    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    The biggest slap in the face was that it was only the crappy game that was mostly undamaged: Sega Superstars Tennis. Halo 3: ODST, CoD4 and Sega Megadrive Ultimate Collection all had cracked up cases.

    Ah, another failure. Today I should have been working hard. Erm, yeah, about that work I should have done...

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    We have old furniture down in my basement living room, and the couch is actually quite comfy. So my friend and I were drinking and playing Guitar Hero. We were tired of always playing guitars on co-op Expert, so we started trying singing on Expert. Hey now, we were drinking, 'tis my right!

    So we were doing Bohemian Rapsody, and according to the game, it was the hardest song on singing. For whatever strange reason, I kept barely surviving while my friend kept failing a few times, so I had to "revive him" by not fail for a couple of seconds. It was quite intense and extremely funny. I tried to live myself into the song a little more to hopefully do better for us to survive the song, so I went up and stood on the couch. I have done that a couple of times before, but this time suddenly it made a sound, and the pillow sank a considerable amount down. I was trapped in quicksand!

    I checked it out, and one of the metal pieces to hold up the seat had one of its ends stuck down into the ground. I can still sit in it without noticing too much difference, though I do notice that it feels slightly different, as if sitting a tad lower than before. I also hear some squeeky sounds sometimes when sitting in it. I never felt so safe~

    So, sitting in the couch and playing Left 4 Dead 2 on my laptop, having this subconscious feeling of falling through the couch and down to the floor is scary sometimes. It is the only seat in the couch I can play in without difficulties due to the right sofa arm (mouse). This all always makes me look back to when I had to "go on stage to perform", that was so stupid of me. I am a lot heavier than I think, and combining that with the fact that the sofa was really old, I should have known to just sit. Me too silly. ^__^;

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    I did this one recently last month, me thinks. This was at work. It was around the time the weather was getting really cold, and there was ice patches here and there. (By the way, I work at Walmart if you were curious).

    I had just got through helping with making a bale because the compactor was full. Thats where the store throws the empty cardboard away and it gets recycled. Anyways...I just got through with that, and I was about to haul it out the double doors and take it outside of the building. I had made it half way there and one of my friends decided to help push it out too... So he decides he wants to jump on top and lay on it and do the superman pose and right at that time I slid on an ice patch and fell flat on my back while the bale/pallet was determined to mow me over and my idiot friend doing the super man pose on top of it didn't even noticed. I somehow quickly rolled outta the way in time, and fell pretty dumb about it afterwards. Especially with David (that was my idiot friend) was laughing his a$$ off about it for the rest of the night.

    This doesn't include the time I had my tooth knocked out by a jar of spaghetti sauce either! I think that store is out to get me! It attcked me I swear! :S

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    Bloody, I sympathise with you there! Inanimate objects always have a tendancy to.. explode..

    Which brings me to my next point. It isn't just my brother who is able to get water from electrical sockets. We were on Holiday in Kiln Park a few years ago. It had been a record storm on the coast so the next day it was still ****ing down with rain. Unable to go out, I sat on the couch and flicked through some tv. Unhappy with terrestrial tv, I switched on my XboX 360 (Yes, I go with it everywhere.) I was playing Naruto. Suddenly, the game cuts to a cut-scene mid-way through the battle. Confused, I sit and watch. Sasuke (emo-boy) was walking through the forest and Orochimaru jumped out at him. The screen's colours became muted, then psychadelic! Orochimaru's face was plastered on the screen, doing a continuous scream with his tongue hanging out! Freaking out, I go to take the power cable out. Safe at last... or was it?

    Water came trickling out of the electrical socket! The next time I plugged in my 360, I had the red ring of death ._.

    I still blame Orochimaru to this very day for breaking my old 360!

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    Another one, since I've read so many and haven't posted any in awhile...

    Last spring I decided to try taking up Parkour. It was going pretty well for awhile until I decided to try vaulting a chest-height handrail (the other side was only a foot or so down and the ground was soft, so there wasn't any real risk). Despite having done this particular kind of leap many times before, I screwed it up and my nuts landed full-force on the rail, followed by me falling over rather ungracefully on the other side. Hurt bad enough that I had to stop practicing for a few days.

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    lol That video was epic! I'm still laughing!

    The "Orochimaru thing" sounds scary. I never heard of water pouring out of wall sockets, thats kinda cool, and weird at the same time.

    Sorry about your fellows, Dr. Killjoy. Sounds painful. :S

    RE: In which brave people confess their epic failures

    Time to dig up this dusty old thread, which will hopefully result in others posting their recent (and old) failures. I'll start us off by confessing one. Well, for a while I've been living at my parents' house. From time to time my mother becomes rather obsessive about tidying, and offers to tidy a few things in my room. I usually prefer to tidy my room myself since I can be obsessive about how things are ordered. But today I accepted the offer since she's quicker at it than me, and a friend is probably coming over tomorrow too.

    There was a setback, though. Well, I'm a male in my twenties, and I ordered something from the internet that could be considered NSFW, which arrived in the post this morning. Since I've successfully avoided any awkward discussions of sex and managed to hide any questionable internet browsing since I was a young teen, I didn't consider it too much of a problem. I thought of a good place and hid it pretty well. However, I made a grave error. I was so focused on hiding the item, I forgot that the invoice for the item was in clear view as I hadn't moved it and left the room.

    After watching some television downstairs, it finally dawned on me as I was walking up the stairs. And indeed, I saw my bed was made with the invoice placed neatly in the middle. Without a doubt, being as nosy as she is, she read it. It could have been worse and I haven't seen her since (she left my room once she was done and has gone out for the night), but still...

    Oh man.... I don't think I'd be able to confront my mom after that for a little while XD
