I have done many things in 57 years that should have resulted in more broken bones but never did. So far I have just a broken nose from Golden Gloves Boxing.

How about you?

Fractured my skull once walking into a concrete lampost while staring at a girl walking the wiggly walk on the other side of the road.

Didn't think she was aware of me but her gleefully hysterical laughter suggested that was incorrect. Thnk she might actually have wet herself.

Shattered Left arm during a bicycle race crash. Took some time to find a doc that would attempt the repair, as it was in 20 pieces.

I am forever thankful I found a qualified and skilled surgeon, as the "internal fixation" has been trouble free and my arm/wrist/hand works properly.

Actually I'm going through this right now. Got in a fight with a tree while doing some clearing.
Have a compound fracture of my left Tibia and a double compound fracture of my left leg Fibula.
They installed a rod through the middle of the Tibia bone and some screws to hold it in place.

Compression fractures of vertebrae L1 and L2. Off road motorcycle accident. This happened 38 years ago, and I don't seem to have any disability from it, though I've never been as strong as I was beforehand. Probably because of all of the time recuperating, during which heavy lifting was verboten.

I have broken little toes a couple of times. Once I caught a chair leg between my toes, and heard a loud snap. Looked down and my toe was sticking out from my foot at about a 45-degree angle. Another time I was ironing clothes (seriously) and dropped the iron on my toe. I went to church and could feel my toe swelling during the entire service.
Experts are often wrong, but rarely in doubt.

I used to race 3 wheelers. Had 3 team Honda guys gang up on me to take me out. Broke my left arm when I crashed. Then rebroke it 2 weeks after I got the cast off but that was my fault.

Broke my left collar bone while riding my ATV out in the desert. Over inflated tires+riding too fast means it flips on top of you. It wasn't too bad of a break though, I was 16 at the time.
