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.
This happened to me when I was 14 or so. I was brushing my hair, and my neck just felt like it seized up. It was at the start of a vacation with my friend in Florida.
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.
