    Attn: 1%, Techone in hospital

    I apologize ahead of time for the fact that this post is pretty much directed at momentum, fixedpip, and tresspasser but this is the one of the better ways to get to everyone.

    Yo guys, Mike had a pretty bad stack tonight and is spending the night in UCL hospital on Euston Road. I may or may not hit the track tomorrow depending on how he feels but ollie, little john, messenger james, and I (well lima came too but required a degree of assistance) went with him. He's alright but he landed on his head and shoulder. His face is pretty busted up and his collarbone might be broken but we're not sure what the deal really is. I have no credit left so I can't get in touch with you so please gimme a call some time tomorrow (preferably a little after 10) and I'll tell you what I know.

    Peace,
    Jack

    Ok so Tech is out as of today and made it through the night. Out of respect for his privacy (which I've already violated by even posting this thread, sorry tech) I'll let him decide how much he wants to let people know. Either way though heal quick man, 1%'s got your back.

    yea, beers and bikes, along with car headlights and a motorbike. Not to mention the ****in hard ass pavement!

    A stitched up lip, inside and out. A bruised, swollen and very crusty cheek and a busted but not broken shoulder is the damage so far. I'll be dealing with dentists after the stitches come out which is now my biggest fear since I can tell my teeth aren't sitting quite right. A brain scan came up with (and apparently I was the only one that knew this...) a perfectly good working brain! Imagine that!

    Minx, Juvikyle, Joshfrank and Stendhalian - Cheers for the thoughts.
    Others who know who you are - Thanks for being there.

    Word but only if you post it 1% style on this thread. As for your steed, when can i get it back to you. It misses your sweet embrace. Salmon, tress, and I stopped by today but your punk ass was out.
