...bad day. (Not for squeamish!)

My brother dislocated his elbow several times when he was little (4 or 5 years old). Our pediatrician put it back in the first time, but the second time it popped was on a weekend, so they went to the emergency room. After waiting for more than an hour, Matt was thirsty. My mom bought him a soda, and had him hold it in both hands to bring the can to his mouth. The motion popped his elbow back in place. After that, Matt just got soda whenever his elbow popped out. Understandably, this made his sisters jealous.

Oi. Did it bend back as far as in that picture? It seems incredibly painful. Although you're remarkably limber as well, so maybe your family has a genetic predisposition to flexibility.

Jay posted a link to this the other day without a warning and got this icon for it. So at least I knew enough to not click your link. ;)
