S'all in the title. I figured some of us might have some interesting shit to say with this question.

For me, I can't say that to my knowledge I've been very close to death. The two closest times I can think of is 1. Driving on I-10 in the middle of the day, with traffic and shit going 110 mph (I was an idiot, then. It was in my mother's cadillac cts, and I wasn't even insured. Needles to say it was fucking cool as shit, though.), and 2. Driving on the same interstate going 70 mph, when I guy going ~85-90 mph cuts me off, and if I hadn't swerved into the other lane immediately, it would have definitely been a terrible accident.

Yeah, no close-close calls for me, but you guys?

I tripped on my dad's foot when I was around 4 and hit my head on a video case in mediaplay. They told me the impact was a hair's width from making a fatal fracture.

Numerous substance abuse times when I was younger.

One of the more funny times was when my mum took me and my next older brother on the interisland ferry (I live in New Zealand, the ferry is like a small cruise ship that goes between the North and South Island)

Anyway I was like 7 and my brother was 9... He decided to hang me off the side of the ship on the top deck (maybe 5 stories high) by my ankles lol. If he had dropped me I would have been sucked into the propellers...

Man did he get a hiding when mum caught him doing that lol.

When I was about 9 or 8 years old I swam with friends in a lake, the current took me away far from the shore. I was about to drown. I struggled a lot to resist the current and I came back to the shore

traumatized

i dosed off for a second after a long morning of driving, on a 3 lane interstate, and over-corrected the wheel when i opened my eyes and realized i was a few feet away from the median. my car spun around 180 degrees and i ended up facing oncoming traffic. luckily there wasn't a car directly near me.

Well one time I was on a train and this Middle Eastern guy with a bomb-sized bag sat right next to me. Scared the shit out of me, particularly when I realized the train went right past a military base.

My dad parked behind this guy at a red light. On the train tracks. And the train came. And he panicked and went in reverse just in time.

Had a cop pull a gun on me and my friends when I was 15.

Also had a wooden 2 story deck fall on my head and crack it open. I had blood gushing from the top of my head and my whole body was covered in blood. I had to walk to the hospital to get fixed up, and I was dozing in and out of conciousness.

Shit sucked, yo.

Last night, Me and my friends were walking home at 4 in the morning. This car goes past us and stops in the middle of the road, the guys get out, so we take off, they get back in the car and chase us. We ran over 3 miles darting through neighborhoods to get away. I was ****ing scared.

One time I was being a tard and driving way too fast on a country road, met a car in a tight corner and i had to cut the corner closer than I had intended to. I just about lost control, but I missed them somehow. They honked at me. I felt like a jerk.

11 years ago when I went to a rec center for a friend's birthday party, I made the mistake of getting separated from the rest of the group and therefore almost drowned in a part of the pool that was 4' 6" deep (keep in mind I was 8 at the time, and apparently didn't see the depth markers). Fortunately some random guy swimming nearby saw me struggling and carried me out of the water, and I was eventually able to rejoin the rest of the group (while coughing up water like nobody's business). I probably wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for him...

Needless to say, I felt miserable for the rest of the evening.

when I was 8, I choked with some chicken and wasn't able to breathe for what seemed like an eternity. my dad grabbed me by the legs and shaked me until the food got out of the way.

5 minutes later, a piece of chicken came out of my nose.

6 years old, almost drowned in a pool (got stuck on something)

14 years old, almost ran over the director of the FBI on my bike while he was surrounded by armed agents. I am not making this up - he was buying groceries and I was biking around in the parking lot. In my defense he got out of the car very suddenly.

I'll leave the chicken choking jokes to others.

When I was very little (I had just learned how to walk), I crawled behind the barrier and almost walked off the Grand Canyon. My dad got me at last second though.

My grandmother loves to tell me that story every time I see her.

I also overdosed about two years ago.

Thats about it.

I have a fear of deep water, when I get submerged, my body goes into shock and I have a full panic attack. Well I slipped on a boat ramp near Corpus Cristi, Texas and fell into the Gulf of Mexico. I scraped both of my legs on some huge rocks, and barely managed to grab onto a rock and pull myself up (not sure how I did that). I got pulled out of the water with these huge gashes in my leg, and I was shaking convulsively, while barely being able to breathe.

Fell of a table and cracked my head on a marble floor when i was like 3 or 4.

and I was heading toward a fork in the road, where everyone normally turns right. Well a guy comes out from that right side of the road (blind) and comes right out into the middle of the fork in front of me going about 50 (its like a 25 MPH road). Somehow we ****in swerved AROUND eachother so we were both on the wrong side of the road, and then ANOTHER mother****ing asshole comes speeding down the LEFT side of the fork going about 45 (this side is also blind) and I'm in his ****in lane.

Luckily I managed to get back just in time, but he would have T-boned my side of the car at about 50 MPH.
Dead soldier! Go now to Valhalla!

today when i was riding my motorcycle an old lady just about turned right infront of me.
