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."

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
