Indeed. But let's have a discussion about "have a life outside something". Eh?

Hahaha, sorry. You've just made me laugh at your misfortune. Not so much at your misfortune, but at a story my dad came home with years ago. He came in moaning that he'd had to fill in a massive accident form, because he'd "tripped over a wall".

Imagining the scene has kept me laughing helplessly for years

The best part is, they apparently knocked the wall down as a result of the report.

Tripped over a wall!? I mean....how the hell do you do that?


In my head tripping implied having you foot catch something causing you to fall....maybe just above the ankle at the highest..

But a wall.....can you really call it a wall if its shorter than about 3 foot? Like...would there even be any point in it if it were any shorter?

About as easy as hitting your forehead on the wall you are jumping off and away from.


I should know, because that's what I managed (I still have a scar where the wound was sewn).

Yes, but I was jumping away from the wall, with my back facing the wall.

I was wearing a long coat, you see, and when I jumped off the wall it caught on the hunter's fence that was atop the wall. Then it was just a question of me dangling by my jacket, doing a 180° turn so my face was looking at the wall, and then I hit my forehead. That was in primary school, and my teacher was terrified! I have three scars from accidents in my face, and two small round ones from chicken pox.

The moral of the story: don't jump off walls while wearing long coats.

Like, duh...

*mutters something about learning from mistakes*

Anyway, I managed to trip down a hill once while on a choir outing during Holy Week (the week leading up to Easter Day), slamming into some logs, giving myself a nasty black eye, a slightly wierded left eye (there's a slight lump still in the skin around it) and only actually missing the eyeball itself by a couple of centimetres. The wall may sound more painful, but tripping down a hill is only the result of extreme stupidity.

And then I had to go back and sing Evensong. It did allow me to spend Good Friday picking the scabs on my cheek, though ...

Of course it was. That's why they put a fence on top of a wall in the first place, silly!

That's why it's so funny!

Apparently it was a very short wall, the type you use at the edge of a car park to stop cars wandering off it.

So how exactly were you on the wall if there was a fence on it?

It was a Jägerzaun ("Hunter's Fence"), which is constructed in a way making possible to place my feet on the wall without problems. Pity that it's construction was also the reason why I was able to get caught on it in the first place.

See for yourself:


Jägerzaun

....wait, just over half a meter?

How did that give you enough height to swing back towards it?
