I am tempted to spend my money I'll gotten gains on seeing you for the weekend
Man down. Me.
Tues 3/8/2019 Hornsey road
Going along about 17 mph.
Nice chap in van looks at me, i look at him. he pulls out quickly. slam on anchors. hit van head first tumble a fair old way. Ambo and police on the scene eventually but looked after by some very kind passers by including the chap in the car behind me.
Just been discharged from the whittington two days later. couple of snapped ribs and a small puncture to the lung. Those that know me will remember I have shit luck with lungs. Same lung that's collapsed a few times and been operated on https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/171117/
Police said driver was at fault. Got witness statements etc etc. Following this all up now.
Wanted to thank @spotter who was on the scene within minutes as I was off to meet him. Firstly I'd like to thank him for being handsome, and secondly for just generally looking after me, and liaising with friends/family/hospital etc and refusing to leave my side until I was settled.
Ow. Heal up soon and nice shit.
Oh yeah. Helmets work.
Look at that twat with the wonky eyelids, he is definitely not someone who would gain power of attorney from you whilst you were zonked on morphine...
look at the dent @cake left in the van with his head
Heal up soon, and sue the shit out of them. Good on you Spotter to look after him too.
Shit. Heal fast and be thankful you’ve kept your good looks.
Fecking hell, J. Get well soon. Hope you will get mended and the justice will be served.
Oh yes, helmets work! I had a crash about 2 months ago, heading to a green light and then there was grit which wasn't there on the day before:
From the outside:
Some people stopped and asked if everything is OK or not, and that it looked horrible. I could go to work by bike after some minutes, but let the bike then there for a week or two! Maybe two or three weeks afterwards it felt like every single bone on the crash side did hurt.
Beside the body the MacBook has now sign on one corner, and the display is bent a little bit, the cargo bib shorts have no marks (pretty interesting), and the rear derailleur hanger was bent.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
