What caused the most injuries for "Your Generation"?

In my case, as a child of the 1970's, it was tripping over the bell bottom jeans and falling off of our platform shoes! The second injury was to our vision from retinal burns caused by the clothing patterns







What was your generation and what caused the most injury in yours?

German baton grenades hurled across the no-man's land. But me and the rest of the doughboys didn't mind, since we knew we would win it all for President Wilson!

I was born in the late '60s but I came of age in the '80s, so I'm going to say cocaine, and cocaine inspired hair caused us the most pain.

TV, computers and game consoles. The physical inactivity caused by these three is increasingly killing young people prematurely.

seeds popping caused a few minor injuries back in the college days. Eventually people learned to clean it pretty well before hand.

Skateboarding and trampolines were the most documented forms of injury as a kid (90s). I have to agree with tv's and more importantly video games though! Combine those, with Bagel Bites, and you got a real killer.

Street fights...

then

football/hockey

then

snowboarding/mountain biking

all depends on my age, the crowd I "played" with and where I lived.

I personally have known more than my fair share of druggies (heck this town is sooo pure white its scary) I don't know anyone that has died. I consider myself lucky.

Good point.
And those blue super balls, the ones that were seemingly made of flubber and could break your jaw after it rebounded off the pavement.
