kazikian: So your kid gets impaled and you assume all's cool?


Why just assume your kid is cool when you could simply read the thermometer and know for sure?

hbk72777: Who the fark let's a kid get a hold of this? I have a nephew that lives with me, almost 5, and he's never gotten a hold of scissors, knives or any other sharp object. Keep the shiat out of drawers they can reach, and if you're working with it, move it to the back of the counter. It's not hard.


You're right. Safety first. Too much at steak.

AbbeySomeone: Your nephew sounds slow and unadventurous.


It doesn't matter how vigilant you are - kids will almost always find a way to get ahold of sh*t. My buddy and I were cooking dinner in prep for a game recently, and his annoying but apparently smart crotchfruit managed to get ahold of a butter knife that I'd left in the sink.

The sink. You know, taller than he even without factoring the reaching-in part. And then...

I caught this little dork nanoseconds before he was about to stick it in an electrical socket. I'd always heard of kids doing this, but thought of it more as an urban legend than something kids actually do. I mean of all the objects in the house to fark with, this little bastard went straight for the wall outlet. I picked him up and yelled at him before handing him over to his dad, who had been, erm, occupied in the bathroom at the time.

This is among the reasons I don't dig children. Don't hate them, but I really, really don't want one of those creatures crawling around my place for longer than an afternoon. And even then, look what almost happened.

/still have no idea how he got the knife out of the sink...kind of impressed actually

I think a full recovery would be rare.
