I think mine was in the 9th grade... in Math class...
We were in the middle of a test and I let out a very audible fart... and was sent out into the hall for the remainder of the period...
Needless to say, I had the nickname "Puff, the magic dragon" for a while after that...No one dies a virgin, Life screws us all.

haha those are pretty good. I remember one day in gr 9 geography, i was pretty bored and was chewing on my red pen, and was also kinda tapping it on my top lip, and wouldnt you know it, it had broken. My teacher looked over at me to see red all under my nose and on my bottom lip. He thought i was like dying, and i had no idea what he was talking about. It was really quite embarassing.
I remember a few years ago i was snowboarding, and as i got off the chairlift, i happened onto the side of the landing pad that had had all the snow pulled off of it, so it was only a steel grate. I of course fell right on my face, and with my (i thought at the second) "cat-like reflexes" to spin over onto my back and flatten out so the chair wouldnt hit me. Once it passed over me i rearranged my board so i would be able to roll back over my head and stand up, and i stuck my head up to get a roll started. Caught a high-speed quad right in the face. Didnt really hurt, but it was pretty embarassing. (lucky there was noone on it i guess tho)

Oh I'd say my most embarassing moment would have been in the guy's locker room. We'd been having trouble (back in highschool) with some guys getting rowdy and fighting in the locker room--so the coach was waiting on the other side of the door for us to do something stupid. Naturally one of my friends starts throwing some of another guy's crap around the room, and a big ol' can of Brute body deodorant came flying out. The cap hit the edge of a bench just perfect so that it would blow the nozzle off and force it to blow its contents out. So there we are in the locker room laughing our arses off as this can spins about the floor making quite a stench (that stuff smells terrible!) So the guys start tossing it around, using it, blasting friends with it--eventually tossing it in a 55 gallon plastic trash can in the back of the locker room. Someone gets a bright idea and opens a zippo lighter. As I walk by the trashcan on my way out of the room, the zippo lighter flies by me, and a whole roar of anticipating laughter starts up. I take off running as the lighter is in mid flight to escape the wrath just as the coach opens the door. Out of panic I try to stop and more than likely deliver a "I didn't do it face," just as the trashcan behind me explodes--sending trash and paper towels showering across the room.
The other was probably being at a table of college guys that were tossing out some of the most awful racist comments about this homosexual african american guy that goes to my university, just as he walks behind us/me.

A long while ago, I was skiing (still a beginer at the time). I had a crappy pair of hand-me-down skiis and boots. I got the nerve up to finally go ahead and "bomb" one of the runs that I was on. The simple term for tucking in and shooting down the mountain at top speed.
I shot down the mountain like my arse was on fire! As the slope started to turn, there was a ski school just around the bend, that couldn't be seen from where I started from... And I was going about a GAZILLION miles an hour. I couldn't breath!
Luckily, I didn't hit anyone, but I heard the instructor yell "Don't ski like that guy!"
Towards the end of the ski school, there was a little snow drift that launched me higher than a space shuttle. Problem is, since I had the hand-me-down skiis, my right one decided it didn't want to play anymore and separated itself from my boot - mid air. So there I am, three thousand miles an hour, air borne, and with only a left ski. Needless to say, I exploded when I hit the ground. My freinds said it looked like something you'd see on the wide world of sports.
I remember catching a glimpts of the ski that didn't like me, tumbling end over end. I skidded for probably 100 or 150 yards down the rest of the run. I found the ski in the snow, threw it on, and jumped on the lift again, before the instructor could catch up to me.
To tell you the truth, I've had better days.

of course....I now remember when I was in second grade and I caught my desk on fire
playing with matches
I lit one and blew it out...then Id turn around and say something to the kid behind me..."hey, I smell something burning"
like that, lol
then I lit the corner of a piece of paper on fire..blew it out etc
finally I went to far and couldnt get it out, lol
these were the wooden desks like a cabinet with the drawer missing...with the books etc stuff up in the desk
So smoke started coming out etc, lol
The teacher was real old....and there was a young sub (assistant teacher in training or whatever) in the back of the room grading papers
So the old teacher looked over at me and said "Is something wrong dear?"
And I said "there's a fire in my desk" lol
So the young teacher freaked out and came running up there....we had to do like a fire alarm...of course I was scared stiff, lol...had to go talk to the principle etc
pretty sure I got a good whipping for that one
