Re: First Aid

Just do what grandma's did "if it doesn't sting, it ain't healing" and pour a bunch of alcohol or peroxide on it.
But I agree with you, things are getting just stupid and out of hand.
Whomever said statistics are math, doesn't know that math is nature, statistics are just a human invention. That is why only very few qualified people exist that really understand statistics (I ain't one of them) and should be licensed to utilize them, specially for policy creation.

Re: First Aid

Yeah, but if you had licensing it'd be down to the politicians to see that those who disagreed with their policies didn't get licenses.

Re: First Aid

I don't know much about microbes and infection, but it seems to be common sense that the longer the wound is exposed to dirt, the greater the chance of infection.
