What were your most serious/painful/abnormal injuries?

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

I also have long scar my back from when I tried to go underneath a fence when I was a kid.

I also broke my thumb with a hammer once.

I swallowed a washer and had to go to the hospital... but it passed through... and I didn't have to get a surgery or anything.

A washer is a seal used in taps and other water outlets to keep the water from leaking out.

Wait, how did you swallow a washer?

*blink**blink* Washer as in one of those round things you put around a screw before you put the nut on...

^ That.

My sister and I found it... and I put it in my mouth... and it tasted good (I like metallic things :D) And... I swallowed it... heh. *nervous grin*

Washer it is! I've heard of instances of batteries landing up in coke bottles...those ought to taste metallic too. (Better not swallow the battery as well as the coke, birdy, or you'll be like Shinji in the Puchi Eva short)

You gotta be kidding me you swallowed that! If I swallowed that, I'd be like a poor dolphin trapped in a net. *Gulp*

Worse than a dolphin trapped in a net is a shark trapped in a net. Sharks die if they don't keep moving, since they have no muscles to force oxygenated water through their gills.

Ahem...any other awful injuries? I vaguely remember getting hit in the eye by a burning incense stick when I was four...that hurt like hell.

Erm... let's see...
When I was in 3rd grade some kid (who had been stapling things to the wall) tripped over my leg and smashed the stapler into it... It just stabbed me, though... but it hurt... And my teacher told me to shut up and stop crying because it was "just two holes" in my legs... heh... I hated her.

I used to fall down the stairs a lot when I was little. I remember it too... just falling down them... tripping, and landing on at the bottom on my ass, head, arms... anything...

I sprain my foot in gym class while skipping (I'm afraid of skipping now) and I walked on it for two weeks without telling my mom that it hurt every time I stepped on it. (If you don't believe me, ask Shiro... he was one of the people who kept bitching at me to go to the doctor for it). Yeah... that was annoying... heh

I cracked a toenail on a soccer ball once... and it bled EVERYWHERE. my god, I didn't know toes had that much blood in them! :(

When ever I play sports I get hurt. Whether it's a basketball in smacking my head, tripping over a hockey stick, getting someone's sharp little boy knee in my thigh... it ALWAYS happens... :( I hate balls. (lol)

I had something similiar happen. I fell off something and landed on my feet. The shock went up my body and kind've hurt, but I didn't pay any attention to my feet. Anyway, that night I noticed one of my toenails looked weird, I touched it and couldn't feel it and it kind've... moved when I touched it. My toenail had ended up coming off, it didn't really hurt, just felt weird and bled.

I've had a lot of painful injuries, I don't know which was the most painful though.

I had friction burns on my man vegetable when i was 13 im not explaining but lets just say you get just a little horny at the start of puberty.

Aside from that i almost took out my eye running with keys on gravel when i was 3, never found out if it was the gravel or the keys which gave me the scar.

Oh and stupidly big blisters while i was doing my bronze and silver Duke of Edinburghs awards.

I have yet to fracture any bone in my body.. except maybe a toe or two at random intervals kicking things and tripping over other things.

There was a 3 or 4 year stretch in my childhood where we had to take me to the ER immediately before summer vacation, though, including one year with the car loaded with camping gear and canoe on top, etc.

That year, I was standing on the front bumper, in T-shirt, shorts, and runners, helping my father tie the canoe down, and I slipped off the bumper.. the metal license plate bracket caught the inside of my shin and tore out a piece of meat about 1/4" wide by 1/4" deep by 2" long.. nothing to be done except patch it up (nothing to stitch back together, more or less) and let it heal. I still have a scar.

Another year I got a bike handlebar up the nose, sort of. Know those streamers kids used to put on the end of handlebars, poked into the rubber handgrips with metal key-like fasteners? I was moving a bike into the garage, cleaning the yard up before we went on vacation, and tripped, ramming my face into the streamer key-fastener thing. Where my left nostril meets my face, I have a scar from the cut that nearly split me right open there.

I also had a burn injury about 10 years ago, working in a ski hill kitchen. Our kitchen was 1 story above the loading dock where the little dumpster that holds all the grease/oil was situated. I had been changing the oil in the deep fryers and had a 10 gallon metal pot full of oil which I stupidly didn't bother to let cool before I moved it. The pot was insulated pretty well, but I slipped on some ice on the outside stairs. In an effort to get the scalding hot oil away from me, I flung it forward, where it bounced off the wall of the building and splashed all over me. I got into ice and running water pretty quick and had only 2nd degree burns on my forearms, but one spot on my right forearm burned deep enough that it got a little hole and scarred over.. to this day I can still 'feel' temperature differences in that particular spot first, over all other parts of my exposed skin.

On top of all that, having been a firefighter for the past 17 years, I've managed to avoid serious injury in that career too, knock on wood :)

Not all sharks, just the species which very unfortunately tend to get caught in drift nets.

I also once had my left foot's toenail cracked and it bled. It happened while I was reading a book on my bed, when I suddenly jerked my left foot forward. I then heard a sharp "crack!" Apparently, my toenail had been entangled with a one of the loose threads hanging out. My sudden movement had snapped the toenail in half.

I discovered that my toenail was bleeding rapidly, and the toenail was cracked severely. I have to admit, the pain was not that awful, because most of the damage was done to the toenail itself, not the nerve connected parts. However, it was still quite painful enough for me to flinch and gasp a little whenever the pain intensified. :3

That reminds me of this time when I was 5 (maybe) when I slammed my finger in a door while walking into a house, and my finger nail (Left ring finger nail to be exact) swelled up, and a few days later it fell off. It looked hella nasty, but within a month or so, it was back to normal.

Recently, I have been encountering slight chest pain...whenever I'm bending over and using my chest muscles to hold my weight whilst in that position. However, I can cross out heart pain, lung pain and rib pain.

Not sure this is much of an injury for my chest, but I have been running a bit too much during the week.

It's love pain, You're sad that you'll never get any love from either gender and your heart has shrunk, causing pain. :thumbsup: I'm just giving you shit lately haven't I?

Wait till you get bad acne, it supposedly hurts to smile or move any facial muscles. But that's if it's really bad.

Recently, my hands have been going through shit. It all started when my friend clipped my finger with a nail on a board. Then I cut the back of my hand on a table. Then a cut one of my fingers while opening canned food. Then I got major hangnails. Then I scraped my thumb on something. And it cut it....
