What's The Stupidest Thing You've Ever Done
I'm not sure this is the stupidest thing I've ever done, but it's the most recent example.

My wife is self employed so I have to do her tax withholding on my own. In the US, you pay federal, state and local estimated taxes quarterly. To manage this, I have separate accounts for her that I use as an escrow account. Because every now and again I need to do something really stupid, I wrote a very large check to the IRS and didn't move the money from the escrow account to cover it.

BOING! (That's the sound a check makes when it bounces).

Still can't believe I did that. Luckily it happened before the deadline of the 15th and I was still able to pay on time. But, man, was that dumb.

I was 14 years old, and I was showing off by going downhill while standing on the handlebars of my bike.

Hit a bump, flipped, broke my collar bone.

Never did that again.

Changed my major from pre-med/chemical engineering to nursing because of a guy....

I hope the sex was spectacular, at least.

RE: What's The Stupidest Thing You've Ever Done
I've done all kinds of stupid things...

Seriously too numerous to pick one as the MOST stupid.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That doesn't really answer the question though.

So, switching majors was the second stupidest thing?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

No, it really doesn't. Good eye.

RE: What's The Stupidest Thing You've Ever Done
It would take several hours to sift through all the dumb things I've done before I came up with the actual top, stupidest thing I've done. Let me get back to you on this.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
