My mom brought up how my sister attempted to save my life and now has a scar on her leg for ever from it and all and like then we brought up how i couldve died a decent amount of times.

1. Forest fire
2. Flipped over my bike and if I didnt wear a helmet I would have prob been in pretty much danger.
3. Rollerblading I broke my arm and the way i landed, my head nailed the ground so hard that my helmet has a big crack in it. And it was right by the temple, the docs said that if I wasnt wearing my helmet they would have been discussing organ donations with my parents(thats really a scary thought).
4. When my sister attempted to save me from falling off a swing at the age of like 2(no clue what I was doing in the first place).

My mom states that the reason ive been alive for all those things is because god has a purpose for me here, im just waiting to see what it is.

Anyone have anything that relates to this or just want to discuss this?

1 - Almost got shot hunting, I heard the shot whiz past my head. I got clipped in the arm by one of the pellets. (This was from a 20gauge)
2 - I was standing up riding my bike down a hill (I was standing on the seat) and I ran into a tree. I completely wrecked myself, had a bad concussion and a fracture of my skull...Doc said I was lucky I didn't completely ruin my head.
3 - Was riding on a sled down suicide hill, ran into a tree because I couldn't stop and knocked myself out for a while.
4 - Got hit by a car playing car tag. (that's not smart, I don't reccommend trying it.)
5 - Almost drowned.

Hmm...

All I can think of is when I got drug 88ft. from a car that didn't stop. Me and a friend were laying down on our skateboards going down the steepest hill we've ever seen. Car was coming from the left, didn't see it I guess. My friend got hit dead on, flew like 20ft., knocked out and was bleeding from the ear. I guess I tried to go under the car, my hood got caught on the drivetrain, board was under my lower body, so all I got out of it was 4 facial fractures, 1 big scar on my shoulder (looks like I got burned), and another small one on my head, which is now a bald spot. The fractures were nothing though. My friend is deaf in his left ear, broke his thumb, and had a huge skull fracture, concussion. The guy said he thought he hit a dog...

One of my 9 lives down.

-almost drowned (too many times)
--fell through the ice on a pond.. i went in a hole and the way i went in i slide into the water and away from the hole.. i went to surface and my head hit the ice.. so i had to go around to find the hole.. might add that i was in grade 1 and in complete snow suit,snow pants, boots, just about everything that makes ya weigh a 1000 lbs.
---was on a inflatable raft on the lake (lake huron, one of the Great Lakes, its big) so i was on it.. and had to carry my buddies rafts too.. well a huge south wind came in and the other rafts on top of me acted as a sail.. i was being blown out into the lake crazy fast.. i was out past the middle of the fish nets.. easily 500+ metres out (1500 feet i guess) i had to let 2 off the rafts go and paddle with my hand back.. the other rafts i let go were gone from sight disturbingly fast

-Hit with a sharp rock less than one inch from my temple at the age of eight when my brother got angry and threw a rock at me. My parents said that if it were to hit my temple, I probably would have died.
-I've been in about 4 car accidents, none of which I have been injured in, but someone else in the car always has been.
-Hitting a fence on a snowmobile going about 45-60 mph when I was 12 and breaking my femur. Self expanitory, I could have been severely effed up.
-There is probably many other times.

There is a lot, but I'll only list the most scary ones.

1) Drank so much alcohol, almost had to get my stomach pumped. Got a biiiiiig lecture there.

2) Rode my uncle's Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7, gave it too much gas, pulled me up and I thought I was going to loose it and die. Even though I had a helmet on.

3) Lots of crashes on pocket bikes and gopeds that have been way to close for comfort. Why I wear a helmet all the time for now on.

4) Me and a few friends, got in a huge fight. My friend got stabbed and the punks ran away. I had lots of cruises and cuts. My friend made it okay thank god.

5) When I had a unicycle, I rode it down a hill, and lost control. No helmet on either, Hit my head realllllly hard. Had a concussion.

6) When I was visiting a friend down in Kansas City, Missouri *ghetto* I got mugged and beat up. THat sucked. Thought I was going to die because I saw a gun in his pants.

Thats just a few of them. Might post more later.

wow the only thing i can think of is this.....

i was in switzerland and we went to a bunch of rocks, and my russian friends and I left the group to go and rock climb,...well one russian jumped about 2-4 feet accross this really fast, freezing cold deep water...and about 50 feet after the jump the water was rushing threw atlest 40 rocks then about 10 feet of calm water, then another 60 rocks the water rushed threw like rapids....well the russian jumped over and he was like **** **** i almost lost my condom! it was in his pocket so he said "chris you gotta take it" so he threw it to me and i grabbed it and while dioing it i fell into the deep cold water...i was scared as **** cause i knew, I KNEW if i went into those rocks, i would die instantly,and there would be no way of living threw that! so i had the condom and dropped it and tried swimming to the rock but the current was too stronge, so my friend held out his hand and i touched his fingertips while fastly flowing towards death into the rocks isntantly, and i barly got his fingertips and he pulled me onto the rocks!!!

There would ahve been no way i could live if it wasnt for that russian! Thank God for vadislav! Man i wouldnt have been back in the states if he didnt get me! thats abotu the only scary thing i can think of...that was really live threatening and now i will not go near that river again lol too afraid...

I helped save someone before. A guy smashed into a telephone pole near my house on a motorcycle, it was pretty dark and would have been hard to see him in the ditch. Luckily I heard it and went over and told me neighbor who was a local volunteer EMS. He called for help and they guy made a full recovery. They had a little reward ceremony for me and the wife gave me a card with $$ in it.

ouch. that would have sucked if it had happened to you where i live. the hospital is just gay and stupid. they don't take the walk in patients in the er in order of severity, noo they take them in order that they got there. so you could have a guy with his fingers chopped off sitting in a bag of ice waiting for like 3 hours, while the kid that needs 2 stitches from a fight goes ahead of you. its whack.

I was on a bigger bike then I should have been at about the age of 12. It wasn't our xr100 it was one of my uncles other bikes out at the farm. Well I could handle our bike fine and I grabed his and went around and we had this pretty good size jump that wasn't any big deal. We would just gun it and take the jump...well I forgot that the bigger bike had a bigger 'gun it' so Im jetting up on this approach and I held through but didn't do so great in the air...the bike was way back heavy and I wasn't worth a crap for putting a lean on it. only weighed like 100 pounds. So I go down hard on the rear wheel and slide straight back. smashed my back down on this chunk of rock...wasn't cool I could be in a wheelchair today.

another time I hit a rut in the field road and blew the tire out instantly. bike lurched but it was smaller and I was bigger at the time. I went down with the bike but only when getting up did I realize that seeing they were in harvet there was the corn stalks are all sticking up like pungi sticks...not cool I was more than a little scared on the walk home.
