The internet is full of Christmas day hoverboard injuries

Despite the recent epidemic of explosions, hoverboards were the hot holiday gift this year.

And on Christmas, the internet was full of photos and videos of people wiping out and injuring themselves while trying their new hoverboards for the first time.

Here are a few good ones:
