… that I haven't done, but believe you haven't either.

  1. Said Non Placet in the Senate House.

  2. Done the Three Peaks Challenge

  3. Visited every member state of the EU

  4. Been in space

  5. Stood for Parliament

  6. Driven a train in service

  7. Laid a foundation stone

  8. Won any kind of competition with more than 1000 entrants

  9. Appeared on screen in an internationally distributed film

  10. Met the President of the United States of America


(Yes, these are of different likelyhoods, but none of them are entirely implausible)

I don't know how many people entered the Star Trek Fanclub Magazine crossword competition when I won it, actually. But the fact that I did win does suggest it was not many. :D

Does 1 have to be said officially? :)

8 doesn't sound so implausible depending on your definitions, for instance most of the BMO winners go to Trinity, and that has oodles of entrants.

Done 8 & 9.

8:
I won national schools essay prizes in 1974 & 77, the HNC prize in 1990, and have won a couple of poetry and short story contests with 1000+ entries.

9:
No, not LotR, which is almost an achievement in itself, since it often feels like everyone in the country pops up somwhere, This one I was very small. Even my mother doesn't know which small child at the market I was.

The BIO had, allegedly, a little over a thousand entrants on each of the years in which I won it.
