Whats the dumbest thing youve ever done flying ...and lived to tell about it? Didja ever forget to put the dip stick back in? Leave a seat belt buckle hanging outside a door? Land at the wrong airfield? On the wrong runway? Forget to pull your gear up? How bout belly-flop a retrac? My first trip to the upper Midwest, I got so far out over Lake Michigan (I had no idea it was that enormous) while VFR on top that if my engine had puked I couldn't have made landfall with a 60 knot tail wind. And I didn't pack my life preserver or my hip waders.
