That probably explains why it wasn't working

I just realised that for the past week I have been spraying an infected cut with insect repellent instead of antiseptic spray.

What stupid things have you done lately?

Not lately but about 10 years ago I used my shower cream as body lotion for several days (the bottles were pretty much identical) and had no clue why my skin started to become redder and redder and eventually peel off...

I dyed my hair last night. I didn't bother to read the directions, because I have done this a lot.

Halfway thru the incubation period (sorry...scientist) I realized that I bought a 'lightening' kit not straight hair dye.

I immediately had to go wash my hair because I was afraid I was gonna be blond (not that I have a problem with blondes, but I don't look good as one).

Doesn't look half bad, and maybe this kit will take. Normally when I dye my hair it only lasts a couple of weeks.

How's the bug problem been, though?

I've read somewhere (hah, love that precision?) that you can super glue small cuts and such. And since you had a recent super glue adventure, I thought that might be useful. Err, sorry, your FRIEND had a superglue adventure!

Styley, that is really hilarious!!

I guess they both sting, huh?

Bardiac - there was a case in New Zealand a few years ago where a farmer died after supergluing in a tooth that had fallen out.

Jana, I didn't know that. I'm sorry. I wonder if he swallowed some?

I actually have read that it's okay to super glue SMALL cuts. It's basically the same thing that the "liquid bandages" are.

Actually the superglue thing is right. I once worked in a lab where they injected some small drug release capsule into mice. It was a fairly large hole, but not enough for a stitch. And there was this big deal about how they looked at the ingredients and it wasn't anything more than superglue. They actually sell the stuff to medical researchers at a HUGE markup.
