I'm with you on these three. I had to think about the Chevrolet thing. I've definitely never owned one. I've driven a number of Buick's (and currently own a '64 Wildcat) but I think that's the only GM vehicle.
"I still regard Jesus Christ today as the chief focus of my perspective on God but not to the exclusion of other religious perspectives. God's reality is not bound by one manifestation of the divine in Jesus but can be found wherever people are being empowered to fight for freedom. Life-giving power for the poor and the oppressed is the primary criterion that we must use to judge the adequacy of our theology, not abstract concepts."
...traveled across the ocean to other countries. ...been scuba diving. Living in a desert and a great fear of water so would likely panic in the ocean! ...had a green enough thumb to keeping any flowers or plants alive. ...flown in a helicopter. Been in planes as a child but never as an adult. ...broken any body parts (arms/legs) or bones. ...picked up a hitch-hiker. ...hit it big playing slot machines at a Casino. Most ever won was $70 and turned around and spent it buying lunch and drinks for me and my parents while there at the casino. ...ever won the lottery. ...ever owned/purchased a totally new car (as in brand new off the lot in the current year, only ever 2-3 years older cars). ...ever owned my own home. Rented apartments and last 30 years have rented from my uncle.

Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!
...watched a porno (s'true! I've no idea if they do get married at the end);
...watched an episode of Buffy, or Batman: the animated series, Star Wars: rebels or Clone wars nor of Dr. Who (although I did see the movie with Peter Cushing);
...drunk Jack Daniel's;
...driven a Chevrolet;
...visited New York City;
...been to a graduation party.
Me neither for a bunch of these.
I did watch and enjoy Batman:TAS with my kids years ago; drank JD once... I was 16 and the experience disabused me of ever trying it again... I'll stick to whiskey, vodka, beer, wine and Scotch, thanks; been to NYC plenty of times (I grew up a half-hour away); have been to a batch of grad parties, too. Oh, and I've seen Dr. Who, but only three episodes (Weeping Angels, a Shakespeare one, and the Van Gogh episode).
We've only owned an American car twice: the two soccer vans we had when the kids were little. They both were a pain in the asafoetida. Otherwise, it's been German or Japanese... and all stick-shifts for nearly 50 years.
