    Hi friends. I don't usually post off topic stuff but I have come to like you
    all a lot. Right now I am a bit bummed out. I was the victim of a wayward
    easel of the artist's variety. I swear to you that it just jumped right out
    at me as I passed it and snagged the little toe of my left foot. It must
    have been really angry because it broke my toe. Now I'm stuck wearing a
    stiff soled shoe for a few weeks. What a pain! Thanks for letting me blow
    off a little steam. I promise I won't do it often. (That stupid easel!) ;)

    My 12-yr-old daughter did exactly that on the back door frame. It
    jumped right out at her as she ran through the door, and folded her left
    little toe right back along her foot. Even though she was only 12, I
    can't repeat what she said.

    My sympathies Cheryl. I did this a few years ago on the bedroom
    wardrobe. I'd been in hospital a few weeks earlier with two broken
    fingers after dropping a steel radiator on my hand and a few weeks
    before that after crashing into a concrete wall on my bike! When I got
    to hospital with my little toe sticking out at a right angle and
    explained to the staff, amazed to see me yet again, how I did it, they
    fell around laughing! So much for sympathy. :)

    My Big toe on my right foot had a fit of Shoe Rage a couple of years
    ago and for no apparent reason attacked a lawn mower that just didn't
    want to run that day.

    The resulting lawn mowing was much less comfortable in a similar stiff
    soled shoe.

    Perhaps it felt slighted about the way photography has changed the art

    Take care of your poor foot.

  7. This is typical of what I call the WTF factor - inanimate objects that tend
    to expend a lot of energy for no apparent reason. I'm sure it is part of the
    inspiration for shows about poltergeists.

    My own most recent, was my photography bag. It was rather small, but doable,
    and suddenly every time I leaned over the slightest, it would whirl around
    almost knocking the camera and tripod over. Finally one day, I was in some
    tall weeds trying for a close up, and the bag took off like a helicopter
    gone mad, rotating and spewing out lenses, filters, cleaner kits, and other
    important items in about a fifteen foot radius. Needless to say, I ended up
    re-buying stuff I could not find.

    So, I got a bigger bag that had a type of shoulder strap that was supposed
    to not slip. Since it was a bigger bag, I started carrying more stuff. Well,
    it worked until I tried the stunt of trying to travel along a rocky river
    bed and things were going fine as I climbed and hopped from rock to rock but
    after a half a mile, the bag decide it was a satellite and decided to whirl
    around every time I leaned or went from one rock to another.

    After the fall, it took me ninety minutes to get out of there by climbing up
    a near vertical incline covered in blackberries and poison oak to get to the
    highway 50 feet away.

    Now, I use a backpack to carry all my stuff.
