    I shredded off the tip of my right index finger shreddin' cheese earlier this evening.

    Probably the worst, but I don't cook much.

    Did the same, with a potato peeler. Took the tip right off. I was bleeding like crazy and used a feminine pad to stop the bleeding so I could go on cooking.

    I melted most of the skin off my hand cooking fries at mcdonalds.

    at home I chopped the top of my finger off and had to have it sewn back on.

    one time i was frying some eggs and i wasn't wearing a shirt. it was a total white trash move. an when i flipped the egg in the pan (chef style...just flick the pan and the eggs flip), they splashed hot butter on my stomach an belly button an i had this circle of burns around my belly button that hurt like crazy.

    Sure, you got any meth left man?
    Same thing, fucker wouldn't stop bleeding! I used some crappy little bandage my wife went and got me, looked down a few seconds later and my finger was all bloody.

    Now it's wrapped in duct tape = zero blood.

    I was draining some spaghetti into a collander, hot water splashed up and managed to get me right on my stomach area. Ended uo with a second degree burn, there's a scar the size of a half dollar coin now.

    Not cooking, not pertinent to thread topic.
    Ouch! To both of those! Did you get any sweet disability pay while off work from McDonalds?

    You probably could have worked that into like 1 grand a month for life if you had a kick ass lawyer.

    Pads are the way to go. They are super absorbant and have a plastic coating on one side and adhesive tape built in. I keep a box handy whenever I'm doing anything dangerous. They are way better than band aids.
