close to death?
one of my best friend's fell 50 ft onto solid rock while bouldering over a week ago. He has cuts and bruises, btu that was it. it freaks me out to think he really should have died. anyone else ever had a near death experience?
'Yeah, I'll get that cleaned up lickity-split. Speaking of lickity-split what do you say you and I meet up later, see what's going on? Just kidding. But seriously, I'm new in town, kinda lonely, looking for my parents..
holy shit, act of god maybe

Yeah, I've landed straight on my head from a 20+ foot drop skiing (no helmet. And the ground was solid ice)
I was medaflighted, no damage that I know of.
Ski patrol thought I was either dead or paralyzed.
I was unconscious for about 4 minutes, my blood pressure dropped dramatically and it didn't look good for me.
I've almost drowned. A friend and I was innertubing, we got to a part of the river that was class 5. We went to get out, I tripped and fell into the river. Got pummeled off cliffs and was trapped underwater about 15 feet. My foot was stuck in between a rock, the force of the water held me down. I thought for sure I was going to die. Nothing I did changed anything. But then after about a minute my foot came undone. Then I got thrown down some more rocks. Hit my head on every rock on the way down. but was ok.
I was driving over a crazy mountain pass. I was going pretty fast around 60 mph. I came to a hairpin turn, the sign suggested going 10 mph. There was no guard rail on the side of the road, if you fell off you would be thrown off a cliff.
I went to tap my brakes, nothing happened. I started to panic. My car rolled faster and faster torwards the turn and I could not stop it.
I pumped the brakes, nothing happened.
I freaked out. This was an extremely tight turn with a huge cliff off the road.
I had no choice. I pulled the ebrake. Nothing happened.
Holy shit! I was going to die. There wasn't a damn thing I could do about it. I closed my eyes, accepted death and prepared to be tossed off the cliff.
I kept my eyes shut, I must've been going over 70 mph now.
I was helpless.
A few seconds passed, I opened my eyes.
Somehow, I can not explain it, I had made it past the turn and I was still driving in the car.
Eat. Sleep. Breathe. Ski.
Haha i bet you needed to wipe the seat down after that
Don't be a toad, follow the ski-way code
I got stung by a wasp two days ago and apparently I'm allergic... my whole ankle is swelled up to the size of a football and I think its spreading and soon my leg will be really really fat... if I die from this reaction, it was nice knowing you all. haha.
