Yeah, I was in the middle of the first of two games of football, back to back playing as goalkeeper, when I jumped up to punch the ball away and someone kicked me right in the middle of the nose. It exploded, but apart from the blood I didn't actually feel any pain. Then halfway through the second game my vision blurred and I couldn't see properly. Turned out my nose had actually been driven up into my skull, and had bruised my brain, leaving me with a severe concussion.

broke my collar bone when i was two, i was leaing on the inside of the car door and banging on the window with my hand, and my brother opened up the door, causing me to fall on the garage floor. Then I had a nice long period when I didn't break anything, till I was thirteen and broke my foot falling down the stairs. Next major injury wasn't a broken bone, but it hurt just as much (torn ligament in my knee) at a volleyball practice (beach, it was the summer) i was running to get the ball, all of a sudden my knee locked up, then snapped backwards, I just collapsed instantly, barely able to breathe, then the coach and our trainer carried me off the court, and within a minute it was already turing purple and my team was trying to guess what color it was gonna turn next. that kept me from playing for the rest of the summer (I was fourteen when that happened). Sprained my ankle about a dozen times, hyperextended the muscles in my arm at the elbow, had to keep my arm bent and not move it for about a week. And I've permanently messed up my shoulders, giving me chronic pinched nerves in my back sending horrible. crippling pains up my neck and down my arms. These last ones are all from volleyball, and skiing has permanently messed up my knees too, so every once in a while i have to pop a fair amount of painkillers if I want to ski a whole day.

Oh my god! Still... we can blame that when we dont agree on things LOL

Despite being very accident prone, I've never broken anything or spent any time in hospital. My brothers friend though, he was playing football once and this kid kicked his jaw instead of the ball, breaking his jaw. The worst thing was though that about a day after the op to sort it out, he woke up in the morning to find that he had been sleeping on the broken side and it had all caved back in.
