Kids can find some incredibly random things to do! 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 your death wish lets 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 real stories will make you wonder how these funny kids 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 funny things to tell. Scroll down below to check out the funniest tweets selected by Bored Panda, and share your own stories in the comments!

Of course that's dumb. You should've used the Johnson's Baby Shampoo one.

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 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.

My youngest son was 4 when he decided 5hat his older brother's gold fish was cold. Took it out of the water and wrapped it in a cloth and placed it under his pillow. It was really cold then and brother was furious.

My son, at about age 3-4, decided to feed the goldfish. He fed it coffee grounds. The fish didn't make it.

I know someone who once put balm on his parrot because he thought his parrot caught cold, and cleaned the whole fish pond with detergent. Good intention, but poorly thought. He was over 20 years old at that time..

My brother put toothpaste in the goldfish tank because "Everyone has to brush their teeth before bed". It killed that poor fish.

I used to take my fish out of the bowl to pet him. He died in less than a week.

I always forgot to feed my goldfish, thus they died. My mom asked why I always forgot to feed them, well they never asked to be fed... right?!

I thought our fish mr. bubbles was sick and gave him the medicine from one of the many illnesses I had as kid. He died and my mom let me stay the next day to flush him down the toilet. I was 4 or 5
