People Share The Dumbest Reason They Have A Scar

Every scar has a story behind it. Luckily for us, people often get injured while doing stupid things, and stories of human error make for good comedy eventually. Honestly, there are so many stories from people who injure themselves in a stupid way. Whether it's from jamming your hands into a toaster oven or getting surprised by a bee, there's no end to stories behind people's scars.

    Text - OrpheusRemus 13.0k points 13 hours ago It's not very visible anymore. When I was in Kindergarten, I found out what a world record was, so I tried to be the first every Kindergartener to do a front flip into a bathtub. Now, I've never even done a front flip, I was basing everything from my form to my execution of it on Power Rangers. So, it went about as good as you thought it would go: I jumped, face first (no tuck, roll, anything) into the sharp corner of the bathtub and busted my chin o

    Text - PoncheeziedByTheGame 3.4k points 13 hours ago I have a scar from something dumb I did as an adult I was working at a holiday resort and we were doing games in the pool which involved a hula hoop. My job was to get people enjoying it and having a good time, so to build the atmosphere I decided to do a dolphin dive through the hoop that my colleague was holding. What I didn't realise was that the water was only waist deep. I hit my head and shoulder on the bottom of the pool very hard and n

    Text - StanzoBrandFedoras 11.8k points 13 hours ago I was so pumped to eat my to aster strudel that I just shoved my hand into the toaster oven while it was still on like a bear pawing at a bee hive. The top of my wrist hit the heat bar (not sure what the word for this is) dead on while it was still red hot. 18 years later, it's a pretty subtle scar, but god that hurt like a bitch at the time. The dumbest part of this incident: despite the fact that my wrist had just audibly and excruciatingly s

    Text - Chevtron 1.5k points 13 hours ago edited 7 hc When I was 12, I was wheeling a grill up a hill. I wanted to bring it to my fort in the woods. Well I lost my grip and one of the grills leg came down sliced my ankle. It was pretty deep too. I probably should have gotten stitches but was too embarrassed of the whole thing. So I washed it out, put Neosporin and wrapped my ankle with gauze. Repeated this for a month. Now I have a good size scar.

    Text - Mackel3000 93k points 13 hours ago edited I was five and was sitting on the toilet. I found a razor blade (not the kind for shaving) and started playing with it. I was cutting lines into the wall when the razor slipped away from the wall. My hand had some momentum and the blade cut into my thigh. At the time, I was scared about telling mom, so i went to bed and held my finger on it. Oh and when I was three or four, I was riding underneath a grocery basket while mom was pushing. I was watc

    Text - TheSparkPlugGuy 573 points 12 hours ago Me and a few of my friends played a very intellectual game with a can of deodorant. you take a spray can, put it close to your skin, and spray it. The longest to last wins. Now all 4 of us have the same circular scar on our hands from the burn.
