ditto to what tom said  ;D, oh, i mean the i am sorry part :'(.  it could be worse, you could have been smoking, though i am not sure if the new refrigerants will convert to phosgene. but hey, on the plus side you could drop it in the lake with a big chain attached and use it for a permanent boat mooring ::)

Heck, I am one of the guys here that says not to do that, unless really careful. Well, apparently even careful is not good enough. I wan't a 64th past the skin when it ripped.
