Last October I was tightening bolts that hold the steps on my sticks. I was using a dewalt drill and when the lock nut locked up it rotated the stick real fast like a hatchet right in to my face. Drove my self to the ER and took 12 stitches to the face.

When i was a kid my friends dad had a real bull whip. I tried to impress my friends hottie sister by hitting a cup off a table with it like i was Indiana Jones or something. I only ended up having it snap back and hit me in the face. Knocked me right on my can and cut my forehead. All she did was laugh and go inside, not my proudest moment.

Back in my paratrooper days I was getting ready to ETS so the boys took me out and we knocked back some beers and tequila. On the way home everyone thought I should get one more jump in, so we pulled back the sliding side door on the van we were in and with much fan fare I jumped out of the van at 30 mph and executed a perfect parachute landing fall and rolled into the bumper of a parked car splitting my head open and knocking myself out. My buddies carried me up to my rack and put me to bed. I woke up sometime the next day(thankfully) with my pillow stuck to the side of my head from the blood. AIRBORNE!!

Nailed it lol
It's an injury I've seen caused in my childhood. We used to have bb gun wars in the back 40. I shot my buddy in the lip. He wanted to go home to seek medical attention or at least parental attention. We reminded him that we'd probably get in trouble so he let us extract the bb ourselves. I shot him in one side of the bottom lip and the bb came to rest on the other side of his lip so all we had to do is squeeze the bb back across his lip and out the hole. Easy peasy.

I pushed the head, yes the big round dull head, of a 16d nail through my hand playing a game called Neglin. Its kinda one those bar/drinking games. You'd think I slammed my hand down on it but nope, it went through nice and slow. Went through my palm and slipped between my pinky and ring finger bones and the skin on the back of my hand was standing up and stretched tight like a circus tent. FYI, this is NOT the object of the game. Luckily when I pulled my hand up the nail stayed in the wood. It was the first night of a 5 day snowboarding trip in the Canadian backcountry. They gave me some antibiotics at the lodge and I rode all 5 days. I brought the bloody nail home. Im not gonna impress anyone with my snowboarding skills there but I will forever be a legend at that lodge and all the other lodges in that area of British Columbia. So I got that going for me...

Thought it would be a good idea to throw a catfish at my brother back in 2012. I was fishing in my boat, he was in a pontoon about 20 yards away. I caught a small catfish and chucked it at their boat. Grip slipped a bit and I got a pretty good gash in my hand. Beer was involved. Despite everyone telling me to go get stitches I just butterfly bandaged it shut and it healed ok. Cut some nerves, took about a year before I could feel my fingertips again.

Fell out of the back of a truck on a paved road at 50 mph. Road was full of pot holes. Got knocked out 4 times flipping down the road, dislocated fingers, 11 big splits in my head, covered in road rash. I was in a cut off, Chippewas and shorts.. Not good.

That's one of my many dumb injuries. I could go all day. I'm almost 4 years sober and no injuries since I quit drinking.

Im not sure if its a written rule but these guys start the game by setting the nail in the wood by pushing with your palm without using your body weight(extended arm). Pretty harmless till I come along and ruin it for everyone. In my defense, which there isn't room for much, I was able tp push the nail in way further than everyone else until it pushed back. I am a carpenter so my hands are meat hooks anyway.
