Aaahhh!! I have had so many close brushes with death, it's scary! It makes me think you know, like we can die at any moment and it's so easy it's kinda scary. Anyways tell us all your closest calls with the the Grim himself.

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

When I was 10 I fell through the ice while ice fishing, I would be dead if it weren't for my grandfather. The thing is, I can remember crystal clear this one guy who was within arms reach of me. He just stared at me as I flailed around trying to catch the corner of the ice. I'll never forget his face, or forgive him if I see him again

I almost fell off a small mountain, and I almost drowned.

Those are the closest I've come to dying.

i often have urges to throw things at walls. and kick toddlers. i'm pretty sure that without the moral/legal/ethical ramifications, kicking a toddler like a football would be the most entertaining thing in the world.

Last night I almost overdosed on Hydrocodone.
No joke. Threw up blood/food and it was awful...

The high was great though.

i nearly got impaled by a pole when i was about 8 or 9

i was standing on the street by the parked cars with my friend and we were looking off in the distance to some kid doing something, there was one of those long trucks (smaller than a semi) coming up behind us and we didnt mind because we thought it would just pass by, we didn't realize we were into the street too far. my friend turned around and pulled me back without saying anything and i was like wtf did you do that for and then he said that truck would have hit me

in retrospect we will never know if it would have hit me, but i trust his judgement and thank him for doing that although he was only like 11 at the time

I've almost drowned a few times, and have almost been hit by various vehicles. My friend OD'd on E the other day and almost died. It was pretty nerve-wracking.

When I was younger I got my tonsils removed, and everything was great for a week or so. But as it turns out, a vein in my neck didn't heal. I started throwing up blood. It ran down my throat, and a damn near drowned in it. I went to the hospital, and they sent me home. It happened a few more times and then I finally went back and got surgery to close the vein. The whole time I was so anemic I couldnt eat or stand up. It sucked.

During the time when me and my friends made an independent film group I did quite a bit of stunt work.

One stunt involved doing a handspring over a metal fence that was around my neck height, and had horrible grip, as it had a looping pattern. As I ran up to jump I missed with one hand, and so was unable to push my self round. Because of this I tucked my head down out of instinct and ended up smashing my forehead/eyebrows area into the other side of the fence. I fell down straight onto my back on the rough grass, and got up straight away and brushed it off. I didn't want to draw too much attention to myself as it was mildly embarrassing.

I felt dizzy for a long time so might have suffered from concussion, but I did wonder for quite a while if I could have possibly smashed my nose into my skull, or even just hit my head hard enough to go into a coma.

Unfortunately it was just something I wanted to try out rather than use in a film, and we didn't have any cameras with us. Would have been interesting to see how close I was to fully hitting my head.

I almost drowned when I was like 7 or 8. I was riding my bike around my grandparents' pool (not the smartest idea, considering I had just learned how to ride on two wheels) and I fell in. Luckily my grandma was outside gardening at the time so she helped me out.

I've almost got hit by a few cars, but that's about it otherwise.

Oh, and I was really really small when I was born (weighed less than 4 pounds, my dad said he could hold me in the palm of his hand) and the doctors thought I wasn't going to make it. But I'm still here.

Almost drowned in a rainwater outfall at the beach if it hadn't been for an elderly couple. As far as I remember, I didn't have any accidents at the Grand Canyon either.

One year that I was going through a lotttttttttt of stuff, I had an ulcer and basically anything I ate I'd throw it all up... I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks... I was I think 99 pounds at 5'6 tall... It sucked a lot. I'm not sure if I was definately going to die, but they ran like a crapload of tests on me because if I lost that much more weight in 2 weeks again I could've died? Also, I've had like 7 or 8 concussions. Supposedly the next few I get might kill me.. but I ... like hockey too much to stop playing.

Not really close to death with this one but freaky enough...shortly after 9/11 I had been in the navy for 4 years already and was on watch. So I am up on the flight deck with my M14 and everything else strapped to me when I see this small single prop plan dive over the railroad bridge (that was raised) and heads straight towards me and my boat. After a second I guess the pilot realized he was going the wrong way and he turned hard and got the hell out of there. I couldn't believe it but about one more second I would of had my rifle off my shoulder and been shooting down a plane...all in Portsmith VA. Other then that, fell off roofs, choked...was on a weapons elevator when some asshole snapped the break on a skid and 2 tons of weight fell about 4 inches...I got the **** off that L real quick.

one time i was riding my bike and i didnt know how to use the brakes and a car was backing up from the drive way and i crashed into it,everyone that was on the street was laughing at me , and this other time i was riding my bike when i was still learning how to ride, some jackass on his motorcycle was speeding down my street and i wasnt good at turning so i had no other choice but to jump off. and 3 years ago i went to mexico and we went to the beaches and i wanted to get in the water so i went in the water with my jeans on and the waves took me pretty far so i started screaming cause its hard to swim with jeans on so some lifeguard guy comes running out of nowere and starts swimming like crazy and takes me to the sand.

I apparently almost died a day or two after I was born and I had to go in the like E.R. but I don't remember that (of course). Last week I almost went blind cause I had some strange eye infection. If I had waited another hour or two before deciding to check myself into an urgent care center, I would have lost my vision forever which would have kinda sucked. Now I just have scars on my eyes...

I had a couple of near death experiences.

When i was 3, i stuck a nail into an electrical socket and got blasted around 10 feet back.
When i was 5, i was walking around a pool, and fell in. Luckily there was this woman who helped me out before i drowned.
When i was 10, i got hit by a car, but it was going pretty slowly, so nothing serious.
2 years ago, when i was 13, i got severe meningitis, which could be fatal, but thankfully wasn't.

Thats it for the first 15 years of my life.
