Most of us have lived through the 'young-and-dumb' stages of our lives and its our duty to share these kind of stories with those that have not.
Sounds as though you've got a great attitude and learned from your mistake's.

Thanks for sharing.

Shortwave yes I have learned from many of my mistakes in life. Most of the lessons I remember the most I learned the hard way. I consider it a great blessing that I lived to learn from that one.
Grampa had a saying that still rings oh so true still today. "All men make mistakes in life. Those that learn from them become wiser. Those that refuse to learn from them continue past ignorance into foolishness." Experience is life's hardest teacher. Most times we learn the lesson after the test.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

Otto Von Bismarck said a wise man learns from his mistakes but he preferred
from the mistakes of others. You shared with us and made us wiser.
