    I once heard a guy who phoned into a radio station after suffering some rather nasty affects after playing his Scalextric naked. One of the cars flew off and electrocuted his manhood, which made it spring into life for about 5 hours so he couldn't even wee. He was in angony but kept insisting he was too embarrassed to go the Dr's, so preferred to seek advice from a phone-in radio show. Medical types kept calling in to advise him to get himself to hospital. So there's a valuable lesson: don't play Scalextric naked.
