So pathetic that I just had to share.

Posted September 4th, 2010 at 09:10 PM by Chardar
I normally blog about customs or some other worthwhile topic, but I just had to post this.

I'm in pretty good shape. I live on a farm so I'm to throwing around haybales and feed bags. I'm also an avid hiker. I've done a three day backpacking trip in Upstate New York and last spring I climbed Guadelupe, the tallest mountain in Texas. Which makes this all the more embarrassing.

This morning I woke up with a little twinge by my shoulder blade. I guess I slept on it wrong or something, I don't really know. Anyway I ignored it and went about my morning chores. As I was jogging from the barn to the pond the shoulder that had the twinge suddenly filled with pain. I don't know how to describe it. Sort of like someone was trying crush it from the inside. It faded after a few minutes, but I didn't do any more jogging that day.

Later that day I decided to get to work on Lefton4ya's quick set up contest. I had the map finished, and was putting some figures on it to see how it looked. As I lifted up a Marro Drone my shoulder once again exploded in pain. It was even worse this time. It faded after a few minutes just like the last time, but it still twinged for the rest of the day.

So my question is this. Did you ever hurt yourself while making a map? I mean that's probably one of the stupidest things I have ever done.

That sounds like it could be serious. You should probably get it looked at.

I ocasionally hurt myself trying to pull battlements off the 7-hex and 9-hex wall walk pieces, but for the most part my mapmaking is injury-free.

Yeah, Castle pieces always seem to cause me injury. Especially when trying to slide one wall into another. Very easy to pinch your fingers!

I always slice my fingers while working with castle towers and ladders.

The whole castle set is painful to work with. Whether it's putting a base on a wall, sliding two walls together, taking off a ladder, or taking off a battlement, I seem to get hurt. All the castle pieces are very stiff and rigid.

Rednax if they stay that way for more than 5 hours you are supposed to see a doctor.

it's always hard to get ladders off regular, non castle terrain. i've scraped my fingertips off once or twice doing that.

I haven't had any trouble with the castle pieces. But why did they have to make the ladders so darn sharp?

and why are the bases like that? So frustrating

You throw around haybales and feed bags...
(I worked on a dairy farm for a year, so I understand what you're mooing about)
Perhaps you have been building this injury for a long time- and lifting the Marro Drone was just the final straw for your poor camel back.

You should go to the doctor.
