    A couple months back when we had all those nasty storms, our patio table kissed the pavement, and threw glass everywhere. I'm still cleaning it up, because alot of the glass went into the grass a couple feet away.

    So today I was checking the umbrella to see if it could be salvaged, since the table itself can't. It seems like the spines just needed to be placed back in to the holes around the umbrella. So naturally I figure, "hey, it's not a total loss", and start putting the spines back into their holes, no problem. Then I get to the last one, just about done. I get it into the hole (or so I thought), and the blasted thing jets right toward me, smacking me in the eye. Fortunately due to the natural "flinch" reflex, it struck me on the inner side of the upper eyelid, scratching halfway across the eyelid. I'm lucky though, the cut wasn't very deep, and it stopped bleeding about 2-3 minutes afterward. My eye is still sore, but at least I can still watch 3-D movies.

    I've been shot in the eye by an 0.6mm BB bullet by a n00b on airsoft skirmish game on fuckin' close range. So I can imagine the pain that you experienced, man.

    but they don't have eye-patches.

    I almost lost an eye once. I had it on a table and it rolled off under a couch. I couldn't find it because a cat got it and ran away. Luckily I caught the cat. Dodged thet bullet.


    Also, that must've hurt.

    I feel your pain; I lost a chunk of tooth to some dipshit who doesn't know the meaning of stopping firing when your target shouts "HIT". C**t.

    Ah, you can't beat the trigger happy muppets. Stormed out of one game that was supposed to be semi-auto only when some dick hosed a group of us with a pair of Micro Uzis on full-auto. Happy days.

    *Update*

    Well, it turns out it went almost all the way through the eyelid. It's teeny, tiny, but it's deeeeeeep. It hurt like crap when I first woke up thismorning, considering it's pretty much instinct to rub ones eyes upon awakening.
