Okay...The stupidest U2-related thing you have EVER done!!!

Okay... To celebrate my 150th post - uhh, just love it when I reach another PLEBA-posting-milestone - let's have some confessions! What is the stupidest U2-related thing you've EVER done? I've done something pretty stupid myself - let's see if you can beat that - just have to scan a pic that can explain how stupid I was... Will be back later!

Hmm, let me think... I don't think anything I ever did is stupid but I will name some..extreme worshipping I did.



I got a mullet. Yeah, Baby Bono mullet. Summer 2001 and till now I just had mullets alough now it's a Ziggy mullet.

All my school folders ae full of Bono pics, Bono in drag or licking Larry or VP pics and Gav in dresses. Everbody in school thinks I'm weird and gross.

Hmmmmm, okay can't think of anything to beat my mullets.

Oh, and I travelled a long wa down to Munich to meet with an Internet pal (huge U2 fan) and made my parents get up at 7am to drive me down there.

They're still a little angry about the way I woke them up to drive me. :hifty:

Allright - I'm back...

...Okay - I might as well drop the bomb right away! I trew this R&H-poster out, once I was cleaning up in our ymca-club!!!





You know, it's the long poster with Bono at the top, then Edge, Larry and Adam at the bottom... Till this day I can't believe I just trew it out! But at that time I didn't knew who was on the poster, and I thought they looked kind of silly and really had the 80's look - and everything from the 80's just had to go when we were cleaning up!!!

Cool thread!
Well when I was 16 I died my hair black like Bonos
But I think the stupidest U2 thing I have ever done was at the Oakland Elevation show 3rd leg... I had my camera with me and the security told me when I got up to the door to get in after 12 hours in line... that I couldnt take the camera in .... so I stood there for a sec in awe and told them that I absolutely would not go back to my car after waiting 12 hours and I had just been in LA where they allowed cameras and that U2 said we could have cameras... they would not budge... so when this giant security guy looked away....I started running like a damn fool trying to escape the security! It was like I was crazed for a minute!! So I am running down the ramp to the door and all of a sudden I am being lifted off the ground and the big guy was taking me out up to the top again!! I was screaming and my legs were kicking like a little kid and then he had me against this wall telling the other security that I wasnt going to be let in!!!! So I started crying slightly and my friend explained that I would literally die if this really happened to me and then I told the security to just take my damn camera and they let me in
But it was pretty stupid to try to run from security!
All in the name of U2 lol ......

Hmmmmmm let's see............the most stupidist thing that I've done is not going to see Bono when he was in NY giving the lecture. That was my first chance of meeting him and I completely blew it, the effects that nite : total depression. Ever since that nite, I've made a promise to myself to not miss any chances again!

In Atlanta, after realizing that Bono had forgotten the dude pen and souly's note at his table, I grabbed them and tried to run after him to give them back.

It gets worse

He went off the stage through a back door, so myself and another guy (sorry I don't remember your name if you're reading this ) got through the back door and tried to catch up, but I guess it was a kitchen, because security started to push food trays in our way as we called after Bono (by that time he was way ahead of us, out of sight even, so I don't think he heard us, at least I hope he didn't )

I'm completely embarassed by my behavior now. I was thinking today, what if he had heard us and came back, what the heck would I have said. I would have been completely mortified I'm still not to happy with myself

but at least Emilie did get the items to Bono eventually

stupidist U2 realated thing i've done, everyone should get a good laugh out of this: we had this project in biology where we had to each take home a plant and alter one type of thing while growing it and see what happened anyways one of my friends figgured we should name the plants instead of just calling them plant 1, 2, 3 and 4 like everyone else did in their lab reports so we named the plants after the members of U2. our teacher thought we were the strangest group of kids she'd ever taught

Before I knew who U2 was, which wasnt too long ago, I dissed what they looked like, I was telling one of my friends taht they looked gay and their clothes were gay, cause I love the 70s look on men. And now I feel really bad that i said all that stuff...

I snuck into soundcheck at Elevation DC Me and this other lady just walked right up the shut down escalator and through a door and there were were in the first rung of seats watching Dallas Schoo and the roadies setting up! We planned to lay down in the seats and wait until the band came in then run down for autographs. But we had to tell the people we came with. She left the door open for me until I got back with them, plus some unknown girl who followed. Then the lady who let me in vanished, and next thing I know a security guard caught us! He asked for our tickets so he could tear them up but we (lied) and said they weren' t with us. He called for his boss and we explained someone left a door open and it wasn't like we broke in, so he let us go! I was still scared he was going to get me. He saw me coming down the steps to get my GA bracelet and he said "HEY YOU" and I was terrified! Then he smiled and said, "you are lucky to be here" and I said "Thank you!" and ran for my life! I got a great spot second person from the tip of the heart and Bono smiled at me, yes just me, and my sign me. I'd hate to think I'd have missed that, or the show!

This almost happened to me, but luckily, didn't.
I was at one of the Elevation shows waiting in line with my sister. It was a couple of hours before wristbands for the floor were going to be passed out, so me and another girl went around to the back of the arena to see if we could catch them coming in. I didn't realize how long I had been back there and I missed the wristbands being passed out. My sister comes running up to me, and we got the security to give me a wristband.

(on top of that, my parents thought someone kidnapped me,because I was gone for so long, and sent security out looking for me........ )
