We have the "What's gonna get you?" thread now we need a what almost killed you thread.

Post up your close calls.

I have a stack of them starting at age 4 with a strangulated hernia then age 10 I swallowed a balloon while laughing with the damn thing hanging out of my mouth. After turning pink, red then blue they took me to the Fairview hospital where the doctor just got back from deer hunting. He didn't even wash up and performed an emergency tracheostomy on me. I lost about a week of my life in a daze and woke up at home on the farm. They said I had been groggy for days then snapped out of it.

As I said there are many more but I'll sprinkle them in later.

That oak tree is gone though isn't it?

I wish ... I'll let you know when we get a little closer to when the statute runs ... Nobody thinks IQ am serious, (well except for Grumpy and my lawyer) but they do think a little more about how much it might cost them the closer to filing time ... I don't bluff so they are in for a pretty serious ride if they think I won't do battle over that thing.

I've only sued twice in my life. And both times I did okay for myself. Mostly because the people I was dealing with were in the wrong and thought just because "I didn't have enough money to sue them" I wouldn't actually follow through. I might not win this one, but if I don't it won't be for lack of trying.

I was a freakin' mess as a kid and it sort of has carried over into adult-hood. At bout 3 my brother fed me a quater and it got lodged in my windpipe. Not sure how i got through it but was rushed to theemergency room. Then not sure if shortly beofre or after I brushed my teeth with PVC glue and the little round ball on the stick attached to the lid. I have been very accident prone my whole life so it's jsut a matter of time before my next "good time" .

Lets see, the guy trying to stab me, the drunk with the sawed off, the guy sitting on my chest trying to choke me, the whatever that put me in the hospital couple years ago now.
