The bad news is, rubber gloves are NOT an adequate defense against a wayward flap disk on a 4.5 inch grinder.

The good news is, the wound is self-cauterizing...

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

^^^Ayuh.

Some of the more creative language I've come up with is a direct result of rotating abrasive materials as well.

Nope, but BTDT.

Local feller what can't even SPELL maintenance pulled in with one wheel on his double-axle cargo trailer flopping around like a wounded duck.

Both bearings disintegrated, shrapnel tore the spindle all up. I was...uh..."polishing"...yeah, that's it, polishing...the spindle so I could get the remnants of the inner race off.

I managed to cobble it back together enough that he can run it until payday when he can afford a new axle.
