Everyone has at least one story from their childhood when they majorly messed up.
Whether or not it keeps you up at night, it's fun to remember how dumb we all were before our frontal lobes were fully developed. A recent Reddit thread has people recounting the most messed up things they did when they were kids.
I thought it would be a great practical joke to bury a corn holder, small handle with two sharp prongs to hold corn on the cob, pointy side up in my yard and wait for someone to step on it. Of course, being a kid after all, I lost interest after a time and forgot. Sometime later in the summer, while walking bare foot, yes, I stepped on it. Fuck that hurt. Learned a valuable lesson about practical jokes. - phil8248
