Some of my school mates went on to do truly amazing things like flying one of the the last aircraft into saigon in the vietnam war to evacute australian personel while dodging sams, along the only narrow air corridor available, then retiring to smuggle bibles into russia and the soviet union.
Or getting out of iran about 3 hours before the borders were closed and the revolution began, or having everything stolen by armed bandits while travelling on a train in india and walking into the embassy in a loin cloth. Or establishing the english language school at the univeristy in brunei for the sultan of brunei He asked the sultan what the budget was, and the sultan replied "What do you mean budget? just buy everything you need and hire the best staff you can get".,
Or setting up the chinese equivalent of our satellite television network. Or teaching at chinese and japanese schools for most of your life. Even my nephews doctorate in nuclear molecular biology is more amazing. Oh and one boy and one girl from my class of about 20 high school graduates went on to be well known australian actors and television/ film stars.
