Today, after waking up, I went into the kitchen and took a swig of milk from the carton. I overestimated my strength, and the whole thing splashed all over my face. A few moments later, my dad staggered in, looked at me in disgust, and said, "You know what? I don't even wanna know." FML

Uhm. I'm pretty sure milk and cum don't look alike. I might think he's doing some freaky shit depending on the moment I caught him. But I don't think he's whacking it on his face.

If I was OP's father, I would have assumed the idiot was trying out his own personal "milk challenge" and I'd be equally unimpressed he wasted that much milk plus made a colossal mess in the kitchen. :p


21-It's common fucking decency. Unless you're single and living alone in your own home, it's completely inappropriate to drink directly from a bottle more than one person is going to use.

But then again, I guess common decency isn't so common, is it?

22 said what I was thinking. If there are more people living in the house, that's just nasty. I drink out the carton, but it's just me and Ryleigh, an she's 7, so she does too. Lol. It's different with more than one adult.


26, that is a very idiotic question you have there.
Overestimate means he believes he is stronger than he actually is.

Underestimating would mean he believes he is not as strong as he truly is.


34- I think 26 is right, if he overestimated it, would it not mean that it wouldn't go very far up, because he thought that it would be lighter, due to his overestimating his strength..
Where if he underestimated, he would think he would have to use more strength to lift it, resulting in it being spilled all over him


40. You just said he estimated his strength and the carton, even though he does not say one thing about estimating anything but his strength.
Please read over the FML before trying to correct me, because I can assure you, you and 26 are wrong.

Sigh, kids these days. Too headstrong and stubborn to take good advice. It's okay though I don't blame you, clearly it's the educational system in your country that's let you down.


Waffle, there is something called for dumb asses like you who can't tell the difference between under/overestimate. And by the way, fuck you for stereotyping the education in America.


saintsrocksoks: Actually, 40 is correct. But don't take my word for it, here's the Merriam-Webster definition of underestimate:

Main Entry: un·der·es·ti·mate
Pronunciation: ˌən-dər-ˈes-tə-ˌmāt
Function: transitive verb
Date: 1792
1 : to estimate as being less than the actual size, quantity, or number.

Therefore, OVERestimate would be the opposite. Based on the definition above, underestimate would be the more accurate term in the FML.

Hopefully this will stop a flamewar from ensuing. Although I may be too late.


Machine, I posted what it meant in one of the comments, you just said the exact same thing in detailed context. But the definition is not the problem in this debate. It's how they use they word.

34- You seem very aggressive for someone simply answering a question. If the OP overestimated his strength, then he would have lifted the carton less than he expected. Think of it this way: if he was lifting weights and overestimated his strength, he might not be able to lift as much as he thought, or not make it go as high.

Don't be sorry that you were wrong. Your point could also be correct. In fact, I'm pretty sure that that would be the more likely scenario. Be sorry you were a dick about it...

I can't believe I'm late for the over/under debate! I'm on the under team. It would be pretty sad if you thought you are strong enough to lift a carton of milk and then find out that... Nope, you can't. That would be a different FML.

To quote Peter Griffin... OH MY GOD WHO THE HELL CARES
Point is, op accidently spilled milk all over his face trying to drink out of the bottle.

If you just live with your family it's not that bad I mean Im sure you would drink out of the same water bottle as your mom dad or sister. Unless you backwash then thats gross.


My intention wasn't to start a debate, all I had wanted to do was to put in my opinion, and back up the "idiotic" commenter. I said what I had thought was true, and I don't think anyone appreciates the way that some responses were sent, I don't believe that name calling is necessary.
Everyone is wrong at times, and it can help to point it out, but only when done kindly.
Seriously, no venom is needed
People tend to listen a lot more when the advice is said in a humane way, not when they are called stupid. There is no need for that.

Maybe it was a new carton...
Maybe he only works out one arm...
And that's his milk drinking arm...
And he forgets the strength difference..
And maybe his body was informing him it's was a little more quenched than anticipated.
And thing escalated quickly..

Always a chance(:

43-Who has a milk drinking arm? "Hold on I need to put all my shit down so I can drink this milk with my MILK DRINKING ARM" All while dressed as superman!

  SonOfAMitch  |  14

I think most of you don't understand how heavy an average milk carton is... Athletes keep trying to master the milk-lifting technique for years now. They eat milk. Drink milk. Breathe milk. They LIVE for milk. Why, you ask? One simple reason. They are training for the Olympics, taking the worlds breath away with their milk-themed stunts. Don't strip them of their dream.

^ Or maybe Op has some bad personal habits, plus he didn't care how much as in there (hence why he's now wearing it) or who may be drinking from it next (again, hence no cup!) ;P

  Warden1986  |  16

I do now, my fiancee drinks 2% and I drink whole milk. Also so do many families have different types of milk the house. Example toddler milk usual whole milk and the rest of family drink skin milk or one member could be lactose intolerant and drink silk milk. Perhaps they just choose have different milk for cooking. Don't be so narrowed minded.

You overestimated your strength? Even if it was a full gallon, that still only weighs about 4kg. Yeah, such a big strong man you are, tough guy.

Oh, and you're a fucking pig for drinking from the carton.

  Dracoboxer357  |  35

^ There has been an upsurge of praising Doc lately. Perhaps be needs to be brought down a step:
Hey Doc! You're an asshole! (Bet he respects That more than "Bend over Doc, I wanna smooch your hole.") ;P
Just screwing with you, Doc. Obviously. ;P

I think OP meant to say that he underestimated his strength, because he tilted the carton back faster than he thought. He overestimated the weight of the carton and underestimated his strength.
