Things that make me go, "WTF?"

Helpful hint found on Pinterest (of course):

**Use an egg membrane to stop severe bleeding.**

A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
You’re welcome.

My thoughts:
Are you freaking kidding me?  One second, let me crack open this egg and easily peel away the egg membrane while my body part is GUSHING blood (probably my pointer on my dominant hand.. no big deal).. so much so that I need to go to the ER and get stitches.  WTF?

The internet makes me want to /wrist sometimes.. seriously.
