o.k. i'm in a lot of pain right now and i need to laugh about this, so here goes. Background: my personal vehicle is a 1999 chevy malibu LS. sometimes at work i drive a 1996 ford explorer police package. FACTS: #1 the ignition on my personal vehicle is located on the dash on the right of the steering wheel. #2 the ignition on the ford explorer is not there, the cigarette lighter is #3 someone left the cigarette lighter out of the the socket in the dash of the ford explorer. #4 guess what happens when you, out of habit, because the dash is where your ignition on your personal vehicle is located, try to insert the ignition key into the cigarette lighter.

DC is amazingly powerful huh?!? Damn, dude hope it wasn't your shooting hand! Whiskey won't cure it, but it sure couldn't hurt!

actually it WAS my shooting hand. my fingernails are black, melted the end of the key and arm is numb, met a hot nurse, though.

OUCH! [shock] Hey, wait a minute.... ....I thought GB locked all the self-mutilation threads!

I wouldn't call that stupid, more like instinct. Either way, I am glad you are okay. I have been shocked by DC/110/220, none of them were fun. Sgtar15

SELF mutilation? doesn't that mean on purpose? trust me, if you felt(shit i'm having toruble typing) the way i do, you WOULD NEVER do this, actaully i feel REAL good now (muscle relaxants) and the only permanent damage is i'll lose a few fingrnails. funny thing, when it happend i heard a POP!! saw a flash and my arm went numb, i dove to the floorand started to pull my weapon!!!!!

Bwahahahah! Sounds like the time my step father used the tip of his finger to see if the cigarette lighter was hot.[BD] I hope you're ok though.

Ban electricity! ...for me and quietshoez[shock]

I am surprised the fuse did not blow... shorting the contacts with a key would be much more than a 20 amp load.... Either way, sucks to be you right now.... get better.

yeah, the doctor that examined me was an NRA/ILA member, and was genuinely concerned about my loss of shooting for a few weeks, he said, that realistically, i could shoot when i felt like it, but he had to "officially" dissuade me from anything like that for a few weeks.

Did you know that when you do that your left hand becomes a spot welder? Its true! You too can earn BIG bucks in the welding trades.

That's what I thought. That sucks, glad you'll be better in time for BRC. I would say I laughed, but that really was not funny. [;)]
