papercuts

Post by Jiro »

I got a pretty wicked paper cut today. Well, several really. I was doing some shit for work and suddenly I look down and see my right index finger all bleeding and shit. Turns out these little cardboard business cardy things cut the fuck out of my knuckle and it was awesome. Decided to joke about it with my boss when I got back and he was like dude you gotta fill in an incident report and I wasn't happy.

Anybody else had hardcore papercuts before? Did you cut off your face with a ream of paper? I dunno making threads isn't my speciality, I'm more of a "sit quietly in the corner and watch people" kind of guy.

Paper cuts killed my family. I don't really like talking about the details.

I worked as a photocopy chick for a year or two, and I got about one paper cut in the entire time.

You know what hurts more? Plastic cuts. No-one ever talks about them.

That's because of the plastics industry, they do a good job of keeping people quiet if they squeal highly satisfied by ensuring safety of the highest standards and making sure plastic cuts are purely a work of fiction. There is no such thing. By the way, Kimra, whereabouts do you live, and around what time of the day are you usually at home? I have a present I would like to give you.

I don't know what you are complaining about, papercuts are delicious.

I got a papercut on my lip once.

You don't even know the meaning of the word pain.

I fell off a skateboard, mouth first, into a bitcherman road once.

Now it's a true statement!
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

But at least I know the meaning of love (It's "Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more").

Apparently it's 'bitumen'. In my defence google thought I might be right.

Well it certainly feels like the other spelling when you're going at full pelt on a bowed razor scooter and you hit a speed bump and skid along it on your knee and once you stop skidding you can see patella. My point is that it hurts like a bitumen.

Also I got a paper cut while reading twilight, I felt that I deserved it

Also once I got a cut from the corner of a brick wall it split my finger right open it was crazy

If you want to be really correct, you should probably use either "asphalt(ic) concrete" or "bituminous asphalt concrete." Bitumen is just the tar that is mixed with Portland cement to bind together the sand the stone. Most people around here just say asphalt though.
