I'm with Stupid

There are a lot of memes circulating about how many places you've traveled, how many brave things you've done, and how many important life milestones you've achieved. I much prefer this meme, about how much stupid shit you've perpetrated. It's far too long, of course, but it does offer an unparalleled opportunity for mild public self-abasement.

Mark the things you've done.
Calculate your total by counting the number of questions you marked.

"I found my lost mitten in the freezer last year."

Really? Then whose mitten did I find?

37. That's what we electricians like to refer to as a "High Impedance Air Gap."

96. I thought that was just my problem with Heart of Darkness. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.
