    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.

    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.

    Default 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...
