let's compare our scars!
« on: January 13, 2015, 10:28:51 PM »
any of you have any cool scars?  people tell me they like my scars but i don't think they are a big deal since i have had them for so long.  i have a 7 inch long by maybe a thumb width long scar on my back and two half dollar size "holes" on my side from multiple lung surgeries.  anyone have any big ones and what from?

When I was 8 years old I was attacked by a German Shepard, it bit my face. It healed pretty good but I have a big vein that pops out if I crunch up my face that travels across my nose in a diagonal direction.

All I remember is vomiting blood and being in hospital loads.

vomiting blood

In case this made no sense, I basically swallowed so much blood that it came back up.

Do emotional scars count?  Haha. 

I'd say I got a little warped by college if that counts.

richard dreyfuss

just kidding.  he's just an extra.



2:17 my dad is the guy in the red shorts and my uncle is in the blue shorts.  he's in another scene too i just couldn't find it.  sorry for the quality but i couldn't find a better one.  i grew up in massachusetts and i guess my dad and uncle were around the set when they were filming it and they asked if anyone wanted to be in it for the beach scenes. martha's vineyard i think?  he has one of the scenes that he's in framed loL.  my aunt gave it to him as a joke gift. still kind of cool.

i remember him telling me that in one scene he had to knock this old guy over and they had to keep shooting the scene over and over again and he felt bad.  i guess he was told to hit the guy pretty hard to make it real.

tympanoplasty?  is that when they use tampons to stop the bleeding?

You mock me!!

tympano plasty. Tympanic membrane=ear drum in the ear. Plasty surgery which involves molding or grafting. In this case, a graft is made from material such as ear cartilage. Then they cut behind your ear, around your skull, and fold the outer ear back, so that access to the ear drum is simple, avoiding the ear canal. It's quite painful.

I have an 8 inch scar on my right knee after an operation.

My muscle decided it could not cope with a 300 kilo squat attempt.

How it was and as it should be. I'm not a fan of the gear many elites use now. Re totals are impressive, but still . 
Not so strange to pull more. Some people are better proportioned for that .  I tend to be as well.  I always likes pulling more anyways :)

Glad they were able to put you back together!

You should probably be advised that in the UK and Australian versions of English that has somewhat different meanings.

In the UK it involves "birds", and in Australia it is generally the result of one's failure in the UK sense.

Correction
Pulling = hip dominant motion involving hamstrings and back muscles w assistance from biceps ...
Actually that could be misconstrued in a pretty awful way a well.

Pulling =dead lift .  Using deads for short from now on .
