Damn...the chick that got spiked was hot...

In grade 4, I was trying to push my compass into the graphite core of my pencil.
Yeah, then I slipped and drove the point of the compass right through my finger.
I was too embarrassed to tell anyone.

Procedural Texture: In grade 4, I was trying to push my compass into the graphite core of my pencil.

In 4th grade this psycopathic kid used to stab people with pencils. I still have a couple of dark spots on my hand where the graphite tip is healed into the skin.

Damn, that had to hurt. My reaction would have been to kick him in the nuts.
2006-10-01 08:13:19 AM  
My reaction would have been to not let him do that to my hand. I'm okay with backing out, because I don't trust people with my health and safety. It's not that I'm afraid of getting stabbed, it's that I don't like what may be on the sharp object.

That being said, when she tried to pull her hand away and he held it there and wouldn't let her go... i would have broken his knee. The law states self defense is when a reasonable person has reasonable grounds to feel threatened. Knowing there is a sharp object underneath one of them, and him forcing you to play russian roulette... that gets my vote.

Jebus help him if he were to force me in to doing something any crazier. If this isn't reason to carry some sort of weapon in self defense, I don't know what is. I'm one of them kinds of people who you will never get to dig his own grave at gunpoint. Either I take the gun and shoot you first, or you shoot me and dig it your own farking self.
2006-10-01 08:23:47 AM  
Oh, that's awesome. "Close your trillion eyes!"
Yet, just like the guy who kabobed his volunteer, the audience still claps. Is there some sort of law?
2006-10-01 08:30:32 AM  
Larry? Dude, my bad.

I did the same thing once. Well, slightly different. I was in first grade and was trying to shove a sharpened pencil point through a crayon. Slipped and stabbed my finger tip instead. I still have a nice scar almost twenty years later.

Damn, they must do things differently over there if all she wanted was chocolate and flowers. Over here in North America, apologies come in huge cash settlements.

oh man! OUCH!!! whaaaaaaa

Procedural Texture: In grade 4,

What's with grade 4? I measured the tip of my pinkie finger with a staple and it slipped comfortably over it. So, I figured, I've got a great trick here. I put the stapler on my desk and turned to the guy next to me. "Hey, Kerry, watch this." And I stuck my finger in the stapler and slammed the top with the fist of my left hand. The staple went through both sides of my finger. Kerry thought it was hilarious.

IN 4th grade I stabbed myself in the hand with lead from a mechanical pencil. I was trying to fix one, by poking its little graphite hole thing, and slipped and jabbed my own hand, subsequently breaking off about a half inch of graphite inside my finger tip. I went to the nurse, she was too afraid to pull it out with a tweezers, because it was kinda in there, so I dug around and pulled it out and went back to class.

In 7th grade, I put a staple into my humb, all the way.

In 12th grade I step on a screwdriver bit index laying on my bedroom floor and buried one of the bits in my heel. Thankfully it came out as soon as I pulled the index off, but it pushed some sock into this massize hole, because of course, it could be a little bit, it had to be the largest. That got infected and hurt a lot.

This past summer I put a light table corner through my left index finger tip. I still have the finger tip and the nail will grow back... I hope. It's a funny story full of irony and me not getting my workman's comp yet...

/I think I'm accident prone now.
2006-10-01 10:22:24 AM  
I now will enjoy watching magic more after watching that. Now there will be some suspense.

That was a pretty good trick.

Ecobuckeye: I put the stapler on my desk and turned to the guy next to me.

We did something like this as an "initiation". We'd put two staples in the stapler to show the victim that it was loaded. Then, in order to join our group, he had to take the next one to the palm of the hand.

Fortunately I was good at counting. Two in the stapler and two out before it went against anyone's hand.
2006-10-01 10:31:48 AM  
Holy stigmata! Jesus, thats gotta sting!
2006-10-01 10:35:14 AM  
Not that hard to watch, but more like WTF? That guy is gonna stick to card trick next time.

rdu_voyager: We did something like this as an "initiation"

Reminds me of the old "Monkey in the pool hall" Joke.

Now he measures everything before he eats it.

In 4th grade, my school was too poor to afford hole punchers. I had to punch a hole in a paper plate for an art project with scissors. Yeah, guess how that ended up.

/slashied straight through my index finger.
//dumbass school system wouldn't let me walk across the street to the hospital
///my mom came from an hour away to drive me.
////I reiterate: slashie!
2006-10-01 11:14:46 AM  
I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!
2006-10-01 11:43:20 AM  
I couldn't watch.

now you've got a little slot to make quarters disappear.
Mentalpatient87 FTW!
2006-10-01 11:46:38 AM  
Wow, we all have 4th grade stupidity stories I guess.

I also stabbed myself with my pencil, still have a little dot on my palm from the graphite

/I wonder, if people have "Terrible twos", and "Sophmore Syndrome", and "Senioritis" is 4th grade the "Retarded Years" or something?
2006-10-01 11:53:18 AM  
I cut my left thumb in half with a table saw, does that count as a magic trick gone wrong? If you've seen Richiardi you know what I'm talking about.

