    The object is to not fall off of your bike

    You'll fall less and less with practice. We all have our battle scars.

    The real icing on the cake was the $2800 bill for the MRI (after insurance)

    Slightly off topic but...MRI related...I work for a hospital. I once saw an MRI being taken of the spine of a homeless heroin addict. There was infection all along his spine which he got from sharing dirty needles. He had bugs on his body too. That was interesting.

    Eww...

    However...
    I was taking opiates (prescription) for several days before the MRI and I was all backed up... I asked for something to help me out while I was at the hospital. While I was in the machine it hit me!
    The tech asked if I could wait 15 more min... I couldn't!

    I did manage to make it down the hall to the bathroom though!

    Thats the last time I take opiates unless the pain is unbearable!

    Opps. That's inconvenient. If you talk to the MRI techs they will show you the hammer or mallet they keep around to break the glass separating their work room from the MRI. Many MRIs utilize liquid helium to keep the magnet cool and super charged. If the helium gets released from the MRI into the room due to malfunction or improper venting, the patient will suffocate if the door isn't immediately opened or the glass broken. In your case, however, if the opiates kicked in any faster there might have been another reason to break the glass!

    I would hope they have a rubber mallet and not a hammer!

    Steel hammers and giant magnets don't play well

    Take a look at this vid!
