    hey gbatempers, i was wondering if you guys (and girls) were also dumb as a kids

    had you did\thought something that now that you are older think it was really stupid?

    i am gonna give my example..

    when i was at 5th grade, we had a class similair to art, where we could build stuff and make stuff etc...
    so, the teacher wanted us to build a "game" (in the end everyone did board games)
    but migles, the dumb kid addicted to video games, i asked my group if we could make a gameboy..

    i thought i could make a gameboy just using a battery, lots of wires and some scrap electronics..
    some years later i remembered this and i feel so ashamed xD
    my schoolmates regected the idea because it would give a lot of work (but no one knew this was pratically impossible for us)

    1. Laying on a glass table, my parents were proud of me.
    2. Sticking a key in the electrical outlet
    3. Putting a lego in my mouth and nearly died from it
    4. Smashing a lightbulb in my hand. A lot of blood.

    There are more I did, but it would make it insanely NSFW.

    This was like 5 years ago but it's the first thing that comes to mind

    I once managed to trick the Vice Principal of my school when he found Minecraft in the school computers (in my storage to be exact). I told him I practice game mods during lunch time. Fucking idiots.

    What a cute and great idea! I would've been totally on your side (hope that is grammatically correct).

    And yes, I sure got many dumb things to remember. In art class we had the task to work a knive out of wood.

    I made a knive. A round knive.

    Today I can laugh about this, but when I got the rating (5, 1 is best and 6 is worst) I was not that happy anymore. It was real stupid - but it was art after all! :sleep:

    When I was little, I always wanted to become a cashier when I grew up because I thought they got to keep all the money inside the cashier.

    To be fair you technically CAN walk out the door with all the cash in the register, but probably just the once.

    I gave a shit. What a pointless waste of time that was, though on the other hand it did not really cost me anything I care about.

    I think most of my dumb moments correspond with my injuries.

    1. Jumped off a chair (pretending to be super man)
    Hairline fracture on arm.

    2. Somehow got my pinky stuck in a door... lots of
    skin/blood lost.

    3. Poked my own eye out playing basketball...
    Became a pirate for 2+ months

    4. Ripped the cartillage in my ankle *pop*
    Became a pirate again.

    Pretty dumb stuff

    • Used to think that actors that died in movies died in real life as a kid
    • Ran into a very clean glass partition, with enough force to shatter said partition, and break the framing of the partition.
    • Do backflips, landed on my head. ._.

    I thought that the sun and the moon rotated around the earth. I was 5 and there was going to be an eclypse. I thought that what happens when the sun and the moon meets :( turns out it happens when the Gods are angered.

    I used to think it was possible to extend your pregnant wife's delivery date. There are more, trying to remember...
