Passing a kidney stone is said to be one of the most painful processes a person can experience, including child birth. Don’t believe me? Just ask Cosmo Kramer about it. So when Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a kidney stone this week, he was understandably looking for any possible distraction. That included live-tweeting while attempting to pass the stone. Cuban first mentioned the stone on Wednesday morning. Kidney stones are no fun.If this one pops out in one piece I’m either going to get it bronzed or sell it on eBay #pukinglikeaftermyfirstbeer — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 18, 2012 Cuban went on to retweet a few music-related items before resuming to tweet about his kidney stone about 12 hours later. Kidney stones are no joke..its good when im doubled over because that means its moving, right.. #twitterpaindistraction — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 19, 2012 What should I name the little f*cker ? #nameCubanskidneystone.#moredistractionspleas — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 19, 2012 I’d gladly trade this kidney stone for an alien probe.. — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 19, 2012 Tell Em I’m doing this stone grandpa style.No really, …. #stuffyouthinktryingtopassakidneystone — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 19, 2012 Cuban shut down his Twitter for the night after that tweet, and likely endured an extremely painful evening. On Wednesday morning, he was back to tweeting technology-related items like usual, until he finally had a breakthrough: The kidney stone is dead.!!!! Thx to all for humoring me this morning during a painful time. it really helped take my mind off of things — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 19, 2012 Between live-tweeting passing a kidney stone to throwing virtual haymakers at Donald Trump, Cubes certainly keeps his Twitter account entertaining. We’re glad he was able to pass the stone, and we certainly do not envy what he went through. That must have been an agonizing process.
