Have you burned yourself with your hair straightener?

So straighteners/flat irons can get as hot as, I think, 425 degrees. Last night I was straightening my hair and somehow caught my left ear and slightly burned it. Other than my hands I have also burned the right side of my face at the top of my cheek between my eye and ear, more than once even.

What part of your body have you burned while straightening your hair?

 Not with a straightener, but my curling iron. It was falling off the counter and i grabbed it and got 3rd degree burns on my hand.  OUCH!

My face, my forehead, my hands, my ear, my neck, my scalp, I'm going to stop here and just sum up by saying just about any body part that gets close to it has gotten burned at some point.
