Stupid things!

So I was looking at these bananas we have, and they've been green for atleast 2-3 days so far, I got to wondering, maybe they aren't bananas maybe they are another type of banana that stays green, so I crack it open... and yep.. still banana . It was really really touch to open, and the actual banana was pretty much fused to the skin.

 

This got me to remember some of the other stupid things I've done before;

 

When I was really really young, I hid an egg in my desk at home, put it in a basket with a heating blanket around it to see what would happen, I thought maybe it would hatch... it did.. and I had a fine young hard boiled egg.

 

just a few days ago I had to stop the car since it was over heating, I was in a rush and didn't wait for it to cool before I opened up the thing to put coolant in... and got sprayed upon, luckily it was just water but ><....

 

 

So what about everyone else?

When me and my brother were really young (like 9 and 4) we (I) decided to play a game where I would throw a chair over his head. Bad news is I lost the game and my brother won it unfortunately that meant he had to go get stitches =-/

My son when he was about 1 year old was playing with a balloon (you would think harmless enough right?) Untill he figured out that if he jumped on it just right he could lanch himself. Well thats just what he did, he lanched himself into and threw

our fish tank.

Eria and I were standing close feeding fish in another tank when water was pouring all over our feet and our sons head was inside the tank!. Eria carfully picked up and pulled little alex out of the tank and ran to the kithen. I was in shock at what had just happened and took a sec or too realize we had to rush to the hospital.

I sat in the back seat of the car holding towels over Alex's head and carfully pulling shards of glass out of his soaking wet sweater. Lucky for alex he only needed 4 stiches in his forhead and they used surgical glue on his little nose(to close to his eye for stiches) also alot of bandages on some smaller cuts. Doctors are still amazed he didnt lose an eye.

He was so covered in blood and cuts they though it was a dog attack, until they had the fun of trying to take a soaking wet, glass filled sweat shirt off a very ticked off 1 year old ><.

I ran into a Handicapp Parking Sign in 6th grade. Not on a bike, not in a car. I was running. And I ran into the sign.

 

Oh. And not the flat part of the sign. The side of it. The thin, rusty part.

 

I hit it so hard my feet flew out and my legs straddled the pole, I landed on my ass. My friend who was behind me was laughing until I stood up and turned around. I saw his face change from laughter to shock and I didn't understand why. That's when I realized my face stung a bit, I touched the side that hit the sign and pulled my hand back to look at it.

 

It was completely covered in blood.

 

I had to go to the hospital and have them check it out, all that stuff. It was too shallow to stitch but deep enough that they had to put the little butterfly bandages on it. Also they gave me this clear goop I had to put on it daily so it wouldn't scar.

 

Did I mention that this was the beginning of 6th grade? Like... first week. I became known for it. Even years later in high school there were people who simply knew me as "That kid who ran into the sign."

I have never done anything stupid. Ever. I mean it.

 

I'm at the other end of the spectrum, I don't know where to begin. hehe

 

Shot myself out of a paintball game. Drag behind cars. Run over by bikes. Face planted on railroad ties after falling 10 feet. Oh and then there was the time I rolled my car...

Well. there's a few places I could start.

one of the stupidest, but funniest, has to do with me and my brother and dad...

Me and my brother and cousins were playing hide in seek on christmas day back when we were like 3-8 years old. My brother decided to hide in a dryer filled with cloths, and my mom told my dad to turn the dryer on. After he turned it on, he heard a thumping sound from inside, and walked downstairs to find my mom and see if there was any very heavy clothing in the dryer, when she said no and looked around and couldn't find my brother, they both ran upstairs and opened the dryer only to find him rather toasty warm (been running for about 3-4 minutes by then.

 

then again, there was the time that I was outside cutting wood with an axe, I hit a piece at the wrong spot and angle, ended up cutting it in half, shot a piece at a tree and it bounced back hitting me in the face.

 

Or the time that I was swimming during the summer and decided I wanted to go for a bike ride, went riding around a turn (that was covered in durt) thought I should do a skid and ended up sliding a good 25feet scrapping my entire side from my foot to my arm on the gravel and such. ended up at the hospital with them pulling durt and such out of my side for 3 hours.

 

that's just the start, i won't go to far into it tho...

This is brutal. In college my roommate and I got together all the time with the IU rugby team and played tackle football in Dunn Meadow (a huge field where people played sports, had picnics, sat and read, did whatever). Anyway, he got tackled one time and slid on his left hip/asscheek across the gravel jogging path that circled the field. This gravel was that REALLY tiny and jagged stuff. He had a strawberry about 8 inches across that he spent hours in the campus hospital with a nurse scrubbing it with what amounted to a brillo pad. He was bummed.

