Paul, next time you try it, make sure your finger is clean and liberally apply flux. It appears that you didn't get any of the solder to fuse to your finger this time. If that doesn't work, maybe you should use your chemical process and tin your finger first?

Did you hear the sizzling sound or were you too busy saying bad words that you didn't want your son to hear?

We need to make sure we write this up into the assembly procedure.

"Step 666: Solder finger and enjoy the chicken-y smell."

More seriously... Thanks for taking yet another one for the team. Wear that burn mark like a badge of honor.

Perhaps you can put wet paint on your finger and press your burned fingerprint on the case with the the paint. It could be like Picasso signing his artwork.
