I was practicing wheelies on my motorcycle... crashed at about 35 mph ( which is relatively slow ) I had small fractures in my left hand, skin on my knee shredded, and partially torn mcl ( inner knee ligaments ). I had a helmet and leather jacket, so those parts were fine, but the jeans weren't enough to save the skin on my knee. I had some bandages and stuff to patch myself up.

As for the bike, the foot peg was stuck up, the shift pedal was bent inwards and un-usable while riding, and the bars were bent. So I put it into 2nd gear and rode home. It was only about 7 minutes away. Then I spent the next 3 weeks limping around.

Oh, I can hardly wait till spring to do some more wheelies

We had one of those big, floor-model insect zappers. The kind with the glowing blue bars that emit a dangerous electric hum.

Anyway, I reached between the guard wire of the outer cage while the zapper was on and grabbed a nice handful of glowing blue bars. My hand was numb for hours and it hurt like a b****.

I was taking out the trash a few weeks ago. While opening the can I hit my finger on it and cut myself. I know there have been worse but this is the most recent incident.

EDIT: Just remembered the time I was at a playground with my cousin who was on the swing set. For some random, stupid reason I ran out in front of him while he was swinging and got kicked in the head. That same day, my sister also hit her head on a jungle gym contraption and got hurt.

Yesterday I cut my thumb off approximately 2-3 mm from the tip while cutting my hair.

I was given a swiss army knife as a gift one year and shortly afterwards bought a headset for my xbox 360. The headset was inside one of those superhardened "you're never getting this out of here" plastic safety cases so I had to get it out with scissors, and naturally I decided that I should use the tiny "only suitable for cutting gauze" scissors on my brand new swiss army knife. I realized this was a bad decision around 15 seconds after my hand slipped and buried those tiny scissors a good half inch into my left hand, having spent the appropriate amount of time staring blankly at what I found to be a totally implausible situation. After I connected the dots I ran to the bathroom, dumped some iodine on it (which instantly made it exactly 10x more painful), and slapped some gauze on it. Now I just have a pathetic scar to remind me of how wily and dangerous those damn plastic containers are.

I tripped over a TV remote in my room and sprang my ankle pretty badly. Had to miss work, but luckily it was a Friday so I had the weekend.

For me it was burning myself. I was heating up some chicken nuggets in the oven. I noticed one fell of the tray, and like a dumbass I went to go pick it up. I ended up burning my forearm a little and now have a scar.

EDIT: I just remembered another dumb thing I've done. When I was like 10 or so, my friends were spinning me fast on one of those rolling chairs. They got me going too fast and I flew out of the chair and smacked right into the nearest wall.


Oh my I have a friend who did the EXACT SAME THING with the chicken nugget My sister gave me a concussion by spinning me on a rolling chair haha

but by far the dumbest injury I've had was diving in a pool that was a foot deep... I honestly have no excuse but to say I didn't know...but yeah I broke my nose and to this day I have a scar in between my eyebrows starting at the top and ending at the tip of my nose

EDIT: The more I think about it the more I remember... that one time I stapled my finger, stabbed myself in the thigh with a pencil, and gave myself yet another concussion by tumbling down the stairs/gymnastics etc.

That's a surprise. Here I thought I was the only one with a burn from chicken nuggets. I don't feel as dumb now. Jeez a concussion? That's crazy. When it happened to me, all my friends were laughing. I don't think they really cared it I had a concussion. I'm sure they didn't know what one was anyways.

That sounds like an extremely painful way to break your nose by the way...
