Oh Ye of little faith Spike, if there is one thing I have learned in my life it's that weird s** t happens. I have a nephew only 3 years of age and despite his mothers constant watch, the boy has been to the hospital more times than anyone can remember. Stitches, burns, skin graphs the boy doesn't have the survival instincts God gave cabbage. He runs around like a blind gopher in a field of land mines. The sad part about this is that he doesn't learn from his pain he just builds up a tolerance to it. I fear that one of these days soon he's just going to stroll right off a cliff and make this list. That's why I check it, to make sure he's not on it. Eric
