I was about 18 and I was bombing a freeway retaining wall on the I-78 in Tri-City near Vista, in So Cal. We had killed the wall earlier that night and came back to wreck it more for good measure. We had done like five fillys and tagged the shit out of the upper retainer wall. We went below to the retainer wall right next to the freeway (groung level) and did some throw-ups. That night we had probably spent 3 housr total including both missions. Our luck was running out quickly. We finished up the bombs on the lower retainer wall after being honked at and seen by a million people. We made our way up to the top where we had entered. We spent a little more time bombing the upper section before leaving...We returned to the spot where we came in. As I came around from the wall to hop the fence I saw 7 highway patrol cars lined up with all the cops out of their cars chilling and waiting for our stupid asses. I heard one of them say that's them "Get em'". Shit went down! We started to run to the bottom retainer wall where we had been bombing earlier and to our surprise there was a motor cycle cop patrolling the spot where we had been tagging. We decided to continue down to the freeway anyways. The cops up top were swarming and we had no where else to go accept right into the path of the motor cycle cop. So, as I was running and jumping down this 75 degree angle cliff I made a wrong move and ended up jumping into a drainage ditch off center at a weird angle...I broke my ankle in two places. Needless to say our asses were going to be hemmed up if we didn't keep going so I kept going and got to the freeway. We ran right in front of the Motorcycle pig and I dropped all my cans in the west bound lanes...We jumped the divider and got across the east bound lanes and then proceede to jump the fence into some bushes...Our plans were to take the frontage road to the Mall and get our homie to take us back to the car. Taht was parked near the scene...To our amazement the cops uptop never spotted us and how the Motorcycle Copper didn't see us I will never know? It was one of those nights you thank your lucky stars and are very happy for your freedom. We escaped the cops and a huge fine and jail time for the killings we did that night...I hobbled my crippled ass a few miles to the mall with the help of my good friend. We woke my homie up at 4 am and got him to drive us back to the crime scene where I then proceeded to drive my friend home with a broken ankle...the car was std. transmission and I had to use the clutch with my ankle. Shit hurt bad. We got him home...I got the car back into the drive way before my mom woke up (I borrowed he car like usual). I went to sleep for an hour then I told my moms that I broke it in my sleep. Sleep jumping??? Don't ask. It worked and now my ankles healed and I got a story to tell...so tell me yours.

My mission was to wreck shop on Washington just westward of northpark by the airport in S.D. It was COLE and me, my girlfriend at the time(one of the dopest chicks) decided to go with us. The target was a elementry school wall that faced towards the street, now this is on a hill so when your driving down the street you look up 150 feet on the side of the cliff and see the schools wall and some homes in the community. We got to our locale and got can ready, shaking quietly!!! We started our outlines and quick fills to set the pace. Looking at it we decided to go big and add charecters. We had already been there for about an hour and we were finishing up and my girl tells me she sees a dog. I think you know what kind of dog it was. "K9". I grabbed my backpack and the few cans that were left astray (never leave evidence). My homie ran to the 18 foot fence and scaled it like a cat running from dogs. My girlfriend hops it like its something she has beendoing for years. Well I dont get so luck and my ecko jacket with these cool little rubber cords gets snagged on a link, I do a nice windmill down to the groud. My beanie flew off when I hit the ground. I picked it up and started to run more when I jump the second fence and cut the shit out of my hand. My girlfriend leaves withouit us, me and my homie have a three mile walk in the middle of the night through shitty as hillcrest "San DIegos GAY COMMUNITY. Both of us with backpacks and paint on our fingers, me bleeding. We get to my friends house and the only good thing that hapened is a nice cold beer. Then my girlfriend comes over and nutures me back to health. The next morning we go scope our steez. COLE arrows CATS arrows and on top it says FITE THE SYST. Sun will know...

Hell yeah...I know! The pain has a purpose and I wouldn't take any of it back. Are you still bombing shit nowadays...In N.County? I'm sure it's still loked as hell...I wish I could go back to like 94 and stat over again...
It would be fun. Peace

Still loked, theres all the new stores in south o. The Walmarts, targets, etc. etc. The valley has shown the most promise, and of course the usual spots on the freeways. They destroyed that old storage place at the 76/5 connecter.

