    Stupid but funny accident - it had to happen to me...

    Well, after chopping the end off one of my fingers on my left hand earlier in the year I'm now sporting another injury to another digit on the same hand, sustained in rather a freakish but 'why are we not surprised?!' kind of accident.

    Anyone care to guess what I did? A clue is that the current weather played a part.

    you froze your digit to something metal and made a mess of it when you pulled it away?

    Okay, over the last few days we've had some pretty spectacular icicles form on our guttering along with everybody else in our street thanks to the weather. Rather than let them get too big and heavy and pull the guttering down, I decided it would be a good idea to get a long metal pole and tap them off. I thought I was being pretty sensible about it by holding the pole up at an angle and making sure I was no-where near underneath the damn things as they fell to earth. I'd just got to the end of one side of the house and there was just one left - a blighter about 18" long and shaped like a javelin.....

    ...I tapped it, it fell a couple of feet, bounced off the pole just as I was withdrawing it, and launched itself at me, squarely skewering the middle finger of my left hand.

    Blood everywhere and my wife and daughter haven't stopped laughing yet.

    Wow, that is different
    At least on the bright side, unlike most other skewerings it's just a case of waiting for it to melt than cutting it away

    Lol, so now my latest claim to fame is that I was once attacked and stabbed by an icicle. I'm just so glad I didn't have to go to a&e; my wife works at the hospital and I'd never had lived it down.
