    When I was 4 and had just moved to Atlanta from Cleveland, I remember going to the Chattahoochee nature center and while there, seeing a large, reddish 3 ft wide 2 ft tall mound next to a trail. Naturally, I decided to investigate and sat in it. seconds later, 1000's of angry insects stormed into by pants and proceeded to chomp my hindquarters.

    My first experience with "fire ants".....

    Nah, both of those are fun, if you do it right.

    1. The egg in the microwave, I did as a cool party trick, at someone elses house. Was a neat experiment when yer not the one cleaning it up.

    2. I never tried a single piece of wire, but I cut the cord off an old lampstripped 3 inches of wire on both sides. Took it to school, waited for the teacher to leave the room, plugged it in, touched both ends together being careful to hold onto the plastic part still, tons of sparks, melted all the wire I stripped plus 2 inches of the still insulated plastic, blew the circut breaker for the entire school, the power was out at school for almost an hour. And the greatest part is I never got in trouble.

    Two of my dumbest that come to mind right off are

    1) When I was a kid I found a fish hook on a length of string. My brother and I got to goofing around (Great White Fishermen that we were [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] !) and I somehow managed to get the hook throgh my earlobe. Very embarasing not just 'cause I knew I shouldn't have been messing around with a sharp pointy object, but only girls got their ears pierced ('member this was a lonnnnggg time ago). The second one was aslo way back when. I found this can of spray paint. I think it was a blue-green sorta color. Being curious (and a tad greedy), I decided I was going to get that marble out of it. Just thinking of the bragging rights on where I got my marble (Maybe I should blame this on my brother. He was the one I was going to one up.) had me smirking.
    Banging on it with a rock was getting no where fast, so I tried a hammer. That wasn't fast enough either. Then I found the hatchet [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] . I cautiously gave the can a couple of whacks with the hatchet and succeeded in sending it flying across the ground but was still unable to get a hole in it to get my marble out. Having gotten somewhat overconfident in my ability to aviod injuries thus far I dropped my guard a tad (I'd abandoned commen sence from the start), and gave the can the biggest whack I could. POW! I had just enough time to close my eyes before my face became the pretties blue-green color. To add insult to injury, my brother got the marble while my mom was chewing me out for my stupidity and cleaning the paint off my face.

    I tend to hurt the people around me more then myself..

    Here is a tip. If you are roasting marshmallows and it starts on fire, shaking the stick doesn't put it out, it sends a flaming marshmallow flying.

    A tip to go with that one. If your jacka** of a friend (me) tries to put out a flaming marshmallow by shaking the stick. And a flaming marshmallow lands on your face, slapping it to your face only spreads the area that gets burned.
    Quickly picking it off would be a better option.

    Flaming marshmallows....oh man I remember those. All I can remember is my marshy catching on fire and then me swinging it and my friend running around like a chicken with its head cut off!

    Another good one is what my friend did. His father hired a contractor to do some electrical work. The contractor told my friend to go downstairs and flip the circuit breaker when he TOLD him to [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Well my friend yells back "You mean THIS one?" Click click and all we heard was "Yaaaaa!!!" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
