What bones have you broken?

    Dodging the ice here lately and it sure as hell doesn't bring back good memories. About three years ago, my dumb ass decided one morning that the icy Michigan sidewalks were an ideal place to go jogging. Yes, I know, beyond stupid. But in my defense, I was going slooooow. And it was more of a fast walk than a jog. Slip, fall, and before I know it, my ankle is doing this whole 2 o'clock thing. Not sure how much metal is still embedded in my lower right leg. Anyway, please be careful on that ice. Also chipped a bone in my elbow diving for a pass (incomplete) in a flag football game way back freshman year of college. So what have you guys broken?

    I've only broken my elbow, in a motrocycle accident of which I have no memory. But I have cracked my head open four times (commence with the jokes :)).

    The humerus bone in my elbow, in Feb. 1973, skiiing when I was 14 years old.

    And I did not find it the least bit humorous. :eek: :eek:

    I have broken my left wrist three times, both big toes, some fingers, and one, maybe two ribs ?

    Both collarbones.

    Once playing football (sans pads)

    Once playing rugby.

    Never a pleasure.

    None that I'm positive about. But I think I probably broke my fourth toe a year or so ago.

    Fifth tarsal bone in my right foot. Broke it stepping off a curb wrong after crawling through the cave at Raccoon Mountain in Chattanooga (a very cool tour, btw, if you're into spelunking). At first I thought it was just a bruise or a strain, but it kept hurting, and finally went to get it x-rayed two weeks later and there it was.

    Hairline fracture in a rib. That's it for me.