I knew THE dude that fell off the heaven here in Seattle. Dose®.. he was in my high school. It was in the papers and shit.. that kind of shit doesn't happen here as much as it might in Cali.. He was from L.A. and he claimed CBS, but we didn't really believe him. He didn't die.. somehow. He managed to get away (well, NOT get away.. he got caught) with a broken arm and a body full of bruises and gnarly gashes and shit. I don't know how that guy did it.. that's a long ass way to fall!
10-12-2001, 07:17 PM
i was doing a roller along the missisipi river. i think it was christmas eve. there were boats going up and down the river, but nothing special, but all of a sudden, one flashes a spotlight on me. i grab my bag and the ladder and run. since it's on the river front, it's rocky as hell. i guess my fott got caught and i fell smack on my face. luckily i didnt break anything, just had a big ass scrape along my face. and i didnt ghet caught, so i guess it turned out alright. shit is still runnin, but i've yet to go finish it, ha ha (this is like 2 years ago). other than that. of course cuts on my hands from fences.and other little stuff.
10-12-2001, 07:43 PM
I died once...
but Yoda reseurected me and said...

i was in this yard that we did not scope and it was mad fuckin active...but the giant grey fr8 had to be destroyed...so everyone just finishing up when...FLASHLIGHT...comin right down the line...we run like retards in and out of line that are fuckin rollin right underneath my feet...the bulls were all out that night...anyways while runnin i stubbed my hand on the side of a car...no big deal with the adrenaline flowin but when we were headin out i noticed that i split, busted my finger wide open...nasty...luckily it was my right hand
i'm a lefty
hey kiddies, always scope the spot first.
i was with someone who fractured their skull and broke their shoulderblade while painting...the only time i've called 911 and asked an ambulance to come to the site of my latest fill in ASAP

one night my boy and i decided to go paint these freights that were layed up a few blocks away from our house, i swear there had to be atleast 50 of those big gray fuckers all seemed to be brand new....anyways, this was like the chillest spot to paint freights in the city, so we went down there four or five days straight and bombed the hell out of em. so one night as usual we're down there bombin away, and a union pacific locomotive comes down the tracks slow as hell with all of its lights off...(when they go slow, you cant hear em)finally that fucker gets close and i see it, all of a sudden four or five rail workers jump off with flashlights yelling"do you see em" i took of into a bush...but on the other side of the bush was a 15 feet drop off...reminder: it was pitch black i fall down this thing bumping into trees finally i stop rolling down this hill...it took me 5 minutes to get back up that hill...i couldve died....when i got back all of the rail workers were gone and my boy says"where the fuck did you go"
peep the bushes before you jump into em...they could be occupied by a hobo...........:rolleyes:

I was painting with a friend on a 2nd story ledge...just finished my piece when we must have set off a silent alarm. An ADT security van showed up...the guy was yelling, "what are you doing?"
Our only choice was to get down and confront the dude...there was no other way out. We had to jump from a fire escape to some scaffolding about 4 feet away. My friend jumped and climbed down, and the security gaurd was scared and didn't do anything, so my friend started running...meanwhile I was hanging from the fire escape by my hands.
Somehow I jumped to the scaffolding, grabbed hold of a bar with my hands, but my feet continued to swing forward so that I was parallel to the ground...I slipped and landed flat on my back from 18 feet off the ground and I could barely walk.
I ended up limping away while the security gaurd watched, absolutely horrified by seeing me fall. I went to a hospital and ended up with a broken elbow and never got in any trouble for it.

Shot at, slapped in the head with a lead pipe, body cut all to shit, etc.
Not a bad shake for a guy who barely does illegals.

10-13-2001, 12:49 AM
once my finger got really cold from painting in january for 2 and a half hours....i had to turn the heat on full blast in my car, it took a good 3 minutes to nurse it back to health....
i always get scrapes on the bottom of my forearms from climbing shit. trees, concreet, fences etc... every morning i come out of my room after bombing, my roommates see all the scrapes on my arms and they know already : "paint last night?"
but no, no major injuries
10-13-2001, 03:21 AM

