Thankfully I seem to get off mainly injury-free (to myself at least…I have a name for breaking VERY expensive equipment on a semi-regular basis..in fact I almost see it as a part time job). I think my worst ones are probably stabbing myself in the fingers with needles or dripping chemicals on myself that make me itch. I do use radioactivity on a weekly basis though so I could be giving myself damage that I can’t even see…and thats a scary thought.
Hello bsykes and kclark!! Thankfully I’ve never had an incidence of injury due to an experiment (yay!). But I am fairly accident prone. I’m really a bit of a clutz. This is one of the many reasons I am better off doing theoretical than experimental science for my career 😉
