There I was, about to end my swiming session for the day when I decided I'd swim one more lap before I got out.

That was my first mistake. Here comes the others.

I swim with my eyes closed. It comes from the built up cockyness of swimming night and day for years. My third mistake was seeing how fast I could do it and finally my fourth was veering off my planned route and swimming full bore into the concrete side wall of the pool.

My head softened the blow. :D I had to have my right pariatal bone put back into place and I did so the swelling went down but here I am fourteen hours later and I still have a mondo headache. :D


Oh well, I just wanted to say that. .. I could have sworn there was a point in this somewhere...

Ah yes! Never be a dumb*** whilst swimming.

Anyone else done this before?

No Rhett, i'm pretty sure you are the sole creature on this planet to ever have experienced such shame.

For shame Rhett...for shame:p Just kidding, but I'm sure others have done worst like going head first in a three foot deep pool I'm almost sure of that.

Ouch! Hope you feel better soon.

I haven't hurt myself swimming, but I've suffered great embarasment. I got out of the diving pit once and everyone was staring at me, eyes wide open. I got really flustered and asked my friend why everyone was looking at me. He said "your tit is hanging out". :|

I've bashed my head on the edge of the pool multiple times. Didn't do it too badly to hurt myself...just cost myself. I've broken my glasses twice that way...usually when coming up out of the water and taking the wall full in the face.:nutz1:

I do, because I'd rather not come up to some guy or girl who looks remotely like a person who I am swimming (same hair color and swim suite color, everything else is a blurr) with and start babbling. Besides...I've only lost my glasses a few times while swimming and they were easily recovered. May look dorky, but it's better than not seeing a thing.

I was knocked unconscious when my blue floatie hit the side of the pool. And then I died. And my parents danced about on my grave singing Alleluia.

Geez, rhett, I swim blind, and I still have never hit a wall yet! I swim blind because of chlorine amounts in the pools kill my eyes, so I just simply never open them. But still, what were you doing? I hope you have a concussion the rest of your life!


J/K!!!

I jetski and the last time I really wiped us out. We were at a lake around these parts and I had my brand new Arnettes on. Well I thought they were safe because I attached a floaty strap to em. Ya...right. So I'm hopping waves going faster and faster. My favorite thing is to try and get it as high as it will go and kinda turn the ski so that a spray of water will kick up. Well I was hopping waves....and you have to do it in Rhythum. I got off of the Rythum and turned to sharply and hit the gas at the same time. We went flyign....the jetski was like a mile away and our glasses were no where to be found. Expensive crash..but it never hurt.

It doesn't really look like an Ewok.

It's just as cuddly and furry. And just as cute:p

I'm not sure what I got, TD75. All I know is that it still hurts. :D


I can't believe people are still using Chlorine in pools. :eek: Baquacil is where it's at! It's safe to swim in after ten minutes and you can'teven tell it's there! It works extremely fast too.

yeah, chlorine bleaches the crap out of EVERYTHING and hurts your eyes...

i USED to be a REALLY good swimmer. i was able to doggy paddle forever! :p Seriously though, i took lessons forever. i was able to hold my breath under water for a very long period of time too.

Wait, there's something other than chlorine to put in the pool? How is that "Baquacil" better than chlorine?

1. It doesn't hurt your eyes or bleach anything.

2. It has very very little smell.

3. It works much faster.

4. You don't have to have a floaty thing in the pool.

5. After ten minutes of pouring it in it's totally fine to swim. No noticable side effects to the water.

takes the water temperature... if there are others...

you also need to repeatedly check chlorine levels.
