Wow! Amazing for so many wrong reasons. I need one of those for sure. The perfect gift for someone I know..! :)

Maybe add some small drivers inside the frame? Like on each end of a "water bottle" maybe? (Might as well go all the way).

Ok, I finally the plug and ordered one of these.

Not as a gift for someone who deserves it, but to hang it somewhere I see when I wake up. Bound to make my days start off with a smile. :) Or simply add to my collection of things gone orribly wrong. (Mostly DIY stuff  :D )

Ah, that is a way too friendly error.

My DIY mess ups typically have a proper good go at trying to kill or maim me. Examples includes setting myself on fire, dropping liquid steel in my own lap, electrocuting my nose, having machinery throw heavy metal objects at me and the classic driving over your own foot with a forklift. Pretty sure I've also surpressed the really traumatic ones.

If it makes you feel any better I set myself on fire twice. Both times with burning alcohol.  :ahhh

 :D

Ps: We need a  :ahhh on fire.  :D

It actually wasn't much  :ahhh for me, but an icon with fire added would be great for sure :)

I was just doing my thing when I noticed this burning smell. I turned around and had a long look around in the hall, but couldn't see anything wrong. Still that burning smell kept getting stronger and stronger, and smoke started to limit the vision. And wasn't my stomach weirdly hot all of a sudden? So I looked down, and sure enough, I was ablaze. Managed to strip down real quick, and I've only had work clothes made of cotton, wool or leather ever since.

I haven't set myself on fire with it, but the self igniting powers of acetone has also given me some scares. Luckily steel tables don't burn.

I think the main problem is that once something is very much routine it is easy to get too relaxed and complacent. Absent mindedness is a potential killer for sure. Then again, nothing like a little fire to get you back on your tiptoes. :)

The second time, the front half of me, except for my face, and a good part of the room was on fire. I managed to extinguish all the fire. Luckily alcohol does not bur well or hot. But I was still burned on thighs, torso and arms. It hurt quite a lot. Though there is not much scarring left, I learnd to always use a proper stove and not some improvised pile of smurf, made from a can and a bit of rolled cloth for a wick...

So what was the first time? Was that the other side maybe?

The same side but a lot less severe burns. It happened when I was a bit younger, in times when I liked fire a bit to much. Not like an arsonist  but I was fascinated by it. I had a small alcohol burner as a part of my chemical experiments kit and alcohol to go in it. And once I was trying how well the alcohol burns by itself and in the process I became the burner as it were.  ::)

I finally got it! Oh happy days!

I'm happy to report it performs exactly as expected. There is hardly a thing it can do. It is surprisingly sturdy though, so it will be able to not do for a very long time.

I just can't help it. I like it for all the wrong reasons. :D

I thought it would be a contender for most happenstance design, but sadly didn't quit make it. Proud second place though :)

Awesome!  :like:

The saddle part alone would be a nice little piece to put on your keys.
Or cut the wheels off, and use it like that.
