So far I have very little experience breaking parts unlike the multiple frames that you've broken.
I've only broken my seat post, X-9 shifter, and multiple chains, not very exciting I know.

About the only things I have not broken are handlebars and stem, thank goodness.

Edit: Actually I've never had a problem with a front wheel. Rear wheel, not so much.

It would seem that I am not riding hard enough.

Any by "breaking" a part, I assume you mean broken beyond repair. Being able to fix something means you didn't fully break it.

I've bent bars, but broke a stem before.
I think the only things I haven't broken are a front hub and seatpost.

And I break way more than anything on the bikey.

Lets see here...

GT LTS-1: left crank (Shimano XT) cracked, fork arch broke (Judy XL) and Kore handle bar bent. All one crash, my left side didn't fare any better either. Over time I split a rear XTR hub shell in half (between the flanges)

Intense M1: four rear seatstay struts, three from bent derailleur hangers (non-replaceable) and one bashed in on the disc caliper side. One upper shock bolt.

Countless mangled rear derailleurs, rims and such.

How the hell do you break a headset?
If the headset is loose you can damage the headset and flare the head tube for double the fun. You could also flare the head tube if the headset is cracked.

I've never had headset/headtube problems as I hate play in the front end.

I think the only thing I haven't broken is handlebar, headset, seatpost, stem, frame, and BB.

behind you with a snap pop
I have cracked a DH frame,
Dented fork lowers beyond repair,
A few derailleurs,
Numerous pedal spindles,
Some blown up pedals,
A few crank arms bent,
Seat post heads,
Saddle rails,
Snapped brake lever bodies
Fubared some rotors
Exploded a rear wheel
Stripped rear hubs
Broken shock bolts.
I once broke the whole bottom cup of a headset off.
But the only issue I actually have on a regular basis is destroying rear rims. I am Ike Turner and my rear rims are Tina.

Two Derailers, now running Avilio (school costs a lot)
Handle bars, crashed on TRT
Wheels, killed a rim or two.
Hayes Brakes, they suck.

Broke my Chris King headset, bent/broke some mavic wheels, bent my old SWD frames swing arm, 2 seat posts, and at least 3 seats, bent lots of derailers on rocks and whatnot. Being over 200lbs is good for breaking things.
