It takes time for smart people to grow up and reveal that intelligence. No matter who you are or where you come from—if you were a kid, you’ve done some dumb stuff. Instead of trying to hide these hilarious actions away, however, Twitter has decided to come to terms with them and have a good laugh with each other!

@MotherOfDoggons posed a simple question to her fellow Twitter users on December 9:

“What’s the dumbest s*** you ever did as a kid?”

Obviously, the answers were plentiful and hilarious.







Unfortunately, most of these solutions to everyday problems were strangely ineffective.




What are things like on the other side?


If you haven’t spent weeks without eyebrows, you haven’t lived.


You have to admire this youngster’s entrepreneurial spirit!

And this kid’s…creativity?

Babysitting is a recipe for disaster.


Why did so many of the responses involve fire?




An alligator’s gotta do what an alligator’s gotta do.


At least it had nine lives…


“The butter is mashed.” -the creepiest child ever.

This child had to learn that correlation isn’t the same as causation!

Thankfully, we’re all grown now, which means we’re geniuses who never make stupid mistakes ever!
