    I have scars but this tops them all. I broke my chest by catching a edge on a 55ft long table top in Tremblant snowboarding... I have a 4 inch crack down my sternum and 3 collapsed ribs that attach to the sternum, they kinda sink in now.

    The coolest scar I got was from a Tarzan swing into a lake. I went on it and realized thats theirs so much goose crap so I didnt let go so instead I slammed into a tree and got a tree branch stabbed into my thigh. I now have a heart scar where that is.

    I have a nice little surgerical scar on my right forearm from where the surgeon removed a ruptured cyst. The funny story is that I was so drugged up on Valium that I was flirting with all the nurses, in front of my fiancee!

    I don't know under what post i could have have said this earlier but I have a scar on my left elbow. Got it when i was probably 6 or 7 and was a hero for being the first kid in class to get stitches. I walked proudly with the bandage on my arm.


    * I got this scar when i was walking home from school while looking through my binoculars turned backwards. Yep, cars seemed to be in the distance were actually closer. One hit me and i fell on my backpak and i guess that saved me but my elbows got it bad.

    my girlfriend is a nurse... no hitting on her

    I have a scar on my right kneecap. I was swiming in a pool in Europe when I was 14. There was one of those underwater lights built into the wall about a foot under the water. When I went to pull myself out of the pool, there was a screw about an inch or so hanging out of the light area. It cut me so damn deep.

    The scar is about 1 inch long running up to the middle of my knee cap.

    6 scars from bullets passing through, 4 more from grazes.

    3 from cyst removals.

    1 scar on my head from a nail penetrating my skull (was 3).

    1 on pinky from hitting a car (my fault).

    3 on right wrist/forearm from yanking my hand out of an engine (mechanic said it wouldn't start...then it did, couldn't move my hand for 3 months).

    I've got a scar on the front of my chest, and one in exactly the same region on my back - from a bout of shingles which went straight through my nerves back to front.

    I have a couple of scars on my left-hand wrist, and one on my forehead. The wrist one was through punching a door window by accident (or was it?) when I was 8 or 9 years old. As for the forehead, it's a mystery...

    I'll post the snaps later on today.

    Don't mean to laugh at you, dude, but that's hysterical.

    I have no scars luckily, but I have a couple of chipped teeth thanks to some bad falling off of my skateboard when I was 15 . It's not that noticable to anyone but me, but it annoys me nonetheless.

    Great topic!!!

    I have a scar under my left eye from when I was five: a playmate who was jumping up and down on the sofa fell, and caught me in the face with the edge of her shoe or something.

    I have a large 8+ year old welt on one finger on my right hand, from when I was working with a heavy duty glue gun (not the crap arts and crafts one, but an industrial one). A glob of hot melted glue landed on it, melting away some of the skin under it.
