Be the first person to walk out on the ice.

Eat lutefisk. I didn’t know what it was til after I tried it. Wouldn’t have mattered, it was icky.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’ve never been smart enough to stop at once, usually I try things at least twice to be sure.

ucme's avatar

Bend over in the prison showers!! Not that i’ve ever been you understand. It was, as asked, the first thought that popped into my mind :¬)

Deja_vu's avatar

Eel is gross. Never again, will I ever eat eel. That came to my mind first.

Frenchfry's avatar

@ucme Oh! Heavens. Your mind is marvelous wonder.

Pour down my gullet 5 shots of Screech followed by 3 “Tallboys” of Alexander Keith’s dark ale.

You get a certificate when you drink that Screech. It is that potent, folks.

GQ! Marry or eat Indian food. Both almost did me in.

janbb's avatar

@Austinlad I guess the deal is off then. I love Indian food.

I will never stick another bobby pin in an electrical outlet again.Of that I am sure ;)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I thought of one: Stick my finger on a hot bright orange cigarette lighter from a car. The old kind they had in the dash. @lucillelucillelucille I actually tried both sides of an outlet with a finishing nail. How’s that for bright?

Austinlad's avatar

@janbb. I’ll keep an open mind. Unfortunately, my tummy is more stubborn.

Deja_vu's avatar

Laugh when eatting spaghetti.

If I ever again think “I bet I couldn’t even cut myself with this thing if I tried.” I will not try.

I shave my legs in the shower, just with soap, and my hair is relatively thin, blond and sparse so I give myself a pretty casual, rapid going over and if I miss a spot it doesn’t really matter too much because you can’t really see it but with the “casual, rapid going over” method I normally end up with a few nicks and cuts. Anyway, I bought a Venus razor when they first came out and used it for a couple of months and never cut or nicked myself even once. It was quite an impressive little razor it seemed. So…. well, one morning that thought popped into my head and I drew the razor sideways across my calf because I thought, as I mentioned, “I bet I couldn’t even cut myself with this thing if I tried.” I was wrong. I’m an idiot. What can I say?

Go on a rollercoaster. I went on one once, it was a bit of an old rattler, and I seriously thought I was going to fall out and die. Put me off for life.

MeinTeil's avatar

It’s going to be amusing when a wrap my unit in foil then go in.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Attempt to ride a bike up over a curb. The bike stopped; I didn’t. Ended up with a swelling the size of a goose egg in the nether-region for a looong time.

erichw1504's avatar

I will never snort Kool-Aid powder again. Not a pleasant feeling.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@erichw1504 I have to ask. Why would you try that even once?

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Putting on a pair of rollerblades, grabbing a leash, and taking a very excited (and strong) puppy on a “walk”. Ow.

row4food's avatar

Smoke a cigarette.

gailcalled's avatar

Ride a roller coaster.

Seek's avatar

Go snorkeling in jellyfish-infested waters. Ouch.

erichw1504's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I was young and stupid during a bus ride home from middle school.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr: And yet, here you are!

erichw1504's avatar

Eating all the salt left at the bottom of a bag of pretzels at once. It’s actually not that fun and almost made me puke.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@erichw1504 I guess we’re allowed a few stupid ones at that age. Congrats on the marriage.

Seek's avatar

@JilltheTooth Oh, they were little jellyfish. More annoying than painful. But there were a friggin’ billion of them, and I’m not an accomplished swimmer.

harple's avatar

Bridge-swinging! (It’s like bunjee jumping, only not…) I hated it! (But glad I did it…)

muppetish's avatar

Go twenty-four hours without eating (and only sleeping a couple hours.) I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I wasn’t even properly hydrated.

Seek's avatar

That reminds me, @muppetish… I need to get back on a fasting schedule. I was so much healthier when I did a 24 hour fast every week. Best thing about that old religion, actually.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Getting a root canal.

Aster's avatar

Ride a rollercoaster or the Caterpillar.

