And it's funny how those little passages just happen to turn around in the housing and come straight at your face sometimes... A little bit in the eyes won't do any permanent damage, but wow, does it sting!
I guess safety gl***** never occured to ya?

I guess this board quit supporting safety...uhhh "eye wear."
