To save myself the trouble of typing out what happened when I jacked up my arm with said jacked up arm I'm just going to paste what I put on my facebook page.

"The following took place between the hours of eight o'clock and nine o'clock, PM." *Doop doop. Doop doop.*

SO, I was out at the Adair Disc Golf Course practicing my drives and while picking up my discs I noticed the phenomenally smooth pavement of the new parking lot and thought "WOW that would make a great surface to drive from!". I neglected to consider the shoes I was wearing, track shoes in fact, the soles of which are also phenomenally smooth (like the parking lot) and also very hard (again, like the parking lot). Perfect for driving from the appropriate Driving Pad which is the same material as your typical running track, not so perfect for a paved parking lot, apparently. I whang a disc out there extra hard since I was driving into a slight cross wind, my feet go in some crazy direction I can't recall. Saying they went in 'some direction' is assuming they went in the same direction which I doubt. As I came down on both hands, my left elbow emits an audible 'pop'. I have broken a lot of bones and torn several different parts of several different joints and the sensation that followed can only vaguely be put into words using the term "You're screwed". And I skinned up my knee.

Yeah I got it checked out, it's broken. I see the surgeon in a week. However, I spent last night in Portland at a BBQ with friends who actually let a man on a streak such as this light the Mortars and Roman Candles (with one arm)!! Trusting friends I have. Right in the middle of a park in downtown Portland haha *BOOM*!! Good times! :lol::lol::lol:

Good god! I wouldn't let you near a cigarette lighter unsupervised, much less let you light explosives!!!! That's sooo a recipe for disaster. If you do it again, make sure video is rolling, you could end up on one of those shows loaded with stupid accident clips :) make some moneys lol

you're welcome for the free e-eval lol

Yeah but you seem to be the accident prone type. So keep the video rolling.


I realize I'm not one to talk about accident proneness but your luck Is worse than mine, so it's my duty to chime in
