Learn to spell. Christ.

And my worst? Either when I knocked out a pair of teeth, broke my hand, and got a concussion, or when I snapped my left radius in half, leaving me with a stainless plate and six screws in my arm.

Yes, I do. That doesn't change the fact that I had to shell a ton of cash out of my own pocket, anyways.

I haven't really hurt myself too badly.. last year crashed in some gravel and tore some of the flesh out of my knee, which took a long time to heal and it was pretty painful to walk for like a month.. still have a big scar there.

Landed on my face on some rocks and scratched up my eyebrow and chin pretty badly, also shoulder. Maybe I need to try and land with something other than my face? lol

I'm trying to think of a diplomatic response, and I've got nothing.

The worst thing that ever happened to me. Is when I took my Haro off a 4ft tabletop,got more air then I excepted and was afraid to land so I bailed off the bike. Sprained my right hands wrist
and hit my head on the concrete (I was wearing a helmet) so it didn`t get that messed up.
