I started jabbing daily with slin pins several months back. Since then, I've started being more gentle with my entry and exit. I'm not entirely sure which is best though. I can think of pros and cons for both. Interested in what other people do/have to say.

Some like to slide it in gently while others like it hard and fast. Haha JK. I use a 25g needle and I prefer to basically touch it to my skin and push it in pretty slow. I never feel any pain this way, just a little pressure. After you clean the area make sure to let the alcohol on your skin air dry, and it you won't get any stinging. Also if your muscle starts to tighten or spasm it helps to just look away and inhale.

I had my wife who is a nurse give me an injection one day and she jabbed it in. Did not much like that. Probably just alot of it depends on what you get used to.

Haha, if it’s a finger in the ass then it’s an easy question to answer (always slide, never jab 😉)

but as above, I think we probably all have our own rituals. If I’m pinning someone else I jab it in. When I pin myself I put the needle to the skin and gradually build the pressure until it breaks the skin. I don’t think this is the best way btw, I just can’t bring myself to jab it in 🤷

ultimately I don’t think it matters, as long as the compound gets to where it’s meant to be it’ll do what you want.

I think the bigger issue (that I have anyway) is keeping the needle steady. Either because of stims like clen or when I’m putting 2.5 ml into my glute (I have to use a few hand positions on the barrel to move it all the way down as it’s a long barrel and tough location) - that all creates more scar tissue than is ideal……

I do both, but the majority of the time I hold the pin like a dart and jab it in.

To be a little more clear I jab it in fast to break the skin I don't just bury the whole needle in one motion

I used to jab, probably for the first five years of pinning, but started slowing down after that. For me, I feel that the tempo of needle insertion seems to match my plunger depression speed. Jabbing inevitably led to fast plunger depressions where it might be close to a nerve (or just a goofy spot) and I’d end up with annoying pip for a couple days. Or the occasional pin where the oil seems to attach directly to a nerve and slowly move to your lower back over a couple days 🤢 (pinning glutes of course). I switched to a slower insertion with gently increasing pressure, which helped alert me to nearby nerves or something that maybe felt like it was going to result in a sore muscle. Then I could just back out and move over a little without pushing oil. I’m now a fan of adding rotation to the needle while slowly increasing pressure until the skin opens up. It’s been very effective for me and absolutely pain free. I don’t think this method is for everyone as it requires a pretty steady hand though.

Remember the nes glove? I loved that when I was little.
This thing eluded me. We got NES for Christmas the year it was released, but never got the glove. All the kids at my school were too poor. Never got to try that thing, but I remember being fascinated seeing it on magazines and on tv.

I never had the glove, but I remember seeing the movie it first appeared in about the video game tournament.

Does anyone remember the name of that movie?
That’d be THE WIZARD (no need to look it up) with Fred Savage….

Crazy how it can send me down a rabbit hole of “this actor, that actor, went on to do such and such…”

Also watched a really good Nintendo documentary thing on Netflix a few months back….(I’ll try and remember the name)

Those video game documentaries are pretty awesome (and I'm not a gamer).

NES was awesome. I still have my original NES at my moms house, but it's not working properly, picture comes out blurry. I opened it and was supposed to try to fix it, but trying to repair electornics is such a pain in the ass.

Doom or Duke Nukem anybody?

Duke Nukem > Doom

But, Wolfenstein 3D was better than all of them. Quake was decent as well. I think Command & Conquer was my favorite.

Some specific games might be worth good money. At least some games were a few years back.

A lot of threads seem to end up people remeniscing lately, lol. And @GQdaLEGEND hasn't even taken a part.

If you have the original case to go with it it could sell up to like $400.

But there's specific ones unopened in the box and if they have the original price tag and everything on it you could pay $75K to 100 grand for it

Some of the TV's even recognize the activated input, if the TV is on when you start the console and switches the input automatically. Kids these days have no idea what it is to put effort to get something.
