Someone has to try it

Every warning label, every rule and every seemingly arbitrary designation was born out of some incident. Somebody ate that silica packet and suffered for it. More than a few people dove into that pond with an alligator in it. Plenty of folks have to be told not to play with electrical wires.

So, one curious Redditor decided to gather those people under one roof. He asked, outright, who among the masses had a rule written specifically because they had conned the system (or done something exceptionally stupid).

We’ve gathered a few of the most clever (and dumbest) below. Read on and be inspired to exploit the technicalities in your own life.
