This is one of the rod.. (current one.. different X-Ray next month!)
1st one is the break in a cast.. they left me for over 4 weeks like this saying it would heal.. HA!
2nd is after the OP.Yes you can see the break and the gap between the ones.. that where its twisting.

Anyone have any tips to scanning them in better??
I've borrowed a Agfa Snapscan 1212u

So much for eating breakfast, Matt. I just lost my appetite.

Cool.... I dig this stuff. Discovery Channel doesn't have anything over this website.

Kevin - would you like to see the x-rays from my ACL reconstruction? It's only a couple of screws. How 'bout the MRI or the arthroscope pictures from inside my knee? I can bring them to Moab if you'd like.

I'm betting you're not going to be eating much today.

Brian, I have the entire ACL rebuild of my left knee on VIDEO!! The doc had the arthroscope setup with a VCR. I started to watch it and had to stop. My wife thought it was pretty cool though. Maybe we can bring our flicks, slam some brews (any of you guys "Shotgun" beers?), pop up some popcorn with coconut oil (only the best!), watch the flick and watch me "Power Yack" my cookies!

Matt,
Quit trying to save money by going to the veterinarian (sheep doctor :) ) and go see a REAL doctor.

Matt, it looks like you have a saws-all blade in your arm! Glad to see you have a good sense of humor about it. What else can you do?

Yeah.. the rod looks like a saw cos I scanned it in low res to keep the size down!
Its actually smooth! (like a babies bottom!) :)

What else CAN I do??

Someone esle had 'played' with it and the main transducer was &%$#@!ED!
Ahh well.. another days work maybe next week when its fixed! :D

I hold the record amongst my mates of 18 shots of Mezcal in a row (and the worm) without a Ralph, but it's not a record I want to defend in a hurry :D
