Er yes. I actually am not aware of what my other personalities do unless they write it down or someone else tells me.

Well, that sounds like a real problem. One, which would make real life communication troublesome, because you do not remember what you said or heard yesterday. It would also make it easy to lock accounts to personalities by just not selecting the "stay logged on" option anywhere and not writing passwords down.

Fakeedit: And why use online forums for arguments? Notepad, be it a physical one or the program, would work just as well.

I suggest investing in some "finger cots": plastic, rubber or woolen finger protectors. Bandages may also help. You'll have a hard time using the finger to tap or grip for a while, yes, but the skin will heal over and a new nail will most likely grow back.

Nah, build your own, better, fingernails out of broken glass and roofing tar.


While I'm not a doctor and I'm pretty sure wierd is some kind of medic, and I know professionals do sometimes use things like superglue, I really, really don't think you're meant to superglue things to any part of yourself. Particularly not the rather vulnerable nail bed.

I think enough people know that it was intended to be used for medical stuff that they just do it. The reason it isn't a good idea is it can damage tissue and lead to worse scarring. I think there's a more expensive version available medically that works the way people think regular superglue works.

It's also generally a good idea to consult doctors for your medical advice. Not wannabes.

Fixing it in Windows is free also, if you're that technical.

The real reason is cited in the first link I gave to science direct;  Ordinary superglue is not very flexible, and leads to inflammation reactions when used in place of sutures, which is why medical grade cyanoacrylates were developed. (They have a different longchain formulation that results in a more flexible complex.)

Since this is a fingernail, and NOT say-- an elbow-- it should be fine.

Is "it should be fine" really the bar that you try to clear when dealing with medical shit?

Given it's just a fingernail, and not appendicitis, yeah.

Unless he has not been forthcoming and has diabetes, HIV, is on chemo, or is otherwise immune-compromised. In which case, losing the nail is a medical emergency.

Again, the degree of toxicity is equivalent to getting it on your skin. The complex itself is actually biologically safe. It's the product released during polymerization that are potentially toxic. This is why medical grade stuff has long chain complexes (octyl cyanoacrylates, usually.)  Don't eat the stuff, and don't use it to treat deep wounds.  A minor lasceration? Fine.  A broken fingernail? Fine. Deep tissue injury? No.

The solvent used for commercial "Liquid skin" is also potentially toxic.

Knowing what you are using is important to using it correctly.

I don't remember what it was for. But I don't think it was superglue. I think it was a live-action comedy web series.

I remember back when noscript could be used to prevent the ads from loading, and whatever you were watching would just continue.

I'm guessing it's my adblocker, but I never get ads. And when they switched over to the new videoplayer, there was a short span of time where I got free 1080p resolution. Really the only downside is that I can't watch eps when they come out, but patience is the one thing I really excel at. I mean, yeah, I have enough money to just buy premium, I wouldn't even miss it, but if I can get away with getting 95% of everything I want, why pay for the last 5%? It's simple cheapskate economics.
