Two. One on my knee when I fell onto broken glass when I was young, you should of seen the amount blood! The other is behind my right ear when I got bottled across the back of my head, you should of seen the sheer amount of blood from that too. :lol: Luckily you can't see that scar because its behind my hair, but it did ruin a perfectly good shirt. I usually don't get injures, I'm very lucky, I've played rugby through my childhood and teenage years and been in a fair few fights on (and off) the pitch and never broken a bone or been scarred. But Glass to me is like Kryptonite to Superman!

I just acquired a new scar last month!

Mrs. Kong, Berlin, and I were getting ready to head home for a week of vacation for Canada Day. I was carrying a ceramic (French onion soup) bowl full of M&Ms around with me so I could snack while preparing. We were all packed up and ready to go, and I thought I'd head upstairs to double-check the oven, windows, etc.

So I was running/leaping up the stairs, tripped on the top step, dropped the ceramic bowl (which shattered on the tile floor), and then landed knee-first on one of the huge dagger-shards. It cut me through my pants, so I didn't know how bad it was, I just knew it broke the skin, so I called to Mrs. Kong, "band-aid!" While she was fetching one, I rolled up my pant leg and changed my mind, calling out, "nope, towel & hospital!"

It delayed our trip by a few hours, but I was able to get stitches and warned not to swim all week (the hottest, most beautiful week of vacation beside the pool...).

Now I have a nice big red knee-scar as a memento of this M&M injury.

Small cut above my left eye that actually gets re-opened once in a while in sparring. Lots of scar tissue there.

And a deep gash on my forehead thanks to someone busting out brass knuckles in the middle of a brawl when I was a thick-headed teenager.

Some days ago I cut three different fingers on my left hand in three days time. Each finger on a different day. I also happen to have various scars on the left half of my body while there's no visible scars at all on the right half of it.
