So what you got? What projectiles have impacted you before?
Baseballs? Falling rocks? Bullets? Egads!

Bullets have impacted me, but not in the manner to which I assume you are referring. Actually, it's more like the act of shooting bullets which has impacted me. It's a heck of a lot of fun!
Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
My bike helmet has protected me from falling acorns.
Countries I've ridden in: US, Canada, Ireland, UK, Germany, Netherlands, France, China, Singapore, Malaysia
States I've ridden in: Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, California, Nevada, Missouri, Colorado
And the man (well, 13 year old) that committed said act:
Paul and I were walking on the patio with our *****s, and the safety on his slipped. The ricochet got me in the shin.
I've done much worse to myself in bike wrecks.
Cost me a few stitches but it's one of those things I've been able to hold over his head for thirty years.

I got shot with a paintball by some punks driving by while jogging once.

I was biking once and had warm sticks of butter thrown at me.
Waste of perfectly good butter
While at work, a small jar of mayonaise. They missed.
I love pho long time.
A 7.62 mm bullet fired out of an **** when I was working in Africa, in the left leg. It penetrated the truck door in Southern Zaire and broke both my Tibia and Fibula.
on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

Didn't happen to me but gotta share. A friend was hit in the head by a head of cabbage thrown from a moving car. It knocked him out.
I've been hit by lots of things, but the worst was probably a broken pencil to the eye. While cycling I've had a water balloon thrown at me (they missed) and I was hit by what I think was a banana. I've also been hit by what I think was either a bat, a bird, or a VERY big insect.
.45 cal musket ball....it hit a rock or something, and then hit me in the chest on the rebound. Knocked the breath out of...but never pierced skin.

A few cars, and a tree almost fell on me once.
One time on a bicycle, a bee flew right into the tip of my nose and bounced off without stinging. The one that flew down my shirt on a narrow, twisty mountain road while on a motorcycle, however, managed to sting me three times before I found a spot to pull over. Bleh.
