    You know you're a Laser sailor when you discover a strange urge to throw yourself to the other side on the car when turning a corner!

    You know you're a Laser sailor when you feel a desperate need to reply first (or second) to every new thread on the Laser forum even when you have nothing constructive to add.

    I think it's when you finally find out that going downwind when it's blowing 20+; you realize that it really isn't such a bad idea to take your life into your own hands.

    You keep finding random cuts and bruises, and you can't remember when they happened.

    Nah, the lack of bruises just means you're not sailing hard enough. :D

    Your relationship with your hiking pants is a private matter.

    What I mean is that if you have properly fitting hiking pants, and your pads are in the right place, you should not get bruises.

    I don't think we are referring to bruises from normal hiking...more like the random cut on the shin that you don't notice until the water in the cockpit is pink, or the bruise on the forearm that makes people in the office wonder what you were doing over the weekend.

    could be, but it was never specified lol

    I just never seem to get hurt on my Laser, I know where to place myself so it's efficent for the boat and myself, and safe. And their really isn't much to get beat up on on a Laser

    But on other boats I sail on, Mumm 30's and other keel boats, forget about it, I get my fair share of brusies and cuts

    You know you're a Laser sailor when you will take a contrary opinion to any position stated on this forum just to prove that you're smarter than the other guy.

    Exactly. The spot where you mashed your toe, got rope burns on your fingers, rammed your shin into a trailer hitch, etc. etc. etc.

    Not that I've ever done any of these things ;)

    I find it hard to believe that there is anyone out there that has never lightly injured themselves at least a little bit while sailing, let alone at least a couple times every season.

    Re: where to find the Advil if you're a Laser sailer

    Exactly - I have a nice black eye from looking up at just the wrong time in a wild jibe! Nearly broke my cheekbone. Probably won't do that again.
