Out of the Blue

My toe is much better this morning, and I'm pretty positive it isn't broken: In fact yesterday I looked up "turf toe" to see if maybe I could claim to have this, since that seems athletic, but it sounds like that's the result of a hyperextension more than an impact, so I'm stuck with "stubbed." Speaking of impact, with MrsBlue commuting to Manhattan again, I am being re-introduced to the joys of sharing the road with morning commuters as I drop her at the train. We haven't had any cool near misses yet, but that's not for lack of trying: The traffic signal at the main intersection we use has been broken since the weekend, and is just constantly flashing red. As any driver should know, this makes this a four-way stop. Unfortunately, we don't just have *any* drivers around here, as I have not yet seen a single driver (other than myself) stop for it, and it's only through sheer dumb luck that there hasn't been a serious collision there yet.

Yeah but I really don't think we want to see Blue strip down over a webcam, let alone get him to the North or South pole (can't remember which it was)
It can't be worse than Doctor Manhattan.

They make fine workers so long as you administer regular beatings.

Until morale improves, the beatings will continue.

I think it was gangrene. Or no...it was the marrow leaking out into the blood stream. Ok I forget. I like House a lot tho. He's a lot like me.

it was the episode with Mira Sorvino stuck in antarctica and the team had to do a tele-diagnosis. house talked her into taking her clothes off on cam for science! and diagnosis, and found something before he got to her feet which was where the break was. the cold numbed the pain so she had no idea it was there. yes that was all from memory =P

ahh yes. I remember now. That was a pretty cool(no pun intended lol) episode. Kinda hard to remember with 8 seasons. I'm glad they ended it, stuff was getting pretty thin.

that is seriously frightening, that people around those parts just blow through flashing red lights. i would completely avoid that intersection completely while that's the case, because at an intersection where neither direction stops? that's a multiple fatality accident just waiting to happen.

Sure, then they made another 4 seasons and had stuff like "patient levitates off bed" with no explanation

That show was so good in the first 3 seasons

Blue give it time...both the toe and traffic light I mean.

Seriously though, if you can wiggle your toe without too much pain its not broken. If its immobile or causes serious pain when you try to wiggle it well then you might have a bigger problem...
