    I have a list, enviable list:

    Helping a friend pull a pool tarp over a pool when I was 6. I was under tarp crossing pool, lost breath halfway across - started gasping. Friend caught my attention and coaxed me to side of pool. I was close to passing out.

    Drunk driving in 20's and lost control of car falling asleep, did a 360 on the highway into the median. Recovered and drove home, nothing sobers you up like that.

    And biggest yet, very very lucky - lost control of my car and parked it between 2 houses, six inches to spare on both sides (right after work, no drinking). HEMI engines are beasts. If I would've gotten hurt or gotten into debt, not sure where I'd be now...

    What are you lucky to get out of?

    I got my head stuck under a pool ladder with just my eyes above water. Then I freaked out and broke free.

    Did two 360s on a snow covered highway and went down a tree covered ditch. Amazingly, threaded my way between the trees; did not hit a single one.

    Tried surfing waves out of my league once during an offshore hurricane....was taking a pounding....getting tired. On my way back out, I launched 15 ft in the air over a big ass wave(funboard/no duck dive)....landed rough...was a little confused...next wave snuck up on me...smashed my board into my head. I was then dragged for at least 2 minutes under water by the board and leash. I've always been good at riding out chaos and wave turbulence when dragged under, just relaxing and rolling with it till it ended. But this time I started thinking I was a gonner. Finally I fucking came up...paddled to shore like a MFer...got out of the water, bleeding and flexed at my friends...then collapsed and kissed the beach :rofl:
