    It's wrapped in a gauze turban. You'll just have to imagine your thumb under enough weight to blow out like a tire just beneath the fingernail. :D

    Bled for about 8 hours. :whistle:

    Yeah, I just about lost the end, from the last joint, of my left (thank you). Got in between two moving parts of the engine hoist. You know of course this was on a Sunday afternoon, didn't get to bed until 02:00 Monday. Broke the bone, Dr. pulled the nail but it grew back. Mine didn't stop the bleed until it was stiched, X-Ray dude had to dismiss himself (Beuick!).:haha:

    Private property. The cover sits on top of an irrigation cistern and is used to access the main feeder pipe about 10 feet below ground level.

    I just smashed my thumb in my own car door

    I didn't say anything, I just kind of stood there in wonder at my own stupidity
