    Hahahaha awww. I know it must've been painful, but it is something you could see happening in the Simpsons. My dad actually did slip on a banana skin once.

    Serious question, have you seen a doctor? (Am I weird because that was my first thought? :p: )

    While I think it's safe to assume if you're managing to find the funny side you're probably not concussed, any blow to the head that knocks you out has a risk of cervical spine injuries (which might not be obviously apparent).

    If you haven't, you should definitely get checked out, even if it wasn't for very long and you think you feel okay. :yep:

    I havent seen a doctor, but Mum is a nurse so she examined me when I got home and cleaned the matted blood out of hair. What are Mum's for eeh!

    Trains go around sharp corners?

    The baggage facilities on trains are awful these days anyway.

    On the bright side, I got a free cup of tea and the chavs on the train kept their distance..

    Ouch, hope you're alright now.

    I've seen this nearly happen loads of times, I was on a pendolino the other day and one fell down onto the floor when it tilted, thankfully it was quiet and it didn't hit anyone.
