The hill isn't that steep, but it was long and I didn't touch my brakes. It is also just a sidewalk - one of the really rough blacktop sidewalks.

I got down the hill and was probably going 20MPH or so when I flipped forward. My hands went down and mostly protected my face as I arched my back... But, my hands were pulled under my body. It ripped the skin off the back of both arms and the top of my legs and the back of my hands. Ripped the face off the watch I was wearing... That ranks way up there for pain factor for me. But, in a couple of weeks it was all healed and didn't bug me the way my sprained ankle still does 8 year later.

Oooh, that does sound like it ranks up there on the pain meter. Man, compared to all of you guy's injuries, mine sounds like a little boo boo. Oh well, it's not like we're competeing for the all time best injury award. And heck, isn't it good not to get hurt?
