    I wasn't paying attention when I backed out of the driveway this morning, and I backed over our garbage bin. Fortunately, I was not moving very fast so there was no damage to the car or the bin. I still had to get out my car in an ice storm and pick the damn thing up.

    :stupid:

    I ran over my helmet once. I've known several people who have ran over their front wheels after forgetting to put them in their cars.

    I have never backed over anything, but in an emtpy parking lot I managed to hit a pole trying to back out of a space (when I could have just went forward since it was empty).

    Biggins backs up, feels a thump thump. Thinks to self "is that in the road or is something wrong with my car", pulls forward. Thump thump. Thinks to self "good not my car" backs out again. Thump thump.

    In a hurry one day to get my kids to soccer practice I backed up, turned too sharply and caught my front end on a tree in my ex-wife's driveway. F'd up the front end of my car pretty good.

    I'm a dumbass way too often and do stupid stuff like that.

    My neighbor's car. And I'll do it again. My neighbor seems to think it is a good idea to park one car directly behind my driveway and another beside my driveway so it is almost impossible to back out my truck.

    I have zero sympathy for stoney having his car towed. Jerks shouldn't block people's driveways.

    someone backed over my friend's sister's pet turtle :(

    So, yes, turtles have survived since the dinosaurs and are the oldest living creatures, but apparently a minivan is where we draw the line.

    I've only backed into a pole. Was at night and I was backing up and steep driveway. It knocked the cement filled pole over, but no damage was done to the car. :D

    Nothing except curbs really. The occasional snow bank. No items or people though. Unless I'm under the influence, I normally don't like hitting people with my truck, its a big mess.

    Immediately after I got my license, my mom backed into a tree in the DMV lot. I have never, to my knowledge, backed over anything.

    I'd like to back over my ex.

    I've backed over my coffee cup before.

    I ran into a deck with a riding lawn mower.

    I also ran into a swingset with the riding lawn mower.


    I've hit numerous curbs in a car.

    I backed over a rather large stump with my mother's car.



    I backed into a parked cop car within this past year.

    Do I win, yet?

    I didn't know it was a contest, but it sounds like you should stick to riding bikes.

    On a bike...

    I ran into a stump (and ended up in the emergency room)
    I ran into other people's bikes (this was intentional, mind you...)
    I almost ran into a squirrel

    I've back over my front wheel. Was having a crappy day, decided to go riding to blow off some steam, well needless to say I didn't get to ride :( I was suprised that the only damage to the wheel was the skewer and the rotor. Rim was still intact and true!!! To this day I my front skewer is still the odd colored part on my bike. Everything else is black, blue, and grey. The front skewer is gold. My wonderful ex decided as a "reminder" to me I had to keep the odd colored skewer instead of getting a new blue one...a**hole!!! Now I just have changed it because it functions and reminds me of one of the many reasons why I'm so lucky he's now an ex :p

    I've also done the carport/pulling in with the bike on the roof...but only once. I have a friend who's done it about 3 x's!!!!!

    Your supposed to run into things on a bike, part of the fun.

    I flew off the trail a few months ago and hit a tree. I was expecting it to really hurt but it turned out to be a very rotten tree and I actually knocked it over. I thought it was great until the top part of the tree which had broken off crushed me like a bug.

    I once backed over a backpack full of books. Messed some of them up. I jumpkicked my car.

    My mom once backed into the garage door. It was open and she hit the button out of habit and started backing out. Smashed the whole back window:rolleyes:

    My girlfriend.

    It was in a super secret maneuver to get a hotel room with 5 people in a room they only allowed 4 into at the "El Joker Hotel" in Mexico. We had her army roll out of the car while moving (only going a 1mph or so) and when she jumped out she somehow managed to get her foot under the tire. After parking the car and meeting her around the corner we were laughing so hard at our lame little stunt we had no idea anything happened she was on the ground laughing so we figured she thought it was REALLY funny (we had no idea we had run her over yet). Then she tells us we ran her over, we laughed more. Now her ankle hurts and/or itches every time its cold out. Now she can remember me forever. She forgave me. =]

    I managed to put my trailer hitch through the hull of a $2,500 carbon fiber canoe. Dark outside + dark canoe + smashed backup lights = VERY sad me.

    I side swiped my wife's "sporty car" Mits. Eclipse with my Ford Escort backing out my driveway for a mtb ride.

    The Escort took the worst of it.

    my mom backed over a small streetlight once
    the car was on top of it, put a pretty big dent in the bumper but that's about it
