    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.

    Default 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!

    I found a picture of one of TacMigs earlier injuries. This should prove that he is kinda accident prone

    Default 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.
