Typing away one handed for the moment and won't be answering much PM'* or anything else for a bit. Just as I can manage. I got a boo-boo.

Ouch, V. Looks like some sort of acid burn. Cleaning chemicals or something like that maybe?

Hand soaked in tranny fluid then ignited by a flash fire. The eerie resulting sound is best describes as cold meat thrown in a deep fryer. Second Degree burns on the top of all the fingers, Third degree burn took off the skin from side of palm and thumb. Freakiest thing ever to happen to me. Tapping away gingerly with the help of oxycodone.

I had about 8 feet of junk piled up over the last months and decided it was time to burn it. Mixed up some gas and old tranny fluid (to help it burn longer). Pour it all over the pile and soaked a stick, lit stick and went to toss it in fire. Warmer out then I thought, a slight wind moved the vapor trail towards me. Sounded like a napalm explosion that engulfed me. Didn't even singe my hair or clothes but set the tranny fluid on my hand to crackling. Cleaning the hand up before those pics hurt as bad as the burn.
