I’m guessing there’s no way he didn’t go blind or get some serious damage due to this nonsense. Reply was his name Timmy or Ralphie? -certainly wasn’t a bb gun, nor did the poor kid have to dress up in a pink bunny suit. looks like the kinda stuff I did as a kid, long before the gray matter kicked in and “survival mode” became a mantra. Reply Wow. I remember doing some stupid things when I was younger that involved black powder, firecrackers and other things…But we always did (or at least tried to do) the stupid things Carefully. Hope this kid is ok and I hope his stupid buddies get their asses stapled to their kitchen floors. Reply I almost blew my hand off when I was a kid screwing around with fireworks, and I’m sure glad I never thought of making one of these silly rifles (I would have most likely made one and died). I hope he didn’t get hurt because that looked pretty bad. Reply Lucky. his head is still attached. Darwin was right! Reply Whoa… did that blow his hat off? Is anyone else picturing Tom the cat in blackface at the center of a daisy right now? Reply Nailed it. Let the idiots fend for themselves, only the strong will survive. Reply I lost count of how many times my older brother got me hurt with one of his smart ideas. I’m not sure if they were accidents or if he was really trying to kill me. 😉 Reply Let’s take a vote. Everyone who did something this stupid when they were young, please raise your hand. Or prosthetic. As the case may be. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