10-13-2001, 04:31 AM
man, I've gotten tiny cuts that have turned into golf ball sized infections and I've taken bad spills off roof tops that were gone by morning... but I did get hit by a train once, it sucked, not really graf related tho...
10-13-2001, 04:57 AM
if any of u have the mass appeal issue of queens, theres this story that kept me laughing for hours...it was JA or SET or jd, shit i cant remember but he was running on a rooftop, flew off that one and smashed right into another rooftop higher. He didnt know that there was a gap there and just went smack into this wall, like the next rooftop was missing.......get it and read it...its funny shit
this story has nothing to do with getting hurt but its also in the queens issue how NATO scared away a bunch of construction workers with 2'4 metal polls....that issue made me laugh

just some minor scars off of fences and from tripping onto rocks.
nice story sun, i think i know the spot.
10-13-2001, 03:18 PM
there are sometimes when i like yards that are active, i prefer ones that arent...i guess it just depends on the night. i hate when shit rolls out on me...unfinished business sucks. i dont recommend anyone hit a spot without checking it out first at LEAST once..layup or yard. especially a yard, serious shit can go down....whether they know youre there or not. intermodals and holly rollers are insanely quiet, and roll at mad high speeds (not normal in yards, but when in between two lines in close quarters, 15-25 seems mad fast) vertigo can be a problem in tight spaces like that. i was between a line of two intermodals, one sitting, one moving, and i was a little shook cause i was afraid i might stumble a little bit, and my bag or sweatshirt might get caught on the line and throw me. if youre gonna go to a spot, be careful, definitely check it out unless you go with someone who's been there before. be careful out there novagirl...

This is another offtopic story (kinda) but other then scrapes and bruises it's all I got.
Someone mentioned blisters/infections? Man.. I got a cut on my right middle finger skating and I went paintin one night and you know how paint always spatters on that finger right? I got all this paint on me and I didn't clean it up when I got home. Nor the next day. I'm lazy. So my finger swelled up SIDEWAYS like 2.5 times it's normal width. But the fucked up part was that the infection was only in the end of my finger. So my finger was small at the bottom and got all big at the top. I popped it and drained it several times over the next week and it got better. But the worse part was, it stretched my skin so long and thin, that when the pus was gone it left a LOT of dead skin. I had to cut that shit off with nail clippers. Some of it wouldn't go tho, so I had to leave it til it'd fall off more. My finger smelled like ROTTING FLESH (smells bad) for like 2 weeks. Yuck.

I've been lucky, other than a few cuts on the palm from fences and a torn shirt or two, I've had no injuries at all while writing. I'm the kind of person who will have to jump off a roof, land fine, and then break my ankle stepping up a curb. But, so far, so good. Knock on wood.
10-16-2001, 12:50 AM
i broke my wallet.
10-16-2001, 02:39 AM
fuck... it even hurts to think about this...
i was climbin this fence with barbed wire and there was this tree next to the fence....so to make a long story short, i was holding a branch of the tree to step over the barbed wire on the top of the fence and then the branch broke, so i fell from the top of the fence to the concrete... worst part was that i fell on the wrong side of the fence ...so i had to climb back over.... took the T to the hospitol and was out in no time with 3 broken bones in my wrist and a prescription for 50 Percaset and 50 Vicoden... fucked the shit up so bad i needed surgery... happened at the beggining of the summer, and im still wearin a cast as i write this...damn...
10-16-2001, 03:21 AM
1 outta 3 posts (including this one) on this topic were actually my story.. lame. This one isn't. Nor is it graffiti related! HA! But it does relate, sort of..
I had a friend in elementary school who used to steal a lot. He was running one day and tried to make a quick jump over a chainlink fence, one of the ones with the twisted tops? You know.. well, he slipped and inserted one of the twisties slightly into his finger. He tried to stop himself but he fell the rest of the way. The metal went clear thru his finger, then he fell off the fence entirely and sliced up and out of his finger. He had 2 slices of finger and muscle hanging off his bone. He was pretty ghetto. For a few days he didn't go to the hospital. He just came to school with band aids holding the 2 sections of flesh around his bone. He took em off to show us friends.. you could actually see all the muscl and tissue and tendons and there was a part where you could actually see the bone (where the muscle came off). That was probably the gnarliest thing I've ever seen.
Another friend fell while hopping over one of these fences. He land on his ass then fell off the fence. He did pretty much the same thing my old friend did only to his ass cheek. Luckily, it only sliced thru a few inches. He had muscle and fat squeezing out of his ass cheek. He had to get a lot of stitches.
The moral is : If you have to jump a fence, take yer time. It is probably worth it to slow down and risk getting caught over severly altering yer life (imagine if you fell on yer nuts or face!). And make sure you have good health insurance if you paint!

