    I haven't seen a post like this yet. I just wanted to know what have been some stupid things you have done?

    For me.

    I was 16 trying to make home made candles at 1:00 am in the morning.Soo I took a whole bunch of old/used candle wax and boiled it down in a pot. Then I took a PLASTIC tupperware bowl. Fill it up with cold water and poured the BOILING wax in the tupperware. 5 seconds later I noticed the bowl started to get weird dimples on it. Fast forward 30minutes later. I'm cleaning up harden wax from the Floor,Oven,Behind the oven, inbetween and under the burners. Not fun! icon_mad.gif

    Great topic as we were just talking about some of the crazy predicaments I've gotten myself into over the years.

    Many, many years ago was playing around with a product called liquid latex, it's liquid much like paint that you can paint onto clothing, It's a thick rubbery goo that makes the clothes look like latex when it dries (should have read directions), friends were coating tanktops, shorts so I figured why not give it a try on some worn out jeans.

    Always had a problem with not reading directions and just "doing things". I decided to latex a pair of tight fitting 501's and figured the best way to do it was to wear the blasted things while my friends applied the coating..

    About an hour later, the liquid latex had dried, then all hell broke loose. Took me about 10 seconds to figure out that the jeans were permanently stuck to every part of my body, I had no clue the Liquid Latex would seep thru the denim and then adhear to every single hair on my legs and I MEAN EVERY HAIR. Called my friends, told them to bring razors blades and that I'd explain when they got here, we spent the next few hours removing the jeans inch by inch from my hairy body. Had to pull the jeans back, then gently slice thru the hairs, pull a little more and cut thru another section of hair. When it was all done, I had a pile of 1" square latex jeans, freshly shaved legs, crotch, ass and friends who still talk about it 20years later...If only I had read to wrap my body in saran wrap before putting the jeans on and applying the Liquid Latex,

    lol candle stories!

    I was 9 years old and I was trying to make a home made candle out of microwaved crayons in a bowl.

    My two year old little sister kept bothering me and I accidentally spilled the freshly melted crayons onto my little sister's face.

    Her right eye wouldn't open and she just kept screaming and screaming and I thought I had blinded her.

    It took like 15 minutes of vigorous scrubbing to finally get her eye to open. And I think I bribed her with candy or something to get her to not tell.

    icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Those are great stories guys.

    When I was a kid we had firecrackers and fireworks on May21st (Victoria day) at the end of our block in a vacant field with the whole neighbourhood. Imagine dozens of little boomer kids tossing firecrackers- some two inches long.

    Man was I excited. It was dark and I lit my two incher and tossed it. I felt something in my closed fist. I looked real close into my palm in the dark and BLAM! Took the eyelashes and brows off and I couldn't hear for ten minutes, or see anything but a giant flash.

    Everyone was either screaming (parents) or laughing (other kids). My brother said my shocked face, lit up by the fireball, still makes him howl.

    Wow... this is too long of a list because I am usually the person that gets into some kind of mess and people look at me with incredulity and pity while its happening lol.

    ONe of the things I can think of is one time I was in a swimming pool and my shorts elastic band was wearing. I jumped out of the pool and my swim shorts did not come with me. This was at a hotel pool so many people saw the mishap.

    When I was 7 or 8, I wanted a new bike for Christmas, but I figured the only way that would happen would be if my parents or Santa saw that my existing bike was old and beaten up, so I went into the garage and started bashing my bike with a baseball bat until I glanced up to see my father standing in the doorway watching me. "What are you doing" he asked. I stupidly explained, adding i the reason for doing so, to which he replied that I would definitely not be getting a new bike for Xmas.

    When I was 11 or 12 and in the mood to not go to school one morning, I figured if my mother saw that I had a fever, she'd let me stay home. Back in the pre-micorwave oven days, she'd heat up water for her morning coffee in a pot on the stove, so while she was out of the room, I took a thermometer and dipped it in the heating water, figuring it'd send the temperature into the 100-102-104 range, which I'd then show her as proof that I was sick and needed to stay home. Well, the water was hotter than I thought and when I stuck the thermometer in, the top end of it popped off and mercury spurted all over the stove. Result: I went to school that day.

    Of course, there were experiments to see if Krazy Glue really was that powerful, which I learned it was when I was walking around the house with a record album cover stuck to my finger.

    Disclaimer: These were when I was very young.

    I once made napalm with a friend. I won't get into the details of exactly how, but we ended up with a small vat of very sticky goo that would remain on fire for quite a long time and couldn't really be put out. We put it in a paper tube lit it, and flung it out of the tube, trying to hit our target. We accidentally missed and lit the fence on fire. icon_redface.gif

    We had a very long and tall staircase in my childhood home. I once decided to squeeze into the hamper and roll myself down the stairs after watching a guy go off Niagra Falls in a barrel on television. Dislocated shoulder. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I once let five gallons of water loose in the kitchen trying to build a toilet. My "plumbing" consisting of spare pieces of copper pipe taped together apparently wasn't water tight. Who'da thunk? Those pipes were reused several times. I used them to try and build a xylophone and pipe organ. I was always building something. One Christmas I was given a bunch of tape as a present, and I was so excited. Turns out "Santa" was really Mom , and she was sick of me using up her tape building things.

    I was a weird kid....... crazy.gif

    I tried to see how black I could get a piece of toast so I kept pushing it back in wheever it'd pop up, until it turned completely black and then began smoking and then, scaring the shit out of 8-year-old me, burst into flames....filling the kitchen with smoke.

    In a house I lived in during college with several other stoners, we left our Xmas tree up until the spring one year because no one felt like taking it down. It was deader than dead when we decided to light 'er up by stuffing the whole tree--balls, tinsel, decorations and all--into the fireplace and wedging it up into the flue. We lit the bottom and the entire thing instantly burst into a crackling, sizzling fireball that torched the mantle and scorched the living room ceiling and startled our stoned selves. It was very cool, though, in some wacked-out way. And lent a very big air of realism to those warnings about Xmas trees being a fire hazard.

    I brought a guy home one night and we were making out on a blanket under the stars in what I thought was a remote, private area in the wooded area behind our home - - we were each just fourteen. We were getting into it - and then heard my grandmother clapping her hands - upset as Hell - shouting for us to stop. It was horrifying. My friend grabbed clothes and shoes - running for the gate. I sat there dumbfounded - waiting for the police my grandmother had summoned. The cop bawled me out - but was somewhat sympathetic. I handled it badly........and went inside and downed a bottle of Sominex. I had not wanted to face the world the next day. Thankfully I "ralphed" up the pills and lived. The next day was quite terse, to say the least. In the end, I lived on and learned a lesson........take amorous adventures away from home!
