    Drive train + gears + finger = afternoon at Mt. Auburn Hospital.

    Pain.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    OOF!

    I got nipped once and it took 3 weeks to heal. How bad did you get it?

    Oh no!! I did the same thing on Friday! Now I have 3 stitches, no fingernail and a crushed bone to show for it. But I did finish the bike I was working on. Heal up soon, and fuck drivetrain injuries >.<http://petermaxfield.blogspot.com/

    I did this once in 2004, came very close to losing the tip of my finger, but i was held on by a flap of skin. I could see my bone, it was more interesting than painful, at least at first, it really didn't hurt until 5 minutes later. I drove myself to the ER after washing it off, and bandaging it. I lost a lot of blood but was still able to drive home.

    i think the worst part is trying to scrub off the grease and dirt that gets caught inbetween flesh, skin and bones.

    yowza!Must be awful, being so fluffy.

    So I found today that not only did I sever the nail in half, but also the BONE. Nice. They would (should) have been able to figure that out 2 weeks ago when I went to the ER, IF they had actually done an X-ray then. Wingnuts. Don't go to Mt. Auburn Hospital.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    Hospitals r dum. I had been out of the hospital for 3 days, until they call and tell me that only on my 3rd CAT scan did it turn out that bits of glass were still in my head. My parents took a look through my hair where I was injured and it turns out you could see pieces shining in the light. They couldn't see that the first 2 times they did the test?

    yea some places are full of dipshits, it took a hospital 6 months to tell my brother he fractured his ankle rather than just sprained itsomebody turn the lights off on this place already.
