What all have you needed stitches for?

Don't worry, you don't have to count I've had too many to remember. But where were they?
Mine were: 3 moles surgically removed, wisdom teeth, crotch (from a 4th degree tear w/ first pregnancy and slight tear with 2nd pregnancy, and above my eye from a car wreck. I also had my appendix removed but they just glued it back together, no weird looking scars from those incisions!
