singer threw a skate deck (the wood platform of a skateboard) into the crowd and it clocked my friend in the forehead. left a gash all the way to the skull, and it wasn't even moving that fast. light, unassuming, and hard as nails. im ditching my bat and getting a skate deck.

I hope your friend made the idiot bandmember sign his skull wrap...

we both got showered with free merchandise, he was (i feel) mortified at what happened, and he paid for her medical bills. she got 11 stiches. plus, we got to meet Mark, from Guttermouth! the guy that nailed her was from the band touring with guttermouth. she was angrier about missing them than getting hit!

Ahem, that's ridiculous.

In the movie "Kids" some people kill someone with skateboards, with the trucks (metal parts) on them...

pretty brutal.

Skateboards, particularly longboards, can be fun to have on a campus. But they aren't as sturdy as the "normal" skateboards. And a skateboard is much slower to swing than a bat. Maybe better to block though.

plus, we got to meet Mark, from Guttermouth!:scrutiny:

Well, you may as well go ahead and die now.

What more could a person hope for in their life, and what could possibly top that monumental experience?

I mean, really......

Mark.

From Guttermouth, no less.

:cool:

meef, it was just icing on the cake. i would have been perfectly fine NOT meeting him and just going to see the show. nice guy though.

I wasn't faulting you KiltedClaymore. But that skateboard-throwing guy is really, really lucky your friend wasn't dead, or disabled...

Or lawyered up.

It's pretty much to be expected that he would pay the medical bills. Heck, I'd have probably asked for an unofficial settlement right there. I mean, you go to see some music, and someone throws a skateboard?!

the worlds greatest joy is the satisfaction of watching a pound of black powder propel pieces of your jack-o-lantern hundereds of feet in every direction.

Mark.

From Guttermouth, no less.

:p

Guys, keep it civil. Let's not let our attempts at humor cross a line or get overly offended by a joke delivered on the net where we can'y see delivery and expression (that's what the emoticons are for, btw:rolleyes:;):cool::neener:). What is it, a full moon or something?:confused: Oh, yeah. It is a full moon.:eek:

it's cool, i knew it was a joke of the dry humor variety.It was, actually.

I get carried away sometimes. My attempts at humor can often be dryer than a popcorn fart.

:) awesome.


I've been hit with a board. In my youth, I used to pick on skate kids...
I'm not proud of it...

And, 11 stitches is a lot of stitches. I bet it bled hard and was a pretty big gash.

This is the kind of thing that happens when you go to events where rock is still alive and the merchandisers haven't landed yet.

meef - that's what I was thinking.

Medical bills, scmedical bills. A well placed letter from a lawyer will cause a check for pain, suffering, and incidentals to quickly be forthcoming from this band and their insurance company. Mortified or not, the stupid need to pay. With money.

I suppose that the band might not be throwing any more planks into crowds. Glad that your friend is OK. ...she was angrier about missing them than getting hit!She sounds like she's got some real "sand." Good attitude for life.
