So what is something you have done or tried and it just didn't turn out anywhere near what you had planned? One instance for me was in school and I hate reading....(im well aware of the ironic nature of that comment being on a forum) but as part of the class you have to read a book once a month and take a computer test on it. Instead of reading, I had searched through the list of books we had to take and saw Jumanji was on there. Having seen the movie several times (and noting I was like 9 when I thought this was a good idea) I took the test and failed horribly...the teacher then went on to explain to the whole class to note books and movies often differ
Another that comes to mind, when we were even younger we (me, brother and sister) figured if your in a square box and go down the stairs in it, you never hit the stairs and will go down smoothly with no issues.....not so much
Well, let's see... I once accidentally lit my hand on fire while doing an experiment with bug spray and discovering that the lid had leaked onto my hand. More recently, I had climbed to the top of a rock in a cave before realizing that I had no way to turn around and no easy way to climb back down.
When I was A kid I went down this hill on a scooter while it was raining with my brother next to me, I was just about to crash when my brother shouted "Jump" so I jumped, at that moment the scooter wheel got stuck in a grate and I went over the handle bars and removed half of my lip on the road.
I then got home and was given half a Panadol (pain medication that is really quite weak) and a band-aid. -.-
What I learnt from this is that Scooter brakes don't work when they are wet.
