    I should have my Niece sign up so she can win the prize, she did something really stupid a couple of weeks ago. She has a pit bull and it was being attacked by a neighbors pit bull in her front yard. Dumb as she is, she tried to get them apart. When she reached down to grab her dog, she slipped and her hand went into her pits mouth. She is now minus the tip of her ring finger. The enclosed picture is not for the squeamish! All others enjoy

However to rule out any due stupidity, the potential entrant should always post with photos for the enjoyment of the other contestants and viewers.

    Well I wasn't asking to be considered..

    How about shearing the top half of my right index finger off working on a project for my parents at their house in San Diego (I have all my woodworking tools there), but I couldn't let them know what had happened since my mom would freak out. So I just put a big band aid on and finished the project. It took about a year, but it grew back almost totally.

    I just kind of keep popping up everywhere. As long as the injuries remain at altitude, I can handle it.

    get this

    One of my favorite sayings for fellow coworkers and other selectively chosen

    So your (insert age here) Huh? How did you ever get to be that age???

    Im a pretty smart guy. (at least I think so)
    I speak a couple of languages, Have an avid interest in electricity, I weld of course, fabricate, design, run CNC machinery&My sign shop, I love chemistry and geology. And amoung my other talents, I play guitar and Im an avid firebug (pyromaniac for you connoiseurs) So, I see my "Stupidity" this way. If I didnt do those things I would have never taken a risk and that means I would never have learned anything. Cause and effect. Action - reactions.

    As long as I dont lose any bodyparts or get maimed (badly) Its all good - more or less. Mostly ive learned never to do that again but there are other lessons that are profound... hehehe... When running down the halls in an attempt to get to class on time, DO NOT smack the se xy girls a$$ on your way by or you may get distracted and end up going through the door in an inappropriate fashion....

    Monte, I finally got my table... I still have all my fingers and no holes where they dont belong!!


    So, uh, does anyone wanna give me a job? Im real good. sometimes Im even gooder than that!

    I worked for about a month for a sculptor that made large fabricated steel sculptures (incidentally he didn't actually do any of the fab'ing himself). So I was doing a quick re-grind on something without gloves. Unbeknownst to me, one of the other guys had doubled up the sanding pads. So I had turned off the grinder and set it down and while it was slowing down, my knuckle brushed against the edge of of sanding pad and sawed it strait down to the bone. Sucked it was my first day on the job.

    I can tell you without even referring to the rulebook that it does not count. However, I'm sure I'm not alone when I ask that you share your photos in the event it may have potential for a serious "oooh-ahhhh that's gotta hurt".

    I'm not sure that it completly lacks stupidity and in my opinion should be studied further to perhaps "rule-in" any stupidity that FusionKing my be rightfully entitled to. Using tools that may cause an injury while working alone isn't always the brightest activity nor is going to the bar prior to getting treatment. I would try to be as fair and open minded about the proper proportions of stupidity to issue in each particular event. Remember that egos are riding on this and to strip someone of their stupidity without due cause is just not Christian.

    OH YEA NAIL GUNS!!!....they count too huh?

    Well I spent some time with a buddy doing some carpentering several years back in the early nineties. We were building a rather long and wide deck on the front of a lake house. My friend/boss went to the lumberyard around 11 am and left me to finish nailing all the pickets on the perimeter because we were almost done.
    This deck was fairly high to the point that it was faster to lean over and nail them from the top rather than from a ladder. All I had to do was lay them out and hold them up there and hit them with the NAIL GUN. I was almost finished when the gun bounced and nailed my thumb to one of the main handrail boards (2x6)!!!! It was so unreal it took me a bit for it to soak in all the way. It looked sorta unreal...like there was my hand wrapped over and around the deck rail nailed to a board with a #8 ring shank
    Well I realized that I was stuck there so like a [email protected]$$ I sheepishly began to call for help. Then after awhile I tried yelling for help to no avail. This was a place where houses were pretty close together but given the time of day nobody was even close I guess. I was bent over and I remember felling like a wolf caught in a trap and having to gnaw off my foot.
    The nail bar was all the way at the beginning of the deck. So... after realizing my buddy could just take forever because he loved the lumberyard I proceeded to completely kick the deck railing to pieces Jackie Chan style.
    After obliterating all my previous craftsmanship I carried the fairly large chunk of railing down to the end of the deck and sorta moved my thumb with the nail as I pried it out.
    Then I drove myself outa there and caught up with my friend at the bar nail stuck thru my thumb and all. well needless to say I was the center of attention. We discussed getting whiskeyed-up and yanking it thru after cutting the head off but nobody seemed to be up to the task (pu$$ies)

    So we went to the hospital and I had to tell this dumb story several times over while they stared at this facinating thumb with a nail thru it. They went thru my record and recounted other memorable accounts with them also.
    They put me in a room in the emergency ward and then started taking all the time in the world. Well they then decided to take some of my blood (???)
    My buddy was sitting there watching from a table he was sitting on with his feet swinging in the air and began thinking..."that must be painful" and when he saw blood he was out like a light!! He fell flat on his face on the concrete and started into some kind of weird convulsions. He chipped a tooth or two and cut up the inside of his mouth. The emergency people swarmed on him like stink on crap to the point I was almost jealous but at the time I was on enuff pain killers that it was like another chapter of a all too real story.
    They took till after midnite to pull that stinking nail out just so they could charge my insurance for a day BTW
    My boss/friend sorta acted like I was incompetent with a nailgun after that untill one day after I quit him he shot himself in the knee and the thigh just barely missing his little nutsack he got rid of it after that
    I kept the x-ray for years but seemed to have lost it now. It was a one in a million shot right thru the center of of the joint and there is only a small scar today.
