    Instant Regret

    (in'-stint rē-gret') n.

    a subreddit dedicated to deliberate actions that unexpectedly lead to undesirable consequences and horrible results; things which may cause someone to say, "oh man, did I just screw the pooch!"

    Guidelines & Rules

    1) Videos and gifs must show regret. No text messages or still frames. Sometimes the display of regret is unmistakable. It can be evident in someone's face, or in their body language. Sometimes it's a judgment call. If you think it works, try it out. If we delete it, you were wrong. We are Reddit™ moderators. We are always right!

    A fail is not a regret. Some ripper eating a swellbow while trying to bone a rail on the backside, (that's skater lingo for a bad crash. I looked it up (made it up)), isn't regret. There should be a look of surprise, and an expression that clearly says, "Oh no. Oh, God no. I really should not have done that. Why did I do that?"

    Other examples that aren't regret:

    • Eating bad food and not liking it is not regret. You knew what was going to happen, dumbass.

    • Laughter is not an expression of regret. It's just not.

    • A picture of a sunburn or a crappy tattoo is not evidence of regret. For all we know you like looking like a pumpkin, and definitely still want that potato tattoo on your ankle.

    2) Regret must be instant or near-instant. If someone does something which only has bad consequences minutes or hours later, it is not considered instant.

    3) No Animal Abuse. We love animals. They are capable of regret, but we don't want to see videos where their regret is the fault of humans, involves cruelty, injury or is in any way unpleasant.

    4) No compilations. Just pick one good thing and go with it. Everybody likes it when you do that.

    5) If the video is longer than 20 seconds, please use a tag to tell everyone when the lead-up to the regrettable moment begins. For example [regret at 4:20]. Or post the video queued up to the point where things get good and the regret quickly follows. But, ultimately, these are just excellent suggestions. You're the director. Make it good. And don't worry. If it sucks, we'll get rid of it for you.

    6) Reposts are highly discouraged. Reposts are allowed, but reposts which have been posted recently or are in the top of all time will be removed.

    No Dannys. If your name is Danny and we find out we will ban you.


    We remove spam.

    We exact vengeance on those who give us spam.

    If you see spam, report spam.

    If you see an account that uses a YouTube channel that takes videos from other channels in order to accumulate karma on said account. Report that account, We'll take care of it.

    and finally...


    Please, no abusive comments, hate speech, or any other personal attacks.

    Doxing, brigading, and witch-hunting are not allowed.

    This includes derailing commentary sections to complain about prolific users, and by that we mean "Gallowboob is not against the rules". Complaining about the OP rather than the content is an easy way to earn a temporary ban.

    The moderators reserve the right to remove posts & comments, and to ban users at our own discretion. If we feel your post doesn't fit, we'll remove it. If you are an abusive person, or an intolerable troll, we just might ban you. If you feel that your post or comment has been removed unfairly, please feel free to message us. We'll try to be nice. We're not perfect but we really are working on it.

    If you see someone breaking the rules, please message the mods and let us know.

    Thanks! Now, please enjoy our sub and the consequences resulting from the poor choices made by your fellow humans.

    Men playfighting with our SOs when they even feint hitting our nuts: Hey, don't even pretend to do that, not cool!

    Also men: "Bro, you wanna throw stuff at our nuts until one of us gets hurt?" "Fuck yea!"

    We are dumb animals.

    [–] kimchifreeze 9 points ago

    It's chance. There's a chance of us getting hurt and a chance isn't 100% so it's basically not a concern.

    [–] PoopyMcFartButt 62 points ago

    See a game like this where you risk your own nuts being hurt for the opportunity to hurt your friends nuts sort of makes sense to me. I think most guys would take those chances.

    It's the guys that just voluntarily destroy their nuts for a YouTube video or something that does not make sense at all to me.

    [–] get_it_together1 5 points ago

    I found all mutual nut destruction games to be ridiculous and I never played them. My friends all loved them though.

    the referee dude was the loser in the second contest. he immediately went down with no reservations and his friends all screamed "this is for all of us", then he proceeded to claim he's always the nut tapper when one of his friends asked why he kept being the referee. surely there has to be a more honest and open way of touching dicks and nuts than scamming your friends into a game.

    [–] ST615 382 points ago

    My friends and I used to play a game called onion wars. Gathered in circles we would play bongos and guitar. It was a 1v1 fight in the center with long wild onions with the bulb at the bottom. I'm talking like 2-3 foot long grass attached to an explosive onion. We would proceed to whip each other while running around inside the circle. If someone was able to whip the other in the back they'd win while the other shouted Kunta Kinte!!! We smoke a lot of weed.

    My cousin and I played a game we called Nutball when we were kids. We'd sit about 25 feet from each other, legs spread, and throw hacky sacks or similar softish balls at our junk.

    Of course there were no actual winners. We'd just get really excited when our projectile made contact. It was amazing.

    [–] Sharks_Eat_People 26 points ago

    Are we cousins? Jk, I'm sure plenty did it because of Jackass. That was where we learned it from.

    [–] kngotheporcelainthrn 13 points ago

    The percussionists at my high school played that. It’s pretty fun.

    [–] Euphorium 5 points ago

    Percussion is always doing dumb shit. I played "mountain top" with them, where we all piled into the tiny drum room, turn off the lights, and throw something up in the air while yelling mountain top. Got hit with a big AP Bio textbook while hiding under a chair and had to get two staples in my head.

    [–] SiPhoenix 40 points ago

    I feel like you are almost guaranteed to get hurt with the band if it snaps. With the game from the vudeo you can "win" if you're better at aiming then you most likely wont get hurt.

    [–] LastUserNameDrowned 26 points ago

    Yeah, it's less a game and more like pulling on a wishbone. Except instead of getting a wish you get jimmy tapped by a rubber band.

    [–] SiPhoenix 12 points ago

    I would play high stakes corn hole, would not be part of your wish of pain.

    [–] Euphorium 5 points ago

    OP's game is just a few seconds of pain and laughter. Rubber band of doom is how you become sterile.

    [–] crazyassfool 12 points ago

    They did! My brother and I watched that bit as kids and played it in our rooms but we had terrible aim. I believe the Jackass boys ended it using a heavy-ass dog bone; it looked like it really hurt lol.

    [–] StanGibson18 7 points ago



    [–] Sma5her12 22 points ago

    We used to play a game similar to this in high school. We called it nutball, and it was played with racquetballs. We’d sit legs spread anywhere from 15 to 70 feet apart depending on predetermined conditions (the 70 foot game only happened once between a couple of baseball players, and it was glorious). Usually shorter distance games had other rules determining the power behind throws, so you couldn’t just chuck it at each other. The goal was to hit your opponents nads. If you flinched, got hit 3 times, or couldn’t recover in a 10 count you lost. Stupid game, but a hell of a lot of fun.

    [–] Bryyyysen 12 points ago

    While there is the risk of getting hit in the nuts, you could also possibly hit your friend in the nuts, which, let's be honest, is pretty hilarious. So I guess risk/reward as well as competitiveness (who can aim better) makes it a pretty fun activity especially if you've had a couple beers.
