    Dancing Chocobo Have you ever broken a bone?

    I've gotten lucky and avoided this fate somehow!

    Nope but suspected hairline fracture once. And there is the time I smurfed up my tailbone but nothing officially broken!

    No. I'm expecting it to happen eventually though. Especially now that I am without healthcare. That would just be my luck

    Wrecked an ATV pretty nastily over Thanksgiving, but somehow walked away without breaking anything. My sternum was sore for months though. Other than that, I've been fortunate enough to not break anything despite some...questionable physical decisions.

    I'm discussing my 108, er, 111 favorite games of all time in THIS THREAD so go check it out and join the conversation!

    Ankle (car) and hand (light bulb). I say hand, technically it's the finger that broke but the break was within the palm area of the hand, so yeah.

    Yes, twice, but neither time in a serious way.

    First time was when I was wrestling with my cousin on Easter when I was like 5 or 6 years old. I jumped off a couch, he rolled out of the way, I slammed into the ground and somehow broke my collarbone.

    Second time I was 19 or 20, really troutfaced drunk, tossing a football around with a friend. I ended up all-out sprinting to try and catch up to a pass he'd thrown, tripped over my own legs, and jammed my right index finger into the ground. Ended up being a broken distal phalanx. Doc wanted to break it and reset it, but this was right before finals week, and I didn't want to be all looped out on Vicodin when trying to study for and/or take my exams. So to this day the end of my right index finger doesn't completely straighten out when I hold my hand out flat. Not really noticeable unless I specifically point it out to someone, and tbh I kind of actually like it. I will be 80 years old and will always remember the time my stupid drunken ass injured myself because of my perpetually crooked finger.

    Hasn't happened to me yet (thankfully).

    Nope, and I'm hoping it never will.

    I can't really say. I once dropped my tv on two of my toes and they got swollen and purple and I couldn't move them. But the very next day I had pancreatitis, and my pain was focused elsewhere. Soon I was in the hospital on morphine. So, if I did break them, they healed up while I was drugged for other reasons.
    mfw you post

    Broken nose multiple times, broken hand and broken ankle.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Nope. Not for lack of trying sometimes though.

    I broke my foot in high school because I was jumping over stuff I shouldn't have been and landed bad on a hill.

    I also cracked a couple of ribs after going through the Marine Corps Martial Art Instructor course.

    Yep, broke my left middle finger in three places falling down a metal ladder-well. Ended up having to have surgery because it never got set. It now no longer sits strait and some days won't bend properly.
