Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. I was lifting a couple boxes off of the
top of a taller-than-me stack. There was an old Apple Disk ][ drive (with
the heavy metal enclosure) sitting on top of the top box. I knew this. I
told myself, "Don't tip the boxes". So what did I do? I forgot what I
just told myself and tipped the boxes as I lifted them off. All of a
sudden, WHAM! Blunt force trauma to the head. The corner of the hard
drive enclosure walloped the top of my skull. I had a nice corner-shaped
impression on my head. A bit of blood, but no stitches required.
