If we can land a man on the moon…

…we should be able to invent a plaster (Band-Aid) that fits neatly over the end of a finger.

Let’s face it: you’re most likely going to need a plaster when you cut the tip of your finger. In my case, I was a little careless sharpening a kitchen knife.

Wound technology: #fail

Just look at that pathetic little plaster. It’s not covering the cut very well. Though I am a great believer in getting air to a wound. When you’re making curry on a Sunday night, you don’t really want spices getting into an open wound.

Nope. Plasters are useless for one of the most common cuts. Get those NASA boffins on to the job. Heck, if they can invent Tang, they can invent a decent plaster.
