    So many.

    My first was cooking Alpha ghetti on the burner while home alone, in a Tupperware container.

    My 5 year old brother gave me a haircut with a pair of scissors when I was 3.

    I was so proud of my new "look" I went to show my Mother whose scream I still hear to this day.

    Well, other than circus clowns torturing my genitals with Goody combs, there were various incidents with bottle rockets, a machete, a bicycle chain, a bb gun, sling shot and a home made pipe bomb. Life on the farm was never dull.

    Oooh! When I was growing up we had a Hutterite kid a few miles away from our farm get sucked through a grain auger and lost a leg. I thought it kinda odd because the Hutterites in the area were very bright and safety conscious. Now the kid who's parent's everyone swore were first cousins that was another story. He tried to make a burning barrel out of an empty 55 gallon drum of either fertilizer or something else that he should have known not to cut into with a blow torch. The story goes that they found his head 100 yards away.

    I must have been 6 or 7 years old.
    We had two gas ovens, upper and lower.
    I was standing on a chair, with the gas already on, trying and trying to get a match lit, so that I could light the oven.
    When, the match finally lit, it literally blew me off the chair.
    I was lucky to get off with only a couple of singed eye brows.

    When I was 9 years old, my mother left us.
