Special report

This just in… Well, what special report might this be, you might ask yourself, as I’ve never done it before ? Is it an Oscar scoop ? Maybe an asteroid the size of New York is coming our way ?
Well, not really. But it’s pretty important nonetheless.

Let’s take a look at picture 1. Innocent looking right ? Makes your mouth water too. Beware though:

The top lid is quite a sturdy thing. It’s so tight, you have to use your thumb with all your power and push it upwards. Result ?

Wide open gap on my poor thumb (of which the main use is the thumb button on my Logitech cordless mouse, currently programmed for double click duty). Apparently, the described method to serve yourself a nice scoop of sorbet isn’t the correct one (as in both red circles, the plastic is quite sharp) (please let me know if you know a safer way). Precious red life water has been lost now, I’m already firing up the grill and putting on a big beef steak to replenish my red bloodcell count.

Incidentally, I just bought a new life saving gadget yesterday, it’s the Hansaplast Active Gel Strip. It’s as if fate wanted me to review it. I hate you, FATE !

Wow, the instruction leaflet says it regulates humidity and temperate, and includes an airflow control and bacterial defense system, while being waterproof and hypoallergenic.

Well, this is how it looks now (again, unfortunately, it’s near a joint again, so it’s still limiting my thumb dexterity by as much as 75%). If I’m not dead tomorrow, I’ll let you know if the wound heals faster and more natural than before (with traditional plaster).

    Weird design of that lid then.
    Keep us informed. Been wondering about all those new development in medical supplies as well

    If it works, let me know. I’ll recommend it to my hairdresser. She cut her finger while she was trying to cut my hair last Saturday, then applied a spray-on plaster from the same manufacturer. That didn’t work though, since blood kept dropping on my head.

    When are the visiting hours in the hospital?…

    And why are you eating sorbet ice in this kind of weather?

    Didn’t you see that coming? All the boxes with those lids (f.i. huzarensalade) have those dangerous edges….:roll:
