1. Yeah, not feeling a huge urge to do this one

Never take a recreational dose of Benadryl (DPH). Terror tripping, 800mg of that and you won't even realize your conversing with your friend who died in the fourth grade.

So much regret.

2. Right away I can tell this story is going downhill fast

For some backstory, I've always had pretty bad allergies. This combined with a deviated septum (born with a minor case+broken my nose many times) means I very rarely get any air through my nostrils. My girlfriends step-dad has a garden, and being a cool dude gave me a small chili pepper one day with the explicit instruction to "only take small bites, use it as a bet or something." This chili pepper sat in my dorm fridge for a week, waiting like a dormant volcano.

So one day my allergies are really acting up, and the inability to breath is driving me [wild]. After arriving at my dorm holding McDonald's sweet tea and Rolo Mcflurry, I decided I've had enough. The idea strikes me to clear my sinuses with something spicy. Being the only spicy thing available, that pepper becomes my salvation. I grab it from the fridge, and in what I can only describe as a moment of rage-induced insanity, I eat the WHOLE THING. Chew, swallow, down the tubes in a matter of seconds. Instant sinus relief, right? WRONG. The pain and burning in my esophagus was so intense, I began to dry-heave and have full body spasms. Drank the entire sweet tea and ate the whole Mcflurry as quickly as I could shovel it into my face, only to bolt to the toilet and throw it up. Huddled around the toilet and cried/seizured for an hour, fell asleep on the porcelain pillow. Roommate came home, thought I failed my final and was bummed out, left me to die. Never again.

3. Ouch, that's gotta hurt!

Doing some BMX stuff on a bike we found. Ended up breaking my pelvis when both of the wheels fell off.

4. Crap, I had wanted to try bungee jumping but maybe not anymore

My first bungee jump. The leap was fine but I let my body go loose and strangely, during the rebound (I mean like a bounce back due to the elasticity of the rope), the rope made a loop and my hand got stuck in the middle of it causing a massive jerk concentrated on my arm socket and the coarseness of the rope grazed my hand causing a layer of the skin to get sliced. The adrenaline didn't let me feel a thing. My blood hit the ground before I did. Hurt later. Luckily, no structural damage.
