My finger has swelling a lot, it was not pretty and very dangerous, I could have lost all my arm if I had waited too long before going to the hospital.

Are cat bites dangerous?

wounds_-_cat_bite_injuries_to_humansCat bites can be dangerous both to other animals and to humans. In their mouths, all cats carry a large number of bacteria that are capable of causing tissue infections in bite wounds. One of the more common is highly pathogenic bacteria known as Pasteurella multocida. An infected cat bite wound will be red, swollen, and painful, and the infection can spread through the surrounding tissues, causing a condition called cellulitis, or through the blood to other areas of the body, causing a condition called septicemia (often called blood poisoning).

Infected people may suffer from fever and flu-like symptoms and, rarely, may die if proper medical treatment is not sought. Children, the elderly, ill, and immunosuppressed individuals are particularly vulnerable to developing severe infections if bitten by a cat.

What immediate action should I take if bitten by a cat?

The wound should immediately be washed under running water. Avoid scrubbing the wounds vigorously, or using strong disinfectants or other chemicals, since this may harm tissue and delay wound healing. You may clean the wound with a mild salt solution, made by mixing 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of table salt in 2 cups (500 ml) of water. Control bleeding by applying direct pressure to the wound using an absorbent dressing or bandage.

You should see a physician as soon as possible. Most cat bite wounds are small punctures that drive pathogenic bacteria deep into the skin. Left untreated, a serious infection can develop within twenty-four to forty-eight hours.

Do I really need to see a doctor?

Yes. It is advisable to see a physician as soon as possible in order to have the injury properly treated. Your doctor will likely prescribe antibiotics in order to reduce the risk of infection developing at the site of the bite or elsewhere in the body. Some wounds may need to be sutured (stitched) while others will be left open to heal. A tetanus booster may also be recommended.

Depending on the severity of the bite and the circumstances surrounding the bite, your doctor may also recommend that you receive a rabies prophylaxis treatment.

My cat bite my penis this morning, not a really great way to wake-up.

 

That's the wrong kind of pussy for a penis, gay, str8 or otherwise. Ouch.

35mm film has that look that's too unrealistic and unrelatable to modern tweens.

Modern digital filmmaking has a look that is unrealistic and unrelatable to me!

A lot of modern digital cinematography is so garishly dark with bad contrast. I reckon this is so because digital sensors don't require a lot of light, so they don't light sets as much as they did in the film days. With film, contrast was higher, and they used very strong and harsh lights to get the most out of sets and actors' faces.

I thought it was just me? Where did it come from?

 

Literally no idea. It's probably another of those insufferably American-centric ones which forces its way into international media till it eventually burns out, bewildering all non yanks for the duration.
