    oh, don't you hate that?

    i was cutting some citrus peel for a summery drinkie-poo (i drink old single malt neat in the summer and summery drinks in the winter), when a text message dinged and distracted me. i then bounced the tip of my Yoshikane gyuto off the distal phalanx of the left index finger. i don't play around anymore (i've used everything from super glue to CELOX, but 10+ m HCL and an eyedropper seems to work the best for me), so i'm enjoying my drink, but that sucks.

    yes. it cauterizes the wound and studies show that HCL promotes wound healing. i rarely have a scar from wounds that warrant it. you don't use much, and as soon as the bleeding starts to abate you rinse in water. i learned it from one of the principal investigators at my old job (university molecular genetics department). and i used 30% HCL tonight, which is about 10m, so it wasn't all that concentrated. 12m tends to turn my fingers too yellow for my tastes.

    a few drops of blood always improves a drink.

    Interesting... I don't think I'm going to try that, lol. Btw, 10 M HCl is plenty concentrated. Pure water is only 56 M.

    and, as a disclaimer, i would suggest not introducing large amounts of HCL into your blood stream. a deep cut flows pretty heavily away from the venous system, so it's okay if you don't use much. the acid wasn't the point of this thread.

    but think about it compared to gastric juice. not all that concentrated.
