the concert i went to was small at a local place and i was on the edge of the mosh pit debating on joining when a girl i knew (and didnt really like because she was annoying) pushed me in and i fell into the pit.. i got stuck on the floor as people are tripping all over me and i was lucky because a bouncer got me off the floor but i was still stuck in the middle of the pit by then lol.. so me trying to get out of the pit was NOT fun since i was punched in the stomach, a shoe thrown at my face, kicked among other things.. needless to say i wasnt happy at this girl who pushed me into the crowd lol.. i would have joined in anyways but hello! i needed to be able to stand up and not fall face forward on the ground to be stepped on!! so have you ever been in a mosh pit? do you like them? what injuries have you gotten while being in one?

I have to say, I avoid these scenes if at all possible. I just don't want to be physically beaten in time to music. I have often wondered what the draw of a mosh pit. I guess there's solidarity in that shared experience. I would think that to survive you'd have to be pushing harder than you get pushed. But I see myself probably ending up in your position, at the bottom of the pile. Nope, doesn't sound like any fun to me.
