Accidentally biting the inside of your cheek.

That one is more annoying than painful for me...

Of course it pretty much only happens when I'm chewing ice, so you get that big chomp and the taste of blood followed by the dread that you're going to have a sore you'll be tonguing for the next month...

Stupid cheeks...


Anyone say going to the bathroom after using horse liniment?

Because that's one that I remember very un-fondly...

Using a new treatment of capsaicin cream.
Had a flare up at about 4am the other day and while in a half mentally functioning state, didn't wash the hand I used to rub it in.
Got it in both eyes.

I think I would classify any GSW as more than a "stupid little thing". There are quite a few people no longer breathing due to .22LR GSWs. Even a pellet gun can be lethal under the right circumstances.

Unloading the dishwasher... reached into the silverware basket without looking, and got the tine of a fork jammed ¼" up under the thumbnail... at least it was clean.

If I was tied down, being interrogated, and they offered me the choice of either getting waterboarded or having all my nose hairs pulled out one by one with a pair of tweezers, I would volunteer to get wet.

Has anyone mentioned cardboard cuts? I used to cut sliced and diced at least once a day at my former job. Twice enough to require bandages and once nearly required stitches. Stuff just does not cut, it rips. The edges are like micro serrated knives and they just about always leave scars.

Recent experience, a week ago Tuesday... been fighting a recurring ear infection for 2 years. Finally got into an ENT after yelling at my doctor to stop with the damn antibiotics and check me in. Turns out I have a giant abscess in my skull, in the middle ear and my eardrum is blown out. They busted it open and drained it 3 weeks ago, which was bad enough, but this last one...

Dude cauterized the inside of my ear. It smelled like burning doghair and eggs spilled on the grill... and I was numb for the procedure, but when the numbing wore off, it felt like somebody stuck a red hot poker in my ear. Which they did... I then had a 20 hour headache... Still getting black chunks out too... Only get to do it 3 or 4 more times!

That has to be one of the nastiest things I have heard in a while.

Seriously, hope it gets better soon.

A whip kiss. When that oh so loving 8ft whip glances your skin in passing leaving an instant welt that lasts for days and a scar for the next 3 months. But that instant you get hit to the next 5mins it takes to recover your full senses while you remind your body it is not dying. That ranks up there in pain.

back in the army jumping out of a UH-60, as the 4th man on the side. that ment I had to slide over a few feet before exiting the aircraft. the leg strap slipped over just a little. it cought about a quarter inch of my scrotum, not enough to damage anything, hurt enough that I spent the decent trying to free myself and happy landed like a sack of crap.

No, you wouldn't, trust me.
Whatever works!

Action before Intention
Intention before Appearance

Freedom as far as you can take it without it being a hindrance to the freedom of others and voluntarity trumps all other considerations

:gonk:

Manila folders are worse than regular papercuts, too, but cardboard sounds much worse. I think that folder surprised me almost as much as it hurt. I guess I just didn't think it was possible.

Ok I'm blind in my right eye due to a detached retina/scar tissue...

falling asleep xmas morning when I'm like 5 with dad and i on the couch...dad rolls over and shoves his thumb into my good eye...fucker hurt like a bitch...

then fastforward 10 years...freshman swim class...we were treading water for a test and some kid stabbed his big toe into my leg...the fucking nail broke off and I had to dig it out...i ended up stabbing another kid in the right eye with my middle finger as i lashed out in pain...

paper cuts, hitting your funny bone on anything, your shin...oh getting wapped in the face with a shovel...that hurt...

Kinder garden class, sitting on the magic carpet for story time. Drinking the orange drink and eating the cheap sugar cookie. Then a painful sting as the little girl behind you stab her number 2 pencil into your back. Breaking the point off inside you.
I fly the flag of black and red, the sight fills you with fear and dread. For you know with it i will come.

Shit That Has Happened To Me (In No Particular Order)
Stepping on matchbox cars/legos in the middle of the night
Shutting finger in car door/trunk lid
TV falling off of cabinet while rummaging around in said cabinet
Sneezing and dislocating a rib while driving a Polaris Ranger in Kuwait in a sandstorm and crashing into a stop sign
Getting whipped in the face by your CB Whip antenna while shutting your trunk
IV in your ankle
paper cut and cardboard cut
M4 bolt closing on finger
Bow string snapping while pulled back

Thats all I can think of right now
