    Howdy GBATemp, what kind of injuries have you succumbed to that have affected your life in some way?

    I've suffered various injuries to practically everywhere. First off I have a piece of glass in my right knee from when I was 11...was playing outside and fell on an unseen plate glass on the ground (WHY THE FUCK WAS THAT THERE, DON'T EVEN KNOW). Got hit in the spine by both a baseball after someone hit it and a baseball being chucked at me for...various reasons. Been hit in the right shoulder by a baseball bat, got hit by a car on my right side, have had various nails pierce through both my feet, various dislocations on most of my fingers on both my hands. OH and this one time when I was on a sledding trip (I was about 8...) I was going down a hill when suddenly bench. A fucking bench was in the middle of the hill covered in snow, no one saw it. Got a scar next to my left eye and chipped my skull a bit there. I'm pretty much unable to do any kind of physical activity without hurting myself in some way and I'm constantly in pain all the time. BUT THAT'S WHY I'M SUCH A BADASS. B-)

    Anyways, what about you, various people?

    EDIT: Oh and 900 posts fuck yeah.

    I've broke my left arm twice. It sucked, but not nearly as bad as your injuries. But you are pretty badass.

    Well...I wouldn't say badass, but accident prone haha. Funny thing about it is I've never broken a bone. Ever.

    Damn I've never broken anything, a couple scars on my arms, calluses from lifting. The worst was being hit in the nose by a metal baseball bat and a sprained ankle, neither of which were permanent nor as bad as what you've endured.

    After a plethora of injuries, there has yet to be one that I have "succumbed to".

    Ain't found no way to kill me yet.

    Succumbed doesn't always mean die, can mean fail to resist. :P

    I've never heard it used in any other way.

    But I could be mistaken.

    Never broken a bone in my body. Have never had any serious injuries greater than a bruise or a graze

    You mean to tell me that in the greatest RPG of all (called Real Life), you've never been taken down to 0 HP??

    The worse that ever happened was a car running over my foot. Twice. Thank god I was wearing boots. :P

    Actually, I remembered...I accidentally shocked myself with a bug zapper multiple times when I was 8... o.o

    The two I can think of are cracking my head open when I was three or so and breaking my right ankle just two years ago (trampolines are predatory beasts).

    Other than that, I've been pretty lucky when it comes to serious injuries.

    Way to many to describe.

    Last injury was when I was rewiring a light socket for my mum when my dad accidentally turned on the power on the distribution board.

    Got zapped pretty hard!
    230v hurts like a mxthxrfxcker.

    Hmmm.. well I burned my hand on a tractor muffler when I was really young =P so I don't remember the pain really. Haven't broken any bones, and I hope I never do! Other than that, just minor things here and there that aren't even worth mentioning.

    Someone set up a prank for me, got wire and hooked up my desk at school to an outlet. Soon as I touch that fucker I was numb for hours.

    I was biking on my mountain bike around three years ago to my friends house, and hit this small jump in the center of town going about 20 miles per hour... my front wheel fell off in the air.

    Have some scars on my wrist. I was able to see the bone, and had some bruises on my face. Luckily I didn't hit my head...

    This actually happened after my first day of work at my job. I went in the next day all bandaged up.

    Other than that, I've never had to go to the hospital or anything. I've been skateboarding my whole life and have fallen plenty of times but never really anything as bad as that... Worst part is it wasn't even my fault too. Dumb bike. :angry:
