Yesterday, while building some of the larger and more complex models in my "to do" pile and doing all the requisite prepatatory work like drilling and pinning (fitting pins of metal into holes you've drilled to give the glued area more support) I dropped a glob of superglue on my trouser leg. Thinking nothing of it I shrugged and went on about my business. It was only twenty minutes later when I stood up that I realised the glue had soaked in and reached my leg - bonding the leghairs to my trousers. A fraction of a second later when I finished standing I understood some of the pain of waxing.

Y'know, I think I'll pass, I only have so much sympathy and its automatically excluded for people who attempt to re-enact Jackass stunts or those who wax their crotches voluntarially :)

It was more of a manly whimper and watery eyes.

Thing is, I still have loads of models to drill, pin, prime and glue so I have many more opportunities to
a) Slice my hand open with a craft knife (unlikely since I've learned my lesson there - the hard way of course)
b) Drill into my own body
c) superglue a metal pin to my teeth
d) point the paint spraycan towards myself instead of at the models
e) Spill the entire tub of superglue on my pants and repeat the accident on a larger scale.
