I was 7 or 8 years old as I remember when I got hold of a long bullwhip and brought it to school. After some time of easy does it practice with it during recess, in front of a lot of other students, I reared back and gave the whip all I had aiming to hit a basketball on the grass in front of me. It was a powerful but clumsy try and my timing was way, way off. The tip came nowhere near the basketball. Instead, like a lightning bolt, the tip hit me solidly behind the right ear. I remember a crack of thunder, astounding white hot paralyzing pain, then nothing. The witnesses say I passed out instantly. Some kids thought I had killed myself and started screaming and crying. For over a month my ear looked like a purple catcher's mitt.
Any army brats of Barkley Elementary, about '63-'64, Fort Campbell, Ky remember the playground legend of Bullwhip Bob?
I had testicular cancer when i was 17, but I wouldnt consider my worst physical pain. Come to think of it, I never experienced a really painful injury (been in a car accident and broke a few bones, though), I must be a lucky dude.
Recurring kidney stones over the past 20 years. Had litotrypsy (ultrasound, which itself is not too painful) 6 times to break up the stones so the particles could pass. Cannot tolerate opiates so am really looking forward to the next stones to form.
I've also been hit by a car, but that didn't hurt at all (yay adrenaline).
Me too. I just bounced off into a ditch. Only a bruise from that.
Slamming 3 fingers in a truck door... hard (it wouldn't latch else). Lost two nails and some skin. No broken bones. Worst part was that it locked closed and I had to dig out the keys from my right jean pocket with my free left hand and unlock it to free myself.
9 years old: ALMOST managed a back flip off of a couch and landed on my arm. Broke my forearm bone and bicep arm bone in half. Passed out on the car ride over to the children's hospital.
18 years old: Got hit from behind playing Junior A hockey, dislocated shoulder. Instead of the arm bone going under and getting jammed outside of the socket (which is the most common way an arm dislocates) well, that little ****er decided to brake through my shoulder socket. Ripped muscle and shattered cartilage.
The night after the surgery was almost worse than the incident itself.
I know of a Polish guy who got drunk and woke up with a prolapsed ar.sehole.
AHaH, Jesus ****!!!! Please elaborate. o.O

Remember my mother and grandfather holding my head down a sink and pouring water into the ear to get the fvcker out, and having it take up to 4 of them to restrain me. I think for around 5-6 years after the event I would only sleep on my stomach with the the right side of my head on the pillow and the bed covers over my left ear, the trauma really took a while to go away.
I still remember the sound of that thing clawing at my ear drum, I just wanted to die, I've had very many physical injuries in my time, even minor fractures but none have ever come close to the damage that little thing did to me.
Christ.. I'm gonna have to stuff my ears with cotton balls when I go to sleep in a few hours, after reading this.
