    I was swimming when it happened. Do I need to put a anti infection cream or just a plaster? It doesn't hurt but it looks bad.

    Nah that's for shark bites. The more leg you're missing, the more ammonia you need!

    Best put some cream on it, just in case. I'm sure you'll be fine, though. After all, sailors used to rub salt into their wounds to disinfect them and there is plenty of that in the sea!

    Given that a shark-attack is possibly the ultimate cure for a full bladder, that advice may be even less practical than it seems.

    You try to do your best, but someone always puts you down. There's no helping some people.
