Most serious? Most funny?
One morning after coming down stairs I stubbed my toe on an excercise bike my ex wife had stored in my hallway, whilst moving. Turned out I'd broke my little toe and teh one next to it. Half my foot turned black That'll teach me to wear slippers in the house.
Had 6 weeks before the Stockport 10 Miler and ended up with about 4 weeks to train for it!
I'm still laughing at the Squirrel one at the start of this thread
I once impaled myself in the knee with a fishing hook. Because it was barbed I had to thread it through the flesh to get it out. Very hurty.
I have broke a fair few bones
Most of these from when I used to race Moto-x bikes.
collarbone, ribs, left wrist twice (once complete carpal dislocation which required wiring) I have permanent pins in my left index finger also I have broke left hand, left thumb, right wrist twice. I always had a habit of putting my hands out in front of me when getting chucked off the bike which gave me a lot of wrist/hand injuries.
if you brake both your wrists at the same time I gaurentee you will be amazed how much you take things like the ability to wipe your own ass fro granted.
Most serious accident was a ruptured spleen - Moto-x agian - badly mistimed a double jump and hit the face of the second jump - its a really unpleasant thing to have - at one point I thought i was going to have all of my birthdays at once.
