We know EXACTLY what effect losing your manhood has. It makes you want 10 million dollars, because that will make him feel like a man again.
 
2012-10-04 05:07:20 AM
Sorry the guy lost his dong but - Penile implant replacement on a 61 y.o. fella? That is worth $350.00 max.
 
2012-10-04 05:07:48 AM
Only 10 million? This actually sounds reasonable, I'd be suing for 1 quadrillion at least.

So your penis is worth almost ten times more than your testicles (and legs and a hand)?

I kinda figured it'd be the other way around.

If I was this guy, and got a 10 million dollar settlement, the first thing I'd be thinking is "Yeah, I can get laid with this!" Except I couldn't...because I'd have no penis. Which would shortly lead to:

Maybe im thinking about this from the wrong angle, but last I heard, the life insurance for a service member (giggle) killed while on duty is $450,000 more or less. Somehow, knowing this old fark lost his winkie and now he's asking for compensation many times over what someones family would get if they were actually killed smacks of greed. Anyone have any thoughts? He should get something, but not 10 million. I feel a part of me wanting to say thats a slap in the face to those who died while in uniform.
Im conflicted on this one.
 
2012-10-04 07:01:38 AM
That will buy a lot of penis mightiers, and he'll be back to his old self in no time.
 
2012-10-04 07:02:58 AM
I'm on the VA check mailing list.
my vehicle blown offa cliff, woke up underwater, stuffed my guts back in, tried to give my pal cpr etc etc.

this seems way worse..and seriously negligent on behalf of the hospital.

Well to be fair, getting killed is over and done with for the soldier. That guy's got to live with no dick for the rest of his life. How much do you get if you're paralyzed from the waste down (which I imagine also makes you unable to use your chonson)?

The other issue is that you can get more out of malpractice-caused injury than you can out of line of duty injuries as a soldier. You can't sue Al Qaeda for shooting you (well maybe you can, but I don't think they're going to answer the court summons).
 
2012-10-04 07:06:21 AM
Are the facts that he's an Army veteran and has a broken dick related or is it mere coincidence?
 
2012-10-04 07:13:04 AM
I was thinking "How in the hell do you get frostbite on your dick while in a hospital?", but then I remembered what VA nurses are like.
 
2012-10-04 07:13:58 AM
19 hours. How much frakin ice did they use???

Losing your testicles as an adult does not necessarily mean losing sexual function. With hormone replacement therapy a guy with a penis but no testes could do everything but have children. Not that that really answers your question.
 
2012-10-04 07:35:50 AM
He was getting a penile implant (boner maker) replaced! This guy didn't lose his junk in battle -- he (or the hospital) froze it off after cosmetic surgery. I don't know why I am shouting this as I type! I am way too invested in this!

From my understanding, preference is usually given to maintain the ability to reproduce as that's the hurdle science has yet to solve as far as giving back to patients. Surgically constructing someone another penis is possible, so I was under the assumption that would result in less damages, relatively speaking.

But the two situations aren't identical, so maybe that's where the comparison fails.

penile implant...hmmmm

it still sucks, and horribly negligent

but not exactly worth 10 million

$10,000,000
or
$10, and 10 minutes with the nurse that did this, in a locked room, and a baseball bat, with no charges for anything that occurs.

2012-10-04 08:20:53 AM
Wait, he's suing them over loss of sexual function? Because you only get this surgery if you don't have sexual function anyhow.

Anyway, wouldn't making them cover the cost of reconstructive surgery be more logical?

I am talking fair market value. Nothing personal. It is now, at best, a 3rd gen, broken, frozen, 2 inch dong. $350.00
 
2012-10-04 08:42:40 AM
1)Guy goes in to the hospital to increase the function of his penis.
2)That very act causes him to lose nearly all function of his penis.

This would have been one of those rare occasions for which the ironic tag would have actually been appropriate.

p.s. He can have all the money he wants as far as I'm concerned.

Someone paralyzed from the waste down on active duty would be given a full medical retirement and 100% disability from the VA. It would amount to about the same a middle class worker would be making, plus a lot of benefits like free medical care for life, plus vet preference for government jobs and probably several I'm unaware of. It's not a lot of money, and certainly not going to enrich anybody unless they take advantage of it. A friend of mine from back in the day got paralyzed from the waste down and used his benefits to put himself through law school with virtually no bills at all when he completed his education. The kicker? He had not even graduated from West Point yet, and was screwing around near a pool, slipped on the deck and broke his neck. But was technically on duty when it happened.

On the other hand - break your tibia and fracture your L4 because some dipshiat rigger screwed up your parachute, and you get 10% disability which is about $140 a month. It's enough to keep me in decent tequila, but doesn't really do anything beyond that.

That said - they effed this guy up pretty good. He deserves whatever he can get.

I'm the 46-year-old owner of a temperamental 7" (at best) penis. In our time together it has let me down more times than I can count, generally does not conduct itself as a good penis ought in the rare episodes in which its services are required, and indeed perversely tends to obey the will of whatever tart I happen to be in bed with rather than mine. This delinquent tube of erectile tissue is responsible for any number of disgraceful encounters and evenings that should have turned out far better than they did had it performed its duties competently, and indeed the hundreds of dollars I've spent on erectile drugs can be laid to its account, for it cannot be relied upon to stand forth penisfully when the occasion demands. If I could fire the thing, I would send it packing this very day and laugh as it trudged limply down the sidewalk with a testicle in each hand searching for a new owner who could possibly deem its services adequate. Had I the money I might even do as the codger in TFA did and have some surgeon rip its guts out and replace them with a silicone/pump apparatus that will OBEY PROMPTLY when it receives its marching orders.

Alas, I can't. I have to make do with the penis I have, and I can tell you I wouldn't trade it for all the tea in China. You may have a point in that my penis is worth next to nothing to everyone but me, but losing it would be a devastating loss to me, nor could any amount of money compensate for it adequately unless someone devises a reliable penis transplant.

Let us see. We seem to hear a lot about the poor care in the VA hospitals and the government runs those hospitals. Let us all demand government provided healthcare. Look at me I am a Libtard I live in the land of rainbow dreams, free money trees and unicorn farts.
 
2012-10-04 10:26:10 AM
How does your penis get frostbitten? It lays right in one of the warmest parts of the body, and one that is typically not exposed. I would have expected his ears, (mine have been) fingers, nose, toes and most of the rest of his body before penis.
 
2012-10-04 10:31:05 AM
That free healthcare for life is sounding like a bad deal for the taxpayers
