Jesus, people.

I find it kind of amusing how many of these are related to falling during wars. I frequently throw myself in the direction I'm running when I'm hit. Even at full sprint on concrete. Not one injury to date.


As for all the modding injuries, sssk. Ouch. Reminds me why I don't use a dremel when I cut or use high-temp glue. Or X-acto knives. You were kinda begging for that one, Cheez. Use sandpaper next time. Works wonders, man.


All of this reminds me of the time I was doing a "drive-by" on my bike... Next to a chainlink fence... I was going 10 miles per hour, easy... Handlebar snagged, I got slammed to the sidewalk underneath my bike. I still can't bend my knee all the way.

Ahem... Some things are stupid kids. For everything else, there's health insurance.

Was camping on the roof like a noob, jumped off and took all my weight on my right leg... limping for the rest of the day, 'nuff said.

I had a BBB tank explode in my face once, some shards got in my eye, and I had to go to the emergency room.

Speaking of BBBB related injurys, I got shot from 15ft away with a singled BBBB at 30 pumps.

Modding would had to be when I left the glue gun on for half an hour. I then proceeded to glue something, it was so hot, it dripped off the gun and landed on my barefoot. I ended up having to run upstairs and shove my foot into the shower. Another 5 minutes later I had to pull off about 1 Square inch of glue bound with my skin. :rolleyes:

War: shot in the back of the head from 2 feet away with a singled at2k

modding: getting cut with just about the sharpest kitchen knife in the world. had to get stitches and the scar is still puffy. (but it's not infected).


The pump wasn't plugged and that was from 20+ feet. Nice sense of direction Mr.Sm1500 Snap.
Ps. Check out my new sig.

********

My worst injury was either when I was hit in the neck by a 2k at a war, or when I was dremeling and cut my fingernail in half with a diamond cutting disk.

Wow, after reading all this, I feel somewhat lucky to still have sight in both eyes and be able to move all my body parts correctly without pain.

The worst Nerf War injury was at Bagsfest 1 when we were playing a certain game and I got shot in the shoulder from about ~30' away, it only left a welt compared to what you people have.

As for modding, probably the one that was the most painful was when I was hot gluing a piece of PVC pipe and I dropped the pipe, my finger got inserted into the pipe where all the hot glue was (kinda like CPVC in PVC) and I recieved no aid for about an hour because someone was too lazy to get up and get a first aid kit which was in the other room. Another modding injury was when I was trying to put a homemade in a Titan shell, forgot about the gaping hole in the back, used about 2 long sticks of hot glue and then I felt the pain.

my worst injury was during a war about a year ago. It was during one of those suprise March snowstorms and i was running when i slipped on a patch of ice, fell, and broke my ankle in three places. To top it off my friend came over and shot me in the head before he realized i was hurt. I was out of action for most of the summer.

Playing around with my six year old son, shooting stock mavs. More or less hide and seek with guns.

I'm hiding, waiting for him to round a corner. I jump out and yell, trying to startle him. The little s#!t had grabbed my NF-PPK and shot me right in the open mouth. I almost choked on the freakin dart.

Ok, this isn't about my injury, but rather someone else's. My friend was running across the middle (dumbass) and he was running backwards shooting at people above the railing and he fell backwards over the table sitting on its side in the middle. It was hilarious but it took him like 5 minutes to get up.


At the same war, I was hiding inside a hockey net (brilliant, right?). The top of the net was held on with lots of zip ties. I wasn't ready and someone ran up the stairs (I was at the top) with a fully pumped magstrike and I stood up and got the zip ties all down my back and they bled.

Haha, I was messing around with a maverick I had just bought a while back, and I somehow managed to shoot a tagger down my throat. I coughed up the damned thing before I turned blue, but my little bro was laughing his ass off. Not a physical injury, but it sure injured my pride.

So, what was that about it being hard to get hurt nerfing?



That said, VACC, I've messed my birth-injured left arm from bad to worse, landing on it after a fall...

The worst part was, not only did my arm get fucked-up (Not like I wasn't lacking 80% mobility to start with), but my LS shattered when I fell on it. T_T


*By shattered, I mean the shell broke into numerous pieces, busted up the barrel, shattered the bolt, and a bunch of other stupid crap that makes a new Longshot more economical than repairs.



So, I think it's:

VACC: 1
Schizo: .5
Everyone else: 0

Considering my arm WILL never be the same again.




If you want photographic proof, PMs are more appropriate for this. That means the lot of ya!

My point was meant to be indicitive of my continued ass kicking after the injury. Your score seems to be the result of simply sustaining an injury. That's not really a game I want to win.

As always, thats completely siggable. Stop being either intentionally or unintentionally funny.

@ MC: And I think we've all gotten hurt doing stupid things, so saying you are the winner of stupid injuries seems like a bittersweet victory to me. I'd rather be in slight amounts of pain then be dubbed "Captain Clutz", but I seem to be a visionary on that front.

And on the subject of kicking ass after an injury, on the day i threw my back out, I ket nerfing, and even attended an indoor war later that night.

Since both my nerf related injuries are lame, I'll relay a joyful quote from the +bow diy thread...

And I can't find my taps and I cut most of one finger off because I forgot how it felt to use a scroll saw. The finger might heal AFTER they reattach it, so its all on hold now...


Since he hasn't been active for over a year now, I thought it necessary to add one of the worst ever modding injury's to this thread.

Some of this is seriously creeping me out.

From over the course of 2-3 years of carving, during which I chopped the tip of my thumb off, sliced my left trigger finger open, as well as my left thumb, I have learned to be careful. The two times I forgot to be careful during nerfing I sliced my left trigger finger open again, now I have two scars that make an X shape, and I sliced my right trigger finger open on the joint ~2 1/2 weeks ago and it's still numb and healing.

EDIT: Got rid of the extra crap, didn't relies how long that was getting.
EDIT 2:

modding: getting cut with just about the sharpest kitchen knife in the world. had to get stitches and the scar is still puffy. (but it's not infected).

What were you doing? Never seen a mod involving kitchen knives.

Cole was banned a while ago; he's still active on other sites, though not necessarily popular there.

As for injuries, the worst was when I set my pants on fire with a hot glue gun while making the original FoamSlinger. After applying glue, I hastily put down my glue gun , so I could attach the parts. Unfrtunately, in my haste, I put it down on my leg. I began to feel the burning sensation about 20 seconds later.

Overall, nothing too bad, though.

Well after reading every comment I think I'll get off my ass and leave a comment. I was modded a maverick for my friend and the cocking bar holder things broke. So me being the lazy person I just tried to superglue it back togeather. When trying to put the two halves togeather, they got stuck then slamed togeather, which caused some zap-a-gap to shoot right at my face. Luckly it hit just to the right of my left eye, but some of the dried glue did get into it, so my eye was stinging for the next day or so.

I also have burnt myself with hot glue, accidentally cut myself, and crushed my many appendages, but I've done it so many times I don't aven count it anymore.
