I just had to pause Foyle’s War to look up saline baths in the treatment of burns.

It’s a plot point in this episode, but mostly I thought it was cool.

I had an abrasion on my foot once that healed remarkably quickly after I waded into the Pacific. (That was way up north, though, where the water’s a good deal cleaner than it is here in LA.)
