    ... nut sack. Amazing X-rays of a hip fracture from a motorcycle accident:

    Ouch. Femoral head (the ball) of the hip broke off and wound up in the scrotum.

    From the New England Journal of Medicine:

    "A 33-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department after a motorcycle accident. Clinical examination of the intubated patient showed a hard, swollen, bluish scrotum and an externally rotated and slightly shortened left leg."

    The bottom screw in image D looks like it's going all the way through the bone to the other side. Is that supposed to happen?

    Moral of the story: Don't ride a fucking motorcycle.

    My older brother got sideswiped by some dizzy bitch pulling out of a Sonic and was wheelchair-bound for two months with a pin in his femur. Scared my ass straight. Smallest thing I drive since is a four-wheeler.
