I got a bit intoxicated last night. I was messing around with the ironing board (god knows why), and I saw that the iron was about to fall off. So, natually I grabbed it. I placed my whole thumb and "joint" area of my hand on the metal part of the iron. I pick it up, and HOLY SHIT, it's on! Oh my god that hurt like no other thing. Today, it's all blistered up. Funny thing is, the pain from the burn/trama of it happening seemed to multiply the effects of the alcohol I had dranken. I can usally hold my drinks extreamly well. Not last night though. Had ice on it all night, it still hurts. Funny thing is, I look at the iron today, and the switch is in the "off" position. NEVER LEAVE YOUR IRON PLUGGED IN!!!!

Why do drunk people feed the need to fuck with everything they own right before they go to sleep? [;)] 1. Ease up on the liquor (or not). 2. Lock up the guns.

Geesh You do have a problem with electrical things.

Good thing you didn't decide to screw with the blender.

Man, you have a difficult time with mechanic/electrical objects. First the Zippo, now the iron, whats next? Checking a leaky gas stove with your Zippo? Dude, do us a favor. Lock up the liquor cabinet and your firearms. Start collecting the "For Dummies" books and read all of them.

I would agree. I know people who had an iron start of small fire because it melted, even with the switch on the off position.

I think we should call for alcohol registration to prevent this from happening to someone else.

AND background checks for all iron purchasers. If it saves one life, it will be worth it! [rolleyes]

The only good thing irons are good for is making grilled government handout cheese sammiches. I just don't understand why people bother ironing clothes since they just get wrinkled again anyway.

It's my fault. The thread was clearly titled. Why would I read and then respond to a thread about an un-plugged iron ? If I'm this bored I may as well go back to work on my "Rev. Al Sharpton for President" posters. [smoke]

Actually, the clothes do stay unwrinkled, unless they get wet, or you purposly, and forcefully bunch them up. Maybe if you ironed your clothes, your apperence would get better, and in turn, you would get more "womenz". If I was a chick, I wouldn't want a man in wrinkly clothes.

Imbroglio, man! Have you ever TRIED the government cheese. On a dare, I got a "cheese card" in college back in 1987. Picked up 3 "bricks" of that cheese one week. You couldn't melt it with a torch, the stuff is polymerized and nuclear-hardened.

I'm always surprised about the personal screw-ups that unknown people admit to on this board. Absolutely amazing.

...so I cast my eyes across the web looking for the Coalition for Iron Control. Google returned a recent news article showing an example of what has been achieved with 'iron control' in this nice little country called Afghanistan: [URL]http://www.smh.com.au/news/0111/19/world/world2.html[/URL] I'm sure they had the right idea controlling those dangerous and horribly mutilating irons. After all, no one NEEDS an iron. Unless it has a militia purpose as per the Marshall decision. Like, er, pressing freshly laundered uniforms or something. Though my friends in Iron Control Inc tell me that that sort of thing would probably be a collective right and wouldn't apply to individuals anyway. [:)>] (goatee icon chosen as there were no sheeple icons) Seriously, a former roommate managed to burn an iron-shaped hole in my carpet. It seems that the lack of 'smart' features on the part of either my roommate or the iron or possibly both allowed the iron to rest face down on the carpet until an acrid burning odor was noticed from the next room...
