OUCH! Do NOT look if prone to fainting!!!

Thought this picture would be ok to post - it's perfectly armless......

Apparently it was a vet in a zoo in the Far East - thought the Nile croc was sedated. They recovered his arm and it has been reattached. They shot the croc twice - couldn't find any bullet holes though!!!

maybe the croc thought he was an arm-a-dillo
being a vet is a wristy business
arm-wrestle me now human!

How about this?

"These X-ray images show the leg of a chair embedded into the eye socket of a Melbourne teenager who miraculously survived a random attack outside a city nightclub earlier this year.

The images of teenager Shafique el-Fahkri at the Royal Melbourne Hospital were taken as a team of five surgeons prepared for the complex three-hour operation that would save his life and his eye.

After leaving intensive care, Mr Fahkri spent a month in hospital and today has 95 per cent of his sight back.

The former Xavier College student, now 20, said that his eye remained very blurry, his body was weak and his neck was stiff after the incident. "I feel all right at the moment, actually, but I am too weak for work," he said in a raspy voice, a consequence of the chair leg passing through his throat.

But he holds no grudges against 20-year-old {}, who yesterday pleaded guilty to a charge of negligently causing serious injury on January 21."
