Taken an ice cold bath: Damn Victorian Gas crisis!!!!!

Taken care of someone who was wasted: aka Lendrum!

Lost over 100 pounds: how many people are this fat? (Lendrum?)

Killed and prepared an animal for eating: This is amazingly fun, however, ducks still have life after the head comes off.

They should add "Been involved in civil litigation"!
