No, I'm not bored, just been doing my physiotherapy exercises on my two dodgy fingers (one fractured, one slashed open with a hacksaw) and realised that my hands have taken a beating over the years.

27 scars, large and small, between the two of them......

I have about 14 scars on my hands/fingers!

When I was about younger I dropped a glass or plate and somehow it cut all of my hands and fingers up a goodun.

Too many to count. The worst being my right thump. Cut it nearly off when I was 14. Right at the base of the nail. To this day, the nail grows all mangled. I use sand-paper to keep it "trimmed"

5 and only one of those was anything drastic. I was using an X-acto blade to free a part from a plastic model kit tree, the blade slipped and hit my left index finger. Never seen one of my phalanges before and never hope to again.  yuck   faint

Negative macho points here. Although I get cut on a semi-regular basis, I almost never form a scar. Even the spot where I peeled the back of my hand open on the jagged edge of a Corolla fender (saw my ring finger tendon, seven stitches required to close) is just a slight discoloration after a little over a year.

Only two that are at all noticeable, one on the palm of my right hand (sliced it from the side of my hand to the middle on a piece of sheet metal) and one on my right middle finger (was fixing a metal swiveling chair; the chair moved and my finger got caught between the chair and the bottom pole). That's it.

34 scars on my hands.

The worst one is from falling on a hot 40-watt soldering iron. The tip went in 2 cm in the webbing between my middle and ring finger on my left hand. At least it didn't bleed.  Big grin

Too many to count. I've only worked on the F18 for less than a year and my hands already have numerous scars. Just yesterday I got two new ones when taking off the Lox converter, they are deep mofo's too. Oh well, it all heals eventually.

No scars per se, but I'm missing the hair on one finger after accidentally burning it with a Bunsen burner.

I have 2 scars on the inside of my right wrist. I was playing soccer on asphalt, and one player from the other team fouled me.

2.
One caused by handling a stray cat in Turkey. This little fella had never been handled before, was terrified of people, and I had to catch him to get him to the vet (one of his eyes were missing and he was peeing blood). He was the brother of the kitten I brought home from turkey- unfortunately, she was run over by a car after 2 years. I still think of her and her precious siblings when I look at that scar. It's placed on the back of my left hand, and is always visible, although mostly during summertime when I get a tan and it turns bright white.

the second one, I got when my other cat had a seizure and accidentally scratched me. He was put down 1 hour later, and that scar is also serving as a way for me to remember him every day. It's on the back of my left middle finger.

Wow... I never pay attention to these. Eww.

Left hand: scar between my thumb and index finger--an otherwise nice dog bit me as it was recovering from anesthesia (I worked as a vet tech in college).
Left wrist: scar from surgery for a wrist fracture
Left middle finger: 1/2" scar from cutting my finger open while moving a piece of classroom furniture last December. Made it through the class before heading to the campus health clinic, where it was sutured (the students were all appropriately impressed).
Right knuckles: All scarred. I'll spare everyone the stupid details.

One very small one on the "pinky" finger of my right hand. Can't remember what I was doing at the time (as I was still very young) but I do recall I cut my finger on the end of the pedal on my tricycle. Its very small and I can only see it when the light is just right.

I put my right thumb between an iron kitchen door when I was 2 and it damaged the nail real bad.

The good thing that came out of that was that my dad saw this as the perfect moment to finally convince my mom we should have a dog so I was presented with a huge Airdale terrier when I got home.

She was a wonderful childhood companion for 12 years  Cool then we switched to Bull terriers the ugly b..... just joking, still got that breed!

Two of them came from holding a small automatic pistol improperly when I was young, most of the others came from a hard life working my ass off when I was younger.

I had never realized it before but when you just sit there and count them it can surprise you.
