    Anyone had an experience they thought might leave them dead?

    I once went surfing right after a tornado in Asia, and got pulled out to sea in the strong tide.

    I really thought I was going to be lost at sea... alone, no life jacket, 45 degrees celcius heat.

    I eventually managed to cross the current at a 45 degree angle and hit an outcrop of rocks. But it was close, and really made me respect the sea.

    You guys?

    Nothing jawdropping that I can remember- if it was I would probably remember it... just the many occassions I have been walking across the road, daydreaming and cars have nearly smashed into me, followed by swearing, beeping horns etc.

    I got eletrecuted by 16,000Volts yesterday in my research lab, luckily the current was rated at only 200mA, 1 or 2Amps and I don't think I'd be writing this.

    Me and my friend got chased by a horse when walking through a field and only just made it under the fence a the top of the field before the horse could reach us. I've never ran so fast in my life

    Damned horses, I swear they are the devil.

    One chased me once when I was cycling, I got over a fence, but it trounced ny bike to a pulp.

    I also met a farmer in the head injury clinic where I used to work, he was kicked in the head by a horse, that then bolted... as it bolted the rope tied to its neck wrapped around the guy and crushed his rib cage... he lived, but he too had lost his affinity for the animals.
