Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Whats the stupidest things you have done while you were drunk...?

One of the things me and my brother done was to practice Aikido on the back of an articulated lorry... irimi nage was the wrong technique to be practicing.

I also done a streak as well......... twice...

Thanks
Graham

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Absolutely nothing, I am and always have been a fine, upstanding member of society who would never dream of being drunk and content myself with a nice glass of boiled water and, if really brave, perhaps some crisps on an evening rave (and is it just me or is anyone else really glad they got most of their fun days of excess out of the way before the advent of so many damn digital cameras...)

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

A better question might be what's the stupidest thing you've ever heard of, that way you can have plausible deniability.

I know a guy who tried to tear down his own house, barehanded. The next morning he claimed he didn't have a hangover and didn't remember a thing. The cuts on his hands made him a believer.

Unfortunately, now you all think this was me. I wish.
I was the one helping.

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Back in college I had to write a 10 page paper for an Eastern Philosophy class, so for some reason I decided to drink one beer beforehand to get "warmed up," ...then drank one beer for every page I wrote. I think I ended up short on the required pages, but my professor liked the paper anyway. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what any of my conclusions were...

I was more of the cheering section and if you saw the damage you wouldn't be so impressed. Let's just say the womenfolk didn't stop playing cards except to make sure the pointy/heavy tools were locked up.
I believe him when he says he had no hangover. Two shots of tequila on an empty stomach, wait 20 minutes and THEN add food. You'll never hear my most embarrassing story except that it was the last time I ever had more than one drink and that was in 1987.

Yo Steve,

Have you been reading Aikido Shugyo on the section where young G. Shioda tried to defeat his master M. Ueshiba again. Tsk Tsk Tsk...

Well Boon .. as I tell all my students. When I began my training oh so many years ago, 23, I was 18, young and stupid. Today, I'm just 23 years older. :-)

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

The worst that I've done, and that I allow myself to remember, is to lose somebody's horse. But I want to tell a different story, one that might lessen the load of somebody still stricken by some old, post bacchanalian guilt.

We had been celebrating the last of the semester's exams with the traditional libations. Only two were left standing, myself and an old roommate. Most had retired to several rooms but one poor soul was out cold, upright in a chair there in the living room. For the obvious reasons, we started by removing this gentleman's trousers and replacing them with a thirty gallon bag with holes cut for his legs. This took quite a bit of time and delicate work. He kept stirring and my accomplice had only one arm. The exchange once made, however, we proceeded to drape with toilet paper the entire interior of the house and the people dwelling within - except for this first gentleman. We rolled out one long, white streamer from room to room and lamp to lamp and person to person stopping along the way for more minor mischief of the kind that you can imagine. Ending back in the living room, the two of us laid ourselves down for the rest of the night. And once the two of us had TP'ed ourselves I tossed what was left of the of the roll right into the lap of that gentleman.

Nothing was said by us the next morning, we just looked at the gentleman and shook our heads. He went around a apologized deeply for his behavior the night before and left. The last I heard, he had sworn off drink for good.

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Wore my date's lingerie all the way home.

was very confused when i woke up in the morning with a victoria secret push-up around my chest.

Not really "stupid" per se... but definitely embaressing.

EDIT: Not by itself... UNDERNEATH my other clothing

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

my problem is I was thinking about one stupid thing and then I remembered a couple more that were worse while reading the other responses.

it was far far away, a long time ago in college long before aikido

and some of it wasn't legal

and one evening began by ripping a bathroom sink out of the wall at a bar just because I wanted too see if I could do it...

and the rest I plead the fifth.

I will say it was during a Rocky Horror Showing but I did wear lingerie only in public.

The really stupid thing was it was in the middle of a January storm in eastern Canada (something a sober man (debateable at that point - I was very pretty)) would do.

Since that day I have had sympathy for women who feel they have to wear dresses in winter.

Peter,

I am imagining a 6' 2" balding guy with hairy underarm and legs in lingerie; a good description of a thug I should say.

On second thought, I may be wrong.

I had hair back then - long flowing locks. Seriously pretty - if you ignored the sideburns.

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Several years back at a good friend's wedding the Maid of Honor convivnced me (the Best Man) to trade outfits with her for the reception. She looked much better in my tux than I did in her backless size four dress . The poor priest could hardly keep a straight face as he handed me the microphone to make my speech in front of 250 people with flashing cameras. Strange thing is that I was stone sober through all of this .

Re: Stupid things you've done when drunk!

Yeah I had one serious incident in a ryotei in Osaka. Other than that I never really did anything stupid when I was drunk. One of my students in Nova got with a transvestitie on the dance floor of the Lexington Queen. It was so funny when we told him that she was actually a he!!! Serves him right for drinking and taking drugs when dancing.
