Reason to take up modeling....
Posted by goldhammer on Sunday, April 22, 2018 1:52 PM

Just read a blurb on Yahoo about a 20 year old who was bitten in the head by a bear, three years ago got bit by a rattler, and now fell off his boogie board in Hawaii, got bit by a shark.

The young man needs to take up an indoor hobby so he can make it to an older, wiser man.

O i don't know. Given the luck he seems to have, he would slice an arm off with a scalpel blade.

Seem's to me, He need's to "Avoid" the great outdoor's .... or at least stay away from animal's that have teeth ! ( goldfish seem's like a safe bet.)

Model's may be OK, ........

Just remove all the dangerous stuff from the bench..... like X-acto blade's, drill bit's, thinner, any paint's, ...  he might "accidentally" swallow the plastic so.... no kit part's......

Heck, just give him the box, and call it a day.

Oopps .... I forgot about "paper cut's " .......

How about a "Pet Rock" ????

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

LOL! I couldn't help but think of this from How to Train Your Dragon:

Gobber The Belch, "And with one twist, he took my hand and swallowed it whole! And I saw the look on his face: I was delicious!

One of the comments on it was that animal magnetism isn't alway a good thing.

With his luck I could also see the potential of a display shelf tipping over on him, chopping him into 4 or 5 equal slices Tongue Tied

I think he should consider a safer hobby... like Mr. Potato Head, growing Chia pets, or finger painting.

But only if he use's none toxic, prefreably edibal, paint.
