Boycotting seems to be bringing annoyance and frustration to everyone here. Why? idk, you're saving mula!

Anyways, I love really cool stories and learning things only few know and really interesting facts on uncommon topics. I'm not nearly the most insightful man here and I know many who are. Can we start up some really fun and great conversations that don't normally partake on this forum? Go ahead, brag if you want! Show off a past experience that is really awesome to share. Strut your knowledge, wow us (particularly me, lol). What awesome things(s) do you have to share?

Me, I'll think of something to add later. You're turn!

Modern War Related posts are accepted as well, of course. This is in the General section so that not every thread is complaint-related.

When I was a newborn, my parents took all of us(youngest of three kids) on a hike up a mountain where my father was stationed in the military to have a picnic. After they were done they gathered everything up and hiked back to the car. It wasn't until then that they realized they forgot me on top of the picnic table up the mountain.

We had a trauma patient come in with an "amputated" foot once and the attending told the resident to put it in a bag so they could go up to surgery and the noob resident went and stuck it in a patient belonging bag ( they are clear/ see thru). Yeah, no... Lets not freak everyone out.. Leave a trail of vasovagaled people through the hallways :)

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, I downloaded this game called Modern War.
I started to build a fake army, and this guy said, "Pssst, come here kid."
I said, "What, mister?"
He said, "Wanna buy some gold?"
I said, "Real gold, mister?"
He said, "Yeah, kid, real gold. Is that your dad's credit card?"
I said, "I think so, mister."
He said, "Hand it to me, kid."
I said, "Should I, mister?"
He said, "Yeah, its okay, kid."
So, I gave it to him and he sold me these vaults of gold.
But, I didn't see nothing but some numbers in my game.
I said, "Hey, mister, where's my gold?"
He said, "Sonny, its right up there, with your boosts."
I said, "What boosts, mister?"
He says, "Why them invisible boosts, kid. Is you slow or something, kid? This is special gold, more valuable than real gold, its invisible gold."
I said, "WOW, mister, that's really cool! And, yeah, mister I ain't never been too smart. Why even pa done tells me I is slow."
He says, "Yeah kid, now go away."
I ain't never seed that dude never again.
I still ain't seed them boosts either, not that invisible gold.
And that game, it don't be work so good no more, neither.
Yeah, that was kinda interesting, right?

Cassettes, wow, you really are showing your age. I can't say eight tracks, though I was there in their heyday, try 78s, 33s, and there was one more number I forget now. I know many of you have no idea what I'm speaking about. I do remember my first CD player though. Payed 1200 way back in the early 80s. I have hundreds of digital songs today, but sadly, i just dont listen to music like i used to. my life seems to leave little time for it. when i do i feel sad for time lost when i hear the ones from my era. Or before that I bought my first video game with my lawn mowing and paper route money( I know, you don't know what that is either) I bought it at sears for 600 in the mid 70s. It was a big hit at the time. What a wonderful game, for a about 15 min at least. The name, pong.

I bought an IBM PS2 personal computer in 1989 for $2,500 (software and dot matrix printer included). It is in my son's room now and it still works. Sort of.

Oh, and the first album I ever bought with my own money (vinyl, 33 rpm) was "Snoopy vs the Red Baron" by The Royal Guardsmen. I wish I still had THAT because it would probably provide more entertainment than that PS2.

He had a list of clients around town that he took care of well into his late 70's and 80's before he passed away. I also had a paper route. Turns out I have liked money since being a little boy! My grandfather used to pay me a nickel to pick up all the cigarette butts laying in his grass. So he could mow it, of course!

A guy I work with was riding his Harley down the interstate when a drunk hit him from behind. He flew over the truck, nearly landing in the bed, and landed in the middle of the highway. No one ran over him and he walked away battered and bruised. No broken bones. Unbelievable.

A few months later he was riding his Harley home and when he stopped to pick up his mail, he broke his ankle.

Now you can't tell me God doesn't have a sense of humor.

Had my wind pipe crushed by a drunk when I was 10. Never saw him again went I finally was able to point him out to my dad. I still don't ask about it.

Been shot at more times than I care for (never hit). One is enough for anyone and past that you get funny about it and thank god the morons never were able to reload.

Stabbed twice. They didn't pay me enough for that job and I call BS on chicks dig scars. At least if you are going to stick someone has the damn decency to have a sharp non serrated blade. It won't have that 3rd world country surgery look.

Got gangrene in a surf accident in Mexico. Almost lost my leg from the knee down...love 28 gauge needles and antibiotics in the ass. When they tell you it will hurt...don't play it off as a joke.

Was paralyzed for 12 days in a surf accident in CA. No more 15 ft waves for me at low tide. Had speech therapy for 3 months just to say colors again. I stuttered like no tomorrow after that one.

Fell on my head when I was five hanging upside down from a tree branch that broke. A brick decided to break my fall. It took two doctors, three nurses, and my dad to hold me down for stitches. My brothers threw a pair of the old style grass trimers( basically a big pair of scissors) at me, stabbed me in the leg ( he was aiming for my head), and I continued working until he came back out with my dad claiming I had hit him first. Needed a large number of stitches( see previous about how many it took to hold me down, I was 15 this time) when I came home from getting the stitches I commenced to educating my brother on the dangers of his actions with my fists, while my dad attempted to pull me off. Needless to say the stitches had to be redone.not to out do some of the others I've read here, just a few of my battle scars from my youth. Surprisingly, I suffered more injuries then , then I did serving in the army for ten years.
