Here's a Tip for You!

After slicing up red jalapeno peppers, be extremely careful that you do not touch other body parts afterward.

Does anyone else have any sage words of advice?

Next time, it's worth it to buy latex gloves when slicing peppers.

I onced sliced habeneros then (even after washing hands) rubbed my eye. I couldn't see out of that eye for nearly 24 hours.

Don't wash your clothes in the shower while you're still wearing them, then ride your bike trying to air dry.

LMAO! Especially when its cold outside! Summertime here in Utah, its so dry that I would actually consider doing that. It evaporates in a millisecond.

If your taking a tight fast turn on your bike, and at the last
minute you think you're not going to make it---don't hit the
brakes!(voice of experience)

Hitting the brakes automatically straightens the bike bike back
up and forces you into a wider turning radius. Presto! Into the
curb (grass/ditch/cliff); not a good outcome. Far better to lean
the bike over as far as you can and try to take the turn. Even if
you end up laying the bike down flat, it's better than doing an
endo over the curb.

Since y'all are demanding an explanation, it's the title of an S. Clay Wilson comix strip from, I believe, an early Zap Comix. And yes, it is that head.

It's called 'pepper eye' in my household. I once roasted and peeled a whole bushel of hot New Mexican peppers in one sitting and my hands and arms were burning up past my wrists for a couple days afterwards. But latex gloves are still for wimps!

I had to go .....release liquid after slicing Habaneros. ALWAYS wash your hands before doing this! Trust me!

Some past experiences......

Don't get down on all fours and pretend to be eating food with the strange dog you gave table scraps to.
--Did this at age 3 or 4 and still have a minute scar on my cheek where dog tooth punctured it

Never, ever ask a woman whom you are not already POSITIVE that she is pregnant when the baby is due.
--I didn't do this, but "almost" did this to my (then) soon to be sister-n-law. I think BDG can speak to this one as well.

Never make a big money deal (car, house, etc...) when salesperson is rushing you into the deal for ANY reason.
--I did this buying a mobile home when I was 20 years old. I really got screwed on price and terms.

After you take the paper skin off your onion, wash it in cool water and your eyes won't tear up. Helps with peppers freshly washed too.

Just because Icyhot gets warm when you put it on your arm, doesnt meen it will stop at warm when you put it somewhere else.

At that point, a bathtub cant fill quick enough with cold water.
