    When you are gluing that pesky strip of weather strupping on the sliding door, don't put the paper towel that you moistened with mineral spirits to clean the surface prior to putting on the contact cement in your left front pocket of your jeans. You've been warned.

    What other words of wisdom do you have??

    Yup...same feeling, but think a little higher up the stupid list.

    I just can't not over fill it no matter how hard I try. Glad I'm not the only one.

    Pee before, not after you cut up ½ lb of habanero peppers.

    WI, i want my Walker back...
    lab techs where i worked used to use the same cups for coffee that they kept paint samples in while running viscosity tests. i was in the lab one day fixing one of their test machines when one of the tech's picked up a "coffee" colored paint sample and took a gulp. wow! hilarious reactions... really pretty serious though, i believe he spent sometime in the Emergency Room to get cleaned out. Obviously some Major Rule changes about drinks in the Lab...

    Back in the 80's, we were drinking beer and using a beer can for an ash tray. When It was time to go, guess which can I picked up to take the last swig?

    When I was five, we took a cross-country vacation and stayed in a motel.
    The maintenance man was throwing these hockey puck size chlorine tablets into the pool.

    I had no idea what they were, so I took one out of the pale and tried to hide it in my wet bathing suit.

    Never did that again!

    Many years ago I had a front porch light go out and stuck my hand in the housing to remove the burned out bulb. As soon as I stared to unscrew the bulb, about 20 wasps flew out of it and I was in more pain than you can possibly imagine. I yelled so loud that my family came running outside to see what had happened to me. I can't remember how many wasp stings I had but my fingers/hand hurt for several days. I learned a valuable lesson that day. Look first folks.

    Moral of the story........I think it's obvious what not to do.

    You don't tug on superman's cape
    You don't spit into the wind
    You don't pull the mask off that old lone ranger
    And you don't mess around with Jim.

    When I got a vasectomy 12 years ago they poured abut a half cup of rubbing alcohol across my nether region and it was like a virtual rainbow of sensations. I'm not looking to repeat it but it was a lot better than the time I cut up jalapenos before wizzing.

    I hooked up my dump trailer one day and as is habit for me, I turned on the lights and flashers to do a light check.
    The left flasher was out, so I got a screwdriver and removed the lens to find a busy nest of yellow wasps.
    I popped the lens back on and just made an effort not to turn left.

    so grateful to not have to carry or fill a zippo for the last 23 yrs. still remember the feeling and the red splotchy area on upper thigh from those overfills. not to mention the coughing and wheezing from the damn camel straights.
