Kaol and his joys of health and safety reminded me of how much I hate it, pointless waste of time that it always seems to prove itself to be.

One of my best recent examples would be while in a workshop in uni gluing to plastic together, using some of that fancy glue that melts the two bits of plastic together so they become one big stuck together piece.

Remember: glue = melted plastic.

So I went into the workshop, and even went over to the sink in case I made a mess, and I started to glue away. I had 6 parts to glue onto a central piece in total, so I started.

Piece 1 done no bother. Piece 2 done no bother. Piece 3 done with bother? No, with no bother.

At this point a lab technician comes over to me.

"Got to wear gloves and goggles to use that stuff. Health and safety, y'see." says he.

"I've got to wear plastic gloves and plastic goggles to use the glue that melts plastic?" replies I.

"Yeah, health and safety."

"You are aware this glue will melt the protective garments you are forcing me to don?"

"I suppose, but health and safety."

So at this point, I waited until he wandered off, continued gluing with no safety precautions, and then glued a glove to some goggles as a form of protest.

Yay, other people hate it too.
Recently I've taken to just blatently ignoring stupid health and safety. Match flicking was a good example of this.....
