  1. I'm back, but will only be here for a little while until my fingers/hands heal properly.

    I got injured at work 2 weeks ago, and now have 2nd degree birns on both of my hands and fingers. It sucks bigtime, cause I have to type everything with my thumbs. So that's all I've got for now, but I'll be back in another week or 2.

    I'm typing this with my thumbs, and man it sucks. I feel sorry for you dude.

    But good luck with your healing and we'll see you soon :D

    And I can imagine pain worse than a burn or the dentist...

    Well maybe not a root canal with no anaesthesia.

    Wow! I'm sorry to hear that poertner_1274, how did it happen in the first place? And I just bought Counter Strike and Counter Strike Condition Zero today! I'm currently installing it on my other computer as we Speak!

    Jesus thats terrible, will they scar? At least you should get a heavy compensation pay of?

    edit: just realised how crappy it is typing with thumbs, just reply when uve healed.

    See kids ? This is what happens when you take three Viagra pills right before the wife says she's going out to play bingo... :p

    That sucks man. I hope your work is repaying you for the trouble somehow. Do you have days off to recover ?

    Just tried typing with my thumbs...

    Not amusing.

    The concept/process of trying to type with the thumbs is amusing. I'm sure it's entertaining for a third party to watch.

    The how you got there isn't. :dead:

    Dang Poert, that sucks. I hope your wife is being good to you and all...

    This post was typed without the thumbs. Took me 5 minutes to type a 1 sentence message to sngx to see if he knew what had happened.

    I can't do anything for myself. I pretty much have to be fed, bathed, and cared for. I'm just glad I'm married, otherwise mom would have to do it...

    I've been off for 2 weeks, and get all of next week off as well. Not sure if I'll get compensated or not cause I'm a contract employee, but I should find out later this week.

    That's all for now, take care all.

    Gonna be gone another week at the lake. Won't be able to do much unfortunately, cause I love wakeboarding, and my hands are still going to be tender and screwed up.

    But I'll make the best of it.

    Anyway just a quick note before I left.

    p.s. Don't worry I'll be back in full force once my hands fully recover.

    You're not sure you'll be compensated?? I thought the US was the land of compensation culture (although we're just as bad now I guess), but here it doesn't matter what way you're employed by someone, they'd be liable....
