That scares me just reading about it Keith. That dude is going to be sore but it could have been much worse. Prayer lifted for a speedy recovery.

Shew! What a lucky man!
I was helping a boy in high school that his car had died. So being the well prepared redneck I parked my truck in front of his car, hooked up my jumper cables. Told him to hook his side and give it a minute. He tried to crank, and nothing, tried again, nothing, I thought this is a brand new battery, what the heck.
Walked towards his car to look at it, and before I could his battery exploded. Sent that battery acid everywhere, luckily didnt get on me, but its got me extra careful now


Yeah, that one really scares me because you could end up blinded. You were just lucky it didn't hit your eyes. My cousin had some splash in his eyes as a kid when his Dad was charging a battery. He had to wear an eye patch for a while but recovered fully. I almost blew a battery up a few years ago doing a stupid trick. I was taking the battery cables loose using a long double box end wrench 1/2 & 9/16 combo. The nut was rounded off so when I pulled on the wrench, it slipped on the nut and slammed down onto the opposite post of the battery. Well, let me tell you that wrench got HOT darned fast. I jumped back and was going to just let it go and take care of myself. My Father grabbed the wrench and tore it off getting his hand burned in the process. Ever since then I never loosen a battery cable with a wrench long enough to span across the posts AND I put my other hand down on top of the post so nothing can touch it. You can get hurt so fast working on cars and most all of it can be prevented if you just slow down and think "What can go wrong here".

I ended up troubleshooting a battery today for a woman at the church office. I've always thought about that battery explosion risk, but have never seen it happen.

I'll see about a pic, but other than the back of my hand being swollen, it doesn't look too bad. Figured it would be black and purple today. Nope. Plenty tender though.

Turns out the lack of flesh in the back of the hand mean's not a lot of bruising or bleeding. Not that I needed or wanted to know that, especially not...



...wait for it...

You will be surprised at how much bruising you may end up with. Don't freak out if the palm of your hand gets super sore. I am glad it wasn't any worse.
