32 Stitches and a Ceiling Fan

OK, so much earlier today I was in a rather exuberant mood for whatever reason... and I decided to go outside... the reason why I did that also eludes me at this point... well anyway... there's a step and a ceiling fan in my back porch and I kind of jumped into my back porch rather hard... hitting my head on the (moving) ceiling fan. Sadly, the first thing I did was go on IRC for medical advice. Later I went to the hospital, and 32 stitches later I'm good as new... ish. If you're having trouble visualising this, here is my highly-accurate, 3-color MSPaint portrayal of the incident:

You think that's bad? I've had run-ins with ceiling fans and I never had more than one foot off the ground.

But seriously, I hope you're doing fine and feeling well enough to post pictures of your stitches

You know you have a problem when the first thing you do after busting your head open is go onto IRC.

Yeah, hope you're o.k.

Next time, toss the cat in ahead of you to make sure it's safe.

heh...

I'm doing just fine by the way... my digicam basically died today so don't expect stitch pics, though

And richeee, I can still be your hero. Don't worry. The good I've done by far counterbalances this.

KWSN: That graphic you've provided, I'm sorry to have to point out, is a direct plagiarizing of the work of early Italian Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca, during his "bloody ceiling fan period".

Are you sure it wasn't his exhuberant jumping period, crackpot? It was somewhat later in life. It could be easily confused.

I was in #tfp when it happened. Situational comedy at its best.

I'm glad you are ok.

Oh wait, That's nothing like this.

As KWSN's squire, I must say that I was first troubled by his news that he had been mauled by the fericious whirling blades of doom. But apun more thinking, I relize that KWSN always does things for a reason. He has made us all aware of the dangers of leaping off stairs near revolving objects.

God Bless you, KWSN

I saw a guy on tv who stops fans with his head. He just plows into them. And btw, that's only 2 colors.

Too bad this wasnt caught on video tape. You could make a television show called "When ceiling fans attack!"
