On the gas note....This guy had some jacka$$ run gas lines in his garage for a heater and stuff. Well the idiot ran them tight to the inside of the roof. Then a couple months later, the homeowner and his buddy who does roofing reroofed his garage with the longest nails they could find. Tons of holes in the wardflex. Later that night when it got nippy the heater fired up. The roof landed two doors over and the garage doors blew off and over the house accross the street and it another house and car.


I had a very heavy(>200lbs) manhole cover fall over on my big toe a couple months back. Broke the tip off the toe bone. The nail finally fell off a couple weeks ago.


I used to unload the truck two times a week by myself at an old job. I also weighed 300lbs at the time so my back got messed up good.


When I was a kid I would dig holes for fun. The start of my back problems.


And of course at least once a week I go to wash my hands and find some cut I didn't know about where the skin was only being held on by dirt, rust, toilet wax, pvc glue, whatever.

I walked into some ductwork one day in a basement with my forehead so hard I am pretty sure I got mildly concussed. I think we have all done something like that. Thankfully I haven't hit any steel pipes as hard as I hit that ductwork.


A lot of the houses around here have old train rails as cross beams. They are dark and blend in with the cob webbed ceiling sometimes. Those are just so much fun to walk into.

That reminds me of the time I bent down to pick something up and as I was getting back up I managed to hit my head straight up on the bottom of the little door on the electrical panel. I had blood running down my face and went to the ER but by that time it had stopped bleeding but I must have scared a few people with blood all over my face.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the qualifications to be a plumber.

Maybe we should request hand pictures from potential new members.

I broke my elbow skateboarding a ditch when I was about 20, I still have pain now and then and I can only straighten it about 80%.

Whenever I stand up from sitting or laying down my heel hurts and I walk with a limp for 3-5 minutes then I’m fine.

My neck hurts for about 3 days once every couple months. I don’t know if I slept wrong or if that’s what happens with age.

I’m 46 now, I was telling my wife that getting older you just have these pains and think “huh, I wonder when that will go away”. Sometimes they linger and then all of a sudden their gone. I’ve been dealing with the heel issue for 6-9 months now. I don’t go to the doctor, I’m a self healer.

- Cut my hand wide open with a 4" hole saw
- Tore my ACL (1x), strained MCL (3x), screwed up my hip flexor all playing goalie in ice hockey
- Came as close as I ever have to dying on a scuba dive...no pulse/breathing/etc. Scary stuff!!

Customers always warn me, watch your head! I respond with don’t worry my head will find it! Seems like I’m constantly picking scabs out of my hair.

Couple of weeks ago my wife made me go to some epsome salt float thereopy ... burned like heck!

Master says it’s a sign of retardation.

You'll need custom orthopedic foot insoles and I wear Jb goodhue bionic boots.

The only boots I can wear combined with insole to alleviate heel spurs. If you look closely they have a foam layer. It took over 8 years before I started to feel better. I have shoes on all the time in the house. The pain was so bad I almost quit my job each day.

You’re probably right, but I’m an idiot. I just deal with it. Maybe I’ll look into it. Four years down the road I’ll probably still be saying “huh, my heel hurts”
