:MUha: :MUha: :MUha: :MUha: :MUha: :MUha: Aah great entertainment! Nothing like the humiliation and misfortune of others to cheer one's day.
Anyhow, to be fair, here are a few clangers from my shady past..
* Grade 3, primary school. "The Hill". It was the road going around the school. A particular section was about 250m long, nice slope, the popular place to be with the old-school skinny skateboards. I had just discovered Singer sewing machine oil, and the benefits it held for wheel bearings. The day before, I had dazzled all and sundry with my speed down the mountain with this strange new additive. We all rode them sitting down of course. This day, I was out to impress again, and decided to start waaay back from the usual spot, to ensure terminal velocity would be reached by the bottom of the hill. Well, I certainly reached terminal velocity, and I really impressed the other kids, but about 30m from the usual slow down point, I developed possibly the most violent case of "death wobbles" known to mankind. The resulting stack cost me quite a few layers of skin from arms, legs, and back. To enhance the effect, my schoolshirt was torn to shreds. Most impressive!
* Typical schoolyard argument, between myself and another guy in my year. He makes it turn nasty, by throwing a punch .. I duck, I return with a right hander to his ribcage, but he's taken a half step forward, and so my fist is not orientated quite right. I ended up hitting him with the outside knuckle on the right hand, very hard, which broke the first bone behind the little finger. I proceed to nurse my hand, while screaming "aaaah that bloody hurt".. to the amusement of onlookers. The other guy thinks this is hillarious and stands there laughing at me. Great moment in time. However I had the last laugh, as I had broken one of his ribs, and he came out of it worse than I did.
There are many more but they can wait for another day :dead:
