Did the headline contain "Fark-ready headline of the week:"?

Phantom limb for the loss

Now she'll have phantom limb splints.

Love the comments.

"This is America. You will not beat us with fear and terror."

Uhh, have you stepped back and looked at your country lately? Someone beat you with fear and terror long ago.

Hey at least she's having a sense of humor about it. It'll help with coping hopefully.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you.  Cry, and you cry alone.

/good job, dear

That's some awesome optimism. I like her style.

OK - this is it. I am officially sick and tired of hearing about the bombing, the bombers, the bombees, and farking Boston. There is other stuff happening in the world.

"He saw Corcoran's mangled legs, rushed her to first aid tents and prayed strangers would take care of his daughter.

Sydney's femoral artery had been severed, but three passersby stayed with her, put pressure on the wound and tied a tourniquet around it to stop the bleeding, Carter said. The femoral artery is a main artery in the thigh, and Sydney's wound would have been fatal had the strangers not stopped to help her, doctors told Carter."


So dad chose wife over daughter.  That's going to be awkward at home...

It's very likely he has no experience with triage and went with helping the one with the most obvious injuries.

Speaking of silver linings: You know what hasn't come up yet?  Amputee porn.  I know, weird and gross.  It exists.  I have seen girls giving what can only be described as "nub jobs" and these folks may have a new carreer.

Yeah you kinda need to fark off.

This is a pretty damn impressive human being. Look down at your feet and ask yourself if you'd miss them if they were gone.If not, go get them blown off and post your opinion then.

Go fark yourself.

I was trying to explain to Mrs. Stealthd why I would pick her first, over the Li'l Stealthd.  She did not understand, but I would do what this guy did.

I love Li'l Stealthd, and wouldn't hesitate to put myself in harm's way for her, but if I had to choose which of the two of them to save... I'm not sure I could survive without Mrs. Stealthd.

I just came here to say that that band "The Shins" really suck.

They. Suck.

I feel better, thanks.

Carry on.

It is commendable that injured soldiers came to help talk people through their experiences, but "volunteering to go to a war" and "I just wanted to have a nice day with the kids" are quite different, I should think, psychologically.

with one, you canm make more, with the other you either cant or shouldnt, depending on equipment.

plus, less time and resources have gone into educating and raising the little one so less of a waste of time.

Then stop reading about it. Pretty simple. And stop reading discussion boards about it. Pretty simple.

But do announce how you are tired of it and keep reading about it.

Also, our whole job as parents is to make sure that Li'l Stealthd LEAVES THE HOUSE at some point.  Imma live with Mrs. until we're toast.

I was 14. Just a little older than Bobby. But I knew Uncle Sam needed me, so I lied and signed up.

We had beat the Nazis in Italy and they shipped us to the pacific theater. A Tojo torpedo sent our troop ship to the bottom. I could only save three of my buddies Fatty, Stinky and Brooklyn. They were kind of like you fellas only one of them was from Brooklyn.

Out of the sun came a Tojo zero. It put fifty bullets in my back. The blood attracted sharks. I had to give them Fatty.

Then things took a turn for the worse. I made it to an island, but it was full of Tojos. They were spitting on the U.S. flag, so I rushed them. But it was a trap. They opened fired and blew my shins off.

Last thing I remembered, I beat them all to death with a big piece of Fatty. I woke up in a field hospital and they were sewing my feet to my knees.

As someone who has endured the terrible pains of shin splints all four years of high school track and field, I'm glad that she has her runner's will and drive still intact! Shin splints are the worst. I admire her optimism.

OH man, and not to mention, it's a lot easier dealing with an adult that has lost its child, than to console, cloth, feed, and raise a child who lost its mother.
Heartless convo much? ;p

Love me some amputee humour.  We're the first to poke fun at ourselves.

Youtube video of amp visiting mom & daughter very touching

When you do the "wheel barrel" with a double amputee, is it still called a "wheel barrel" since technically no legs, right?

UsikFark: Now she'll have phantom limb splints.


Phantom splints can be a Menance. There is Obi Wan way to get rid of them. A Jar-Jar of Icy Hoth.

/I was gonna keep going with the puns, but I was afraid at that speed, I'd never be able to pull out in time.
