People Do Some Weird Stuff Just To Prove Themselves…

26 Jun 2020



I let a black widow spider bite me to prove that they were venomous but not deadly. I also won a $150 bet.



Chugged way too much Apple cider vinegar…..huge mistake.



Let a friend tase me in the butt for 1000 pesos (about 30 US cents lmao)

…colombian pesos, 1 USD today = 3722 COP



As a kid I told my friends I could hold my breath for a long time, long enough to pass out, in fact. And that’s exactly what I proceeded to do.



Played that stupid [email protected]#king 5 finger filet game with a compass back when I was in school. As I got more confidence I obviously got faster and inevitably the point went right into the side of my finger tip. [email protected]#king idiot.



In grade school, maybe age 11 or 12, I had these cheap jeans. I figured out that I could flex my belly and pop the button open, found this funny and guy friends in class got a laugh too. One of them turns to a girl, hey girl checkout what OP can do; I flex my belly and let out a huge fart while the button popped open. She turned away, my buddy laughed, and i never did this trick again



Chug an entire bottle of cheap wine in like 20 seconds. But thanks anyway to the neighbor who almost called 911 when I “threw up blood”. Not blood just bad decisions.



Walked through the brush of our treeline to get a football to prove it wasn’t poison ivy. I did it. I got the football.

It was poison ivy.



I stabbed my leg with a pencil in elementary school. I told people I couldn’t really feel much pain (which, at the time, was true). There was a spot on my leg from the lead for years.



Won a doughnut eating contest. In 10 minutes I ate about 17 doughnuts, and seconds before the time was up and I had all my thoughts set on having a hearty cleansing puke a [email protected]#ker who wasn’t even taking part yelled that throwing up afterwards should disqualify you. Somebody counted that I took in a few days worth of calories. My appetite came back two days after.



A buddy bet I couldn’t finish the spiciest chicken sandwich at this joint known for insanely spicy chicken in under 30 minutes. I knew I [email protected]#ked up when they gave me gloves to eat the sandwich so the sauce couldn’t touch my skin and made me sign a waiver.

Won the bet, but really I lost in the end.



Cliff diving, saw a old man do a front flip off a 40 foot cliff. I said if he can do it, so can I. I did the flip alright, followed by a belly flop that Zeus could hear. Knocked the air out of me, but luckily people were floating near by to save my [email protected]$$.



When I was around 12, I was neglecting to flush my piss. Too busy playing armored core. So my dear mother brings me into the bathroom, and tells me if I don’t flush next time, she’s going to dip my hands in the piss. I looked at her, made a hammer fist, smashed it in the toilet, covered myself in piss, only a little on her(thank god.)

I wasn’t even a malicious child, just salivated at the opportunity to show I could withstand the punishment and was thus unafraid.



Not me but one of my former co-workers told us about the time he ate a tub of butter on a dare. He made it about half way through and had to throw up. He said what came out was neon yellow. For the next month, the smell of butter made him gag and when he perspired, he could still smell it.

You’d think he’d learn but he attempted the butter tub challenge a second time. This time, he paced himself and actually finished the whole thing! He said the [email protected]#k up though was eating it before having to catch a train. While he was waiting, his heart was racing and he felt so amped up, he did pushups and jumping jacks at Penn Station.



Peed on the ceiling. I have strong peeing muscles.



Not me, but my dad’s friend. They were all sitting around being dumb drunk rednecks. And one of them was like, “I betcha I can get this entire beer can down in one of them there coke bottles.” Then proceeded to do it by shredding the can by hand, cutting his fingers to [email protected]#t in the process. But damn it, he got it all in there, piece by stupid piece.

#10 Sorry to burst your bubble but there hasn't been lead in pencils since the late 70s.

So you know this person and when it happened? I didn't see the poster mention what year it happened.

Sure because you know, most 50-55 year olds come on picture websites and reddit to post about their childhood in the mid to late 70s....

Yes, we do. And they had lead pencils for years after I graduated.
I post here often. I also enjoy video games, good, sex and most everything else you seem to think I'm disqualified from. What is wrong with you?

Alyssa, everyone calls it pencil lead regardless of what it's made off.
