Alright, I meant no respect to Big Ben, and I'm really glad he's going to be okay. I just meant to pose an unusual question.
I didn't mean for people to fantasy line-up for parts of the guy...



Okay, a gruesome thought. But what if Big Ben was on life support and not expected to survive.
And, if he filled out the "Organ Donor" card on his driver's license...

Wouldn't it be COOL to be the guy who got Rothelisberger's eyes? or kidney? or Femur? They could give his tibia and fibula to Carson Palmer.

Man, who wouldn't want to be the guy at the bar chugging brews.
"Bring another round! I got Big Ben's Liver working for me!"

Hey. I started this post with "gruesome thought"...but it's a big damn "what if?"

I'm glad he's okay. He's lucky in my opinion.

I'm sorry, I don't think it would be anymore cool than Average Joe Tragedy giving me their organs. No matter who decides to donate they are a hero and a life saver much more important than any SB QB.

I'm glad he's okay. He's lucky in my opinion.1. I think you're a bit odd. And not in a good way.

2. "Lucky" is finding a $20 bill on the ground. Running into a long-lost friend at the grocery store is lucky. I guess winning a Super Bowl you shouldn't because the refs are bent could be considered lucky as well. But smashing face-first through a windshield, getting most of your teeth knocked out and several broken bones in your head, all while becoming the national poster child for dumbass in the process, is decidedly NOT lucky.

I don't buy into surviving horrible shit as lucky. Lucky people don't experience horrible shit in the first place. If a wrecking ball falls on your car while you're in it, but you happen to live, you aren't lucky. God threw a wrecking ball at you. Maybe He just missed.

If we're going to divide up his body parts, at least there should be a lottery or something so everybody could have a fair chance.

Maybe we could play Ben's Body Bingo.

Yeah, the arm is where it's at. I'd possibly even consider doing the three-armed Chinese baby thing and adding it even if I had two arms already.

Alright. So this is maybe my reflection on this society's overdone and morbid curiosity with celebrity. How many friggin' tabloids step over each other to get a picture of somebody's death pic, or hospital photo, etc.

This post is no better than them, I guess. Just posing a thought-provoking question.

Fractured nose? There is no bone in the nose, only cartilage. Have you ever seen a nose bone on a skeleton?

Don't tell me tell the source: WPXI-TV.
I'm just being the messenger...that's not my writing.
K?


But come to think of it...I was diagnosed once with a small fracture on my nose by a medical clinic.

That's because in most cultures the mortician is allowed to keep the nose bone to make decorative jewelry for resale.

Is that true?

I'm touching my nose right now...and it sure feels like bone on the bridge but it wiggles near the tip? :)

Now that it looks like Ben will be OK, in response to the thread topic. I will just take an arm and a leg so I can fill up my gas tank.

Errr what? He has fractured cartilage?Here you go, dipshit...
A nasal fracture is a break in the bone over the ridge of the nose. It usually results from a blunt injury and is one of the most common facial fracture. Symptoms of a broken nose include pain, blood coming from the nose, bruising around the eyes, misshapen appearance, swelling, and difficulty breathing through the nose. Serious nose injuries can cause problems that require immediate attention. However, for minor nose injuries, the doctor may prefer to see the victim after the swelling subsides to evaluate the extent of injury.

You can break a nose badly enough that it forces the surgeons to fabricate a new one. A friend of mine did.

Several years ago, he fell asleep at the wheel and ran his car into a cornfield, beating the hell out of his face on the steering wheel in the process. As I type this, it dawns on me that his injuries (broken nose and other facial bones, lost teeth etc.) were similar to Big Ben's.

He ended up with a scar from ear to ear across the top of his head, because the surgeons cut him there, PEELED HIS FACE OFF, replaced the destroyed nose cartilage (with what, I'm not sure) and fixed the other fractures, then rolled his face back on. Eek. Think on that for awhile.
