i couldn't believe i didn't hit anything else, other than the first impact with the center divider.
And why were you doing 150km/h???.....thats just...facepalm.

wait a minute....if you crashed at aprox. 150km/h..doesnt that mean you were going faster?....

the last glimpse of the speedometer was 150....no doubt that was stupid and immature. lesson learned.
by the way, i never noticed how narrow the bridge is until after the accident. O_o

I've had 3 cases of head injury (each time thinking I was going to die)

1.) When I was about three years old I feel through a glass table. Shards of glass was wedged in my forehead in addition to a minor concussion from hitting the floor head first afterwards. Stayed in the hospital for a good 2 weeks and had 20 something stitches to my head. To this day, 18 years later, my family is still against buying any form of glass furniture.

2.) when I was in grade 3, I was on a see-saw when some idiots and myself decided it would be funny to have someone jump off the other side with me sitting on the opposite side. What followed was a mid-air somersault in a elementary school playground followed by the painful meeting of my head and the centre of see-saw. 7 stitches later, I was healed but with a lifelong fear of any form of cantilever device.
Oh yeah, an ugly scar like harry potter's now resides on my forehead, and hurts whenever I sweat.

3.) About half a year after my experience above. my undivided attention on my bike caused me to flip forwards on the perimeter of the same playground. Only this time one of those little nasty playground pebbles/filler got lodged in the back of my head and caused an infection. A trip to the hospital due to concussion symptoms and 5 stitches later and I'm all good.

- Got into a huge car accident when I was like 3 or 4 years old. Don't remember it at all but my parents said the medics said I was lucky not to be seriously injured.

- I was in the left lane and there was a bus stopped at a bus stop.. the guy behind the bus cut me off and I narrowly missed flying over the median and hitting the on-coming semi

Snowboarding on the Symphony run on Whistler. It was foggy that time and the top of the mountain had almost no visibility. As I was sitting on a slope to rest, from behind, a loose snowboard came flying down and nearly hit me on the back of my head by less than 2 inches. Could have definitely broken my occipital to say the least.

.45 to my head by a shaky drug addict;

5.56 rounds hitting a wall three feet in front of me.

Both in Rio.

Do I win?

Edit: And there was this time too that I was in a 767, and we hit severe turbulence and the plane dropped "about 200 feet", according to the co-pilot after the flight. That was some scary 5 seconds there, but the gun-to-head and bullets-in-the-wall still beats it.

I was about 9 years old in the Philippines on a tricycle (Motorcycle taxi with cart attached to the side, no doors, no seatbelts). Traffic was busy as you would imagine a busy street in Asia full of motorcycles. I got off the seat when we were near our stop at my cousin's house and somehow ended hanging off one of the cart's bars with one hand as the bike was still moving quite fast. I struggled pretty hard not to let go. Luckily, I did hold on until the motorcycle was able to stop. If I had let go I would of probably rolled under a bunch of other bikes.

My cousin gave me shit for forgetting to pay after we got off.

I spent 6 months in the Philippines and almost died at least once.

was drinking, tried the breathlyzer they had at the place and it read .25ish, decided to drive anyways. had 3 friends in the car and they were keep saying, "drive safe." i got annoyed and decided to speed upto 160km/h to give them a 'scare'. suddenly i saw a cop on the other side of the highway barrier and i know he saaw me so i sped more in hopes that i can gtfo of the area before whoever he called on radio can get to me. upon the highway exit i was going ot fast so i started to slide but i managed to control it and basically drifted the whole 'roundabout' exit. slowed down and everyone got home safe no tickets, fucking passed out rightaway on the bed. next time ill drink a little bit less when i drive

a few years ago-747 powerless and in a nose dive,

This summer
--- had a fireball shoot through a 6" pipe my welder was cutting with his acetylene torch while putting on a pressure regulator/guage with a flange on the other side of him, which caused the damn thing to fly about 50feet in the air and almost hit me (PPE or not, that would have hurt pretty bad).

same week i got chased up a tree blind next to my oil camp i was staying in with 5 other guys by a mother black bear and 3 cubs. I was the last one up and it was Face to Face on the opposite side of the stairs from me. Jumped over its foot as i ran up the ladder and no i never spilled a drop of my beer

Then a month after when i left work to come back to BC my friend and i got run off the dirt road by oncoming traffic and the car after fishtail right to the otherside of the road then the ass end went into the edge of the ditch causing the car to whip to the left crossed the road then flipped. got away with a few cuts and bruising.
