Justified


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Whew!! I really thought that sentence was going to end a little differently! :shock:

Marlow's imagination may be better than my true story. :)

People lose arms all the time in equipment/farm accidents without dying.

Yeah - I forget how often it happens in war too. :(


I'll have to ask my ER-doc buddy next time I see him at a hockey game, but I'm guessing the critical difference here is that all those war/farm survivors have one thing in common that Quarles didn't: a tourniquet applied fairly quickly (and perhaps also some collateral damage that seals off blood vessels). And many of those losses, I would also surmise, start out as "manglings" that are beyond surgical repair, so the actual amputation is done subsequent to that decision.

I just can imagine a clean-cut wound as far up the arm as his wouldn't lead to a relatively quick bleed-out if left unattended.

Hand amputations are all too common in parts of Africa. Many survive them even though the artery is the same one cut when someone suicides. Presumably a tourniquet is applied ASAP.

Quarles wasn't a wrist-job though; it was mid-forearm, no?

Good question. When Limehouse chops it off, it definitely looks like it's below the elbow. But in the following scene where Quarles is reaching for the arm his suit arm appears to end above the elbow.

So just for giggles, I went back and reread the original short story from which Justified was crafted, Fire In The Hole. As w/ all Elmore Leonard, a great read. And I see that Leonard's latest, just out, is Raylan.

Which leads us to the question, is it true to the first book or the TV show? That's a major question, given that in the book Boyd dies, Arlo was dead years earlier and Ava is a chubby brunette.

Less than a week until Raylan & Co return. Here's a look ahead at this season.

SWEET! My favorite part of the whole show is that no matter how redneck, backwoods, uneducated, and ignorant the characters are, they all speak with with Shakespearean eloquence and sharp wit! :wink:

Tonite the marathon starts! 13 episodes to watch between now and Wednesday night's tape-delay of the season debut.

This is one of the few series worth doing that. Makes for a great guilty-pleasure orgy.

remember when Detroit Mumford made a fortune a cuople of decades back? Eddie Murphy wore one of their t-shirts in Beverly Hills Cop. I even had one because my ex was living in Michigan at the time and sent it along.

I seem to recall there was a national-class quartermiler from Mumford... ???? (talk about getting off-topic!)

what a productive weekend! All 13 episodes out of the way (don't worry, it didn't take 13 hours: at an average of 42 minutes per ep, was only 9.1 hours :-)
