Regrettable and Rewarding Things People Did Out of FOMO

Fear of missing out, also known as FOMO, can manifest itself as a sort of modified peer pressure or loss/risk assessment and make us do things we normally wouldn't want to. Sometimes that's for the better, like making us step out of our comfort zones and go skydiving or something. Other times it can end in eating a whole bunch of ants.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

Brash Dudes Engaging In Risky Maneuvers

This wouldn't be the human experience if people didn't take risks. Some, if not most or all of these particular risks are needless and stupid, but hey, it's hard to stop people from doing stupid risky junk. Every day there are people risking their necks for no good reason, and we get unapproved safety failures that OSHA wouldn't like.

People's Dumbest "High Risk Low Reward" Moments

People will do some incredibly dumb stuff and take some pretty big risks for almost no reason. We've all had those moments where we've thrown the odds to the wind for some trivial purpose, like free-climbing up the side of a building just to retrieve a Frisbee. A lot of times we frankly don't get paid enough o put ourselves in as much danger as we do. What's for sure is that some people just don't give a heck.

Safety Fails That Would Make OSHA Faint

Some OSHA regulations seem sort of strict and ridiculous, but some really bad safety fails make you concede the point that some rules are there for a reason. It's non an enviable situation to be in to have a boss who wants you to do some sketchy-ass moves just so you can replace a light bulb, but we've been there.
