I was going really fast on my bike as a kid. Decided that if I lifted my foot up and slammed it back down, I would go faster!
Missed the pedal entirely, went right off the side of the bike at super fast speed.
I now have road rash scars on my shoulder, hip, and likely under my hair on my head (Gonna shave it all off one day, I promise, just to see).
Even worse, one of my mom’s friends saw me come off and insisted on driving me home and my hip bled all over her brand new car’s blue fabric seat, turning it purple. I was mortified.
Tell me your stupidity! Crazy sunburn? Cooking accident? Driving whoops? I need a laugh so go on!
I am part of a Facebook group that is focussed on science, humanism and atheism.
Someone put up a post about International Women and Girls in STEM Day. She gave her science field, and asked for the rest of us to share our expertise. Some of the replies (several duplicates):
IT for a space-race competitor
Many of these woman have multiple degrees. 63 women replied.
And one man.
“Very impressive, ladies.”
