Default Wife says I need stitches. I think it'll be fine. What say you?

I've had a few other cuts about like this and never had stitches. Should I have this looked at?

Nah, liquid bandaid is more than enough. Regular bandaid with neosporin changed out a couple times a day is probably better though.

This right here!! This stuff is a sterile version of the superglue... It works great!



Clean it real well, get the bleeding stopped, put on new skin and hold it still until the new skin dries. Put about 3 coats and you're good to go.

Whats all this talk about super glue, new skin, etc.? Why back in my day we would just soak it in gasoline for an hour, put some Monkey Blood on it, a regular ol bandaid and get back to work. Sheesh.

Suck it up, buttercup. File an environmental impact statement and get out the old school, toxic methiolate, and dump it on! If you survive the burn it’ll heal in a day!!
