I’ve got a few…
It was about 1AM and I was on my way home from work (late night of sales) and my car was almost opened like a can of sardines against an 18 wheeler who was paying no attention at all when I was coming off a clover-shaped exit ramp. That was scary and I pulled over and started vomiting. A cop stopped (and after a sobriety check) and asked me what happened… the next day there was a report of a similar semi running off the road into some woods (where the driver was fatally wounded) in the same area. I’m not sure if it’s the same semi, but it still scares the shit out of me to this day.
I had a firearm explode, out of battery, in my hand. I don’t think I was close to death, but 50 years ago I likely would’ve lost my hand (and 10 years ago would’ve lost function in my left index finger) and potentially lost my life to gangrene or something similar.
I flipped a 4 wheeler when I was 9 and almost decapitated myself (and almost impaled myself).
I wrecked my car on a country road, I came around a curve too quickly, hydroplaned, couldn’t stop for the intersection and went straight into a ditch. Luckily there were no cars coming and I (and my passengers) were alright, but that could’ve lead to us being tboned or tboning someone, which could’ve been fatal.
I’ve flipped, wrecked, mangled or destroyed anything with a motor at least once in my lifetime (including boats and jetskis), and if it’s got four feet I’ve been thrown off of it or been kicked by it at some point or another.
