help heal small wounds and skin lesions by letter her dog lick them. She said the dog's tongue was cleaner than any bandage. I never had the heart to tell her that I thought I saw her dog trying to treat its own hemorrhoids. Happy

Super glue.

A while ago I slipped, fell, and gashed the back of my head. I had to go to Accident and Emergency for what I thought would be stitches.

They super glued my head! When they said what they were going to do I laughed at them, but they were serious, LOL

It worked, but I couldn't wash my hair for 5 days, then the super glue gradually washed away. But the wait was bad.

Early Vaseline
by Willy / August 13, 2010 12:25 AM PDT

For eons, Indians and others knew that petroleum pits/up wells provided a cure for injuries. Applying the "muck" and whatever form devised would aid in healing wounds. The earliest form of this is basically Vaseline uncured/natural and applied. It allows to cover the wound from outside agents and maintain the wound to heal itself faster. Later, the gentleman who cleaned Vaseline up into its current form would burn himself and allow the cure to heal the wound in a much faster time than other methods. Wow, what a selling point, it later became the medicine side of what is common Vaseline jelly.

Understand, besides it earilest uses, much of it was disgarded. It was a mess no one really wanted from the early forms of oil drilling and it pretty much was lying about.

That's the sort of stuff they should be teaching in the schools. If they spent most of the time now wasted on social programs instead on teaching about the pioneers of the basic things we use even today, how they were discovered or invented, how business made it successful, how government wasn't the agent for change, but entrepreneurs unencumbered by govt policies in those days were the change agents, etc, then the kids might actually learn something useful, instead of what all they are supposed to be offended about at every turn of the day. They could concentrate on doing something more than worrying what everyone else was doing that annoyed them.

I can't recall any great debate or hassles in what were my textbooks on school yrs. past. Now, it seems so much effort is mounted to appease some group or another. But, then think of the long term, we really have come a long way and overall not too bad for it. Its those dang blimps, that get all the attention. The school system is really a battleground of sorts for the community once it gets multi-faceted. But, then that's the American way, ever since Jamestown or similar. Introduction of new ways and/or possible adaption that works, if not by trail and error, learning by dying and passing the lesson of what really doesn't work. -----Willy Happy
