Something similar. My first ride on a bicycle. Visiting a friend who lived at the top of hill. Got on the bike, and was zooming like wild down the hill. Then I realized that at the bottom the road crossed through a busy highway...and I had no idea how to stop the bike. The concept of 'brakes' had not been discussed.

When I was younger, my great grandpappy had parrot, he'd peck and bite anyone who stuck their finger in the cage, and what'd i do? I stuck my finger in the cage...several times...when my gradnparents said no...got bit..bled a lot...
Never annoyed the parrot again.

My friend and I were throwing a ball over her house to each other (I was in the backyard and she was in the front). The ball got stuck on the roof so I volunteered to get it down. I found the ball and threw it down then jumped off the roof and sprained my ankle. Lesson: Don't jump from anywhere that is taller than you, it hurts.

Yes, you need to be smart to do something stupid.

I was 6! I didn't know how to land properly. I know now though and jump off my roof all the time.

Unfortunately I was a little sheltered as a child. And mistakes I could have made and learned from when I was 8 I'm now making at 20, with the price being that much higher....

But yeah, I learn BEST through mistakes....and my psychology book agrees!

Best mistake I ever made recently was paying for other people as an act of kindness...for people who weren't deserving.

Went on a bachelor party in Toronto for one of my breaker buddies, 3 day trip. Ended up covering food and bar tabs for some of my other friends who hadn't taken as much money as I did, not because they didn't have it, but because they knew they could mooch off everyone else (damn leeches...).

Now my budget is a little more stretched (I pay my own way through school) because I paid for 3 instead of just myself.

Lesson learned. I always carry just enough for me when I'm around them....and even stiffed them on a bill once, just for revenge...

Oh, you didn't tell me you were 6. I jumped out of a tree and broke my arm when I was 6.
