    I was wondering about the difference as well. Care to enlighten us on what makes them more dangerous? Are they harder? More inanimate? Easer to see?
    Well, you see, buldings are a very rare and vicious animal. They're a cross between a bulldog and a starling. So it's basically a dog with wings.
    However, being that starlings are so small, the wings aren't large enough to generate the lift required to get the bulldog portion off the ground!
    So the bulding lives it's life in a constant state of frustration; having wings yet lacking the ability to fly. That's probably why Nathan hit it with his quad. It just couldn't fly out of the way in time to avoid a collision.
    It also gets made fun of a lot by other animals.

    Thank you for all the kind words everyone.
    It means alot to me know that so many care
    I have received lots of texts and phonecalls wishing me the best.

    Here's an update;
    I crashed on saturday
    stayed in the Hospital until tuesday afternoon
    Home now and resting well
    my mom is coming down friday night to help out
    I am able to move around for short periods of time and get myself out of bed (quite an accomplishment!!)
    my right shoulder and chest are still extremely sore, as is my left knee
    I do my breathing exercizes to prevent pneumonia and get plenty of exercize going up and down the stairs to my room

    i have x-rays and a follow-up with my doc on tuesday to see how long it will be before I get to go back to work.
    Docs say 6 weeks to recovery , but i ain't down with that.
    thanx for keeping me & Michelle in your thoughts.

    Wow Nathan, I hope you get better quick, it really sucks to be down. My daughter flipped her quad a few months ago too. Luckily, after a drive to the emergency room and some X-rays, it was just a bad contusion. We are going to try to get her on a dirt bike instead.

    I will add you to my pray list...get well

    On a lighter side look at it this way...
    Now you can say you can hit the broad side of a barn

    I was actually very lucky.
    I avoided hitting a truck and hit the house instead
    The house ( actually a Real Estate office) will only be about $50 for repairs since the owners are friends with my wife's Real Estate office.
    If I woulda hit the truck, it would be much much more

    BTW_ my appt. got moved up to tomorrow morning, so maybe I can get released from captivity sooner

    I saw my doc today.
    He said my lung has healed and that I only had 3 broken ribs, not 4.
    I am healing well and am going back to work on the 8th of Sep (light duty)
    Disability only pays 60% - 70% of my regular pay, so I can't stay out longer.
    I go back on full duty on Oct 5.

    I also paid for the damages to the building, and am waiting on the Quad bill.
    that's really gonna hurt

    Here's a pic of the building I hit (from googlemaps)

    The red circle shows where I hit.
    Think how bad it would have been if I was to the right another 2 ft or so & hit the glass.

    It definately could have been worse going through that window. You must have Jedi reflexes if you race quads.

    So did you get back to light duty at work and what was that like? Doesn't sound like anything more than agony.

    Not back yet.
    The people that "work" at corporate are dragging their feet
    The main HR lady had Friday & today off.
    so...
    Nobody has processed my paperwork to give their ok to go back
    Hopefully tomorrow.
    On a more positive note- My hands have Floquil Light Blue on them at the moment.
