1. Soldering irons are hot.

2. I mean, really hot. Like, "burn paper" hot.

3. Solder doesn't stick to glass very well.

4. Glass gets really hot when you're trying to melt a bunch of solder all over it.

5. Solder is kinda cool, but I don't think it's going to replace wire-wrapping anytime soon.

6. At least I hope not.

7. Anyone got any bandaids and some burn cream?

8. Ow.

Ow. I don't miss soldering.

One time I was making a detonator for class (no, really, it was!) and was working on several layers of newspaper at the dining room table. I finished, picked up the bundles of paper... and found that the iron had managed to burn through, leaving scorch marks on my parents' solid wood light oak table.

I am grateful to be alive today.

That's when you do the rest of the table and call it "distressing".
