So you're being robbed at gunpoint. What's the first thing that goes through your mind? For a Tufts University junior, it was the hassle of re-amassing his friends' phone numbers. "I don't know why—they have a gun pointed to me—[but] I'm like, 'Oh, I don't want to start one of these Facebook groups' " he told the Tufts Daily.

According to the potential victim's account, the robbers obliged our plucky hero when he asked them to let him keep his phone's SIM card, the chip that stores all of that vital personal data. After a mad scramble with his phone, a little white lie, and hiding in bushes, he managed to keep his wallet to boot, he told the Daily. There truly is a fine line between bravery and stupidity.
