Ok....if you are really a guy, then all of you at some point have done something really pointless, and moderately destructive or at least counterproductive. We can't help it. This is what us guys do. Since we all have violent tendancies inherent in our nature, we find a creative outlet, and do these harmless, albeit extremely immature acts to relieve the tension. It sure beats burning a house down or something. Here are some of my proud achievements from over the years:

Videotaped myself dropping a microwave oven off the top of a second story house.

Smashed an old TV set with a sledgehammer just to watch the screen implode

Set stuffed animals on fire

Doused a barbecue grill with gasoline, and ignited it.

Put firecrackers inside model airplanes and blew them up

Called taxis and pizza deliveries to my neighbors

Sprinkled gun powder on the ground, and ignited it to watch it burn

Hurled Coke cans from my backyard over the house to watch them blow up in the street

Built and used a "spud gun" to launch potatoes

Put firecrackers inside beer or soda cans to watch them jump into the air when the lit firecracker detonates.

Launched road flares into a pumpkin


Things I'd like to do:

Drive a car into a lake

Push a porcelain toilet off the top of a second story roof.

Buy two old junk heap cars and with my buddy, drive them into each other.

Buy an old car, drain the oil, and see how long the engine will run.

Probably:

Drank half a bottle of Vodka, then filled it with methane. Then stuff the end with a paper towel, lit it and threw it into a disused tunnel  Smile

the noise echo's like nothing on earth!

Also i used to drop my son on his head when he were just a toddler.

Great post, Matt D!

I made some home made explosives in Russia - everyone did, it was awesome. How about this one - I filled a condom with a lot of water and dropped it from 14th floor!

- Made water bombs and threw them in school.

- Set off some firecrackers in school.

- Sprinkled my neighbors drying laundry with some nasty ass stuff that I made myself (hehehe, that was awesome.)

- Took a picture of the toilet

- Called someone in Moscow and woke them up Big grin

- Lit my fart on fire and burned my hand  Big thumbs up

- Decided to check if bees really do sting after they're killed - they do  Sad

- Some more stuff... Big grin



Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

I also smashed a tv just to see what would happen.

Today I put a "Used" sticker on the toilet seat in my dad's office.

I love putting fire crackers in glass bottles and blowing them up.

We shot BB guns at model airplanes. Each guy had his planes and we shot at each others. The last one with a plane that could still fly would win. Of course we had to determine if the plane were still air-worthy if it were real.

We caught several catfish; brought them back to the city and dumped them in a neighbor's neglected pool

We threw tomatoes and dirt-clods at passing cars (and of course, snowballs).

more to come, if I can remember...

sheesh, am I the only more or less normal one?

I did set model airplanes alight, but that was in a reenactment of a groundstrike against their field  Smile
I had no more room for them, and wanted to have some fun with them before throwing them away  Smile

Also shot mice with a rifle. Not for fun, but because we could of course not put poison or mousetraps in the chickencoop...

For the rest, maybe living is pointless. Who knows until it is over?

Shut off the electricity to my downstairs neighbors apartment because they think they are musicians with talent and that the world should hear them play. (they aren't and it shouldn't).

You sound like you'd get along great with my brother Matt.

My list of things isn't quite as long I don't think, but I've been known to do my share. Guess I don't act my age. Yep, I've done the whole pizza delivery thing and sent cabs to people too. Shot up a computer monitor with a rifle, opened up oreos and stuck them all over my brother's car (okay, this one was very recent I admit it!), Go to the Swifty Serve convenience store because very bizarre things always happen there (I think it's a portal to another universe), throw wadded up napkins onto my mom's bookshelves and try to get them behind all the books and crap, drive around with a troll doll in the sunroof of my car. I'm sure there's more, but this should be enough to prove that I'm a total dufus.

I guess it's not just a guy thing.

I used to go to fairs and get a bunch of bumper stickers and put them on cars in the parking lot.

I also had fun playing with real looking toy guns on the side of the highway!
