i done something really stupid this afternoon so i thought about starting a thread cause i know im not the only one. thought it would be kinda cool to see what everybody else has done and who knows it might just help somebody else out in the future . cause you have been there and done that . so come on tell us what dumb thing you did and probably knew better .lol

i will start it off.... the fan was dragging on the outside unit on my central h/a so i take the cover of and lube it up get it working smooth again. so put everything back together and start it up works great ! should have stopped there but me being a perfectionist i noticed some screws missing on the lid that must have vibrated out over time. so i find some up and start putting them in get to the last one and bout half way in i hear this hissing noise so i start screwing it back out and yep screwed right into one of the copper tubes on the coils

so there's mine so come on and share yours !!

Building a wood stove out of a propane tank tonight and wore goggles while using the saw and grinder. Took them off to get a better look, blew away the shavings and filled my right eye with metal.

was working on someones kitchen sink once and took off the p trap from under the kitchen sink and dumped the water from it back into the sink, and since the trap was gone the dirty water dumped all over the inside of the cabinet.

The other day I was at my house and went over the fluids on my brute. Everything was good except the oil in the motor was a little low. I added a little, put the dipstick in and started it for a sec. Turned the bike off. Pulled it and it was still a little low. Added a little more and started it....whoops, forgot the dipstick! That stuff was all over the wall, the 4 wheeler, the ceiling. Good thing I was in my shed.

Last time I remember something stupid was when I had my raptor 660. It was right after Hurricane Katrina and my bike got water in it. I brought the bike in my mom's garage to get it going. Flushed the motor, fixed the bad starter solenoid and started it up. Fired up great and idled fine but it blew out black water from the exhaust....needless to say, the exhaust was pointed at my mom's white garage wall. Took a few coats to cover that up....

Taken from this thread. www.mudinmyblood.net...870&highlight=STUPID

Dam I hate to see this subject pop up again.

One day at work I was grinding an edge on a small piece of metal with a hand held angle grinder. I had the metal in one hand and the grinder in the other. The metal got caught and went flying and it pulled the ring finger of my left hand into the grinding wheel pretty much removing the tip of my finger. I went to the nurses station to get a bandage on it. When I came back to my work station a co-worker asked me what happened. I told him, "Probably the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life" and proceeded to show him how I ground the tip of my finger off. I picked up the same piece of metal, the same angle grinder and was giving him a demonstration of how it happened.................. the metal got caught in the grinder and I ground the tip of my middle finger off while he was standing there watching. I looked and him and smiled and said "Ok, make that the SECOND stupidest thing I've ever done in my life."

Me and some guys were floating down the river one summer , a older couple were fishing when they lost their oars, I stood up in the canoe to toss them a oar , about the time the oar left my hand my buddie screams , THEY DONT FLOAT!!!! ,who makes a oar that dont float ? that would be a smart thing to do ... Needless to say we were all stranded then LOL

I just told a girl at work that she looked like a model. A Lane Bryant model.

But this is really her.

I turned my back on a running table saw with the guard up. I had way to much on my mind that day to be using it in the first place. I won't be repeating that mistake. Gotta keep what fingers I got left.

Bruin, that is bad, lol.
