Holy fuck my sister's in-laws.  Her husband's sister: "Not sure why you're bothering leaving now, he'll be dead in maybe 5 years."

Wow.  :aaa:

Cut my thumb open when washing a food processor blade. Nerve damage is certain at this point, as I can't feel up to an inch past the cut. Had to super-glue the fucker shut!

Took 25 minutes to get it to stop bleeding the first time. Then it took over 2 hours the second time (I must have accidentally ripped it open a bit more.). During which time I bled all the way through a hand-towel AND a rag. I had to put so much pressure on it, it gave me a blood blister around the cut.

I can't believe I ever doubted the super-glue method, though. I'm never using bandaids for incision wounds again.

In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature.

The Spanish police are not fucking around when it comes to the Barcelona cell.  Out of a suspected 12 members there are:

3 on the run
6 shot dead
2 blown up (self-inflicted)
1 in the ICU (also self-inflicted)

Never tried that but I don't know if I've ever had a cut that would work.  I gouged a finger once with a hedge trimmer, had flap that i compressed shut and it healed ok.  It feels pretty odd now, there's feeling in that spot,  but it's wrong.

Yeah, it's the best method for things like that. Super-glue seems to significantly reduce scarring (Not that that really matters to me, as I've never cared about scarring.), and is perfect for situations in which you have to hold two pieces of skin together to keep a wound from bleeding. I recommend using the most viscous super glue you can find, as the nail glue I used is not so viscous, and ended up spreading further than intended and insta-gluing my uncut thumb to one flap of the wound, which is the reason why it took so long to get to stop bleeding the second time around. I had to immediately rip my other thumb off the flap before it bonded completely to the skin flap. It was almost completely bonded though, so it extended the cut another half inch (basically into the start of my thumb nail) when I ripped it back.

I completely get what you mean by "there's feeling, but it's wrong." It's essentially like an incomplete nerve signal. Only pieces of the information make it back, and it feels off, in an indescribable way. Makes me think of TV interference, or a radio fading in and out between two radio stations.

Booo.


Also I dunno what kind of super glue you used, but I hope it was medical grade. The stuff for objects is toxic, I believe.

I had suspected the same thing when the idea was proposed to me.

Cyanoacrylate is all it said on the bottle, but I had looked up the other types (n-butyl and 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate, for example), and as far as I know, it would just cause burning sensations due to its curing process being exothermic in some circumstances for certain types. I think the main toxicological factors have more to do with the fumes. Either way, I think it should be fine. A little bit of glue toxicity (Which, none of it would be deadly by any stretch, in the case of cyanoacrylate) is way better of a situation than having to pay a thousand dollars for a couple stitches.

What? Summary and key phrases from speech needed, sounds like cocaine fueled corporate bullshit at its finest. I mean sure if pillaging and plundering is your business model but I'm pretty sure you don't work at a bank.

Out of the blue I noticed one Zak Smith, a DIY/OSR D&D dude, has blocked me on twitter, which has me baffled, much like when I found out that fucking Jessica Price from Paizo had me blocked on twitter. I'm torn between assuming it's because of a subtweet about some OSR publishers supporting the free speech of Nazis, because literally everything else that I tweet either has nothing to with him or is supportive of his books, or asking him directly.

Also what gives with folks not blocking you on all social media? It's not like my handles are radically different across platforms.
