Beware of (carpet) burns

While other Nepali folks are either staying indoors and wondering if they can ever leave their residences (The 18-hour curfew's been extended by another four hours) or walking about enjoying social interactions with police and Army, it appears that I, too, have to be wary of injuries.

A report from Wales (where PTSD's newly favourite show starring the Doctor is filmed) says:

"One in six armchair football fans were found to have hurt themselves while indulging on over-exuberant celebrations in their own living rooms.

The supporters sustained their injuries cheering goals scored by their team, incurring ailments like carpet burns from knee dives, concussion from banging heads with a fellow fan and bruised knees from hitting the coffee table mid-jump."

Scroll down to the last page of the article for some good examples of what happens when football players (not us spectators) indulge in excessive celebrations.
