What are the odds of that happening?


For that golfer to tee off at just the right time to bounce across a parking lot and intersect the path of a moving motorcycle to strike a Tennessean in the mouth that actually had teeth...


Mind bottling.

As for the golf ball, probably not so even.

I took a license plate to the face one morning at about 80mph. Broke the visor and visor lock. Had I been wearing a half shell I probably would have eaten .

hahahaha that last part

I had a golf ball come rolling across 4 lanes form the metro bus station downtown

I thought, no way will that actually intersect my tire

sure enough I ran right over it with the rear, just felt like a little bump

I took a glass soda bottle to the forhead area of my lid once too

Not related... but when I was 17yrs old, I was shooting BB's at a basketball goal board that was in the neighbor's yard, on the ground leaning against the wall about 50ft away. On about the 4th shot, I heard a "tink" on my BB rifle right after the "thunk" on the board. Curious... I turned the rifle around and saw a dent right on the edge of the muzzle! That BB had bounced straight back and hit right where it left the BB gun.

I thank the Greek of Flying Projectiles I still have both eyes today.

so... full face gets a license plate... half face would still be a license plate but you would also eat ? what does having a half face have to do with your dinner choice and whether or not you choose to eat?

That's one of my worst fears. I ride past a driving range just about every day. The ditch is littered with that have made it past the net. I figure it's only a matter of time.
