I aso have a habit of opening doors but having my foot in the way, so not only does the door bang my foot, but I also tend to walk straight into the half-opened door.

Posted:nice one sir yoni, i used to hate when you'd hurt yourself, scream and then get punished, just rubbing salt in the wound.

my girlfriend has a great one, she was doing b.ball training, jogging round the court kicking your feet up behind you and tipping your fingers off yopur shoes. her coach kept screaming at her too kick higher, she got frustrated and kicked alot higher, straight into her hand, shattering her finger in 3 places.

Posted:-I walk into things all the time
-Not a day goes by where i don't fall down the stairs
-I manage to burn myself all the time when cooking (like 2 times a week!!
-I seem to gravitate towards any slippery wet bits in supermarkets, I've fallen on my arse infront of lots of shoppers many many many times!

At school to 'pull a beth' (as in to 'pull a monica' from friends) was to fall over in some humiliating way!

I am possible the most mal-cordinated, accident prone person ever in the world - to the point where i was taken to doctors to make sure there wasn't something wrong with me!! ubbloco

Posted:hmmmm heres one

a few years ago I was arsing around with my ex on a skateboard.... well being ina rather hilly area I thought I'd go down a really steep road on it. It has a slight turn that you cant quite see round the corner. And well I was wearing a bike chain bracelet. Anyways a car comes round the corner I crap myself and dive off the board to the side and land my hand directly on my bracelet and gouged out some nice chunks off skin. Nice

Posted:i try not to do embarrassing/painful things if i can help it, though I did get dropped on my head by a mate the other day though. He's one of them brick wall type people and he grabbed my leg. I thought a good way out of this would be to hoist myself up onto his shoulders. He didn't and basically threw me over his shoulder.
I hit the floor head first and bled. Everyone looked concerned but i pretty much shrugged it off and it was all good.

Posted:Has anyone seen those foldable manicure scissors?

Well I was trying to fold a set and they weren't folding so I placed my hand between the blades to try to shut them and (yes you guessed it) they shut very quickly and slashed my hand up pretty nicely.

I am so accident prone though that this is only one example of my stupidity...I am constantly walking into walls, doors (yes if I say I walked into a door after you ask why I have a black eye my excuse of walking into a door is really true)...furniture.

I have tried to show off my martial arts prowess (I have none) while wearing a long skirt and ended up on my arse very quickly on tiles.

I have slipped on water on tiles while running to get something boiling off the stove and ended up with a huge bruise.

Yes I am an official clutz!

I started doing extended pirouettes while traveling in a big circle around the bon fire but forgot the fact that I dont know how to spot my head when doing so smile Needless to say I ended up rather dizzy after I completed the circle and fell over redface

Posted:well for me even the most simple things can be disastrous....
hhmmm ill tell you a couple of stories about me and the wonderful friends that i have!!

well the first story was quite painful so i think worth a mention.....well you know those ticket booths that you see with a little gap at the bottom to put your money through and a hole to speak through??? well one of my friends dared me to try and see if i could fit through the bottom bit where you put your money....NOT a good idea.....i managed to get halfway through but the got severely stuck.....
two hours later found me still stuck and eventually i got pulled from one side and pushed from the other until i got out....it resulted in me have many bruises from the tight squeeze and a few cuts from the chaffing of pulling me under the glass.....

the next couple of stories are a offtopic but there funny even if they didnt hurt.....
ok well the first is simple, one of my friends decided it would be funny to pick me up and dump me in a garbage bin.....he did so and i again got stuck, instead of helping me out he just walked off laughing and left me in the bin.....he eventually came back but not until sufficient people had walked past to get me severely embarrassed!!!

right now its another example of my friends picking on me again.....well we were on a camp and somehow got hold of a BRAND NEW roll of cling wrap.....they decided it would be funny to totally wrap someone up in it.....that someone turned out to be me. they forced me to be wrapped up VERY tightly from the ankles to the head with my arms pinned by my sides also wrapped up.....they eventually finished the roll then decided to push me around until i fell over then promptly sat on me and tickled me!!! did you know that it is virtually impossible to get up once your on the ground when your wrapped in cling wrap?!
by this time most of the peopleat the camp had joined in the game of 'toture me' and were having a very fun time rolling me around on the ground (even the leaders joined in!) finally one of the leaders took pity on me and cut the cling wrap off!!!

hhmmm.....what else has happened??? oh yeah i got set on fire in a supermarket once!!!
its true.....my dad used to have this thing where he would always flick his lighter near me or on my clothing just to muck around.....one day he did this in the supermarket and i happened to have some very flammable trouses on and well you can guess what happened!!! the supermarket stunk for ages!!!

i could go on for a long time about stuff like this but i wont.....

When I was 10 i ended up in hoispital because i decided to tightrope walk a barbed wire fence...
half way across it snapped and wrapped round my legs cutting them quite badly
when i was a little bit older i made my own death slide with a length of washing line. when i jumped out of the tree 40ft up in the air i plummeted 30 ft straight down (forgot to take up tension)
before shooting forward at about 100mph into the tree i had tied the other end too ooooops
I really am accident prone but thiinking about it I cause all the problems myself ubblol
