Your physics would work if the head was a free object, but it's kinda attached to a neck. So yes, it's perfectly valid that your elbow could go first, followed by your head once your body slumped over after it was knocked off balance. Kind of like kicking the stool out from under a man about to be hung from the gallows.
Well when it passes then they'll see that it's not always there and hopefully realize that you were telling the truth. If a teacher calls in your parents will deny it and be confused since they think someone is bullying you and that should clear things up at home, I'm sure at school they'll think your parents are lying... But it's not so fucked, it's not like you're grounded for being bullied just both parties think you're getting beaten when you're not.
I think what OP means is that his elbow was resting on the table, and his forearm was protruding up, and then his face was on his closed fist, about a foot off the table. Then, his elbow slid off the edge of the table. causing his arm to not be able to support his head anymore, then his fist and arm hit the table, followed by his head. therefore, his head hit his fist hard enough to leave a mark. do you get it yet?
I don't understand it either. If you are asleep, and you're face is on your fist, your elbow slipping off of the desk wouldn't make you punch yourself...it would just make your hand move, and surely not hard enough to bruise your cheek. There would be a big red spot on your cheek because of it laying on your fist, but that would be all...or so I would think...
My bet would be that as his elbow slipped off the desk, he probably smacked that area around the joint, which sent a good shock through his arm which is what probably woke him up. And then, when he woke up, his first reaction was probably to jerk his arm back up. At the same time, while he was asleep, he was probably supporting his head on his fist, so when it slipped off the desk, it too fell. He most likely didn't have time to move his head out of the way of his fist. Of course, that's only my speculation on what could have happened. But since people seem confused on the matter, I thought I might offer a plausible scenerio.
For those who don't get it, beside my desk is a table a little bit lower than the desk. When my elbow hit that, it stopped, but my head kept on going and technically my face hit my fist, although my fist also hit my face. Sorry couldn't put that in the story, we can only write 300 characters, so yeah. I still have no idea how I could've hit my face so hard I got a mark :(
