It all started for me before I was born when God asked me what sort of brain I wanted. I thought He said "train" so I asked for a slow one!

Didn't trust my intuition...found out I was correct 12 years later. I'll never get those 12 years back.

Ouch! I feel your pain Lilly. :(  

Since the title of this thread isn't The Most Stupid Thing You've Done I'll just post the following:

Umm..... Errr.... Uhh....

On second thought, forget it. There's nothing I can post on a family friendly forum that won't get me banned for life. :blink:

The most stupid thing i have ever done would be if i even put a top 10 of stupid things i have done on the internet haha

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Are we limited to just one thing?

I've done more stupid things than I care to say. I had a dear friend tell me before I married the woman I married, ".....take a good hard look at her mother, because whether you believe it or not when gets to be that age you're going to get about eighty-five percent of what her mother is now." Naturally, I was all in love and naive and married her anyway. Now I'm happily divorced.....broke and working at a job I hate with no future and happy as I can be.

Posted 05 February 2013 - 08:19 AM

I was a barista and put the cup of coffee I just made in front of the cash register.. I typed in the codes and when the "cha-ching" thing happened and the tray popped out the coffee fell on the floor. The customer wasnt amused and I felt dumb.

I also got my hair caught in a paper folding machine.

Also.. I used to wear those long fake fingernails and one of them came off but I stuck it back on with a bandaid. I worked at a restaraunt called Steamers which had a window on one side for serving ice-cream to people walking by (this is in the tourist district) so I was at the ice-cream counter waiting on a customet and my fingernail, bandaid and all fell off and landed right on top of the scoop. It would have been perfectly placed if it were a cherry. Luckily the customer didnt notice, I kinda just flicked it off and handed it to them anyway.

Also at the same job I lifted a lid off a steam pot and burned my wrist so bad I needed bandages, people thought I tried to kill myself because of the placement of my removed skin.. I had a scar for like 10 years, it finally went away.

I have other dumb stuff... but theres some dumb work stories for you...

Turned all the furniture in a house upside down and replaced all the photo's with a really goofy one of myself...then my sister caught me...it was her house.

Pop-shoved-it off a ledge to big for me as a kid on a skateboard and took the nose right to my bouncy balls (to put it mildly), it was like p***ing glass for a week.

I once found a box of matches. As I was walking past a factory, mindlessly striking them an tossing them away, I failed to notice they were all landing on the dry dead grass around said factory (it was also a hot summers day) and only realized my (hilarious) idiocy when I came back past the factory and witnessed about 10 gruff factory workers battering three foot high flames with spades in a feeble attempt to put it out...oh how I laughed.

Convinced myself I loved a girl when I was sixteen...just no.

I once took a Valium (trouble sleeping) at night and woke up in a laundry basket but ******* hell it was comfy, even if everyone was wondering where the hell I went.

Serious one for srys'ness: Left all friends behind and went it alone although months later most of them sorta' weened their way back. Felt good at the time but I felt like a **** all the same.

Non serious: Sneaked into a farmers field to pick spuds (welcome to Ireland) and got shot in the **** and back by a hot rice gun by culchies (Rednecks to you Americaners).

Another is my friends and I were walking in the woods so I ran ahead and darted around to scare one of the girls, she had an oak walking stick. I never thought she was the type of person to swing, well I popped up behind and grabbed her shoulder and smack. Out Cold. Next school year she tried out for field hockey and did quite well.

I once lit my entire back yard on fire, one dry summer, when I shot a flaming arrow and missed the target. It hit the dry grass in the back of my yard, when I saw that it lit the grass on fire I ran to the other side of the fence to stop the fire from spreading to the woods behind my yard. By the time I stopped the fire from getting into the woods it was half way to the house, and by the time I got to the hose and put it out it was about 5 feet from the house. The fire didn't get very high and I think it would have went out when it got to the house, but I was not going to take any chances.

The irony is my house burnt down 5 years later (may have been my fault).

Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows a fossil sequence, the list of species represented changes through time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the practice of squeezing one's eyes shut and wailing "Does not!" ~Author Unknown

This takes the biscuit for sheer stupidity...

Instead of going down a water slide I actually clambered up it.
You could say it was a bit of apprehension after the first time.
Because I honestly felt I was going to drown when the water and foam got in my mouth.
But as soon as I got over my fears the second plunge wasn't actually that daunting.
Tbh I think that knock to my head was affecting my judgment.

This incident happened at the Sandcastle for my sins.
