Sure yah can.

I'll preface this by saying , generally accidents are not funny.heh.

-------

In the 27 year life of this company , we have never been called back to a job.We are the best at what we do , and we are very serious professionals.Our company lives by the words 'Integrity' and 'quality worksmanship and 'work ethic'.....Because of this , accidents on our jobsites are nearly non-existant.

All that being said ;

I have bounced a 50 lb section of steel pipe offa my skull.(weld failure , that welder is no longer with the company ((I'm the welder now))..

That took 7 stitches.

My boss Darin , hit the very tip of his middle finger with a 3 lb hammer , on a steel plate on top of cement.And I mean the very tip....just the last 1/4 inch.....The impact blew the back of his fingernail right outta the skin ! gruesome.took like 8 months to grow back.

heh

-----------------------

As far as the whole RMA for the striker goes ;

I havn't done anything.

I need to goto my comp store kinda off hours , so im not pissing off the staff with a joke during busy hours , and I havn't been able to do that yet.

It's on the list.

haha man, by hilarious accidents I definitely meant accidents where no one gets hurt; injuries are no fun...I was thinking more along the lines of ninja-rigging someone's house with hydraulics and tricking the inhabitants into thinking there is an earthquake :P

The closest thing to that I have is dropping a structure about an inch.The whole thing.At once.That wakes people up.heheh....Takes a lotta prep tho cause it has to be setup to do that.....don't want any damage.

I hope you get a friend to secretly film it too. I'd love to see the reaction on the person's face.
