I broke my toe when I was six, three of my friends and I were carrying huge rocks trying to make a fort, it dropped on my toe.

About age 10 I had a head on collision with a jeep while riding my friends '10-speed'. Cracked some ribs.

I broke my nose boxing when I was 14. Colliding with the jeep was probably the worst.

Must have been some pillow.

We did some pretty extreme pillowfighting and my sister had a hell of a swing.

Junk food malnutrition, which reduced my physical abilities.

My sis soon learned that one swift kick to the groin would quickly put an end to any fights we had as kids.

Broke a collarbone at 18 months old. And that was just the start.

By time I was 18 YO, I'd broken collarbones 3 more times plus my left wrist. Naturally I'm a lefty.

None of my collarbone breaks were cause by bicycle riding.

Hit by a car on a bicycle when I was 13. I was riding on the Axle extenders on the rear axle, holding onto my buddies shoulders. Last thing I remembered was seeing the car. Story goes I flew over the car, wound up in the ER. Nothing broke, just lots of road rash. Lucky
