This is a fun game where you share things that you have never done that most people have done.

I have never used any social media websites like FaceBook or Twitter
I have never taken a "selfie"
I have never driven at 100mph (despite driving on track)
I have never broken any bones
I have never had a hangover
I have never smoked or tried drugs

Feel free to post more than once if you happen to think of more things!!

    Some interesting answers everyone :)

    @Adrian_Scope never eaten black pudding :o it tastes like a really meaty burger, if you can get over what it's made from you might like it, it doesn't taste like blood at all!

    @Hart86 never eaten brie, you don't know what you are missing hehehe but maybe good for your health that you don't! :smiley:

    @Woodbine never had long hair that's a good one. That makes me think of another one which is that I have never had a beard due to OCD - always clean shaven!!

    @Ails your last one is very surprising!!  :o:o I also share your entry of never watched Game of Thrones!!

    I’m not actually put off the idea of it. It doesn’t bother me at all, but it’s just one of those things that’s never happened. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever even seen one on a menu.

    I can send you black pudding any time you want to try it, @Adrian_Scope, lol!  You can even buy it in tins up here.  :smiley:  I've never tried it myself, but my hubby and dad love it!  :smile:

    @Adrian_Scope ahh I see, that makes sense. :) It is often a standard item in a full English breakfast, if you ever go out for something to eat in the morning. I don't think I have seen it on a menu anywhere other than at breakfast time, either!
  • AilsAils Community champion Posts: 2,160 Disability Gamechanger
    My friend from the Midlands used to take black pudding, square sausage and plain bread back home with her whenever she would visit me as she couldn't buy it down there.  :smile:

    @66Mustang: I think it’s just something we don’t really do here. Never seen it served in a cafe or anything. 

    I guess my new post-lockdown goal is to track one down! 

    @Ails: In tins!? That would be one of the stranger things I’ve received in the post.

    Where abouts are you based out of curiosity, @Adrian_Scope?
  • Adrian_ScopeAdrian_Scope Administrator Posts: 6,381 Scope community team
    Essex. But I know plenty of folks here who eat it regularly. So where are they getting it!?

    I’m becoming convinced there’s some sort of black pudding conspiracy that I’ve been cruelly excluded from.

    Mind you, I don’t tend to get out for breakfast anymore, so who knows? Maybe everybody here eats them all before 9am and then secrets the tins away before I’ve had a chance to see. Or maybe I’m just that unobservant!

    Anyway...

    Never have I ever seen Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction.

    The best place to buy black pudding is Bury market.

    Wow some interesting ones there, @OverlyAnxious. That is quite a good one to never have taken any pills. Well, maybe not "good" per se but quite impressive in its own way. :D

    Some really interesting answers in here. Trying to work out what the opposite version of the game could be?

    I guess something like "surprising things you have done"? Things people have done in their life that they would not have been expected to have done?

    I wouldn't do too well at that, I haven't done many crazy things!!

    Maybe it could even be personal to each person i.e. if someone has a certain disability but despite that they have done something that for most people would not be a huge thing. i.e. someone who has managed to walk 100 yards, or driven a car, or gone into a shop on their own, may be a really big achievement and come as a surprise :)

    Yes, @Adrian_Scope, yes black pudding in a tin.  My mum used to buy it for my dad.  I know it sounds strange!  I will ask her where she bought it from.  I can only imagine it would be vile!  Yuck!!  :smiley:
