So I was on the train home with a few friends on the way back from a party, we were all fairly drunk and these random people come up to us and start talking to us, we were talking to one of the guys and he was saying that he was the main character from the film thunderpants, we were like "holy crap!" and he was talking about it, he's actually lost a lot of weight and gotten taller, if you don't know what it is this should sum it up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderpants

Point of this thread, has anyone else had experiences like this?

The closest I've come is John Petrucci, who only touched my guitar. (And signed it, but that's beside the point.)

I'd like to think that by holding my guitar, some of his nutrients will seep into my bloodstream, thus passing on some of his powers to me.

I've sat next to Steven Hawkins in the cinema a few times and I've seen him out and about a couple of times. In fact I think most people who live in or around Cambridge have had a similar experience.

I ran into Russell Brand in the Tate Modern once. I was with a group of friends and we sorta did that " celebrity!" thing and then decided we didn't want to bother him.

I ran into Chris Guglielmo, the drummer of Bayside (my favorite band), in Washington DC before his show there. He saw me wearing a Bayside shirt and asked me if I had tickets. I told him no because I had no money. He got my friend and I into the show and had a cigarette with us. Twas pretty cool.

Last thursday I had to go to the hospital and sit in the waiting room for like 5 hours (long, boring and sad story). The guy sitting next to me hosts 'The Price is Right' here in Portugal.

Kinda stupid, I know.

EDIT:

Oh, I just remembered: Last June I ran into Colin Farrel and Tim Robbins in Lisbon (in a Leonard Cohen concert). I thought I was just confusing them with some regular guys, but I saw the pics on the papers the following day. Have absolutely no ideia WTF was Colin Farrel doing in a Leonard Cohen concert in Lisbon...

Yeah, I should've assaulted someone because you don't find them funny.

Grow the fuck up, just because someone's famous doesn't mean you can treat them however you like. If they've genuinely done things you disagree with then maybe I could understand, although even so physically attacking them is the most retarded way to deal with it.

That is incredibly cool. I'd love it if that happened with my favourite band.
