Everybody experiences brainfarts that lead to less-than-intelligent behavior, and according to Reddit, a suprising number of them lead to people almost setting themselves on fire.
People shared the dumbest things they've ever done, and the schadenfreude is enough to make you feel like the most smartest, intelligentest person.

When I was younger my friend and I were messing around in my basement when we found some chemicals used in swimming pools and whatnot.
