Moments when you with you actually were your character?
I got jumped the other day by some freak with a pocketknife. Lucky for me my friend was around the other side of the car and kicked his ass(I'm a girl, and not terribly strong for my size), but I got a bad scrape out of it. Serrated knife. Feels bad, man. Also, does this look infected to you guys?

I walked out to my car one morning, and saw my neighbor and her father arguing with someone. I was getting my gun out of the trunk so I could go to school. Didn't realize until I had the gun that the guy they wer arguing with had a handgun and was robbing them. I brought my gun to bear and told him to get on the ground. He turned and shot at me, lightly scraping my shoulder. I thought I had been shot and fell to the ground. He fired wildly at me and ran to his friend in a van. I stood up and fired my gun with one hand 8 times into the van, messing up the tire. Police caught them 2 miles away.

Hot neighbor thanked me for catching a bullet to save her car, made me dinner, felt good man.

What, are you in some backwoods redneck part of Alabama where they don't teach very basic first aid such as WASH AND BANDAGE WOUNDS? I'm not saying you have to stitch it, but christfuck this stuff is very basic.

Fine, here's what you do:
All of these steps can be done in the shower, if you wish. Not a bath. It's too dirty.

1. Get a clean washcloth. (Recently laundered, unused.)
2. Get it wet with water.
3. Lather soap on the washcloth.
4. Gently clean your wound with the soapy washcloth.
5a. Rinse the wound with water.
5b. (Optional) Apply Hydrogen Peroxide to disinfect. Simply pour a little directly on the wound. Costs very little at most pharmacies.
6. After the wound is dried of water, apply a clean bandage.

Repeat process at least once a day.

Buy some cotton balls so you can rub some hydrogen peroxide on them too if you need to scrape gunk out. Put neosporin on an appropriate bandage, slap it on, and you're done.

It's because of the loose tolerances of the gun (that also contribute to its nigh-indestructability). This is also the reason bolt-action rifles are still highly favored as sniper weapons--you need a certain degree of looseness in the part fitting for a semi-auto to function properly, and said looseness lowers accuracy a bit (enough to matter to a sniper).

Pouring HP on a wound is good if it is a large wound or there is a lot of blood and shit to clean, but for small wounds and cuts, pour a small amount onto a cottonball and gently rub the injury. This helps remove dead tissue/ fluids/ bacteria, etc.

One time I got a small mosquito bite on my knee, back like when I was 14. I scraped it until it turned into a scab. Yeah I was stupid. Now here's where it gets worse.

I blew my nose, and accidentally rubbed some of that shit on the open sore. Within the end of the week I had a swollen infected sore on my leg. I was a total idiot and had a bunch of phobias at the time so I didn't say anything. Like two weeks later I had a small sunken pocket of flesh where puss squeezed out like a river. Hell I even ripped some small grey tumor or some shit out of it. I don't know. Then it proceeded to heal up properly. I had a small hole in the side of my knee for a few years until it filled in. Follow that up with a few smaller scale but similar problems.....

I am now a 23 year old with an immense appreciation for proper hygienic practices and principles. I wash my hands often, properly clean and disinfect all wounds, and regularly clean and disinfect things that I use regularly.

When I was 12 I helped out with some electronics prototypes, mostly soldering and hot glue/plastic stuff (they've sinced miniaturized the design and dropped out a lot of the needlessly bulky crap), for a family friend. Law of Averages struck, and I fucked up. Hot plastic burned a hole straight through the palm of my left hand. Almost pencil-sized in diameter. It only took one, maybe two weeks to heal, though, thanks to my excessive(?) use of hydrogen peroxide. Fizzed, felt cool and bubbly and weird, but I never flinched in the application. The scar's hardly there, now.

The AK 47's (assuming you're actually talking about an actual 47 and not another variant) "poor" accuracy is due to the 7.62 cartridge's semi-questionable ballistics (compared to that of the .223) out of a barrel that short and the violent, loose action of the bolt, but that's only when firing in automatic. Semi-auto, they're perfectly fine and just dandy as far as accuracy goes.

Without going into the different ballistics and different design goals, the AK-47 has a reputation for lesser accuracy due to the barrel flexing during firing, which will obviously throw the bullet a bit off course.

Ah, hot glue guns. I was working on a science project back in the 6th grade that required such an application. I was holding the object steady while a friend was gluing, but because it was an old glue gun it got stuck and searing hot glue poured all over my hands, leaving me with first- and second-degree burns and quite a collection of blisters. It being the 6th grade, my hands became a topic of much debate until it was settled that one particularly large blister was anvil-shaped and not, in fact, tornado shaped.

Man, if another nation ever actually invades the US in an official, "our nation is attacking your nation, roll your defence die" way... There are very few people who WON'T be at the closest national guard post asking who they should shoot.

On top of that, can you imagine the logistics nightmare that would be the invasion of the US? Unless they WMD us first, they have to deal with a nation full of people that celebrate their freedom by blowing stuff up. A nation full of backyard bomb enthusiasts and mythbusters watchers.
