KK - was never sure if it was dead when it fell out of the tree or it died as a result of hitting me on the head.

Sgt Wilson broke a couple of ribs last year after he tripped over the cat, or so he claims!

I was on an island once near Singapore when someone told me that the biggest cause of death in the island population was from falling coconuts, we cycled round the island alone tracks lined with coconut trees. I was bricking it and cycled in zigzags to avoid them!

oh,..  when playing British Bulldog I broke a kids nose. I picked him up and was holding him face down.  I dropped him on his face..!

Sgt Wilson also has impressive entry and exit scars from being hit by a bamboo spear made and thrown by his twin brother!

Another Sgt Wilson classic - he went over the handlebars of his bike as a kid and broke both wrists so was late home for tea but his mum was in such as huff she wouldn't lissten to him and made him eat his tea with broken wrists. She still blushes now at the mention of the tale!

DV!!

I also have a scar on my arm that looks like I've had surgery to insert a plate or something, it looks really impressive but actually it was gravel rash from another hockey collision.

I caused my brother several visits to A&E too!! He has a couple of scars down his back from when I pushed him onto a briefcase (closure things stuck in his back!!!).

No wonder social services were worried!!

LOL UC, sounds like I went to the same mothering school!

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?
