This just reminded me of two bad falls I had when I was still a skier (under 10)... one of them I wiped out and my ski hit the side of my head above my ear. Left a 2" gash but no need for stitches as the skull is right there.

The other one was in the spring in Ontario riding on corn snow, I wiped out and my face hit the snow and it just tore it to shit. Blood everywhere, my dad took it in stride but my mom was freaking when I got home. I still snowboard with my dad 25 years later!
