Worth Reading: 02/08/13

A broken collarbone forces Patrick to get desperate, and literally turn Worth Reading into a pile of links.

In case you didn't hear, while biking home on Thursday, I hit a rather large pothole at full speed, flipped off my bike, and broke my collarbone on my left shoulder. I shouldn't be out of the office for too long, but I'm definitely going to be knocked out of commission for a few days, thanks to minor surgery. If I had a copy of my x-ray, I'd post it. I should remember to do that when I'm at the doctor again.

The easy way out of this would be to put off Worth Reading until next week, but I'd already collected a huge dump of links to share with you guys. Rather than scrap everything I'd been gathering this week, Worth Reading is going to ditch being a fancy set of links and, instead, actually be a huge dump of links.

Enjoy.

What kind of worth reading is this? These aren't even clickable links.

Why even do this at all, just fucking rest

Edited by SirOptimusPrime

Fair enough. Hopefully that shit heals within the month and there's no nerve damage!

... yay for positivity.

EDIT: Fuck, they're all clickable links now. I knew I hated this guy.

I broke my collar bone when I was young, it sucked. Hope you get better soon Patrick, it took me at least a month to fully recover.

Posted by johnsonic7

Sorry to hear that. I wish you a swift recovery, Patrick.

Posted by themangalist

This is the worst, but also the best. Hope you're doing better!

Posted by Kaowas

Sorry to hear that you broke your collarbone, man. That's a rough one to break. I guess we can add Worth Reading to stuff that nothing can stop now.

Hope you start feeling better, Patrick!

@patrickklepek: Maybe this will cheer you up. Although maybe laughing will make it worse... Oh well, hope you get better!

My pops broke his left collarbone in a very nasty accident where he broke his neck and they didnt notice his collarbone was broken when they put the halo on him... so afterwards when it healed it had a huge stump towards the center where it meets up with the other collarbone.

Posted by MattGrant

I love how it takes Patrick breaking his collarbone for people to be nice to him. In all seriousness, feel better duder.

Edited by Waffley

Patrick, you put in so many great links but completely missed murdered.com. Great work nonetheless, and sorry to hear about your accident. Take as much time as you need, and I hope this cheers you up!

Also I can't actually spot a Skate 3 link in there but the header image reminded me that anyone who loves watching ragdolls do hilarious/bizarre/buggy things needs to watch HelixSnake's and his fellow Skate 3 players' videos.

Take as much time as you need. Actually take more than that if you want.

Posted by wemibelec90

Very nice of you, Patrick. Never expected to see Worth Reading this week and am almost appalled that you felt it necessary to post it all. Still, thanks for taking the time.

I wish you a speedy recovery.

Posted by Video_Game_King

This cannot stand. Community: everybody summarize one link. Anybody who chooses an article must also choose a quote to go with it.

Patrick, I like your spirit on this one. In fact, I admire the hell out of it. Get better, then kick that pothole's ass.

Posted by BeachThunder

That video is amazing. The clip with the barrels was hilarious.
