What happened to the forum for...?
House of Cards 313 - Chapter 39 postponed
House of Cards
Hey everybody, as you've probably noticed, Jim's been sick all week. He can't get it up for our final podcast today. We'll have it out Monday instead.
Get well soon, Jim!
All the nightmares came today, and it looks as though they're here to stay...
Shun Fujimoto went onto win gold in the '76 Olympics, even with a broken knee. Just sayin... for comparison.
Fujimoto continued to compete in the team event right
after breaking his knee during the floor exercise. He scored 9.5 on the
pommel horse and 9.7 on the rings with a broken knee, dismounting from
the rings from eight feet above ground and keeping his balance after
landing on his feet. He "raised his arms in a perfect finish before
collapsing in agony".
The dismount worsened his injury, dislocating his broken kneecap and
tearing ligaments in his right leg.
Nothing says 'This situation is serious' like a corpse on the floor.
This did however end his career and nearly crippled him for life as I understand it.
"Later, when asked whether he would do what he did again, he replied frankly, "No, I would not.""
We want Jim to keep podcasting so we'll just put up with these postponements ;)
Feel better soon Jim!
I would have dragged the mic over to Jim's bed and forced him to podcast! You have to assert dominance A.ron!
Jim....get well soon!
That likeness is uncanny.

Yeah yeah so he dies and turns into a zombie, that's no excuse for not podcasting. You can just keep him chained up in the shed out back and bring him in for recordings like some sort of zombie podcast gimp.

Feeling much better today. Ironically, I sounds worse but we'll be back to form tonight. Thanks for all the memes, everyone.