When I got my first mountain bike, I was amazed at all the options. Changing gears...the curly handle bars...and look...another set of brakes! I thought I would be able to stop faster with the front ones... I flipped over the handle bars and landed with my lag sliding on some rocks. The cut didn't look too deep but just kept bleeding, but I didn't get stitches or anything. I have a scar there now :confused:

 

Back in 6th grade or so, I went on a first date with a girl from one of my classes and took her to Great Escape (a 6 Flags-esque amusement park near me). Well we were walking and talking and such, and I walked straight into a massive light pole that they have in the middle of the paths. After getting a bandage at the aid station there, we resumed the date :tongue:

 

^There are many such incidents like that where I walk into things.

 

I was in class talking to a few friends, and one was discussing that their friend Sarah was having a baby soon. Shortly thereafter another woman sat down, and I noticed her stomach and said "Oh! Congratulations Sarah! When is it due?" She was apparently, not Sarah, and not pregnant.

well this one time in about...grade 9 i was hanging out with some buds(i lived out in the boons at that time)

 

nothing better to do, so we got some firecrackers. starting lighting them off throwing them at each other

 

well i thought it would be a smart idea to light a whole pack, and try and throw it, and me being stupid i lite it for some reason pulling my arm back beside my ear, and BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM off they went right beside my ear, lucky for me i can still hear out of my right ear, but for a good two days i couldn't lol

 

another time me and my friends made a homemade M1000 u should have seen the gunpowder in this baby.

 

anyways i am behind the camera and my friend goes to lite it, and he is sitting there trying to lite it(during the day), so finally i say Fuck man would u lite it already, and BOOM it blows up in his face and smoke is just coving him, greatest laugh i ever had

 

lastly there are these train tracks down the road at my moms, so me and my friends made a bet, that when the lights started flashing to see who can ride their bikes there first and beat the train

 

so we are all waiting and boom the lights go off, we start giving her 2 people bail out early so just me and my buddy left we are about 10 feet away, and he bails

 

so just me left givin'er i hit the tracks and i swear to god about 4-5 feet away from me was the front of the train but i made it, and it was the biggest rush i ever had

 

also all of these moment are on video at my friends place i should see if i can get them at one point put them on a disk

Mmm, I actually did something really stupid today.

 

I was doing push-ups in Weight Training and I hit my head on the floor :-\

 

Another time in weight training, we were doing this thing when you keep your left leg (on your knee) and right arm on the ground, and the other two parallel to the ground, and we switch, holding each for like... 10-15 seconds. Then my teacher told us to do it with no legs and arms, and it took me a good 20 seconds to realize that I couldn't do that :-\. I was trying so hard.

I just bought my new car, 2006 honda civ, 4 door. First thing I do: get in the car and push back with my feet so I can reach the seat belt behind my seat; in doing so I floored the gas petal.

when i was 4 or 5 i shoved a bunch of raisins up my nose from my raisin toast. i never got to eat raisin toast again.

 

edit: i should mention that since they'd been up there about 6 hours before my mom saw them, they'd turned all gray and she thought my brains were coming out my nose.

Two years ago, i cut my hand open while making Popcorn. Yes you heard right, POPCORN. What essentially transpired was that The Fugitive was on cable and it was actually the first time that i'd be able to watch it from start to finish so i figured that i should make some popcorn. What you guys have to realize is that at the same time that i went to look for a bag of popcorn, i *really* had to go the bathroom so i hurried to the microwave, dumped the bag into the microwave, set the time for 3 minutes and bolted to the bathroom. Or at least that's how the plan should have worked. Instead, i set the microwave on for 30 minutes.

 

By the time i got back, the kitchen was up in smoke and i rushed to turn off the microwave and open the windows. You think I could have done this easily? Hell no. When i was opening the last window, it jammed a third way through. Murphy's Law: 1 Ed: 0. So being the impatient person I am, i closed it slightly before slamming it open... and knocking over the glass pitcher on the counter.

 

Now this pitcher didn't split in half or break into tiny pieces, no, you know the pouring edge of the pitcher? That snapped off when it hit the surface of the counter.

 

You know that whenever you are in mortal danger or you just plain messed the hell up that life goes in slow motion yet during all that time, your ability to make decisions rival those of red-headed prom dates after two jello shots. I stood there and watched the pitcher roll ever so slowly off the counter and had to react quickly.

 

Einstein here decided to catch it. Not on the smooth part with both hands, no, the sharp "stab your guts out" part with ONE hand.

 

I still don't think that my younger brother ever recovered from my screaming and swearing, especially when i sprayed blood all over his shirt when he wanted to find out whether or not I blew up the oven. Did i mention that it squirted? Yeah, Kill Bill's dismembered henchmen had nothing on this 1 and a half inch long thumb. And if Murphy's Law wasn't done being a sadist, i started hyperventilating. You know that 90 pound frail lookin' pale guy who barfs his innards out during horror movies? I'm that guy, just twice his weight and hispanic but with the mouth of a sailor. My poor brother ran back to the kitchen to get me a paper bag and my first instinct was to puke in it rather than to breathe into it so while my brother ran again to get another one, i was inhaling Barf-air for a good 2 minutes.

 

To this day, i have yet to see that damned movie from start to finish.

I'll share with you the story of how I got attacked by a squirrel which left my kneecap gored at a later date.
