You're in a safety awareness video! 🚑 ⚡

Which ways would you have been seriously injured today, had you been the protagonist of a safety video?

:zap: I poked a crumpet into the toaster with a knife

:zap: When I returned from the dead I leaned right over my chai pot on the stove, far far too close to the flame

I left the butter open while cats were skulking about.

Luckily I caught her before she stuck her head in there, but there’s every chance she could’ve contaminated the butter with toxoplasmosis and I would’ve eaten it none the wiser and fucking died.

Cycled across damp tram tracks

Driving fast while drumming on the steering wheel

Slouched at my desk.

(The health and safety video will be filmed over a few decades)


Walked two bouncy lead-pulling dogs on wet grass wearing shoes with completely worn through soles.

Walked downstairs whilst looking at my phone (several times)

Stood on tiptoes on the edge of my bed to adjust the ceiling lights.

ate an out of date sandwich

Poured some concentrated sulfuric acid into a beaker

Stubbornly ignored and swiped away my phone’s notifications to stop looking at it while walking down the street.


I truly admire these stories of survival
