Blood on the ceiling
I suffer from small lumps (cysts) behind my ears. One got infected once and I had to keep draining it. One morning it was especially angry and swollen so I stood in the bathroom looking in the mirror, pressing away trying to get it to rupture. Suddenly a stream blood shot 3ft across the bathroom and up the wall to the ceiling! It felt like something from a spoof movie and I was a bit freaked out, letting out a strange yell - it didn't hurt though.

Power tools are dangerous kids! :oP
When doing DIY, do you ever have those moments where you know what you are doing is silly and dangerous, but you continue anyway?

I was trying to plain a small piece of wood around the size of a large matchbox. Holding the electric plainer upside down, i tried passing the wood over the blade... it snagged and kicked the piece of wood away letting my hand hit the blade. In an instance the tips of my fingers were removed. It felt like being whacked really had with a ruler. No real pain at first.

I saw stars, hyperventilated and almost passed out because of the shock!

The damage is pictured here:

Amazingly, it healed perfectly, including fingerprints after many dressings got stuck to the wound.
