You cannot possibly call yourself experienced until you've seen this
happen. I watched superman finish a router cut, then lay the router
on its side on his bench next to a can of stain. The router was still
winding down. He snagged the cord, spun the router over and slit a
gash in the can. Superman does things super fast, doesn't pay
attention to what he does or what's around him, nor gives any thought
to a possible aftermath. And he has excellent hindsight.
On the silly things we do;
In a shop I worked in some years ago, another fellow was doing a "G"
job to take home. He was drilling a small hole in a bit of wood on
the drill press. Instead bringing the quill down into the wood, he
used his finger to support the piece from underneath and pushed the
wood up. At the last bit of wood, his hand jerked up and he drilled
a hole through his finger - bone and all. After freeing himself, he
ran into the office holding his finger and yelled "I drilled a hole
through my finger". The service manager, who was less than
sympathetic, looked over and casually said "What size?".
In all things there is humor - twisted though it may be.
