Band-aid hack

Good morning everyone,

It's going to be a nice winter day out there today with mostly sunny weather and a high of 9C. Enjoy it, because tomorrow and Thursday will be rainy, Friday and Saturday will be snowy and Sunday will be cloudy. Today might be the last chance to see the sun for a while...I'd better go for a run even though I don't really feel like it...Zzzz...

Japan has an interesting relationship with band-aids. Not only do they produce some of the cutest band-aids in the world, but they also use them for purposes other than wrapping up small cuts, such as using them to make their eyelids appear more round. A little creepy, but kind of cool.

But now it seems that Japan is yet again on the front lines of band-aid development-how to keep your band-aid from slipping off, images go in downward order starting in upper left

Just in case there’s any confusion, the method shown here is to cut the sticky part of the band-aid down to the cushiony part, and then wrap the cut pieces around your finger in a secure X shape.

This simple yet novel way of putting on a band-aid has a lot of benefits over the traditional “just wrap it around and move on with your life” method. First, it’s more secure, so it won’t just fall off. Second, it leaves less wiggle room for dirt and other undesirable foreign materials to get inside.

And third, all of that means less blood spilling out and onto your keyboard when you’re trying to work.

Well now we all have a great method for patching ourselves up after we’ve cut ourselves trying to make chocolates for our Valentine.

Have a great day!
