I had to pick the one that involved smashing my pinky finger on my right hand with a hammer by accident. I can very luckily hold my flightstick and fly, but dammit!
Luckily, it doesn't hurt too much. I was unsuccessful at burning a hole through the nail with a nail (as in wood-nail) or sewing needle. So.....

Take it easy on me guys, I'll be flying without a nail on my right pinky finger for the next 3-4 months. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif And that's really going to be a pain in the butt, even if it doesn't hurt much now, it will hurt later!)

Aren't I just so lucky? Well, I guess I could be unluckier. When my Dad had this problem, he completely smashed the nail and embedded some of it in the skin beneath it.

Well,

Once upon a time, a young boy, dropped a heavy droor on his big toa.

This caused excrusiating pain, and the pain just kept getting worse as the night went on. I actualy had to go the doctor. lol. He put a hole in the toa nail so the fluid would drain out. This greatly releaved the pain in Maple's toa.

The end.



I actualy managed to lose the nail in my other toa as well. However, I can't remember it too well...thats proubly a good thing.



I'm left handed.

Don't you even say, "I new it, I just new Maple was a lefty".

LoL, I slammed a gash into my right index finger AND made another huge cut on my right index finger joint using a hammer against sheet metal. The skin on the joint made a little trap door through which you could see the bone. It was pretty neat, save for the fact that it bled like crazy and apparently I lost consciousness for two seconds or so because of blood loss.

If it hasn't been too long since ya did it, for the rest of the night keep it on ice and take 600mg of motrin (UNLESS you have stomach problems) every 6 hrs. Tomorrow continue the motrin and do the ice for about 45min, than heat for 10-15minutes. Try to do the ice/heat for at least all day and evening tommorow. Stay away from aspirin (anticlotting will swell more).

Thx, I'll try to do that, but I don't have that much access to medicine in school, unfortunately. I'm just gonna have to deal with it again. Best part is, it's back to working on the set for the play again tomorrow. I'm not gonna let this stop me, I'll hammer with my other hand. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you'd have smacked it hard enough to make the goo shoot out the end of your finger, it wouldn't hurt near as much now. LMAO!!!

I learned that the hard way by spanking my left thumb with a 22oz framing hammer one afternoon. Oh and when you manage that trick, your thumb never quite looks the same again.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Oh and if gets to hurting TOO bad, AMPUTATE!! J/K http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

You haven't lived until you've dropped 3/4inch tongue and groove flooring plywood on your toes, edge on, from about 4 feet up

I did that a few years ago wearing some worn out thin sneakers. Didn't hurt a bit, but I lost many toenails for that summer.

Lmao, "never quite looks the same".



I had a similer thought when I smashed into the back end of a parked truck head first while riding my bike. This was when I was like twelve years old.


How, you are thinking?

I was looking down at the time.

Why was I looking down?

I have no friggen clue.


Man, I just about nocked myself out. I hit that truck so hard that I couldn't even walk straight. My whole body was sore from head to toe.

What pissed me off, was that me dad was almost luaghing his *** off.

Soak finger in hot water, and with epsom salts dissolved in if you wish, as much as you can. As water cools, swish finger around this will keep the water that gets cooled by your finger circulated away from the finger and constantly replaced with warmer water.

Early this year I stubbed my toe really bad-- probably broke it some--running to catch the beginning of 5AM Cleopatra on the USA StarGate Channel. Hobbled for weeks. Had to take a job cleaning condos so I could hop around in socks working. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Hot water soaking helps alot.

Also keep the damaged finger as clean as possible. Once had a huge gash in elbow 1/2 inch deep. I got the cut on the edge of a brutally filthy restaurant dumpster. Elbow gash is bad cos everytime you bend your arm you open the wound. No problem. Hot water applied to elbow with rag, keeping wound clean, and keeping the old skin flap on it and all covered with bandaid healed it totally with absolutely no pain no swelling in...two weeks. Always keep it covered protected though--same with finger. Don't let dirt in or it gets infected and red.

Just for fun, run a chainsaw into your hand. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I was about 45' up in a cherry picker taking the top off a tree with a one handed climbing chainsaw. The wind hit, something happened, and the next thing I know the saw is bouncing across the fat part under my left thumb.

This was the culprit!

I'm not medically qualified and have not heard of motrin ,but i would be careful of taking anything without seeing a doctor first.

I wish a speedy recovery to u Boosher...Didnt your mom tell U that sewing was dangerous?

Be glad it wasnt a toenail missing instead.
I "accidentally" lost one on a big toe and had to walk through a swedish winter without a shoe on that foot. Pretty daunting if dont have other means than progressing to work on foot, be sure, and then there is the constant staring and questioning...and all the little kiddies pointing and saying; Look mama! That dude looks funny. Why does he walk like that?

Think about that for a while.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Mate, if you could not pierce it to let it drain you should go right away to the doctor and let him do it for you. Otherwise you'll have to go through extraction of your nail which, believe you me, is not nice.

I have made that mistake, don't let it happen to you.

I hope it's not too late.

ROFLMAO! That's great stuff!

You guys must be some clumsy SOB's. I cant remember ever injuring myself, but I have injured others... I snapped off a 4 foot prybar once and the thing flew out of my hand and impailed a buddy of mine in the stomach.

That was kinda funny.

It didnt kill him, so we still laugh about it today.

I slammed the same guys hand in a car door once when we were removing a transmission. He was under the car, I was on top disconnecting the linkarge. He said something from under the car, so I got out and closed the door to find out what he was saying. His hand was wrapped arounf the door frame at the floor of the car and it got smashed when I closed it. oops...

Well, as it turns out he was telling me to make sure I didnt close the door because he had his hand there. ROFL! We laugh about that too.

Moral of the story? If you hurt a friend badly enough, he will be your buddy for the rest of his life.

I can see you are dangerous. My father has kept repeating to me for 30 years now "Hands always behind the tool" and he's right. But I think he should add "and keep behind Fehler"

Fehlar,

Clumsy?

Clumsy!!!

Tree killing is THE most dangerous profession. Here in Quebec our CSST rates (employee accident insurance from the government) is 26% of our pay! The guys who wash windows 50 floors up pay half that.

Isn't a question of clumsy, it's simply damn hard and dangerous work. Our specialty is high risk takedowns. Broken trees, trees over houses and wires and what have you. And we're very good at it.

I invite you to spend a day in my boots anytime.
