Okay, now how many members have pulled out the old Salt and Ice trick? Pour some salt on somebody's arm, then hold an ice cube on top of it and push
down. For those of you that have, you realize that this causes the skin to sink in, but it will later rise back up (and very quickly). But are there
any dangerous side effects to this? Could this backfire on someone and actually cause them real pain? Or is this nothing more than a cool scientific
trick involving chemical reactions?
If left on for too long, it can cause nasty "burns". It's hard to tell how long is too long when doing it, and you don't immediately know the
extent of damage that has been caused. If not careful, you are risking skin, tissue, and nerve damage, permanent scarring, potential infections, and
all that good stuff.
