What incredible/uncommon deed have you done in this lifetime?

For example, swimming across the English Channel in 12 hours....

Admitted to university at the age of 14....and so on and so forth ..blah blah blah...

Heard Lky was awarded tripos dun know what.. in LLB from Cambridge.
A s s Loong son finished a 3 yr course in 2 yrs.

For me, I did my "A" Levels as a part time candidate and I passed with a full certificate. Some students did it full time and yet fail to get a full certificate.

How about u guys/ gals?????

too many to list and not important to list because in my own opinion good deeds need to be done quietly and unconditionally- without need for admiration or recognition

Carmichael,

I think the OP is a little mixed up. He talks about Good/Uncommon Deeds but then goes to giving examples self aggrandizement. Maybe the OP needs to be a little more specific. or should rephrase his question to match his examples, e.g., increadible/uncommon feats instead of deeds.

I think u muz have failed your school comprehension test. This thread is not abt doing goody goody things. It's abt DOING INCREDIBLE or UNCOMMON THINGS which the rest of the population will find difficulty in doing....

If you look a little more closely at the human condition you will find greatness everywhere.
My own mother gave birth to three children and raised them as a single parent.

Daishonin, i presume you posted this ? I wont go into attacks here but clearly you did not make your post clear - your post here is rather rude-like Carmichael i too did not understand what you were trying to say here-
one moment you post one comment, then another moment your answer is completely different

And that you should be proud of my young man!!!! My mother was also in the same situation and without education, she is my strength and role model.
Don't forget to reward your mum for her devotion

I pulled someone from a burning car once. I didn't think it was that amazing but when I got on the scene there was about 20 people standing around watching. I don't know why they hand't done it already.

As well I have ADD and dyslexia and I never gratuated from highschool (not even close), as well my mom and I were poor and she was single parent; however, when I was 22 I decided to go back to school: I ended up as a deans list student with a BA Honors in Philosophy, a BSc and an MSc in Computer Science and I am doing my PhD at Yale in Evolutionary Biology. It doesn't seem that amazing from my perspective--I just happen to like school now which makes it easy--but my friends love to tell the story, and I like to tell it to people who think they are "too dumb" to do something--you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to it.

Slightly patronizing but thank you.

Well done YF.
I once removed a burnt corps from a wrecked vehicle.
I did'nt think that was too amazing either.

My kind of guy.
I once walked (most of the way)from Port Augusta to Alice springs before the road was sealed.
I did'nt own a car.
