    I find it harder to believe that two were attacked by millipedes... :eek:

    Odds are it was a sensory deprivation chamber or the like.

    Yeah, that freaked me out when I saw it last night.

    1, because it's a child, and 2, because it's an 'extended period of time'... the only way to do that without leaving the atmosphere is to do the steep dive trick they use to film movies - and that only lasts a few minutes!

    :eek:

    evidently with the right type of illegal drugs in your system, riding the ferris wheel with michael in neverland is a "weightless enviornment" :eek:

    I'm going to venture a guess that these are more than just your household millipedes... more likely those huge brazilian monsters people keep as pets... I've heard they can be quite toxic and sometimes agressive if you smell funny to them.

    I may have read this wrong but...

    These don't really seem all that strange. A little odd maybe, but the top ten? Where are all the people who were victims in the "penis" thread accidents? What about the idiot that tried to shave with a chainsaw? Or strap a jet engine to their roller blades?

    Extended stay in zero g is very strange, though.

    a weightless environment could be water... astronauts practice in a large pool, so maybe this person spent more time in water than usual and had some sort of skin problem - body prune?

    I enjoyed the ones who were hospitalized due to exposure to vibrations. Hmmm.

    Nerve damage from using a jack hammer, or the like. Fairly common.

    I can also cause damage to internal organs such as the kidney. Another example of how interesting statistics are.

    So long as you don't do it to me.

    I found some of them odd, #10 was the only one that really stood out as "What the hell?"

    No conspiracy theories for #10? My theory: the Russians are cloning and cross breeding aliens and cosmonauts in a secret space station. ;) :p

    Wow.

    Personally I've been in hospital once, when I was somewhere between 10 and 15. I was running around in the dark (stupid) and tripped, and knocked my head on a metal table. It missed my right eye by about half a cm, and I can still see the remains of the scar if I squint (I'm 22 now).

    I only spent about an hour in hospital from that though, then a quick visit to the doctor a week later to get the stitches removed. It's scary though, because I almost lost my eye :eek:

    I've also fallen down a waterfall, but that's a different story.

    corner of the table? sounds like it would hurt anyways....
    reminds me of the time i was taken to the ER because i got brake cleaner in my eye when i was working for a gas station/repair shop

    yeah that hurt like hell, luckily my contact got most of spash, but was immediately shivled, so i was able to pop it out get to some water and flush my eye for 15 mins straight, burned like none other and scared the hell out of me
