Cutting their steak too soon.

ProTip: Let it rest for 5 minutes so the juices reabsorb before cutting.

I definitely don't deserve that kind of accolade, your kind words are thanks enough.

Yes. I'm skimming a 20,000 gallon pool with a fish wand from PetSmart.

Imagine my surprise when I pulled up 3 baby turtles.

In the Atlanta area, Chick-Fil-a has restaurants called Dwarf House(s) which have these smaller doors (presumably for the dwarfs).

What's the stupidest way you've hurt yourself? by tragicworldrecord in AskReddit

Decided to hold on to the swim platform on the back of a ski boat. The driver started going faster and faster. I kept holding on, my body skipping across the lake. He started driving zig-zag patterns to try to throw me off. As he took the last turn, my hands released from the platform. At the same time, a ski was thrown from the back of the boat which was slingshot through the air, into the water, and directly into my jaw, just under my bottom lip.

It split my skin open almost all the way to my gums but miraculously didn't break my jaw or my teeth.

I'd say that was pretty stupid.

Lol, the skimmer is on the side of the pool. I used the aquarium dip net to remove them from the skimmer to keep from hurting them.

It's a human-sized pool.

Yes. They had apparently fallen into the pool then got sucked into the skimmer. At least they all stuck together.

It's a salt system, but saline pools still produce Chlorine, otherwise algae would grow.

It's my pool and I found the turtles. Apart from the specific breed of turtle, I'm pretty sure I know what I was talking about.
