LOL, Roger, Bill D, LTS, Troll!

Well, my brother once brushed his teeth with "Ting" (an athlete's foot preparation) by mistake.

Another lesson learned from my then teen-age brother: Do not stick your finger into the face of an open-mouthed box turtle, pointing and saying, "Oh, look! He's smiling at me!"

And, from sad experience, (yes, Kat) I can advise all of you to wash your hands thoroughly after applying Ben-Gay to sore muscles, especially if you're gonna rub your eyes -- or any other sensitive areas on yourself or your partner.

Seamus, don't fry ANYTHING in the nude -- not even in a bikini!

Never bathe a reluctant cat unless you are wearing goalie gear.

Lessons from my childhood years: -Do not attempt to find out whether an iron is on by running your thumb down the surface of the iron. -Do not slide down a snow-covered terrace in your Sunday clothes if you own a dog. -Never put an unknown cocoon in an open jar on top your refrigerator for the larvae to hatch. (We ended up with a houseful of miniature praying mantises.)

Re fish: If you need to separate a fish from other fish overnight, do not place it in a teacup. Fish jump.

Re cars: Never check your oil while the motor is running.

And, if you are a teen-age boy lighting a buddy's farts, do not stand behind him when you strike the match.

When desperate for a "sit down" visit to Mr Toilet, but holding on gamely because also imperative to get all festival camping gear off of car before wife goes to work - do NOT lift leg to climb over garden gate.

I can relate to a number of these - in particular remove contact lenses BEFORE chopping chillies!

A good trick to pull on team members who always turn up late is to anoint their jockstrap with a small amount of Deep Heat (or similar) - they tend not to notice until they start to warm up unless you overdo it. The results are particularly funny in a rowing boat!

I also was a terror as a child - the worst was the mixture of red phosphorus, magnesium powder and potassium chlorate - I lost a lot of skin to that one and was very thankful that I wore glasses. Another time we made nitrogen tri-iodide and sprinkled a little behind the Chemistry master's desk - he walked in to a 21 gun salute from his feet.

In a lab I was once in, a professor was introducing a new graduate student to an apparatus. Pointing at a diffusion pump (a device that has boiling oil in it), he said, "Don't ever touch that -- it's hot as hell." "You mean *that*?" asked the student, and prodded it with his forefinger. He lost the first joint.

Thanks! "Never bathe a reluctant cat unless you are wearing goalie gear." has been added to my sigblock "Fortune Cookie" file!

Silliest thing I ever did was propose to a girl two days after meeting her! Didn't turn out too bad though, we've been married >18 years!

Sounds like you can empathize with the cat bath thing, WD.

Re your "silly thing" tale, it's nice to know that sometimes insanity actually pays off! Congrats on your 18 years.
