What if something happened to you, and you "thought" you lived through it. Even to this day ?????
I have an interesting theory about what could happen when you are killed sometimes.

I had a bit of a strange one a couple of years back. I was standing waiting for the tube (tube in London, I believe you yanks call it the metro or something!), and I could 'feel' a guy hanging around behind me.
I got an odd feeling, and sure enough when a tube was approaching he got really close behind me, just sort of waiting.
Now, I am a BIG guy. Not 'sort of big', but really big! I'm 6'3'', 18 Stone, ex-rugby player and in very good shape.
It turned out that this guy was trying to push someone (and he picked me for some reason) infront of the moving tube train. He had tried and failed before the records the court showed (cctv pics from tube platforms across London).
Anyway, I was prepared for something, and just as the train came in he gave me a shoulder barge in the lower back. I cought hold of him and pushed us both back away from the train. He then punched me in the face and tried to get away but a group of guys stopped him after about ten yards. I cought up with him, deliberately broke his arm in a restraining lock, and handed him over to the transport police.
He got a 4 year sentence, suspended due to the fact his partner had given birth to a girl that morning.

Ah, here is a good one I almost forgot about.
Back when I was a kid, probably like 7, give or take a year or two, I went for a picnic with my Sister and Grandma and Grandpa in the Mountains where they lived. We had to take the path to the top of the mountain which kinda wound it's way up the whole thing. Well on the way back down I slipped off the path, right at the spot where there was a drop off that was just shy of being a shear edge. I would have just slid to who knows where down the side of the mountain, probably rolling and tumbling more than sliding. However, I somehow, in one quick reflex grasp for anything, one of my fingers latched onto one of my sisters Belt Loops. Luckily she grabbed Grams or Gramps or she'd have joined me. I still remember that day so clearly. It was just a flash between 'Falling!! to Hanging there by one Finger!! & thinking how in the world did my finger snag that loop?? Man I was soooooo lucky!!!! Just think if she had worn a dress or something!!
