    Crazy Story


    One of my managers has a mid-20s niece that was on a bus that got T-boned by another bus about a year ago. She has had dozens of serious surgeries and faces many more plus years of rehab. It's been a lot for her to handle, and last night it started raining on her birthday celebration in Central Park, and she simply snapped. Went berserk, and it took 6 policemen and EMTs to subdue her. She actually snapped a pair of handcuffs.

    I've heard these stories about mothers who lift a car off a pinned child, or the like, and always kind of discounted it. My manager said her niece turned into the Hulk.

    People do some pretty amazing things when the adrenaline is cranking.

    What was in the cake??

    I've read some articles on brain limiting body power output which was tested by using hypnosis. There was such an increase in physical strength while doing movements essentially while unconscious that some pro teams tried using hypnosis during games to boost performance.

    I feel for the many hurdles she has and is dealing with.

    On a humorous note, I love the Incredibl Hulk.

    We ride motorcycles, for safety sake.

    Best of luck to her.

    Went to OCS with one of the last Vietnam vets to go through (due to age limits). Very late in the conflict, he was riding in. Huey with four others when it was shot down by small arms. He helped or carried the others to a landing zone about a 1/4 mile away. Cobra gunships came in and fired up everything in sight, and they were extracted.

    .....And that's when they noticed he'd been shot right through his thigh. By the next day he was a mess, but he said he didn't feel a thing.
