    Wailed myself in the forehead full force with a 1/2 ratchet today /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Was tightening shackle bolts and slipped off, BAM full force into my nose and forehead. Quick headache and my buddy stopped by like 5 minutes later. I didn't tell him what I did he just knew cause there is a ncie bump on my head.

    I did the same exact thing- 1/2" ratchet right between the eyes.
    Felt real smart after that; after the flash of white light that is. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    know the feeling...was putting my cb antenna on and found the dumb a**(that be me /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif) who put the mount on didn't tighten it down enough so the antenna flops around and I can’t get to the back side very easy cause I have side panels in and they hit up on the roll bar....

    my CB antennas ran through the vent windows and mounted on the mirrors when I had a CB. The CB will go back in if I can find a place to mount it(removed center console in favor of bench). But this time I will run the antenna wires between the door and fender and maybe notch the door so not to pinch cause the vent window rubber is all distorted and ruined from doing that. = Air noise.

    Oh yeck yea... I was pulling the floor jack up the driveway in a rush a few weeks back. I was pulling hard to accelerate up my sloped driveway - you know leaning forward some, head down... FORGOT THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR WAS OPEN. I caught me just above my forehead, JAMMED my head down and caught the lower part of my neck, and DROPPED me on the front lawn like I was a rag doll. Real fun. Yea, K5 headache. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I've got a good lump thats turning black and blue and scratched me pretty good. Didn't bleed but my mom thinks it will scar. its about 1.5" above a scar I have right between my eyes from a scope /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. My dad kept saying chicks dig scars, I scar easily lately, have them all over my arms. I told my dad and he just said he wished he couldn't sympathize.

    All I care about scars is that I want to get tatts on my arms and wouldn't want to scar them up.

    one time i allllmost knocked myself completely unconscious. I was laying under the front of my rig and working on something... finally finished for the day and i wanted to get up. Well, i did the thing where you kinda kicked your feet up in the air, then throw em down for momentum to roll forward into a crouching position. One problem... I needed about 2 more inches of clearance for my forhead to get past the bumper. lol!! thankfully it was my rounded old stock bling bumper and not my square-edged KMA. Either way, it hurt like hell, had me very dazed for a while and left a very sexy welt dead center on my forhead. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I have a friend who almost stabbed his brain with a screwdriver. I forget what he was doing, but he was prying on something, the screwdrived came loose and he shoved it right into his nose. I almost pissed my pants I was laughing so hard.
