I have enjoyed the sensation of falling once but luckily came out of that without a scratch (I've written about that more than once so I won't bore you with the details)
By the way, David...dude....what the hell is that avatar of yours?
For some reason it's seriously freaking me out....don't know why..
Peace, Ruben "Hurt me baby, hurt me...." Sluijter

I've put on 40 lbs, I permed my hair and grew a beard and mustache. What????? don't you like my new look?
It's actually from a skit on Saturday Night Live... (Will Ferral). haha.
I pinched my finger in the arm once and it bleed like crazy. Looked like a scene from Kill Bill! I haven't had an injury since.

where'd you find the cowbell thing? i looooovvvvveeee that skit. oh man, i need that!
Well, I was surfing the net trying to find out about different types of forums and came across Kevin Smith's (you know, director of Jay and Silent bob and clerks) and started reading some of the crazy posts and well, you just can't help notice the INSANE avatar's that people have on that forum.
Makes ours look like old fuddy duddy avatars.
I found Cowbell and copied it.. er... I mean borrowed it. I'll return it one day, I promise.
here it is for your amusement or horror depending on your POV.

I did have one more serious accident, while wearing my harnass and arm but in rest, not with the rig: As I walked through a set (hospital set) with my IIIa arm attached to my FM vest and I was holding it with my real arm, 2 guys carrying a big table approched me and in passing the corner of the table hit my elbow. But my elbow was locked against the 3A arm and it could not move away and was severely hurt, but not crushed. It did take a couple of weeks to get normal.
