Big Bang Theory
2007 Personal Account

A patient at the local clinic sustained serious injuries from a fishing accident, including a ruptured eyeball and total hearing loss in one ear. Both legs were amputated mid-thigh. How did the normally mild sport of fishing become so dangerous?

The man had been standing at the end of a dock with a bucket of dynamite, two-inch chunks each fused and capped. He took a chunk, lit the fuse, cocked his arm for the throw... and dropped the chunk into the bucket of dynamite!

Instantly recognizing the serious situation he was in, the man dove off the dock. But water is incompressible. It transferred the force of the explosion, in line with the blast, against his body.

Besides his other injuries, the force also damaged both gonads. One doctor was heard to remark that the gene pool was safe, as this patient had lost his balls. © 1994 - 2020
