Top 10 Dumbest Things to Do When You're Bored


The Top Ten

1 Jump out a window and say, I believe I could fly

I did that when I was 12, my mom, dad, and my sis and bro were gone, they left me here because I am old enough to stay home by my self, anyway I broke my computer then I got extremely bored and then I just jumped out the window, I screamed until I passed out, and then when my family came back, they rushed me to the hospital and my left leg and left arm was broken... I was so stupid back then. - MeaganSaysHI

Superman must have saved you. Either that or you have the power to survive. - Chaotixhero

This is really dumb, but dangerous too. It depends of the distance between the window and the floor. If you live in a house, it would hurt a bit, nothing else. I wonder what happens if it's a huge tower... - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Wow this would be the stupidest thing ever. - TopTenJackson

I would do that
Out of a plane

3 Use tablets as swords

Yeah, why just buy those historical swords from the 1600s when you have tablets woooho! Yeah let's fight my father died because uncle pressed the ipad on his belly, prepare to die uncle! Then I killed uncle by throwing my iPad mini 2 on his head!? Yeah tablet knifes to cute meat and bread oh man! I chop the wood not using an axe because axes suck, but using a Samsung tablet yeah man! I use my iPhone as scissors and my iPod for jam and butter spreading! Yeah baby! - Cobbleborg

My little cousin hit me with her iPad once. It was on Xmas 2015

My friend climbed a tree 2 the very top and could see my dad mowing the lawn on the other side of the house...
Me: HI DADDY! *laughs creepily to self*

Me: I climbed a tree!
Mom: Sarah honey don't jump off of that tree!
Me: Too late mom! *jumps*
Mom: Sarah!
