My father once divorced my mother and made her go batshit insane. True story.

My mother's mother was chosen as the Ontario representative for Miss Supercontinental (I think that's what it was called). Sometime in the 50's, Canada got a new train and took it along the Trans-Canada railway. They also chose a representative - A.K.A. a good-looking woman - from each province to go along with it and go across Canada.

Neither of my grandfathers were in any war, as far as I know, but they were both amazing handymen and would fix anything in no time.

My father worked for Albert Spear with out knowing it. He found out later and then laughed his ass of at how weird it was that he shook a mans hand s we had shaken H-itlers hand. He had to make small models of buildings for him.

That and my grandfather was a professor and survived WWII as a Jew.

my great grandfather was working on an (aircraft carriar?i can't remember, i only heard the story once a long time ago, it was some warship) when it was kamikazied. the (captian?) was unconscious/dead, so William Penn McCarty (great grandfather) took control, he ended up saving the crew/boat. he got a silver star and went on to be rear admiral.

EDIT: o wow...apparently its on the internet. the louisville was a "light cruiser" and the CO was incapacitated for duty"

One of the guys who invented Superman is my distant cousin.

But the real Bad-ass: My grandfather. He came home to find his family taken away by the Nazis, got put in a work camp on his 16th birthday, got out, fought with the Russians as a partisan and lived in the woods for 3 years.At this point he knew0 4 languages and the Russians asked him to be a spy (He turned them down He got shot 4 times, once through the knee. They were going to amputate his leg but he said "Eff that" and he recovered. After the war he lived in West Germany and but went over the Berlin Wall. TWICE. Once to rescue people and the second time in his words "To deal with people" (He and a friend tracked down the Piltogg's that killed their families. After that he came to Canada using a dead guy\s papers, got a job in a slaughterhouse and eventually owned a farm. Since then he has had 3 heart attacks, 3 children and quit smoking just by saying "Screw this, smoking is for tools"

I never knew my dad's father, but all I've ever heard him reffered to as is "Cap'n Snyder." I don't know his first name.

This man was in the Navy for some length of time, and after his time in the armed forces, he became a tugboat captain on Lake Michigan. I've only heard a few stories, but they're enough proof that he was a totally awesome sailor-man.

My favorite is the one my Uncle Bob told me about when he got back from being all in the Navy during the Korean War. He gets off his boat, and the firs thing he gets is a phone call from Cap'n Snyder.

"Hey, Bob, I need you on the boat. Get up to Lake Michigan. I just threw the First Mate overboard."

There are more stories, but I think this little one speaks volumes.

Another a family friend told me started with him banging some chick in his bunk on the boat. Cap'n Snyder comes in piss-drunk with a case of warm beer and just sits down next to them and stares for a few minutes. Dann-O just kinda stopped humping and sat there for a bit staring back until Cap'n Snyder said, "So, Dann-O, you gonna drink these with me or what?"

Dann-O then proceeded to drink half a case of warm beer with my grandfather, while a naked woman lay awkwardly in his bed, really confused but smart enough to stay still.

great uncle steve: lives 10 miles away from bridgeport in a man-camp, with taxidermy on the walls.

great great great great great great grandfather Richard Foxwell (dead): came over with the first colonists. My family still has his land.
I hate weddings. Old people would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped when I started going up to them at funerals and poking them, saying, "You're next"
