I got a minor crush injury on my hand from Quorn sausages. 

I opened a cupboard, the handle came off in my hand and sliced me across the face, just missing my eye. 

The hose from a Vax carpet cleaner fell on me and broke my nose.

I could continue...

I did pluck out a nose hair while chewing on the end of my glasses the hair got caught in the hinge and twanged out when I put them on

Came home from the pub a bit pissed and fell in the hallway, grabbed the banister of the stairs but all I managed was to tear all the ligaments in my shoulder/rotator cuff. What made this really stupid was it was just before IM Germany so I could not swim so therfore could not go and it was to late to get any money back so ended up costing me £400 +

One expensive night out

I once ended up having to have an MRI scan after injuring myself putting on a pair of slippers

I almost severed my thumb opening a knife in a plastic packet. With a pair of SAFETY SCISSORS. I never regained full use of it and the nail no longer grows

I sliced my finger through to the bone on a food processor blade on Christmas day a few years back. A year later - Christmas day again - I nearly died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Although that's not exactly an injury...

I ran into a llama in mudchute park....more a bruised ego for me then anything else.

I know of a guy sitting at home; chatting to his mate on the phone, who somehow managed to break his arm in three places.

I got an infected fingernail bed after a run....

My finger got jabbed by a briar as I ran past and it became infected. By the time I went to the drs my whole finger was poker hot, inflamed and I couldn't bend it. She had a jolly good laugh, prescribed antibiotics and told me to jab it with a Sharp needle when the swelling had gone down.

I once split my chin open by accidently wedging a sheet of corrugated plastic in a door and then hitting myself in the face with it when I pulled it free. I still have the scar

I scratched my cornea on an overhanging branch running home from work


What did D sever his tendon on making tea?

I ran past a hedge with a wasps nest and got stung 3 times.  Two days later I was in hospital on an IV drip with cellulitis of the lower leg.

I once gave myself a black eye doing my horse's girth up. Girth slipped out of my hand and the momentum meant I punched myself!

Last year, as a 40 yr old adult I put the palm of my hand down on the hot plate on the stove to check if it was on.

Completely sober I might add, an away with the fairies moment.

It was on.

You just reminded me of something I did this morning.....

I was lighting a scented candle with an extra long match. Put it up to my lips to blow it out without allowing for the extra length and burnt my bottom lip!

Because I take stupid to a whole new level

I touched a fence to see if it was electrified once. Fortunately, it wasn't!
