This is a question DIY disasters

I just can't do power tools. They always fly out of control and end up embedded somewhere they shouldn't. I've no idea how I've still got all the appendages I was born with.

Add to that the fact that nothing ends up square, able to support weight or free of sticking-out sharp bits and you can see why I try to avoid DIY.

Tell us of your own DIY disasters.

QOTW disasters
Inspired by this week's QOTW, I thought I'd try and fix a noisy extractor fan that ventilates one of the rooms here. Hoping I'd end up with a Laurel-and-Hardy-esque tale of slapstick and farce to share with the schadenfreude-loving QOTW masses, I set about repairing it. But to my utter dismay, I fixed it without any hilarious mishaps or painful injuries, so I have no story to post from that experience.

Length? I can't think of anything funny to put here.

Alright Kaol
I'm going to try masturbating with one of those things that jiggles paint pots.

But I want everyone to know that YOU started this conversation, I'm merely an innocent participant.

Monkeys? Goats?
I miss qotw for a day and find that there must have been some kind of bestiality thing going on.

Oh well, it's Wednesday.

It's like he's said what I've been thinking all week.

...well, obviously not everything I've been thinking, a post about former Emmerdale hottie Lisa Riley being drowned in an vat of the jizz of my army of goats wouldn't really be relevant to the QOTW.

is it just me, or is anyone else slightly worried about Chickenlady's post at the end of that thread?

I mean, she had goats? -What the flip happened to them then?!

*looks at al suspiciously*

No! I...

You know I love you. I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to make light of it, I know how you felt about those goats.
