    That's pretty cool, man. My brother just had surgery on his leg to repair a load of ligaments and nerves he managed to destroy in a freak accident by falling over playing football. Gave him "drop foot" and he's basically been crippled for ages.

    Makes you appreciate the shit that makes you tick.
