I ker-stabbed a nail an inch and a half into my hand the other day, and today I went in for a check up on it.

The doctor asked me what I was doing to take care of the hole, and I told her I was cleaning it and putting neosporin on it every day.

Then she said "Oh that is good, better than anything I can give you here."

Clinics don't have anything better than over the counter Neosporin? what is up with that?

Once I ran a nail clear through my toe. My dad had me soak my foot in kerosene several times over the holiday weekend until I could get to the doc. Doc asked what I had done and was amazed when I told him. He quizzed one of his elders who said it was the best thing to do, it draws out all of the rust & impurities.

Ouch! All right there Clint Eastwood. This is Chit Chat not "Prove you're a Bad Ass".

Seriously, I would have been crying like a baby and demanding that 911 send an ambulance... You win.

What's wrong with a simple solution?

Kerosene is okay unless you have John Madden-tinactin-type-on-fire-athlete's foot.

Don't you know? Dwayne is a badass. The man gets gangrene in his thumb from a baseball-bat sized splinter and then cures it with flash photography while holding components from Super Racko. Took down the super-villain Bagface without even flinching. Not a man you want to tussle with.

BAHAHAHAAAAA! Now that would sting worse than the nail I would think!

I used to get cut with sheet metal all the time, we'd put pipe dope on it. if it wouldn't stop bleeding, we'd slap duct tape on top to hold it closed. Ah... field surgery.

You can always use the RAMBO style, put some gunpowder in the wound and light it.
Or you can get a Tetanous injection.
