First of all, Wesley, if I ever take Introductory Psychology, I'd definitely want you as my teacher. Your class sounds like so much fun.

And, oh my, what a great Friday Fact. Although I'm not sure I needed any more things to be paranoid about! I mean, here I am, just recently having gotten out of bed, sitting in my chair, with a large shelf of books right over my head, about to go down the stairs to stoke up our woodstove (any statistics you wish to add about woodstove injuries?)

You know, I think I'll never be able to sit down again without considering the possibility of a "seating mishap." :-)

Really, this is a very lively and well-written Friday Fact!

I bet you are the most sought-after psych teacher at that school. Your class sounds great!

And, I fell down some stairs once and injured my tailbone (I was pregnant with Drew at the time)

I guess I took that doomed step, and now I'm a statistic :-)

I'm part of the stairs statistic too. But that one didn't surprise me. Now the
books and beds...that's another matter! It's always interesting to realize how warped our perceptions and thoughts can be. Thanks for this FF.

We sound like a bunch of klutzes or Three Stooges players! I'm thinking about big paper cuts. I think it would be hard to injure myself with my scrapbooks.

Your class sounds fascinating to me. I love learning more about the brain.

Oh what a great post!

I came across another great book, and darn it, I can't remember the title...but it was something to the effect of surviving weird disasters like a kidnapping, tiger attack, bear attack, etc. Ooh, we had so much fun with that. I gave a copy of it to my buddy to give to her daughter going off to college as it actually had some really great info for single women like how to kick out the back of a car light if you are stuck in a trunk and more fun tidbits.

That was really too funny. So funny I hurt myself laughing.

Makes me feel better about my frequent trips on the stairs, but now I am eyeing the bookcase next to me suspiciously.
