The only thing that comes to mind is from when I was a kid and decided to defy a warning sticker on an escalator telling people not to place their feet at the side edges of the steps. I evidently thought this was a *******s warning and proceeded to inch my foot to the side edge. What followed was the worst jolt of static electricity I've ever experienced. It wasn't very painful, but I recall it striking from my foot through my body, feeling as if it struck through my tongue.


Evidently I have not learned from my previous fights against all things electric - I must try this. dShockedb
I should add that I have not since been able to reproduce this (yes, I've tried...), so it may require a specific balance of footwear, clothing, biometrics, atmospheric conditions and stellar harmonics.

I grew up fairly deep in the woods, and have only recently moved to where i can see a neighbors house.

back when i was a lot younger, the previous owner had setup a Tarzan-esque rope swing maze thing back in the woods. i thought it would be cool to play around with it.

unfortunately, it was situated near a very steep hill/cliff. one day i had swung too far, and after looking down, let go. stupidest thing i ever did on it.

i fell approx 12 feet but landed in a curled up position, so i rolled down the next 10 feet into the stream below.


climbed back up, washed the small cut i got on my elbow, went back to swinging. nothing broken.

When i was young and stupid, a teenager, my friends and i would hold contests where 2 guys would stick their forearms together, laying flat on a table. We would then chuck a burning cigarette in the middle crack between the forearms and see which moron could tough it longer. I still have scars.

Does that count though, if the alternative is worse? Sticking a syringe in your abdomen doesn't hurt anyway, I used to do that for 'fun' back in my lost days.

I did this once. I was home alone and decided that it would be a good idea to tie my yellow belt from Tae Kwon Do to the beams underneath the roof of the carport. I was swinging around for a few minutes before the thing came untied and I knocked myself out for ten minutes.


Also, I once bent a paperclip into an Ankh shape, heated it with a lighter till it was cherry red, and branded the skin between my right thumb and index finger with it.

I'd have to say that the MOST PAINFUL THING I've ever done to myself on purpose was put Icy-Hot(tm) onto my nuts to see what it felt like.

When I was 10, my friends and I were riding our bikes around our school during summer. It was under construction and had lots of interesting things to use as ramps. Well, everyone was jumping their bikes over this pile of fencing, so I decide to try. I ride my bike as fast as I can towards the pile. Lift my front tire as I hit the pile and a split second later I'm off my bike, flying through the air, and my face is hitting the ground... teeth first. My front two teeth where shattered (like grains of sand in my mouth) and two were bent at 45 degree angles. Needless to say my mother was frantically calling every dentist in town trying to get me in that night.

A childhood of frequent dental visits and surgeries resulted from that.

Oh yeah that can sting like a *****. However, what I find more annoying is blood leaking out and me not realising it. I look down half an hour later and there's an obvious red patch on the front of my fresh clean shirt, and no way to change it until I go home at the end of the work day.

(I'm also diabetic btw, I don't stick needles in myself for fun)

I was really good friends with this guy in high school who had a pair of Boxer dogs. These dogs were really muscular (and being Boxers, hyperactive) and he explained to me that if they got out, they'd be gone, which is why they put electric shock collars on them when they went outside.

A few weeks later, I was staying over at his house for the night and his dad dared me to put the collar on before dinner. So, I put the collar on around my neck, clicked the buckle, walked over to the end of the yard, and stuck my head over the edge of the grass (where the wire was buried)...

Nothing happened.

"Yo, Firecrotch, try it again!"

I bend down and put my head over the edge of the lawn again...

Nothing happens.

His dad goes back inside, retrieving a screwdriver, and takes the collar off my neck and proceeds to adjust a screw on the inside (near the giant metal prongs).

"Try it now."

I bend my head over the edge of the grass and am greeted by the single most unpleasant pulsing sensation around my Adam's apple. I can't really remember if it hurt or not, because of the pulsing thing. I ripped that collar off my throat and was done with it.

There.


Oh cmon, I have that and it doesn't even hurt.

Yes. Yes it does. See, what you don't realize when you take a dare like that is that the electricity has to go through (usually) thick fur to electrocute a hyperactive Boxer. These dogs are very strong and needed a bit of extra voltage to be subdued into staying inside the yard. It only just hurts them enough to make them stay on the property, while it really sucks for humans as we have no fur.

yes. as a very young murphy i remember holding in the cig lighter in mom's car while she ran into a store. pulled it out, thought for about 2 seconds and then decided "i'm going to put my finger on that red coily thing"

i *tried* to extinguish a cigarette on my arm drunk w/ some army buddies in my younger days. i succeeded in burning myself and yelling like a girl. the cigarette stayed lit (double fail). i still have the scar and yes, i lie about what it's from unless i'm talking to anonymous ppl on the internet

When I was about 4 or 5 I was watching my dad cut some steel with an oxy-acetalene torch and I watched a big piece of glowing molten steel fly off and land about 5 feet from me. I remember thinking, that looks cool, I want that, and promptly tried to pick it up with my bare hands. My thumb and index finger turned into giant blisters, but oddly enough no scars.

