Long story short. Stole a wheelchair accessable Van from the BC Paraplegic Assoc. and drove it to Ontario in the dead of winter, all for a girl. And not even for me, for a friend of mine. I was just along for the ride. And what a ride it was.

i was hooking up a set of speakers recently...

had everything hooked up and plugged in and working great...

but i needed to reposition something.

so i left everything plugged in, moved a few things and disconnected the power. not from the socket, but from a coupling. i put the one side of the coupling on the ground, the other in my mouth.

...and did i mention i was underneath my desk at the time...?

well...my tongue touched the LIVE end which was in my mouth. a little, bright flash eminated from my pie-hole and my head shot upwards rapidly causing it to meet, with force, the underside of the desk. it's a heavy desk, so it didn't move. mind you, my vision went a little funny for a minute.

...end result...a few weeks later i wound up giving the speakers to my brother, and my new set got set up incident-free.

when I was about 10 I was standing on one of those high (about 6 foot) "good neighbour" fences and was about to jump off. Didn't notice my pantleg was over top of the verticle board, as I jumped my pantleg caught and instead of landing on the old mattress we where playing around with, I face planted the fence and ground. (and Batman made it look so simple)

you have to be WAY more specific than that. More along the lines of what is the stupidest thing you have done with an office chair (my lil chair surfing incident)
while if you expand it to furniture you have the flaming couch, the drive in lazy boy, the adhoc ejection system, couch drag racing....ad infinitatum. I have electrocuted myself dozens of times, set myself on fire, jumped/been thrown/fallen off low-moderate heights...Yes, Darwin himself concedes he was wrong on some things when it comes to us.

I live to do those things. MY buds and I tend to be pretty crazy and live by the maxim "Some say why? we say Why not?" and alot of what we have done is best described as "seemed like a good idea at the time"
So long as we are not seriously hurt and odds are it will be fun we do stupid things on a daily basis. If its a rush or a laugh we will usually do it.....

Funnest/stupidest thing to do with a TENS put an electrode on two different people in close proximity and watch what happens

Betty...you reminded me of one i did when i was about 8.

we were camping, and i had my bike with me. there was a dirt path all around the camping spots, and i was riding in circles around it...took maybe a minute to make a full lap.

well...i had it figured out that i could keep my handlebars in one position for the whole lap, and hardly had to move them at all. so, i put on a little extra speed and tested it out. it worked.

so i closed my eyes and tried to do a full lap.

dumbass.

i made about 1/4 of a lap, and smacked, face first, into the extended mirror dad had put on the truck. bike kept going for a little bit, but i pretty much stayed in the same spot. gravity took effect, so there i am, bleeding profusely from the face, on my ass in the dirt.

I found some gunpowder in my husband's closet after he died. He'd made his own bullets for hunting and I had given away all the brass and other gear, so didn't know what to do with the powder. It was in sealed, metal cans.

Knowing that our local RCMP detachment had a firearms officer, I bundled up the cans in a brown paper bag and drove over. I waited patiently in the reception area until it was my turn. There was a big, hairy biker dude in colours behind me in line.

When it was my turn, I approached the desk and handed the bag to the receptionist, saying "I need to turn in this pile of gunpowder." Of course, as soon as the words were out of my mouth I realized what I'd done....

The biker dude was slowly backing up and the receptionist froze in her tracks, eyes as big as saucers. She said "I'll just go get my supervisor......."

Apparently you can't just hand in gunpowder at the Cop Shop. Who knew?? I ended up filing it as a Lost and Found report!

LOL You want me to name ONE! I have done too many dumb things to mention. I don't really dwell on them and for this reason nothing comes to mind when the question is asked. We are allowed to make mistakes. What matters is that we learn from them.

I understand full bladder speed and actually the pain of a nasty nose injury. I almost broke my nose once upon a time and it really bled. I cannot ever remember seeing that much blood. I was playing baseball at the time and someone threw the ball and crash, it hit my nose. If it had of been a bleeding contest, I would have won hands down. I think the most stupid thing about this was playing on a baseball team where I did not have any sort of emotional connection with the other players. I regret ever playing baseball. The entire experience was dumb.
