The big-Mistake thread

Postby Alcari » Mon Jun 25, 2007 3:49 pm UTC

Post your mistakes here. Shouldn't have bought that second Shushi set? Should have told your friend what you really think about his drawing? Shouldn't have gone to the mall today?

Post it here.

Haha, I'm sorry, but that's an awesome mistake.

I shouldn't have studied abroad in the semester when I missed all of my family's birthdays, my boyfriend's birthday and graduation, my sister's graduation, and my one year anniversary with the boyfriend.
Fall would've been much less hot, too.

I shouldn't be posting to fora while at work.

I shouldn't have drank all night saturday night.

I shouldn't have taken up smoking.

And I really shouldn't eat fish and chips for lunch, but I'm going to do it anyway.

I really shouldn't be staying up until 3AM online, especially since I have a job as of today and my internal clock is all screwed up.

I shouldn't have moved to Gainesville. It sucks more ass than... a disturbing mental image of someone/something sucking lots of ass.

I shouldn't have slacked off so much in school. Now I will never get into an Ivy. A measly 3.5 GPA does not take one very far.


Also, I should have been more vigilant towards the warning signs of an incoming crush. Now I've fallen in like with someone.

Damn it all.

If it hadn't been still half-on the truck, I probably would've been saying something like "It sure was nice when I had ribs".

Instead, it just swung down onto my head, and my head can take ridiculous punishment. But it's not like it was comfortable.

I should have tried harder in junior high, so I wouldn't have been put in the low classes in highschool >.<

Should have stayed with my dad and gone to a good school (It's pretty sad. The highschool I go to now once had the same math book for freshmen that I had in the 7th grade...) also they say 1=/=.999... >.<

I shouldn't have bought that 300g bag of Munchies (they're chips, but its a mix of Doritos, Sun Chips, pretzels, and Cheetos all in one bag). I'm attempting to lose weight this summer.
I want to have Bakemaster's babies. It's possible, with science.

I wonder if you can see...

Yes you are recalling correctly, however, Ivy refers to a set of top level universities in this context. Apparently I have the ballpark SAT scores, but my GPA will kill my chances of getting in.

Exactly. I probably should have just said "Highly-selective universities" because I don't actually have my eye on many real Ivy leagues, because not many of them are well known for engineering.

But Ivy is shorter to type :P .

Yesterday, I was at a mountain resort, and there was a "rock scramble" activity. It was actually pretty fun, and supposedly all I had to do was follow the red arrows, and I would make it to a place called Sky Top, and then I could head back down.

Well...I followed the red arrows, but there were so many, and somehow I ended up on a trail called Birchen Path that I didn't even know existed! So I decided to walk all the way back to the hotel using the hiking trails (85 miles of them!), and when I finally emerged from the forest, I was at a road quite a few miles from the hotel.

Thankfully, I managed to hitchhike back, but my parents were really worried, needless to say, and I wasn't too happy about getting lost, either...

Anyway, I make mistakes all the time, but most of them involve major overeating. And saying really stupid things.

I should have stopped to re-tie my shoe: I ran a half-marathon on Sunday. My right toe was banging against the front of my shoe the last hour. My right big toe nail is dark purple today. I have been informed by numerous independent sources that toe nails fall off after they turn this colour. This is going to be an attractive summer :roll:

U-haul was your mistake there.

I comparison-drove a 26ft UHaul and a 26ft Commercial Penske on my move to my cohabitation. The UHaul was one of their regular civvie jobs, all nice, new and shiny. It drove like ass, even though it was pretty new (1-2 years at the MOST). Didn't like starting, had visible damage on the undercarriage and visible hack-and-slash repairs on the engine. The low deck, in theory, is nice. Until you realize that you have to lift large items up 2 feet to get onto it, or use the provided "ramp" and some dollys. The ramp is WAY too thin for large items or anything that requires a dolly configuration other than "one, in the middle", nevermind that the dolly wheels are too small the negotiate the lips at the top and bottom.

The Penske, on the other hand, was shiny, brand new and ran like a champ. It was full loading dock height, but that didn't matter a damn bit, because small items were just as easy to slap on the tailgate and have someone in the truck stacking up (if you're actually walking into ANY rental truck every time you bring a small box out, you're doing it wrong and wasting HUGE amounts of time and energy). For the big items, it has a hydraulic lift gate rated to like 11ty billion pounds. Start the truck (to charge the hydraulics), flip off the hydraulic safety, walk 'round back, unfold the lift, lift or roll the mofo onto the lift gate, and with the toggle of a switch, you just lifted $heavy_item the to the requisite height. The truck was also easier to drive and better equipped than the uhaul.

In short, don't use uhaul. Moving OUT of the cohabitation involved 2 26ft Penskes. And yes, between the two of us we had two damned 26ft trucks worth of stuff in this 1bed/1bath + rec room + office + kitchen "apartment". To be fair, though, you could've parked the two trucks side-by-side in our rec room.



And on that subject, my biggest mistake is the aforementioned cohabitation.

I find the third picture in that thread kind of funny. It's pages and pages of girls, and then out of nowhere there's a picture where a scrotum takes up ~3/4 of the frame and the girl is kind of on the periphery.

There have been a few that went a fair way before being deleted I've noticed too :S

Stupid things I've done... not realise until I'm not actually going to see a girl again possibly ever (or atleast not for a while...) that I really want to ask her out.
