Back in ‘97/‘98 A school, pensacola Florida I could be in Lead or barracks support. Lead you ran 10-30 miles a day and or weight lifting/ gym, an hour hour of USMC history, out by 1300-1400. Barracks support was a 12 hour shift. In lead you picked up school 3 months earlier.

One day I was doing leg lifts and called to formation. Usually they would give us a heads up to stretch, this day they didn’t. My knee popped big time! Ran, I was up to 2400mg of ibuprofen a day just to stay in the lead program. I wanted to get to the fleet!

Knee bugs me sometimes still, but I tend to use the low kneeling position to cable, and usually sit cross legged while sitting on my couch.

A Marine is a rifleman first. A plumber is a contortionist first.

Faced with waiting for an ambulance inside a locked fence I decided to hop back over the fence to enable myself to get to the hospital quicker. By then I was almost completely passed out, my roommate helped me get in his truck and away to the hospital we went.

That one hurt.

I know we are probably all alike. I was the same way with an umbilical hernia. I let it go so many years until it was real bad. That and the fact it was impossible to see a doctor at a clinic if you hadn't one like many of us.. Only way was to wait in the emergency room for a couple of days. Yep wait time was between 24 and 36 hours. Not allowed to sleep on the floor or they'd kick you out and if you don't hear your name you too bad.

I was glad I took care of it eventually, I sneaked my way into a clinic the doctor rushed me to emergency surgery 2 weeks after. I feel so much better now.

That seems like one worth waiting for somebody to take a picture of you before you yank your leg off the spike.

Sweet Jesus.

So I am drilling with a holesaw and I had to angle it just right to get it through the right spot. I drill a pilot and my buddy is yelling directions of which way to lean. All of the sudden he stops yelling back. Then I see out the window he is walking to his van. Turns out he had decided it was a good idea to "guide" the end of the holesaw from below with his fingers.


To this day he still doesn't know what clicked in his head that told him it was a good idea. He isn't a stupid guy.


Maybe he has the "toxaplasma" infecting his brain!
