    While trying to figure out which of my 60mm fans was quieter, I was running them naked.

    The first was a 5-watt OCZ Brand fan..... I cliped my finger in it, sent a fan blade across the room, and I have three cuts in my finger.

    I then put a band aide on, cleared my head... and connected the second fan.
    A thermal take 2-watt 60mm fan.

    I then clipped my OTHER finger in it!

    Moral of the story:
    MODDING HURTS!

    P.S. Peace :rock:

    couldn't you have been a bit more inventive with the plasters, I was expecting carbon fibre ones or something!!
    ouch on the fingers. I once managed to put a saw through my finger while cutting a tree, that hurt as well!

    Modding can be painful some times... I wonder why I have never got cuts in my fingers. I jam them into fans almost every day. Maybe my fans aren't powerful enough.
    I just came to think of a soldering iron experience of mine: Some years ago, when I had never heard of computer modding, and Bit-tech didn't even exist, I was doing some modding on my bike, which included soldering. Somehow I managed to burn myself like a hundred times, and the climax came when I dropped the soldering iron onto the underside of my wrist :eeek:. Got a nice burn there... Normal people would maybe go to the emergency room or something, or at least stand under running water for a couple of minutes, but not me; I tied a wet rag over the burn, and went shopping :hehe:
    I actually have no marks from that burn today, so I think my way of patching it up worked. We modders have an advantage when it comes to patching ourselves up after accidents...

    Well I am missing the center of my fingerprint on two of my right hand fingers.
    Instead of a swirl at the center the pattern gets random.
    That was from soldering.

    The one I broke is dead silent now....
    I think I will try and find a quieter one then both of these.
    (They both sound like a vacume)

    I changed my bandage on my index finger (which was cut the worst)
    It's pretty darn deep... four hours later and it was still wanting to bleed when I took the bandaid off.

    Oh I also forgot these:

    :( :wallbash: :duh:

    Been there! ;) When I did field engineering work fixing laser printers, I lost most of my fingerprints touching LaserJet fuser assemblies.

    o add to the list when I was cuttin g the window on one of my old AT cases I grabbed a chunk of it with pliuers in my right hand. I ripped it off. Unluckily I happened to have my left arm holding down the window. WHen I ripped it off I bent my right elbow towards me. This left two nice long gashes where the jagged metal scraped me.

    Instead of disinfecting it, putting on bandages, telling my parents, etc. I wiped the blood off and continued to cut my window.

    ahh the old "stick my fingers in a spinning fan and send high speed shrapnel from it flying across the room" I remember doing that to a 120mm fan Im glad it was only 3000 RPM but it still hurt.
