Never heard of that one, but back on the farm we'd douse a cut with turpentine and it would stop bleeding almost instantly.

I really ought to stock some in the van; it does suck to bleed on someone's carpet.

I stabbed my left hand with a chisel, had to get 3 stitches, or like you said it wouldn't stay shut. Same with a 4 stitcher in my right palm. That was a face mask though :

Sometimes you gotta get stitches.

You old tough ass

Ive had a couple butterflys wouldnt work on. When I almost cut my thumb off a few years ago for one. Two arteries and the flexor tendon. Did end up having a surgery though. Got about 70% feeling/use back. Squeezed a tennis ball for a year to get my grip back.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAW!!!

And suppose your farm had Mercurochrome and Merthiolate too?

Jeez, the stuff we used to get doused with.

Bag balm, tar cream...

Precision Floors - be glad, very glad there are Urgent Care facilities is all I'm saying...

Well, in our home it went like this: ifn Mom had brought out only the Mercurochrome or Merthiolate, we would have tried squirming away, screaming the whole time.

But by bringing out both and saying "well, which is it gonna be?", we'd stop sobbing long enough to ask for the Tincture, and it'd be over in just a second.

I'm pretty d*mned sure the cough syrup in our day was drained from the gas tank of a long stored tractor and blended with a narcotic.

I'd a called you and anyone else a dumb ass for neglecting something that needs stitches.
Day or two later it's too late.
Back to that dam laminate, that sh is razor sharp ripping up, jagged as well, I think you you say this stuff is garbage and forget to respect it till its gone.
I only read the last few posts whatever this thread is about!
