    What's the dumbest way you've ever injured yourself?

    I used to work at a military arsenal where the did explosives testing. My building was not far from the quary where munitions were frequently detonated. Once I reached to answer the phone and just as I was bringing it to my ear; BOOM! a giant explosion. Well my arm jerked and I punched myself in the face with the handset. Had a shiner for a week.

    What's the dumbest way you've ever injured yourself?
    "The greatest single cause of atheism in the
    world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus
    with their lips then walk out the door and deny
    Him by their lifestyles. That is what
    an unbelieving world simply
    finds unbelievable."

    I was watching cookies bake. I fell back off of the balls of my feet and busted my head open on the open dishwasher door. 8 stitches.



    I am sure I will remember something FAR more stupid. When I do, I will post it.

    If Satan can keep us busy swinging our swords at one another, there is no hope of a united attack on the kingdom of darkness. KJV, NIV, ESV or ABCDEFG; there is no time to bicker over such things. We'll devour each other if allowed to continue. We should grab the marching orders written in the way we best understand and get to work.

    OK... I remembered another one.

    When I was a kid, I postulated that if you could seal the end of the barrel of a BB gun preventing air movement, the BB would not come out of the barrel. What did I use? My finger. It turns out that I did not understand that air compressed at a high rate at 8 years old. The BB embedded itself in the end of my left index finger. I had to cut it out.

    Re: What's the dumbest way you've ever injured yourself?

    On my 2nd Iraq deployment, my detachment and I were going through the dwelling place of a known, uh, bad guy, when one of my soldiers spotted a file cabinet. Since this particular group of bad guys were not dummies and the cabinet was prominently displayed out in the open, we all figured it would be trapped. Rather than, you know, wait for someone who was specifically trained for this sort of thing, I told my guys to get out of the way and sauntered up to the cabinet. Since I was qualified to handle and set the things, I figured that was exactly the same thing as disarming them. I was rifling around the thing when I felt a catch being released and dove to the ground in time to catch shrapnel in my hand, arm, and shoulder; would have been worse if I didn't dive. That was pretty stupid overall and my guys wouldn't stop laughing once they realized I was fine
    The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
    In the ranks of death ye will find him;
    His father's sword he hath girded on,
    And his wild harp slung behind him;
    "Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
    "Tho' all the world betray thee,
    One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
    One faithful harp shall praise thee!

    I've tried thinking of something dumb I've done to hurt myself and can't really pinpoint one.
    I can come up wit all kinds of things I've done that had grave potential.

    Not something I personally did, but a Darwin award nominee. Apparently two guys from Alabama wanted to play catch but didn't have a ball so they improvised. Unfortunately (for them) they improvised with a passing rattlesnake. Needless to say the rattlesnake took a fairly dim view of being used as a ball....
    24 August 2013 - I've decided to take a break from a number of internet forums, including this one, for my own reasons.
    I expect to be back at some time in the future, although at present don't know when that will be.
    I've been here just a few days shy of six years, and those six years have been greatly blessed.

    Well, I have had my share of hitting my fingers with a hammer, and slamming them in the car door. I even fell off a horse once.
    I did cause my younger brother to be injured in a dumb way. I was playing the "see food" game. I opened my mouth and he saw food, got grossed out, turned, tripped and fell hitting his head on the kitchen table. He got 5 stitches.
