...so deep that stitches would be justified and the first thought was "I'm glad this was not a GW2 BWE weekend".  Sick, maybe a little?  Bandaged now and typing one handed hoping the bleeding will stop soon.

    My keyboard has suffered through worst than pools of blood.....it would just be inconvenient and sticky.

    Weak.

     

    A real man (yes I can see the avatar, it's a joke) smashes the keys with his fist through a haze or pain and doesn't care.

    But, but, but....D3 requires that finger. How will you manage? image

     

     

     

    Seriously, wrap it tight and hold it above your heart.

    Ok...how did you know I was going to go there in the next post? Creepy.

     

    Pro tip!

     

    Edit: I can D3...just got to shift the fingers and use my middle/ring finger instead.  Thumb can still hit all naga buttons. ;.)

    Was it your right or left hand? If it was your right, you are out of luck in Diablo 3. However, you'd still be able to press 1 and run around in circles with your left hand, so GW2 should be no problem.

    Press 6. There, problem solved.

    I'm not stalking you. I repeat: NOT stalking.

    You need to disenfect which Im sure you've done.  Using rubbing alchohol or whatever. 

     

    Once the bleeding stops, a bandage or heavy bandaid over it will cushion the sensitivity and allow use.  It feels a little awkward but once its clotted a good solid cushion on the finger will at least allow it to be usable. 

     

    However for a PC user this is the worst kind of injury.  I dont know how bad you cut yours, but Ive done this before probably to a lesser degree.  Not pleasant. 

     

    On another wilder note my wife works at Sonic and claims she has discovered that lime juice in a wound hurts like holy hell.  However she also claims if it happens, the wound will completely heal in just a few days.  Which I found to sound incredibly wonky.  Except now her co workers are claiming the same thing.  Get lime juice in the wound, scream and cry like a baby, and then watch it heal right up.  No.....I wouldnt try it either.   image

    Just a fun fact, a keyboard is dirtier than a bathroom toilet seat :)

    Uhh... what?

    I can certainly imagine how that might be possible for some.

    I know that thought. I fell down the stairs, almost an entire story, a few weeks ago. The tip of my chin that was holding my four bottom front teeth in place was shattered, the gums with that shattered bone torn, and my upper lip pierced by two of the four bottom teeth that flew out. I got about 3 layers of stitches with the gum. My face was covered in blood and rug burns. The bottom teeth couldn't be put back in because the foundation was too damaged to keep them in place. But the good thing was that there wasn't beta weekend when that all happened! I was on some heavy pain meds and probably would have slept through the whole thing. It wasn't my first thought, but it came up after I got injected with some morphine.

    The ironic thing is how bad of a game Guild Wars 2 is. I don't get it, are you trying to be on the cool kid's bus? It's not a good game... Think we realized that after the first Beta Weekend.

    Alrighty then.  Actually you are on the cool kids bus.  Congrats. 

     

    Now you can put your sun shades on.....at NIGHT no less and stand in the corner at parties watching everyone else have a good time while whispering to everyone that happens to walk by you, " You're lame....yawn....lame.  You?  You're lame too.  You're cool.  No Im just kidding you're lame too.  "  

     

    You're like....one of the cool guys now......yeeeea......

    Oh yeah, I always keep my penis resting on the keyboard whenever im not using it.

    No! That would've been weird. They fed the morphine through my I.V tube and afterwards I got calmed down to a point where I could be less focused on the situation.

    I dont know whats happened around here lately, but Lucrecia cutting his/her/its finger is the most interesting thing to happen around here in weeks.

    Drink water and walk it off, you will be fine come BWE 2.  Still sucks though.
