    That's awful :(
    But they should have contacted a doctor first assuming they didn't
    Hopefully eardrum damage, tinnitus, etc can be properly fixed by surgery or something in the future. :lol:
    Get well...

    I can't remember if they did when they found out since it was late at night when I told them, but they definatley did later.
    Also, the eardrum damage wasn't too bad, I just heard ringing in my ears once an area I was in got to a certain volume level.

    EDIT: I actually think the ear ringing thing happened since an earlier age, but I can't remember correctly, memories become obscured over time.

    I once stuck a knife up my Pokemon Red cart thinking it would somehow hack the game to give me Scyther. It's super low encounter and capture rate in the safari zone really pissed me off.

    I painted a wall with nail polish.
    I shaked many soda cans and would open it near people.
    I thought when I placed Movie CDs or Game CDs on the disc player at the car, the car would turn into a theater showing the movie or that it will become something like a PC.

    I used to think that when people got drunk, it was permanent. I didn't yet know the concept of becoming sober again.

    In 4th grade I finished a test early so my teacher gave me a staple removed and asked me to take down the bulletin board outside. I started using the staple removed (it was the kind like a chisel) to scrape away the glue holding the bulletin board to the wall. As other kids came out to help, I explained that we had to take down the bulletin board, and they looked confused but I was so confident they helped me. Eventually one went in to ask the teacher if I had any idea what I was doing, and she came out and was totally baffled. In the end it was so close to falling down we did take the whole board down and my parent bought a new one to put up.

    When I visited a year ago she said that she still tells her students about it.

    Oh! When I was little I put pussy willows in my nose to pretend like I was a walrus (I guess they wouldn't stick on my teeth) and inhaled one. A couple days later in a sneezing fit I blew it out. My parent found out and got worried I had the other one stuck up my other nostril, and so I went to the doctor and they looked around inside my nose with a camera. On the plus side I got to see the inside of my nose.

    Much like most kids do not know the meaning of the word stress, or the meaning of heartbreak, or the meaning of exhaustion (not that I as an old man know them either) then you can be forgiven for underestimating the extent of the coolness of GBAtemp.

    I was a stupid and angry child. I think the thing I regret most from my childhood was all the games I sold. Then again, even if I held onto them they probably would have gotten stolen with most of my other gaming collection a few years ago.

    Google Mik-mik

    Done? Okay let me start.

    I saw an advertisement about not using dangerous drugs. I thought that mik-mik was a drug andi proceeded to sniff it. Hurts like hell.

    That more GB on a graphics card means that the card is better.

    That's actually not stupid, it's not general knowledge.
    I used to have one of these electricity kits with bulbs cables and stuff, so I thought : Batteries are power source, wall plug too(I dont know how it is in english) ,so lets plug a battery powered bulb. Thank god the cables had plastic.

    I accidentally saw a fsitting porno when I was young. The female there looked like she was being massaged so when somebody was asleep, I would remove my pants and sit on their face.

    Age 5 or 6 (possibly younger), when I went grocery shopping with my mom, I'd see food/a toy or something and ask her to buy it, she'd reply "It's not on sale", as a child I interpret that as "It's not FOR sale", as in the store wasn't selling it.. So I'd put the item down and remain quiet.

    Funny enough, my mom's frugality has influenced me a lot, I hardly buy anything unless I get a discount :lol:
