    I don't understand how you can do that. That isn't an easy thing for me to do. Mostly becuase I wear a full-face. Although, I have fallen off my chair forwards, and have to get stiches above my right eye.

    My buddy cracked his orbit (cavity in skull where eye is) while we were surfing. The board popped him right in the face. At first we thought it was just a nose bleed, but there was some swelling and pain around his eye so we stopped by a clinic on the way home.

    I was punched in the face and it fractured my orbit once. I thought I was just going to have a black eye, then I got home and blew my nose and saw my eyeball moving in the mirror. Didn't require surgery or anything, just healed on it's own...
