I'll start. This may not be the stupidest, but I just accidentally shot myself in my thumb with my wife's epi-pen. The needele was bent, presumably from hitting the bone. This is a new kind of hurt.

How much time you got? I got a million of 'em.

The worst, for me, was crashing my motorcycle trying not to run over a effin' cat.

Smoking cigarettes ranks right up there. Took me 30 years to quit.

In my early teens, I worked at a gun club on the Trap and Skeet ranges.

Whilst working in the Trap House one afternoon, I had been sitting there for an
extended period of time waiting for the next round of shooters. Being in a trap
house, the only opening is in the front where the clay pigeons "fly" out.

Anyway, after waiting and waiting, I decided I was forgotten about and climbed out,
just as the first shooter was aiming to fire. I climbed out and just he was pulling the
trigger on his trusty 12 gauge, noticed my head wasn't a clay pigeon and averted his aim.
Still fired though, in the air well over my head.

At any age, that will scare the living hell out of you.

Needless to say, I NEVER left the Trap House until someone came for me.

Along the lines of lonoman’s story, I almost pulled a Dick Cheney on my dad about 15 years ago while quail hunting in South Carolina. We were down around Beaufort and we had a guide. I was on the left, guide was in the middle, and my dad was the right. So whatever flew out on the left, I would shot, whatever was on the right my dad would shoot. So the dog starts pointing at this bush, and a covey of quail fly out, sort of in the middle, but more to the right in hindsight. I totally screwed up and took the shot, when I really should not have. I pull the trigger and I see him hit the deck. I nearly **** in my pants (can’t imagine what his skivvies looked like).

A slight tangent, but he was a special ops Marine in Vietnam and was also a sniper, so I am sure he had not been shot at in several decades. We also grew around guns and he is a firm believer that there are no accidents with guns, only stupidity and carelessness…and he is right I believe, because I had a momentary case of both. Anyway, after he gets up and brushes himself off, he looks at me with this stare like he is going to kill me, literally, and out of his mouth comes his best Drill Instructor imitation, “BOY, YOU **** IN SHOOT ME AND ITS ALL OVER FOR YOU!!” I don’t think I attempted another shot for like 30 minutes. I was shaking in my boots.

Okay, here's one:

Back when I was a stoopid, beer-drinking, pot-smoking 17 year old (I no longer drink) - some of my buds decided that it would be fun to climb to the top of an abandoned broadcast tower and party.

"Abandoned" only in the sense that the TV station that used to be located right beneath it had moved to a new site. I am sure the antennae and dishes at the top were still used for relaying signal. I am sure about that now. I had no knowledge or concept of micro-wave signals at the time. No telling if I got cooked in the guts or not. Probably no way to know until the doc uses the "C" word during a future physical exam. But I digress.

Anyway, ... well first of all - one of my few real fears is of heights.

I have gotten drunk in rogue biker bars, had car trouble at 3:00 in the morning in real bad neighborhoods, sat on the wrong side of the stadium during an Alabama-Auburn game and eaten unidentifiable cuisine. None of that stuff bothered me like being up in a tall location.

But I was drunk at the time, so climbing the tower just seemed like a pretty smart thing to do.

So we climb this ladder that is attached to the tower. Well, first, we had to get on top of the building to leap over to the ladder. The ladder itself stops at about 20 feet before the ground - presumably to keep un-designated folks from climbing the tower.

We climb this tower - rung by rung. No safety harnesses or belts of any kind. Four or five of us one after the other. At least one of us was also carrying a cooler full of beer and thus, using only one hand to climb the ladder.

I am guessing (conservatively) that we were 500 feet in the air by the time we reached the top.

There was a platform up there where the workers who tweak the antennae and change out the red lights stand. We sat there drinking beer and doobin' it up for a couple of hours - illuminated every few seconds by the pulsating red lights.

At one point, we noticed a police squad car drive up. They just looked like ants, way down there. I'm guessing they looked in the vehicle and didn't see anything. They just drove away.

So after a couple of hours of hard-core teenage partying ... we headed back down.

In retrospect, there were so many things that could've gone wrong. If one of the guys anywhere above the others had slipped - everyone of us would've fallen to the ground and been deader'n stomped roaches.

There is also the question of the microwaves.

Like I said - there are too many stories akin to this one. But whenever anybody starts a conversation of "the dumbest thing I've ever done", this episode always comes to my mind.

This was maybe 20 years ago.

maybe more.

I remember it well though, like it was yesterday.

I walked into McDonalds, and ordered a Large Coke, Large Fries, and a Big Mac.

I was just too stupid to realize i could have saved money by ordering a meal deal.

Wild and crazy youth i guess.

Responding to threads about stupid posts!

Too many to bore you. Not seeing the Allman Brothers until 2005 is pretty stupid. At least I never shot myself.

The summer of 79'

3 teen age kids and a lil bag of opium dippped thai stick. One steel tower along the Santa Ana river bottom on the side of a big hill. 1 kid gets electrocuted and falls to death on fire. Another 200+ lb. kid is flash blinded and (me) the third kid carries him back down the tower to the ground. There wasn't any ladder either.

The summer of 80'
a half mile away from above location. 2 teen age kids sitting on a train bridge that crosses the Santa Ana river bottom. A train is heading one way on the bridge, slowing down. we start walking the opposite direction. The bridge is 1/4 to 1/2 mile long ? I turn back and see that another train is coming, hauling @$$ cause it is heading out of town. We run and I jumped over at the last possible moment. My friend didn't make it and run over by the train.

The summer of 81'.... nobody wanted to hang out with me

Suddenly, I don't feel all that stoopid! Trumped!

Seriously, sorry about your friends.

Reminds me of the recent article on Gregg Allman in Rolling Stone when he talks about his multiple marriages and he says, “I’m starting to think it’s me.”

The tip of the needle is curled back. How that happened i don't know, except that it must have hit the bone in my thumb. You can see where it went in, and yes, that discoloration is all bruising. This is gonna keep me fro mplaying guitar for a while (My picking hand)

I can dig it. I sold my '70 SS454 Chevelle for $7000 in 1991 and it's probably worth $30-40K now.
