    Ever Had a Ner Death Experience? Or know Someone, who did?

    I've never had a near death/death experience.

    Have you?

    Do you know someone that did?


    What did you experience?

    I was drinking in the Copper Cup over on Sherman way and Sepulveda one evening and met a fine looking lady who suggested we go to her house and play hide the sausage, so likeing that game I said it was cool with me,
    we were in her bed with the sausage well hidden and some one in the house yelled at her that Vince was home, so she got real excited, seems that Vince was her huband and had a gun. so I grabbed my threads and bailed out the back window into the Palmetto and put my cloths on as fast as i could while making my way to my car and he was behind me some place making a lot of noise and I thought for sure I was dead.
    That being LA, I would say that was damn near death.

    Was taken ill in Eritrea in 1980 - evidently fell off my chair in the office (as Tommy Cooper would have said"Just like that!") and woke up 4 days later in the Paddington Hospital for Tropical Diseases in London !
    Didn't remember a thing !
    Didn't feel too well but don't know if that was near death experience !



    ( it was some sort of violent food poisoning I was told - medivac out by the company insurance plan ! )

    The misses and I where pretty lucky to survive the tsunami, at one point we where treading water in our Phuket hotel room in total darkness. I got a few broken ribs but was otherwise OK.

    3 close calls, racing a kawsaki Mach 3 at Ruapuna circuit NZ , brakes failed completely at the end of the main straight, Coma for 2 weeks and in Hospital for 5 weeks.
    Later that day a guy in a V8 sports racing car died same place.

    In kaikora, out surfing in some massive waves, only two of us out there, one stupid (me) and my rather more competent mate.
    I got dumped big time, cracked a couple of ribs as I my board tried its best to kill me, my mate somehow found me and half towed me half dragged me the 500 M back to shore. Thank you Jeffery.

    The last time I remember, diving for scallops after drinking, (yup another stupid) got caught in a receding tide in the channel then got cramp, too stupid to dump my weight belt and I lost the mouth piece.
    Luckily it was the one time we took my mates tin boat, he found me heading out to sea at about 5 knots.

    Surfing Bali when the horizon went black and the waves went from large to shitting myself large. Had 2 options - try to paddle out and hopefully get over them or catch the first one in. I took the latter option but the wave totally closed out and I didn't make the drop. I was under the water for what felt like an eternity, just going round and round like in a washing machine - eventually gave up and opened my mouth - instant high! No pain and I most definitely saw the light, though no life flashing across in front of me. I don't know how much longer I was under after that but I slightly remember coming to the surface and then lying on the shore in absolute agony puking my guts up coughing the water out of my lungs. That was real pain. But the near going wasn't scary at all.

    I suppose unless your heart stops beating and you have to be resuscitated, then it is not near death enough

    I have had a few situations where I could have died but didn't, but I don't think they count

    Yeah, that does count. Classic...."Vince is home!"

    One: Serving on a destroyer when a cruiser ran over the top of us.
    Two: Being within ten feet when a hand grenade went off.
    Three: Confronting a drunken matelot with a knife.
    Four: Being confronted by a stupid matelot with a 9mm - loaded - Browning.

    Each time I thought it was my last breath! But I lived to tell the tale!

    Orginally, a real "near death" experience, where you may see yourself rising above and seeing you body below, for example.

    But this a near death experience, really is rare, these other cases of "howly sh$t experiences," are just great.

    Keep in livin'

    I did that, but it was more the effects of LSD rather than death

    Shit! That must've been one hell of a wake up call. Did u see it coming or were you soundly snoozing?

    Yeh, I thought a real NDE is when your heading 'hopefully' towards the bright light that is 'heaven'. My mum's friend was a nurse and she's seen countless people die; reckons most drift serenely into the unknown whilst a few, who've had somewhat, darkened pasts, stare horrified as they are on their way out.
    A wee bit scarey, like.

    Not good. Hippy?

    I'm on my ninth life now.

    I've had at least three that I remember. I almost got hit by a car two times crossing the street. One time, I did feel like I turned into a ghost, because I thought I was a goner. It felt like someone pulled me up, because I thought I was already hit. Weird! I still think of it, and that was when I was a kid.

    The second was when I was pulled to safety by a friend. I almost was hit that time crossing the street. I thank him still to this day.

    Another time was when I was bunging jumping. If anyone has tried this, and is afraid of heights, you will know what I mean. I thought I was going to die. Thankfully, I was pulled up by the rope a few seconds before I hit the water at the bottom.

    Apparently I was an hour away from my appendix punching my clock, I had bad stomach cramps for about a day which ended up with me falling asleep in the bathroom, bollock naked and having to be "rescued" by my now wife who got me to hospital just in time.

    Ive been with someone when they died, thats as close as I want to get to a near death experience.

    Shot at and hit in the leg when I was 15 with a .22 cal hit the bone and missed an artery by millimeters.

    Engine failiure on a small boat out on the Solent trying to get into port with gale and 15-20 foot rollers sweeping us toward the English Channel, no lifejackets flares or radio, the only other vessel, a yacht called Circe Girl (which I will never forget) heading for Christchurch came accross our path and had one chance to throw us a line.

    Head on collision between me on bike and oncoming car, very lucky only torn ligaments in leg, concussion and lots of bruises. I flew over the car. Had a few on bikes thats why I gave them up, dropped it on a diesel slicked roundabout in the wet and the car behind me clipped my helmet as he went by, the guy that got out of it seriously looked like he'd shit himself.

    Probably a few more when in drug or booze fueled states.. like the time I jumped out of the back of a bogus taxi in Neasden cos the guy was a crackhead and I wasn't sure where he was taking me.. the car was doing 30-40mph, no broken bones but was pretty bashed up, I think that was better than the fate which was awaiting me. Or maybe he really was just taking me home...

    I had a near-life experience this morning. Went back to sleep.
