People Explain How They Broke Their First Bone

No one forgets their first broken bone.

I could barely walk when I broke my first (and thankfully only) bone; my mother slipped and fell on ice while holding me, and my skull was cracked. My face is subtly yet noticeably asymmetrical as a result.

Redditor u/burriters1 dared to ask, "How did you break your first bone?" and people happily shared all the funny, embarrassing, and gory details.

10. The insane gym teacher 

"Gym teacher in high school was also obsessive basketball coach. Would wax the floors once a year and threaten students within an inch of their life not to ruin them. So, we stopped wearing shoes in gym class. Freshly waxed basketball court + socks = lots of broken things."

9. I didn't know this could happen, poor babies!

"I was born, they had to break my collar bone to safely birth me."

8. The reason there's warning screens​

"My Mum accidentally hit me with a Wii Remote while playing Baseball in Wii Sports and completely shattered my left hand. She told me before to stay away, so I guess it was my own fault, this was around 8 years ago at the age of 14"

7. This brother is a Kevin McCallister wannabe

"My brother set up a booby trap by spraying shaving cream all over the floor and I slipped and fell and broke my finger. I was 11."

6. Watch where you're running!

"I was sprinting trying to get the ball in football and this short b****** walks in front of me and I jumped out of the way and there you go, I broke my leg. I was 13"

5. Stuntman in the making

"About 4 or 5, after watching Evil Knievel jump something on TV I tried to 'jump' my tricycle down the 3 steps on our front porch. Cracked my skull and got my first concussion."

4. Overall, it was a great gift

"Brand new roller skates for Christmas. Third day I had them I hit a gravel patch, braced myself for the fall and broke my right wrist."

3. Are you excused from gym class forever when this happens?

"I was on 2nd grade playing football with a bunch of 5th graders and I was the goalie, one of them kicked the ball towards the goal but it was a really strong kick for 2nd grade me, and when I tried to block the ball it knocked my hand into the post and I broke most of my fingers, not a pleasantday experience."

2. In the doctor’s defense, rubber gloves are slippery

"Broke my collar bone as soon as I came into this world. Slipped out of the doctor's hands apparently."

1. I am guilty of becoming a tornado

Giphy

"Was watching Taz from Looney Tunes do his 'tornado' thing. I decided to imitate him by doing spinning jumps on the sofa. You can guess how it went."

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
