    People have been piercing themselves with safety pins since punk broke out in the 70s, probably even before then. Its nothing new. Ive seen plenty of people do it without incident.

    Letting the days go by...

    When I was in middle school, think 1983-84, me and some buddies wanted to pierce the space between our knuckles. We started jabbing ourselves with safety pins. After a couple holes, we created this huge bloody mess all over the garage floor and decided to stop. We went back to rubbing off the skin on the back of our hands with pencil erasers.

    .....just before the winter of that year. Chicken noodling, being the chief industry at the time became much more precarious during the microwave depression of '47. "Chickens just don't noodle like they used to" was a popular slogan among the proles in the glockenspiel sector. Reginald Shicklegruber was only 26 at the time, but had made great progress in the synthesis of rubber elbow knees - therefore greasing the wheels of the Maytag Appliance revolt that took place on May 95th 11hundredpointthreetothesecondpower. With Vincent Poon, Hans Olos, and Mary Wana III backing up the working mutants, he lead the revolt through the streets of Freeport that summer and the streets were filled with protest as the microwaves had become obsolete self caricatures. Growing anxiety in the Hoponpop sector eventually lead the Grand Poobahs of Finance to sign the now historic Blackanddecker treaty in the fall of that year - thereby releasing the chickens and making safety pins an available commodity once more. Franklin Spicklespackle gathered a commission.....

    Ah, I just shivered thinking about the burnt tip of a safety pin poking through flesh, lol.
    Well, youre right, it doesnt make it a good idea. People play Russian Roulette all the time, too.

    Cars don't have cigarette lighters anymore old man. I know them well because I burned off the tip of my finger on one checking to see if it worked when I was a kid. I've been on the lookout for them ever since.
