    Dec 15, 2008, 1:14 PM - I got in trouble for laughing at this.. #1

    So i was in the computer lab yesterday and after getting fustrated with my take home finals I browsed collegehumor.com and came across this gem. I was laughing so hard that i was disrupting the other people and was asked to step outside the lab till I got my laughter under control.

    Enjoy!

    That was funny! The question is, who hasn't stabbed themselves while modeling?!

    the worst i did was chopping some of my action figures up back in the day to make ones with different heads and stuff and i sliced right into the side of a finger down to the bone.

    i had a multiple layer skin flap all the way down. I still have the C shaped scar

    I did that exact same thing, a couple months ago. I was using the exacto and just wasnt paying enough attention and slipped. I am typically very careful but Heros was on TV, I must have losed a pint of blood.

    wow make my number 3. Using an xacto knife to cut open my new dremel attachments, slipped and cut a gash in my left index finger about a 1 1/2 in long and down to the bone in a C shape.

    I haven't sent myself to the hospital with Xacto related injuries, but I do tend to cut myself somehow it seems on every costume and rocket I every built. Thats why I always have masking tape and paper towels on hand

    I had to go to the ER after an X-acto incident. I was making the Indy Grail Diary and was cutting the pages using a ruler. While cutting the blade cut in the ruler and straight into my thumb. Had to have 4 stiches.

    I also cut my thumbnail with a rotary tool, glued fingers together, brun marks, scratches and what not.

    It just makes it more fun.

    Ok that is funny. I once cut myself very badly while cutting Jango armor...and talking to Braks. He warned me not to cut myself and I said I wouldn't... Needless to say, if I hadn't been talking to him when I cut myself, I probably would have passed out.

    I think we all have one or two costuming horror stories where we've mutalated ourselves one way or another .

    The only "bad" injury I've ever had with my exacto (I'll proboly cut a finger off or something now....) was a slip that went right into my left index finger, which produced a "finger fountain". It was awsome after I got past the fact I was going to bleed out from my finger.
