My father, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and says, “Why so serious?” Comes at me with the knife. “WHY SO SERIOUS?” He sticks the blade in my mouth… “Let’s put a smile on that face.” And Log in to Reply A dog stepped on my leg.

But I have a ton from injuries I’ve gotten during seizures. So, lots of stories I guess. Log in to Reply Hitted myself with axe Log in to Reply Caught in a zipper Log in to Reply Ran in flip flops, one of them bent and I dragged my toe all across the concrete for about a full meter. In case we aren’t talking about fresh scars, I’ve got one on my finger from when, being a dumbass kid, I wore a “lucky ring” during a match. Forgot to take it off and went to bed. Woke up with a bloated fucking finger and went to the firefighters to get the ring sawed off. I still have a scar from the heat that generated.

Log in to Reply Collision with a building at speed coming down a ski slope Log in to Reply My brothers is one on his knee where it was sliced open after he was swinging around in my wardrobe Log in to Reply Teenage school brawl and an unfortunate piece of metal. Log in to Reply Which one lol? I have quite a few. My worst one is the missing tip if my left ring finger. Happened when I was about 18 months old. My parents tell me the story of them watching Aliens on rented vhs (might even have been beta), and I was doing my thing around the house, at some point a strong gust of wind caused an internal door to slam, somehow only my ring finger was in the way. Anyway I started crying and spraying aterial blood all over the place. Apprently there was no surgeon on duty that day so instead of reattching my finger was cleaned up and stitched closed. A few days later when I shook the bandage off my parents thought the tip remained in the bandage and rushed me back to hospital where they were informed that it was never reattached. In the past I have made up many stories of how it was cut off… From a motorcycle accident, to a baby croc biting and doing it’s deathroll on my finger.

I annoyed my sister so she stabbed my arm with a fork. I tripped over and slit my chin open on gravel, then after I had stitches I fell over in the same area and split the stitches. I walked past metal at work and the edge sliced my arm.

Log in to Reply Let’s see….cut marks on my left shoulder, pec, and back are from my ex who was bipolar and decided she was a vampire one night. 3 of the ones on my hands are from dudes trying to stab me or my older brother. Have a long thin one going from my right thumb up my forearm, that one was Mardi Gras 2007. Was a drunk with a knife so that was fun. Left hip is from a hernia rupture when I was 5. Right thigh, left foot, left calf are from stone and sand being turned into shrapnel from an IED. And the circular scar in my right cheek is from a .22 lr round from about 40 yards when I was ten from my cousins deciding to have a shoot out over a Becky down the block. Oh, and electrical burns/cigarette burns to my fingers and major knuckles. Those are the ones that suck the worst due to nerve damage fucking with my gaming. Log in to Reply I was stabbed by my mother when I was 9. She was super drunk and waving a knife around on the couch I was cuddled up on. She flung her arm right and the knife went into my leg. It didn’t go super deep, and thankfully didn’t do any damage. But, 32 years later, I still have the scar. Log in to Reply Bicycle landed on my arm. Implaled by a license plate. Fell off a motorcycle.
