    I can tell you without even referring to the rulebook that it does not count. However, I'm sure I'm not alone when I ask that you share your photos in the event it may have potential for a serious "oooh-ahhhh that's gotta hurt".

        I worked for about a month for a sculptor that made large fabricated steel sculptures (incidentally he didn't actually do any of the fab'ing himself). So I was doing a quick re-grind on something without gloves. Unbeknownst to me, one of the other guys had doubled up the sanding pads. So I had turned off the grinder and set it down and while it was slowing down, my knuckle brushed against the edge of of sanding pad and sawed it strait down to the bone. Sucked it was my first day on the job.

          get this

          One of my favorite sayings for fellow coworkers and other selectively chosen

          So your (insert age here) Huh? How did you ever get to be that age???

          Im a pretty smart guy. (at least I think so)
          I speak a couple of languages, Have an avid interest in electricity, I weld of course, fabricate, design, run CNC machinery&My sign shop, I love chemistry and geology. And amoung my other talents, I play guitar and Im an avid firebug (pyromaniac for you connoiseurs) So, I see my "Stupidity" this way. If I didnt do those things I would have never taken a risk and that means I would never have learned anything. Cause and effect. Action - reactions.

          As long as I dont lose any bodyparts or get maimed (badly) Its all good - more or less. Mostly ive learned never to do that again but there are other lessons that are profound... hehehe... When running down the halls in an attempt to get to class on time, DO NOT smack the se xy girls a$$ on your way by or you may get distracted and end up going through the door in an inappropriate fashion....

          Monte, I finally got my table... I still have all my fingers and no holes where they dont belong!!


          So, uh, does anyone wanna give me a job? Im real good. sometimes Im even gooder than that!

              Oh for pete's sakes!

              You have to be kidding? Using a grinder to cause bodily harm is rookie stupidity. In fact I think that the committee needs to assemble and rule that "unless a grinder removes a finger or the like, that all grinder entries shall not be considered". However to rule out any due stupidity, the potential entrant should always post with photos for the enjoyment of the other contestants and viewers.

                  I just kind of keep popping up everywhere. As long as the injuries remain at altitude, I can handle it.

                      Well I wasn't asking to be considered..

                      How about shearing the top half of my right index finger off working on a project for my parents at their house in San Diego (I have all my woodworking tools there), but I couldn't let them know what had happened since my mom would freak out. So I just put a big band aid on and finished the project. It took about a year, but it grew back almost totally.

                        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

                                In Jan of 07 had a ladder slide back wards when I was 19ft up. Just set my tool bag of the roof(I do commercial HVAC). 4 days in the hospital. 5 hours in surgery. Broke both thumbs and messed up the left wrist (will have to be fused in the future). Have carpal tunnel now. 7.5 months of comp. Thank GOD someone was working with me that day.

                                On the upside I can tell you if it will rain tomorrow better then the weather man

                                Won't mention any others.
