The worst offenders I've seen are APC type props. They often have quite a
nasty  ridge on the edges due to the moulding process. You can understand
why they are called blades if you're really unlucky :(
Then again I got a nasty injury off a Cox BlackWidow! Luckily the engine
stopped soon after bitting me.... As soon as it occured I was aware that I
had a running throttleless engine with a full 3 minute tank in one hand
while the otherwas not looking pretty and dripping claret.
A trick I saw for finding TDC involves a drinking straw, some blue tack and
some spit. Put a load of bluetack round the bottom of the straw, put some
spit down the straw (waters not viscous enough) then wack the straw against
the glow plug hole and turn. When the top of the spit stops going up thats
TDC. Obviously make sure you rotate the engine the right way- not a
recommended engine lubrication liquid!

ps If you do get taken to hospital with a hand injury remember the
obligatory joke....
Q: Can I play the piano after this??
A: Yes
Q: Good, because I couldn't before! Haha (laughs uncontrollably)
When I was working in A+E I think I heard that joke at least three times a
day! Oh yeh, and when asked how much the pain was out of ten, everyone said
eleven.  If you want to see a doctor trying to act amused try one of the
above! It's quicker to smile than explain!! And when the main department was
closed and we had to see all of the adults in childrens A+E *everyone* said
some "joke" about being too old to be a child. It's nice that people try to
be jolly/humorous when they've been taken into Casualty but when you see 200
patients in a day and they all greet you with basically the same joke.....
:)

I'm almost inclined to believe that you can train athletes with
a back-firing Harley. Remember Harvey Smith's practice of
putting hedgehog skins on jump rails to "encourage" his
horses to go that little bit higher ? Or the school in Florida
that drops a small (but large enough to take a toe off) alligator
into the pool behind student swimmers ?

You're joking about the alligator, right ? What about insurance ?  Those
students would become millionaires the moment the gator touches water, no
matter how far behind them, and no matter who puts, drops, kicks, or lets
it in.

Did you hear that at the Sydney olympics when they where swimming across the
harbour in the Triathalon, there were scuba divers alongside them with
harpoons to fend off any sharks. Supposidly true... Sure would make me swim
fast! Then again, I'm not sure I'd go in the water in the first place....

Filandia to remain as Port Melbourne captain

Peter Filandia will retain the Port Melbourne captaincy when he returns from a 10-match suspension for biting an opponent's scrotum.

Filandia this week pleaded guilty to biting the scrotum of Springvale's Chad Davis in last weekend's VFL match.
Filandia addressed his players last night and club president Peter Saultry said the former Sydney and Essendon AFL player would remain as captain and assistant coach of the Swans' VFL affiliate.
"Yes, he will (because of) the quality of the person Peter Filandia is," Saultry told 3AK when asked about captaincy retention. </Quote>

No way ? Yes, way. But I got a couple of details wrong. I have
seen the story on CNN (can't find a reference to it) and also on
Ripley's

Episode 202 - it was Australia and a crocodile, not Florida
and an alligator. Would still bloody hurt but
