    Never a screw, but nail gun, TWICE, slow learner. One nail through the finger, the other in the wrist.
    If God didn't want us to eat animals... He wouldn't have made them out of MEAT.

    When we were building dads house, mom was holding the studs as dad was nailing them. Guess one of the nails curled out and hit moms finger. Guess she learned to not hold he hands so close to the bottom plate.

    Dad said he was building a railing for steps and shot a finish through his thumb and pointer finger. That one had to suck pulling out.

    Two separate times, and the nails were framing nails. I actually went to the ER for the wrist one. The nail was pretty deep.

    I put a screw in my hand in front of my wife, she didn’t know it happened at first. I looked at her and said ‘this is going to hurt’ she asked ‘what will’ as I slammed the drill into reverse and shouted a couple profanities.

    At least some people are smart enough to back it out. I jerked my finger back, made it worse. I've checked many containers of zip-screws, NONE of them have a warning! Suppose we could file a class action suit? John
