One of the users, called U/beerbellybegone, made a lot of people laugh with his story. He was in New Zealand and was planning on going to a party with some girls from his hotel. So in order to impress the girls he decided to skip the ferry that would take them to the party, and swim about 1km instead. He arrived exhausted about three minutes after the ferry.

We have no words for this story. However, it seems it worked for u/raymond1138. "When I was 15, I dropped a heavy book on my head. It was this old dictionary. I laid down on the floor, held it over my head with my arms fully extended, and dropped it the foot and a half right onto my forehead. I guess I though it would show how tough I was? I was not tough. It sorta worked because I dated her until freshman year of college." he wrote.

Dating A gymnast makes you want to show off more, but that's not a good idea. "We go to a park and I see parallel bars that are designed for stretching but I'm convinced I can do a handstand on them because I'm awesome. She keeps insisting they are too far apart but I don't listen. Attempt said handstand, they were indeed too far apart so I collapse down jamming my chest past my hands and strain/tear all the ligaments holding my chest muscles to my breastbone." u/Mostlyamoron admitted.
2. Really Dangerous
One day, u/WickedZombie wanted to visit his girlfriend who was home alone. So even though his parents waned him that there would be a thunderstorm coming, he took his bike headed to her house, which was 3miles away. However, the storm started and it was so rough that after 30 minutes he was only halfway because the wind was really strong. Finally he made it to her house only to find her parents pulling into the garage. He ended up having her dad giving him an awkward ride home.
1. The Star Of The Day
The last user was at the age of 10 and he was having fun alone at the park, when he saw a group of girls about 15years old riding their bikes. He wanted to show off, so he started fooling around on the monkey bars, when he missed one bar and fell on the ground. Even though he was hurt all of the girls run to help him and took him to his home, too. So you can call it a success I guess.
