    I ate some of that delicious asphalt today riding my bike. Lets hear it for roadrash on the Face and Shoulders/Knees!

    My Friend however who ate it a while back was cruising the bike trail when a kid ran out in front of him, so he went over the bars and sustained a 3rd degree separation in his left shoulder. Meanwhile the mother just went hysterical.

    Im waitin for my black eye to come around these next few days..


    I blame my situation soley on the friend who flaked out on me - The idea was to go trail riding in the moutains and look at the fires going on round these parts. But he flaked off and I went out on the street alone. That bastard. Id rather roll off a hill any day then take a face plant..

    IT was one of those slow motion type deals where the only thought entering my head was "Get ready for the impact" (Had a helmet on) I rocked my jaw really good..

    Nothing like the time previous to that where I didnt see the lip on this curb and comfortably rolled onto these peoples soft grass. Grass is so much more forgiving.

    SO please share some stories of Eatin' It..:lick:

    i once was bombing down a hill on my skateboard when i got the speed wobbles and no "power slide" was gonna save my ass. My board flipped to the side, locked up and I was pitched off. I too experienced the whole slow down of time and I remember thinking "oh shit, i think i'm gonna hit my hip...." which i did and after finishing the four foot tragedy slide, I was the proud owner of a new bloody scrag up my side.

    I still have the scar and when i wanna impress girls, I pull my shirt up and say "yo, see that? That's where I got stabbed once."

    so i'm sitting on the omni trans bus...the only one on the bus other than the driver , and i'm bumping the hell out of my new cd player...the bus driver who is a real bitch starts yelling at me to turn it off..so i say fuck off and turn it up even more...

    she pulls the bus over to the side and tells me to get the hell off the bus.. so after using my new streak and pilot all over the front of the bus i decide to take off on the street wich is like this super downhill slope on my longboard..

    the good thing is i have my foot acting as a brake so i can keep a slow pace...but i turn my head and the busdriver is speeding up and switching lanes so she can hit me..

    so i started pushing with all the strength i could downhill , and by now i was going at least 20-27 mph and my board started wobbling really bad and i couldnt move over to the other side of the street for another ten seconds and the bus was at least 10 feet behind me.

    and when i got the chance i made a hard left that made me fly off my board and skid/bounce across the street downhill. and stop flat on my back right on the corner of the curb.

    my shirt and under shirt on my side and back where worn all the way through with holes ,my pants looked like i held a lighter to them my palms and elbows,shoulders,knees, had the skin shredded off and gravel inside the cuts, my ribs felt like hell, and i had a huge gash next to my left eye...to this day is a scar.
    and my board sailed down the street into the gutter but since its a longboard it was only sticking in halfway..

    but what sucked was i had only three blocks from that spot to get off home so i had to walk it the whole way limping and bleedin with a broken cdplayer.

    I also had a buddy who hopped a curb on his bmx only to land with the handlebar jammed into his stomach. This resulted in him having his splean taken out.

    My good friend attempted to go down the steepest hill in the city on a longboard. Well he didnt make it too far before he wiped out and ended up lying on the ground in a pool of blood.

    My brother was biking around this 7-11 with a guitar & case on his back when this lady who lived down the street backed over him. Apparently he doesnt remember anything else - from the concussion it gave him.

    Hey moogle - I busted my walkman today too...I cannot explain how dirt penetrated my shirt, getting dirt on my chest but not actually ripping it..weird

    Lets just say. Went off jump. Woke up 5 mins later in a pool of blood. Landed right on my chin so my lower lip was detached to the bottom of my chin. Basically took the pocket inbetween your lip and teeth/gums and ripped it open so it was big and went down to the bottom of my chin. Like a kangaroo pouch, my lip was all hanging down. They sewed it back on though and its normal now.

    Just the other day I was riding home from work, and riding with no hands. So I decided that since I had two free hands, that I was gonna pick my nose. That was when, all of the sudden, my front wheel went berserk, and I took a header and fucked up the palms of my hands royally.

    i was 50-50ing this little ledge. i had already landed it a couple of times,
    and i hit it again and something just went wrong. the next thing i knew
    i was on the ground. i tried to catch my glasses, so they didnt break
    when they hit the ground, but i missed catching em. i am laying flat on
    the ground, the wind knocked out of me. i pick up my glasses, and
    somehow they managed not to break. thats when the pain set in. the
    first thing that hit the ground was the right side of my chest, then my
    knee hit the ledge.

    bruised/cracked ribs really fucking suck

    "skatepark" in the basement of a former job, went to icepick some box we hadnt properly secured yet and it slid out letting me land perfectly on my left knee which promptly swelled up to the size of a softball. an hour later my boss hired a stripper to come over for a bunch of my friends. so i ended up sitting on the same box telling her to watch my blown knee while giving me a lapdance. hoo-rah.







    2 friends have destroyed their ankles.......literally destroyed them. one of which i saw......pretty disturbing sight when the shin to foot which is usually a straight line, now forms an "L". ick.

    I've skidded across pavement, dirt and lake water so many times its amazing I'm not in a wheel chair. Separated my shoulder twice. Going by the 1-6 grades...the first one was a 1 and the second was a 3. the next time it happens...its guaranteed to be a 4 or higher...which means another surgery.

    july 2003

    i'm leaving work, headed home to get ready to go to the airport to leave for Bali

    i'm hauling ass down ******* St. , which is paved with asphalt that has broken shards of glass embedded in the tar to improve traction/roadlife/etc.

    suddenly an ancient caprice pulls out of his parking spot on the left side of the street, where i was because of a bus which had just left the right curbside...as he pulls from the spot, i slow down considerably..
    but then he slams on his brakes, he had tried to make a sudden left hand turn without signalling, but a delivery truck was exiting that alley, so it was completely blocked. he stops suddenly, and due to the bus on my right, and my lack of brakes, i hurtled into his back bumper, over my handlebars and nearly under the wheels of the bus.

    it was july, so i was in a tanktop.
    i put a front tooth through my upper lip and i have a nice asterisk shaped chip in my tooth, further compounding the previous damage done to it. i had a lot of road rash on my face, my right arm, my chest and my legs..my boob had also popped out of my shirt and was on display for a moment before i realized.


    ....................

    last winter i was driving down the road and some asshole ran a red light and smashed into my car (going at over 70 mph) and shattered 6 of my ribs, a collarbone, lacerated my spleen and left lung and contused my kidney.


    have a nice day.
