When I was on active duty overseas in germany in 1984, we were preparing the billets for inspection.

Now everyone in the billet keeps all their crap in a "walllocker"
there's four of us sharign a room, and i decided to dust the tops off.

I figured why waste timegoing to get a ladder, so i pulled a chair over (fairly decent hardwood block thing) and stood on the backboard and climed up.

When coming down, i missed the backboard, and did a 4 foot drop, and straddled it. One of my roomies said :we heard this sound like something fell, then this weird whistling sound" (heh)

Needless to say i went on sickcall the next morning.
Whats wrong they ask?
I said My "privates" hurt ( not the wording i used, but this is a family forum)

They said ummmmm...ok, lets have a look...ummm...your going to go see the flight surgeon.

go to see him, he asks whats wrong, "my privates hurt" ok, lets see....hmm..this doesn't look normal...(no **** sherlock)...did you do anything to aggreviate them...ummm..well yeah i _guess_ you could say that.

turned out i had a hernia that had never bothered me, but after i "aggreviated" it, i ended up spending 3 days in frankfurt germany miltary medical hospital, and 3 months on convalescent leave/light duty.

Nowdays, if i need a ladder, i find a ladder, i don't care how long it takes. Use the right tool, for the right job

I once threw a huge family-sized can of beans onto a roaring campfire. I thought it would be funny.
Everyone ran off and took cover, waiting for the inevitable explosion. But the big bang never came, and finally we all stood around, daring each other to go try and get the can out of the fire, when KA-BOOM!
The explosion was so deafening, all we could hear was a high-pitched EEEEEEEEEEEE noise in our ears. And with the fire now out, we were in total darkness out there in the woods -- except of course for all the little red embers of fire in the trees, on our vehicles, AND ON OUR TENTS!
That one act of silliness ruined about five tents.
It was a hoot!

hmmm, which is worse..

1) Turned in my tree stand all PO'd to yell at a hunter STOMPING up behind me in the crunchy leaves to ruin my morning bow deer hunt. Yelled "Thanks a lo.."
(turned out to be the biggest 12-14 point "rocking-chair" buck I've ever seen !)
He was directly below my tree.


2) Stumbled upon a jake while trying to find a dry spot to wait out a rain storm and flopped down prone to try to sneak up on him. Unfortunately, I was in HydroFleece at the time and where I chose to drop... was a raspberry patch. I stuck there like velcro !

Looks like a tie.

(there are others....... but thats enough humiliation for one day)

and no, we won't discuss the day someone ArmorAll'd my motorcycle seat !

Just read my post,.........

Read my post in this forum about when I used to be the GREAT WHITE GOOF!!

I got more,....
Like when I used to weigh a hefty 425 lbs,....16 penny nails don`t hold that weight well, finding this out the hard way,....I fell to my conclusion and started hunting from the ground, but if you read the post I mentioned before, you`ll see that didn`t always work well for me either.

Later all

I was 16 when I pulled this stunt.
I was sittin in a tree stand bout 12 feet off the ground w/ my new (to me) 12 ga wingmaster. I was proud as a peacock of that gun..

I had shot it a few times to pattern the gun..hadnt bothered me fore. Musta been cause I was standin up..anyways..a small 8pt came right below my stand and stopped. He seemed twitchy. Apparently, so was I cause I took that shot straight down. When I opened my eyes I was on the ground layin straight on top that deer..sprawled on him like I wrestled him to the ground. Whata goober. Werst part was..ole Joe (the feller whos place I was huntin on) wont too fer off..and when he got there..that's the fool position he caught me in. What's the first thing that rascal did was take a picture. That dam thing stayed pinned on the wall of Towers store fer 3 years...good grief...

