what did you do that your surprised you are still alive? When I was in 8th grade I was skiing with my brother and father at Mad River Glen in VT. Last run of the day, I caught an edge and sailed into a tree backwards. No helmet back then and only fractured my shoulder. Had my head hit the tree I would have been at least paralyzed if not dead. When I was 20, my friends and I were water skiing, I let go of the rope to come into shore. I thought it would be cool to do a flip out of the ski, landed head first in the water. Luckily it was all mud, should have broken my neck, but the mud was soft enough I guess. Your turn.
