Ya, the m,ain reason I am takijng a break is because my parents are a bit concerned, I almost was trapped, so Today I went out and got 6 fire extinguishers for the garage and house. My hand is doing better, its ugly as sin but atleast it doesn't hurt alot, I appreciate all of you guys, and I hope top one day get this hybrid assembled and ready top be posted here, but I lost alot of my parts including all of my igition setup:(

ANd pcguy the bad part is that all of the tools that I ruined were less t han a month old

Well frankerede hope you recover well. My sis when she was like 2-3 years old she was playing and I was watching her... and lets just say I neglected my job and she tripped fell and her right hand went into a space heater. For the next 6 months she had trouble moving her fingers doctors nearly removed them.

Lets thing be a lesson to all. IF YOU are play, work, or what ever with fire or a fire source STAY AWAY FROM fuels. Frank was lucky most people would have been stuck unable to get out of that garage.

And Beleive me when I say he most likely will have trouble moving his hands for the next 2-3 months unless he is lucky and recovers fast.

Ooooh, that sounds like seriously bad luck. I've mauled myself pretty badly before (nasty cuts to hands, that sort of stuff), but this is somewhat beyond this.

Stuff like this is part of the reason I do construction work outside.

i feel very strongly for you, the worst run-in with fire ive had was when i burned my finger( still got an inch long scar) with a flaming plastic bag.

i find it interesting that the fire was big enough to suck the door closed making it hard to get out. i hope that no major property damage occured.


Recruit thats a pretty nice sig you've got there :wink:

EDIT: truely retarded typo *sigh*

Ya, the whole door thing was the scariest part, and the building is fine with only a small fire on the wall itself

Yeah, anything posted before the competition entry thread appears can't be entered in the competition.

Anyway, looks like you got over that accident pretty quickly, not even two weeks and you're back in again :P
