    Oh man...

    I should have my Niece sign up so she can win the prize, she did something really stupid a couple of weeks ago. She has a pit bull and it was being attacked by a neighbors pit bull in her front yard. Dumb as she is, she tried to get them apart. When she reached down to grab her dog, she slipped and her hand went into her pits mouth. She is now minus the tip of her ring finger. The enclosed picture is not for the squeamish! All others enjoy
    The injury is an unfortunate 10. This also gets a "break my heart" award. This really stinks. Stupidity is not a factor as I can bet she was only trying to protect her dog. Loss for words here.

      My mistake, please forgive me. I thought she was just a youngster! He!! yes, sign her up. That's a dandy and the intelligence required to engage in such an act is truly worthy of serious consideration.

      My apologies,

        That's why I asked. I figured she was young, as well.

            No winner

            Well, there is no winner, because none of you sent in your votes
            It's midnight here, though I could see by the time on my last post, the time is kind of screwy...I don't know how Miller makes that "clock"...
            Which is all good, because this thread, like all others, is for teaching others about welding, safety and just to have some fun, and no one was expecting to win anything by submitting their story but sharing a laugh and teaching the young guys about the dangers of welding...(with Signwave being an exception)
            Hey, at least all of us got to see what TacMig looks like, right?!!
            thank you for playing along anyway...

                I saw this a while ago. What's the story behind it? No doubt entertaining and worthy of said award. I've just always wondered what happened?

                    I am not knowing

                    My guess is that he made a ppe bmb. It went off in his face and that was that.... The pic was entitled "fireworks accident" Im glad that wasnt me cuz' that would REALLY suck. If he did use bird shot rather than buck shot , Maybe he should try again and try reading the side of the cartridge first....

                    cant even suck his dinner through a straw...

                          Hey TacMig, Do you remember....

                          Do you remember that YouTube vid clip I sent you of the kid throwing the "thermobaric" device? I suspect that this would have been a likely cause of the injuries suffered by dufus in my last posts.


                          ANYWAYS BACK ON TOPIC.

                          Since this post now has some 11000 veiwings, There must be other stories out there or are we the only people in Cyberspace that are so dexterously challenged?

                            Fireworks???

                            One of the guys in the shop said this is an old, old photo of a fireworks tech. He said he doesn't remember how it happened but was an accident of some sort during a large 4Th display.?? I guess if one wanted to, they could spend some time researching??

                              Thats what he gets for doing this in the work place.

                                I did do the research on it and came up with this. He was shot in the face at close range with a high caliper hand gun. Here is the link if anyone is interested but be warned, there are several other pics, some DOA.
