After reading the thread from Ranger about the dumb 13 year old who stole his vehicle – I started thinking – it’s what I do best at 3:15 in the morning.
What is the dumbest thing you did as a kid or teenager?

Well, I'll start with "one" of mine! I decided to skip school and go joy riding all day! Gas was a lot cheaper in those days. We had fun driving around, going to Dairy Queen, getting ice cream and french fries. Then we were cruising down one of the main streets and who to you think we see at the red light? My grandfather was heading home for lunch and we pulled up right next to him! We were busted! Thankfully, my Mother had gone to high school with the Principal - she even called him "Bubba"! I didn't get suspended BUT I also didn't get to drive the car for six months. Which to a 16 year old seemed like an eternity

I don't think there was anything I did as a kid that was NOT dumb! Isn't that what kid-hood is for???

It's too early in the morning to figure out which was the dumbest! Suffice it to say, whatever it was, it was pretty dumb!

Too many to list. Highschool in the 70's. I took chances and risks that were ridiculously stupid. I never got into trouble with the law but I spent most of my teen years grounded.

We used to ride our bikes, as hard as we could down this long sidewalk at school (when it was closed) to build up speed, and then into the air off of a 10 step staircase, landing in the parking lot below. Of course we had those heavy steel American made bikes then in the 50's.

Actually we used to do a lot of stuff like this. It's a wonder we weren't injured or killed. Must have kept the guardian angels very busy I think this came from that innate quality of male humans to say "Watch This!"
