So I was snowboarding at Liberty Mountain in Pennsilvania (woke up at 4 got there at 7) and it's about 5 in the evening. Im a pretty good snowboarder and I can go down black diamonds and stuff. So I'm tired since i've been boardin' for 10 hours with only a 30 min. lunch brake and I head for an intermediate slope just for the heck of it. So I'm goin down at a moderate speed since its not so steep (30 degree slope) and I come up to this huge pach of ice. i swerv around it easily. as im goin around it, its kinda hard to see since they didn't turn on the lights yet and the sun was goin down and the trees were casting a shadow and i didn't see a large pothole (bout .5 meters in diameter) so my board's nose dipped into the pothole and i flipped up did some flips in the air and fliped back down only to wiplash my arm so hard when it hit the ice it split my upper radial shaft in two and chipped off a piece of bone from my wrist. It flippin hurt.

So after the ski patrol at the top of the lift finished their Starbucks and cinnimon rolls they finally came down after 30 min of me laying there and hauled me down in a tabogan. Now what sucks about a tabogin is that the metal is a millimeter thin so when you're goin down and the guys pulling you at 20mph you feel every pebble and twig you go over.

So an hour later I get to the hospital. They tell me I have to get my bone set into place on monday (this happened on Friday) so I go there on Monday and they put me to sleep and stuff. So 10 hours later I wake up and it's nighttime! (I got there at 11:00am) and THEN they tell me they had to put a METAL BRACKET into my bone with SIX SCREWS because my muscle tention was too much cause when the doctor set it in place it popped back up. So much for being muscular...

So now I have a completely split in half forearm with a chipped off piece of bone on my wrist with a metal bracket with six screws in it with a cast from my knuckles up to my armpit becase of a stupid little POTHOLE!!!!

Oh and the first week after the day of my surgery i had to stay home because it hurt so much. (Pain level 8/10 with perscripion medicine)

Feel free to coment! biggrin

EDIT: Really? -6? I'm trying to ignore the ridiculousness of rating this down, but are you guys f*cking serious?

EDIT 2: 8? Are you FUCKINGG KIDDING? And months after the whole argument was completed? Really?

Don't think we're beating a dead horse?

Sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you get well as soon as possible. Good thing they put you to sleep though, I imagine.

P.S.
For the record - as undelicate as Atom put it, I agree that adding visible paragraphs would improve the overall experience of reading the post and encourage to read it in the first place. Just a piece of advice though.

yeah, im supposed to have the cast on for another 6 weeks. its gonna be a long time bfore i go boardin again. or basketball for that matter, i love basketball. I was #2 pick this year and last and now my team is losing all our games since im the best player on the team. (we came close to winning a couple times). we only one 1 out of 2 games before i broke my arm.

oh and u know what sucks? when i had my surgery, they put me in a ultra thick fiberglass cast afterwards. The cast i had on 3 weeks ago was not waterproof, so when i went to itch my skin, my fingernails hit something hard in the way. I tried using a stick/some butter knives to just shove it up the cast but it was too tight and i couldn't reach the itch. And if that doesn't seem to bad to you, try 5 hours of trying to ignore an itch thats on your full left arm. then come talk to me.

yeah, i just got a new, red, waterproof cast last thurs. now i can finally take showers without the extra itch of another bag on my arm! hooray! me

i woulda chose chinese water torture for a month straight over breaking my arm the way i did... if i had the choice.

Being less active must be bad, if you're used to physical activity...

And as for the itch - that's my nightmare connected with cast's. Never had one, but never could imagine how can you stand such a thing. Honestly. That sucks.

That sounds horrible. I've never broken a bone, so I think I'm fated to have a terrible accident where I break like all of them at once.

Enjoy the narcotics!

Our point is, you could have said something along the lines of:

"I know you broke your arm, but could you please type in paragraphs?"

Just saying "paragraphs" was a little rude.

Rude, but none the less true.

We've exhausted this discussion before. Punctuation and grammar, while not required, is encouraged and you'd be smart to use them correctly if you are expecting intelligent and informed responses.

Of course, maybe the responses you were looking for was "hey dude, That suckzz!!!LOLZ" If you were thats fine, but be prepared for some chastening when you decide to be lazy about your posts.

More to the point. I wasn't aware they had double black diamond runs back east...or at least real ones.

While it is certainly a big deal to try to make your posts well-typed, I would say poorly-typed posts are only really a problem when they obviously have no thought or effort put into them and make ridiculous overuse of text-talk/have pathetic spelling that could've been fixed in a few minutes with spell check.

No one's posts should be expected to be perfect, and I don't think that anyone should make a big deal out of a lack of paragraphs, however, I don't think Atom's post was nearly useless enough to be rated down.

