I got scars on both my achilles that look like I've had surgery but were actually from the zips on a pair of running legging that I wore on a long run when it was freezing - I was so cold I didn't notice they'd cut me til I got home.

Mr Kwilter knocked himself out on a torpedo while doing a weapons load once and had to walk round for a week with a HUGE dressing on his head till he'd healed up. He also broke his wrist playing football.

Boy Kwilter broke his thumb last year because he was talking when he was playing basketball and didn't see the pass.

Oh! just remembered another one of mine, discolated right thumb in a hamster wheel type thing when I fell trying to walk round it (sober again sadly)

Worst, cut two veins and an artery on a broken milk bottle when aged 6.

Most amusing, caught front wheel of my bike in a drain cover when doing about 30 mph downhill. The bike stopped I did not and carried on at the same speed in a superman style pose landing on my chest on a wet grass lawn. Slid, at considerble speed, across the lawn, and explosively demolished part of a privet hedge head first. Still dont know how i ended up with only a dislocated thumb, and a couple of scratches.

UltraCas how did you get the earphones on?

KK, the sewing through it wasn't the problem, it was the automatic ripping thumb out of machine workings once needle had gone through it .

Luckily it was a baby dress for Girl K and was in Christmassy red and green...you could only see the blood if you looked really closely

Thankyou,

   A passing old boy walking his dog said it looked good too.

I was taking the p*ss out of my sister one day, laughing my head off, forgetting I was at the top of the stairs. She pushed me down the stairs and I lost both my front teeth, cow!

I went to do a survey at a house and the gardener came running up to me holding his hand screaming that I took him to the hospital...  he had amputated his finger on the lawnmower.  The classic danger of the blade getting stuck and he tried to free it.  He still had the finger I drove him to the hospital. 

My main worry was whether he would drip blood on my seats and carpet...!

Then.......broke my right ankle in a drunken disorderley uni party. Friend on my back into a fish pond. In plaster of paris for 6 weeks. Foot comes out of plaster, then no lying, 3 days later break the same ankle, under the influence, in the SAME pond. This time I was thrown in and landed awkwardly.

Oh, kk, no head injuries. At least I wasn't told about any. Although must have. I am here NOW! On a Saturday night!

I've been knocked out twice in very similar circumstances.  Once, when I was a kid we were chasing each other and I ran across a garden and the washing line caught under my chin, flipped me up and I must have lost consciousness on impact.  A similar thing happened years later playing rugby.  Some monster did a high tackle round my neck and I was out for about 30 mins...

Yes KK, I wasn't too chuffed either, that's why the b*tch lives in NZ now!

Can I claim for an injury I thought I'd done? I was cutting some fabric pieces for a quilt with a self heal board and a rotary cutter, basically a razor-sharp circular blade. I only had one piece left to do and didn't move my hand out of the way, being lazy. Sadly my little finger was just over the edge of the ruler. Naturally I sliced straight into my finger.

Cue much blood (I mean lots and lots) screaming from me, and a conviction I'd just amputated my little finger. I ran to the bathroom turned the tap on and psyched myself to look. It was still attatched but I'd gone through the very tip and halfway through the nail. I've still got a strange bump there and no feeling in it.

There is someone on here who used to do cage fighting.. I can't remember who that is...  he had some good stories to tell about injury and being strangled..!

Lee-sterine , LOL, can just picture it! Having a good laugh and then....tumble,tumble,tumble......LOL

KK, that was in my mental youthful days though.

Burnt my foot one New Year's Day when a hot chip straight out of the oven went down the side of my (sockless) trainer.

Good thread this, kk..  well done!

I've nailed my foreskin to a bar stool, I was plastered at the time and it didn't hurt. Ending up dragging that bloody bar stool around all night.