One time........... one of my homeboys and myself were painting this semi-trucktrailer that was highly, highly visible in the daytime. I'm talking one of those big fame spots! It was abandoned with flat tires in a somewhat muddy field. So we go and get the ladder that we had stashed in the bushes at the local layup and tote it to the car and drive it about 2 miles to the spot and get started. Big huge blockbuster letters on this thing just killed it. So we're using yellow roll paint for fill and some black Walmart "Grade A" Colorplace for outline, right?? Are you following?? Up and down the ladder we go...... move the ladder left move the ladder right..... we finally finish this damned thing and step back to look at it. Now there is no way you could see this thing at night and it's fucking perfect in the daytime so we're all stoked like " Yeah, I'm the man.... "No, you the man....." Typical jackass type of thing to do before you even leave the spot.... We spot one more thing to fix before we leave so I climb up the ladder and fix it and on the way down the fucking piece of shit wooden ladder breaks... I didn't get hurt yet!!!
I say "Fuck this piece of shit!! I'm dumping this over in the blackberry bushes where all that other wood is!" because someone had broken down a shed and there was this pile of lumber and siding all stacked up over there. I grab one end of the ladder and he grabs the other.... we go to give it the old heave ho when I swing my end and give it all I've got I step on a rusty nail that goes right through my shoe into the middle of my fucking foot! "Oh fuck" I yelp out like a little bitch and so we hobble car to the car and I had to drive home with a bloody hole in my foot and another story to tell. That spot ran for like 5 months with plenty of attention that was paid to it...... Kind of worth it in the end...
Beware of rusty lumber!!!!

ive been lucky. i think mayeb a rolled ankle that wasnt that bad and maybe sum scrapes a splinter or 2 thank god and knock on wood.
10-16-2001, 04:44 AM
okay so about a year ago me and like 5 others were killing this yard thats super chill'd , we were there for like 2-3 hours and were in about the 6th line of like 13 , anyhow i had just finished my burner and my buddys werent done yet so i thought id go explore to take some flix and kill time so i crossed a few lines and saw headlights coming up the side road , i thought it was just a yard worker and no big deal but when i got clear sight of the road it was two squad cars that were now not far away from me . so i rush back to our line and yell from about ten trains away , " yo cops lets go " most of them just ignored me and told me to fuk off and stop joking around but a few were cautious and putting there backpacks on , anyway i yelled agin that i wasnt fukking joking and that they can kiss my ass because im leaving . at this they finally got i was serious and started to flee the fuk outta there , we crossed over the rest of the lines and were headin towards the bushes when we see a new line pulling in too close for us to chance it ----so at this point were shitting because were caught in betwwen a huge hunk of steel and cops which we could hear looking for us , so we wait and decide to hop on the new line pulling in bc it was going outta there , so like 4 of us hop in between one car and it starts fukking shrinkin on us so we jump out to not get mushed and then realize we'd gone past the bushes and cant get out that way at this point we split up and me and jes go the opposite way and decide to get back on the train , only now its going faster and i didnt realize this so i jumb and grab onto the ladder at the side but its going to fast and my arm nearly gets ripped outta the socket ,now my muscles are all pulled and sore and i cant pull myself up bc the trains goin too fast so im hangin on shittin my pants bc my legs are swinging under the train right by the huge spinning wheels and are gonna get cut off if i fall so im struugling to hang on when i figure ill just swing my legs out and let go and hope i dont die , so i try to do that but am seriously struggling bc now im tired and weak but i manage to swing out my legs and let go and i fall like 5 feet away from the train onto the hard rocks and fracture my shoulder , but also i land/roll into the next tracks and smash my head on the rail cutting it open and giving me a concussion , but my friend runs over and yell " are you dead" i get up and im like no but my arms are destroyed and i feel like im gonna pass out .... neddless to say we stumble to the bus stop and get to my place where i tell my mom i fell down some stairs and she takes me to the hospital.
im all healed up now but havent hopped trains since then.....
10-16-2001, 09:40 AM

10-16-2001, 04:04 PM
one time i was paint a tanker and i thought it would be a good idea to stand on the rail that goes along the side of the car. boy was i wrong. so i get on the rail walk out to where im painting and go to finish my fill. i get the fill finished and go to rock my outline when i slip on some oil on the side rail and fall to my doom. damn did that hurt. i hit my head on the track and got knocked the fuck out and my friend had to carry my dead ass back to the car.

