There's nothing that makes you more aware of the fact that we are just sacks of meat, water, and calcium than looking at a broken bone. While we try to distract ourselves from the morbidity of it all with cute, brightly colored casts that are covered in our friends' signatures, the truth is that a broken bone is being held together by plaster, and that's gross.
That being said, here are some of the most insane injuries that the Internet has to offer.
1. And they say that soccer isn't a contact sport.
2. I'm not even sure if this is a hand or a foot.
3. I'm not an expert in human anatomy, but I don't think there should be a knee there.
4. After a rugby accident, this dude gained three extra rows of teeth.
5. For the love all things holy, someone pull over and take this dude to the hospital!
6. How did this weak pitch cause so much destruction?
7. How are you smiling, sir? Your nose looks like Yosemite National Park in the worst way.
8. This guy's leg HAS to be made of rubber. There's no way.
9. Just take the whole hand while you're at it.
10. I'm pretty sure that arms are not supposed to look like boomerangs.
11. Use your feet, dude!
12. How did this even happen?
13. This just looks cursed.
14. What are you pointing at?
15. Give it to me straight, Doc. Is it broken?
16. This guy can do the wave without moving his arm!
I haven't broken a bone yet, and I'd like to keep it that way. After seeing all of these broken bones, it makes me want to wear a protective cast on my limbs at all times.
