• Get someone else to help you. If there is any of it still sticking out use duct tape. Stick it on then pull it off in the opposite direction the sliver went in to pull it out. If not, let it fester then squeeze it out with the puss. A sliver of what? Some people say put banana peel on it.

      This one's brass, I think. No one was around to help me, so I guess I'll just leave it in until it's ready to come out. The first thing I tried was duct tape, which I had done with wood splinters before, but it didn't work this time. I also tried tweezers and dug around in my finger with a needle for almost twenty minutes. It's probably too late to try a banana, but I'll have to remember that for next time.
