**Table Saw Safety Tip No. 2**
(No. 1 of course being don't touch the blade)

The other day, I was using the table saw, and I didn't have the rip-fence quite square, and the piece became wedged between the blade and the fence. So, being a total dumb-ass, I stepped behind the saw (instead of walking around) to turn it off. As I did this, the piece of wood dislodged, and traveling at a speed somewhere near that of light struck me in the gut, right below the sternum.

Thank God for my abs of steel...
