    Your Dumbest Moments

    Sitting back and talking to friends, we were discussing some of the dumbest things we've done in our lives. Doesn't have to be a life changing one either. Just things you have done that made you look stupid, even if its just for that split second or longer.

    Most recently, I was at work going over some proofs at a light station with a client. A pen started to roll off the table. I tried to catch it in mid-air with some swiftness. I missed and ended up hitting myself in the nuts. From the pure speed of my hand going for the pen, it has some power behind it. I nearly dropped to my knees instantly but held it in. The client was just staring at me trying not to laugh.

    ^ Ouch icecreamjay!

    For me, by far the dumbest thing I've ever done was to open an account here because I make a complete fool of myself here on a daily basis for the entire world to see.

    Too funny

    It'll take me while to decide on my dumbest moment, I've had/have so many.

    One of my best was the end of a ski day....(getting tired, not paying attention)....
    I didn't stop to wait for the next chair to swing around....so there was now 3 people getting onto a 2 person chair.....

    I knocked a chick off the chair into the snow & rode up the lift with her boyfriend (who was laughing his ass off).....I offered to buy her a beer lol after she finished swearing at me
    Riding.....

    I have too many, but I do count Hawg's example as one of them. Oh, and Norton's too. I don't think I've ever self-knarded though. That's a good one.

    Yeah I was fine. Luckily my head missed the teeter. Ice cream production was uninterrupted.

    At a family gathering years ago I accidentally mistakenly grabbed the azz of a relative's girlfriend thinking, from the corner of my eye, she was my wife.

    The dumbest thing I ever did (at the age ~13)......A friend and I had a hammer, a brick and a few 22 rounds. THANK GOD, we didn't hurt ourselves or anyone else. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!

    30+ years later and I still cringe.

    Yup!! When I was a kid my buddy and I would steal his brother's shotgun shells and cut them open with a hacksaw to get the gunpowder out of them. Then we'd burn it just to watch it go up in smoke. I still have my fingers, too.

    Tried hitting a thrown basketball with an aluminum softball bat. Bat bounced back into my face, broke my right eyebrow. That probably tops it for me so far, even my motorcycle crash hurt less lol.

    Ha! I did something similar as a kid. Was trying to hit a baseball straight up. The bat hit me between the eyes, raising a huge egg on my forehead.

    I once picked up a soldering iron by the wrong end! Dropped it, as you would, and burnt a hole in the brand new livingroom carpet. Hurt a lot by the way.

    I've told this story before but thought to share it here as well. I was working on my bike and put it all together then took it down the street for a test ride. Started down my driveway and just rode to the end of the block. Instead of going back up my driveway, I decided to go up on a curb. I forgot to lock down the quick release and my front wheel just starting rolling. I put my hand down to break my fall and ended up breaking my wrist.
