Kids can do incredibly dumb things sometimes! Which, when you think about it, isn't such a bad thing. Experience is the greatest teacher of all, and getting yourself into sticky situations when young can give you a lesson in life that you will never forget. As long as you make it through to adulthood in one piece of course!

Twitter user @MotherOfDoggons asked people to share some of the stupid things they did as kids, and some of the answers will make you wonder how they managed to survive this far. From starting fires and stabbing themselves for attention, to eating grass to prove that they are part horse, let's just hope that these crazy kids have learned from their hilariously stupid experiences. And if not then hey, at least they have a funny story to tell. Scroll down below to check out the funniest tweets selected by Bored Panda, and share your own stories in the comments!

Hahaha, I always got Play Dooh for Saint Nicolas at my school. My mother dreaded that time of year. Because for some (creative) reason I always smeared the stuff in the living room carpet. As I also loved to make drawings on the bottom of the plate that was our salon table, instead of using the blackboard. I probably found drawing while laying on the floor more relaxing. And drawing gnomes on (again) the carpet in our living room was also my speciality ( in all shades of pink & purple).

Why do children have such a strong death wish? Is there any other animal out there who has to constantly save its young from killing themselves?

I think you should be happy it burned, because if you had only turned on the gas it could have been a lot worse in the end.

I went through a short phase where I was pretty sure I could fly if I just tried hard enough. I gave it up pretty quickly when none of my flying experiments worked.
