Nail Biting…on August 2, 2011 at 12:01 am
Ya know, just minutes before I posted this, I bit my nails… Carl Damnit…
So Diablo 3 has a Auction House where you can sell stuff for FOR REALZ dollars. I think this is a great idea even though yeah Blizz is taking a cut too. So it’s both a cash grab and a good thing. I don’t wanna get screwed over by some kid in Arkansas on the grey Diablo grey market. So having a venue that’s safe to buy and bid on is a very Cool thing. Differing opinions? Leave a comment and we may discuss!
So Scott over at Nerf This has started an IndieGoGo (kickstarter type thinger) for his book. it’s a solid deal and a solid book! give em your support! he’s been a great person to I am ARG!
also this is awesome…
So like always you can leave a comment or follow me on Twitter or check out my deviant art.
Also (and I hate whoring myself like this but…) it’s august and all the Voting websites have reset so if you feel inclined to you may vote. It’s been a great thing to get new people into the strip.
I’m with you there. God knows how many times I’ve tried to stop biting my nails, all to no avail.
Here’s what ya do: Go find some kind of nasty liquid that will harden or leave residue, and put it on your finger nails. I used transparent spray paint, worked like a charm!
stuff on my nails? That’s a whole other comic estel. a whole other comic indeed.
I use to try using finger nail polish because it tasted horrible, but sadly it never worked.
Thanks for the rss upgrade btw, it’s now perfectly readable =)
And I have a similar problem with the skin around my nails. The big problem here? Besides it looking like shit, and my looking like a twerp while biting, I sometimes bite off too much, and that hurts like a b*tch!
Yeah I don’t get the nail biting thing. My boyfriend does it so I punch him every time I catch him. Some how it’s not working…
Honor shall be mine!
Nyahahaha. But really, those Endermen scare the bejesus outta me. Something about the whispering and the standard horror esque way they get closer to you and whatnot.
Can’t wait to start killing them.
what’s wrong with biting your nails anyway? As long as you don’t swallow them, there are no ill effects other than your nails got shorter.
I bite my nails, though no one can really tell, apparently I’m very neat in my nail biting, my Human Anatomy & Physiology teacher informed me that nail biters tend to have stronger immune systems though
Today you’ve learned a thing – people who read your comic care more about their nail hygiene than Diablo 3’s auction house. I personally am not a biter, but I’m a tearer. I just love the feel of chipping a little notch away into the corner of my nail and ripping off a big, pointy piece of crescent moon. A nice, perfect semicircle, like a smile made by you, for you, held between thumb and forefinger, representing the ultimate triumph of man over keratin.
Hmm. Perhaps I romanticize my idiosyncrasies a bit too much.
I used to bite and tear my nails all the time. Ever since I was a child. My parents tried nail polish and bitrex or something, it was horrible, but I’d just chew on through that shit, hahaha. Slapping and punching doesn’t work either, it just makes sneaking the chew a game, even if it’s just subconsciously.
I’m 26, and I’ve only just rid myself of the habit two years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I still rip off a nail every now and again, and if I’m really anxious it can be hard to stop myself. The way I did it was by training myself to replace the habit with a less damaging but similar one. I started to clean my fingernails instead of biting them, with the corners of my teeth, other fingernails, or a nail file if you have one nearby. The trick isn’t to stop doing it altogether, it’s to train yourself: every time you find your finger in your teeth, stop with the one (or whatever number) finger nail, and then dutifully clean the rest. There will be a long time where you’ll be sporting 5-8 nails at most, but eventually you learn to keep a nail file at your computer desk, and to clean and file your nails every few days at least.
Also, ladies don’t like jagged, torn fingernails. Because they’re ugly and speak of poor self control. That’s why… right.