> The dumbest we ever done, huh ?? And you boys think what you did was dumb,, HA !! , Boys, grab a beer and have a set, let me tell you a story,,,,,

On my first trip over the mountain, this was in 73 I think, I rode darn near across Washington state on horse back. I spent 2 week's goin through the gorge, and it rain every day and I think it rained all day and all night those two week's,, I was headin east, ( what other way could I go, huh ? I had a big river to my right and a Canada to my left) After I got through the RR tunnel
and we won't even go there,,,, the light was red,, it was green on the other side when I started, so I had to get off the side of the mountain I was on,, There was no time to think bout it,, I got off the mountain, and it was DOWN to do it,, You ain't never,, even back here in Kentucky,, seen tree's so close together, callin this a knee knocker trail ain't even close to what it was,, ( now ,, be fore I go any farther, I am goin to tell you THIS IS NOT A BS STORY,, you asked,,, I'm tellin) after I get to the bottom there is a lake,, I ain't goin back up to the tracks, you can't sea that far ahead to know if another train is commin, and I didn't know the tunnel was there to start with, I had a map and was goin to a town for supplies,, But, they built a dam and the town was not there any more, they say it is, it's just under water,, anyway, I got to cross the lake, It's only bout 5 or 600 yd's so I cross it, My horse is tired and I know it, so I get a log, tie all my gear on it,, tie a bowline round his neck and we swim cross it, We get to the other side and we are really spent so I hobbled my horse, make camp, set up tent, got fire wood, make a fire, (after startin fire's in the gorge, I swear I can get rock's to burn, wet one's ) made grub and went to bed, I was spent,, Now comes the dumb part,, Durin the night my horse's snorting wakes me up,, then I hear CLUMP,CLUMP CLUMP, and it's gettin closer, I am tired, wet and not in a good mood, and NOT thinkin to well,, so, like a real DUMMY, I stay in my tent, in my bag and just stick my arm out the door and fire off my 45,, a colt 45, I can't hear nothin now, and I get real scared, I just figured out what a dumb thing I did, That was way passed dumb,, But the Lord look's after what ?? saddles tramp's and horse's,, I don't think that's how the sayin goes, but it will do for now,, I figure by the sound , it was a bear,, a big one, and lucky for me it left, I NEVER did or ever will, do that again,, I remember that feelin,, always will, Like I said, that was my first time, and I learnt a lot on that one, I don't think that was the dumbest thing I did on that trip, But it's the only on I will admit to,,

Actually Im not sure that was the dumbest thing, might have been ice skating on a snow covered pond, age 12, fell and compound fracture left leg, cast from hip to toe 120 days: or taking a 5 $ bet I could walk 4 blocks down hill from school 2nd grade with my jacket zipped up over my head, landed in a ditch , 14 stitches to the head; or using those new scissors my mother told me to leave alone, age 7, cut the end of my trigger finger off, dont remember how many stitches: or setting my brothers #2 trap and springing it with my fist, age 8, just swelling, no stitches but had to get the neighbor to get the darn thing off me: getting my hand caught in the wringer of the old washing machine, age 9, as I remember it those things HURT: rolling my first jeep over , age 16, only had it two weeks and saved to buy it for two years- was doing something stupid but I aint gonna tell: playing tag on a 250 Suizuki motorcycle after dark, chasing another bike through a neighbors yard, forgot about that clothesline, OUCH, my neck still hurts; then there is the time I drove my Terra Jet over a mining high wall after dark, should a got those lights fixed; working at the airport and scalped myself on a cargo bin door 38 stitches, No, the dumbest was teaching the ex to shoot ( she almost shot my son) Daddy always said: "If you are going to be dumb you gotta be tough" and " What doesnt kill you will make you stronger"

After the bear had decended the tree after I yelled at it, I said S.-O.-B. out loud, and back up the tree it came after me. ( I knew then to keep my mouth shut) eh ?
Thats only one in many, we wouldn't be human if we didn't make some DUMB mistakes in life

One pretty spring day after school I was headin to join my buddies for a game of ball. I didn't wana be late... on my 10spd...really throwin it side to side as I was pickin up speed down a newly paved street. Forgot that the pavers hadn't done a thorough job leveling the man hole covers.

Front tire caught the 2" edge of that pavement while I was throwing that bike from left to right...caught that trace the cover...turned it even sharper.

It happened so fast....I don't remember....just going by what a neighbor lady told me...Figure I was only goin10-15mph...but the torque I was putting down...anyway..

One sec I was on the bike and then she said "it was like the bike's front tire froze and the whole thing flipped forward and you hit your face on the pavement.

heh....road rash ain't a joke.

Still got the scar on my face from that one.
