You need a pretty big blob to do permanent damage, but even a small one can
be painful.

Its something that happens sometimes - mine are usually on difficult solder
joints when salvaging parts, sometimes a solder joint spits as you heat it.

When harvesting components with a pencil blowtorch; the spitting can be
hotter - but I hold the board looking at it edgewise, the spitting goes
sideways and nowhere near my face.
