My Dan Hughes Tragedy

My 'Dan Hughes' story occurred back in High School when I was stupid as 
to the ways of the mechanical world.  I had a 1977 Honda Civic, and it 
was my first car waith a manual transmission.  I was sitting in it in the 
driveway after school one day, and a thought crossed my head.  "I wonder 
if the engine will start with the car in gear?"  I put the transmission 
in first, turned the key, and sat helplessly as my car bounced into the 
garage door.  I couldn't stop laughing when it actually bounced backwards 
from the garage door.  When I cut the engine off, my first action was to 
quickly look around to make sure no one had seen me.
