The more that I think about it I wouldn't put anything in my eye that I would onto a wound except water.

Yeah, the point of that is to say that alcohol and hydrogen peroxide are usually contraindicated.

Soap and water is usually ideal,

Too hot an alcohol base - most effective is 70% (wich is why wood alky is sold at that strength) which will penetrate the outer membrane and whack "germs", 95% will burn the outer layer of some microbes but not kill them.

Doctors say it does more damage than good in open wounds, esp peroxide.

Washing is more effective.

Don't dive into an empty pool.

Don't throw anything with a blast radius further than you can throw.

Barbed wire can be used as a rope substitute, sometimes.

If you are going to the blue sweat lodge right after it has been pumped:

Take a good length of TP and make a nice sling across the shitter.

If you don't you will splash into the blue juice and risk rectal burn for the next few days, on account of the backsplash of effluent.





Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! It burns!

There's always something worse which can happen (and probably will.)

Don't eat anything you don't recognize as food.

Avoid puking in your tent... or in the tent of anyone who can beat you up.

If you find yourself on Eplaya and the only thing that pops up on the new posting threads is scalpers selling tixs to bringins, start chating on anouther thread to bury them, then find some one that has posted somthing like "looking for face value ticket" and bump it up. scalpers will learn that there is no $ to be made here and they will go else where. oh and bump up the ones that are selling face value ones untill phone# start showing up then let it sink.


oh and when you find a piece of MOOP on the playa. pick it up and yell "For MEEEEEEEEEEE! For MEEEEEEEEE!" then take it back to your car and put it in there. Playa provides!

Don't eat anything that you can't pronounce.
If it moves, salute it; if it doesn't, paint it; if it smiles at you, fuck it in the ass.
That is all.

In a backwoods country restaurant in a foreign country, and no one speaks english but you, and they're looking at you really funny, but then offer you the unadvertised "special"...

Leave immediately, before you become tomorrow's "unadvertised special"...

No matter how much you rub it that dried up booger at the hole on the tube of lotion will never become creamy again.

Avoid the daily special at a restaurant if the waitress uses air quotes to describe it as "Chicken."

When chained to the belly of a truck's frame/chassis, it is in your best interest to brace yourself when you see a speed bump ahead.

sitting in a low wheelchair with floppy legs that you tape to your stumps and keep kicking up, does not make a good cossack hollowe'en costume.

Comparison is closer than you think. The USG plant (RIP) that made SheetRock dry wall was
in Empire NV very close to the playa.
