I was cleaning (or trying to) a chain saw chain by holding it against a wire brush in a bench grinder. The brush grabbed he chain and whipped it around, taking bites out of my hand and requiring a visit to the ER. Talk about stupid. Don't try this at home.

Rolled over in bed and possibly tore My rotator cuff. MRI tomorrow. Beat that. Was not even conscious and did a boo-boo.

Injured while asleep in bed; that just isn't fair!
But the chainsaw blade story... WOW. Ron, you're lucky something really bad didn't happen.

I've just ruined my good clothes with ammonia solution , but after you guys told your tales I'm proud to go around town with my bleached spots.
