Heh. I also tore my tendon about 2 months ago. Finally just healed, but whenever I fall the pain comes back to it. :(

I wore an aircast. Very uncomfortable.

My stab wound in my stomach hurts a lot.

I have a 2 and a half long scar on my left hand from busting my hand through a window. :x I was very little, the olympics got my a little too excited.

I have numerous scars on my right hand from projects. I'm a lefty. The worst one would have to be a 1" scar from when I was trying to make my own knife blade (I was 14ish). Basically, I was using a metal file (hand powered) to make a point, and I caught my meaty palm after the rough, jagged point had formed. It made a huge gash, only a small bit scarred, and my parents never knew. :P No stitches for me!

I have several ex-acto experience marks as well.

The scar from my Quad accident on my right hand is from the bottom of my pointer finger to my wrist.

Looking back at some other posts, here's some responses:

- The BEST way to get super glue off is to peel it off (pick it off) slowly if it's a lot and thick, and sand it off if it's light with around 200 grit sandpaper.

- Shockslayer is not mean.

-What's an aircast?

- I fell off my bike too, only I still have a pebble stuck in me. Seriously.

- I forgot about this one: In third grade, I fell over the railing on a set of concrete stairs outside, breaking both of my legs when I fell on to a concrete corner. One bone cut open my skin, and was hanging out.

No scars, however.

This is completely untrue, by the way.

I had surgery in my leg to straighten it

they

cut it open
cut the bone in half
rotated the bone
screwed a plate in
sewed me back up

That was not a fun summer. Accept for the fact its the summer I became a geek in.

Fractured my left wrist twice before i turned 11, and about 6 years ago I smashed the 2 bones in my arm together.

My first broken wrist was, when climbing a tree when I was 7, fell, didnt want to hurt my butt, put my arm under me and fell on a root breaking the bones in my wrist.

When I was 11 I was playing during recess and I did sonething and tripped and put my left hand out to break my fall and put to much pressure on the bones breaking them.

And now the worst yet, my right arm, well me and my friend were at his grandma`s and she has this REALLY TALL AND STEEP hill in her backyard, well we took a bike and started riding down the hill a bunch on it, we about my 4th time, I hit wet grass when I hit the brakes to stop from hitting the wall of the house and I went out of control, then everything was hazy and I had flipped the bike and messed up my arm.

My most serious injury was when went to a camp open day thing where I ended up on a skateboard, then ended up on a ramp 10 minutes later, with only that past 10 minutes as experience. :P I went down, the board flew out, I broke my ankle completely. had to have a metal plate put in to hold it together. I think the bone must have landed on a nerve later that night (had to wait 2-3 days for surgery :( ), because I had pain shooting up my entire leg unlike any pain I have ever felt. And I have a huge pain tolerance.
Much later, after several months of not walking, my leg atrophied and I had to rebuild the muscle, learn to walk again. Then all my toenails on that foot went ingrown and I had to have them ripped out. That was fun :roll: At least I got some cool crutches, which I quickly modded by painting them black.

Lesson learned: Being awesome at Tony Hawks Pro Skater does not translate into real life :P

Other dumb stuff-
-As a baby I thought blades were cool and went after a food processor blade, and still have a 1 inch scar from the cut still.
-Dad fell on me when he was holding me up while ice skating. My heads a little deformed from that still. Makes getting even haircuts hard.
-As a kid I tried to cut a jawbreaker in half with my first swiss army knife, in a moving vehicle. Finger got sliced open real nice, lol. every knife since then I've managed to cut myself with too. And I collect knives, so thats a lot of cuts!

Portable injurys;

Lots of hot glue burns, lots of iron burns, lots of knife cuts, a few electrical shocks, the plain normal stuff. I'm so glad our bodys are nearly idiot proof in that they heal so fast, or I would have been gone long ago.

as for scars I got a sweet one from a liver transplant. Not as much as an exciting story as some of these, but my scar is prolly the biggest :)

When I was at MGC I should have taken a pic of myself and Ben, Ben with a soldering iron near my scar like he was closing up my wound or something. That would have been cool.