FIRST OF ALL. I dont Rate Posts. I never pushed the red button, as much as I dislike your snotty-ness. Second of all WHO CARES ABOUT PARAGRAPHS, unless its a ridiculously long story which its not, then forget about it. Just because I say Forget about paragraphs ON A FORUM, THAT YOU SHOULDNT WORRY ABOUT PERFECT FRIGGING ENGLISH doesnt mean Im lazy at all, just means I dont whine as much as you.

How could anyone ever survive without Atom reading their posts wink . This topic kind of went haywire, which is a shame. Atom just said the simple word "Paragraph". Can we all just move on? I mean two pages and about %70 is on Atom. That's kind of dumb. Any way, back on topic.

That really sucks. I went snowboarding once in North Carolina. Let me tell ya, I had more fun doing that then I do surfing. Florida doesn't have any mountains or snow, so the only way to go snow boarding is to travel. I really wouldn't miss the beach all that much, I prefer the mountains any way. I've never broken anything more then a finger, so I don't know what a cast is like, and I can't imagin not doing something as fun as snowboarding for 6 weeks. sad Get well soon! biggrin

I'm still just intermediate and made the mistake of going into the slope in the woods once. Oddly enough, it was marked beginner with drawings of Pixar characters and everything, but the conditions and width (1-2m ish) of the slope made it so I couldn't actually brake efficiently. What followed was a few cartoon-worthy minutes of me just barely making it over jumps, bumps, holes, drops, turns and intersections while going super fast. I swear, at one point I jumped a good three meters while only on one ski, and landed into a turn without hitting the trees. No idea how I didn't horribly injure myself.

Oddly enough you come across as the whiny one here. You're making a way bigger deal of this than Atom is. Really though, take the advice and move on. I'll be honest and point out to you that I haven't read the whole first post because its so poorly punctuated. At the fear of sounding like a broken record I will also would wager there are many users who have skipped over it as well, without giving you a piece of advise.

Privileges like...telling someone to use paragraphs? How long do you have to be a member to acquire that one Atom?

No privelages like thinking you own the forums and you get to trash on whoever you want because they didnt have the greates puncuation, its not bad theres just not alot of spacing, no need to say anything.

Good. Lord.

Yes, paragraphs and punctuation are a good thing. Not vital, but definitely desirable. While Atom could have been more polite perhaps, he wasn't rude, and he had a valid point. Which, it is worth noting, futurefilmmaker heeded by editing his original post. If paragraphs weren't a big deal to him, they shouldn't be such a big deal to the rest of you.

However, paragraphs and punctuation have NOTHING to do with snowboarding or breaking limbs. Please stay on topic. No more comments about grammar, either way. Thank you.

Nearly everyone I know that snowboards has broken some bone doing it. I'm one of the exceptions, but I have broken my arm before (roller skating), and I know how painful it is. Though mine wasn't as bad as yours; I had no metal implanted in my arm. I hope all goes well for you during your recovery.

Ouch! Like Aculag I've never broken a bone, so I'm also anticipating some kind of mammoth bone-breaking incident at some point in my future, to make up for lost time. Same goes for my teeth, which so far I haven't had removed/filled/drilled/etc.

Aculag - maybe we should deliberately just go and break a finger or something, to get it over with?

Anyway, hope you recover fully and quickly, futurefilmmaker!

(and on the paragraph debate: there is no debate. There's nothing to discuss here, people. Paragraphs are crucially important to effective communication. If you want people to take the time to read your stuff, you have to take the time to write it. End of story)

Ouch! when I read the topic title and didn't read who was the author I actually assumed it was Ricanjoe I think it was in another off his silly wrestling accidents.

However I myself have never been Snowboarding/skining and I have never broken a bone either. But it really does sound painful, you thought about dressing in layers of bubblewrap? biggrin

Get well soon though!

Guy's,
He broke his freaking arm. Stop crying about the damned paragraphs.
He's gotta be in alot of pain.
If I was in his condition, the last thing I would be thinking about is paragraphs.
He got hurt really bad and it could've been way worse, as in he could be dead right now. frown
His post clearly states that he was hurt so you know what it's about.
If you don't want to read it based on that then don't.
He doesn't need any 1st grade jargon that will make him feel any worse.
I'm not gonna say any names but...
to the ones with your rude little comments and one liners,
I don't know where you're from but where I'm from, we learned this little thing called manners.
If you invest the same time that you put into your rude ways you might actually get somewhere.

Futerfilmaker,
Dude that really sucks about you getting hurt.
I hope you get and feel better soon.
I broke my left ankle when I used to skate as a kid.
OOOOUUUUCCCH!!!
My buddies told me that it was just sprained.
Like a tard I believed them.
I didn't find out it had been broken till about four months later when I actually sprained my ankle and went to the hospital. Ha. biggrin

In general I have not broken any bones in my body, but I am 13! There are people in my school (the dumb ones) who have broken lots of bones in their body.

