Do you ever think to yourself something along the lines of "Well, let's see. Everything is fine as long as I don't do X. X would be the stupidest thing I could possibly do." X is also something you wouldn't even have thought of doing if you hadn't thought about what the stupidest possible thing could be. Not even the worst thing, just the stupidest.

And then you do X, since you're thinking about it...

And then you sit around and wait for it to bite you on the butt, because you already know it probably will.

(This is along the lines of oidhche's hypothetical philosophical questions. I've done X once or twice lately, nothing important, cataclysmic or even particularly relevant, but it got me to thinking.)

Yep, and some of the Xes are biting me in the ass right now.
