Funny.

Eloquent commentary on why I don't, as a rule, touch tools. Nothing good ever comes of it.

Every time I see this list go 'round the aether, I'm compelled to point out that this was originally written by Road & Track's Peter Egan, a fellow sufferer of lil' furrin' car dementia.

Trouble lights are also a good source of random burns when you bump it working on something.

Just thought I'd bring this http://booksbikesboomsticks.blogspot.com/2006/11/maybe-if-i-make-this-statement-public.html back into view for the readership.

You can also use a trouble light to burn down your garage if there are fuel vapors around and you drop the light, breaking the bulb.

hence the names "drop light" and "trouble light".

I got a huge giggle out of that link. I need to do a version of that for bead/jewelry making. Grinding wheel hijinks, monkey shines with molten slag glass igniting the toe hair on your little hobbit feet so imprudently shod in sandals. Of course, that's all hypothetical--I'm imagining what it must be like. I especially don't have hairy hobbit feet.
