    Merry Christmas to you and your Mrs., Mr Mac.

    Never said i was "full of it" if you were 15 and you wanted an account somewhere but had to be 18 you can not honestly say you would not lie about your age i mean really come on

    When I was 15 I had better things to do than lie(full of it) about my age to get on a computer site and blow a bunch of bunk around. At 15 I would think you'd have discovered girls already, but who knows, to each their own. Come back in 3 years when you should be here by the site rules and after a couple things have hopefully dropped by then, giving you a better grasp on reality.

    Haven't posted here, cause... I'm too tough to care...

    Anyway, up at my folk's place for christ mass, brothers ex wifes step kids... (its a small town) slips and falls on the ice

    makes his sister go get help cause he can't get up cause it hurts so bad.

    Me being me I ask if he's bleeding, she says no, but he can't get up and needs help...

    Wander on out there... fell on his ass banged his elbow and is nearly in tears over it... little bastard is 12 and has never fallen on ice...

    ask if his hands work, yes, do yer feet work, yes, does yer head hurt, no just my elbow, well if yer hands works nothings broke so get the **** up.

    Yer in the sticks now kid things hurt here get used to it.

    Also later, my real nephew mentioned that the instructor for his diesel mechanics course doesn't know how to rebuild hydraulic cylinders... so I totally went off on ****ing teachers not knowing **** and its no surprise these kids don't know **** if the teachers are that dumb...

    meanwhile my uncle who was a cranky bastard when I was a teenager is chuckling in the corner... sounded just like him...

    You must be confused with breaking some other bone in your body, it is impossible to do anything other than be lying position with a broken femur!

    Nah man the massive bulging muscles held the bone in place. Anything is possible if you have "imagination"

    Little **** of a great nephew (or something like that) sneaked into my shed, stole my drone and him and an unwitting accomplice lost it somewhere over the neighbours forestry block. No apology, no remorse. Next day, he spills a drink, twice in quick succession, looks around and doesn't see anyone watching him, so leaves the mess on the floor and walks out the door. I meet him there, call him a disrespectful little prick and he is in tears because nobody has ever spoken to this precious wee snowflake like that. Nekminit the prick's mom accosts me for calling her wee cupcake a prick. Sure, not my best diction, but fark me slowly - what about the prick's disrespect? Zero consequences for him means yet again dickhead parents are breeding and conditioning tomorrows assholes/criminals. She had the cheek to accuse me of harrasing her child who has a "learning disability" as she put it. I shouldn't have but couldn't help but suggest she herself had a "teaching disability".

    Apart from that, it has been a wonderful small break from work.

    so, yeah I'm so tough I make small cupcakes burst into tears. I could get used to this reputation.

    "broke my femour bone on my other leg supposedly the worst bone to break"
    Ah! the old broken leg you have when you don't have a broken leg, I'm afraid we'd have to see X-rays to prove it, if you've ever had a X-ray they send you home with them, if they didn't the drs surgery or hospital would be overflowing with them.
    Unfortunately speaking from experience I've had a dislocated kneee & two broken legs, fortunately not all at the same time & I've still got all the X-rays, some of which are 32 years old.

    one of my nephews has down syndrome, a legitimate disability, dude has a tough time with everything, but he's polite, and as responsible as he can be.

    Just cause yer rug rat has ADD does not mean he can't learn manners

    I told my buddies 13 yr old nephew I was going to slit his throat, hang him up like a moose and then watch him bleed out and stuff him in the woodstove... and I was almost serious.

    The SOB about burned the shop down thus summer. 75* day and Im outside cutting wood. I smell smoke, thought it was odd to be burning trash.

    Well... he stuffed a bunch of stuff in the stove, to include several of my campfire bundles (had that setup in the shop).

    He lit the stove, with a lighter he stole from his crack/meth head Mom. We had a fiberglass ladder leaning against the stove, some shovels and some boxes on the stove, plus about 2 cords of wood for bundles right near.

    Apparently I had a crazed look when I grabbed him by the scalp and said that because now he says "yes sir" to me. His Mom can't understand how he respects someone.

    I must be a puss, when I knocked the ball off my femur I only made two steps before taking a face plant in a mud road.
    I still get nauseous when I think about.
