CV of Failures

This “CV of Failures” was heavily inspired by the CV of Failures of Jessica Vitak. While academia is full of failure, we only know about the success of our peers. I think people should talk more about failure. Although I just started my academic career, I have failed a lot. Some examples are in the following (this list is incomplete; some are just too old that I cannot recall).
