Not too long ago, I went on a bicycle ride and got my second scrape in two months, just being stupid really. But unlike the first time, that was more surface scrape, this one cut a tad deepish. Not enough to be dangerous or need stitches, but enough to bleed black and a tad more flowing than you’d normally see. Continue reading
EMT Gel – 1 ounce Review
I purchased this as I was looking at substitutes for more toxic and painful superglue.
They say it’s designed for pets, but this was recommended by a friend who has used it on himself when camping, and if he can use it, well, who am I to argue?
