I’m a bit behind with these vault posts, so I think we’ll have two today to catch up, and to start with we’re going back to the 29th of August, 2005, and an incident where I managed to get a staple in one of my fingers.
I Stapled Myself
August 29th, 2005 at 09:45pm
This evening I finally got around to making a 2CC poster to attach to my school bag. I tried many different ways of attaching it to the exterior of my bag, including multiple sticky tape attempts. Unfortunately all of these attempts were unsuccessful, so I decided to use staples. I got the stapler and realised it was empty, so I filled it and proceeded to staple the corners of the poster to the bag.
The top corners were easy as the stapler reached the corners around the zip. The bottom corners however could not be reached by the stapler and I instead had to unfold it and put something behind the paper to bend the staples in place and make it easier to staple. I used a metal ruler, however the first staple I did that way caught me with the ruler slightly out of position and my finger in position, so I ended up with a staple in my finger which, needless to say, hurt.
I eventually got the staples in the right places and I now have the following half-A4 poster stapled and taped to my bag. (Some of the tape couldn’t be removed after it stuck to the paper, so it is now providing extra support.)

Is your finger all better now? Or is it gross and gangrenous?

Still hurts a bit, and the Band-Aid is preventing me from using my finger much because I can barely bend it.
I should have pointed out that it is my right index finger which got stapled.
I’m trying to keep it dry which isn’t easy at times…and mostly limits me to one hand when using water.

Samuel, I hate your radio presenters. Bunch of wankers. But i’ll respect your taste because, sam, you’re awesome.

Interesting statement, just wondering, why do you think that of them?
I take it you don’t like them and I respect that, I’m glad we can be democratic about this.

Well, my statement was rash. I just saw John Laws and went for it. But I dislike Laws because of certain view he holds, mainly spurting right-wing tosh and spreading fear and hate within the masses to please one person – John Howard.
I saw laws and figured the rest were in on it.

Fair enough. Can’t say that I neccesarily agree with you, but that’s what makes democracy good.
To my knowledge, at least one of those presenters don’t get on with Laws.
