bad, it probably took me 10 strokes to get within 80 yards of the hole.

While on a date with a girl I really liked, three skinheads who happened to be loitering by the bus stop started racially abusing me and harassing my date for fraternising with a "half-breed". Since we had to get the bus from this particular stop, I casually gave them the finger and continued chatting to her. Then came the distinct sound of the thighs of tracksuit pants flapping against each other and the leader of the three was suddenly right in my face, sticking his chest out like a peacock. He whispered something along the lines of "Who the fuck do you think you are you little cunt, your kind should be purged." I pushed him back with a little force which in his mind gave full justification for full blown violence.

He hooked me in the neck, right under my ear. I stumbled and regained composure in a couple of seconds while he stood and laughed. Adrenaline rushed through me and before I knew it I was in an all out street fight with the three of them. It was scrappy, dirty and incredibly lucky but I managed hurt them enough for them to retreat. I got hit a lot and probably sustained more damage than I caused in all honesty but regardless, I felt great. My nose and lip were bust, I had a cut on my brow which was seeping blood into my eye and there was a massive bruise on my cheek.

After all was said and done I laid down on the grass for a breather and my date sat next to me, scolding me harshly for fighting. Since we had missed our bus by this point she called her father to come pick us up. When he got there he laughed at my face, shook my hand and called me "Rocky". My date was livid at both of us since she despises violence and didn't find any amusement at all in the situation. We went to her house and her mother gave me some medical attention since she happened to be a nurse, I hugged her and told her I was sorry and that it was some sort of primitive man thing that caused me to defend my honour. Unfortunately, this kind of killed my relationship with her as she now saw me as some kind of thug.

Regardless of the love loss and the injuries, I think this is the most invigorated I've ever felt in my life and even though I'm all liberal and anti-violence, it felt so gratifying to successfully defend my honour. Not saying violence is cool but... Well, yeah violence is pretty cool.

TLDR: Won a fight alone against three skinheads

Promise I'm not trying to one up, but that reminded me when I was a teenager at some dingy little course beside a friends cottage I once got a hole in one. Cool enough right? Nope, So I did my drive, and this particular hole had a big old birch tree with one huge branch hanging halfway out over the fairway right in front of the green, Like I said it wasn't a great course, you wouldn't get something like that at a good one, but damned if my drive didn't come up a bit short, land smack dab on that branch, bounce up and onto the green, and straight in the hole.

Went to Glacier National Park and hiked the High Line trail, then hiked out to Avalanche Lake and caught some fish. Also while my dad and I were hiking to the lake a man with a prosthetic leg passed us...

Also a you Golden Eagle landed on the hood of our truck in Cave Lake State Park, but I did not do that, I just saw that. It was incredible though.

Honestly, (as sad it sounds) getting my degree in Law, and then moving to live in Hong Kong. I really felt this cemented myself as an intellectual, independent individual, and no longer my father's son.

So mine either comes down to cliff diving like 65 feet into ~12 feet of water and not dying, or having the opportunity to enjoy an hour flight in a F-4 Phantom II fighter. That was pretty dope.

Not so much something I've done but an experience I had.

On holiday in South Africa in a National Park driving around in my uncle's car, we were looking out for animals and I spotted a small elephant in the bushes near the side of the road. We watched it for a while until more elephants started appearing and proceeding to cross the road all around us. We were stuck there for about 7 minutes just looking at elephants on all sides, which, although amazing, was also quite terrifying at the time - knowing that if one of them decided to charge there would be no where for us to go and we didn't have a well protected vehicle. I also got to pet young Lions on that trip and one of them bit my jeans which was cool.
