It wasn't a broken bone, but we were under the dining room table and she was telling my fortune.

This entailed a lighted match whilst telling me how my life would pan out and so she spoke without taking a breath so by then the match was burning her finger

so she stubbed it out on my chin

When I think of the thing we got up to as kids I wonder how we managed to survive. I remember once tying a bolt on a piece of string (not a little bolt either) and swinging it around. I can't remember if the string broke or I let go but my brother was scared for life. It got him in the middle of his forehead.

Until you know what you are talking about little_tata it would be better that you don't post at all.

Broken arm - age 11 scrapping with kid up the street.
Broken leg - age 13 - at Derby Street baths - slipped on the darned metal steps and fell backwards, trapping leg behind the steps.

An incomplete break and the bone is bent is a greenstick fracture and it is still broken. this fracture is mainly found in very young children.

fractured wrist - slipping on ice .... aged 7
fractured ankle - jumping in the 'mosh pit' at a gig...first ever concert aged 12
fractured elbow - roller blading....aged 10

So.......according to my medical records they were fractures (I'm not a Doctor, nor a bone specialist, as I'm sure you certainly are).

However, a friend of mine says that you can indeed fracture a bone (as you rightly said as a 'greenstick' fracture), or break the bone - where the bone is completely snapped.


.....by the way, my friend also said alot of the terminology used in your post is out of date - she is an orthopaedic surgeon, so she should know.

Never broken a bone until last year. In a motorcyle crash in Germany.
5 broken ribs, broken collar bone, and cracked shoulder blade. Just had a steel plate put in the collar bone. the broken ribs were the worst. :)

Yikes, Cushy, nothing like making up for lost time! Let's hope this is your lot all in one go. Sounds horrible.

Tell your fictitious orthopaedic surgeon friend little_tata that its rude to read over other peoples shoulders and tell her those terms are not out of date. As they are as current today as they were during my 16 year nursing career.

Today a lot of new migrants who do not have a gist of the English language are said to have or rather talk Fractured-broken English.

:lol: Is it because they don't want to bother learning it or are they just BONE idle. :lol:

....*sigh*......yes dear :roll:

(Just a small question; When someone has a different opinion or view from yourself, why do you become so incredibly rude?)
