Given how clumsy I am Lee it's a miracle!

Got lots of scars from assorted falls and such like.  Class one on my calf where I decided that it was a good idea to shave my legs after rather a few too many cube libres!!

Sorry - 6 above contains two separate incidents whilst I was 20 resulting in being knocked unconscious.

worst I've done is dislocated shoulder.....

several times, first time I saw the head of the humerous (sp?) where my pecs should be, that was at 15! 

Several years later and about 4 further dislocations I had it fixed by an orthopod, which has left an impressive scar on the front of my shoulder

Ouch JD, that sounds icky! Cool scar though, plenty of mileage in innocently gained scars!

Two freakin floors????????

I hope they didn't bill you for the "drying out" charge

Have managed to let a leaking washing machine go un noticed in my kitchen for approx 6 months though - didn't twig it until I noticed a wet patch in the lounge carpet - two rooms away!!

got off with it...and they even sent me a bottle of wine and put me in a new room !!  LOL- the next day one of the guy's whoose room I flooded helped me manoeuvre my car out of the carpark he waved me off he told me how he'd had his room flooded and would never stay at that hotel again !!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my breaks made it into an issue of RW and the local papper a few years back.

About 5 am one May morning I was pelting down a towpath between a river and canal on my bike, going way too fast but there was no other bugger about. A goose flew out of some reeds on the river side of the path and aimed himself straight at my head. I tried to duck (no pun intended) but it me full on in the face. I swerved and came off my bike,  smacked my head on a mooring stake and fell head first into the canal. Well I would have if my legs hadn't been hanging over the mooring chain. My head was under water, legs waving madly in the air. Fortunatley my legs followed the rest of me into the canal. I managed to get out and stagger to the nearest road, flag down a car who called my Mrs (my phone wouldn't work, it was wet). She wouldn't come and get me as it would mean waking all of the kids up so the car driver took me to hospital. 

Concusion and brocken wrist, fortunatley I had my helmet on or it might well have been curtains.

I can only presume that the goose had it's nest in the reeds.

Oh, and I broke my clavicle diving into a recently filled dew pond after a heavy summer shower on the Green outside a hotel I was working in.

Oh, how they mocked me

Superior pubic ramus and inferior pubic ramus both on left hand side.  They're part of the pelvis.  No it wasn't excessive bonking.  Motorcycle accident.

The pain from the fractures was bad enough but when they started to heal up I got sciatica trawled straight from hell.  It was so-o-o-o painful

17/11/2007 at 21:16
Feckin ouch! I had a mate who did that too and it was a bike accident. he said it was more painful than sticking your crown jewels in a vat of boiling oil!
17/11/2007 at 21:18
How would he know Lee?
17/11/2007 at 21:22
I think he was trying to imagine a pain that was worse and that was what he came up with, I never asked him if he actually had dangled the jewels in boiling oil!
