We all like to live on the wild side once in a while. We like to do something that is out of our comfort zone and really gets our blood rushing. For some people, that’s their every day, but that doesn’t mean dangerous ideas aren’t dangerous. As you will quickly find out, while some of these people thought it was a good idea at the time, looking back they’ll realize that they were one step away from death.

Are you or any one in your life someone who would fit on this list? If so, let us know in the comments.

1. This guy’s flamethrower

Not 100% sure if this propane tank is a flamethrower or if he’s shooting flames from behind. Either way, this guy is asking for one heck of a tan.

2. Probably best to hire a guy to change the bulb

This might be a case of being too frugal with his money and not wanting to hire a professional. But from the photo, I think it would have been worth it to spend the money.

3. When you’re too manly for hedge clippers

Can you imagine if the lawnmower cut one of the straps? This guy is begging for a Wicked Witch of the East-style crushing.

4. Oh, I can’t look

Fingers crossed this is just a photo for the lols, not how they actually cut the board.

5. Too Russian?

From other articles we’ve done about people being too Russian, this doesn’t seem out of the ordinary. But seriously? What could this guy be thinking?

6. Just a little man stew

This is just way too redneck for words. While it might have seemed like a good idea to make a DIY hot tub, these guy’s are just asking for some world class burns.

7. Not a good day to be the small guy

Friends come in all shapes and sizes. This is the situation where you wish they didn’t.

8. Get this guy away from the gun range, stat!

It should go without saying that you should have proper head gear while at a gun range. It should also go without saying that in absence of the proper gear that you shouldn’t plug your ear with a gun.

9. Dude! Turn off the torch

Maybe it’s hard to light this torch – I don’t know I wasn’t there. However, I think difficulty with lighting the torch is better than 4th-degree burns.

10. When your death wish comes true

I wonder how this happened? Even if the train was on its way, there had to have been plenty of time to get out of the way.

11. House cats don’t even like this

No clue what this guy was thinking when doing this. Your average house cat doesn’t even like it when you play with their tail, so I can’t see how doing it to a tiger would be any better.

12. When you skip a whole month of leg day

You see some pretty crazy things at the gym. You see people really push their limits. This guy is pushing how long he can live with the extra weight on this leg press machine.

13. This won’t end well

With Hurricane Harvey forcing oil refineries in the area to shut down until everything gets back to normal, gas is a premium. However, there must be better and safer ways to stock up on gas than this.

14. How far will he go?

Dude, just stop. Turn the machine off and gather yourself and realize how stupid you’re being. Now go get a push stick to do what your foot is doing. Your wife and kids will thank you.

15. This guy’s playing with fire

Why put the wheels on in the front when you have so many in the back? This is the kind of guy you want to steer clear of on the highway. Not to mention the road looks pretty wet, so good luck slamming on your breaks and not causing an accident, bud.

16. Again, way way too redneck for words

This might be every man’s dream who grew up wearing Fox racing apparel and shooting cans in the backyard. But at some point, you have to realize that someone is going to lose a leg with some of your ideas.
