  • Ideas that sound COOL at the time, but after they happen...You cringe.

    Some guy at my husband's work got a tattoo...

    OF THE DEATHEATER MARK ON HIS LEFT FOREARM.

            Some could say the same thing about anyone with Disney tattoos. :P

              My friend Jessi got a naked pinup girl tattooed on her back, all tied up in bondage gear, about 10 years ago. She now has 2 kids, is 30, and covers her tottoo at all times. :botox:

                My hubby waited till he was 50 to get his first tattoo so that he would be sure of what he wanted. I wonder when this guy is 50 if he will still think that it is cool to have the deatheater mark on his arm.

                  At least it will represent what was huge at that time he got it. He'll remember the Harry Potter craze forever now because of his tat. Witness to his kids that he was alive during it all.

                    I think it'd probably be pretty cool to have a smaller Dark Mark somewhere. But certainly not on the forearm. Maybe higher up the arm or on a shoulder.

                    I know a nice guy who has tats on his forearms. I felt bad for him for a while 'cause he used to be a Certified Flight Instructor (he's on a regional airline now! yay!) and had to wear the long-sleeved version of the shirts the school made the instructors wear. Of course, they were black shirts. And, there's no A/C in those Cessnas. Brutal!

                    It was funny to watch when the Cessna barely had the wheels on the ground, he would immediately pop the side window and practically hang outside to try and cool off. :lol:
                    "But every night, when it gets dark
                    and the stars come out,
                    I'll look up on her behalf.
                    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                      Hey there Sunnygirl! I guess that's a perfect example of: "D'OH!!! What was I thinking?!?!?!"

                      If she feels that bad about the tatoo, then maybe she might want to consider laser removal of the thing. She must have been a real wild one in her earlier days!

                        I tattooed a black band with a pink heart on my wedding ring finger... I'm still married (happily!), but I didn't think about wearing my real rings on top of it. Now, I had to have my Hubby buy me a big band to go with my origional ring so that it doesn't look like my real rings are cheap and are staining my finger! :/ Ohh well, more diamonds for me!

                        To live would be an awfully big adventure.

                          This isn't about tatoos, but college prank gone bad.

                          I thought it would be really funny to put a serious stink into the air of the central library at the University of California. I worked in the library while attending school there so I had more access to the facility than the usual student. Lets just say the prank worked far, far better - terribly better - than I could ever have hoped.

                          The liquid that is used to give odor to natural gas is incredibly concentrated. One drop is enough to give scent to about 600,000 cubic feet of gas. It only requires a simple proceedure to change that scent from the usual smell of gas into the odor of rotting flesh.

                          I whipped up about 1/4 of a cup of the odor of rotting flesh compound and dumped it ALL into the ventilation system in the basement. Soon the muffled sounds of screams and running feet reached me in the library basement. So I went to the upper floors to investigate.

                          People were desperately scrambling to get out of the library like rats leaving a sinking ship. The stench was beyond nauseating - it was horrific. People were vomiting and clutching at their faces trying in vain to stop the odor. The stench was so powerful it burned eyes and sinuses and clung like ink to one's clothing, hair and skin.

                          My momentary glee vanished as I saw the actual results of my prank. So I did the manly thing and ran away from the library. And swore my co-conspirator to a lifetime of silence.

                            If by "cringe" you meant fall to the ground screaming in agony, then this would qualify. It wasn't my prank, but apparently someone thought it would be brilliant to whack a molotov cocktail with a golf club.

                              That right there is why people shouldn't be allowed to drink until they're too old to move so that they can't do anything that stupid.

                              Or maybe they were sober.

                              I remember once when I was pretty young (11? 12?) I was hanging out with some friends and they suddenly thought it would be hilarious if I pretended to flirt with some kid next door that they didn't like. (What kind of idea is this?) So, being an idiot, I did so - I think invited him to play baseball with us or something.

                              The thing is, there was no payoff, at all. He just got called home by his mum and I went back to my friends, having sullied my good name for no reason. I felt like a dope afterwards, and the kid probably just thought I had a crush on him. Dur.
                              You don't need me or my ham, cheese, cheese, cheese, tomato, cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches. And cheese.
