    Who would you like to be/have been ?

    Me - I would have loved to be Neil Armstrong :biggrin:

    To walk on another world ....:biggrin: Wow




    Andrew
     
  2. I'd like to have been someone like John Lennon or Elvis Presley in the early days. Or maybe Keith Richards. Imagine being responsible for shaping rock and pop music as we know it, and just doing it by making it all up as you go along.
    Either that or maybe Juan Manuel Fangio or Stirling Moss.
    But generally I'm pretty happy being me.:biggrin:

  4. I'd also like to have been an engine driver in 1950s Britain. (I'm still a small boy at heart.:biggrin:)
     
  5. wouldn't mind being someone.

  6. Dayvo

    Dayvo Just passin' through

    Being a crew member on Captain Cook's expedition to Australia and making the way into what is now Sydney Harbour!
    No traffic, rubbish, houses, people (except for a welcoming committee of locals), polution etc. If you've been to Sydney you'll know what I mean, and it's as good as it is after 250-ish years of 'civilisation'!

    I like me, as well, which is just as well. :biggrin:

    Tommy Stack riding Red Rum to his 3rd Grand National win in 1977

    or if I'm allowed a fictional character I'd like to be Wendy from 'Peter Pan' or more specifically the 2003 movie version (or at least the version of it that regularly plays out in my head).

    Maybe earlier than the 50s though.

    I'd like to be Alan Tracy. Not only would I get to pilot Thunderbird Three but I'd also get to make out with Tin Tin (the daughter of Karano NOT the Belgian journalist!)

    Didn't know you were that way inclined BigFat... :biggrin: North apparently carried on working as a "stunt butt" even after stopping making those films. He just loved it too much!
