Carnies? Do you mean contortionists? They do loads of awesome things!

Ahh burns :c Burns are very annoying. Hopefully it's not too serious.

Basically, yeah. I heard hydrocortizone (sp?) also helps with burns, rashes, bites, etc. too~

Ehh, I usually just run it under some cold water, then apply some Aloe Vera. Any common burn is usually gone within 3-6 days, after that.

Yes, Kura, contortionists!
I'm hypermobile in both of my shoulders, and would love to try some of the things they do.

Most of my burns are pretty mild. Just spilling boiling water on my hand or something like that. My hands are pretty resistant to burns (and general pain) at this point. I actually once hot glued two of my fingertips to an object and it didn't even hurt. :D Mainly because I can't completely feel those fingertips due to nerve damage, though haha.

I generally don't do anything to take care of burns. If it's a cut (or cuts), I just use hand sanitizer, unless what inflicted the cut was particularly dirty.

By the way, Paladin, did the PM make enough sense? I:
You have no idea how many times I wrote and rewrote and rerewrote that.

Oh, just boiling water, nothin' much. XI

Most the cuts I get are from cooking. :I
But never knifes. It's always forks, blender blades, cheese graters, etc. I don't even know.

Uh, yeah. Thanks for taking the time to write it.
It was kind of strange wasn't it? The whole situation I mean.

Well, it only hurt for a couple of seconds, and it didn't even leave a mark, somehow. ?_?
Though I had already taken it off the stove.

Quote:
forks
how. How is that even possible? X}
A grater I can understand. But a fork...no.

Ah, no, I wasn't complaining. Just remarking.
Yeah. x:

I'll be back later today.

So, if you could move to anywhere in the world, where would you be living right now, Dcc?

Right where I'm living now, thank you very much. I've traveled enough to know that I need to go somewhere before I truly want to move there, and I haven't traveled enough to find somewhere I want to move to.

If I had loads of €€€, I'd stay right here in my own country. Since I don't, I'd say Norway or Australia. They seem like amazing countries to work in.

I have no idea. Maybe the UK? Besides that, I like where I am right now, thank you very much.

Well, to be honest, I think moving to the Dominican Republic would be nice. That being where my parents are from and all.

Probably Canada or Australia. I've always seemed to want to go to those places, don't know why. I also want to try and visit London at some point in my life.

The US in itself is boring in my opinion. I guess if you wouldn't want to move that's your thing, but personally I've always been one to want to find new places and new things but mostly on the internet.

Ehh. As boring as it can be here, I don't want to move. Imagine living in another country and not speaking the native language. That could just go horribly. T:
I also am just not big on the idea of being in a completely new place. I'm used to this area.

I'm battling on the showdown server for the first time in weeks. Their username is Glitchguy, so I assume it's the same one from here haha. I haven't battled there in weeks, and now I realize how poor my team is. X}

It's been over an hour, though. New topic?
Um. What do you guys do, aside from lurking here on PC?

Besides PC? Lurk other forums. Schoolwork, uh, I read books, I watch anime. Ride my bike. And, take care of my two younger siblings.

Oh, and I try to flip tables every chance I can. Does that count? :3

On weekdays I am absolutely exhausted from work so I don't do much during those days (imagine me trying to play tennis or something after nine hours of standing on my feet....r.i.p) but on weekends I like to go out! I've recently gotten into partying and whatever and it's fun n-n

When the time calls, I study. A lot.
When it doesn't, I'm playing several kinds of games. Or on a guitar. On kind of rare occasions, I'm drinking Heineken with some friends.

And that's about it. My life is dull and boring.

I used to never study and pulled 85-90%. Then I started engaging myself more in class and studying before tests, etc. and I managed to pull that up to 92-98%.

So it does help also, asking lots of questions until you're 100% sure you know what you're doing. Teachers are paid to make you understand, so don't feel bad if you have to ask and ask and ask, even if it's the same question (or similar). Their salaries depend on it lol

Also, going back to the burn thing two pages back, you're actually not supposed to run your hand in cold water. It aggravates the burn even more. That's what they teach you in First Aid training.

Although not a good thing to do, I can actually study well with music on. As long as it's not loud. No TV, and the door to my room is always closed when I study.

I did that in high school and finished with an average of 16 (max is 20 here). Did that in the first year of Uni and didn't go well. Two failed subjects told me "you don't just F around with physics".
I have no problems with my earphones blasting Megadeth in my brain while I'm studying. Actually, it makes it more appealing.

16/20 = 80% here, if it can be calculated that way lol That'd still be 5% above the average mark in Canada.

Best to get good study habits pre-Uni' or College because like you said, not realizing beforehand slams you with Fs XD and that's no good...