Cut and restored thumb, although the trick took a year. Works fine now, tho.
2006-10-01 11:58:34 AM  
This clip is far more hilarious
Most botched magic performance of all time.

Years ago, I saw a video of an escape artist doing the old "buried alive" trick (guy gets straight-jacketed, wrapped in chains, shoved in coffin, placed in grave; grave is filled with dirt and just as their levelling off the top of the dirt, the guy shoved his hand out of the ground and pulls himself up).
The magician in the video decided that his gimick was going to be that he used cement instead of dirt and a thick glass coffin instead of a wooden one. He'd done all the math and figured out that he would have plenty of time to get out of the coffin and dig through the cement before it hardened.

Except...he hadn't taken into consideration that, as cement dries, it hardens on the bottom well before it hardens on the top. So just as they workers are levelling off the top of the whole thing just collapses in.

Now that is the most botched magic trick of all time.
2006-10-01 12:06:35 PM  
Not hard to watch. You guys are wusses.

2006-10-01 12:06:39 PM  
Reminds me of the scene in The Butterfly Effect when Ashton goes back in time and slams his hands on the teacher's memo spikes so his cellmate will think he has stigmata.

The Aristocrats!
2006-10-01 12:11:43 PM  
My mother was right. Never play with sharp, pointy objects.

And, may I add...OWIE!
2006-10-01 12:16:38 PM  
For those of us too terrified to watch, does he just puncture her hand, or does something get chopped off?
2006-10-01 12:35:12 PM  
Wow...that made my sphincter pucker and my butt cheeks clinch. I'll be able to stand up and still have my office chair stuck to my ass for the next five minutes.
2006-10-01 01:10:18 PM  
The video is way too shiatty to make any detail out; but yes, in both videos the hand gets spiked; nothing chopped off. I dont think its that hard to watch, really; thres no gore.
2006-10-01 01:18:22 PM  
Harr harr, that was good fun. I'm feeling like a Clockwork Orange this morning...
2006-10-01 01:20:10 PM  
sombreradoraloca: For those of us too terrified to watch, does he just puncture her hand,

You don't really see anything, it's just people jamming their hands on what should be empty and turns out not to be. Punctures, no permanent dammage.

Try watching without sound if it bugs you. There isn't anything really gross to watch; it's just people in pain.

My friend told me a story in elementary school about a magician who was performing a trick with a girl from the audience using a small guillotine. She gave the finger to the paramedics.

I-I-I-I-I-I-I want the knife.

The last YouTube video that DVD posted reminded me of a "Faces Of Death" video. Not much a trick gone a tad wrong as a "piss my pants and call me an idiot for playing with a death beast" event. :-)
2006-10-01 02:37:36 PM  
DVD Alligator trick...

fark dude! ....the goddamned death roll!

/gotta get another keyboad
//and it ain't coffee i spit up!
2006-10-01 02:54:18 PM  

It's in this video. You just have to let it play past the knife bit.
2006-10-01 03:01:57 PM  
The staple went through both sides of my finger. Kerry thought it was hilarious.

HAHAHA! I did the EXACT same thing!!

/Grade 4
2006-10-01 03:21:07 PM  
Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat!
/watched way too many after-school cartoons
2006-10-01 03:24:45 PM  
Yeah, its just a puncture stab through the hand... not that bad, really... no detail on the hand stab, just reaction from a distance. like a magic show.
2006-10-01 03:29:14 PM  
When you've stabbed an audience member in the hand it's time to find a new profession. Claasy how he let the woman have her hand down first.
2006-10-01 03:58:53 PM  
DVD omg, you can actually see his arm getting snapped off when it starts rolling..holy cow.
2006-10-01 04:00:40 PM  
I saw that same trick.
I also remember a few years later, some other guy tried it with a wood coffin or somesuch.
Apparently wood doesn't hold up as well either. However, Darwin just missed this guy
2006-10-01 04:41:05 PM  
This one isn't a magic trick, but it makes me laugh every time.
2006-10-01 05:55:42 PM  
Why the hell did they use knives or spikes? What's wrong with block of wood, or a bag of M&Ms?


I feel sorry for the volunteer. Although I think I would have told that guy where to go and never left my seat.
2006-10-01 10:36:46 PM  
I melted a plastic Wal Mart sac with a flame over my leg. I don't really know why... The molten plastic dripped down at once all over my leg and stuck fast. I jumped up screaming, ran into a pile of logs, and immediately fell. It must have looked a joke in a Ben Stiller movie, but even stupider. As if that's even possible. I have two scars from it now.

/dumbest thing ever done.
2006-10-01 11:38:44 PM  
Is the black guy at time 1:01 of the video wearing a moon-pie on his head?

Mmmmmm Moon Pies

I loved the crazy Britons with their insipid commentary.
