was 999 the one with michael burke presenting it? for some reason, i vividly remember just one episode, all about water/drowing.

Remember the javelin one, or maybe there was more than one? I can't remember how, but i recall someone being impaled on some iron railings. Have no idea how that came about. Micheal Burke, the voice of my safety neurosis...

999 used to scare the shit out of me, seriously that show caused way more nightmares than anything else. watching it before you go to bed to see people in fires, car accidents and god knows what was bound to do something to my fragile young mind.

I used to love that show so much. The one that sticks in my mind the most was the girl who got stuck between her and her neighbours house. There was a small gap, and she thought it would be fun to go through to her backgarden that way rather than through the house. Can't remember how they got her out though...

Haha! I remember that one! I'm pretty sure they actually had to carefully deconstruct part of the wall of her house and then pull her through.
I also have one that comes to mind where some guy got his leg mangled in a rotavator.

I remember that one too! 999 fucking scared me as a child. I remember one where a guy got stranded at sea for ages - he ended up constructing a water capturing machine from a coat.

I remember one where a man was rather careless with a chainsaw, and pretty much cut both his legs off.

That is rather careless.

Got woken up this morning by loud banging and sawing, realised it was in my flat, went out the to the hall to inspect and found 2 carpenters taking off and sawing down 3 bedroom doors. This was at half 8 in the morning, btw. By 08:45, they were taking my doors off the hinges and chucked me out of my bed. Still no idea what they're actually doing to the doors/who sent them, but I'm currently indulging in some carpenter chat with a cup of tea. Nice.

My morning has been unexpectedly pleasant. After having to pull out of a weekend break to Portugal due to being ill, I was in a pretty bleak mood. My mood was however lifted no end by a completely out of the blue and rather generous tax refund from the DWP for 455 quid! Amazing.

Don't ever watch Bizarre ER on BBC3 then, if 999 put you off! Especially not just before going to bed. The bits I saw of one episode before I couldn't take anymore was a guy who crashed his BMW and got a wooden spike impaled through his arse. Then there was another guy who'd slashed his arm open and his wife sewed it up before going to hospital. Finally there was a woman who's finger had got caught in a dog lead and it sliced the top of her finger off. It shows it in all the gory detail.

Probably for the best, if you'd gone to Portugal you might have got pig flu and we all know how serious that is.

2 days off work and some night nurse.

Yeah, I tried phoning the NHS Direct earlier and all I got was crackling.






I'm here all week!
