Yech.  Some of these made me cringe.  Well, lets see...  The most painful thing I can remember has to be the time I poured battery acid into my eye.  It was when I was ten or eleven.  Me and my older brother were playing and decided to head back inside, which involved going in through our garage.  My dad had left out a car battery he was working with(some of the details are a bit fuzzy, I got distracted rather quickly).  There were tubes coming out of the respective nodes(again, I don't remember why exactly, only that there were).  My brother, who was a bit taller than me(that's important), grabbed one of the tubes and looked down into it.  He started telling me about all the cool things he was seeing, compelling me to beg to have the tube as well.  Like a good brother, he handed it to me to look at.  Now, as I said, he was taller than me.  So instead of looking down into it, I had to look up.  There was some acid in the tube, which promptly found itself in my eye.  Now, I probably shouldn't have to tell you this, but it is a really bad idea to pour battery acid into one's eye.  It hurts.  A lot.  A quick, screaming trip to the hospital later and I got to enjoy the pleasure of doctors holding my eye open and flushing it out with a plethora of equally delightful solutions.  Luckily, I didn't suffer any permanent loss of vision, although my right eye now sees colors a few shades off from my left eye.

Ever been walking around barefoot and stepped on a thumb tack?

How about had a car trunk shut on your head?
... A car trunk with a bike carrier attached to it and two bikes strapped to the carrier....

Fall and smack your face into a wood-burning stove?

Angry cat bite your wrist?

I leave you with those thoughts.

Yes (actually, nails, stickers [not those wussy stickers, either, but those with an inch long prongs] roofing nails, thumb tacks, thornbushes [that's 2 inches] glass, etc),

yes (to the first part, it didn't have bikes on it, but I do still have a scar),
no,  (though I've fallen and smacked my face into my crib when I was a baby.  I still have the scar to prove that one, too.)

and yes (and a dog bite my leg, and rabbits scratch my arm and face, etc).

Is that all you can dish out?  I've taken it.  Multiple times.

I got my foot stuck in a trampoline spring once. Its kinda mentally scaring looking down at your foot and seeing a foot long spring in it. Fortunately it was only like the prong part. Couldn't really walk on that foot for a week. Also needed to get tetnes shot.

What can I say? I'm not accident prone.

Figured a few people besides me would have experienced those things, that’s why I asked.

Ooohhh… here’s one I forgot to add…

I had a really close call involving an exercise ball and my neck. You know, those GIANT rubber ones? I got hit over the head with it. I heard my neck go 'crunch'.

I mean it was an audible sickening 'crunch' noise and my whole body from the neck down went all tingly and weird. Doesn't seem like it caused any permanent damage.

I fell off of one before.  The only reason I didn't get hurt is because it was in physical therapy, so my therapist was there to catch me.

However, I did have a dog recently stand up in front of me and my knee made a similar crunching sound.  I now probably have to have surgery on it (though hopefully the MRI will show that it's not bad enough for surgery and can be worked back to health with physical therapy.  Though that's made harder by my back issues.  I definitely don't need another surgery though.)

The dog is fine, if you were wondering.  She has a hard head.  Meanwhile, I have already weak joints.  So it wasn't surprising that she made an already weak knee worse.

I can't walk today.  I've been in bed all day.  The pressure Ike is giving off is making all of my aches worse.  I may ask Dad to take care of rabbits/guinea pigs tonight...

I hurt myself daily, unfortunately.  I ran over the back of my foot (again) with the cart I use to pull water bottles into the kitchen.  It's trying to heal up.  The day after I ran over it again (double ouch, because the pain from before is coupled with the pain caused by the second hit.)

Owww... the back of a persons foot/ achilles tendon area is soooo sensitive, and so dratted easy to run over.

Here's praying your knee recovers quickly and without surgery.

*nod nod* I'm hoping.  I just need to make sure I don't overstress it until Dr Long decides what needs to be done.

It apparently was an injury that's put down a football star like within the last 2 weeks.  The Patriots, I believe, was the team.  A lot of football stars become retired because of such injuries, though.

When I was 11 I stabbed a garden fork through my foot... didn't even get a bloody wheelchair... It hurt, I couldn't move and It was all because me mate wouldn't lend me a spade for the afternoon...

Learn from my mistake... DO NOT DIG WITH A GARDEN FORK. It hurts...

A bunch of leaves jumped out and dripped me while I was running home from school today.

My hip and hand are banged up enough that I have to type with one hand, and I look like a zombie from the Thriller video when I try to walk. >.>

I didn't know you were in Milford, blackout. Cool.

Anywho, I haven't really had any bad injuries. Nothing hospital worthy, at least.

Eighth grade I smacked in the forehead with a rock. Still a bump and scar there where it hit.
Cut my thumb open in second grade while cutting broccoli. Damn you broccoli!
When I was about five, my dad was building a pickup, and I was playing around it. Sliced my knee open. And I still have the scar for that one.

Right now, I have all sorts of little scars and scratches on my hands from work.

Little 4 year old DA wandering around in his kitchen, while his dad is cooking. His dad goes to the bathroom, and little DA goes over to see what he was cooking. Looks good. But how is it so hot? Hmm. This requires further investigation. Oh, it's from the stove. Little DA, being the bright child he was, decided it's a good idea to put his entire palm on the stove. Well here we g-JEEBUS THAT'S HOT!

My stove is circular, with little rings going around it, so I had a white circle around my palm and fingers for a few years.

I just nearly choked on Dr Pepper.

The last time this happened, my sister and my friends were laughing cuz they thought I was teasing.  They didn't realize I was actually choking until I fell to my knees, clinging to the chair in front of me, and was nearly blacked out.

Back in second grade, I almost died from choking on some candy. Paramedics wouldn't have made it in time.

The only thing that saved me is that one lunch lady happened to have some CPR training.

Now, that school district offers free CPR training to all of its staff.

Which saved a kid about two years later.
