I'm so tough that yesterday, when I stubbed my toe (while watering my spice garden), I only cried for 20 minutes.

..once I had a metal rod go through my foot and pin it to the ground. I pulled it back through (dirt and all) and walked to medical.

I once had molten metal drop on my hand and burn in about a two thirds of the way, I dug it out with a screwdriver and... walked to medical...

Sprained my ankle three separate times, walked on it to medical..

Once ate ONE Lay's potato chip... walked to med-Uhhh no, I then had a soda..

My military days were interesting...

Same here—except I’m so tough I didn’t bother go see a doctor about it, just let it heal on its own.

I’m also so tough that when I went flying over the handle bar on my bike, landing face-first in a box of empty (glass) bottles, and cracking a nice big gash open in my left eyebrow with blood spurting everywhere, the only thing I could think about was how unbelievably embarrassing it would be if someone were to have seen that. (Someone had, naturally.)

I had 5 staples removed from my head during lunch break by the doctor we were working for. I then went back to work.

No.

You know when they fake an orgasm? Well, they fake child birth pains too. All that screaming and stuff... ...fake. So you feel guilty. Forever. So you endlessly try to make up for it by buying them chocolates and flowers and stuff.

Which part of the head? And what type of staples, exactly?

(These are vital details, you see, in assessing your toughness.)

Top right, I split it open working the week prior by coming up underneath an exposed beam in the basement. 5 stainless steel staples held my head together. They hurt going in, but that was nothing compared to them coming out. A few of them took chunks of healing head and hair with them as they left.

Of course my arm surgery had a hell of a lot more pain involved, but somehow being put under for surgery doesn't seems as bad-ass as my previous story.

Edit: Found the pic.

I'm so tough.......

.......I had major corrective surgery on both my feet 6 months old.
.......I had major corrective surgery on both feet at 12 months old
.......I had major corrective surgery on both feet at 18 months old
.......I had tubes put in my ears at age 3
.......I had my tonsils out at age 5
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot at age 7
.......I had major corrective surgery on my left foot at age 8
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot at age 9
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot age 11
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot age 12
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot age 13 (During the post op the nurse accidentally gave me too much morphine and I was tripping for 5 days)
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot age 15
.......I had major corrective surgery on my right foot age 17.
.......I had major surgery to remove 5 teeth - All 4 wisdom teeth and an adult molar that was impacted on another and was protruding into my nasal cavity. (During post op I accidentally OD on percoscet because I misread the prescription while I was still coming down off the anesthesia )

In perspective pushing something the size of a foot ball out an open the size of a lemon sounds like a fun challenge.
What, me worry?

The effort that people use to change their hair-style is remarkable.
