Damnit pulled a knucklehead...

Postby sfsuphysics » June 23rd, 2012, 7:54 pm

was holding a piece of wood while driving a screw through it, and the wood cracked and the screw went too deep, and into my finger that was on the other side, probably went 2-3 threads deep. The pain was immediate and I tried to pull my hand away but I couldn't, and rather than yanking super hard I did the wise thing and backed the screw up (get it.. screw up!!) anyways it bled for a while, still hurts like hell, but damn that was stupid on my part!

Just think, if you were Bry you'd never be more than 20 minutes away from such an event. 8O

I drove a screw through my thumb nail a month ago whilst underpinning the deck, to keep the pups out.

It hurt.

I recall about a decade ago the girls were argueing in the living room while I happened to be in the basement. I punched the living room floor a few times from the basement to tell them to knock it off. The last punch landed on a carpet screw that went completley through my pinky into my palm. I was unable to pull my hand off the screw so I had to twirl and unscrew my hand from the basement ceiling :lol:

hmmm I think I'm overdue for a tetanus shot... :roll:

hahah...yeowch! Luckily I didn't have to pull any gymastic feats to remove my screw but damn that sounds funny! It's been about 3 years since I've had the TDAP shot... I'm hoping I'm still good because I hate that shot because it hurts for days afterwards

Tetanus shots are good for 10 years.

They don't hurt much anymore either. Got one last year.

Actually I have a large can of Watkins Petro Carbo salve that has been around since before I was born. I plan to use it the rest of my life. Its good stuff. Originally for cows udders, but its great for minor wounds and for drawing splinters out.

No, I think you're good. No booster required. As a matter of fact, when i went back last year and insisted on a tetanus shot, they really didn't want to give me one because I said I wasn't sure the last time I had gotten one. I guess something in the new combination isn't good to get more than every 10 years or something.

I knew I was OK it was barely a scratch and i had been vaccinated a couple years prior, but I have hospital indemnity insurance that gives me $500 for an ER visit. :wink:
