"The Replacements" is a classic!
But, back to the topic, that carnage looks painful!
Brucker: Your signature says that you "play with metal for a living". It appears that the metal was not in a playful mood that day! Ouch!
What dont kill, Leaves realy cool scar's
In a never ending search for the proper mix of dirt & rock !
I only have one person to blame for this idiotic adventure, and that's myself. I had just come back into the shop after being out in my lot looking for some used parts. Guess I didn't wipe my feet well enough. All I remember is pulling a stick of tube out of the bender and moving toward the fab table so I could test fit it. Then coming to on the ground, feeling like I had just broken my nose and lost some front teeth and realizing I was lying in a big pool of blood. Took a minute to figure out I hadn't done any real damage except the big gash in my forehead. After all is said and done, I believe I lost traction on the slippery epoxy covered floor because of my still wet shoes. And think I stuck the edge of my fab table, thus the "big metal object". Pretty sure I still have my right eye because I was wearing safety glasses as usual.
Yeah safety glasses are definitely great, I've had steel removed from both eyes twice now and yes I was wearing safety glasses or my safety goggles when I got it in my eyes. I still have a good size piece of steel stuck in my left index finger from a 14" miter saw blade exploding on my, my sunglasses saved my eyes that time.
Wow! Was not expecting this when I opened this thread! Glad your ok! I once did something similar to the bridge of my nose. I was able to patch it together with 2 butterfly enclosures. Can barely see the scar. I remember thinking there was a lot of blood though.
that hurts just to look at. Glad you're OK!!
It's been one week (7 days) since I decided to rearrange my face. I am VERY surprised at how fast I am healing up. Got the stitches removed last night. I still have some soreness around the area and in my nose. And there is still some bruising around my eyes and forehead, but no more open wound. I will have a decent scar but was already planning on it.
Thanks again for the well wishes and the much deserved mockery. Next time I will be sure to do what my wife asks of me the first time
That isn't bad at all, once it heals up it'll hardly be noticeable. Good excuse for that nose job you've been talking about getting for the last year though right? :P
Its definitely crazy how fast stuff heals sometimes. All things considered this could have gone a lot worse for ya. I think you were mocking yourself more then anyone, which is probably a good attitude to have about it.
