    I don't think I can pick one stupid thing b/c there seem to be so many...but here a few of the dumbest things I've done (or said).

    -When I was 16 I still thought that labor day was a holiday for pregnant women
    -When I was 16 I thought that during daylight savings time that we got an extra hour everyday, and not just the one day, and then when we change our clocks again, that we lost that hour...so technically it all evened out :lol:
    -I once put gas in the oil spot of someone else's lawnmower
    -I painted my body blue (arms,legs,face,neck) for spirit day at school, dyed my hair and everything, unfortunately the blue dye turned my hair green, and the poster paint I used on my body stained my pores :lol: And didn't learn my lesson and did the same thing the next two years, using red, and then black :lol:

    Now it's your turn...TOP MY STUPIDITY :lol:

    1. sitting on the 11 - stock - building's roof with my friends (I'd never do this again!)
    2. Dived 6 meters under the water to rescue a camera (well I'd do this again if I had to, but I'd do some breathing exercises before... the pressure on 6 meters down there is incredible blah... I almost fainted down there...)
    3. riding in the woods on my bike after a few beers... don't do it please :p too many trees .. definitely :)

    The most embarassing thing?
    I got really cross with someone whom I was supposed to be interviewing - they couldn't do a simple think like walk across the room to me when I called their name out.
    "What's the matter? Are you f*cking blind or something?"

    And then I saw his white stick.....

    Dumbest thing I've ever done? The most recent was asking my wife how I should answer this question.

    I explored unchartered territory on a sled, was having a great time until I was headed straight for a tree, the only thing that saved me was my ponytail!!! It got stuck in a branch and stopped me cold just before hitting the tree! The guys had to climb down and get me unstuck. : )
