    moron of the week

    Old school charcoal bbq got for 20 bucks and made in CHCH years ago. happy
    Put radiator back in car after clean, ready to drive down to work 100 bucks-sort of happy
    pork roast to try on charcoal bbq -awesome
    Trying for the 3rd time to get the sodding briquettes going and used a capful fuel-not so happy.
    Some of the little bastards were hot.
    Upshot is when the capful went on fire and burnt my hand I've then jerked and splashed lit fluid all over my chest and arm.
    Had taken the greasy old workshirt off as I was about to have a quick shower while they got sorted.
    The end of the story has me in CHCH hospital last night with a bunch of bandages on me and possible 3 weeks off work if not more.
    Award goes to me.
    Typical-only been at the job since January so this will be a crowd pleaser.

    @Maca49 not clever enough to not do something so silly but very lucky to not have it go on my face so yeah. Well some people would agree with me about the face lol.
    I must state though because I wasn't in excruciating pain they sent me home so at least I got to sleep in my own bed so not as bad as it could be.
    The silver microbial (got that right?) bandages are pretty clever. The silver is meant to react and help stop infection.
    Doctor reckoned it is even better than Dettol which to me is not faint praise.

    Yup, if you use fuel to start it, start with the fuel. Never use fuel once you've tried.

    Heal well.

    Guy here got a faceful of flame listing his smoker, thankfully didn't inhale as it went up or that would have been very nasty.

    Heal well and lesson learnt

    Remember many moons ago teenagers in Dunedin sniffing petrol, then lighting smokes. From what I understand they pretty much exploded.

    @223nut thanks
    agreed
    BTW posting I suppose in the lessons learnt for idiots section but they don't have one
    Funny part was (mind you I did have a little shot of morphine and some giggle gas to help) when they were scrubbing and sterilising all the burnt bits and getting rid of the dead skin, the doctor commented on my remarkable pain threshold. My missus made a comment like "bastard wouldn't tell you if I he did !@#$ing asshole" as she got up to go to the toilet.
    I laughed, the doctor laughed...ahhhh...good times.
    He did suggest he would give me a certificate to say words to that affect and apologised for not being able to put it on my acc paperwork lol

    At guess I'd say you've accidentally qualified to go to the Burning Man Festival in the Black rock Desert, Nevada.
