I have caught a falling soldering iron several itmes, the wonrg way.  It's
certainly a habbit you learn to kick pretty quickly, although back at home,
burns on the hand were far prefereable to my parents seeing burn marks on
the carpet!

This sounds a bit like a thread on a car maintenance group on usenet I
subscribe to:  What tools are in your toolbox?  Popular answers are:

"Hammers, both metric and imperial"
"Special torque limiting screwdrivers, where the handle turns but the shaft
"The wrong type of screwdriver (always loads of crosspoints if you want a
flat bladed driver!)"
"Semi-working multimeter, keeps you guessing"
"ratchetless ratchet, and I don't mean one of those cool modern ones"
