And make sure to get special finger bandages. Those things have helped me SOOOOOOOO many times with massive finger cuts

I've found krazy glue to really be useful with deep cuts.  Probably not the greatest method, but it's worked for me so far.

That seems like a... horribly bad idea.

You don't want those chemicals on your skin, let alone in it...

I can believe it. It basically is an artificial scab.

In fact, according to wikiality: "Cyanoacrylate is a tenacious adhesive, particularly when used to bond non-porous materials or those that contain minute traces of water. It is also very good at bonding body tissue, and while this can be a bothersome (or even dangerous) side effect during everyday use, it has been exploited for the benefit of suture-free surgery"

Some varieties of superglue are designed for medical use. Yours, assuredly, is not, and getting it in a wound is bad not only because it cures on living tissue, but it can increase the risk of infection.

Well that was all I had at the moment, besides scotch tape Smiley

I don't suggest doing this, but it sure does work if you have nothing else to use

Things like safety matter.
One thing I have learnt is that dont say something then contridict your self.
My wood work teacher was showing my class safety when using a bandsaw and how important it is to not put your hands near the blade. Then let's just say there was an accident and now my teacher doesnt have a thumb on his left hand.

THINGS DO HAPPEN BY ACCIDENT and sometimes you can't be prepared enough for it. But by being prepared and aware you can greatly lower the chances of  bad things happening. If my teacher was to use a scrap piece of wood to push it the little extra distance, his thumb could still be on. Simply by preparing himself so that his thumb didn't have to go near the blade.

Actually, super glue was developed for the express purpose of sealing up wounds, that's why it bonds so fast to skin.

On topic, Remember safety when not working as well. If your gonna trip over with your gear in game, make sure you dump the weapon you were holding before you go down, lest you land on it and really fuck yourself over.

He is right it does hurt to land on your gear. Funny story, my mates and I were practicing getting out of the vehicle we use and then quickly getting into formation. Well I decided I was Master Chief and jumped out of the vehicle while it was moving. The instant I touched ground I was flung forward to then perform three barrelrolls. This was with full equipment on including backpacks with balsters in it and the sidearms in pockets and on hips. IT HURTS ALOT! Not only the landing on your blaster but also your blaster could break. Leaving you unarmed and injured aswell as a zombies lunch. om nom nom

luckly the worst thing that has happened to me while modding guns was I gashed my index finger with a knife after a failed attempt to reinforce my LS's boltsled with epoxy putty and having to whittle it away so the sled would actually fit properly in the tracks again

Actually, super glue was developed for the express purpose of sealing up wounds, that's why it bonds so fast to skin.

Cyanoacrylate uses water as a catalyst, which is why the moisture on skin makes it bond quickly. It was never originally meant to be for wounds- it was accidentally created in an attempt to make transparent plastic, then marketed as an adhesive. It was used by field surgeons in Vietnam (twenty years later) because if you have a two-inch hole in your gut it can't get much worse. It wasn't safe or practical then, and modern cyanoacrylates have a different chemical composition that eschews certain natural ingredients in favor of more effective synthetic counterparts which are far less benign when introduced to wounds, making it even worse.

When removing air restrictors the hard way (like from an Alpha Trooper where it has to be drilled out), make sure to be VERY careful about getting rid of the orange plastic powder.  I blew though the chamber to test the airflow without the restrictor, and I ended up inhaling a ton of little orange plastic bits.  Not fun at all.

My worse enemy when modding is my soldering gun. I either burn some hair (I have long hair, just sayin) or burn my finger(s) somehow.
Not as bad the other posts, guess I'm kind of lucky

ive used running water and those air duster things to get all the pieces out, works really well.

Yeah, I usually use running water to get the crap out, but I have inhaled the dust by accident as well before. Not good times.
