You've all sinned.

    You've all sinned. You've all done something embarassing, regrettable, or just a little naughty. The more amusing the better. Share with PF, won't you?

    Although I've made decisions I've regretted like the car I bought and getting the 30 year roof warranty instead of the 40 year, that's about it. :zzz:

    I also regret getting the fetuccine alfredo at Fazolli's the other night. :yuck:

    When nearing the end of my days as an alter boy, I started taking hits off the alter wine along with a handful of hosts - all unblessed of course. I always liked the taste.

    Strange and Eerie Coincidence?

    Early this morning I hit the "New Thread" button after I'd already started the Famous People and Favorite Shakespeare threads, and I typed in:
    "Confess To Father Zooby

    Since tomorrow an engine may fall off a jet and knock anyone of us into the next life, I think it would be best if we took this opportunity to unburden our souls of that bit of mischief that we've been carrying around for years."
    I stopped and stared at that for a while, but I couldn't think of a good example of the kind of mischief I was refering to to get people started. In other words, I was a bit afraid someone might blurt something really bad out, instead of the light, funny stuff I was going for. I decided it was "Better safe than sorry", and chucked the whole thread.

    Now, a few hours later, I come and open General Discussion and see this thread. This is a bit creepy.

    Hmm...embarrassing things I do...I post pictures of my toes on the internet...:uhh:...has anyone noticed that giant chronicle of my misadventures...yeah, over there...that thread called, "Thread Killer Champions." I doubt there's much left to tell, at least of the things fit to share publicly. I guess I'll never have a career in politics after PF. :rolleyes:

    Don't think you were ever gonna have one before PF either. A person with a PhD in sex would be too much for the voting public to handle. Too controversial and obscene, afterall.

    Nah,as much as i like being told dirty secrets (i'm that perverted),i won't have any luck around PF.Maybe in private people open themselves and tell things they would feel too embarassed to tell the priest,but here,nope,not a chance.

    These forums are moderated,remember,so if anything dirty "leaks out",it gets deleted pretty fast,right...?:wink:

    I spent the first two weeks of my internship last summer reconditioning a hydraulic blanking press. I'd spent every hour of every day on it. I'd dismantled it, bought new seal sets, cleaned it all up, replaced the packings, rewired it, painted it, put fresh oil and new filters in, and put it all back together. It was a beautiful job. I was almost proud.

    Anyway, Friday afternoon of the second week (ie commissioning day!), the MD was giving a very sharp-suited Rolls Royce auditor a tour of the site. They came down to the workshop where I was finishing up, and the MD introduced me to the Rolls Royce guy, who then asked me if the press was ready to go yet. "Sure, it's finished!" I replied, and switched it on.

    Naturally, things never go quite right. I'd forgotten to put the pressure gauge back onto the press. Hydraulic oil spewed about 20 feet up into the air, and what seemed like a lifetime passed. Then, naturally, gravity took its course, and showered this Rolls Royce chap in about half a gallon of oil.

    Forgive me, I have sinned. I watched an hour and a half of Big Brother Live last night. I'm so ashamed.

    Oh my... there's a thread similar to this on another forum I frequent. It got really bad. Some of mine were pretty bad too but I'll spare you. There aren't many things about myself I keep secret but I don't want to make a terrible thread here. Let's see...

    I used to have a crush on my cousin. It wasn't until after the crush faded away that we found out we weren't really related to one another.

    Hmm...perhaps I'll add a degree of seriousness to this, eh?

    I stole a crystal from a shop in Yellowstone National Park about 7 or so years ago. That was the first (and only thing) that I ever stole from a store directly, I was young though, and it was stolen with good intent, though I can't excuse it no matter what I say.

    I've taken wire cutters to a bike tire, totally ruined it. Felt horrible about that one.

    Took a chocalate chip cookie when I wasn't supposed to. (Hah, I can't believe I can remember that)

    I've shoved my sister maybe a time or two over the years. Made her angry on purpose plenty of times, found it amusing. Still do but I try not to anger her, heh.

    At one point I had over 800 megs of porn on this thing...yup. Gone now, long gone. Could perhaps call that a "phase"...who knows.

    If God exists to care, I've used his name in vain a number of times.

    Cursed a lot back a few years ago...another "phase" perhaps. As of now I can't remember cussing within the last month, it's nice because people take ya seriously if you use a curse.

    I download music and movies. (Still not sure on this one...but I'll put it here)

    When I was very young I stole a quarter from a neighbor, I believe I knew it was wrong, otherwise why would I remember it?

    In first grade I remember giving a kid a bloody nose...that might have been the only time I ever got in trouble for behavior. I hate to say it, but he almost deserved it.

    And there you have it. That's about everything I can recall that I could call "sinning"...not too bad I'd say. And seriously, that is everything that I can remember doing throughout my entire life with a good 20 minutes of thinking. Perhaps you should make a thread asking for all the nice things you've done to counter this one, eh?

    what was your good intent with the crystal? (if you don't want to answer, don't. I'm just nosy. :biggrin: )

    Oh, another one. I once tightened up the brakes on a friend's bike. Another friend then rode it, stopped a bit too quickly, and broke his arm.

    The crystal, a gift for my mother.

    As long as you aren't a frequent Big Brother viewer then you're alright ;)

    As for me I don't think I've really sinned o:)
    Well nothing big really...couple of white lies, some swearing and that's it.
    OK there is one thing that I feel really bad about though, but it is a misunderstanding and not anything I actually said.
    I was joking around with this guy one day and said that he liked a girl because it was pretty obvious. Anyway she was the meanest person so I kinda carried on and said "how can you possibly like her?" It wasn't my place to judge or say that, but I was 13 and was pretty immature. Anyway then some girl that I used to be friends with (early primary school but not in highschool) walked by and this guy told her that I thought that she was a "stupid b*tch". I didn't really pay much attention to it 'cause I didn't think she would have taken him seriously, but she did take him seriously and then told her whole group that I thought that were ALL "stupid b*tches" even though they were far from stupid or b*tches.
    Because they didn't believe me when I eventually told them the actual truth, I ended up apologising A LOT for something I never even said...and they still hold it against me.

    That is the only thing I really can't stand and it has been a burden ever since it happened.

    did you tell them that it was a misunderstanding?
  22. Jun 1, 2005 #21
    Ok, I'll talk.

    In third grade, I cheated on my history exam.

    In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play.

    In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog...

    When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out...

    But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.
