This is a question Cunning Plans

I once devised a totally foolproof cunning plan to attract the attention of bikini-clad women, which - as you might imagine - failed miserably. Ever come up with a cunning plan for something? Did it work? What went wrong? Do you look back through the filter of the years with a burning sense of shame?

On holiday in Mallorca
It was my family and another family sharing a house. They were our neighbours from back home, who had a kid same age as me.
We were just learning to swim in the pool, and had gotten fairly proficient swimming with flotation aid. Our dads put to us a challenge: swim to the deep end and back with the flotation device without touching the sides earns you 300 pesetas (this was before the euro). Do the same but without any aid, and you get 500.

There was a tacky souvenir shop down the road that sold, amongst other things, this awesome keychain with a tiny "rambo knife". Dull as anything and really just a gimmick but I wanted it.

So my cunning plan was, do the swim with flotation device first, then later without, netting me 800 in total.

Scheming bastard that I was.
