    That's insane. But I do have a titanium plate in my leg, so that's kinda manly.

    Wow. :eek:
     
  5. I would have been crying even at the thought of riding a toboggan :eek:
     
  6. Dang, that does Ronnie Lott one better.

    At the end of the 1985 season in a game against the Cowboys, Ronnie Lott mangled his left pinky in a brutal collision with running back Timmy Newsome. Lott came out of the game briefly -- a game his team won to gain a wild-card berth in the NFC playoffs.

    The next week, Lott had his fingers taped so he could play -- in a loss to the Giants. Lott eventually chose to have the tip of his finger amputated and then went on to his third Pro Bowl season with the 49ers in yet another playoff appearance.

    Myownself, I have a 6" steel plate in my left shin from a motorcycle wreck in 1966 - just about lost the bottom half of the leg. Not a fun exercise. Can't say I recommend it to anyone.

    That's manly, but not as much as the guy who got trapped under a boulder and voluntarily cut off his own limb with a dull pocketknife.

    OMG ! I saw a show about that guy. He calmly talked about how he cut his arm off and saved himself. That is absolutely amazing. :rollno:

    Pales in comparison to the fisherman who was out on his boat alone, got his leg caught in the nets as he was winching them in and ended up having to cut his own leg off.

    What made this guy particularly tough was that he went on to collect the rest of his nets, piloted his boat back to the harbour, phoned his wife to say he'd be late home for dinner, then drove himself to the hospital.

    Now that's tough.

  20. A while back, I ran into a few of the crackheads from my last job. One of them was missing his arm, just above the elbow. He had gotten into a fight with a good friend of his, both drunk and probably on crack. His friend twisted his arm around behind his back and then twisted it around a second time :eek: Doing so, broke all the veins, arteries, tendons, etc. He said that when he tried to "unwind" his arm, he passed out from the pain. They ended up having to amputate his arm!!! I couldn't believe you could actually DO that to someones arm :rolleyes: Crazy Lakeland FL crackheads...............:rolleyes:
