I mentioned earlier today that I had managed to burn the knuckles on my left hand on my soldering iron. Thankfully the burn is not hurting – not even the low level pain that I was expecting for many more hours. I think the very limited swelling has gone down, and the redness only extends about a mm from the extent of the burn itself. These are really good. Right now it looks like some type of birth mark. And it is not sore to touch which is even better.

On another subject, according to News.Com.Au, a Canadian grandmother has surprised members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in British Columbia who are operating a gun amnesty. The old lady dropped a missile launcher into her local police station. She and her husband reportedly found it when they were renevating their house in 1973 and were afraid to hand it in. Ouch.
