    Ouch!

    Technically it was my wrist but I figured since my wrist is very close to my arm that this would count.    Anyways, I will never forget getting burned because it was the worst burn I ever had.  I was frying fresh trout and the oil spit up and hit my wrist.  My...

    Stupid

    I burned my arm with a lighter for bizarre reasons that I understand less now than I did 3 and a half years ago. It was more like branding I guess. I held the flame for about a minute and then pressed the metal against my arm for the same amount of time. I was able to hide it...

    Just Wanted to See!

    This'll sound really daft, but is so true. I wanted to see if it hurt. And it did. Alot. I heard how people all complained about getting burnt so I wanted to see if they were right or not. They were. God, I'm an idiot :)

    It Was a Sad September Day When I...

      Was making coffee, just making coffee...who knew the horrors that would befall me as I stood there making coffee. I held my arm too close to the jug, and suddenly a searing pain and then... a red mark on my forearm, which would become a bumpy blister the next day.

    Yup

    I have burned my arm a few times, on pots and pans and candles and engines. The oddest time was when my mother asked me to come help her in the kitchen and just as I got near her she swung up and around with a huge pan just out of the oven with a fish in it lol and planted it...
