Post The Ultimate List of Bad Ideas/Decisions!

List your bad ideas/decisions in this list! You might even add the bad results in parentheses :)

Worst business decision ever in a life filled with them, a true story:

It was either late 1963 or early 1964. Met a fellow in a bar and we got to talking. Of course, the subject got around to the fact that I was just out of the Navy. He asked what I had been trained to do and I told him.

He said, "You sound like just the kind of guy I'm looking for. I need a field service technician. Company car etc. etc."

I asked him what company he worked for. He told me. I asked how they spelled that. He told me. I asked what they made. He told me.

I decided right there to not get involved with that. After all, carbon paper was so cheap and a weird name like Xerox?

Swear to God.

1. Launch a nuclear missile into deep space and take observations
2. Blow up the Earth's moon
3. Fire up the Large Hardon Collider and see if we can make a black hole to implode the Earth.
4. Pissing away a job at Xerox
5. Ripping around on new zuma tires (causes some bumps and bruises?)
6. Quote: "Tell us about Monica Lewinsky!" (embarrassed the entire nation!)
7.

I guess I'll just compile as I go along. Thanks for all the bad ideas! I hope I can make a good decision when someone comes up and asks me to help out with a future successful job.

Here's one that was rather involuntary:

Remember when G. H. Bush had a bit of bad sushi and blew chunks all over the Japanese Prime Minister?


I'm sure there are plenty of stories that begin with, "I had a one night stand with this ugly, fat chick and now she's pregnant."
