I once got through to the next round of a Karate tournament when my opponent tried to kick me, I blocked with my shin, and his big toe dislocated with an audible "crack!" When he put the foot down, he fell over and the his big toe was stuck out almost 90 degrees from the rest. Best bit was he tried to crack it back into place, and passed out as soon as he touched it. Bit of excitement having the ambulance and everything!

My wife does that so often, she has no cartilage left on her little toe. When she was teaching (and tired) she used to catch it on a wardrobe when she got up to the loo in the night. Apparently, it's bloody agony!

I punched my boss in the face about a year before I went freelance, 'cos he called my female housemate who denied his advances some choice names. When he threatened to fire me I reminded him of how many projects I had in progress and he thought better of it.

Violence isn't the solution. But sometimes it's fun.

So... can I punch you, Boss?

We have a pretty close diet. Minus the coffee.

I once went, with a friend, who wanted to get his nipple pierced. I have never seen anything so grim in my life. First they "numb" the area by putting some cream on it. Then she seemed to get the biggest, bluntest needle she could find (seriously, it looked like a knitting needle), get hold of my mates nipple with what can only be described as pliers, pull it to the other side of the room, then ram the needle through. I nearly vomited, he looked down at this thing skewering his chest and passed out clean, and she blithely carried on sticking a ring in before waking him up.

It didn't put him off though, he did go and have ahem other areas of his anatomy pierced.

You're welcome mate! It reminds me of another mate who was petrified of needles. He was a rough, tough mechanic but show him a needle and he'd either run or kick the crap out of you. One day, he broke a tooth. He called the dentist, who told him he'd need to have an injection to numb the pain. Obviously, that was right out. So, after trying and failing to remove his own tooth with pliers, he took a Dremel and cut it into pieces, then pulled the pieces out. Looked like an explosion in a ketchup factory.

I'm terrified of needles too. 6'2 and could easily pass out if I saw it being used. Could never be a junkie 😊😊😊 My least favourite expression 'sharp scratch coming up'. Least favourite film moment, Dustin Hoffman's dentistry scene in Marathon Man 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱

@sorethumbed @Red620Ti I'm not great with needles either. I can handle having blood drawn, and I even had my lip pierced during my younger years, but I don't do well with injections or IVs. Let's just say that it's tough to get me to the doctor/hospital when I know I need either of those things.

Crikey, that's grim.

My old housemate used to be a piercer, and she came back with some stories that are pretty much too gross to repeat. Just horrendous.

I got my nose pierced when I was about 19 and the piercer used the wrong piercing gun and attachment. Basically just blasted a hole in my nose that was so big that the metal stud fell through it. I have never felt so much pain. Took about 6 months to heal up and then I went and got it done again by someone who knew what they were doing.

Not even your ears?

I had my left ear done when I was boy (around 19) and didn't bother reading any of the stuff about cleaning it, etc........Then it got infected, swelled up and when I took out the ear ring, kind of burst everywhere........That was pretty grim. Cleaning it out smarted a bit, but I continued to wear my earrings with pride until I grew up, about 4 years later.....

I've lived T, its not always pretty!

One time I did go for a walk in the woods, and came across a beautiful glade absolutely stuffed with bluebells......That was a lovely moment

If you are really lucky I'll tell you about the births of my children!

Living is one way to put it.

And I'm good. The only thing I hate more than children is the child-birthing process.
