    I Stapled My Thumb

    It was a tiny stapler, about three inches long, and after reloading it I just squeezed without replacing the bottom half. Of course a staple shot right into my thumb which surprised me for some reason. It hurt but it wasn't too bad. In hindsight I regret more my decision to...
