I have exactly zero sympathy for anyone dumb enough to play with the blades on any electrical device without unplugging it.

Now that the NYT's absurd hyperbole about assault weapons has run out, I see they are starting in on getting people in a hysteria about their kitchen appliances.

I was flossing my teeth with the string on my electric weed-whacker and damn if the thing didnt start spinning.... long story - short, I nearly lost one of my eyes. Im only posting this here because I think people should be aware that these things are dangerous and to point out what a giant freaking moron I am.

I still use my belt-sander to file down my finger nails... I mean, who doesnt?

GBB: SomeCallMeTim: I hope this person doesn't own any guns. He's the reason they put tags on blow dryers that tell you not to use them in the bath tub. What a moron.

No, he's the reason why microwaves have warnings about not putting pets in them.


Do they really have that warning? That's farking amazing! Why don't we just take all of the warning stickers off of every piece of kitchen equipment and let the morons go to town until common sense once again prevails?

Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes that reason is because you are incredibly stupid and make bad choices.

Immersion blender accidents are Nature's way of making you stop picking your nose.

fusillade762: I have exactly zero sympathy for anyone dumb enough to play with the blades on any electrical device without unplugging it.



Heh.....to expand on that...........

I have exactly zero sympathy for anyone dumb enough to read the NY Times so they will understand the dangers of playing with the blades on any electrical device without unplugging it.

Then again, I don't get that concerned about NY Times readers with finger injuries from immersion blenders as it will limit their ability to re-post more pathetic "stories" from the NY Times to various websites anyway.

People like this shouldn't be trusted around a hot stove, let alone anything with blades.

Wow, talk about rich, stupid people problems. Aside from NOT UNPLUGGING IT BEFORE CLEANING THE BLADES, what kind of idiot uses an immersion blender on cookie dough? And then gets paid to write about it.

The NYT will never run out of hyperbole about "assault weapons".

How do you hurt yourself with an immersion blender if you take the slightest amount of caution, like unplugging it when you are done?

My blender horror stories? The interface is horrible and its terribly confusing for a novice wishing to learn CG graphics on his own. But on the plus side it's free and Maya is $7000.

They need to add just a bit more to that title - immersion-blenders-can-be-a-danger-in-disguise-if-you're-an-idiot
