    This smarted a bit. Reaching down in the dark my nail hit the door frame. Ow! Literally went so deep it went past the end of my nail and up into my finger. What a rude awakening at midnight! 659DB7E0-DFC9-4498-88A7-2DD5D5076A78.jpeg 491325AA-145C-4B36-A2F4-ADD81579808E.jpeg

  10. I’m sorry that happened. Similar has happened to me. On the plus side, i just need to look at that photo and i can stick to a diet of never eating again. Thats the power of that photo.

    You know what’s weird? There was virtually no blood. And now this morning no pain, unless I push on it, yes I tired no I don’t know why. I have done similar before that bled like a stuck pig! It seems wrong that that much immediate pain had no blood. Makes me feel a bit cheated!

    it’s the came hand that had a giant wood check go through my palm! That was about 36 years ago though the scar is almost gone. That one hurt also and bled a lot. Much more gratifying. I was in the Marines unloading 2x4 and the guy in the other side didn’t wait for me to hand one to him he grabbed it and pulled before I let go. I jumped off the truck and was going to knock him off his feet but when he saw all the blood he passed out! How the heck can you be a Marine and pass out at the sight of blood! I left him laying there and told the Sgt he could wake him. Oh the things we can remember in the middle of the night.

    Without mentioning any names, didn’t that used to be a torture technique? Looks like it still is.

    After seeing this thread I can't believe what just happened. I was using a nail gun this morning to put some trim around an outdoor post and, you guessed it, I tried to staple my left index finger to the post. Fortunately it's not too bad except it's my fretting hand so it'll interfere with my practice for a bit as it's hard to bend. Oh well, guess I need a break for a while anyway.
