This Gillian. She is the first host of The Headband of Shame and she lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.
Here The Headband (and Gillian) are enjoying the World’s Fair Park and a tower which Gillian describes as looking like “a huge microphone”.
Here’s Gillian’s “claim to shame” that qualifies her to wear the Headband of Shame.
I am a scientist and have been in and out of labs for years while doing my bachelors and masters and phd…..
Anyway I ended up in the ER last Friday evening after burning my hand on a bunsen burner.
They are super hot y’all!!
I thought it was going to fall over and grabbed it and then realised it was the most idiotic thing I’d ever done!
And to make matters worse, I am the a total safety nerd in the lab, always keeping an eye on everyone making sure they have the right clothes and gear on and I am the one that ends up in the ER!
So what have we learned? That bunsen burners are hot and human skin is not flame retardant.
