The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe

I once "died" on a mushroom trip. It was the most intense experience of my life. I watched thousands of years pass by as part of the scenery. I was a tree. I was the earth. I was the mountain I was on. It was amazing.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

Almost lost it once while technical rock climbing... I was on lead with around a twenty foot runout... did a dyno to a small ledge about three feet over head... the ledge had a fracture behind it and gave way in my arms... burst of small rocks and both me and the ledge were going down together... dropped about fifty feet total when I finally caught protection again... lucky that I was about ten feet to the right of my belay, or he would have been killed by the falling rocks and I would have bounced upon hitting the ground after a couple hundred foot drop. Hard to finish a climb when you are shaking like a leaf in a thunderstorm.

Almost lost it in a cave once as well... it was only open for a month or two during the winter because of endangered bats... also had to canoe into the cave about half a mile... while we were in the cave, the sun had come out and melted some of the snow... which raised the water level in the cave... we we were coming out, the water had risen too far for the canoe to fit under a ledge halfway out. I jumped into the water to get leverage against the cave ceiling to pull the canoe through... of course, I forgot that the only reason the water wasn't ice was because of the flow... got a nice bout of hypothermia. By the time we got back to the cars, I couldn't even talk and could barely walk... looked and felt like the village drunk...

wow :shocked:

i had myself a heart attack, ICU and brink-of-death the whole night, pulse falling under an irregular 40 bpm the whole time.
The cart ended up parked in my room.

I'm holding my nitroglycerin spray now, but I know that the sledgehammer that matters will not allow me to use it, and a slightly lesser one will plunge me in a wheelchair or chronic ward bed.

I drank an ass load of beer and then banged some smack ( one of the few times ) and then my friend came over and offered me a ruphie. I, like the idiot I was at that time in my life, took the ruphie and passed out only to ( Luckily ) awaken on my back puking. I didn't think I was going to wake up the next day when I passed out again!

last year i decided to go surfing during hurricane isabel on the east coast, as soon as i paddled out i realized what a mistake it was and was going to head back to shore. somehow i got stuck in a riptide and ended up way the fuck out in the ocean in 25 ft waves... i was scared shitless.

there was no way i could paddle back in without drowning, these waves were so massive and frequent i'd get sucked under for longer than i could hold my breath. finally my surfing buddy back on shore alerted the police, and pretty soon there was a coast guard helicopter on the way and the beach was covered with EMTs, police officers and such people...

eventually this veteran lifeguard swam out to me and had me wrap my arms around the surfboard for a flotation device and he held my head as close to the water surface as possible (by grabbing my ankles and pushing my legs up) as the waves pounded us... we eventually made it back into shore and the helicopter wasnt needed.

it was insane, i was out there all alone at the mercy of one of nature's most powerful forces... i was just crying and praying to myself, i thought i was going to drown. these waves were just pounding me.

someone died from drowning the next day at the same beach. i've only surfed a few times since then, i just have so much respect for the ocean now...

-slipped under the 'safety bar' on a circus ride when i was about 8 years old. holding the bar w/ my hands, my feet were out of the spinning car 20 feet in the air...i somehow managed to pull myself back in to my seat.

-got drunk and decided to climb down a cliff while drunk and in sandals. got stuck...didn't have any way to alert anybody and it was sunset. (it was windy so nobody could hear us yelling) i finally made it up w/ the help of my stuck buddy. it took a couple hours.

kind of exhillerating in the most terrifyingly horrible way possible to almost die...not a pleasant exhilleration until you return to safety...nothing can match that feeling. when i made it up off the cliff i laid down on the ground hugging it and almost did actually kiss it.

Wow Wiccan Seeker, I had no idea about your condition. You've got my best wishes man.

And you may be a future wrinkled old websurfin' geezer, but you're damn well one of the best here. Certainly one of the most informative and responsible posters when it comes to psychoactive substances.
