"Kid in the church nursery hit me in the eye with a plastic carrot. It was 40 years ago. I’ve still got a scar."
"Someone said “that knife is for cutting tape, so it won’t cut people” and I checked"
"When I was 10 I wanted to cut a coconut with a big machete and on the first try I hit my thumb, luckily I didn’t hit it too hard, but I have a permanent scarf on my thumb now"
"My foot was itchy so I used a hunting knife to scratch it"
"I couldn’t tie my laces as a kid and liked to walk with my hands in my pockets.
This led to me tripping over my laces, no hands to protect and landing face first onto a stone step, the corner of which went right between my eyes, leaving a small scar where my monobrow grows."
"I was in a cornfield and grabbed a cob of corn to throw at a friend. The leaf from the corn stalk went between my middle and index fingers as I released the throw and sliced the webbing open deep enough that I could see my tendons. That was 25 years ago and I still have the scar."
"Dripping burning plastic on my hand to see if it would scar…"
"Was playing a Ms. Pacman machine in a laundromat. Inky snuck up on me. I flinched, kneed the padlock on the coin insert, blood everywhere. Cool scar, but damn you Inky."
"I was holding a super soaker reservoir bottle underwater at a lake to fill it up. It slipped out of my hand and shot up out of the water, hit me in my lip and split it open all the way through to the other side. Needed stitches inside my mouth and right below my bottom lip. Got a small scar from it."
"Skating down the roof didn’t come as planned"
"When I was about 12, we had a new kitten at home and it scratched my hand. Not deep at all, it was just a kitten scratch. Being 12, I thought it would be really cool to have a scar and kept picking at it for days, on purpose.
I’m now 38 and I have a cool scar on my hand. No regrets."
"So i tried to sharpen my right index finger with those small pencil sharpeners in kindergarten-"
"Put my hand in a toaster to see what happened. What happens is that you burn your fingertips off. It hurt like a [email protected]#ker. I found out so you don’t have to. It has healed nicely so is barely visible any longer, after 20 years."
"I burned myself with mashed potatoes."
"I was eating pizza rolls in the buff and when I bit into one of them the filling fell out the other end and onto my chest. By the time I was able to get the stuff all the way off, my skin had bubbled. Scar is roughly the size of a nickel."
"Shaving my pubes. Yeah you heard me…"
"I was playing with a hot spatula in the school laboratory and burned myself, it hurt so bad that my friend didn’t know how to make me feel better so she took the same spatula and burned herself. Six years later, and we have twin scars."
