    Cyburbia Deprivation Game 2012 Edition

    I've never had a Milk Dud® until just now... not too bad!

    I'm wondering if Cyburbia wants to play another game of 'Deprivation'? Okay, I never even tried Mexican food (not so much as a Taco Bell taco) until I was 20 years old.

    I lived in Japan for a year in the 1990s, and traveled all over it, and never ate sushi until I got it at a supermarket in suburban Detroit last spring.

    I never had a soda/pop/coke until I was 12.

    I never had pizza until I was 9 or 10, and never had Chinese until I was a senior in college.

    Also, was not allowed to wear jeans until I was 15, or pierce my ears until I was 18.

    I live in Michigan (both the UP and 'down state') and I have never been to Mackinac Island.
    I never tried BW3's until 2002!
    I have never been to a Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field (and I grew up 2 hours north of there)

    Never used a fax machine until this current job.

    I think I've mentioned this somewhere else before, but I'll say it again. I have lived in the Chicago metro area my entire life, but never set foot in Indiana until I was 22, or Michigan until I was 23.

    I didn't set foot in Chicago proper until I was 2.

    I had pizza for the first time when I was 16 years old.

    I had my first Mexican food when I was 22.

    Still never have set foot west of the Rocky Mountains-Colorado is the furtherist to be exact. Took my first non-urban train ride at age 27. Embarrassingly, the only foreign county I've been too is the Bahamas. Obviously I'm more of a local travel kind of person (too much to see still!)

    Yeah, well I've never eaten a live caterpillar myself, but I'm just not quite sure that either qualifies as an experience one has been 'deprived' of.

    I never climbed to the top of a massive Glacier in Northern British Columbia or been to the Bronx until I was 23!

    Never visited the tourist attractions of Washington, D.C., until I was ... 50!

    Still have never eaten a Big Mac or a Whopper!

    I didn't have a fried softshell crab po-boy until I was 30. If you have never had a fried softshell crab po-boy, you might not think that is a big deal. If you ever had a fried softshell crab po-boy, then you know this is the absolute and ultimate in deprivation.

    Hard to improve on a sandwich that is crunchy and delicious and has legs hanging off the side of it.

    I've only visited three foreign countries: Canada, Jamaica, and Texas.
    Annoyingly insensitive
