Some bastard blew ash in my eye. Nigh on took his head off, (he's) still alive but certainly in a lot of pain. Anyway, does anyone know how to get it out? Washed it a few times but it's still itchy as hell. Do you just have to wait until the eye cycles tears through? Cause I don't exactly get watery eyes.

Let time pass a little bit. Many people have had the same problem and are still fine now. Their eyes aren't really destroyed or something.

By the way: Eat carrots.

Washing it should remove most of the ash, the irritation will remain for a while though. If it doesn't get better let a doctor check it out or (if you're lazy like me) just ask for advice in a (good) pharmacy.

Why would this dude blow ash in your eye anyway?

You obviously don't know about nem-nem's escapades at the pub :)

Hope you clotheslined the fucker.

computernerd: if he's in a pub, he couldn't have been smoking.

I'd go to a doctor for it. When we had the bathroom done, the builders had to tear down some old tiles; one got a load of dust in his eye and didn't get it checked out; went into hospital a week later and they told him 2 more days and he'd have lost his eye.

Thanks folks. It has eased back after about three hours. I'll get a doctor to give me the line and verse but it's not itching anymore.

MrFancypants;5398868Why would this dude blow ash in your eye anyway?

It's freshers' week. The week where guys who've just left school and joined university go drinking; you're bound to get some tossers who've been protected from their actions.

He said it was 120% proof, I said it I was fairly sure it was a hundred, he told me to fuck off, I told him to ease back a bit. You know how it goes. He was playing with the the ashtray went for a slap and I stepped off to the side, nailed him upside the jaw and caught the edge of the ash in the eye. Rest of my friends jumped up but it was over by then.

Retrospectively I should just have stayed silent but when you meet new people and you're feeling each other out it's hard to tell how paranoid you should be. Too paranoid and you end up nailing some innocent civy, too little and you get knocked about. The latter's probably better than the former if you've got your mates with you to make sure it doesn't go beyond the first few punches so I tend to err on the side of being nice.

Few drinks down the line we'll probably think nothing of it; either that or I'll get a couple of mates and talk to him when he's likely to be sober.

One guy I used to know back in first year was so messed up he nailed those little nets full of oranges and onions and crap you get to the ceiling of his rooms in halls. Took a swing at the wrong person so we told the administration. He essentially got himself thrown out of uni. :lulz:

People who are too thick to take it to heart always have some problem you can use.

Freshman week seems to be way more exciting where you are. Here the new students generally just get very drunk and obstruct traffic.

Serves this one right that you gave him a beating though, punching people with ashtrays isn't very considerate.

I saw you more as an intellectual smart talk guy. Never thought you'd come into such situation lol =p. So, did the guy go KO ?!

120% proof

He could've meant 120 proof. 60%.

You would've been wrong to correct him to "100% proof" as that makes no sense (to be fair neither did his original statement).

Since you're from Scotland I'm assuming you stayed within the UK for University, hence my guess would be either a) 80 proof b) 120 proof given that 40 and 60 percent abv is quite common. 50% abv obviously exists, but (in general) is less common (usually whiskies IIRC).

In all honesty you should've just left it when he told you to fuck off; should've been obvious that someone who blows up at a minor suggestion/correction like that would get angry at being "faced up" to.

And in retrospect, a word-to-the-wise: guys drinking and boasting about "120%/proof/" don't like to be corrected as they're obviously show-boating for people around. Especially on fresher's week where many people try to reinvent themselves as "cool" or simply cut out their place in the group. Though I thought you would've known this going in, so maybe you were just looking for a fight? :)

In any case, for the ash-in-eye problem I would recommend going to a local boots and picking up some eye-cleanser if it doesn't calm down in the first 24 hours.