So I got entirely too drunk and some stupid fool wouldn't let me and my homies in his party so me and my homie broke some bottles in the street and somehow we started brawling. We ended up rolling around in the broken glass and he came out with a bloody face and I came out with just some bruises, then we left to go hit a rooftop and the only way to get up it was to climb a tree that was on the other side of one of those fences made of big metal spikes. So my 2 homies start walking mad far to go around the fence and I was like fuk that and I hopped it, climbed the tree and started painting the rooftop. My homies met me up there shortly after. We finished our fills and my homies climbed down while I took some flix. I got down the tree and my homies started to walk around again. I went to climb the fence and when I got on top of it I went to step over and I did I didn't notice a spike go up the leg of my pants. I went to jump and my pants caught and I did a belly flop on the cement. I got the wind knocked out of me and busted the hell out of my wrist and got some fat bruises on my leg from falling on some pens and shit in my pocket. My homie eventually got over there and lifted me up and brought me to the car. We still went and did fills on I5 and Aurora even though I couldn't move my wrist. I woke up the next afternoon hung over and beat the fuk up.

11-05-2001, 02:40 AM
a few nights a go me and my boy were paintin fr8s at a some what chill lay-up that you get to through a pretty rough walk through the woods after about 20 minutes of painting we hear noise. on one side of the tracks theres woods and on the other theres houses the noise was coming from the side with the houses so we stop and creep around a hopper to see whats up i see a cop car parked but the cops in side were just sitting there, right as i pull my head back from the hopper the cop makes a noise with his siren we both took off in too the woods i was in front of my friend and all of a sudden i hear him say oh shit and he stopped i went back to get him ( being the good friend i am) he was holding his face... while running through the woods he ripped his face up on some vines with the huge stickers on them he got back to his house and there was blood running all down his face.. he was pretty messed up

i dont live in any hot ass places so i really dont got good stories....the only time i injured myself was when me and two of my friends scaled a school building to rock some shit on the roof.....we were stupid as fuck, and after doing fills decided to smoke a few bowls...we were high as fuck and started making hella noise up on the roof...and a fuckin teacher and a security gaurd see us...we run like fuck across the roof to this chain link fence that was going down the side....i threw my backpack down the building...(broke my camera and dented my pilot FUCK) and jumped from the building and grabbed the fence in mid air...LIKE A FUCKIN HOWLER MONKEY!!!!!!!!!!! fucked my hands up...then jumped off the fence and fucked my ankles up....but what pissed me off the most was that i fucked my nice camera up....damn...shit happens

so i was painting this roofie..
i had to put up a table so that i could climb up on the roof.
anyways, i was standing there, almost finished with my fill,when this car comes fast as fuck up the road."fuck, the cops!" so i ran over to where i had put up the table,and jumped down on it..but off course i missd it, and landed flat on the ground, resulting in a broken toe. :crazy:
by the way it wasnt the cops..just some fool scaring me or whatever..

another time we were runnin and we had to climb this 10 foot fence at the top of this grassy hill...my boy makes it over clean and keeps runnin...I make it to the top and get a charlie horse and fall over, end up rollin down the other side and layin in the ditch till it went away...

a quick note: i think this is the only post in which ive read every single reply/story, to me thats some good shit
ive been lucky. shit i see yall like "i got hit by trains" an all "im kicking the 3rd rail" and other dudes head butting regular rails...
all i can say is ummm, once i did this wall next to this cafe, some dude on the cafe's roof (why the fuck he was there i dunno) spotted me, i never even knew it like a dumbass, some guy comes running outta his house. i catch ghost on him. go back like 7 minutes later to finish the fill. the guy from the house chases me in his car, throws some shit at me, catchs up to me three goddamn times. i run threw like 8 backyards full throttle an shit, with SIX fucking cop cars driving around my neck of the streets, and welp chicken wire fences at night suck. i hit three of em, and didnt see any one of them either, full speed. it sucked. i lost my shoe twice, fucked my wrist up and literally ate dirt and rocks. i got away hid in some dudes garden, for a minute to catch my breath they stroll by and see me, i catch ghost again and this time i hide in a tree for awhile. they didnt look there and i very carefully made my way back to my boys house. needless to say, it wasnt as cool as all yalls story. but im still suprised to this day i got away.
i live in a small city with crooked cops, and 125 of em on the squad give or take a few at any givin time. thats a lot for a city thats like a total of like 30 square miles with 66+ thousand people crammed into that shit. when they get dispathed, well those motherfuckers dispatch, like a bunch of starving rabid dogs. makes it that much more fun.... i guess... *knock on wood*

