What are your near death experiences? Times you looked death in the face and saw your life pass before your eyes.


One day I was at a pool. Was not a great swimmer but managed to dive in the deep end a few times and swim to safety on my own. One time though I couldn't stop myself from sinking and had to be rescued by a lifegaurd.

Thinking I got a girl pregnant and having to tell the parents. Whew.

One time, when I was like 7 or 8 years old, I was in the backseat of my mom's car, and she was trying to park near a restaurant right next to the road.

I thought she was about to park, so I prematurely took off my seatbelt and opened the door, but then out of nowhere, my mom had to circle back the road to get parking, so she went into the road, and I ended up leaning towards the road, and I ended up gripping to the door as hard as a could.

Fortunately, I didn't fall out, and my mom drove back to the parking area.

Could never swim either. Nearly drowned in a swimming pool...


Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I had asthma and once when I was sayyy...5, I woke up and couldn't breathe at all. I still remember this night and I truly thought I was going to die. Then my parents took me into the bathroom and turned on hot water, I inhaled the steam and I was fine.

Probably it was when I was going on a trip by car with my parents, we were on the motorway at night and had been travelling for about 6 hours, we weren't going extremely fast, probably 100 km/h, but when my dad started feeling tired and the car started curving I was quite scared, we almost hit a car in front of us aswell...

I almost drowned countless times aswell :v

Saw a picture of Lena Dunham naked the other day.

At my grandparents' pool when I was probably about 7, trying to swim from the shallow end to the deep end and back. Accidentally inhaled water and passed out. My dad got me out and next thing I remember is laying on the concrete and coughing up water.

When I was kid I was in a pool and didn't know how to swim very well yet, got a little too close to the deep end and started to slip down the decline grade, my dad had to jump in and save me. I was also in a pretty bad car crash once, but thankfully wasn't injured too badly, though I easily could have been.

In November 2014 I almost died after drinking 3 rockstar energy drinks after an intense cardio workout at the gym had to be rushed to the hospital my heart rate was 145 for 15 hours in a row and the experience left me with severe anxiety disorder, panic disorder and some arrhytmia but the good news is I eat better now than ever and try to take better care of myself. Don't ever drink energy drinks they are the devil. For real.
