    /who needs a meat thermometer for enchiladas?
  • Who the fark let's a kid get a hold of this? I have a nephew that lives with me, almost 5, and he's never gotten a hold of scissors, knives or any other sharp object. Keep the shiat out of drawers they can reach, and if you're working with it, move it to the back of the counter. It's not hard.
  • +1 Subby, well played.
  • I think a full recovery would be rare.

    You're right. Safety first. Too much at steak.

    One day that kid is going to lacerate his colon with toilet tissue.

  • Who wants to join me on the bus? I call dibs on aisle seat as I get up to pee every five minutes or so.
  • So your kid gets impaled and you assume all's cool?

    A 5-year-old can handle scissors in general.

    A 1.5 year old can't handle shiat.

    Well done.

    Your nephew sounds slow and unadventurous.

    He's obviously a responsible parent and has good insurance, what's to worry about?

    A modest proposal.

    Why just assume your kid is cool when you could simply read the thermometer and know for sure?

    It doesn't matter how vigilant you are - kids will almost always find a way to get ahold of sh*t. My buddy and I were cooking dinner in prep for a game recently, and his annoying but apparently smart crotchfruit managed to get ahold of a butter knife that I'd left in the sink.

    The sink. You know, taller than he even without factoring the reaching-in part. And then...

    I caught this little dork nanoseconds before he was about to stick it in an electrical socket. I'd always heard of kids doing this, but thought of it more as an urban legend than something kids actually do. I mean of all the objects in the house to fark with, this little bastard went straight for the wall outlet. I picked him up and yelled at him before handing him over to his dad, who had been, erm, occupied in the bathroom at the time.

    This is among the reasons I don't dig children. Don't hate them, but I really, really don't want one of those creatures crawling around my place for longer than an afternoon. And even then, look what almost happened.

    /still have no idea how he got the knife out of the sink...kind of impressed actually
  • I wonder how many health care workers looked at the gauge on the way out of morbid curiosity?

    /I want to believe there was at least one sick joke done in private or under someone's breath.
  • Getting impaled with a meat thermometer is really bad. It's a good thing this kid went to the doctor and was able to have it removed safely. Just a little difference could have been the difference between life and death.
  • Surgeon Dr. Koji Ebersole said it was a one-in-a-million case.

    But magicians have calculated that million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.

    I had these in place on all the electrical outlets, plus the child proof latches on all the drawers and cupboards. My son was a curious lad when he was a toddler and since I was also caring for my bedridden grandma too, it was difficult to keep a close eye on him sometimes.

    Yeah they can. Just let them shove a hand down their diaper and you'll see.

    Doesn't that sound like the title of one of Frank Zappa's albums?
