Today, while cleaning a carpet in my house, something in it sliced my foot. I couldn't find what it was, so I went to clean the wound. 10 minutes later, I sliced my foot again on the same thing. I still can't figure out what it was. FML

Fun fact, #45: the bacterium that causes tetanus infection doesn't live exclusively on rusty surfaces. The bacterium is simply anaerobic, meaning that it doesn't use oxygen, so it tends to live mostly in the ground; rusty objects are also commonly found in the ground, which leads to the belief that tetanus infection results from rusty objects puncturing the skin.

Regardless of possible tacks onthe ground, though, it's still a good idea to keep your vaccine records up to date, including tetanus.

#52. that was actually very informative. thanks for that, I was hoping you would say something stupid when I started reading that so I could say " paging doctor faggot".

thanks #52! OP said it sliced the skin.. so wouldn't that be puncturing? since the object went through the layers of skin in order for it to be a "slice"

Haha very clever, wouldn't have thought of that, but yeah just beat the carpet with a hammer or something to flatten the object out or get it professionally cleaned.

Time to vaccum your carpet and see what it picks up. It could be glass that you keep cutting yourself on and you just can't see it because it can blend in depending in the color carpet and size of glass. And shoes help in this situation.

Or it could be a mutant from Monster Level X that stomps like my neighbors upstairs and has nails like my great nana all while singing row-row-row your boat through a car wash.

That was my first thought too, 5. Even the tiniest shard of glass can cause a very deep and painful cut and tiny pieces of glass can be very elusive.

You can't back track from the trail of blood? Maybe try a magnet, you could get lucky and it might be magnetic. Or for glass, try shining a torch down low, it might sparkle.

Haha I was actually thinking why someone would use a small piece of wood when you can use a flashlight... My bet is that it's something heavier than a shard of glass, since it didn't move when OP got cut the first time, heavy enough to still be implanted in the same spot on the carpet.

Torches arent just sticks with flames. I mean, I have a propane torch, almost like a flame thrower......its pretty cool. It shoots flames a good foot and a half.
