mine happened couple weeks ago. had the car up on ramps, was underneath on the creeper working on ladder bars. while taking one out, it got away from me and fell about 10 inches and smacked me on the nose. within 15 seconds had alot of blood out both nostrials. took about half the day to quit bleeding. did not break it.
when i put the ladder bar back in 3 days later, i used alot of caution and awarness like i should have been doing in the first place.

As I unwrapped tape, Mom walked in and scream.....went to hospital, got stitches..blah..blah...

Fighting a clutch pedal return spring and I had it stretched real good and it slipped out of the vice grips. It hooked the palm of my hand and pulled my arm under the car. It went an inch into my hand. I had to fight the pain and remove it with the same vice grips. I still have the scar.

I had a 72 chevy truck with the fuel tank behind seat. The truck would stall due to lack of fuel so I filled the tank and still had problem. So tah dah ill just blow in the tank with my mouth. Well the inlet is below top of tank and so I proceeded to blow with all I had then released to suck in another full breath and when I did fuel proceeded to fill my lungs. After what felt like eternity and a attempted 911 call I started to breath again but when I laid down my back would burn when I stood up my belly would burn.
Wow that was close. It took a month to stop breathing slight gas fumes.

Problem was crack in fuel line that would not leak fuel but suck air.

That's pretty funny! I hate to laugh, because I've had metal removed from 1 eye, I couldn't imagine 2! I guess my worst injury would be a couple of stitches below my right eye from doing a brake job, drum brakes! You guess what happened.....

I was 16 and stupid, had one of those glass fuel filters on my 77' Laguna. Was adjusting the timing, and must have knocked it into the alternator bracket, cause it came apart with the engine idling, sprayed me directly in both eyes, up my nose, down my throat. I managed to shut the car off quick enough before it caught, and staggered into the front yard and shoved the garden hose in my face. The only other major injury was when I was stripping my current project, my junk ass Mac ratchet pretty much self-detonated cause a rusty control arm bolt to remove a 1/8" deep by 3/8" wide by 3" or so long check of flesh out of my arm. Wrapped it up and finished what I was doing.

Momma always said if you're gonna be stupid you better be tough.
