Hi guys,

I once put WD40 on the rims of my bike to stop them screaming everytime I used them..... well...... they didn't make a noise after, at least!  Smile

I'm sure, being so many stupid people here, there must be some funny stories to be told.

Opened up this thread!

Actually Dan. I did somethign similar. Seemed that when I applied the break on my bike, they would make all kinds of noise, so my stupid ass hosed them down with WD-40 as well. Needless to say, the noise stopped.....and so did the function of the breaks.

I was doing a 'runner' from a taxi, and fell down some stairs whilst pi$$ed and knocked out my front teeth. Dentists bill was about 3 times more than the taxi fare.  Nuts

I keep thinking I should write into FHM true stories with that one.  Smile

Oh and on further note, I also eliminated break squeaking with WD40. Unlike KROC and EGGD, I had the sense to test the bike out in an open, and unused parking lot, allowing the bike plenty of room to naturally slow down. I pressed the brakes and eventually I got the friction needed for safe stopping, without the squeaking. It works, but like when you install a new engine on an aircraft, test it out in a safe place, don't press it into service!

1989.

Decided I needed a change of career.

Spent all the money I had in the world on law school.

I could have spent the same money at Embry Riddle, and now I'd be "Captain."

Oh well. D'oh!

Rode the roof of my friend's mustang at 60 MPH on Sunrise Highway

Jumped a train and rode it 20 miles, at 55 MPH, while standing on the walkway of the engine and holding onto the handrails for life. (all to make dinner for dad's bday. that's love)

Too many vulgar chick stories.

I too have a stupid WD-40 story, though it wasn't brakes on my bike.

One winter many years back I decided that my GT snowracer wasn't fast enough. So what do I do? Give the bottom of the ski's a nice coating of WD40. It was MORE than fast enough. At the bottom of the hill I tried to turn but I was going so fast the part of the front ski that's curved upwards snapped off and hit me in the face, then with no upwards curve on the front ski it planted into the snow. GT snowracer abruptly stopped, I however did not.

On 2 April 1999, I played striptease with the passengers on a near full Flight West Embraer 120...

It was about 9pm at night, I was flying from Townsvile to Cairns on a Friday night. I was the only passenger to board at Townsville, but the flight originated in Mount Isa and from memory the flight was very busy {probably only about 4 seats empty}.

Anyway, it was raining, and as the walk to the EM120 was quite long, I got a lift on one of the ground service equipment, and the driver gave me a raincoat so I didn't get wet. However, me being a bit larger that the average ground crew, was not totally accommodated by the jacket, and I did get a bit wet.

We pulled up at the aircraft, I climbed the airstairs, and in the galley/front of the cabin I took off the raincoat...however my shirt became tangled in the jacket and came half off, and stuck around my face...I dare say the passengers would've gotten a great view of a great body...blush

It was funny though, and I have a feeling a lot of therapists would've made quite a lot of money off traumatised passengers from flight YC7072...

When I was young I put a screw on one of my fingers as a ring but I couldn't get it off. When I went to the hospital 5 surgeons together tried to break it off. It took ages and it hurt a lot.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I Rode my bike without functioning brakes when I was young.

I remember one Tree very very well.

I also tried to jump over those single cable wired fence with wooden posts. Although these were about 2 feet in height, my foot got caught on the wire as I leaped and I fell face first onto the sharp, dry, prickly grass infront of many girls in my grade. Certainly embarassing as it looked like a cat scratched the hell outta me by all those scratches/cut marks all over my face.

I think I also popped a zit that time too. youch!

Well, I tested my WD40 rims on the road outside my house, of course they didn't work too good but i still managed to stop. However, my brakes have never been the same  Sad.

i also once, went to collect a football that had run down a small hill on my bike. I rode pretty fast and when I tried to brake, the back wheel just skidded without stopping me. So I slammed on the front brake, got catapulted over the handlebars into a thornbush before my bike landing on my head. It was pretty funny, and didn't hurt too much  Big thumbs up

Years ago I got a new bike, and I was going quite fast down a road when I wanted to stop.

For some unknown reason I forgot about the brakes, so I stuck my arm out and grabbed onto a lamp-post. Ouch.

The bike carried on going and I hit a brick wall. Big thumbs up
