I was throwing my Terrarian the other day and didnt realize i had a snag. Gave it a good hard throw and the snag launched it right between my eyes. Made me see stars and left a nice welt.

Not really an accident per se, but I was having a bad day so I decided to throw for awhile to see if I could de-stress.  Stupidly, rather than doing easy, relaxing tricks, I started right in on a trick I was working on and still struggling with.  Naturally, I couldn't hit the trick to save my life and got even more frustrated.  I took the yoyo off my finger and meant to throw it harmlessly into the couch cushion.  Somehow, I missed an entire couch at point-blank range, and hit the end table next to the couch.  Miraculously the table was undamaged, but the yoyo was completely trashed.  It was a Navigator.  One of the rings popped off and both the ring and the yoyo half bent so I couldn't really put it back together in any meaningful way.  So that yoyo's retired now but I keep it visible near where I usually throw as a reminder.

One time I was fatally injured when a yoyo falling back to Earth from the International Space Station; hit me directly in the forehead!

I hit my funny bone 2 times and it caused half my arm to go numb.  I almost whacked myself in the face trying to get a finger spin to return to my hand.

My Basecamp Expedition gave me a nice scar on my forehead. It had quite the snag that I didn't notice until I threw a breakaway and launched back into my face. Fortunately I avoided needing stitches.

Yoyo is a taste. Titanium is the flavor.

I hit the back of my throw hand one time so hard it knocked the breath out of me. I limped back to the couch with a severe pain in my hand that felt hot, throbbing, and prickley and sat there and tried to breathe again.
It was mostly useless for the next week, I couldnt open a jar of jelly to save my life. I couldnt make a fist, I couldnt wiggle my fingers without inducing really sharp pain. I don't know what happened, Ive taken hundreds and hundreds of hits to the back of the hand, but there is this *tiny* area, maybe 10mm x 10mm square that, ever since, if something hits it, im done!
It only took a couple weeks to go away back to mostly normal, thankfully.

I swear its like it revealed a hidden weakness I have and now know about a vulnerability. It was really eye opening.

Throwing while wearing a smart watch, thirty seconds into it and the watch screen is toast. Not one of my brightest moments.
