    I know most of you will say something like "theres nothing special about them" but SOMEBODY has to have something cool or weird.

    I have 4 cousins on my dads side (all brothers) whose names are Jordan, Justin, Jared, then randomly Aaron :lol  Another cousin on that side who is 18 but looks 12.

    On my mom's side, I have an uncle who has shrapnel in his leg, a cousin that is 6' 5", a cousin that was adopted, and a little cousin who farts in his sleep. Sad part is they all hate me :/

    My family is not so interesting.

    Well, my grandpa from my mom's side of the family is a Korean War veteran. Other than that, my family is just so ordinary.

    My Grandmother was the first hispanic nurse to work at Wilford Hall (military hospital)

    My dad and mom met through his sister, who was my mom's babysitter, which was hired by my grandmother.

    My uncle owns a 67 mustang fastback, a 05 Bullitt edition mustang, and has paid for his vehicles with cash.

    My aunt met Dennis Quiad for the premiere of "The Alamo"; I tried out to be an extra in the same movie

    -My mom claims one of her friends dated the Nightstalker.
    -My mom claims her mom knows the guy who invented nachos.
    -My mom claims her dad was stabbed, although I don't know if that means he was stabbed to death.
    -I'm part Italian from my mother's side.
    -I have a half-brother with AIDS, who happens to be my mom's first child.
    -I have a really wealthy uncle who became as crazy as a Scientologist when his wealth went to his head.
    -I have cousins who are half-black.
    -I have cousins who are half-white.
    -In both instances, their mothers are my mom's sisters.
    -The same uncle who is a nutball worked in China for a long time. When he was there, he heard mention of some taboo book about some kind of spiritual nonsense. He wanted to know more about it, but the Chinese people he asked about it were very reluctant to say anything.
    -That same uncle used my dad's shop and tools to build a wooden pyramid about 5 feet tall, so that he could get inside it and meditate.
    -I have a cousin, who happens to be the son of my nutball uncle, who worked at EA (the videogame company).
    -I have an uncle who worked at NASA.

    -My father was drafted in the late 60's for Vietnam. He was stationed in Germany when he started developing back problems and was discharged for medical reasons. His troop was sent to Saigon about a month later and wiped out. We found out about 15 years ago that his back problems are a result of scoliosis.

    -I have an uncle that was murdered before I was born. His body was found in his car after it had been hit by a train. Apparently, he had been shot in the head. My father had to identify the body.

    -My mother told me stories of when she was in high school and had taken LSD. She said the lockers used to breathe when she walked by them! :lol 

    -My grandfather on my father's side was an alcoholic.

    -I once watched two of my uncles get into a knife fight. One of those uncles is currently in prison for statutory rape.

    That's all I can think of right now...

    my inlaws had Gerald Ford stay with them when he was campaigning through Iowa. Because of that, they were provided with a trip to washington DC which was taped by the national news. My wife has a copy of the coverage.

    -I have a cousin who was in the marines. It was a big deal when he joined, and blah blah blah. He is now a divorced and unhappy telemarketer. This amuses me.

    Well, I stated this in the "Silly Facts About Yourself" thread, but...

    My great-great grandma's family had a friend, John Lingane, who was on board the Titanic when it sank.

    All my family members are going through their mid-life crisis (biker phase) and high-functioning alcoholics. Plus, they're all in awful relationships and at dead-end jobs.

    Interesting is a good word.

    My Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather bought several hundred acres of land in 1750 in Virginia (now West Virginia), and had a 18 year-old survey his land.. The surveyer was George Washington.
