1-2-3-pull

Band-aid innovation hasn't advanced much in proportion to the rest of medical science.

Particularly in areas of:

* band-aid stickability to bendy body/digit parts
* amount of paper trash generated by one goddamned bandaid.

My opinion?
They've been focusing too much on what cartoon characters to put on bandaids.
and where are the adult swim bandaids?

Now, i haven't tried the second skin-type liquid bandaid, but i refuse to believe it is that great if plain old bandaids are still around and sold by the gajillions.


Hi.
I'm Andy Rooney now.

ya know? people, with great reason, make so much fun of Andy Rooney, but really he's kinda just been videoblogging for years and years.

i recently had an allergic reaction to a non-latex band-aid. i asked the manufacturer what chemicals were in the adhesive (so i could avoid those), and they wouldn't tell me. i'm led to assume that maybe i have a peanut allergy and it's peanut butter in the adhesive. this is why they don't stick properly to human skin but might be great on a sandwich.

yasss.
i think i posted this just before coming over.

i actually do love that second skin stuff, frightening as it is.
i don't mind a good stinging/burning. just not a fire-burn.

I remember Andy's first videoblog, something about the wheel and fire.

...He's old.

The second skin stuff works great despite the horrible pain it causes.

overdroid, 1st of all... HI!

2nd... i don't mind the stinging. i don't mind a good stinging. i'm not a fan of pain, but if i gotta have some sort of pain, i don't mind that kind of stinging. rubbing alcohol or peroxide on a cut or whatever? don't mind it that much.
weird.
