Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  8. When i broke my arm in a mountain bike crash i was convinced it was fine, i could still move my fingers as well. There was just a little swolen bump on the underside, oh and it bloody hurt! Still managed to ride the bike 6 miles back to the car (one handed), went to A&E, x-ray etc. They put a temporary cast on it and i had to come back the next day when the swelling had gone down for the real cast.

  10. Just when I think I've read every question about every possibilty of every eventuality on every subject in the world on ARRSE someone pops up with a blinder! Thanks mate, lovely way to end the weekend. :wink:
  11. more importantly - was it broken?
  12. I broke my arm in three places once.

    When I saw the Docter he said I should stay away from those places.

    Tommy Cooper,
