I just got mine today, right before I turn 20, so how 'bout the rest of you?

I got my first stitches when I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled several months before I went into the Marines back in 80. I was 19.

I was 6 months old when I had my first stitches.

Between 1 and 2 years old. I managed to get a finger caught in the gears of the winch on my dad's boat trailer; it cut the tip of my index finger off. They reattached it. I have feeling in that finger. There are some noticable scars, and that nail grows slower than the others but it grows. Not bad for 1967 medicine, wouldn't you say?

You just gave your age away. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I was four. I got pushed off a wooden platform thingie at the park, and cut the back of my ear. The better part of the story is when they tried to stitch it up, I totally nailed the doctor as he came at me with the needle and he almost fell on his ***. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

3 yrs old, about 7 or 8 stitches just above my eye. I got smacked with a screen door .. I ran up to it right as someone was opening it from the inside.

I was 4 years old. I was bitten by my grandparent's dog right on the face and top of the head. Still have the scars to prove it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I was either four or five the first time. I think it was about a year later that I got them a second time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Never say never. I wasn't the accident prone one in my family, my brother was. That changed when I was 16 when I cut the tip of my thumb off with a table saw, in shop class in the 10th grade, a week before school was out. No stitches then, but a freaked out shop teacher.

Don't you have to have more than one event like that to say accident prone? That I'd just call a mistake or accident but it doesn't make you accident prone.

I was just a wee lad. Let's just say the doctor got a pretty good tip. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Since then, I have had a broken wrist, crushed finger tips (that had to be amputated), and most recently, at least one fractured rib (and I have no idea how that happened).

1/2" of one and 3/4" of the other.

Conveyor chain at a car wash caught the tips and crushed them. I can say for a fact that we guys are stupid. We tend to do stupid stuff during the course of our lives.

The good thing is my fingers are still usable. The fact I am missing the fingernail on one of my fingers is a plus, it doesn't scratch.

Yeah PK, I have seen vids of it. I remember seeing Joe Theismann getting his leg broke while playing against the Giants. That was awful to see.

Well, let's see. I was about 4 bitten by a dog but the real question is how many times since then have I had stitches.

Being a former Police officer and playing college football and outdoorsman. Take a wild guess. LOL.