Frenchfry's avatar

I just love you guys. I think I smiled through the whole thing. Crazy and lovable. @erichw1504 and Congrats on the wedding.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Salad dressing. My Dad had me try salad with the dressing and i almost puked.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@daytonamisticrip What kind of salad dressing was it?

daytonamisticrip's avatar

No clue but it was nasty, and it was also years and years ago.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

Same as @poofandmook . Never again, ouch.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@gailcalled ah come on roller coasters are fun.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr : I meant the Fluther thing…

Trillian's avatar

When I was six I put my pinky in the pencil sharpener at school thinking that it would make my finger pointy.
I never did it again.

Seek's avatar

@JilltheTooth d’oh! Leave it to me to totally miss a very witty joke. Oi.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr : It’s all cool, not much jellyfish threat on Vulcan

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@JilltheTooth Good one. :) @Seek_Kolinahr It went over my head for a minute as well.

Being born. It must’ve been traumatic as I don’t even remember it

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Pick up what appeared to be a dead spider in the swimming pool. Little SOB bit the crap out of me. Hurt worse than a bee sting.

erichw1504's avatar

I will never bring a dead mouse home to my parents again.

For some reason, when I was about 8, I found a dead mouse out in the yard and decided to pick it up, go inside and show my parents. Wasn’t a good idea.

DominicX's avatar

Eating tuna (it’s just plain gross, sorry) and going on a roller coaster (scary as fuck and a completely unpleasant experience).

janbb's avatar

@DominicX I imagine eating tuna and then going on a roller coaster would be even worse!

erichw1504's avatar

@janbb OR… Eating tuna WHILE going on a roller coaster!

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@DominicX If you fear roller coasters i can only imagine how scary sky diving would be.

wilma's avatar

Sleep in a moose’s bed, (nest) whatever, just don’t do it.

perspicacious's avatar

Snow ski. My instructor called me Lucille Ball on skis.

kenmc's avatar

@DominicX Ahahaha the gay guy doesn’t like tuna. XD

I’ll never do cocaine again. I don’t understand how that was supposed to be fun.

free_fallin's avatar

I will never let a blind-folded person cut my hair again. I was 16. It was a dare. My friend chopped off about 4 inches scattered throughout my hair. It was horrible! Luckily my hair was super long then and it didn’t matter too much.

Ignore my gut instinct.

Aster's avatar

@pearls the guys on tv always love parachuting?

pearls's avatar

@Aster I’m scared to death of heights. When flying I always sit in an aisle seat so that I can’t look down.

lillycoyote's avatar

@pearls. Yeah. I did the skydiving thing and the first 3 trips were just amazing and exciting and incredible and then, on the 4th one I just all of a sudden became absolutely terrified. I though what the hell am I doing? The is really just scary as shit; this is insane. I’m jumping out of airplanes and I have no clue what I’m doing; and after the one I never, ever did it again.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Are you talking about ketamine? That’s nuts. Really, you don’t ever want to do that again. Or maybe you mean something else; or maybe not.

Seek's avatar

@lillycoyote I don’t know, that cereal really sucks.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr All I know is that Special K is either a reference to the cereal or a slang term for the drug Ketamine. It could mean other things too, but I am way too middle aged and naive and so totally out of the loop on that sort of thing. I don’t eat the cereal and I have been out of the habit of procuring illegal drugs for a very, very, very long time. So I suppose I will have to wait for @Simone_De_Beauvoir to return and clarify things, should she choose to do so. And if you’re just messing with me, I’ll recover. I have a very thick skin, except for the very thin sections. :-)

DrasticDreamer's avatar

I will never attempt to shave my legs again while drunk. Ow.

I will never do an 8th of ‘shrooms again. Ever.

BratLady's avatar

Eat Calamari~ I’d rather eat dirt.

kenmc's avatar

@BratLady Calamari is one of my favorite foods.

DominicX's avatar


To be fair, I’ve never tried calamari, but the idea of it sounds disgusting.

kenmc's avatar

Shit’s fucking awesome, @DominicX. Trust me.

poofandmook's avatar

@DominicX: the best way to try it is to make sure there are no pieces that make it obvious where it came from. Once you realize how delish it is, you won’t mind so much if you come across one.
