I know I often go to questions about fails and mistakes and embarrassing moments. But they’re fun! They make us all relatable and human instead of inch-perfect, like people try to be online. And most of you don’t have your real names hanging out here, so it’s not so hard to really let loose and tell a great story.

  2. What was your least graceful sports moment ever?
  3. Do you have any hookup fail stories? Bonus points if they include ill-timed bodily functions.
  4. What is the most valuable thing you have ever broken? (Cars don't count unless it was a really nice car and/or not yours.)
  5. What was your biggest holiday fail? Ever given someone a horrible gift that they immediately hated?
