Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

Exhaust manifolds are hot

And you should not grab them to steady yourself while cleaning out your snowblower's chute and suddenly slipping on some ice in the walk.

Not that I did so deliberately...

Don't feel bad ... my ex-husband slipped on the ice while fiddling with his snowblower, caught his finger in something and broke it (his finger, that is).

Scary machines, snowblowers.

In a related morality tale, soldering irons are also hot, and you should check to see if they've cooled down before picking them up by the tip.

Mat -

I've done that, too.

Dana -

Ouch. I've already got one crooked finger, I don't need any more. :)

I can share that machetes are sharp, and if one falls from a shelf you shouldn't try to catch it...

...and don't throw a toliet role to somebody breaking a light fitting, then clean the glass out of the uplighter with the power still on and touch the bulb.

Not very painfull but very shocking.

Don't try and hold hedge trimmers by the blade. Certainly not until the blades have stopped, anyway.

When playing darts, and a dart should fall
out of the board, one should remember that
a dart is not a hackysack that one has learned
to keep aloft by kicking with ones shin.
It hurts!
