That is horrible, sir!
I passed a test on Orwell's 1984 once without actually reading the book.
Maybe Push was a too stronger word, more like 'your mum's calling you'...
Wow, without reading?
I once passed my self as 12 when I was 15 to get a cheaper cinema ticket. Such a villian.
Fair enough. ;-)
And yes, I assembled clues left and right from hearing classmates talk about the book. And then, of course, there are all those cultural references made in films and such. I put things together and kept my answers just vague enough to convince the teacher that I knew exactly what I was talking about without exposing myself as a fraud. ;-)
About the cinema ticket, I pulled a trick like that too once. I wanted to take a girl from my group of friends to see a horror flick with me. I was 16 (i.e., the required minimum age) but she was only 15 at the time. And yes, they were checking the ID's of us, teens, at the time. So I lied about being accompanied by my dad who was supposedly buying us some snacks at the concession stand. It worked; I got two tickets. But before entering the actual theatre, they were checking our ID's again. Here's the funny thing. My friend was taller than me and they let her pass just like that, whereas I, the only one of us actually 16 at the time, had to show my ID one more time. ;-) Anyway, it worked out fine and we got to watch EVENT HORIZON. Perfect crime... and an ounce of luck.

Thanks. I'm ordering very important stuff (or at least expensive) right now...wait...I'm very interested in numbers on credit cards. Always was, fascinating stuff.so here's the question: could you tell us the other numbers on the card, too? The date for example...
Do you have that three digit number on the back as well? Oh, and the expiry date? Thanks. :)
It all reminds me of these:
I once passed a history exam by writing an essay about civil defence on the Home Front...basing my answer entirely on Dad's Army.
Who ever claimed TV can't be educational? 😉
Here's my little secret.
Having always been particular in the picture quality of the films I watch, I have a firm belief that one's television set should be calibrated properly. This isn't so much an issue today with high definition widescreen TV's. But during the long era of 4:3 tube televisions, I often found it a problem.
One would go over to a buddy's house for a movie night and the flesh tones would look too pinkish, too greenish, too orangy, too bluish, etc. Most of the time the owners of that set wouldn't notice how bad their TVs looked.
So I made it a habit of secretly re-adjusting their picture whenever they left the room to get a snack, or drink. When they came back Bond would look like Bond (rather than looking like The Hulk).
To this day I'm still not ashamed of this secret.
You're my hero!
That was before you had your brain surgery, @Thunderfinger.
The transplant, you mean? Thank you!
You mean right now.
Do you fly round the stage like a lizard and that?
I wish! I'm a normal lizard. The second stage is a flying lizard. Hopefully soon! I mean, I don't know what you are on about. Shut up!
I'm secretly David Icke, and I always knew you were a lizard.
How nice to meet you. I'm one of these flying lizards that you get now. Lizards of the World Unite!
Just watch this video and hopefully all will become clear:
