They say hindsight is 20/20, but these situations seemed pretty problematic from the jump. First, a teenager was curious to know whether or not his tongue would actually stick to a steel pole if he went outside and licked one in the freezing temperatures, and he got his answer! From the risk to the pain to the unfathomable germ exposure — let's all agree to not try this one at home, shall we?

Next, a man was laying down on the couch when his son picked up the other end of his resistance band. Each holding one end, the toddler began walking away, stretching the band until...SNAP! Ouch, that one had to hurt.

Who Else Saw These Fails Coming?

Who Else Saw These Fails Coming?

You'd think the most dangerous part is over on this construction project—all that's left to do is to haul the bulldozer out from the pit. Unfortunately, Mr. Crane Operator has other plans and accidentally makes a giant mess and almost injures himself in the process. There's a good reason most bouncy slide staff didn't let you and your whole crew get on together back in the day. Being filled with air doesn't quite make for a very durable or stable platform! Too bad these overeager Mexican students learn the hard way, but thankfully nobody's seriously injured. View Now
