You think that's bad? My sister broke her forearm in half, both bones, by tripping over her own leg (while getting ready to do a floor exercise at a gymnastics competition, that's the ironic part).

Seriously though, you should never fall straight on your arms. They're just there as a quick cushion before you do a roll over your shoulders. Learned that viable lesson spending my teenage years racing bikes down hills in the forest.

Has saved me multiple times, once in a head-on collision with a motorcycle. (I was on a mountain bike)

I have never had a broken bone in my life.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
