  1. Your graphics? They’re really good.

      It’s a collage of authorized international caution pictograms, slightly altered and with my own caption. I can’t take credits for anything else but putting them together.

    lol

    Few of those happened to me, too but thanks God, not all of them 😀

    I got inspired by recent events.

    My son was

    1) driving bicycle
    2) in the middle of the night
    3) through the Copenhagen City District
    4) while being drunk.

    Result:
    a broken ankle, and so far 12 days in the hospital

    This made me think about all the injuries I have obtained while being under the influence of alcohol. Not that I need an event like that to remember them, I’ve got the scars and bruises and the pain, so I’ll never forget, but as a responsible father I had to tell him about just a few of them, the dislocated jaw, the clotted up nose (when the entire nasal system is filled with dried blood, you cannot imagine the pain, probably the worst I’ve ever tried, though it sounds quite harmless), my numerous faceplants, broken this, dislocated that, and the merry days spent at different hospitals on the same account. There’s a reason why I’m on the disability retirement thing.

    Oh yeah, those were the days.

    Luckily I have not had one single accident since I quit.

    By the way, here’s another one. It’s sort of “What Happened Yesterday”:

    That looks like a job I worked once.

      Come to think of it, why is it that in comic books when people have an accident it always gives them special powers. Think about it, Peter Parker gets bitten by a “radioactive spider”, and turns into Spider-Man, several others was “exposed” to chemicals, and in stead of dying a very painful death from poisoning, they become super-fast or stuff like that. It’s not fair. Then again, we have a saying in Denmark that goes like: “Accidents can make you smarter, but never richer.”

        There’s a comic book novel called Marvels that looks at the Marvel Universe through the eyes of a man on the street as these people come about at the start of the second world war up to the present day. Beautifully written and drawn, it takes pride of place in my bookshelf.

        There’s also a flipside to that called ruins where everything that can go wrong does. The Human Torch emerges from the spacecraft on fire but just won’t die while Reed Richards has no bones left in his body. Spider-Man dies from the radiation in his blood. In a top secret base is Doctor Bruce Banner who was hit by a gamma bomb. A living mass of tumours that just keep growing, they call him the Hulk now. Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze sets his head on fire for the stunt that kills him.

        There are lots more examples in that comic.
