This is a rare X-ray for me:
What is so special about it? Well, you see, there is nothing broken. All bones are fine. Just goes to show that you can block a side-kick with your open hand if you really have to, so there. It was weird walking out of the hospital without a cast or something - I think I have broken about twelve different bones so far (epiphyseal cartilage on both of my thumbs, both big toes, clavicle [twice, although the one at my birth probably doesn't count], sawed through my thumb, ribs, metatarsal, anklebone, fibula, tibia) which means I have quite a ways to go to catch up with Mister Chan - but I managed, somehow.
Probably also goes to show that I am getting old, and am now running to the hospital for every little stretched ligament, but we shall speak of that no more.
Incidentally, the hospital where I went for the X-ray has a new digital X-ray machine, which is much more sensitive, and consequently uses really low-power rays. So you don't get a nifty lead-skirt any more to protect your private parts. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean that you can do a couple more x-rays of said parts "just for fun". Believe me, I asked.
