What IS the stupidest way you've injured yourself?

Bob's been known to trip over nothing and fall up stairs for no reason.

Bob's heard stories about folks who burned themselves...making cereal. Or who walked right through a really clean sliding glass door. Or nearly torched their apartment in an attempt to see if Splenda was flammable (answer: no. Carpet, however, very much so.)  For instance:

 "One day, I decided to look at an aerosol hairspray up close and sprayed a substantial amount of hairspray in my eye. I suffered for weeks. Months later, I was telling some friends all about it and grabbed a bottle of hairspray to show them exactly how I did it...and I did it again."

And then there's this :

"It was a Monday. Alarm clock goes off on dresser on other side of room. I climb down from the top bunk and go over to silence it. On the way, I stub my toe on the small space heater in the middle of the room. Hit snooze. Go back. Stub same toe again. Cursing, I kick the heater with my other foot. Break the heater. And my toe. Climb back up the ladder to top bunk. While I have one leg in bed and one on the top rung so that I'm straddling the bed frame, I kid you not, the rung snaps in half. I fell straight down on the bar smashing my nethers. Stunned and in pain, I slowly pivoted sideways and fell off the top bunk. At the last second I reached up and grabbed the frame to slow my fall. This transferred my momentum and I swung sideways like a pendulum and slammed into the wall, dropping the rest of the way to the floor. I lay in a heap stunned and whimpering for a few minutes, and my alarm clock went off again."

And, keeping it simple:

"Sneezed while stretching for cardio-exercise. Pulled a leg muscle."

 

If you've sustained an injury in a very dumb way, take heart. The folks in this story have done way worse.
