I have a scar on my forearm from when I was about 17. A ‘mate’ at work thought it would be funny to load up my soldering iron. I’d hung it up on a peg rather than putting it in its holder (he’d previously tied the mains lead up and I burn my hand as I tried to use it) and as I moved it, the solder fell off the hot tip onto my arm.
I was an apprentice TV mechanic at the time.
He also thought it would be funny to charge up a colour tube while I was retrieving a box spanner from another part of the workshop (they charge up to about 17,000 volts). He thought it was funny as hell when I touched the last anode and was thrown back hard enough to flip me over the bench behind me.
I was lighting a fire in a hut off Loch Long in Scotland years ago and all the wood was wet so I used a fire lighter, the solid parafin type, unfortunately I lit the front before the rear so as I pulled my hand out, burning parafin dripped over my hand. Because it was still part wax I couldn’t flick it off so it carried on burning through my skin. Only lasted a few seconds but still have the scars.
haha thats nothing i once jumped into a children size paddleing pool i was 17 jks i was about 15 and broke ma little finger it was bent back so far it was touching the top of my hand but this is the bad bit the paddleing pool was inflatable :S how the f**k did i manage that 1
O.K…well some 40ish years ago, scratching around with some mates, we came across a couple of gallon cans with some sort of fluid in them, well I lit a match to look inside.:w00t:…nothing but dirty water! I done the same with the second…WHOOSH!!!Feck ME! it was like standing behind the rocket car at Santa Pod !the can went one way and me the other:D lucky that I dont have any scars (only the nightmares) I lost all the front half of my hair my eye lashes and browes, it makes me shudder thinking about it !:w00t::D:D

Bounced my back off a 6" nail at ice skating (scar still evident after 33 years).
Scar on side of head from a gang fight (I wasn’t in a bloody gang!!) where someone got a bit keen with a cut-throat razor (he was aiming for my face).
Various scars on hips, knees and elbows from falling off bikes.
Small scar on ear from being smacked with a rifle butt.
And the best bit: Broken nose (14 times!!!), but it still looks straight (long story attached to that one, which I’ll save for when you’re REALLY bored )
