    While repairing a broken lamp I glued my index, middle finger and thumb to the Krazy Glue tube tonight.

    Started to panic and tried pulling the fingers apart but the skin felt like it was gonna peel off. After 30 minutes of prying without any success using soap, veg oil, alcohol, lighter fluid I thought it was going to have to be surgically removed so I went to the emergency room, waited 2 hours and they told me to go buy some nail polish remover and soak my hand in that for 15 minutes.

    Then drove to the strip mall and into Walgreens with Krazy Glue stuck to my hand. Got some more Krazy Glue on my pants while fumbling for my wallet and change, came home, soaked my hand in the acetone solution, and off the Krazy Glue tube came.

    Quite embarrassing shit. Lesson learned: Never apply Krazy Glue with the tip up.

    Awww earl I'm sorry. Glad it was easy to fix. Ummm be careful with super glue too. My aunt super glued fingers together. Are you okay now?

    Want to join me and rec3000 in Houston for some cheese stuffed ravioli? We're just going to eat, chat, and watch the crowds walk past.

    the dumbest thing I ever did:

    I was a kid at the time - riding my bike down a big hill near my house ...got something in my eye & instead of hitting the brakes, I took BOTH hands off he handlebars to rub my eyes...BIG mistake!

    I ended up careening down the hill & crashed into a parked car, ending up halfway under it...I was a bloody, mangled, crying mess and luckily a big kid I knew came along & picked me up & carried me home...he also went back & brought my bike home...

    If you know how to locate him, send him a note telling him you remember him doing that for you and thank him again. He might need a lift.


    Well, one time we were racing down the road on our bikes. I knew I had a loose rear fender. That fender slide down under the rear tire. Suddenly, I was air borne. It pealed the hide off me. Yikes, I still remember landing on the asphalt. yikes.

    OUCH! I know that must have hurt like hellfire!

    I haven't seen the guy in years...his family moved away a few years later...the funny thing is, before my mishap he had always been a real jerk to me & everyone else...if I ever do see him again, I will remind him of that day & thank him...

    Hmm, being a Jersey Girl I think we're immune to that kind of thing. :biggrin1:

    Yikes, I'm glad you survived! How sweet was that big kid to help you out like that and bring your bike back home.

    In Texas we have all kinds of cultures. You can eat any kind of food you want on any given day. We're going to hit a lot of them. TexMex is on the list. He likes pasta, and I'm in the mood for the ravioli. It was soooooo good when I had some in May. Maybe, I can have some in October. I wanna I wanna I wanna......

    The dumbest stupid ass shit... hmm, there's so much...

    It was about 4 months ago, I was running a wired network in my house and had gotten all the cables and such ran to a closet where all my network equipment was. Well I had brought my laptop into the closet to connect to the routers to configure them (_:router rip etc...) and after I had finished configuring them, I forgot that I had plugged into the router rack and when I grabbed my laptop and walked away from the closet I pulled about $3600 worth of network equipment down the hallway with me. Dumbest thing I have EVER done. Fuckin' 3600 USD!!!! **Jay's blood pressure rises significantly writing this.**

    Earl-Baby!! I can't tell you how many times I was almost in your position. I used to get sick of my kids' lego structures falling apart, so I would super-glue them together.

    I almost became the first human exhibit at LegoLand!!!

    Earl, they have planes. We can eat there in our minds. The world is your oyster, and life is it's pearl.

    Earl, I am sorry that you had a Tim Taylor experience. I am just glad you didn't get hurt. I had to go to the emergency room with a third degree burn from cooking. I was making taffy with cane syrup from Louisiana. It must have had some water in it because it popped. It left a scar on my arm. My body, my beautiful body.


    Oooo one time when I was little, I went flying out of the driveway on my bike. The end of the driveway was loose gravel. Well, I spun out, hit my chin on the road, and had to get stitches. That scar was always hidden until a couple of months ago. It's starting to migrate lower. I wonder if it'll be between my nipples when I'm 80?

    I asked my 3rd grade teacher if she was a virgin. I'd heard the words in a Revenge of the Nerds movie and didn't know what it meant. School was out, she was smiling and goodbye-ing kids, and I walked up to her and asked. Her facial expression was PRICELESS, it went from :biggrin1: to :eek: The next day the principal visited me in class and chastised me. I still didn't get what the big deal was.

    Port-o-Pottie bowling. We'd set them up in a triangle and see how many I could knock over by ramming it with my bronco. Those were the days...

    I've been to the Ben & Jerry's Factory tour. They do have every flavor at the ice cream stand at the end of the tour (even my fave, Vanilla Chocolate Chunk), and even a flavor graveyard. Sadly you do not get to choose the flavor of the free sample.

    The University of Pennsylvania has a course on making ice cream, and it's own factory. I have a video on a lot of places that make their own ice cream. I want to make a road trip. oooooo

    Dumbest thing I have ever....

    This may not be the dumbest since there some I've chosen (or tried) to forget but 8 years ago I was living in Hong Kong. I like spicy foods and while making dinner one evening was happily chopping away at some Thai bird shit peppers (if you've had them you know what I mean). It's often recommended that one should wear rubber gloves because the oils from the pepper will most assuredly burn. A lot.

    In the middle of this delicate operation the phone rang. Conversation over and having been distracted, I did my dumb thing. I went to the bathroom (with the chili oil still on my hands). Spent the rest of the evening sitting in a tub of cold water.

    Moral of this story: Either get someone else to chop the chilis or wear a diaper so you don't have to stop mid-chop.
