I have a lot but the worse....

12 or 13 and decided it would be cool to take my pocket knife and stab into a bulls eye on a dart board- didnt hold the knife tight enough and slide my hands down the blade. My pinky took it the worse cutting all the way to the bone and severing the tendon. Now only the first joint bends. So stupid....

well i will share a near miss. I was changing oil on my corvette ... front wheels on ramps but the oil drain plug is on the front of the oil pan so what do you do ... jack up the rear ... i should have used jack stands on the rear ...

The oil filter would not come off so i was yanking it hard ... hard enough for the car to roll back down the ramp ... luckily my cat like reflexes allowed me to roll out of the way before i got squashed ... as the oil bucket did. So there goes the car now rolling out of the garage, back end up on the jack (yes i was stupid and did not use the jackstands that i had to move out of the way to get to the jack) and did i mention the smashed oil bucket ... so there is now 5+ quarts of oil all over the garage floor

Besides humiliating myself (wife and kids came running as i was yelling) i did save $20 on that oil change!

I got one funny one and one not so funny one .

Tossed out of a car at around 50-70 mph in a drug deal gone bad and run completely over by the car ......still here to tell the story so I am all good. Tore up my shoulder pretty, good fractured some teeth, had crazy road rash and tire marks imprinted in my shins from the bad guys Mercedes S500. Talk about a crazy ride. He is currently in prison for 23yrs for attempt murder to a police officer.

Last year at Disney I was in the "surf wave" pool at Typhoon Lagoon. Didn't realize it was a surf wave pool originally. We got there when park opened. First time there. Have my 7 and 5 yr old girls with me in each arm. They wanna go to the front since they have been in a ton of wave pools already. We are just thinking normal wave pool. Well I hear the bell ring, alarm go off and a WOOOOSH! that sounded like a freight train and here comes a huge I would say 6-8ft surf wave right at us while they are in their innertubes. I freak try and grab them wave hits me and I apparently suffer a double sports hernia doung the splits on the bottom holding on to them. Off for surgery. Their smiles were worth every minute of surgery tho. They loved it

I used to wonder what it feels like to nick a finger with a router bit. As of February 2003, I don't have to wonder. Left index fingertip, meet brand new tongue bit from my tongue & groove set.

It didn't hurt- it flicked it and the fingertip was numb.
