At the beach the other day and stuff started to go flying. Reflexes got the better of me, but I didn't shoot the sheriff. I tried to grab for the stuff just as it was going under a fence rail.
I nicked the edge of the fence with the center two nails on my left hand. Both nails split, and folded back. OW. I did catch the plastic bag I was grabbing for though. Success?
The split nails kept catching on stuff after that, and bending more. More OW.
So I super glue the split. Not the fleshy bits, just the nail itself. Super glue in the fleshy bits is bad.
That lasted for about a day, and broke again while putting on a pair of socks. Fail...
I recalled how super glue reacts with paper fibre basically instantly curing. (it is exothermic, so be careful...)
So I super glued them both again, but this time embedded a tiny bit of paper towel over the top to bridge the crack.
This worked so well, I'm here writing about it. A bit of clear nail polish and the paper towel almost disappears too.
I accidentally opened a can of soda with that fingernail today and didn't scream in pain. I'd call that a success.

I realized today as I mowed the grass I was taking the same path that a slicer would take.
First I did the perimeters, outside first, then one inner perimeter.
Then I mowed the remaining area in strips. As I had waited too long, I made another pass opposing the first.
I sliced my yard 2 walls, outer first, line infill, 2 layers. :)
Now I need to go clean up the print with a string trimmer...
