Taking a dumb dare, chugging a blender full of something truly disgusting, swallowing spicy peppers, "The Cinnamon Challenge"- the power of peer pressure is strong. Even if you've grown out of the desire to "look cool," sometimes other people denying you can do something is enough of a motivation to dive into something incredibly dumb.
So, when a recent Reddit user asked, "What is the stupidest thing you've done just to show you could do it?" dare-devils and risk-takers everywhere were ready to share the mistakes they've made in the name of their ego and pride.
Chugged way too much Apple cider vinegar.....huge mistake. - dhensonjazz
In grade school, maybe age 11 or 12, I had these cheap jeans. I figured out that I could flex my belly and pop the button open, found this funny and guy friends in class got a laugh too. One of them turns to a girl, hey girl checkout what OP can do; I flex my belly and let out a huge fart while the button popped open. She turned away, my buddy laughed, and i never did this trick again - brother_meowzone
