I once made a mistake about the purpose of squirrels' tails, my answer was that it was obviously intended for balance, and i accidentally clicked a completely different answer.

These were the most annoying occurrences, two of many.

Completely true! One time I was scrolling through the question, and I accidentally pressed a random answer that happened to be right. The same goes for picking an accidental wrong answer. It really sucks when that happens though.
