Not Again!!!

Note to self: Do not flame fingers with the Bunsen burner while flaming flasks.

Just when my fingers recovered from the methanol/dry ice burns...

Nothing serious, but ouch!

What gives? Normally I am not an accident prone person in the lab. Normally I am cautious and give the laboratory my full attention when it comes to safety.

Somehow, I am just all "butterfingers" in the lab lately.

I guess I am just feeling somewhat distracted.

Who knew science could be so dangerous? :)

Yes, well... just last week, I set my hand on fire after I'd used ethanol to superficially clean the surface of apple fruit. Yep, a little Bunsen burner action + fingers covered in 95% etOH. Oh, yes, the brilliance!

I wasn't injured, but I was indeed startled.

p.s. are you at OSU? that's where I went to grad school.. in science, no less.
