    Haha, so here’s one:

    When I was 8 or 9, there was a gas station with repair shop across the street from us.

    They used to weld a lot there. I was always told not to look inside the flame/arc. Which I didn’t.

    So one day, When they were not Welding, I walked up to them and asked how it worked. They explained me that it all works through power, creating a short circuit between plus and minus.

    I mean how much do you want to go in depth with that with a nine-year-old.

    That time I had already worked with remote control cars and I know about power and shit

    But I had also observed, that the welder was plugged into the wall outlet which I knew I had way more power than my batteries in the car

    So, I figured I could also do that at home. Got me a cable with a plug attached, stripped the wires , plugged it in and held the blank wire ends together

    That was about a 5 inch blue spark, I flew backwards, breaker flipped and my mom came running down into the basement. I was laying on the floor kind of realizing that that was really bad and I somewhat dodged a bullet.

    My mom asked : what just happened? My response was: I just tried to weld

    The End
    ( luckily not )

    Mind you, we didn’t have guns over there, so that was as close as I came to killing myself that age
