|12:52 pm - squeam!|
I pulled a splinter out of my finger last night.
Rather, I received a splinter from the broom closet door so I ran it under warm water, then carefully picked away enough skin around the Point of Entry so I could get a fingernail under the offending bit o' wood and pull it out whole.
I don't claim to be hardcore, but that core was about as hard as it's been for quite some time. I felt like I was in an episode of Lost or something, ok.

While reading this I was trying to visualize you treating your own serious injuries, rambo-style, and because of your LJ icon all I kept coming up with was Stanley Spadowski cauterizing a serious mop injury with gunpowder.
When I was a youngin *waves cane* we used to get splinters all the time from carryin in firewood (pronouced "fir-wood")and you learned to pull em out with yer TEETH.
Well, ok, I never could do it but my dad was amazing.
I would've done that had there been enough of the splinter exposed to get my incisors around. Sadly, there was only enough for a fingernail.

You could, like, survive in the jungle or something.
Try picking something up off the floor with your toes. That always makes me feel like I could kill a tiger.
Wow, no tweezers or anything? That is hardcore.
I don't know anything about Lost except that a couple of my friends keep swooning over one of the cast members in particular, so based on that scant knowledge I'm imagining you desplinterifying with sexy hobbit boys around you. I'd think that might improve the experience a bit, at least for me.

I third the tweezers idea. That, or nail clippers could work...if burned first under fire.
