My back was itching, so I built myself a backscratcher using a plastic fork and a handle I rolled out of some paper. Have you ever actually paid attention to plastic utensils before? Because they're made out of molded plastic, they have this ragged leftover-plastic thing along their equator that can get surprisingly sharp. End result: I put some hair-thin scratches on my back that bled just a teensy bit, just enough to form hair-thin scabs and heal over. And itch. I'm not dumb enough to scratch them again, I just needed to tell you because it's damn annoying. (I have since taken a nail file to my improvised backscratcher, and now it should work perfectly)
