[QUOTE=henry06x;515836]Fractured tail bone.
Did something to my left shoulder to the point I couldn't really move it for 2 weeks. Never saw a doc tho
Sprained both wrists one week apart.
Strained abdomen muscle.
Jamed my knee coming up short on a jump to where it was sore for a week or two.
Misc lumps and bruises on the ass, hips, shins and what not.
That's about it. Nothing major mostly because I'm too scared to go big and risk fucking my self up.

Nothing major?
If you fracture your tail bone, your fucked for a year if your lucky.

I don't mean no boarding for a year, were talking daily shots of morphine & not a wink of sleep for a few months.
By the time you are able to walk, you can't. Your muscles are so weak & you weigh more just from being motionless. You almost have to learn to walk again.
You can't even blink your eyes without excruciating pain, everything is connected to your ass.

Imo, burning to death would be about the only thing that would hurt more.
It is the worst injury & you never become 100% after.
