    Most English speakers refer to it as a plaster of Paris cast or plaster cast or 'cast' for short. So in your case a leg cast. You can also have an arm cast and even a body cast.

    The term comes from the art industry where casts or moulds are made for various things.

    In the UK a bandage for a cut is typically called a plaster no idea why.

    Cast is also the term used for movies and TV shows for the group of actors.

    Cast is also used for a ship setting sail, as in 'casting off'.

    You can also 'cast' something to someone.

    Also in when fishing you 'cast your line'.

    Because you know,English...

    It could never come to my mind that a 'cast' could be used to describe such a thing. Mould maybe, i was thinking of it, but cast, nope.

    And here in Bosnia among the other words for bandage we use plaster too.

    The weather here is completely crap. It was pretty warm over the weekend and now there's we have major gusts of wind and rain. Plus it's cooled quite a bit. Looks like winter is finally here. :P

    it's warm over here. Today we at least didn't get fog so this is nice. It's cloudy though.

    Wednesday will be a record of 73...beating the old mark on 63 for this time of year.

    I'm not itching for snow, but this warm weather reminds me that global warming is alive and well, sadly...

    Mission accomplished. Screen protector needed.

    Posted via Xperia Z3
    So I gave this to the GF early before the screen protector arrived. She's a Google user so I created a MSFT email account, downloaded them health app onto her note 5 and configured the app...all before I gave her the band. All she has to do now is pair it and start using it...

    I scored a win for Xmas with that.

    I'm in a love-hate realtionship...with Android Wear. I love both my 360 and my SW3. I hate the ambient light sensor on the 360 and I hate how impossible it is to finding the metal strap for the SW3.

    I swear, if I could take the SW3's TFT screen + GPS + chipset and drop it into the 360 while keeping the 360's design, HR monitor and the Qi, I'd be all set. The problem is that I want another round wat h and have no problem selling the Moto 360, except for the fact that the upgrades are overpriced. Too overpriced. Sigh...

    I'm at the hospital at the moment, waiting for traumatologist. I've got bloody 30 minutes to wait but i guess the good thing is that i already got my number, and i'm second one to go.
    I guess (and hope) this wil be my, by far, the shortest visit to a hospital.

    I'm not holding my breath. It's not that the platform is bad, but i have a hard time ponying up cash for a watch that'll get obsolete a lot more quickly than a phone would at the prices they're asking for Wear devices these days, frankly.

    I like what LG has done in the watch space. I just think Moto hit a home run with their design but the ambient light sensor placement is horrid.

    Kinda like "is there good government here in the US"?

    All things considered, that's a short wait in a hospital setting.

    At work, they're (MGMT) trying to do a time a time study to get patients in and out quicker. I want to yell at them to say "hire more staff", but that's the intelligent way to solve the problem...which they clearly won't do.

    I thankfully only have one more rent payment. I do however have many mortgage payments to make...

    I should plan something for 2016 but I haven't a clue as all my focus right now is on the house...

    This one was fairly short. I was there aroud 11:20 and had everything finished by 13:30.

    My last visit to hospital lasted from 9 to 14:00. Not so much of a good experience.
