    Power tool hazard warning

    WARNING

    It is possible for the clear plastic guide that sets the depth of cut on the Norelco hair trimmer to pop-off during use, at which time it starts taking a full-depth cut of your eyebrow.

    The chance of this happening the day before the 4th of July are clearly much greater than any other day of the year.

    Furthermore, there is no "brake" feature that would stop the shears in the event that they are removing your entire eyebrow.

    It is said that it takes the brain about 8ms to process what is happening and react; I would estimate it takes approximately 7ms to shave one's eyebrow off completely.

    Finally, the people in your life, the ones you may have previously referred to as your "loved ones," will find all of this madly entertaining.

    DAMHIK.

    Always have someone else trim your eyebrows.

    Sorry for your incident and I won't laugh. I already ran out of laughs at a coworker who recently did the same thing.

    Pictures needed.

    I had mine done by a professional yesterday.
    Please help support the Creek.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    There will be no pictures. Just imagine the stereotypical village idiot with one eyebrow shaved off.

    Be careful with that nose hair trimmer, too.
    Could be some chunky saw dust mixture in there that can clog things up and it'll yank instead of cut.

    Shave the other one off and draw them in. You could arch them in such a way that looks menacing so no one will bother you about it.

    The caterpillars are out now, find one of those bushy ones and glue it on. Never happened!

    Oh ya, you may want to euthanize it first, live it may freak people out.

    Especially if you shave your head to go with the brows.

    I've nearly done the same thing Phil. Caught it quicker, but still looked bad for a bit. Sorry man.

    The right to bear eyebrow trimmers only applies to a militia.
    Cry "Havoc," and let slip the dogs of bench.