Forgot to keep my legs together while jumping about 20ft into the water at one of my favorite swimming holes and gave my self testicular torsion... a testical should never be the size of a softball, it was so painful I'm pretty sure I blocked the memory cause that whole time is really fuzzy.

Giant trampoline + basketball hoop=a perect circle of a scar on my back from the rim falling on my when the pole holding the hoop in the ground decided to snap.

When I was about 7 I was at a friends birthday party at a bowling alley. You probably know how you would always want the same bowling ball each time you went, and it turns out me and some other kid wanted the same one. I would race him for it every time the ball came up from the machine. On one of those times I stuck my hand into the machine in an attempt to get the ball first. The ball doesn't stop for your hand and there is a very sharp plastic edge on the inside of the machine. The ball ended up pinning and sliding past my hand as it was pressed up against the sharp plastic edge and in turn skinning a good portion of my hand, not too deep thankfully. Needless to say, I have 3 or 4 really cool scars on my right hand :D.

I've got a long list of times I hurt myself through stupidity or ignorance however, I have only had two types of injuries where, as the OP asked, I knew that I was going to hurt myself in advance and did it anyway.


1) Enlisting in the Marines.

2) Falling in love.

Both got me exactly what I had expected they would ...

I never regretted my enlistment though I only did that once.

I have lived to regret falling in love - though that didn't stop me from doing it again ... and again ... and again ...

Some people just never learn ...

At age 3 or 4 I wanted to make tea for my parents. After the kettle boiled, I reached to bring it down, burnt my hand on the outside and spilled the boiling water down my front. Miraculously, apart from a tiny scar on my abdomen there's no other marks.

I also stuck a screwdriver into a mains socket when I was about 7 ish. I thought it was one of the ones with a light bulb in the handle (for testing) and wanted to light it. Man that hurt. Neither of these were deliberate tho.

I did intentionally however sorta electrocute myself. A couple of months ago, trying to plug two video (component) cables, from two seperate devices in opposite ends of the same (very large) room, I noticed while holding them both my arms felt funny. Grabbed them both of them and got about 50V shock. Worked out that the two devices are on different ring mains so have different grounds. Obviously there's a potential difference there...and those two devices couldn't co-exist.

I've killed quite a few braincells so far with alcohol, but I sense that this isn't exactly the kind of thing you're after ;)

I was around 8, it was summer, and me and my friends were out biking in the neighbourhood.
we happen across a really nice jump, it's about a meter-or-so high, and it's got a nice angle, so we start taking turns trying to get the highest jump out of it. I'd just gotten a new BMX (yeah, I'm that old) so I was getting quite a lot of nice jumps.
now, at this point in time, skateboarding was also quite popular, and one of my friends mention that he's made a small skateboarding jump/ramp, and wonders if he should go get it , we all cheer "yes!". and soon enough the jump we'd been using had been modified with the ramp to make the angle steeper.
I'm the first one up, and decide to take a much bigger approach than before, and then I give it my all.
my friends see my reckless approach and try to make me stop by shouting and waving their arms...

In hindsight, I have to agree that a 80 degree angle was a bit stupid.

strangely enough, while they noticed that my speed, plus the addition of the ramp wouldn't end well, none of them thought to pull the ramp away before I got there.

Either way, my memories of the events take a pause at the top of my arch, and start up again at the hospital an hour or so later.

thankfully I didn't land on my head... on the first 'bounce'... but I did have speed stripes down my face from sliding on the concrete.
'mild concussion', according to the doctor.

Let see. I didn't do the shock collar one however one of my friends did. Never seen him jump that high since.

For me, the most painful was in college riding my 10-speed home from the evening shift at the convenience store. No light, no helmet. Going downhill on the sidewalk and seeing a black wire come out of the darkness. I veered left, brushed the wire with my right hand, and pulled the left hand brake. While flying through the air I thought, my GF said something like this would happen, then my head bounce twice off the concrete.

I must have a hard head or something. Cause I stood up threw the bike across 2 lanes and walked over to the sidewalk, sat down and then 3 cars came over the hill. Fun.

I do remember the Ben-gay on the ********* too. Though that one was more because I pulled a groin muscle and thought hey this stuff helps with sore muscles. I was about 8 at the time.

The most intentional one was mistakenly telling the Chinese chef at the Chinese restaurant that I want the garlic chicken HOT!. My GF at the time picked up and brought it to me at work. The guy actually commented to her, “I hope your honey be okay”. Got a very important anatomy lesson in the shape and length of my esophagus, stomach sphincter and stomach, after one bite.
