That reminds me of a story from my dad.
He once knew a doctor that was fitting a guy for a new glass eye after his got broken. He asked the guy how his glass eye got broken and the guy said he was driving cut nails and one flew up into his eye. Then he asked him how he lost his real eye. You guessed it. Driving cut nails...
Hopefully he learned his lesson before he lost his other eye.
