Thanks for all the stories. It makes it all easier to cope with this. I'm not the only one and I have something to do while laying on the couch. My house is invades by my parents, mother-in-law and sister, because everybody thinks now that I'm disabled. Finding this site, while laying on that couch, makes it al bearable. If I get walking plaster next week, then i am really back on my feet again.

thanks everyone for the replies.

The recovery will be a fact, but de sue part won't. Though I believe in America I will win. "Your honor, sorry but the music made me dance, it's not my fault!?" Would it work?

You know in Holland that is impossible and that's the place to sue (place of accident). So no, no winning. Lol. Though concert tickets would be very, very nice.

By the way where a you living in Holland?

Thanks TCV for the full back and rib bruises, and the war stories from 3rd row in!
Haha, I know exactly what you mean! I had the same problem at the TCV concert in Amsterdam.
The reason why I sat on the balcony during the QOTSA gig a couple of months later

not really an injured, more like traumatized...

walked into an obduction of a drowned sailor. i thought i walked into an empty room, did not notice that things were going on because i was listening to "best of you" on my mp3 player, when i suddenly saw this dude with his entire torso ripped up.
(i worked in a hospital at the time)

So "the best of him" was outside his body. Jak. That is repulsive. In the movies I don't like to see it, but for real! No thanks.

I tripped on a mount of tangled rope while listening to Rope on my way to work. I swear this is true, I couldn't stop laughing the whole remaining bit of walking to my destination.

That's also a good one. I believe you, but be honest, doesn't it makes the story funnier or more ironical? Haha. I read you walked further to your destination, but no injuries? Then you did it better than I did. Lol.

Working to day for the first time. Thank god I have a sitting job.

Had just had my hair done - feeling pretty sassy leaving the salon - car coming down the street with music rockin' and guys looking - playing it off all aloof and cool, while walking to the beat...walked into a tree.

I sure did indeed, I'm sorry you went through all that, at least it didn't turn out more serious. I just had a chuckle =P

the most funny part of this is that the song was right at the "gimme some Rope..." part. some workers from a transportation company were delivering huge boxes somewhere and left that tangled bunch of rope at the sidewalk that was being used to tie something big. I wasn't looking, tripped, almost fell down to my face and when connected the dots I just couldn't avoid laughing, people were looking at me on the streets as if I was some sort of crazy person.

sounds like a cheesy cartoon scene.

Hoi Madness,

I think they have to make some kind of contest for this. Who has the most funniest or painful accident on a Foo song. Haha. Has to be a visible injury or just a very funny story or something like that.

The price: some concert tickets or a meet and greet. In the funniest part you will win and maybe I will win in the painful part. I read some other painful stories too.
