Default Re: Near death experiences

I don't think I could've died from this but when I was around 10 years old, I tried to boost the field on my electromagnet by inserting thin copper wire leads into the wall outlet. What a surprise!! Fried the whole darn thing and reaction knocked me back a few feet hitting my head on a shelf behind me and went unconscious for a minute. Scary...

I ate a burrito. Dammit, my life is so safe compared to your guys! Getting almost arrested, there was a bunch of those but not getting killed!

i fell outta a truck going around a corner because the door wasnt closed all the way, it would close (1958 GMC fully restored). when i fell luckily no cars where coming. got up and walked back to the truck and hoped in and we drove away.

mr.mixx what kinda gun? because if he was aiming at ur head he almost certainly would have killed u unless its a pussy BB gun or something

i've had a couple....

when i was 5 years old i was bit by a dog on my face. supposedly if the dog's teeth had sunk in like 3 centimeters or something to the right i would have gone blind and been a vegetable (basically dead lol)

also, about a year ago i was in the car after school (mom picked me up) and we were in the Miata (a really tiny car). anyway we came to stop light. when it turned green, for some reason my mom didn't hit the accelerator for a second or two, the next thing we knew, the guy in the lane next to us who had accelerated immediatly when the light turned green, got smashed in the side by a red light runner at about 45 miles per hour. if we had taken off right at green, we would have got crushed between the 2 cars. and trust me, in a Miata, we definetly would have been a pancake.

maybe more, can't think of any...
