Need help with paper cuts

Sometimes I think I'm the clumsiest person on the planet. If I get within a mile of a piece of paper, inevitably, I'll get a paper cut. And, those things hurt! Does anyone have a solution to take the pain out of a paper cut? It's not the same as a burn, so you can't put cream on it. And, if you try alcohol, it hurts too much. Any ideas that have worked for you?

Paper cuts are SO annoying! I haven't tried it myself but I've heard that plain, regular super-glue is a great solution for paper cuts. You're supposed to hold the cut closed and "seal" it with the super-glue. It helps the cut heal faster by keeping germs out better than a bandage could and you also can't get all those things, like salt, in the paper cut that make it sting.
