About 6 years ago I was in the passenger side of my friend's mini-van when he took a highway off-ramp too quick and veered in to the ditch and the Van rolled right back up on to the road. We were all ok after, but I was pretty lucky since when the van landed on it's right side, my window smashed and I hit the road. I don't know how my head didn't smack the pavement, since my shoulder sure did. In the end I was just bruised and My hand was pretty mangled from where I punched the road (no stitches though).
What was funny was that two days later when I woke up, my hand had become infected and swelled right up. I opened the door to go to the hospital to discover the worst snowstorm of the year. I couldn't tell if the buses were running, so I had to hitchhike to the hospital with my mangled bloated hand too swollen to make a decent hitcher symbol.
Also, I got hit by a van two weeks ago. Again, I only suffered scrapes, bruises and a partially torn ligament on my right knee, but what was lucky was that I got hit from behind while reading a map on a billboard and the van plowed straight in to the billboard. I still can't quite figure out how I didn't end up between the two, which while it might not have killed me, certainly would have put an end to my walking days. Here's a pick
Yeah, I was standing maybe 3 feet in front of the map, right at the middle of it, but somehow it sent me flying diagonally away from the map. I don't remember the hit itself. I just remember jumping off the ground, screaming "I JUST GOT HIT BY A F#$@ING CAR!" and then getting woozy.
I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!
