    totally trashed.... what are the chances?

    in the space of 2 days the following happened to me:

    day1:
    - got hit in the head with a weed trimmer(lawn mower)
    - got hit in the head with a skateboard
    - hit my head on the coping of the local bowl
    *above while wearing no helmet*

    day2:
    - fell off big wallride transfer and:
    1. bruised the hell out of my ribs
    2. dislocated my shoulder(2nd time this year)
    3. small cut on my head from sprocket
    - burst my tube
    - got landed on while filming a dodgy trick by my one mate
    - got dumped

    what are the chances?

    Back in the day (when I didn't know jack about bikes)I poped 6 tubes in 1 day. I was to stupid to realize that there must be some sort of problem, like my rim bending/getting such a huge flat spot that my spokes/nipples almost instantly punctured my tube when it was inflated. Lesson learned I guess.
