Learn How To Foot Brake Well

I know my personal stories are quite boring and no-one really cares about me but heres one that I hope entertains you.
I recently found out I can stop quite well from fair speeds. Yesterday I was doing maybe 30 down a hill when I saw a car pull out of its driveway. I started airbraking to see if it would stop blocking the whole road but no it didn't. So I decided I needed to footbrake. So I put my foot down. Then it catches and I do a superman onto the asphalt. It was like a painful slip'n'slide. I got multiple cases of deep roadrash (very white) with one on my elbow going about a cm deep. I ruined a pair of pants and also managed to take a chunk out of my cell phone (it's terrible anyways so I'm hoping this will help me get a new one). So no riding for a week or so, but this is good for you guys, because I will now actually post things. 
P.S. Has anyone noticed the fact you make alot of jokes when you're injured?
