It happened 3 years ago when i wanted to bring something from my house to our school carnival. I rode a motorcycle and when i almost reach my house i accidently bump into a car. I fall on that car bonnet and that car got damaged on the head light while my motorcycle got damaged a little bit. During that time, the rain just stop raining and the road were slippery. Luckyly i don't get any injured on my body. Thanks god.

Thank God, not yet. Be careful next time though when you walk in dark alleys, it's really not safe especially when you're alone.

I could say I had such an experience . . . Years ago , when I was little I almost drowned . . . I was at the sea side when suddenly the water became deeper . . . It's funny how people can't control themselves when they are in danger . . . Of course I started to struggle and scream till a someone took me out from there . . . I got so scared . . . but now as you said I laugh about it , yet I know that it was very dangerous for my life . . .

yeah, most of the time panic would get the best of us.. it's really hard to remain calm and have a straight mind when your life is already in danger. even if you try desperately to think about what to do nothing would come to your mind until after the whole situation.. haay.. well, good thing everything's alright. thanks for the response!

I've never been in a situation where I was threatened with violence or should I say where I was acutally afraid of the person. I have been in two major car accidents where my car was totalled. I wasn't hurt in either accident, but the second one the car ended upside down in the ditch and I needed help getting out. We were sideswiped by a motorhome switching lanes and after the accident the driver wasn't appologetic but rather angry that we should have got out of his way. I was too shaken up at the time to get angry and enough other people stopped and kept him away from us. One other thing ticked me off, was that three tow trucks showed up before the police or the fire department. The police officer said they just wait near the busy highways waiting and listening to police scanners for accidents to be called in.

that's really infuriating! the nerve of the driver and the police officers! they said it's really dangerous when a car ends up upside down because of the gas leaking and may cause the car to explode.. it's a good thing you were able to get out.. and nothing like that happened! car accidents can really cause someone's life.. thanks for the response!

Yes I do, almost 2 and a half yars ago. A friend of mine celebrated his birhtday and we all got drunk at the party. When it was time to go home I climbed into my car and sped off like crazy. I was doing pretty good until I reached a curved part of the road. I was going so fast that the car skidded and I lost control of the wheel. I headed straight to a small barrier which crumpled the car. Luckily I was wearing my seatbelt, and it saved my life. I spent 3 days in the hospital recovering from my injuries. When I got home the car had been towed to our house. It was so badly damaged that the insurance company said that it would not be economically feasible to repair it. I kept the seatbelt to remind me of my good fortune.

I'm so sorry this bad thing happened to you! I hope you still live your life without fear from this! I used to live with a sometimes violent man. I stil have a lump on the back of my head from a badly placed wall. I think the worst I woke up around lunchtime with my head under the worksurface wondering how I got there and how to move, I had concussion that time, he left shortly after but I was told I lucky not to have a fractured skull. I'd been unconscious around 18 hours and he'd stepped over me to go to work.

when you said "sometimes" and then told your story, i was thinking.. that's a "one time big time" thing! good thing you didn't have a fractured skull and 18 hours is really a long long time!

Oops i had one more that I forgot about. I was on the Mantis which is a free-standing roller coaster at Cedar Point and the ride started but my seat wasn't locked in place. I was freaking out completely and trying to get it lock in place. Right before we went upside down it finally locked in place if it didn't I would have fell out for sure and at the speed it was going at and based on how high we were off the ground there is no way i could have survived.

final destination 2! have you seen that movie? although, it's really different.. but similar. in a way.. heheh! and wouldn't the centripetal (or is that centrifugal) force would prevent you from falling? well, i don't want to experiment that with a live human being.. just good to know you were able to lock it in time! thanks for the response!
