THE FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY


Recommended Posts

I think it's high time we "Planters of the Face" be recognised for our achievements, and contributions to the merriment of our fellow EUCers by sharing, in excruciating detail,  our pain and injury, in the futile hope that they might not follow in our face  foot steps.

towards that end I have created this FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY.

If you believe you deserve a certificate for you contributions to face plantism, pop me a private message, simply stating the approximate date, (month, DD, YY) and I'll create a certificate for you, and carefully hang it on the "wall" for all to laugh at  admire, just like mine   :D

Are you allowed to give yourself awards? To fix this hindsight, I hereby nominate you :smartass:

Does this certification require landing on the face or would the simple motion of a face plant suffice?

Perhaps we could have different classes depending on speed and body part contacted/injured. Perhaps an open face would result in a higher order over full face helmets.

This is an honor system.  Almost nobody has a camera ready waiting for their face plant.  Oh, yeah, and it's supposed to be humours.  Didn't think I'd have to spell that out.

@Smoother

Sorry, apparently my "rule 32" of the internet sarcastic joke didn't arrive intact... As someone who has faceplanted many times on (off of) many different methods of conveyance I understand no one would have a reason to claim one that didn't happen. It was meant as a joke. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Now I just wish I could find my "Plants to avoid" tee shirt which included: "Cactus Plants", "Poison Ivy Plants", and "Face Plants"

Does my MSuper cutout and subsequent rolling fall, all caught on camera, count as a faceplant :D

No such award is given to wearers of white sneakers.

Wow. I really didn't think this would be so difficult.  If you think you face planted, then it happened.  If you have a photo or screen shot to add that would be fun too, but not necessary.

Sorry. I tried several times to see humour in your message and failed.  I didn't want to turn this into a big discussion. But I know these threads take on a life of their own.  Why don't you submit a date and class and speed and be the 2nd certificate recipient? Send a pm to avoid unnecessary clutter on the thread.

Professor @Smoother, I would like to order 17x 2nd class certificates please... all made out to TFU. :unsure:

I don't recall the dates, except for the most recent one... yesterday. :(

 

EDIT: Make that 18, please...   :angry:  Last one dated today!

Look. As you probably gathered I'm creating these on the web and then copying the address over here.im not sure how long the originals will be kept where I make them, so if you want to preserve your certificate, or those of others (weird) then copy and paste the image to your own secure storage.  For all I know this page may suddenly get very blank In a week or two.

I hear you! Try getting everyone to agree on the rules of a simple EUC video contest.;)

This is one cert I can really, really, REALLY do without... :roflmao:

But I did an ASS-plant today, when I found out there was ice on the road by trying to brake...

Luckily  it was no brake-or-I-will-crash brake, but just stopping at a crossing. Suddenly I was on my arse and the EUC glided a meter or so in front of me. I didn't even get dirty, and the only thing hurting was my pride :D
