So, I was wondering, how bad have you gotten burned before, and how often do you get burned? (Physically speaking) It came across my mind while I burned my hand in the toaster this morning, which is only the second time I've ever gotten burned at all.

I burnt my hand pretty badly once when I was a kid. It blistered up really badly where I got burnt and was so painful for so long. Its all good now that so yay for that!

I've scolded my tongue a couple of times from rushing with coffee. Aside from that, only thing that comes to mind is a moment when I was around 5 and touched an iron while it was plug in. Genius move on my part.

I also burned part of the carpet away in my old house, but that's a different story.

I once burned my arm while I spilled a cup of tea on it that was very hot. The burn is long healed at this point and wasnt that bad, but the spot has a mark so I rememer where it is. Nothing too major though.

A couple of weeks ago, I was cooking lasagna for dinner...and being so clumsy myself, I opened the aluminum covering and the vapor from the lasagna quickly reached my hand and it felt like I've dipped my hand in a bowl of boiling hot water. It hurt like oh mah gawd. I didn't had an ice pack at the time, so I used a frozen ground beef pack to cool the burn. >_>

I work at a pizza place, so I've burned myself multiple times there. It's usually the oven, but one of my first burns there was from a heat lamp. The steamer we have is also super hot, I could probably hurt myself with that too.

Sometimes I burn myself at home, too, on the stove. There's a healing scar on my middle finger of my right hand from where I hit a rack in the oven. I'm clumsy so it wasn't a surprise.

When I was living in the US, I burned my finger when I touched the inside of a toaster oven. The skin just below the fingernail peeled off and bled and I had to use a band-aid for a few weeks.

I've burnt myself a few times throughout my life for sure. The one I remember the most clearly was grabbing my desk lamp and burning the whole of my hand due to the accumulate heat of the light/bulb. Standing in front of my kitchen sink running icy cold water on it for about half an hour was quite annoying, but it soothed the pain nonetheless! :D

I remember getting sunburned a lot. It really hurts and I often have to run cold water over myself, which is not fun given I have fair skin.

Also, I remember burning myself with a light bulb when I was younger.

In highschool doing metalwork. I just welded 2 pieces of metal together and then tried to pick it up with my hands*. Pretty much melted my skin. Looks more like a deep cut than a burn until it blistered over.

*lol. the reason I picked it up was to take it over to the water sink to cool it down. Why did it need cooling down if I thought it was OK to grab? Guess I wasn't thinking haha

Not often that it happens to me, but last bonfire night I got hit by a firework when one went wrong. My dad kept going on that it could of hit his grandson(which it didn't). It hit me and ruined my jacket.

I get burnt pretty often cause I can be pretty clumsy at times though it's usually just small burns that heal after several hours or a day or two. Just recently I was helping my dad cook french fries and some of the oil splashed on my hand by accident.
My worst causes of sunburn happened when I was around 14 or 15. My family went the pool one day and I thought I'd lay out in the sun a bit and tan. I completely forgot sunscreen and got blisters all over my back and arms for weeks , some pretty big too. Hurt like heck to sleep on.

Only once I remember getting really burned. Back when I was around 11 years old. I warmed up a Rice-Crispy treat in the microwave, a little too long, when I was about to bite it a chunk fell off, and one portion landed on my right lower part of my lip. Grandma said I got a blister

When I was seven years old, I decided to test whether lightbulbs were hot. Turns out, lightbulbs are hot

When I was like 4 or 5, I grabbed a hot muffler on a tractor when we were working in the garden.

I don't hold on long.

Yeh, I have been burnt many times but nothing too serious; just things from cigarette ash (back in the day) to picking up hot pants or oven burns.

Hm the only time I remember being burned really badly was 5 years ago or so when I burnt my hand badly on a toaster oven and got a huge blister. Other times I get burned are from picking up/eating hot food, hot glue gun burns, oven burns etc.

My mother burned me with a cigarette once. Not like in a child abuse kind of way. It was an accident, but it was on the back of my hand where people could see it so I'm sure people wondered.

Oh! and once on the Fourth of July I was playing with a sparkler and a spark landed on my head and burned part of my scalp and hair. That one hurt a lot. Burning hair smells really bad, too.

One of the only two times I can remember being burnt was when this exact same situation happened to me (also on the back of my hand).

The other time was actually earlier this year, when I was boiling water on the stove, and it started over flowing and spat up at my arm. I turned the element off right away and ran my arm under cold water for a good 20 minutes or so. Luckily it didn't leave any permanent marks, but it did hurt pretty bad for nearly a week.

I've scalded my tongue countless times, but the main burn was when I was using hot oil for cooking and spilled it all over my hands - that hurt like hell ;; It didn't leave much of a scar which was incredibly lucky, some of my fingers are a little odd as a result though haha.

Oh, I've burned myself loads of times over the years. Nothing serious, mind you. Just things like accidentally touching hot kitchenware, pouring water from a kettle onto my hand instead of in the mug of tea. Things like that. You'd think that one time would be enough to teach me a lesson but nononononono. There probably hasn't been a year of my life where I haven't accidentally burnt myself! :D

Worse I've burned myself is when hot oil flung out of a pan when I dropped something in it too quickly. Few burn spots on the my right side because I was wearing a sports bra and I think I still have a mark or two (or three?) from the incident.

But other than they just very minor burns from scorching my tongue on something hot or touching something hot like an idiot.

I've burned myself lots of time. LOL Most of the time, it comes when I'm tryin' to cook something. Sometimes when I'm trying to move a pot full of hot water, some of it splashes on my arms. Or trying to get something outta the oven; toaster oven, since it small, I sometimes bump up against those hot rail thing. Ouch. LOL

But my worst came from a light bulb. I was sitting on my bed writing...stuff, when my lamp feel over and landed on my arm...It even left a little black mark on my arm...But that happen awhile ago.

I wasn't aware of lightbulb physics when I was seven and decided to test it on a bulb that had been lit for twelve hours straight. Little did I know that electricity produced heat and heat hurts just a little bit. I also was unaware that sticking my finger on a bare piece of ice for hours on end was a counter-productive remedy. The burn hurt for a few days after the fact.
