    Luckily it means I don't sit still long enough for one of the trains to catch me.
    Try adjusting the focus on a camera built into a box into a railway track, while holding a monitor with an a 5m extension cord and the target to focus on. Only to have a 2.5km long train come round the corner 100m away.

    (I know it's not programming, but it still bl**dy hurt!).
    I've done that! Ah! I missed the plastic handle when catching it! Its a new definition of pain...

    one time I got so mad I squeezed the mouse so hard it crushed. It just happened to be a old mouse with the mouse ball in it, and the ball went flying and hit my right eye. Ouch! Okay, I just made that up, but I can just imagine it happening. That would be hilarous. But I almost crushed my new optical mouse when I was making collision detection and it kept screwing up. Instead of cussing out the monitor, or hitting it / kicking the box, I like to squeeze the mouse really hard until it makes a cracking noise.

    Electric shocks ARE VERY VERY FUN! I got this manual switch for my lamp because I broke it a few years ago, and I took it apart one day for the heck of it. There are two screws in there that make the circuit complete and incomplete, depending on if you want it on or off, and I touched both screws.

    Frenchfry, I assume from your name you are from the States, so that would have been around 110V. Wouldn't suggest you try it on 240V (although it's current that kills - the voltage being higher makes the current higher).

    EHT off a CRT can make your day *ahem* interesting.

    One major injury was when I wrote a program, compiled it and got 128 errors. I looked at my code trying to find the error for about 2 hours (about 2000 lines of code). And finally! I left out a semicolon at the end of my class declaration.

    A thread BUMPED me...

    Anyways - while programming a opto brick, I reached behind it without looking to plug it in... The plug had a few exposed wires... Zap.
