Everyone wants to look cool, especially if they are young and want to impress the people around them. Unfortunately, we often do the stupidest things to look cool.
A user asked the forum, “What is the stupidest thing you have ever done to try to be cool?”
Here are some of the funniest responses.
WORE MY PANTS BACKWARD
“Wore my pants backward during the 90s when Kriss Kross was popular. So glad we didn’t have social media back then.”
WORE PANTS WITH RED APPLES ON THE BACK POCKETS
“Once, when I was 5 or 7, I had a pair of pants with little red apples on (what turned out to be) the back pockets. I thought such a fabulous detail should surely be worn in front so everyone could see. I was about to climb in the truck when my dad started laughing and asked if a monkey dressed me. I cried, lol.”
BROKE MY WRIST WHILE TRYING TO BACKFLIP ON A TRAMPOLINE
“When I was eight, my sister had her friends over, all teenagers. Trying to be cool, I jumped on the trampoline before them and told them I’d do a backflip. I’d never done a backflip, so I landed on my neck, bounced off the trampoline, and broke my wrist.”
USED TANNING BOOTHS
“Had a lady friend that was into those. I only did it five times. I was so dark; my grey chest hair was glowing.”
CHUGGED 6 MIKE’S HARD LEMONADES AND THREW UP
“Went to a party, chugged 6 Mike’s Hard Lemonades, and then threw up for several hours. Nobody else at the party was even a little drunk.”
I GOT PULLED UP FOR PLAYING THE CAR STEREO TOO LOUD
“Got pulled over for playing my car stereo too loud. I took the ticket and turned it back up. I took another ticket and turned it back up. I took a third ticket and turned it back up. Spent the night in jail.”
TRIED TO STRIKE A ZIPPO LIGHTER ON MY STUBBLE
“Tried to strike a Zippo lighter on my “stubble.” I was about fifteen; it was fluffy hair. It ripped a zit out of my face. It looked like I’d been shot. Still have an odd clump of scar tissue in my cheek.”
I SPILLED MY DRINK TO HIDE THAT I WET MY PANTS
“I spilled my drink to hide that I wet my pants. Was too cool to say I needed a bathroom.”
I WORE A HOODIE ALL YEAR IN TEXAS
“In junior high, I wore a hoodie all year because I thought it would make me look gangsta. This included those balmy 90+ degree Texas days.”
WORE A HOODIE ALL YEAR IN NORTH EAST WINTER
“I did the opposite! During Freshman year, I wore a zip-up hoodie (no jacket) through a North East winter. Nothing says “cool stoner” like shivering in a blizzard.”
TOLD SOMEONE I HAD A PET TURKEY
“Told someone I had a pet turkey. I do not know why; I was six and thought it would be cool.
How did I get out of the lie? Well, conveniently, thanksgiving was right around the corner.”
FORCED MY MOM TO WRITE NOLAN RYAN ON MY BALL
“In second grade, I forced my mom to sign “Nolan Ryan” on my ball and took it to school to tell everyone I caught it at a game. It didn’t take long for it to be pointed out that I had brought a softball, not a baseball.”
TRIED SHOTGUNNING A BEER
“Tried shotgunning a beer in front of my crush. I sneezed midway through, and the beer came out of my nose. Hurt really bad.”
TRIED CHUGGING THREE BEERS AT ONCE
“I tried chugging three beers at once out of a huge glass to impress a girl. It worked, and she was impressed. Then she wanted to show her friends. Beer 4-6 didn’t go down as smoothly, and I projectile vomited all over her living room furniture. Never heard from her again.”
BROKE MY ARM WHILE TRYING TO RETRIEVE KITE FOR MY CRUSH
“In 3rd grade, I climbed a tree to get a friend’s kite down. I had a crush on her. A branch broke; I fell and broke my arm. I went home acting like everything was cool and cried like a baby as soon as I got home.”
“Still dependent on nicotine 15 years later.”
