You caused it, but it was my own fault.

caused = concretely did something?
my fault = I asked/pushed/told you do do that?
it (what you caused) = action? problem? death? injury? feelings?

Was the problem related to any of these fields: health, security, embarassement, law, misunderstanding?
Was it a technical problem?
Any object involved/relevant? Or any other person?

Was it B's fault that A was in a position to do something? That something was in a position for A to interact with it? For example, do you own a pet? And it was your fault it broke something, because you left it out where the pet could reach it?

Was the problem related to any of these fields: health, security, embarassement a little bit of this, law, misunderstanding? <b<no>
Was it a technical problem? No.
Any object involved/relevant? Yes. Or any other person? No, watch fro FA though.

Was it B's fault that A was in a position to do something? That something was in a position for A to interact with it? Yope to both - neither describe the situation very accurately. For example, do you own a pet? And it was your fault it broke something, because you left it out where the pet could reach it? Nothing like this.

Does the "you" refer to one particular person ? A group of people? Members of this forum?

"my own fault" = Galfisk's fault?

Any relevant hobbies? occupations? sports? crimes? injuries? accidents? deaths? errors?

So A caused some "embarassing" problem by doing something involving an object, is that right?
Did he use this object? damage it? buy it? borrow it? lend it? lose it?
Is A the owner of the object? Or is B?
Is the object common? rare? valuable?
Is it some tool? vehicle? musical instrument? clothes?

Sorry for the "blind" questions but I guess you can't avoid that at this stage of the puzzle ;)

"my own fault" = Galfisk's fault? Indeed.

Any relevant hobbies? occupations? sports? crimes? injuries? accidents? deaths? errors? No to all.

So A caused some "embarassing" problem by doing something involving an object, is that right? Yope.
Your questions are hard to answer (and I suspect the answers won't help much). Can you rephrase them,based on the knowledge that "you" = LTPFers and "me"=GalFisk?

Is "it" something you do in your real life? Something you do online? Something you do within the forum? A specific incident IRL, online, or on LTPF? Does it involve non-LTPFers? A specific person/people?

Hint: "it" is a sequence of events.

***SPOILER***
Thanks for introducing me to the funniest TV show I've ever seen! Unfortunately, I discovered it on Thursday night, and sat here laughing my ass off until two hours beyond bedtime... I was having too much fun to care, but the next morning I turned off the alarm in my sleep (I do that sometimes when I'm too tired, quite annoying) and came 45 minutes too late for work.
Good work everyone, special thanks to Balin for obvious reasons.

Not sure whether to say "I'm sorry" or "You're welcome," so...both, I guess.

I have no choice but to watch it late at night, as the only time I get it is from midnight to 1 AM. Fortunately, it's summer, so I don't have to worry about getting up early. Come fall, though, I'll have college, so...we'll see.

As I said it was my own fault, I'm grateful in any case And since I always come on time otherwise, and have a great boss, it was no big deal.
I watched it on youtube, beginning with long long playlist of only "Scenes from a hat" clips.
