30 years ago I used to use my teeth to bite through solder rather than
cutting it, but of course lead wasn't that dangerous in the '70s ;-).

I also used to like the smell of the dust from brake linings after
blowing the drums out with an air line, got my hands covered in benzene,
toluene and such things in the lab and various other things which
weren't particularly dangerous then...
