Accidents and injuries can happen in the strangest places and the most peculiar ways. And most of us can agree that they occur most often when we least expect them. Plenty of us have hurt ourselves pretty badly doing mundane, routine, everyday tasks. While we might brag about the huge scar on our faces having come from rabid velociraptors that we fought off with only our bare fists, only our closest friends know that we really slipped on a banana peel and crashed into our fridge handle.

When the Super 70s Sports account asked Twitter users what the dumbest freak injury in their lives was, people rushed to share their experiences. As it turns out, people can be really fragile.

Scroll down to read through our list of hilarious and dumb injuries, and be sure to upvote the stories you enjoyed. If the stories made you smile or laugh, why not share them with a few buddies to improve their mood while they wait for the weekend? And if you have any experience with dumb injuries yourselves, share what happened with everybody in the comments! After all, grief (or in this case pain and shame) shared is halved. And joy shared is doubled. Be sure to scroll down for Bored Panda’s in-depth interview with Ricky Cobb, the founder of Super 70s Sports.

Ricky Cobb of Super 70s Sports told Bored Panda that the list of injuries in the Twitter thread “is so random and hilarious [that] it is almost impossible to single out” just one best answer.

“But I have a special place in my heart for the guy who said he threw out his back reaching for a french fry on his dashboard. There is something beautifully relatable about that story — or at least there is for me!”

“I think the only way to avoid freak injuries is to stop living life, so we’ve gotta get out of bed every morning knowing there's a chance, ever how small, some unpredictable misfortune may befall,” Ricky mused. “Thankfully it doesn’t happen that often. And it’s nice that, on the rare occasions we fall victim to the improbable, we can at least share a laugh about it. To think that amazing thread was inspired by my own broken finger from doing what would seem the most innocuous of tasks — walking out of a bathroom.”

Ricky also talked about the inspiration for his popular Twitter thread, as well as what motivated him to create Super 70s Sports.

“I started the Twitter feed about five years ago just as a hobby. Figured I’d try to entertain my friends and make some new ones. It has been an incredible experience. I’ve always loved comedy, sports, and nostalgia. I thought some other folks might too. But I never would’ve thought over 300,000 followers was realistic.”

“I wanted to blend my love of sports, pop culture, comedy, and nostalgia into a place where people can share some laughs, interact, and enjoy a sense of community,” he explained to Bored Panda. “One of the best things about this tweet is it showcases the cleverness and wit of my audience which I believe is a big part of the appeal of my feed. Often they are funnier than me and this is a perfect example.”

Bored Panda also talked to Jon Gerardi about an injury that befell one of his friends in high school: "We were taping book covers on (the plain ones we all had to do back in school, I'm sure you and others remember). It appeared that he was trying to pull tape from a dispenser and his hand slipped and he hit his hand off the bottom of his desk and ended up breaking his thumb by doing so."

"I think we don't think we can be injured at home or during daily routines because we do them so frequently, it's almost like second nature," Jon said. "One thing to prevent major injuries I'd say is to just be more aware of what we're doing and not rush through things."

Nobody wants to think that they’re not safe in their homes. But the truth is, plenty of accidents happen at home (just like lots of car accidents can occur near where you live because you may relax too much when thinking you’re completely safe).

For example, in 2007, 2.7 million people in England were injured in a home accident. While in the United States, almost half of the accidents that lead to the deaths of young adults and children happen at home.

Fractures only happen when you fall while sober, just a theory, but drunken falling is safer.

Things that can seriously harm us are usually small: failing to put up a carbon monoxide detector, having a leaky hot water heater, an untucked carpet on the stairs, a slippery bathtub, a greasy kitchen or a malfunctioning garbage disposal unit. These are all things that can be the difference between life and death.

Statistically speaking, the kitchen and the bathroom are the two rooms in your home that you’re most likely to get injured. Now, it doesn’t mean that you should curl up into a ball and hide under your bed for the rest of your life. But it does mean that you should be aware of sharp knives and wet floors. And if you’re working outside your home, be wary when you’re mowing the lawn or cleaning the gutter: you’re most likely to hurt yourself while doing those two things. If you want to keep your kids safe, give them some other chores to do than mowing the lawn.
