Yay! Ordered spa for next next Sunday. (no, not you @SPA though if you'll come visit I promise to take you to a spa, if you want. ;-))
I ordered here - will go with wife who recently had birthday, except during covid that's our usual way to celebrate to/with each other's birthday. :D
@JourneymanGeek kaboom?
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I initially read that as will go wifi and assumed you would stream the event. I did wonder what your wife thought of that ... Wish her a belated happy birthday from me.
 
12:34 PM
@rene ROFL!!!! haha.... that's a really good one. :-D
So, since I won't be streaming it no need to wear my good looking underwear, the therapist shouldn't care anyway. :P
I'll send your wishes to my wife, she actually know you by now, as "the flower from the forum". (hiding from this_is_not_a_forum ;))

I bow to you, my young girl. Today, you gave me hope that someone on this planet is still using their brain.
 
@SPArcheon Isn’t that a regular band-aid?
 
did you watch the actual video?
 
didn't see the difference? I think it was pretty clear. Let me see...
Here, the modified band-aid is the one on the left. Do you get it now?
the pad is moved on one side, making it far easier to wrap on a finger.
 
oh. the padded bit is off-centre.
 
4:50 PM
Those have existed for ages
So someone used their brain ages ago. Not today though
The stupid thing is most first aid bandaid instructions will tell you to never wrap a bandaid completely around any appendages.
But then they sell stuff like this, marketed on wrapping around appendages ...
 
the closest thing I saw is something they call "extra long strip" - and it is not exactly the same.
 
@Tinkeringbell That’s because of lusers who wrap them too tight and then get gangrene.
 
@DavidPostill Yep.
 
If you don't go right around the finger they usually fall off in 5 minutes.
 
4:57 PM
@DavidPostill oh, yeah, I forgot some countries needs the instruction to tell them to raise the toilet lid too...
 
@DavidPostill you're supposed to stick them on diagonally. Mine still fall off in 5 minutes no matter how I stick them XD. The only ones that ever stuck well were fancily cut and folded over the tip of my finger
Learned to do that one after chopping partway through my thumb nail and the bleeding just wouldn't stop/started again with even the slightest bump
 
@Tinkeringbell the link triggers ublock filter.
 
i.stack.imgur.com/MzVy4.jpg < that's what I used back then
@SPArcheon Oh well it's not that important, just a link to one of those "newly invented" kind of bandaids that have been sold here for ages.
From a Dutch A-brand, that shows the band aid being wrapped around a finger, while their guidance always says not to do so :P
Worst part is probably that these are elastic, so even easier to wrap too tight
 
@Tinkeringbell you do realize that the one I posted about won't turn you into a mummy in the process, right? If anything, the fact this version exist only proves how one can be stupid.
Issue: it would be easier to wrap if it the band-aid wasn't symmetric:
a) make one side longer enough to wrap your finger five times.
b) move the pad on one side and keep the same size.
yeah... seems good.
 
5:10 PM
@SPArcheon it doesn't wrap around five times. It is barely longer than a regular bandaid the packaging is just dramatic
They're slightly "slimmer" than regular precut bandaids, which is a good thing for finger bandaids I guess as otherwise they're always in the way of joints.
But these are advertised as going around a finger twice, which is something most regular bandaids already almost achieve (those go around 1,5 times)
 
.. ok, fine, then I got the perfect version for you. Probably original too.
Good nightmares :P
 
5:56 PM
@SPArcheon Dang, it's hard enough to catch up with technological advancements of this century. Now you're telling me they could move the pad to the side this whole time?
I hate to be that guy (because then I would share a room with @Journey and nobody wants that) but unless you're gonna do archeological work or make mud pies or something, you don't really need to cover up a superficial wound that's not bleeding in today's hypersanitary society.
Band-aids are for the most part redundant.
And sometimes harmful too if the adhesive is too strong
