Injury prone people

Share your scars here! Injury pics are awesome! Are power tools involved? Is glass involved? How about metal? Knives? Beware, I have no control over what people post, there might be some graphic stuff.

BTW, the cabinet has a dent the size of a basketball.
When I was 6 in kindergarten me and a friend were spinning in circles the friend let go, and I ended up literally cracking my head on the corner of a filing cabinet, I cut a main blood vessel, and the Meds said that I lost more than half my blood. They also said they had never seen as much blood in there lives. Oh, and they said they thought I was gonna die. I don't have a picture of it. But, I still have a large scar that you can see through my hair.

Razor blades are fun.

I don't have a picture of it, since it was over 32 years ago, but I was prying apart two halves of a vacuum pump (not the motor), and the "screwdriver" slipped and embedded into my left palm at an acute oblique angle for about 1-2 inches of the "blade". I remember not really feeling it to the extent that I should have, and even scrubbed it out (the wound) with rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush as the blade was greasy and dirty. Tore a few ligiments that time....

That sounds excruciating dude.
Funny, but I must have gone into a mild form of shock, because it didn't hurt really badly, and even when I scrubbed it out with the alcohol, it didn't hurt very got pretty sore the next day though. :-)

Not to long ago my Dremel tool slipped while I was sanding and took a gouge out of my finger. At least two years ago a Gerber folding knife (recently sharpened) had the liner-lock give and it snapped closed on my thumb, cut me to the bone ... I still have the scar from that one.

Ouch. Sounds painful.
Yeah ... the Dremel wound was the most painfull, cause' the sanding bit was hot so it burned me a little too. The incident with the knife didn't actually hurt when I first got cut, it was a couple minutes after I got the blade out of my thumb when it started hurting.

Same with my skinned elbow, I fell off my bike while trying to do a trick(I'm ashamed to admit that it was a bunny hop, and I still cant do wheelies) and tore a chunk out of my elbow, I preemptively yelled in pain but stopped cause it didn't hurt at all, not even when they patched me up. That scar tissue still feels no pain, its quite weird and neat.
