Stupid Things You Do!

Thu Nov 23, 2006 12:01 am

I have just done something I haven't done for years. I was slicing mushrooms to go in the chilli I was preparing whilst having a natter with a friend. I looked away for a moment and yep, not the mushroom being sliced but my thumb. Thankfully, the nail stopped the knife from doing too much damage. It's just that, after so long a period since this happened last, I felt sickened. OK now though. Finished the preparation and dinner is cooking. Tis just a bugger though. For that moment of distraction. Hmmm! Used the knife again but, with a bit more respect. Bleeding sore thumb though  ouch

I agree...I learned last year not to iron and talk on the cell phone at the same time. Ouch.

Fun coincidence, I learned recently that it is much better to iron the clothes after you take them off.

I cut my finger opening a can of soup...I felt very stupid cus I had to go to emergency room. When they ask how did I cut myself, I answered I was trying to open a can of soup. You can totally tell the nurse and the doctors were trying very hard not to laugh.  Sad

I play badminton a lot, most of the time I will actually run off the court to get a shot, even if my return subsequently hits the net or goes out and I lose the point. I also don't think anything of throwing myself across the court to grab a shot, something which results in many grazes and bruises when I land, although it does somewhat defeat the opposition mentally as almost all of the time I win the point!

I learned that its better to spend the extra ten seconds going around the end of the fence than over it. Just like stepping on a rake, the fence plank I leaned on for support pivoted on the crossbrace and smacked me in the head. Then, it was ass-over-applecart backwards to the ground. I thought for sure I'd broken my neck, but the collarbone was all that suffered.

Recently a buddy of mine did something like this, this is not him but very similar what happened to him though, hilarious.

Something really stupid happened to me at the gas station yesterday. Usually I am driving cars which need regular fuel so I am used to grab the "Ultimate 100" pump at the gas station to fill up the car. I did the same yesterday but the problem was that I have an Audi A6 with Diesel engine since a few days, I noticed my mistake after I already put approx. 12 liters of regular fuel into the tank, I stopped immediately, grabbed the Diesel pump and filled the rest of the tank with it. Nothing strange happened till now, the car is behaving normal.  relieved

Forgetting to clean sensor after switching lenses all day long:

70-200L to 100-400L to 70-200L to 100-400L to 1.4x with 100-400L to 70-200L.

Then next day after forgetting to clean after the change: 70-200L to 300L with 2x to 300L without 2x to 70-200L with 2x and 1.4x to 100-400L with 2x and 1.4x to 100-400L without 2x and 1.4x to 70-200L.

Ok wow... and that made my acceptance ratio fall down like an elevator that has lost its cables down to 72%!  crying  Of course 'cause of dust spots.

Ah, I'll remember next time.  Smile

PS: Yeh, I change lenses a lot.  Smile

I cut my finger opening a can of soup...

Hah, literally 15 minutes ago, while cutting up onions, I sliced the palm of my left hand. The only bandaid I could find was a small one, which was soaked in 10 seconds. So my makeshift bandaid consists of paper towel + scotch tape.

I'm hoping the damn thing clots so I don't have to go get stitches......

And needless to say, I don't think this batch of cooking will come out all that well....I'm kinda pissed off about cutting myself.

I tried to use my car's keyless entry thing on my keychain to open my house doors once.

I was so tired, I stood there for 3 full minutes not being able to figure out why the door wouldn't open.

Ouch!...disinfect the palm thoroughly!  Smile I used up half roll of paper towels just to get to the emergency room...almost sliced my whole finger off!  Sad That was a nightmare...and that's why I haven't cooked (or drink canned soup) in a while.  silly

I tried to slice hard crusted bread with a fillet knife... Afterwards I had to clean the way from my kitchen to the bathroom. I left a trace of drops of blood when I ran to get something to disinfect the wound in my hand palm. banghead

Hmmm, maybe I should cut myself every time I'm about to cook something.....doesn't sound too healthy.......

Well after having my front teeth knocked out, playing pick up hockey, I had my fake teeth knocked out 2 more times before I finally began wearing a helmet, then have put the cage back on as well. But I will point out that having your fake teeth knocked out hurts much less than your real ones.
Also wearing Doc Martens in the winter. I lose on average 1 work day a winter from busting my ass walking down stairs wearing Docs while icy. I love my docs, but again this year I have put them away for the winter. Unless I am going out to the pubs. Which I guess doesnt make sense, wearing docs when its icy and while im drunk will make for worse than a hangover the next day.

MAN! That's just cruel for the doctor to laugh like that. I'm very afraid of earth worms, I was once tripped by the pavement because I was trying to avoid the earth worms on the lawns.  Sad Everybody laughed...:'(