Yes! *cheers* I was all excited and ready to invade the topic with you, preparing myself to hit that posting button quite some times and all. You can imagine my disappointment. XD

Broken bone is quite a shame, filmmaker! And the worst part is that you can only use one hand to type, hence extreme slowness and frustration. sad

Paragraphs: Dare I say, this topic is quite entertaining, but in a very painful way...

Psh, yeah, how dumb do you have to be to break a bone? rolleyes
I think the logic is rather that if you're stupid, you're definitely going to break a few bones. Take er-no, for example, he's broken lots of bones!

I know what he meant. smile
I was subtly attempting to re-direct the public interpretation of his sentence to imply that he was making fun of futurefilmmaker.

Ow, sounds disturbing and kinda cool.

Does it [your arm] hurt of feel stiff anymore? Or do you have it back 100%?

Hey guys,

Sorry to reply to such an old topic, but I didn't want to make a whole new forum topic just for one thing. Anyways, I broke (or shattered) my wrist the other day.

The story goes like this:
I was skydiving out in the mid-west this weekend (my first time) and my parachutte got stuck in a tree and my arm slammed into the branch. Nah, just kidding. smile

What really happened:I was working on my car in the driveway and I took a step backwards and my flip flop got caught on one of my dog's leashes. I then proceeded to fall backqards and caught myself using my left arm. The doctor said that the wrist is completely busted and that it was similar to cruching a coke or similar soda can. Ouch. Yeah, not fun. Needless to say, it is going to take me a long time to finish my current movie projects (3 at prenset time) as it is more time consuming with only one good arm.

P.S.I did get a cool scar on my right arm (and luckily my dominant one)

But who let them out? Who let the dogs out? Who, who, who, who?

So sorry for that, I couldn't resist.

EDIT: (Forgot to put this in here, was late last night)

I'm really sorry to hear about your wrist DVStudio. Getting by with one arm for a time must be hard. On the up side you'll really appreciate having two when you get it back smile

Lol.
Dude, that has got to hurt smashing yr wrist. The one good part would be a huge scar. I don't know why, but I would really like it. A scar, not breaking my wrist.

I've broken a few small bones, like some fingers. Once I broke a bone in my foot taking a running jump off my roof. Hurt like blazes, but for some reason only one foot really hurt for more than a couple minutes. Cause it was broken. Now what would have been really bad was if I had landed on the bricks five feet away. twisted

For all the ailments, conditions, and numerous diseases I've either contracted or had innate in all my years of life- I've never ever broken a bone.

I've cut my pinky finger clean off, ripping out the flesh, tissue, and nerve-endings- but the bone remained in-tact. I can only imagine the pain of breaking and mending a bone. Just the thought, like really thinking about it, makes me cringe considerably.

I've broken most of my body.

Nose three times, arms, wrist, dent in shin bone, dent in skull, shattered kneecap, broken foot, broken ankle, broken toes. Tore a quad muscle (wow that one hurt). Broke three ribs. Unable to walk for 7 months in total.

Yeah, getting injured isn't too fun. It's not too fun! smile

Sorry to hear about your breakages!

Never broken a bone either, though I've been in several car crashes - hey I'm Unbreakable! (and er-no is Samuel L Jackson)

I have been fortunate enough not to break anything. I am very grateful. To what Atom said, I think I might prefer to break a finger than to cut it off like that. Dunno. I play the piano so either way I would freak.

In any case I wish you all the best (especially you er-no, you seem to need it).

So Atom, were the doctors able to fix your finger? That's crazy.

I've never broken a bone either, but I have had a horrible disease/illness.

Heh, yeah. I was opening a spring-action foldable stroller and the support collumn that slides down and locks into place squished against my pinky; mangling the middle of the top portion of it. Like an idiot, and because I was 9 and by myself, I tried to pull the collum back and slide out my finger, but all this did was peel back everything and slide the flesh/tissue off of the bone like taking off a glove.

It all held on by a few stringy nerves, though, and the ER sewed the sleeve of it all back onto my hand. I don't have any feeling in the tip of the finger anymore and the hand spasms out ever once in a while- but pretty much I had a clean, painless recovery considering how painful/morbid it looked and probably sounds. I can barely see where it was reattached these days. Of course, it's also been 10 years, so... smile

My God, that's awful. surprised

I don't even know what to say.

Sometimes I wonder why pain is so customizable. You can hurt yourself/die in almost any way thinkable. Couldn't the universe be a bit more kid-friendly?

I have to stop writing, my pinky went numb after reading your post Atom. neutral

Same:P I'm the kind of guy who can handle the pain as long as I don't have to look at the wound. At least I don't faint at the sight of blood. I can stay conscious which is something. In fact when I think about it, hearing about these things normally affects me worse than actually seeing it. I have an overactive imagination.
