    Stuck a (small)drill bit through the upper part of my index finger today but missed the bone, yea! Thought about taking a pic but didn't have my camera. Pulled it out, taped it up and finished the call, of course. Went to the ER and got it checked out just to be sure. Now I can say I've done that. Just a reminded to everyone to be careful out there. Boy the nurses are getting younger at the hospital. NO I DON"T NEED A PITTY PARTY.

    I had my hand inside a piece of pipe and put a sheet metal screw through my left index finger. The point of the screw came through the fingernail. I could see a small swirl of meat sticking out of the hole in my finger after I reversed the drill. Man, that finger stung. It's still numb at the tip of my finger after four years. Didn't help matters that I put a drill bit through the same finger two summers ago, an 1/8" from where the previous screw went in.

    Doing that selfemployed, is just a reminder of why you don’t want to put a 3/8’s through your hand. Amazing how a fraction of a second, can give you years of wisdom.

    Was playing with a brad gun, shot one through 3/4 plywood and forgot to remove my index. Went all the way through and felt like you get shocked by 575V. Not pretty.

    I bet Liz is just like.... "You Poo Poo baby, come here!" LOL! Yea, no crap. Be careful! Now watch how much stuff you'll bump that finger into over the next 2 weeks.

    So, let me get this straight. You're not in this business for the money, I take it?

    All of us have done that one, I think it's a rite of passage.

    I've seen many pitures on the internet with young nubile girls with drill bits etc. in their butts. I wonder if they go to the ER to have them checked?
