The What Not To Do Thread ...

Do not leave an overripe banananana in your backpack all day and then unzip it 45 min. before you leave, expect a swarm of fruitflys to explode out of the pocket. You should see where I sit - I think there's about 30 of the buggers on my screen this moment.

Do not leave a largemouth bass in a cooler in the trunk of a car in Texas in summer for a week.

Don't go to a gas station and ask the clerk to appraise your handgun.

Do not leave your very gross smelly cycling shorts even close to the bed, let alone your g/f's pillow. She will think it was intentional and then place it in your pillowcase...

Is handgun some sort of euphemism?

no, real gun. Gas station attendants clearly don't know that value of a gun and will typically offer what ever they have in the draw at the time.

Do not leave wine in your car in the middle of winter in Alaska. It will explode and is damn difficult to clean off the floor, the windows, the seats, and the ceiling.

^^Oh god that is such a good point! My mom used to leave her white chardonnay bottles in the freezer by accident. I recall eating many a wine soaked ice cream sandwiches. Ah...youth...

if you have any wine, drink it!
I had to pour away a couple of half finished bottles a while ago as the only thing it was good for was 30 pounds of salad.

Do not leave beer in your friend's freezer overnight to "cool it off for a minute"

Don't drain a Naglene bottle full of water right before a ride, either. That was unpleasant...

When you are running then suddenly fall, don't use your face to stop.
