Today, I spent six hours at the ER. Why? My husband dared our seventeen-year-old son to recreate a 'Jackass' trolley-hedge diving stunt at the local supermarket. What wasn't on my groceries list was a broken arm, fractured wrist, whiplash and cuts and bruises. FML

I'm pretty sure they switched it to "don't try to recreate the stunts you see" or they should. Also people have a hard time believing it, but some of them are professionals, or have professionals around. Steve-o for example went to clown college.

#19 I think they were just making a horrible joke that OP got the broken arm, fractured wrist, and such for free since it wasn't part of his/her grocery list.

Ain't nothin at the ER free. I'm pretty sure they charge you 50$ just to take your blood pressure and temperature then another 90$ to wait for 4 hours in agonizing pain on their uncomfortable ass plastic chairs. Don't even get me started on the 200$ a pill ibuprofen.

Not jaded at all I swear.

Generally, endangering one's son's well-being isn't considered "cool". Unless you're into extreme sports where, you know, safety precautions are taken into consideration.

I ride motocross and snowboard so id say I do extreme sports, yes we do take safety precautions. His father dared him to do it. He wasn't forced to. I meant I wish my dad was cool and would dare me to do stuff like that (not necessarily this specific stunt).


I have to agree with #88. There is this thing called sarcasm that people use to patronize, tease, or make a point to other people, often saying the exact opposite of what they mean, which can be noted in their tone -______-

I have a group of male friends that go around "nut checking" each other for sport. They all think it's funny when they can catch one off guard and bring him to the ground moaning in pain. I don't even pretend to understand the game.

#5: because men are just bigger children who are crazy. Example: My boyfriend decides to go jet skiing when there is a hurricane. His guy friends are cheering him on from the boat. I don't try to reason anymore.

"Rub some dirt on it pansy!"
"But dad I think it's broken!"
"Gimme one of your fingers I'll show you broken!"

I need to go watch major pain again....
