Near Death Experiences!

Posted 17 February 2012 - 12:11 PM

So I almost got struck by lightening today. :sweatdrop: I was walking to my home. It was cloudy but wasn't thundering or even drizzling. The first and the only lightening strike of tonight hit the light pole which was like 10 feet from me and the light exploded over my head. First person shooter gamers know what its like when you get hit by a stun granade, right? disoriented senses, blue light flashes and ears ringing. That's exactly how I felt there. :wacko: Anyhoo, apparently the luck was on my side it seems, came home with no injuries but the story about my second near death experience (first being getting hit by a motorbike :/ ) to tell. :)

Which got me interested to know if you guys ever dodged Mr. Death's slaps around your head... :devil2:

Ummm...

Almost struck by lightening twice. Once while on a trampoline in a thunderstorm, the other while hiking up a mountain.

I've been washed off a peer during a tropical storm, pulled out by rip tides twice, and drown (actually died and was resuscitated) when I was 2 in my pool (doctor said I was going to be retarded... I showed him!)

I've rolled a tractor trailer. I've also rolled my mustang, purposely, going 100 down the dirt roads out in the acreage and quickly tilting my wheel for a left turn... my friend alomst died in that as well. The door on our camper also flew open once while driving to Kilington VT and my father caught me mid-air as I was falling out of the vehicle.

I've been shot once, and stabbed 4 times. Had my hand crushed in a fifth wheel. Trampled by a horse. Ran over by a car. And nearly went into a hay bailer.

...

should I continue? Elaborate?

I almost fell off of the side of a cliff into some very sharp rocks and some water. Lucky for my I grabbed hold of a branch and as I was falling I found a small little foothold to stop me.

Jesus...I'll bet if I read the fine print of my health insurance policy there's prolly an exclusion in there for being within a 500m radius of LOD.

I was hospitalized with a nightmare case of meningitis when I was 3. Docs told mom if I lived at all, I would be severely mentally retarded. She said she thinks they were right.

Dylan (my name) is a legendary Welsh hero who was born of the sea, the name is said to literally mean "son of the sea". I was for a time convinced the ocean just wanted me back.

I guess it was too much for a few neural paths to be burned and decrease the amount of emotes in a post. Damn you Death!

Now that you mention it there was this incident back on a high school summer trip where I had a brief flash of doom and got hauled off a plane with some class mates. Man were they sore, but it happened! The vision that is! Everyone was sad and junk but a few months later, when I was totally just getting over it, people in my class started committing suicide or something. I guess they were tots more sad than I was. I found out that I must have pissed off Death or something so he was getting his reaps in the order they were supposed to die on the plane. Man that sucked.

So yeah, sort of a NDE but not really a bummer. Some mornings I wake up feeling like I repeated this five different times. That's also a drag.

Given how many times He's tried and failed, you prolly don't want to be on even the same side of the freakin' globe when God takes his next whack at him. :)

I am curious LOD, who shot you and why?

Edit: I suppose I should actually post my experience as well


I guess the closest thing I have had to a near death experience was when I was 13 and driving my bike. I was on a sidewalk driving down a steep hill with my friend driving in front of me. I got to close to him and my front wheel touched his back one and it caused the handlebars of the bike to swing and I got impaled by handle breaks. The bars came in at an upward angle so the handlebars hit me in the balls and the hand breaks drove into me right above my dick.

I was in the hospital for two weeks recovering. My balls were swollen like oranges and were black and blue. If it got me any lower it would have cut my dick off at the root, I imagine I would have bled out(or at least wished I would have).

I don't ride bikes anymore.

Knowing LOD's tales - LOD probably let his, as Prince calls it, pussy control slip and the crazed broad dove for the gun first.
