    20:55, I've been in a cast for a month with a scaphoid fracture and I'm still looking at another 3 or so months of recovery. It's probably one of the worst hand bones to break because of how little blood flow it gets, making it take forever to heal. With that it's very easy to display small healing, and in turn can cause a need for surgery, which is very common. Just a little insight if anybody wanted it :).

    something they didnt mention here is the hardening of bones (which is a good thing) and the fact that most skaters and bmxers learn how to fall to take the least amount of impact in just one area.. i recently crashed my bmx down a regular set of stairs, no biggie.. just some blood.. five days later while i was just riding along on the street, my right foot (toes) hit the ground as i was pedaling and it sent me over the bike and i crashed hard (both knees, both feet, shoulder, chest and head).. however, since im used to crashing, i knew what to look for and i decided i was good enough to keep on going.. that is, keep biking to the doctors meeting i was about to have.. as for the hardened bones... well that is something you build up over time and it will keep you at least somewhat safer.. think of it as a fighter who kicks a lot.. if you were to kick another persons shin, neither of you trained, you could both break your bones.. if a muai thai fighter were to kick you however, only you would break your bones.. im 36 and have been doing this for over 30 years now, never broken a bone.
