hi ive had some close shaves in my time.
the one that pops into my head now is when i was 14 (33 now)
my brother and i was living with foster parents in a tiny village in england.
we spent a lot of timeplaying outdoors in the countryside and large wooded areas.
We done what most kids do, building dens and treehouses..
then one day i had an old broken tennis raquet, took the string of and made my brother and bows and arrows.
i made the arrows from canes with nails strapped to the end, then went into the woods to c if we could get a
any way i was about 20-30 yards away from my brother wen i noticed he spotted something and as he took aim
it ended up pointing in my direction and he let the arrow fly...
this is where it tripped me out...everything slowed down i could see my brothers shocked face having let go to early
at the same time i could see this arrow heading towards my face, it was so slow i could see the back end of the arrow making big circles because the flight had come of it got nearer and nearer and caught my outer eye, it brushed past my eye and my ear leaving a small graze...i count myself so very lucky, but its so wierd that time seemed to slow right down and i was aware of what was going on...
any sorry if that was a rant but i wanted to share with the op
That river of flim thing . . . really messed me up, I feel it is all an illusion now and we can choose our programing.

I mean, it's crazy.. the very first memory I have is of me standing before a mirror and telling myself who I am. Crazy! Yet, true.

My life has been a real mess sometimes I wonder how I survive. I should have been dead over 25 times. I've had 3 fevers that were critical. 108.5, packed in ice twice. I've been electrocuted twice, 220VAC and 1.5 Million volts DC. Frozen in a pond, crawled out and survived. Pinned by my car in freezing weather against a snow drift while scraping the windows. Drowned and my dad resuscitated me. Shot at while sighting in my hunting rifle. Shot at renovating a house for a friend. Shot at by a girl friends ex, hit in the back. Fell off 3 story house under construction, near broken bricks and rebar. Kicked in the head by a horse. Hit my head on a rock sledding at over 60MPH. Broke my neck and tailbone on a BMX jump. Stabbed twice, once in a bar for no reason. 3 Head on collisions that totaled the cars and I walked away each time. Meningitis, inner ear infection so bad my ear looked dead. Gas explosion where a friend was burnt but I had nothing and took the brunt of the blast. Cracked skull against a pole, my eye sight was to be lost in my left eye, head so swollen I looked alien. Doctors told my parents that I would probably be retarded after that one. Plus when I was young I had many trips to the ER for Asthma, only 3 I would consider life threatening. Plus many more, yet I am still here and have been told that I am the smartest person many people know. My dad jokingly told me I would be a super genius if it weren't for all the head injuries.
I'm really indifferent when something bad happens because I know somehow I will survive. I witnessed a Ford Explorer going around a corner and the front left tire exploded and it started flipping through the air. I ran toward it from about 300 feet away telling my co-workers to call 911. The driver a lady of about 30 years old was bleeding from a head laceration. I got to the vehicle as it was stopping the last roll, it landed upright. Her window was open. I told her to remain calm that help was on the way. I grabbed her left hand and pressed it to her head and told her to hold it there to stop the bleeding. She was asking what happened and was still dazed when all of a sudden she screamed, "Where is my baby?" I had a cold chill run down my spine when I looked into the back seat and saw an empty baby seat. I asked her if she was sure her baby was with her. She started looking frantically through all the debris in the front of the vehicle. I opened the rear door and started looking too. I looked around the vehicle real quick to see if the baby had been ejected. She was really screaming and frantic. Who wouldn't be? She found him under his blanket asleep behind the drivers seat in the floor well. When the paramedics arrived I directed them to her and they started their work. Then one of the paramedics said, ok, now it's your turn. I explained to him that I was not involved, only a first responder. He said sure fella, come sit on the curb for me. I told him no and he threatened to have an officer arrest me so he could provide medical. I said fine. I mean I was covered in blood from the lady. He took my blood pressure and said, hmm that's weird. I said, let me guess it's normal right. He took it again and said yea. I told him again that I was not involved. He said, yea but even if you weren't it's normal. I told him I have been through so much in my life that it takes quite a bit to get me excited.
I have been witness to many things that I can not explain. I saw a section of the horizon just blink to black then back again on a road trip, looked like digital dither effects. I saw a "human" bird at night on the Grand Mesa.
Still waiting to see a UFO or a ghost.
But I do know that I can remember things from when I was an infant to now with no gaps. Every day I consider a bonus for me since I should have been dead long ago. Nothing really surprises me anymore and it seems that people are getting dumber all the time. But, I'm still kicking, good enough for me.
Been dead for a couple of minutes a few times and I've never seen a light or dead relatives or anything that would indicate an afterlife of any kind. Just fade to black then woke up with a paramedic working on me telling me they lost me for a minute or about how lucky I am.
edit: I forgot, my eyes turn from a bright green to hazel and my hair is graying now, but goes back to black. Most notable in my eyebrows. I have friends that think I never age. I have a 2 years younger brother that looks 10 years older than me. I'm the only one in my family that does not use eyeglasses or had my vision corrected. Also, only one without braces, good teeth. An uncle once remarked that I was the milk mans kid. But I know he was kidding, I look just like my dad.edit on 12-5-2011 by d4ng3rm0u53 because: to add brain fart additions.
