Too many to pick from...

However one of the stupidest was during a high altitude trek in Nepal in the 80s. I got to drinking Chaang with the Sherpas despite a lecture from my doctor that the stuff did evil things to the body. The night passed well, I was really enjoying the Chaang and was comfortably numb.

The next morning however saw a monumental change in my life. There's no trees at 21,000 feet, no grass and 6 days of living hell followed as my bowels and stomach gained magical powers of evilness that resulted in the ability to empty themselves every few minutes via both ends of the system. It made Montezuma's revenge, Bali and Delhi Belly seem like walks in the park. Lomotil was about as effective as an umbrella in a bombing raid and I have never wished for death so earnestly.

Perhaps, I didn't become as close to my family as a son and brother should have.

I'm pretty sure that most are closer to their families than I am, or ever was. I went away from them at age 14 and have seen them about 6 times in the past 30 odd years due to work and committments away from home.
