OMG! Sounds like you are lucky to have survived that!

that's the ultimate nightmare for me, and I'm going to ski in 2 weeks...

Sounds like a few of my exploits. The most memorable one occurred on a beautifully sunny day. I was speeding along, helmetless, on my bike. While making the routine entry to the beach, which just happened to be at the bottom of very large hill, I spotted my cousin's roaming Irish Setter. I applied the brakes, but it was too late. She also spotted me, but instead of moving out of the way, she cowered on the road, and became the speed bump from hell. I just remember rocketing into the air, and landing in a miserable heap. Fortunately, neither of us was badly injured--I had the biggest bruise on my arse for about a month, but that was it.

Aside from that near-miss, the worst injury I've had is a bad ankle sprain, from playing basketball. I did the same one twice, in back-to-back summers, which royally sucked.

At 6 I hit my chin on a pool edge that was broken, and had to get 6 stiches.
At 9 my sister threw a very large and heavy glass ashtray at me and hit me right between the eyes, I have a scar on the bridge of my nose.
Also my other sister hit me in the forehead with a metal mace, knocked me the fuck out.
Nice little scar there.

I was in a car accident when I was 13, my head hit something (the dash maybe?),
but blood was splattered around the car as it was spinning, and then we were hit again, and it bashed me against the door pretty good.
I have a scar on my left eyebrow that looks awful.

When I was 14 I pulled a stuck door shut too hard and didn't move my fingers in time, the tip of my left ring finger is gone, and a chunk of the middle was torn pretty bad.

Plenty of surgeries for various things, but the most painful is one that happened during a molestation at age 8 by a family member.
His 'actions' caused 2 discs in my lower back to dislocate and protrude, and I have been in pain everyday since.
(Since I never told anyone, I never received care for it.)


Anyone ever had a cardboard paper cut?...
Excrutiating!

(re-reading this, the head injuries should pretty much grant me immunity from responsibility for any of my actions thereafter )

that is some scary shit. i've been a few accidents and surprisingly never been hurt. about 2 yrs ago me and my car took a 120mph dive into another car. i pushed the other car about 40-50ft before coming to a stop, hitting 2 other cars and ripping their back ends off on the way. guess what? not a scratch. got right out and walked away.

I was talking about this thread with my sister and she remembered when I got my hand slammed in the car door. Apparently my screaming and the blood and bruised hand of mine gave her nightmares and she's never forgotten that. I had forgotten it till now!

step1: get a car
step2: pick a target
step3: get it up to 120mph
step4: make sure your target is parked at an angle lower than the one your traveling on.
step5: lose control of your car.
step6: enjoy the crash.

if done correctly then your car should look like this.

Twisted my left ankle pretty good when I was seven. Had a cast for two weeks. Then I was supposed to take it easy and put some ice on it. Did I do that? Nope. Biked around, skated around...Since then, I'm always twisting it and pain everyday. Doctors don't want to operate since I'm only 17

Have trouble with the other ankle too...busted both my knees doing sports. Crutches are my best friends. Played hockey tonight and hurt my left knee doing this weird splitting movement

Worst must be my concussion from a hockey game. I was just standing there and this girl skated right into me. Passed out for about five seconds...got up, continued playing for two months before going to the hospital.

I always get hurt, but I never stop
