Back in the early 70's, I lived on a tropical Island. I was about 10. The island was about 1/2 mile wide and 3 miles long (Kwajalein). No TV. Very few cars (my dad on a bike cracked me up). Food was shipped in (literally... it came on a ship), so there wasn't much fresh food. You got used to canned food, condensed milk, etc. Native food was fresh though... coconuts you could get right from the tree (if you were willing to climb it), breadfruit, etc.
It was a US trust territory and a missile launch site. About once a month they tested a rocket launch, and everybody had to be ready to save all breakables because the island would shake so bad from the liftoff. China, cups, saucers... anything on a shelf could crash to the floor. Mostly the missiles were interceptor missiles, so fast was key. I saw a rocket go from launch straight up until it was out of sight in about 5 seconds. Scary fast.
Our scout troop volunteered to clean up Alcatraz for a weekend. In return, we got a VIP behind the scenes tour of Alcatraz at night. Got to walk on the catwalks, and went on the roof of the prison. The best part was we got to spend the night in the isolation ward. My buddy and I asked the park ranger which cell was Al Capone's. I have slept in the same prison cell as Al Capone.
I've traveled more miles in an elevator than most people. For 12 years I worked on 110th floor of 2WTC. That's nearly a mile per day of elevator ride.
Wore an EOD (bomb tech) suit. Shit has air conditioning in it!
Been to japan to represent australia in a hockey tournament
Ended up having my first seizure in sophomore year of high school and pissed myself at a desk, was reading Julius Caesar,

Let someone into my lane during rush hour
Delayed a flight for two hours due to insulin shock. That was fun.
Played the magnificent organ at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Paris.
Private chopper ride over the Himalayas for free. Flew in a chopper (alone + pilot) from (almost) Everest Base camp to Kathmandu. I got altitude sickness and had to be airlifted, fortunately/unfortunately I got better as soon as we touched down at Lukla.
Edit - chopper, not chopped
I tandem peed with a girl where she sat on the toilet with her legs spread, and I sort of sat on her lap and put my dick between her legs to pee at the same time. We just wanted to see if we could.
I met the girl when I was finishing up hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, actually, but I'm less proud of that.
I attended a state dinner as the guest of a U.S. ambassador. It sounds fancy, but it was really just a 4th of July cookout at the U.S. embassy in Malawi and every U.S. citizen in the country had an open invitation to attend. It was nice to eat a real hamburger though.
Opened the door for the Dali Lama and shook his hand . I was a paramedic at Chicago's Art Institute and there was a religious conference in one of the halls . I just happened to walk up to the East entrance when he pulled up with his entourage . I opened the door , he stopped and shook my hand . I'm 100% atheist , but you could feel his presence . That was about 25/26 years ago .
Jerked off hundreds of feet under water.
There's a mural of famous artists born in Bronzeville and the largest figure on the mural is R. Kelly. I pissed all over him, and if I'm the only one then it's my life's greatest achievement.
Hopped on a freight train across the USA.
