Is it possible to be more stupid? Well is it?

As a young apprentice engineer, I was taught to always hit downwards, with the lead lump hammers we used, to tighten a machine vice.... good advice indeed.... which of course I ignored at 17 years old. These lead hammers weighed about 6lbs, I found out why the advice was so good when I struck upwards to loosen the vice, glanced off the vice handle and bashed myself in the mouth. Luckily for me, once the stars had subsided, I hadn't damaged myself other than my pride.

The 2nd daft thing about it was I still remember my thought process at the time

  1. Bash.... what the @#*% happened?
  2. Did anyone see me?????
