Here's my poll.
Should we measure the size of this pile of BS in cubic kilometers or cubic miles?

I'm used to miles, but this forum does have people from many other countries on it. So they majority might be more used to cubic kilometers.

Or perhaps we should just weigh it instead, but where would we get a scale that big...... Maybe if we trucked it to a weigh station....

I wonder if my shoulder can take a shotgun with 1-hand.

Not being smart and proactive about all of the above is probably the biggest cause of injury that I know of. Regardless of "type" of exercise.

Well that's the part that is true. Who knows what drinking coffee in a body cast might do to your shoulders. I wouldn't want to try it.

I had an aunt and uncle take me shooting when I was a kid. A 12 gauge may bruise your shoulder a bit. It bruised mine just a little.

With appropriate technique (1) and shoulder prehab (black-burns, external rotations, press-ups etc) bench press should never be a problem...

I don't see how you can make such generalizations, that benching or dips is harmful to your shoulders. There are many variations of each exercise, to begin with. Secondly, poor form, lack of ROM, size of the ego, and plain stupidity would be better items for your poll.

Hmm ... what lacks shoulders worse?

A) Poor Form
B) Lack or ROM
C) Size of Ego
D) Plain Stupidity

I'm going to go with Answer C on this one, since C contributes so much to A, B and D.

skiing and falling at 40 miles per hour, resulting in the arm being bent back overhead until it pops out of the socket, like when you bend a drumstick off of a cooked chicken.

Now that you mension it ..... I once saw a guy in an MMA fight get caught in a kimura and refuse to tap. Got his shoulder completely dislocated. Meanwhile the referee stopped the fight, so he lost anyway. .... Good example of C causing D.
