People can be stupid. And Darwinism can take place in even the most harmless circumstances. These injuries, while scary and painful, are also really f**king dumb. And these Redditors will tell you firsthand.
u/Kamioni asked: What's the dumbest injury you've sustained from a seemingly harmless act or scenario?
That's strangely impressive.Giphy
I dislocated my thumb once, because I didn't realize I was sitting on it and pulled my hand up too hard.
You didn't know you were sitting on your hand? Were you a baby or are you just that oblivious?
Punched myself in the testicles while fluffing pillows.
I witnessed a guy I was working with, get stung on the upper leg by a wasp. He slapped the wasp with his hand to kill it. He was holding a hammer in that hand and perfectly hit himself in the nuts with the hammer.
That takes skill.Giphy
Pinched 3 nerves in my neck by looking to the left, trying to get dressed one morning.
My head was turned slightly to the left the rest of the stay and my friend wouldn't stop laughing at me. I guess I looked pretty goofy.
I have a relatively massive scar on my right hand from trying to open a spaghettios can while sh*tfaced.
What's the story you tell people so they don't think you're an idiot?
I was jogging with my dog and zoned out and then tripped over my dog and broke my hand
But was the dog okay?
A buddy of mine tore his tricep during sex. Like, not even crazy weird positions, just on top, flexed his arm funny, tore a tricep, had to have his wife drive him to the ER to have it looked at.
Permanent damage. Might not ever get back to 100% functions. From standard, dude-on-top going at it.
Crutching out of the hospital after having my cast removed, because I tore the ligaments in my ankle. Someone walked into me, I fell and could go back in, torn the ligaments in my other ankle.
Dude this is hilarious.
Too much love.
Had my rib broken receiving a hug.
Who the f**k did you hug??? A bear???
My boyfriend was happy to see me. Too much you could even say.
But were the jorts ok?Giphy
Stabbed myself with a fixed blade hunting knife trying to make a pair of jorts while I was wearing the jeans. Over five hours in the ER trying to stop the bleeding with multiple sets of stitches and staples.
Yes I was intoxicated.
You sound like the kind of person I want to be best friends with, you had me at jorts.
