I've got to say that 13% on the power tool/beer question seems kind of low for my area. :DSwab your ears? Survey says you're not alone

YONKERS, N.Y. - The people at Consumer Reports magazine are at it again, telling us we're doing what we shouldn't.
For example, nearly 3 of every 4 Americans put cotton swabs inside their ears, risking a perforated eardrum, according to the magazine's telephone survey of 1,000 adults. Nearly 4 in 10 often eat raw cookie dough, which could carry salmonella.
Only half the respondents have a carbon monoxide detector at home and 61 percent don't have a rubber mat in the shower. The Yonkers, N.Y.-based magazine said Monday that 13 percent admitted sometimes drinking beer while using power tools.
Share you hair-raising risky habits with the Lounge. I never wear a bike helmet, I sometimes yank veggies out of the dirt and just eat them, and I routinely use 75 watt bulbs in sockets rated for 60 watts.
Yeah, I live on the edge.
