Dummy…that would be me.
I did one of those things that you aren’t supposed to do in physics, which is drop a kilogram on your foot from the lab table. It is the argument for why you should never wear open-toed shoes in physics lab. Which doesn’t really make sense unless your concern is really to avoid spraying blood all over, since most shoes won’t actually protect you from injury:
I think I may have a broken toe. Though I am intrigued by the unusual green color on the toenail on the “second little piggy,” I am also excited by the deep purple of the “third little piggy’s” bruise.
Aren’t you glad you read my blog? You totally needed to see that photo.
My students were very excited to see me hop up and down and yell. Quite the diversion. Sigh. I had actually taped the kilogram onto a WHEELED cart. Then set it down on the table in an orientation that allowed it to roll right off the table onto my foot. Aaarrgh!
