I have scar on the back of my right hand when I accidently left my hand under a empty water tank that could hold 200lbs. The only reason I have scar is because I wouldn't stop picking at it!

The other predominant scar i have is on my right knee. I split my knee open when I was 3 on a rock at my sister's softball game. There was a lot of blood! Don't ask me when I chose to fall on a rock but I had to get stitches

fascinating stuff.

i too am riddled with scars (emotional and phyiscal, just like the rest of us):

chicken pox scars on my temples (i was 6 months old, i didn't know better)

a lump on the right side of my head from when i fell and knocked myself unconscious on a big patch of ice in front of the mall when i was 17

and two-interrelated scars: i had mono and was deathly ill when i was 19, to the point that my spleen ruptured in my sleep. ambulance, sirens, yada yada yada... to make a long story short, i now have a foot and a half long scar down my stomach (anybody got a longer one? ). i also have a scar on my right ankle from when the nurses were trying to get me on an I.V. and they couldn't find a vein. the freaky part is that i was awake while they were digging at my ankle and i didn't feel a thing. shock does amazing things to the human body.

also, various stupid scars on my legs because i have still not mastered how to shave my legs without gashing my knee, my ankle, etc.

I have a few that you can really notice.

When I was younger this huge wooden sign that was not properly held up fell on me and I had to get stitches in my face and all. . .so now I have this curved scar-indent there but since I wear glasses it's hidden. . .that's the main scar I have.

I have a small one on my chin from walking into a coffee table when I was little, a small one on my thumb from a cut and then on my abdomen from the appendectomy I had when I was 18 (I had a top notch plastic surgeon close it and it's amazing compared to others I've seen. Mine is a tiny, thin white line, barely visible, no longer than an inch).

head, thorax, and legs.

- scar above my right eyebrow
- scar on my right eye (this and the above are from forceps)
- scar on my left cheek

- scar on my upper chest from getting some precancerous skin removed.

- scar on my left and right knees. it could be from falling and skinning my knees during recess when i was six, or it could be from getting stung by a nest full of hornets. i don't remember which one. maybe both?

Youse are all a bunch of klutzs!

I forgot a scar on the back of my right hand from when my new 6 week old Kitty scratched me. He only died last year age 17 or 18.

I forgot the scar on my right wrist where I was stung by a bee and the doctor didnt remove the poison sac. 3 days later the sac exploded inside my arm and I had to have all the sac bits removed.

I too have a swimming pool scar on my chin.

I have one on the top of my head, one on my right pinkie and one on my right wrist from when I was born (I was two months premature and when they were trying to stick me with a needle for some procedure, they missed).

Then I have one on my right elbow from an accident at work.

And one under my chin from when I was five and learning to skate. I landed face first on the ice and split my chin open.

Let's see, the worst scar I have is on my knee. Without being too graphic, I pretty much tore the whole thing open, down to the bone. And this is the censored version.

Total stitches:15

I also have some pretty good scars on my shoulders and back from a bicycle accident. I ran straight into an oncoming bicyclist. And the really bad part is, I crossed the road to do it. I still don't know what the hell I was thinking.

Total stitches: 7

And finally, I've got a scar on the underside of my chin. I slipped trying to get out of a pool by pulling myself out of the water. Seems like a pretty common injury. Maybe that's why they tell you not to get out of a pool like that. Never stopped me.

Total stitches:3

And these are the only ones that required stitches.

Um, I checked everything b/c I have chicken pox scars all over. Besides those, I have one on my left middle finger (cutting grapefruit), my left arm (cutting cheese), my left leg (cutting athletic tape).

I don't remember what a thorax is but I'm sure I've got a scar there.
