If you let them know you are down they may just come back and take your beer or spare gas

Rob, also known as AkaRob here on ADV, just had his photo taken at the ER recently as well.. I'd let him post this but he was getting pinned back together today and may be on some sweet sweet pain killers for a few days... AkaRob is one of my team members for the RR and it will be his first RR.. So heal up well Rob, BobBob and any others that get injured before June!!

After reviewing the x-ray, I'd say that's fucked.

Mine was a bit more lame... I was machining a 200lb wedge for a wedge style valve and had it fall out of the chuck on to my finger. Had a flat finger at the time pain enough to puke but day 2 I have taken zero pain meds...it's like it never happened because of the lack of pain....just a fat bruised finger.

it looks like he mashed his index finger and has a fracture in the proximal phalange.
