    1 Who is the forum regular who you suspect was most likely to have got their head stuck in the bannisters or similar object in childhood?
    2 Who is the forum regular who you suspect currently has their head stuck through the bannisters because they acted without reading the whole challenge first?

    I nominate myself. But it wasn't my fault.
    I was 13 and had undergone a growth spurt. My head had always fit before!
    Anyway, my sister's gorgeous girlfriend was changing into a bathing suit and I just had to have a peek.

    Lesson learned: Don't put your head where your ass can't follow. 🙂

    Definite spirit of adventure demonstrated. Anybody suggested for answer 1 should wear their nomination as a badge of honour. Reminds me of a medical student I knew years ago who attended the ward round of the most ferocious surgeon in the hospital late whist visibly suffering a hangover. Asked why he said he had been to the medics ball. The surgeon tore a strip off all the other students assembled for not having hangovers - true story!

    Raises hand for #1. Though not a head stuck in a banister (note the "correct" spelling, though there was a "miler" whose last name was spelt the way you spelt the staircase thingy) but a tongue stuck on a metal door knob on a very cold winter's day. I was 6 and very inquisitive.

    There ya go, Stees. This I've seen only the idjut put his tongue on an a metal line pole. Frozen. He did it on a dare. He didn't think it as true that the tongue would get frozen on.

    Another bump of knowledge lol

    As I have often said in these forums, my dad always told me, "Steve, learn something new every day". That day I learned two things the second was I was indeed an idjust. 😲 😉

    I now when one has nothing good to say it is best to say nothing.

    I didn't say I practice this though.

    Raises hand. I was six years old and at a multilevel shopping mall in Hawaii on the fourth floor up. There were crowds of people behind me watching a hula performance in the center court, and I squeezed to the front and stuck my head through the bars of the railing...only I could not get my head back through and no one was listening to my wails for help because they were all engrossed in the performance..

    Childhood trauma.

    So as we learn more of the chess players in this forum the question becomes is there anybody you suspect didn't get their head stuck in railings in their childhood (just normalizing your memory there - once a therapist...).

    Well I was under 10 years old and I stuck my tongue to an iron pole in the winter. I never did it again. My father poured warm water over the area where my tongue was stuck and it was enough that I could pull my tongue off of the iron pole. He told me, I know you will not do that again!

    No even under 10 I was too smart to do something that dumb, but putting my tongue on an iron pole in the winter was pretty dumb just the same!

    In Germany, Gunther Burpus remained wedged in his front-door cat flap for two days because passers-by thought he was a piece of installation art. Mr Burpus, 41, of Bremen, was using the flap because he had mislaid his keys. Unfortunately he was spotted by a group of student pranksters who removed his trousers and pants, painted his bottom bright blue, stuck a daffodil between his buttocks and erected a sign saying ‘Germany Resurgent, an Essay in Street Art. Please give Generously’. Passers-by assumed Mr Burpus’ screams were part of the act and it was only when an old woman complained to the police that he was finally freed. “I kept calling for help,” he said, “but people just said ‘Very good! Very clever!’ and threw coins at me.”

    Now that was a funny story!
