    wish i had a camera to take a photo of them...i just took off all the strapping tape. There is no skin on the left hand....just two large red raw spots across the palm.....then on my right hand my index and middle finger have gone white where the tape was, and the skin is soft and underneath it's grey and raw with specs of blood (like a large blood blister). and there's now a hole in my right leg.
    For the last time that can't be good for you! If you hurt yourself like that you might end up doing something drastic one day and end up not being able to row at all. Please please please stop overworking yourself - look after yourself! You're supposed to be smart - you know it's bad for you!

    GRRRRRRR WILLA!!!! You don't need to feel pain in order for it to be classed as "hurting yourself"! Whether you feel pain or not it's still not good for you! Why on earth would you have blood though by rowing?

    Just don't overwork yourself, look after yourself will you?

    oh God, you're the person who tells all your friends that "you don't need another drink, you've had enough" and "you really shouldn't go to the cinema - you have a test," aren't you? :rolleyes:

    I didn't tell you to stop rowing. I told you to look after yourself better. And if you can't do both at once then yes you should stop rowing. But you CAN do both at once so I don't see why you're not doing it!!!!

    And Platinumki - no I'm not someone who tells people to go home cus they have a test! - although I would remind them it... :rolleyes: hey I want my friends to actually pass their exams and a good friend gives good advice - not "yeh go out get drunk even though your finals are tomorrow!"

    Yeh I know that. It's the consistency of his not looking after himself in rowing that I'm worried about. Either way you're not supposed to draw blood in sports!

    Although it's not like he'd stop rowing - and I don't see why he should stop rowing. I just want him to look after himself. Is that so bad?

    That's evil. That's more evil than getting your assisstant to do all the boring experiments and then analyse the results.

    If that's all you are worrying about, then I suggest you go to lectures with him. That way, you can be even more worried.

    Nice...though Iris, you really shouldn't worry, all boaties (myself included) have blisters on their hands, though I've never burst mine because I tape them very very well. As long as he keeps them clean they'll be ok and hopefully will heal into calluses so it won't happen so much any more. The hole in your leg though - what's with that?

    Mmm...Shuai, Will and I have 9 o'clock lectures 6 days a week. Shuai and I get a break from 10am-11am, and then two more lectures from 11am-1pm if it's a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday, 'cause we don't do Chemistry.

    Err...I haven't been for a while, no. King, Norman and Winskel gave out pretty comprehensive notes, so I've been reading those in the comfort of my own room.

    I go to the 9 o'clock lectures sometimes, but Worster's so boring! His voice is like audio anaesthetic. He looks scary on his webpage as well.

    I kind like Worster for some reason. He's voide is thousands of times better than Ansorge. But you should go to Norman's lecture though. He's funny, and so is King.

    "People come in 3 sexes, male, female and convertable" King quoting someone else.
