im a 32 year old male, and years ago i smashed something hard with my right hand, it swelled up at the time , then the swelling went down and i thought nothing more of it.

years later , i noticed that when i strike say a punch bag with my right fist, i get shooting pains in the knuckle , the hands looks normal, except for the second to middle knuckle looking ‘ slightly ‘ bigger than the other one , i can grip with it and use it etc , get no pain – months ago , i went to have it examined by a hand surgeon, the surgeon told me that the nerves in my knuckle were probably damaged, and that surgery ” couldn’t ” repair the nerves in my knuckle, and that i would just have to accept it.

i remember also having x ray done at the time which showed no arthritis. so i left it at that.

months and months later, i keep worrying ‘ what if i get arthritis in the knuckle ‘ i keep looking at my hand and worrying….i dont get swelling in it…or inflammation , no pain really.

the only things ive noticed is that the area of the knuckle that i hit my hand with looks ‘ slightly ‘ bigger that the knuckle joint on my left hand , sometimes i feel a slight ” tightness ” and slight ” burning ” sensation in the knuckle – but no other symptoms.

im a chronic worrier with anxiety problems and have had so many other things on my plate, that i haven’t even had time to address ” any ” physical problems i might or might not have.

none of my parents have any arthritis – could anybody tell me what these symptoms mean ?

and whether or not i should go again to get my knuckle investigated ?
healing

thanks

sorry for my lack of explanation.

i mean can you still use your hands normally ?

or does it eventually disable you from using your hands all together ?

The tactics of the Battle of the Somme..
-German barbed wire cut & trenches and dug outs smashed.
-British troops being able to walk over no mans land and not run after a huge artillery bombardment.
-Carry over heavy trench repair equipment to rebuild and defend German trenches so they couldn’t reclaim them
Is there any I haven’t put?
& I need to know evidence on how they didn’t work (such as not many people were killed because of the artillery bombardment so when the men tried to walk over, they had to run, and the barbed wire being like 30 Meters wide so it wasn’t cut properly.) and evidence that they did work?
Thank you.

 My brains trying not to squeeze through my skull. Whilst My body seems to be missing a soul. I looked in the reflection my face was blurred. My mouth would move but wouldn’t say a word. So I cut my hand smashing that mirror with my fist. Caus I’ve been trying to remember a memory that doesent exist. Im a ghost walking amongst the living and the dead. A broken nightmare replaying in my head. A boy with no dreams is a boy with no talent. A see through heart makes you feel transparent. I’m stuck with this  false vision. The truth in this lie is I’m trapped in my own prison. My face seems to be one that’s always forgotten. A head that can’t work out how it’s thoughts turnt rotten. I’m up in the clouds having a chat with the lord. Talking in his ear he’s telling me he’s bored. The floor starts to break under my feet. As  I watch hell transend through the street. Can it be repaired I can’t stop this friction. My thoughts rub on my brain like it’s some kind of addiction. There’s something missing behind my appearence. When I try to find out I get blocked by some kind of interference. Trying to buriey the past but it won’t stay in the ground. It goes missing but somehow gets found.

what are your fav episodes and why?

some of mine are:

nile and frasier open a restraunt – good slapstick comedy. daphne smashing that eel against the table was priceless

daphne’s room – frasier goes into daphnes room. in the end they are all in there, daphne flips out

they gay boss thinks he is on a date with frasier.

the one where daphne causes the car crash. you find out she wore her red dress becasue she thouoght niles was going to tell her how he feels

niles in the hospital – very sad but at the end you see niles and daphne have a baby. makes me want to cry

niles and frasier take an auto repair class – they write the note in french.

-niles tells daphne – the way he boldly tells her he will dump mel just like that!

sooo many good ones!

I have a 1995 3000gt sl that I bought a couple of years ago for about $5.5K. Its my baby and I kept it well maintained and did tons of upgrades. About two weeks ago some idiot ran a stop sign and smashed in to my passenger side.. needless to say there is some serious body damage. The isurance agent contacts me and tells me my car has been declared a total loss and they offered me $2000. What!!!!.. When i called her I find out that my car has been totaled once before in 2003 and b/c of that I only get the salvage value for it. This is absolutely ridiculous because even if the car was totaled before.. it had been fully restored before i bought it. Now if I take the $2000 then i cant even get the car repaired nor buy another one close to same condition. It just feels like I got screwed hard all b/c some idiot ran the stop sign…. Mind you 3000gt’s are stop production since 99 and these cars get restored all the time..shudnt mean that my baby was only worth $2000 dollars. Is there anything I can do about this to get some more money or prove my car was worth more. The car is mechanically still fine.,.. the only damage was to the door and side fender. If i cant get any more money then wats my best option… sell it or part it or fix it up….

Ok, so my housemate has left some washing up 3 months ago, and I refuse to do it on principle. They’ve also consistently used up huge amounts of toilet roll and other peoples washing powder without replacing it. Also, their stuff is in their old room (switched over the summer) whilst their new room is full of their girlfriend’s stuff… basically, the other housemate is having to sleep in an otherwise vacant room for the time being.

More importantly though, they still owe over £140 in bills/utilities which everyone else has paid and won’t contribute to the household cleaning/repair products to ensure we keep our deposit. They claim the bill money was lost in an ‘administrative error’ but are avoiding giving details for us to chase it up.

Lastly, they’ve threatened to break one of my housemates faces and have smashed up a kitchen cupboard door and a mirror in their time here. It’s not making for a good atmosphere!

We’ve been sharing for about 6 months now… we’ve tried talking in person (but usually get brushed off) and by email (where he gets aggressive and accuses me of pettiness) is there anything I can do?
Just realized something I forgot to add… he’s been running a car repair business off of our driveway too in breach of our tenancy agreement. The same goes for breaching the agreement by subletting his room when he went on holiday without even asking for prior permission from the rest of us!

I have a door with a smashed whole, and I want to know what I can use to cover it in a way that is not too noticeable.
This is not my picture, but it shows a door like mine with a similar hole:

http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/01/05/7c/cd/door-with-hole.jpg

The door is not heavy, it looks kind of cheap. The whole is about 7″ in diameter.

Please, if someone knows what I can use/buy to repair the problem, post it. I will appreciate it a lot.
Thank you!

PS: THIS IS A TRUE STORY

In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky.
a) When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.
b) Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean’s driveshaft fitted to it.
c) When James Dean’s Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.
d) Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it’s mount and broke a teenager’s hip.
e) In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it’s towbar and smashed through the front of a shop.
f) Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports.

Question: If you don’t believe in curses, are you brave enough to take home one or all of the 11 remaining pieces of the car?
If you do believe in curses….what do you think about this story?