A few days ago i was paintin in some abandoned building, which is a real chill spot. When i got done we went out some new way through a window knocked out. As i was going out a car came by so i jumped back behind a colum and to my suprise there was no floor there. So i fell 18 feet and landed on my side. I went to the hospital for three hours and didn't even break a bone. The only real damage i did was i that i still can't rember any of this day.

im sorry if this totally recks alll your injuries and chasings and ish but i was walking out of these tunnels and fell on the train tracks and got a brused knee

:D about 4 months ago i was climbing down a fence trying to get to a ledge along some road. i was drunk and slipped. fell about 20 ft., landed on my feet on the sidewalk. broke my left ankel and my right foot. was in a whell chair for 6 weeks. still have trouble walking to this day.
another time i was hitting a billboard and tripped on my untied shoe lace. fell off the billboard but didn't get hurt at all, just winded. probably fell a good 17 ft.
another time i was walking back to my car after some winter time clean train action. cop comes up on me and my boy and we decide to bolt. i had never been in this area before. we split up and i run directly into a swamp. theres snow and slushy water everywhere and its dark as fuck. i get deep in the swamp, the cop won't go into it. i'm hung up on a little bit of land, frozen, barely able to move. more cops come and i'm surrounded. i try to move and they spot me and i crawl out to them. i had lacerations all over my face from the thorn bushes in the swamp. i could have frozen to death if i didn't surrender to the cops. at the police station they showed me off like a prize. my face was covered with blood, i was drunk and puked. one of the worst nights of my life. lyeing in a cold jail cell in my wet, cold clothes.
i also fell on a third rail once but only touched the top, nothing happened. oh yeah, been sliced up by barbed wire a number of times as well. godd damn, i love bombing. :dazed:
11-09-2001, 09:55 PM
Hmmm..All ive had happen is ive gotten bit by a tick from going into a spot, Ive gotten cut up by barb wire trying to run through a hole in a fence being chased(it was dark and i didnt realize that they put barbwire that week around the hole and by the time i was there it was too late),Ive had a broken toe,and ive almost died from exhaustion from running! Not all that bad.

slipped off a ledge on a building with ice on it on to pavement, that one felt a little better than the time i jumped off a one story roof and on to a 4 inch nail that went through my foot. cool huh, thats the kind of stuff you wish would happen more often when you are trying to be quite and do something illegal.

this ain't as bad as catching my 2 front teeth on an iron fence or gettin' thrown off a train, but it still fuckt me up.
11pm. bored as fuck. have a few beers. then hit up an elem. skool. rock maybe 10 outlines over 1 half of the walls on the skool. so rockin' shit w/ buddies, when some fuckin' security guards sneak up on us and are like wtf r u doin'!? so they kick my buddy in the back, and we bolt. i jump over some wood kinda barriers (u know the kind found in playgrounds) and hit the ground running. too bad it's a hill (shit was dark man) and covered in gravel. not to mention im still feeling the beer, and take a tumble. summersaulting for a few rolls. after escaping the guards, i find out a ripped a nice hole in my knee. thru my fuckin' new pants. the hole spewin' blood all over. i sleep over at my friends and i didn't clean it. in the morning, pickin' gravel outta it inbetween hydrogen peroxide. green shit oozing outta there for days. 14 months later, got a nice purple scar. alcohol and graff don't mix.

not too much has happened to me... frostbitten hand from a winter highway spot.
a kid in my town was painting a highway spot and was seen by the cops... the cops turned around, went the wrong way on the highway and hit him with the car and broke his leg. i'd say that's up there.
11-11-2001, 03:48 AM
yea i fell straight on my head hopping a ten foot f ence once .. .we hit freights during the day.
for all you kiddies yelling about paint on your fingers- wear gloves, plus it eliminates fingerprints in extremely rare cases that a faggit ass dick cop has nothing else to do but fingerprint spray cans LOL.
