Don't pull on it! It may actually be a piece of bone poking through the skin.

What part of NH are you in? If you can hear a noise like a little Japanese girl being chased by Godzilla, that's me.

Lube the sliver up with Brake Free,it will slip right out of your foot.Then plug the hole in your foot with a cleaning pacth soaked in some Bacardi 151,this will dull the pain.

It's not really that bad, I'm just kind of wimpy. And I like to complain.

My personal ER doctor friend is on his way over, he doesn't realize yet exactly what kind of a house call he's making.

I told him to bring nurses and morphine.

A good woman who cleans & scrubs the floors on her knees would have found that sliver before it damaged you. You must instruct the GF to do a better job of tidying up the house if she wishes to remain in your good graces.

I jammed a two inch screw into the upper middle part of my foot once, I was going to just yank it out with pliars but had my 12 year old daughter use a philips screw driver to take it out instead.

Size of a tent stake? Use robogrips

Rodent make sure you get everything cleaned out.

I had a good splinter in the ball of my foot when I was a kid and I thought I got everything but apparently some material was left. Couple months later Ihad to have it cut out with a big ole ovocaine shot through the ball of my foot. Felt reeeeeeal good ya know.

EB got part of it out, after digging around in there with needles and tweezers. Part of it is still in there. It probably only weighs a couple pounds, but it LOOKS big.

Laconia/Gilford area. I'll keep a window open and listen. When does the ER doc arrive?

Once it gets infected the puss will help flush it out. J/K

Good grief.....pull it out and plug the hole.......I work at a lumber store.....I've pulled pieces of wood out of my hands big enough to put back on the shelf......

Quit being a wuss. Break out your pocket knife and dig it out.

Okay, the quack has been here a while now. I think his real name must be "Mengele". He says I'll need to go to the ER to get it out either now or "after it gets infected".

I have a feeling Dr. Mengele and EB (from now on A.K.A. Eva Braun) are conspiring together to make me suffer and die.

We require photographic verification of these claims.

If so, STOP IT !!

Drive to Weirs Beach before the end of the summer with LiveFreeOrDie and I'll meet you there by boat for a beer.

I'll be the guy with the prosthetic foot.

don't pull it out! You'll only make it worse! you need to set the end on fire and push it through.
Link Posted: 8/14/2005 3:31:51 PM EDT
Come on ya big pussy, cut it out.


When I get a sliver, I cut it out myself. When I get cut, if it's bad enough, I stitch it myself.
Link Posted: 8/14/2005 3:47:02 PM EDT
Why would you put a sliver as big as a tent peg in the center of your foot ? Where you doing something manly worth bragging about , Or just trying to win a Darwin award ? Is it a nice peice of maple or mahogany or just some ol Chinese pallet wood ?
