    Good call. My truck would have shrugged it off, my foot, different story.>>

    Did that once. Lucky for me it was a chunk of yellow poplar. Still hurt.

    Dropping a bag of wood pellets hurts the foot a lot less. The suck factor increases exponentially when said bag breaks after being dropped on said foot.

    Good plan. I dropped a split tonight but fortunately it missed my slippered toes.

    I don't load my stove barefoot anymore, after an ember popped out and fell between my toes.

    Blacksmith thick- if you're gonna drop something heavy on your foot, it won't be nearly as bad if you pick up your toe just a bit. Probably a reflex you need to develop over time

    Ouch is right.

    Anything involving the stove should be done fully clothed, as I've learned.

    Went to load the stove one morning barefoot, and somehow a 1/2 dollar sized red hot coal came flying out and stuck to the top of my foot right behind the big toe. That sucker didn't want to come off despite the moves I was making and put me in a world of hurt for several weeks.

    Used to see throbbing toes in the ER. Usually had a lot of blood under the nail causing a lot of pressure. We would heat up a paperclip and burn a hole in the nail. The pressure was relieved once the blood was no longer trapped. Sounds bad, but they always felt way better!

    Yup, that works.
    Very small diameter drill bits, held in a small tap handle will work as well. It looks gross, but is painless to do.
    Never tried that on a tow, though.;)

    The hot paperclip gets through the nail without pressure. I have seen other methods, but anything that puts pressure on the nail hurts like hell until you get through it.
