Broken ankle (and boot).
Seriously cutted finger (and gloves) while falling on my butt on a monoski in the 80's (don't ask).
Major contusion on my lower back ans self-esteem after having consecutively felt on a stair, on an iced slope and being hurted by the chair lift from hell, all on the same exact spot, the same day. Couldn't sit for a week.
Several serious hangover after excessive consumption of tartiflette and savoie white wine.

Maybe its cuz I am weird, and maybe because i was in my early/mid 20 s when it happened, but the first question I asked when I came out of my cranial surgery was: "am I gonna set off metal detectors?"
doc said titanium was not ferrous enough.

aside from sprains, contusions, concussions and occasional sutures....

Dec. 1996 cranial compression fracture held in place w/ 2 ti plates (see above)

Feb 1997 broken scapula, spinal process, facial lacerations that required some plastic surgery, head to toe green and purpleness requiring 3 days of in- patient "pain control"

currently fractured humeral tuberosity(sp?)
