    OUCH LTG!

    Last weekend I have a flakey switch so a ball is stuck in my PM, Pick up the front of the game and drop it to try to get some purchase, backglass falls right on my head. That hurt.

    Don;t worry backglass is fine

    I pulled a muscle or something in my upper back or chest moving a pin on sunday. I blame markmon though because it was dark at his house and I could barely see moving pin into my car

    I was sitting on the floor grabbing something and the soldering iron fell on my back while I was wearing no shirt, that was awesome!

    ouch ouch, I need to turn off pictures when I look at this thread. LTG that's nasty!

    jrivelli, I know it isn't funny cause it's happened to me one too many times as well when you don't put your iron in the holder and rest it sideways sticking out on some ledge or something because you just need to grab this one thing and then you turn around and get distracted and then all... OUCH!!!!! you realize you've been leaning against the iron for about 10 seconds.

    Pretty much exactly how it happens!

    The joke around our house is, The job isn't done till dad bleeds on it. Even when I go over to the kids house's to help with a project they always have band aides on the counter for me.

    I bought a pin from a guy that had the hellish narrow set of stairs with a 90 deg turn part way up but I wanted the pin so got setup and got 3/4 up and since I was at the top and walking backwards lost my footing and feel down with the pin literally pinning me down. No one else to help I had to do the bum crawl up the half dozen steps with the pin sitting on my lap as just couldn't stand up. The owner did awesome holding his end for those extended minutes - lesson I learnt when I see steps like that again - deal doesn't happen unless the pin is easy to transport.

    Lloyd, that looks like it smarts, rubs right on the pants.

    Lloyd, will you still be able to make the TPF?

    Yes. I'm guessing I'll be the slow guy doped up on a lot of Advil.

    If I lost the leg I wouldn't miss TPF.

    You should always wear shoes when soldering.

    Enough said,
