I almost tried stage diving at a Lamb of God concert once.

In all seriousness though, I can recall one time. I was camping somewhere with a few friends and we went off into the woods, ignorantly believing the entire camp ground had trails and markers. After walking for like, an hour, we had no clue where we were and started back tracking. Long story short, I climbed about 50/60 ft up a ninety degree hill to get back to our site, and fell near the top. I grabbed a root after free falling 10 ft, and made my way back up. It was horrifying; I'm actually very afraid of heights now.

I'd say that your death is a significant possibility.

i drove in winter weather once going pretty slow. ended up hitting a patch of slush and rolled my vehicle, which landed about 30ft from a frozen creek. and my brother was in there too. i don't underestimate that kind of shit anymore. i always focus on driving the best i can.

When you're driving a car, a single wrong move can potentially be fatal. If that isn't a significant risk then I don't know what is.

and this is the point i was making. really, this is the key difference between a good driver and a bad driver. like, my sister is a crazy driver, but the thing is she's never made a mistake when things could be bad. unlike me. lol.

In the UK about 8 people die in car crashes each day. There are 33 million cars in the UK...

In what way is this significant?

You're over-thinking what I was saying.

I'm just saying that your death overall is quite probable. It could be the little things, the tiny chances of death in everyday life that eventually can kill you when the right circumstances occur.

This as well, coming from another South Dakotan. I lost control of my car for a short while twice today.

My death overall is certain And yeah it could be, but the chances of the circumstances being right isn't significant. That's all I'm saying.

Last winter I was getting out of the car after parallel parking in the city. I was just about to put my foot out when a car slid past me taking my car door off. Scared the shit out of me figuratively. Almost literally too.

Not to make you relive it but yeah, we all need to know. For scientific and preventative reasons.

Well, I was riding a horse on a mountain, basically on the edge of a cliff near the top of some switchbacks, and the horse in front of me decided to kick the shit out of the horse I was on. My horse was literally scrambling to not fall off the edge.

After that I proceeded to get off and walk the rest of the way.
