Breaking the silence
: : Biff and me snapped our quadriceps tendons and as we can see, Biff is not in the least impressed by his injury.
: *** I was lucky, as my tendon did not snap all the way. I tore my quad tendon about 25mm (close to an inch). So, medically was a #2 tear. A #3 tear is full separation, which must hurt like crazy!! Is that what you had, Bernhard?

My tendon didn't snap all the way, neither. So I guess it would also only qualify as a #2, although it did hurt like crazy. I can't tell how many mm exactly, but it was almost completely torn. I should have gone to a doctor immediately, but for one month I thought it was just a severely pulled muscle. And then it took another month till I finally gut my surgery.
