Zeus Modding Gone Wrong -Warning- Stitches!
« on: April 18, 2005, 08:03:27 PM »
Last Friday, I was moving a piece of farm machinery to a sale, and on the way had a bit of a mechanical failure.  Fortunately, I had a couple of sharp objects, and not much for brains.  With a slip of the stick, I tore into a couple of my fingers, nicking the tendon on one of them, and cutting into the base of my finger nail on the other.  8 stitches later, I've been modded!

I'm hoping to post up a little video when I remove the stitches this Friday.  Anyone up for a little stitch removal?  Click the thumbs below for full-size pics in a new window.

some interesting facts:

    * Next was augers [ 43 cases ] and combines [ 40 cases ], followed by swathers [ 33 cases
    * The majority of accidents resulted when repairing machinery [32%].
    * 20% [ 85 cases ] were caught in operating machinery plus 1% [ 4 cases involved clothing caught in machinery ]


-The body part most often involved was the upper extremity, with fingers and thumbs recording the highest number of injuries.

I know that my accident is peanutes compared to what happened to Zeus...but I thought it was kinda funny that I too fell victim to a 'digit injury'.  I decided it would be a good idea to slam a door on my finger.  It hurts...
