I was coming home from school today, and I almost got hit by lightning. I got off the bus. It was raining and hailing, and I started walking home, and then I saw mom had the truck parked over by the sidewalk. I turned and walked over, and a few seconds later, lighting struck a few paces ahead of what my path usually is. I felt the hair stand up on the back of my neck, it was so f***ing freaky. So yeah, I couldve died. Just thought I'd let the Pit know.

I almost died because I poured gasoline in my eyes when I was 11. It was a "hey guys, watch this lolzorz!!1!!1" moment.

...Ok, I probably wouldn't have died, but I could have gone blind.

Same thing happened to me... Me and my friend were in a park during a thunderstorm and we looked at each other and our hair was standing up ( each had long hair ) so we ran. Later his dad told up electricity was trying to channel itself to the sky from us.

WIN!

I don't know anything intelligent to tell you ts. You were lucky this time, so I guess the best thing to do with this is telling it to your friends until they can't here it anymore.

You are chased by Death itself, watch the Final Destination trilogy to see what you have to do.

did anyone else just have Ride The Lightning playing in their heads when they read that?

But I don't enjoy helping people.

Wait...maybe that's why God tried to kill me.

I got struck by lightning when I was 9. Not a fun thing. Be lucky you didn't get hit.

This is weird cause there was a thing on the news here in ireland last night bout a 14 year old kid getting killed by a freak bolt of lightning when he was walking home...

Thats ****ed up....

I got hit by a motorbike the other week, do you see me making threads about it? And let's face it, that's way cooler than almost getting hit by lightning. Jealous much?
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Same thing happened to me. But instead it was me hitting the lightning.

You can't almost get hit by lightning. If it's raining the ground will be wet and the lighting will be conducted through the water. Maybe not lethal, but if you're a few paces away it would certainly give you a nasty electric shock.
