Latarjet bone graft.

Basically one side of the "dish" of my joint has broken away and dissolved, and needs replacing. Relatively common operation I hear. Here is a good comparison of my good and bad sides.

Looks like a real improvement over the old style Bankart procedure. Good luck with it!

You might have a "Rocketry Problem" if you have been stopped multiple times by law enforcement due to the 1/3-scale "Patriot" missile strapped to the top of your Ford Fiesta.

You might have a "Rocketry Problem" if the motor for the 1/3-scale "Patriot" missile produces more horsepower than your Ford Fiesta.

And you absolutely have a "Rocketry Problem" if you actually know a math formula for converting Maximum/Total Impulse in Newtons into Horse Power.

Or maybe just this.
I'm in for the rocket road rally!

When updating your inventory list, you trap yourself in the basement.......
This is from 2016 - I have more now.......

When someone posts a pic like this and you think "wow, you have space to walk in your basement?!?" 😁

Regardless, looks really awesome to me! :D

You need to build. That's an amazing amount of kits. Over 100? 150?
was 464 at that time if I recall. Now just about 500.....
But I did build over 50 rockets since then to reduce the pile.


Wait - I built 50+, but the pile still grew by 35 in 4 years? Maybe I do have a problem......

Wow. I've got some catching up to do.
You've got a serious problem if your goal is to achieve the point at which others think they have a problem. Akin to saying "You drink a bottle of vodka every night? Wow. I've got some catching up to do." ;)

I now do this with rockets because I learned to do it with my firearms.
I learned it FIRST with the firearms! Now that I'm retired on disability and the wifey is unemployed due to the Wuhan Flu epidemic destroying her job position, I only need to do it with rockets! ;)

I hope you're not over 12-14 years old, because it's gonna take a LIFETIME to build all of that!!! 😂 😂 😂 :oops:

You know you have a problem when you have 3 bedroom house in only one bedroom is usable, The other 2 bedrooms are for sleeping rockets.🚀
Or.
When your house starts on fire you tell the fire department to bring marshmallows and hot dogs.🌭
