And the winner is...Jerry Doe!I was wondering how messed up we all are. I have broken a few bones in my time. I am 60 years old now and osteoarthritis is kicking in. How many bones have you broke? If you broke same bone twice that counts as 2. Here is mine:
Broke 3 times.
1 -Playing rugby in England.
2 -Hit a tree face first, trying to make a Royal Enfield 250cc do things its not designed to do.
3 -Defending myself I had to take broke nose.
1 -4 ribs on left side, tripped on dog toy and crashed into a pine coffee table. Vino related.
2 -2 ribs on right from Royal Enfield tree accident.
1 - Smashed first finger to bits and broke it, when metal boat hatch fell on it.
2 - Second finger stamped on with rugby boot and metal stud broke it.
3 - Second finger defending myself (pub fight).
1 - Thumb, closed in hinge of a car door.
2 - First finger got caught in Suzuki chain and chopped the end off.
3 - Second finger got caught in Suzuki chain and chopped the end off.
4 - Thumb, smashed with club hammer while getting wheel bearings out (missed).
1 - Hit Ford Capri at high speed while riding 750 Commando. Broke vertebrae.
1 - Broke it during 750 Commando accident.
2 - Broke it again, was swept across a sailboat (130 ft) by a huge sail and smashed it to bits on a metal thing.
1 - Smashed by a hard hockey ball
2 - Jumping ditch on a Yamaha DT 175, landed wrong. Compound break.
3 - Carrying a baby a missed a step and had to do a rapid twist, compound break.
4 - on the piss related, uneven pavement.
19 breaks total, possibly more.
I think that's all the bones I broke. Arthritis is worst in my back and ankle.
What are you all taking and doing to ease the arthritis? I try not to take anything, but every now and then take over the counter pain meds. I go to acupuncture and it really helps.
I thought this would be an interesting topic. Post your bone breaking story. I think Yves will win maybe?
