Neighbour across the street some years back was occasionally interesting.
One day he came home in a shiny new, blinged out four wheel drive. Two weeks later he came home, this time the 4X4 looked like it had had a serious altercation with something harder that it was.
So the neighbour decided he was going to fix it himself.
The weekend saw N out in the driveway, under the 4X4, welding merrily away. In shorty shorts, no shirt, no hand, face or eye protection. Welding above his head, while lying on his back. I don't know much about welding, but I do know that this is Not a Good Idea TM.
Pretty soon the inevitable happened - a spark or something hit him in the face. I'm not sure if it got into his eye or was just close to it. Next thing N is jumping around, grabbing at his face and cussing a blue streak that could be heard around the whole estate. He rushed inside, and didn't emerge for quite a while.
Our hero eventually graduated to Superhero. When he did finally emerge from the house, he had a wet tea towel pressed against his face. He then went back to welding. On his back, no protection, welding above his head.............. still holding the tea towel to his face.
