    Dang guys, I'm bored.
    So brag to BF and show us what MAD scars you have and how'd you get it?

    Here's one of mine:
    I got it by the end of Grade 8 in Design and Tech class. I didn't use the C-Clamp with the Drill Press which was loaded with a 3.5" drill bit.
    physics hertz.

    My most prominent scar is the one I've got one right between my eyes from a frisbee during an Ultimate game last winter. My bike related scars are limited to a little bit of road rash from a couple of 0mph falls this summer and nicks all over my hands from general maintenance.

    I've got a whole bunch on my leg and a few on my arms.
    Here's what the last accident looked like, you can see where it sheared through most of the layers of skin, through the fat layer, and into the flesh underneath.

    nice. I got some injuries that looked like that when I slid down and fell off a roof.

    and am I right to assume that many of us in here have the classic chainring-puncture row of scars on the back of their calf? because I do.

    Two small scars either side of knee from traction pin. Hit by car fractured femur in three places.
    One about an inch and a half long on my left knee from a chainsaw incident. Above that are lighter ones where the bar kicked off my knee cap and climbed up my thigh a bit.
    One about an inch at the knuckle of my right pinkie where a lock back knife failed to stay locked.
    Numerous small ones on my chest from hitting a barbed wire fence.
    One on right wrist from a jagged lip on a fender
    Couple of crooked fingers from breaks(Or is it brakes?) Same with a couple of toes.
    Gouged my shins up from trials. A couple of them you can still feel the groove in the bone at the scar.
    Best one is in my retina from a steel sliver. In the right light I can see it(from the inside)

    I win:



    ... and that's not even me.

    As far as my scars go:
    - I've got a nice one on my left index finger. I almost cut my finger off with pruning sheers when I was a kid (I saw bone and thought it'd heal fine w/ just a bandaid - nope).
    - There's about a 4" long one on my left shin from a tube of toothpaste. Remeber the oldschool tubes that were made of metal? I was in Cub Camp or something and it was sticking out of my backpack pocket. I picked up my backpack and it opened my shin up like a razor. I didn't even feel it.
    - My right hand has some scars across it from putting my fist through a wall (the wall won in retrospect).
    - My stomach looks like a ****ing jigsaw puzzle. I've been opened up more than a dozen times and there's a foot-long seam running up me (about an inch wide), with a few more nearby to compliment it. I don't even have a belly button anymore. That got lost along the way at some point.
    - My junkie scars. I had a mainline threaded from my artery at the elbow right into my heart. That was in for a few months until it got infected (if you've seen Requiem for a Dream ... ya, like that). The rest of my arms over the veins are covered in little i.v. scars, but they're starting to fade.

    My dad's got some good ones ... multiple surgeries ... knife wounds, accidents. My mom's got a dent in her shin from a car accident - a bucket that was sitting between her legs crushed part of her shin bone.

    ... and my sister had her big toenails ripped out. No, seriously - they don't grow back.

    I dunno... I almost had my right leg removed when I was a kid -- broke the tibia and fibula in 2 places each, only thing holding my foot to my upper leg was the main artery running to the foot and the main nerve cluster. The entirety of the skin on the front of my leg was removed. Took six months of surgery to fix it up... and I still have a leg, yay.

    The grafting was so bad that they couldn't internally fix the pins on the bones -- needed to do external fixation. Yeah.

    this thread ROCKS!

    (jk I am about to puke.)

    which reminds me. I have a pretty sweet hole in my shoulder where I had a rock stuck in it. Not my biggest scar, but I am always surprised when I see it. The concussion erased all memory of how it happened, but I am pretty sure it involved a bicycle.

    Am I the only one that has a couple sprocket wounds on the back of his right calf? (aka reasons for me to love single speed #578 and #579, or 578-590 if you count each gear-tooth wound individually). I got those when I was pretty young, if I had to pick a "favorite" sort of wound, puncture wounds would be it. No stitches, no pain, no blood.

    I have a scar on the inside of my arm (opposite of my elbow) from when a car ran over my arm while I rode my bike. I was 6. The driver was intoxicated.

    This is the "inner half" of the scar. The outer half is a bit worse, but gives you an idea. Mind you, this scar is like 16 years old at this point

    Being run over by a Ford Bronco -- who then backs up -- is not a good time

    no, you're not the only one. on a geared bike, i was riding on the smaller inside chainring one night and a little inebriated...when i got off my bike, i noticed my leg was bleeding. when i cleaned it up, i realized i'd been impaled in the back of my leg by the outer chainring.

    yeah, i hear you on that one.

    i have a couple of small, msyterious scars on my left hand. no idea where they came from. it just looks like a couple drops of acid rain hit my hand or something. those are my only scars. i also have a chipped tooth. i'm just glad the wrecks that messed my face up for a couple weeks each didn't leave scars on my face.

    That's my left index finger. The scar is hard to see now; it's been almost 10 years. Cut through the bone with a bowie knife. Luckily, I missed the joint by a couple millimeters. I have no loss of functionality, other than some nerve damage. I used to be able to hold the finger over a candle indefinitely, but since I've regained some nerve function.

    These days I just blame the scar on a drivetrain accident
