Default Biggest Injury Sustained While Modelling

Hey guys,
Whats the biggest injury you've done to yourself while modelling?

I've cut a good gash through my right thumb, it bled for about 3 hours. and i had to go to work in twenty minutes...

Yeah, that was fun.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

I have managed to stab myself in my own tongue with a scalpel.

I suspect I shouldn't be allowed near power tools...

I've speared myself with Pin-vise bits and slashed my fingers and hands with X-acto blades. After 21 years of modelling you tend to accumulate quite a lot of scars on your hands.

My thumb looks like Lucius the Eternals face right now. One of the most painful was an exacto blade under the nail, and I have tested the theory about super glue being a liquid band aid on many occations for my thumb and fingers.

Trying to cut metal off a Predator annihilator I'd brought second hand in a rush just before going out. Needless to say I did go out, but to A&E to have a butterfly stitch and check over as I'd almost cut half an inch of flesh off my left thumb, still have uneven V scar now about two thirds of an inch long, which annoys me if I rub it 8yrs later.
