So today I was fixing my screen door with the nearest tool I had available. (drum-roll please)

My knife.

Hilarity ensued as I spilled stupid all over myself. Because I'm an idiot.

Please enjoy these pictures of my stupid.



Now in addition to being stupid, I also happen to be an EMT among other things. And I was pretty impressed with my one-handed wrap job. Check it out.



So fellow ATSers, do you have a story of something you did that was stupid?
Please share.

Nah, it didn't bruise my ego. I have no problem laughing at myself. I think I was due for something like this anyway.

It was just very inconvenient because I was busy.

I mistakenly put Italian dressing in my coffee, thinking it was honey. 2 days ago. Gag.

Oh man, I just remembered this little adventure I had about 10 yrs ago or so.
I was really drunk and I found a Black Widow, it was a pretty big sucker too. I thought it would be the funniest thing in the world if I bit it too death.

Obviously I'm still here, so fate was in my favor. And thus occurred the only time that I am aware of, that a Black Widow died from a human bite.

Thinking back, I am very lucky. I don't know how long a drunk person would last after taking a Black Widow bite to the tongue.

We have a long running joke at work whenever one of us mechanics is using an exacto knife we pull out the first aid kit and put it on their toolbox ( it's usually me !!)

Upon arriving at my first station of duty (Germany) after AIT, we soon hit up the back 40 and set up a FARP.


The first thing my Platoon Sgt. asked me was to go get the Chem Light repair kit...




There is no repair kit for a chem light...they gave me hell until I ETS'd.

A few stitches, it wasn't too bad just deep. I can't make video upload from my phone, but you can see stuff moving inside.

Probably tendons and muscles


Nasty, but as long as you keep the wound clean it will be no problem.

Things that you only ever do once..............

When I was 16 (1988) I put a plate of food in the microwave and wrapped it in tin-foil. Set it to high for 10minutes and walked off.

Came back after about 3 minutes to the "crackling" sound - freaked out - grabbed a bucket of WATER and proceeded to dowse the microwave whilst it was still running - blacked-out the house, destroyed microwave and gained a reputation all in the space of about 30 seconds - the old man came home that evening and unleashed his can-o-whoopass on my stupidity.

The old man still takes the piss out of me - he used this story as a reference to stupidity when he used to give employees safety inductions.

Thanks for the ongoing reminder old man.

Wow, that's classic man.

One time, I think I was 8 or 9 yrs old.
My brother had model rockets. I took the squib/electric match and stuck the leads into the wall socket. I then proceeded to stick the rocket motor on it. And flicked the switch on the wall.

Shag carpet caught fire. I got the living snot beat out of me.

Even better, the next morning I noticed the leads were still sticking out of the socket. I went to pull them out. Of course the switch was still on. Boy did I get fried.

To this day, I think I hate getting electrocuted more than anything.

Similar story, I went to make some tea a year ago and turned on the front burner instead of the back one with the kettle on it.

The front burner had a paper plate on it.

I went down to the basement to wait for the kettle to whistle, then smelled smoke and hustled back upstairs to prevent the house from burning down.

Also, speaking of fire and drunkenness, I've lit the wrong end of a cigarette more than once.

A friend and I were in Spain doing a pub crawl..

.. we went to pub after pub after club after club..

.. you know that point, when you have a shot of tequilla and you know immediately '' crap, i probably shouldnt of had that one ''... well i got to that point.. i knew i was going to barf.

so i said to my mate

' hhmmm ugggg, ahhhh, aww.w.. duude, im garna pook ''

i stumbled around until I found a toilet.. bonzai i thought.

walk in, close door, lock door, hands and knee's, hug toilet bowl, puke and pass out.

sweet right?.. wrong.

after some time i was woken up by loud banging on the toilet door.. i shook my head and realised, crap.. im still in the club toilet.. i stood up, washed my face, cleaned myself up and opened the door.

as i exited to toilet i was confronted by a LOOOONNNNGGG line of angry women..

it dawned on me, i passed out in the only womens toilet..

I quickly stumbled out of the pub and passed out on the beach!


ID10T moment.

Learned my lesson not to use my soda as an astray.
I put the soda in the fridge, went to get a drink, next thing that happened, let's just say it wasn't pretty.


Oh, and another one, letting my sister move in.


Just curious, can you show a picture of the knife? I don't want the same thing happening to me. Looks like it was a butcher knife with that kind of cut....

OUCHIE!!!!

Hope it gets better. That looks like it really, really, hurt.

Well Heff. You win.

I haven't made that mistake yet. Don't feel too bad though, I know some dudes that are on their 4th and 5th wives. Now that is the definition of insanity.

Brilliant, just cheered me right up.


I did pretty much the same thing years and years ago. I was about 13 and decided it was time for a lock on the bedroom door (as you do). Clearly being an expert carpenter i decided in my wisdom that the best thing to use on the door was not the plain or chisel but my trusty old cheap as chips pen knife. As soon as i put some weight on the knife, voila, it cut into my fingers! So not only was i stupid enough to use my knife but i couldn't even figure out i should hold it the other way round so it didn't close on my fingers. D'oh!

No stupid as of yet today but it is still pretty early...........
