Most I've done would have to be a broken metacarpal. Playing keeper for my indoor soccer team. Lovely fun time.

Well at least i know that i have people as safe as me (not saying you others arent :) ) And especially you MrC, with your Fort in your garage used for protection when shooting your golf ball cannon. (Piston one)

EDIT: And i would like to start a petition to get this stickied, so that this can be used for informational and educational uses (examples such what not to do so that the same accident doesnt occur) and just for the intersting part

Man you guys are all very dangerous, especially you Killjoy

Thanks I appreciate the compliment haha.
Actually I've broken 3 bones.
My right ankle (fractured when I got kicked),
my elbow (fell down the stairs because I tripped when the cast on my right ankle got caught on something),
and my collar bone (playing tackle football with no pads...sadely people still remember the popping noise it made when it snapped).

That must of hurt mrcrowly, those damn finger injuries always do and for a while too.

Edit: The sticky idea is actually pretty good, though theres is some random stuff not necessarly pertaning to the subject...

I'm not dangerous... I just do things that are likely to go wrong.

I almost got hit by a rebounding gb a couple of days ago :(

my collar bone (playing tackle football with no pads...


In Australia we don't wear the pads when we play footy, our footy players are tough mutha f%&kers

I broke my arm at 60 deg. and came close to fracturing my spine when I came off the high side of a berm on my YZ.

Ive broken fingers and poped my left shoulder out from flat landing a 110 ft step down

plus numerous cuts and bruises.

Same with any Rugby player not just Aussie, dare I mention <A HREF="http://clients.sinicity.com/tourvic/newsletter/2007winter/images/w07_rugby1.jpg">The Australian Football League?</a> :lol:

I think i'd take NFL over AFL :roll:

Anyway American football is more entertaining when people get sacked, the pads just make it looks worse.

Well whilst we are comparing scares how's this for a story.
When i was 15 i was jumping my bmx at a practice moto track (Danny Hams).
I soared over a table-top and landed perfectly, however my bars snapped and sent the left jagged edge through my ribs and stopped about 7mm away from my heart. With a collapsed left lung and fat tissue to be seen i staggered to the nearest house about 1/4 of a mile away. From there i was transported to a local field and then flown by helicopter to hospital.
This is where it gets weird, the day before i was visiting my cousin in the same hospital, and as we were leaving i pointed out the chopper to my parents and said " I bet you i'll never get a go it that chopper", less than 12 hours later guess where i was - in the bloody chopper....

^^haha I knew someone would say that. But damn nova, thats one hell of a way to get a ride in a helicopter...did you at least enjoy the view from the chopper?

Haha no doubt, but my point was that my collar bone probably wouldn't have broken if I had pads on.

I doubt that i could obtain his sig.. when i was 17 i was invited to his sisters 18th birthday, let's just say that one should not drink THEN smoke!
After saying hi to the birthday girl and Danny (he was with with some mates and didn't know me but he was more than polite), i headed for a mates place to smoke some illegal substance and then went back to the party after "kipping" in about 3 driveways. Btw his sister is a hottie :D Ah those good old days...

An Australian bloke that became world champ at motocross, i actually went to school with him, he seemed like a prick, but his sister was in my year at school and she was alright.

Google Danny Ham, im sure he would have a site.

Edit : damn you Jack!

Yeah I did, didn't get as many hits as I thought I would.

Personally never heard of him.

Who was the Aussie guy that recently jumped a football field(actually only 90yards but same thing) in Vegas?
