...well, if you're the kind of person who sticks forks into sockets, that is.

Don't stick metal implements into sockets
Don't think you can jump 20ft out of a tree batman style and think you'll not break anything
Don't try and skateboard down your stairs.

Some of the things I remember from my childhood

What utterly stupid things did you do to harm youself as a child and what words of advice would you give your children/nieces/nephews now?

Don't wire up xmas lights to one of those orange flashing builder's lamps, then to the mains - lamps 12v + xmas lights 220v = blue flash!

Don't sharpen toy arrows made from wood then aim at brother's head, then allow him to move head suddenly - head + sharp arrow = hole!

I remember I threw crayons into the fire when my Mother abandoned me for a few mins!

Anyway when she got home I had a red arse for a few hours.

So don't throw crayons into the fire unless they are Crayola cus they change the colour and it's pretty amaze!

It was in the UK, oh and did you know there is still a law that says a man can avoid going to church on a sunday if he wants to practice his archery skills on the village green in england?!

When I was a child in the 1980s where were loads of "safety" adverts - especially telling children not to climb on electricity pylons to retreive their football/frisbee or run after their rabbit Fluffy as he negotiates a 6 lane motorway.

There was a water safety ad in the early 1980s where toddler drowns in a paddling pool and an aul fella falls into a river, sitting too close to it.

Thgere was also a series of ads presented by some boot ugly wench about food safety/salmonella and using flameproof materials in the home. I must see if any of these are on Youtube.

And for anyone over the age of 30, we all remember this:

If you are visiting someone in hospital, or are a patient yourself, and on a drip, if you see an air bubble slowly making its way through your arm, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU ALLOW THAT AIR BUBBLE ENTER YOUR BLOODSTREAM. Understood?

Why? An instant, lethal, heart attack.

I don't know how I came to know that, but I witnessed this in action when my grandmother was hooked up to a drip, and there was a massive air bubble in it. I didn't know if what I heard was an urban myth or not, but I decided to take no chances. I told the nurse about it, and she did something to the drip and eliminated the bubble. If it was ok, she would have said it was ok, and continued on.

Air bubbles apparently interfere with the workings of the heart. Maybe a doctor or medical professional on Gaire can shed some light on this.

I've heard that too, the easiest way to kill someone is by using an empty syringe, and inject it into them. No idea where I heard it, but it does make sense if you ever see a doctor about to inject someone they always flick the syringe, or tap it to make sure there is no air in it.
