Ask the stoned guy thread - broken clavicle edition!

Guess who is on the heavy pain meds again, only this time from a self inflicted collarbone break rather than the dermatologist practicing his suture skills. Typing on handed with my non-dominate side, so even more typos are likely! If you don't know the rules, thats ok cause there are none. Just ask a question an I'll respond with the irst thing that my vicodin swirled mind thinks of.

Ooooh, I remember that pain. Mine is still out of place... it's just fused back together. Good luck in the recovery. If they didn't give you a clavicle harness, ask for one. They make a world of difference.

Wrenching alone is so much safer.

If you fell of a bike while not clipped in, is it still a clipless fall?

well of course not, to be clipped in and that to be the reason that you fall that makes it a clipless fall. thus, though i was clipped in, it was not the cause of my ill fated moment on the bike.

If the upstairs neighbors are rocking my ceiling, should I wait till it stops shaking before telling them to be more quiet?

naw, i find a 50 pack of back cats in a coffee can solves those sorts of noises rather promptly. your mileage may vary.

When a really hot female cop asks for license and registration, is it wise to say "do you want my number too?"???

well, it is a nearly fool proof way to either spend more time together, see her again, or if you are lucky both. i wish you good luck.
