An idea of teg1203 - If you have had an accident (fishkeeping or not) which was a stupid thing for you to of done then post it here so far:

I dropped a lighting unit in the water once and then picked it out. Don't remember much else for the next two hours but woke up a few feet away with a very sore elbow and a lump on me noggin'. Perhaps we should start a stupid DIY accident thread!
bugs said:Reminds me of a stupid CO2 incident I had...
I decided to ditch having CO2 for several reasons, including never being totally happy about having pressurised gas around. Anywaaaaay... having disconnected it all I decided to empty out the remnants from the disposable bottle I'd been using. Attached the reg and just left it open in the garden to slowly leak away... took about half an hour in total, after which I grabbed the bottle to detach the regulator etc...

Nothing ever goes right for me :/
soooo i fired the FE without the reg on just to see what would happen. BAD IDEA!!
It came flying out of my hand, hit my leg (bruised leg now) and finaly hit the wall!!
So if your a "i wonder what would happen if i pressed this" kinda person, like me! DONT DO WHAT I JUST DONE!
Ive no idea what im gonna do now, because it leaks without the rubber in it. Any suggestions
