Yes ma'am, I did. and from a real live plant too...

All joking aside, I stayed inside for over a week afterwards. It hurt like he@ and I'll never go outside again without it (or my shades of course )

Probably making a petrol bomb when I was a boy and getting my eyebrows burned off. Then there was making a muzzle loading cannon out of old pipe, pouring gunpowder out of fireworks down the muzzle, then loads of nails and nuts and bolts, then firing it at an old abandoned car. Now that WAS fun.

A friend of mine in UK went one better. He decided to make black powder from raw ingredients in his dads green house. He had made about a pound of the stuff when his mum called him in for lunch, he left the black powder on the bench along with his dads prize tomatoes. He's eating his lunch when there was a huge explosion, all of the glass in the green house shattered send shards of razor sharp glass in all directions, the wood frame of the green house was just a pile of sticks, and his dads prize tomatoes ended up with the glass.

One of the neighbours thought that the IRA were playing silly buggers again and called the police, there were armed coppers, the Flying Squad and all manner of local old bill along with fire trucks and ambulances all along the street. The cops soon found the culprit and dragged him off to the cop shop and began interrogating him why he was making bombs. After a few hours they relalised he wasn't a trainee terrorist, but experimenting. The old bill read him the riot act and kept him in the cells over night to teach him a lesson. I think his dad grounded him for life. Thankfully no one was hurt or even killed, but thinking about it that was funny.

His mum said "I thought I was back in 1940 during the blitz."

This is funny...Wow, Brit.. He's lucky no one was hurt. I'm sure his dad did ground him for life. I would for sure, but not certain it would've lasted.


I've done a lot of stupid stings AND awkward situations. When we look back on them, they're funny, but usually not at the time.
